From the visit to the medieval village of Monsaraz and to the Alqueva lake:

Reis da Suécia visitam vila medieval de Monsaraz e passeiam de barco em Alqueva - RTP Notícias

In the village of Monsaraz, located on the river bank of Guadiana, the Swedish monarchs strolled by the medieval roads and visited the Church of Our Lady of the Lagoon (Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Lagoa). After being presented by the mayor of Reguengos de Monsaraz with a traditional pottery piece from S. Pedro do Corval (one of the main traditional crafters in Portugal) and a bottle of Esporão red wine from 2003, the King and Queen headed to the marine of Amieira, where they embarked on a boat ride, up to the Alqueva lake (the largest man-made lake in Europe), where they were able to visit the dam.

Perhaps I missed it, but did anybody see a picture of the Duke and Duchess of Braganca attending the return dinner?

There's a couple of photos, but I suppose we're not alowed to post them at TRF...

D.ª Isabel was wearing the same blue dress she took to the silver wedding in Luxembourg. There's a tiny version of one of those photos at Sofia's blog.

Thanks for that link Elsa. The duchess looks good as far as I can see, and she seems to be wearing a tiara and the hairstyle looks nice too! Good that TM's invited the couple btw, royalty has to stick together, esp. since it is an endangered species these days.

A pity the Queen didn't wear the Braganca tiara in Portugal, considering its background.

The Duchess is very pretty in this picture. Good dress!
I like somuch when she dresses elegant things. Most of the times, the Duchess prefers an informal or too casual style. I like to see her sophisticated.

Thanks Elsa! I had given up on seeing a picture of the Duchess, but I am glad you found one. She seems to be wearing some impressive aquamarines, can' t recall that I saw them before!

Here is a picture of the Couple on the Swedish State visit to Portugal.

Thanks for that Regina, it is much clearer than the other things we got to see. Any ideas about the tiara? I can't recall D.Isabel ever wearing it before.
And do you know what orders she and D.Duarte are wearing? The colour seems simular to the Swedish ones though I doubt it is the Seraphim.

It's all very difficult to see. I tried to find on a portuguese forum larger pictures of the Dukes of Bragança but the pictures already posted here are the only ones available. I would love to see Dª Isabel's jewels better.

About the Orders, I know the Presidente Cavaco Silva and his wife received the Orders of Seraphim and the Polar Star from the Swedish King. I have no idea what orders the Dukes of Braganza are wearing.

Perhaps it is one of the orders of the Duke himself? The Order of the Immaculate Conception of Vila Viçosa or the The Royal Order of Saint Michael of the Wing ?

Anyway, I will start a thread about the orders in the Portuguese forum.

She has used it before as a necklace. Check this post, in the thread Bragança Royal Jewels.

D. Duarte's sach is from the Royal Order of Our Lady of Conception of Vila Viçosa and D.ª Isabel is wearing the sach of the Order of Saint Isabel.

This comes a bit late, but here's an article about the painting offered by the Prime Minister, José Sócrates:
DN Online: O QUADRO DADO À COROA SUECA


A portrait of Empress Amélie de Beauharnais (second wife of King D. Pedro IV of Portugal / Emperor Pedro I of Brazil), entitled The Imperial Rose of an Order, was offered by José Sócrates to the King and Queen of Sweden.

The choice of this picture has some explanations: the painting reproduces a portrait that is hanged on the walls of the Palace of Queluz and Empress Amélie (who was so beautiful that D. Pedro created the Imperial Order of the Rose, to honour her beauty) was the eldest sister of Queen Josefina of Sweden and Norway. Moreover, Queen Silvia's Brazilian mother descends from Portuguese explorers and she had lived in São Paulo, between the age of 4 and 14.

The painting that was offered to the Swedish Crown is a characteristic work by João Figueiredo, a 37 year-old Portuguese painter, who dedicates himself to recreate classic portraits, by applying modern techniques.

Thank you very much for this additional information, Elsa!
Now this is indeed a very thoughtful present on the occasion of a state visit, taking into account the Royal couple's family history on both sides.
It's a pity that the article doesnt show the painting of Empress Amélie itself, I'd love to see it.

I don't have a photo of the recreated portrait, but I have one of the original picture that is hanged in Queluz:

I believe João Figueiredo's work was adorned with Swarovski crystals, since that's one of his most characteristic techniques.
