My mum remembers that performance!

And the Connaught crown... That must come from Margareth of Connaught, King Carl Gustaf's grandmother.

That's nice that ABBA sang for the queen before Silvia even became queen.
I heard the 1993 version sang by the princess of Ruess and she still sounded great without the other members of the former group.

I think Agnetha got a brilliant voice, v nice soprano, but Anni Frid got an unique sound in her messo-soprano voice and I think the "secret" of the ABBA sound v much is about the voises of the two of them together.... and I think (please dont hit me ) Agnetha is exchangeable but not AnniFrid....

I agree with you at all...

While I would never say that Agnetha's voice is 'exchangeable', it's definitely true that Anni-Frid's voice was always technically far superior, with a much wider range of tones as well as expression.
I remember seeing a clip from the US 'Dick Cavett' talk show from the late 70s where Anni-Frid jumped into improvising a short bit of an apera aria and it actually sounded good - something Agnetha simply couldn't have done.
But both their voices remained amazingly unchanged in later years, as you can hear on their solo albums.
With (Princess) Anni-Frid having become a good friend of Queen Silvia since the 1990s, I wonder if there might be anything in the works to pay tribute to the next Swedish Royal couple in summer 2010.
I have no idea if the two As would ever want to sing on stage together again, but yet another Royal pre-wedding gala thirty-four years later could be the one occasion for which they might be persuaded to do so...

Frida from "ABBA"

I remember I've read somewhere that the ABBA singer Frida married a Swiss prince or aristocrat.
Does anyone know more on this subject?

On 26 August 1992, Lyngstad married a German nobleman who was five years her junior - the late architect Prince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss of Plauen. She is officially Her Serene Highness Princess Anni-Frid Synni Reuss, Countess of Plauen.

Thank You!
Does she have any children in this marriage?
