Queen Silvia looks wonderful. The light pink adds a feminine, youthful touch to the whole look. Sweden should be proud of a Queen that not only works hard but looks good doing it! :)

Thanks,

I'm watching CNN and looks like there's an explosion in Istanbul.
If the King & Queen are visiting Topkapi today, then they're in Istanbul.
I don't know how the bomb blast is going to affect their schedule.

a not so good news..


Istanbul, TURKEY: Turkish teenager Aysegul Goksen, who was hit by a car carrying the Swedish royal couple, is seen in front of the Taksim First Aid Hospital, in Istanbul, 01 June 2006. A car carrying Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia hit Aysegul Goksen while driving the royal couple through Istanbul on Thursday, an AFP photographer saw. The 18-year-old woman fell to the ground but did not appear to be injured, he said. She was taken to hospital for a check-up. (from STR/AFP/Getty Images)


Aysegul Goksen sits surrounded by a police officer and passersby after a car carrying Sweden's royal couple Sweden King Carl XVI Gustav and Queen Silvia hit her in Istanbul June 1, 2006. Goksen was not injured in the accident but was taken to the hospital as a precaution. (from REUTERS/Stringer)


Turkish teenager Aysegul Goksen, center wearing a black shirt, is comforted by passers-by after she was hit by a car carrying Swedish royal couple in Istanbul, Turkey, Thursday, June 1, 2006. A car carrying the Swedish royal couple hit a Turkish teenager on her way back from a trip to a museum. The 18-year-old girl did not appear to be injured but was still taken to hospital for medical checks as a precaution. King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia were on their way back from a visit to the former Ottoman Palace of Topkapi when the accident occurred. (from AP Photo)

ps. it's quite ironic that there's no pictures of King & Queen visiting Topkapi yet, but i'm sure the photographers are there since these pictures could come out..
