There is an intriguing hypothesis, Lena. Unfortunately, I do not find that to be true. But I may be wrong.

That Victoria looks more like Madeleine when she is dressed up. It´s funny earlier, KC said that Victoria looked more like her father in the photos from today. And I was thinking that she looked more like her mother.

Dennism ... with all due respect, would it be possible for you to take Victoria off that very high, mighty and very white pedestal ?


.. or, at least lower her ?

Thanks for misquoting me .... I could have sworn I made a reference to a heritage of a Brazilian origin. I didn't know that part belonged to the father's side !

Well, actually we can´t know...we would have to take Victoria to a solarium and "roast" her there...and we would have to dye her hair blonde BTW do you think that this now is Madeleine´s natural hair colour??
Hm, here I agree with KC! In the last couple of years Victoria´s bone structure changed to that effect that she looks more like her father. And as the bone structure ( in the opposite to the cartilage structure) is completely full-grown at the age of 24/25/26 I would say she doesn´t change anymore really. Probably also the puppy fat in the face won´t come back. She will get some wrinkles-of course (maybe not before her "little" sister ) but on the whole I would say she is and stay completely daddy´s girl (in both...look and character)

Where does this come from? I have come a long way in this. I may not show it always on the board but I have been better in not putting her on the pedestal.

imo Victoria has a pretty square jaw. Hard to say, which side of the family it comes from.

I would say the chin is from her mother´s side, esp. from her late grandma Alice. And maybe a little bit from her father´s side too...

If you mean the guy with the beard...that´s Björn von Sydow, speaker of the swedish parliament.

Hm, Madeleine always looks on the national day, as if she would have partied the night before...is there a special tradition in Sweden, that youngsters party in the night before the national day?

Probably a tradition for Madeleine!

She probably was thinking of the Gucci Boutique and shopping there with her good friend, Lena. :P

With the same traditional clothes and hairstyle (ponytail), we'll have a hard time identifying the pictures later as to what year was it taken. It's very similar to what I've seen in June 6, 2000 or 2001? 2002 or 2003?

It would be very nice if Madeleine and Victoria (especially Queen Silvia- that's the same look for years now) will vary their hairdo (like what mette-marit does) like wavy this time. What's wrong with a little hair clip or hair flowers :flower: or wear it straight or wavy or maybe with extensions

I (enemy of the ponytail) agree here completely :P The only problem with Silvia is, that we don´t see much of her hair, because of the hood...so it doesn´t make much sense to have a complex hairdo.
For the 2 princesses I would suggest something simple and decent( I mean it´s clear, that they have to wear these traditional costumes and no gala dresses&#33, but much more impressing than a ponytail. E.g. what do you think of this?

yes, thats a very nice variation Lena. Or they could do the parted variation of that one :flower:

And yes you are right about the hood on Queen Silvia.

It has also a more pungent and gloomy reason. For the last years the Parliament, dominated by republicans, has given The Royal Court so little money, that The Court has been loss-making several years. His Majesty has often paid The Courtiers' salaries by His own private money. Last year the administration of The Royal Castles had a deficit of SEK 2.2 million. The Royal Court must therefor promote it self and The Royal Castles in order to attract more and new visitors. Thus The Royal Court has to trust in gate money!
Well maybe the king should found a private castle running company! Which takes over all employees, gets all the money from the state, he and his family is employed in. And finally if the loss is to big this company can get bancrupt all the employees do get fired. And as responsible head for running the company some prominent politician. So they can control that the money is used correctly. And finally its their problem then!
Then i would fire som employees and replace thme by cheaper onse from the new european unioun members.

The Royal Castles are not Private Royal Property, but State Property. The responsibility for The Royal Castles as a part of our cultural heritage is a duty of The Ministry of Culture, whose Head of Ministry is the Minister of Culture, the aggressive socialist and republican Marita Ulvskog. So basically it already is the politicians' problem, but what would the socialists mind, if our historical momories and our cultural heritage disintegrate? That is their goal!

how did he than gain a loss?
Maybe a state visit should be housed in a youth hostel to save money.

Or presents to them should be sponsored by "Nokia for connecting people" and to save money! ( I know Nokia is Finnish )

Well maybe you should manage to take away the seal of UN cultural heritage for Drottningholm. this would be a total shame for them/her. Everybody in Europe would lough about the stupid swedish politician!

If the buildings were not mine I would not care as king, even if it they burned down. I just would call the fire department! And write to the parliament in an open letter that they should rebuild them!

So if he is not responsible for the buildings how much money does he get and what is it used for? To pay all the employees and the guards? How mane employees does he have? maybe he should fire some of them!

The Royal Castles are State Property, but His Majesty have them at His disposal, and therefor he also fend for them by order of the Government.

Fortunately the King has more responsibility than you would have, if you were King.

So he has to pay for them?
If I would not have enough money I would save some money there.Its quete expensive to support an old building&#33;

So he has to keep them running and keep them in a good shape and just gets 8 MSEK crowns as far as I know? how dos this working. This lousy castle in my hometown is much more expensive then 2 Mio Euros per year and its just a "ordinary" one. Not a cultural UN world heritage and just one&#33;

No, in 2003 he got SEK 45.3 million from the Parliament (for the expenses of the Castles) and SEK 34.3 million from gate money.
