Well, you might want to play the clip of the program again. I don´t know where to find a clip of the music.

Why would you want variety? They look great in those outfits. Madeleine looks about 4 years younger.

Its just that this is the same outfit they wear every year.

Given the fact that the Bund (the norwegian traditional dress, that varies from town to town), I can't imagine that there is no variation across Sweden. I know in Germany, in the south there is variation from town to town, and I would imagine in Austria, there is also variation?
Yes. There is variation. I have seen traditional dresses that vary in color and in style from village to village and province to province.

So .... given there is variation, how come the Royal ladies don't represent all of Sweden through the years on June 6?

Don´t know why they do not. The first march was written for Queen Victoria. It is called "Drottning Victorias präsentiermarsch". The leader of the Army Band that was on stage wrote a march for Victoria when she turned 18. I liked the music they played when the flags arrived too.

Looking at todays photographs, the Crown Princess looked very much like her father.

Yes, in Austria this traditional costumes also vary from town to town. But if you want you can also wear a main cut, but different colours/patterns etc. So I had as kid different ones (-> confession time). But if you belong to a certain group you wear the same as the group.

Growing up, it was pretty funny wearing German Lederhosen (with two zippers) in Canada. :)

Thanks for the pictures, Lena.

I didn´t see too much of the Royal Family, could not turn all to my left. From the beginning we where supposed to be closer but one hour before the broadcast SÄPO ( the security) made som discision to move us...
Hope you enjoyed the day and the song. I´m glad you don´t know swedish ( allmost evereyone of you anyway). The lyrics to "Sveriges flagga" is so patriotic (à la 19-th century) it makes me blush

Yes. I can´t say that I heard you, Alva, but the choir did sound good. Too bad about SÄPO though. I hope you had fun.

So you´re the cute one :flower: Well, it´s not easy to judge, because the quality of the livestream here wasn´t that good, I bet the Swedes who could watch it on TV saw more. But from that what I could see, I would say you´re "snygg" :flower:

To me it seemed as if Madeleine and CP would have looked directly at the choir...they sat down later.

Ja, look at that vacker flicka in the front row. She is more snygg than Madeleine. Don´t you think?

If only... But I doubt it. Madeleine is always the most "snygg". according to the media people.

Thanks for posting, GrandDuchess Wow, here it looks as if Madeleine would have a little halo/gloriole
That "Len" ..... quite a beautiful girl when she's not moody.

Now you making me blush again, or is it just the sun from the long hours at the rehersal earlier today? Thank you for the warm thaughts ( correct spelling???) coming all the way on the internet

Hm, good question! Does the plan of Dennis and me finally bear fruits, and Elisabeth Tarras Wahlberg ( affectionately called "ETW") became member of the Royal family :P
To stay seriously, couldn´t it be that this is princess Christina?

But princess Christina had no offical duties this week So maybe it´s a member of the government (?)

I'm not sure about your 'taste' here ... imho ETW should be fired for conspiracy against the throne, for getting CG into hot water with his remarks to the Sultan of Brunei. :grrr: :grrr:

I did not get a good look at her during the concert so I assumed it was a sister.

Hm, I wouldn´t blame ETW here! It was rather an awkward mix out of the statements of the king, the bored press and the "false" government!
But you don´t have to take our (or my, Dennis could get upset, when I talk about him in his absence) admiration for ETW too seriously. I just figured out, that she´s soooo stiff, that she´s probably the most regal person at the swedish court

You mean, she is showing to all that she is ... or rather, should be the real Drottning!?!

Yes. The Bruneigate was the result of several things and to blame it all just on ETW is unfair.

Yes. It was the Army band. They were pretty good.

BTW when Madeleine is dressed down and is wearing a ponytail then she looks far more like her big sister. So is there a reverse possible as well...if Victoria would dress up more and wouldn´t wear a ponytail then she would look more like Madeleine (?) :P
