One of the hosts of the broadcast from the Parliament said that the Royal Court had let them know that Princess Madeleine couldn't attend because of an upcoming exam she had to study for.

I agree with Lena that she does look more fragile now than before, but I also think that she's quite healthy and fit for her age - and like she's said herself - she'll keep on doing her little bit as long as she can.

Maybe she is sad that her husband is no absolute monarch anymore

She hasn´t always wore black at this event, last year it was quite obvious with the murder of Anna Lindh but this year i don´t really know why, maybe she hasn´t got over it yet? who knows...

Queen Silvia usually wears a black (sometimes dark blue) outfit to the opening of the swedish parliament. I think its kind of a tradition...
I cant remember that she ever wore another colour at this occasion?

Maybe i have mixed up the times with some other event, is it always dark? Wasn´t she wearing some orange suit with that same black hat as this year a couple of years back, or am i completely wrong? Maybe you have pictures?

now I´m not sure either :) But I think so, I cant remember seeing her wear any other colour than black. Victoria, Lilian and Madeleine wears other colours, perhaps you thought of them?
But I´ll check and see if I can find a picture of a colourful queen...

Couldn't they get a better landau than the one being used? It doesn't let people get a very good veiw of the King and Queen. Even the carraige with Princess Victoria was useless with her having to look out of that tiny little window.

They used this landau with the roof up because of the weather. Previous years they've used open one. I it varies from year to year, considering weather and perhaps other things too.

The Opening of Parliament takes place in the middle of September every year, except for election years. In an election year, the general elections are held on the third Sunday in September - and the new Parliament gathers on the 15th day after the election day.
