Great pictures everyone and thank you for posting :) I hope Crown Princess Mette-Marit gets to feeling better soon :) It's too bad she missed this visit. I would have loved to have seen her all dressed up :)

Wasn't there a returndinner? Only one tiara event?

Since this wasn't a State Visit, but "only" an Official Visit, there wasn't a traditional return dinner (not that there are always those during State Visits either, the return arrangement can consist of something in a wide range of things). The return dinner during during this visit was the King and Queen of Norway hosting a dinner at the royal yacht "Norge". There are some pics from that in this thread I believe.

At 1st September King Carl XVI Gustaf will open the exhibition “Myths and Landscapes” at Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde. Was this event canceled?
I haven't see pictures from this celebration.

No, it wasn't cancelled. Queen Sonja also awarded the Prince Eugen Prize at Waldemarsudde. I'm not sure if there are any pictures though.

I read an article in Aftenposten (http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ko...cle1107841.ece) from this visit, that said King Harald spoke in a passable Swedish at a press conference. :) Nice tidbit to know.

I really don't like the tiara Victoria wore to this event. it kind of looks weird. not what a tiara should be. I realize it's very historic but really, I think some of the other tiaras she wears are much better.

her look is wonderful for the rest though. I especially love the hair down. so feminine and youthful.

There's nothing indecent about it at all, she certainly can still afford to wear a dress like this at her age, so let's just appreciate the glitter & glamour of the overall picture she presents!

Yes, I agree with you, Boris. It´s not indecent.

"I really don't like the tiara Victoria wore to this event."

Emma, you are not alone in that opinion. It seems that only a few people like it. I just happen to be one of them.

Queen Silvia is such a beautiful woman and I think she can dress everything without problem, also better than some younger people!

I agree with Emma, I find it kind of weird for the Queen to show that much skin, but oh well...!
I really think Victoria looks fanastic these days, especially her hair at the gala dinner and that beige-ish dresh make her look amazing!

There were some questions about the Orders worn by the Royals for the gala banquet.

King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Madelaine, Princess Lilian, and Princess Christina wore the Grand Cross of the Royal Norwegian Order of St Olav.
The King received this during his state visit to Norway 1974, the Queen in 1982, Pss Lilian and Pss Christina received theirs during the Norwegian state visit to Sweden in 1992, CPss Victoria received it when she reached majority in 1995, and finallt Prince Carl Phlip and his sister Pss Madeleine received theirs during this visit.

King Harald received the Order of the Seraphim when he reached majority in 1958, Queen Sonja during the 1974 state visit to Norway, CP Haakon during the 1993 state visit to Norway, and CPss Mette-Marit received the GC of the Order of the Polar star during the Swedish visit to Norway earlier this year. She is not likely to receive the Seraphim until she becomes the first lady (when her husband is King or her if mother-in-law dies early)
