Opening of Parliament 2014

The events surrounding the state opening of parliament have just been added to the court calendar. It will take place on the 30th of September and the entire royal family will be in attendance, including Prince Carl Philip, and therefore Sofia will most probably attend as his fiancé, like Chris did last year, this will be her first representational event if I'm not mistaken.
The events will include:
. A church service at the Cathedral in Stockholm
. The actual parliamentary session where the King will officially open parliament, at the Houses of Parliament, The Riksdag
. A performance at the concert hall (in the past years including last year the performance used take place at the royal opera house...I wonder why a change in venue)
And the whole thing will most probably be televised like it usually is

Chris and Madeleine were married last year when he attended the state opening of parliament so that was not strange, was it?

Whether Sofia will attend remains to be seen, when I read this post:

Perhaps it is different now, or not. I am curious either way.

And she was already by Carl Philip's side at Victoria's birthday concert, so according to me that was her first representational appearance.

P.S.: Is she now allowed to accompany him when he does his patronage visits? Even abroad?

yes you are right about that, I got mixed up because it was his first time attending the events.....Well Victoria's birthday was her first official appearance with the family but it was a family affair as opposed to the state opening of parliament, which in my opinion is more related to representing the nation.....and as Carl Philips fiance Sofia can attend all the events he is listed to attend I think, both local and abroad...for instance Prince Daniel attended Queen Margrethe of Denmark's birthday celebrations back 2010, even though they werent married yet.

That is true, that was more a family appearance and this is a nation-thing.
We will see on September 30th.
And on September 24th Carl Philip has an attendance at the opening of the Carl Larsson. The Good Life exhibition in Copenhagen.
So if Sofia is now allowed to accompany him there might be a fair chance of her also being there. At least I hope so, I think it is high time that we see them together (officially) again.

Well, I think that if Daniel did not attend she will not go IMO. It would be really strange is she went there while the future prince consort didn't go...

Actually they are alternating between The Royal Opera and The Concert Hall. Last year at the Opera and 2012 at the Concert Hall. So it's business as usual.

Exactly, I want to see more of them together before they get married and before the events surrounding the wedding start.

I do not think she will attend the opening of state parliament - considering that there is no precedent - but it is fun to dream.

Perhaps she will join Carl Philip for his visit to Denmark, then we will at least have seen them together again when he has to sit alone for the last time when parliament opens.

Princess Madeleine will not attend the opening of parliament, her name has been scrapped from the calendar on that day.

For those of you who wants to get in the mood for the Opening of the Parliament. See the opening from 1974, 40 years ago, on SVT Play.

The link doesn't work, and it is a link to SVT website, not BBC.

According to SVT play, SVT Forum sends in their program live from the opening at 13.25, here is the link
http://www.svtplay.se/video/2351850/svt-forum

Here is a link to the live broadcast at the website of the Parliament, it should be in english.
Opening of the Riksdag session - Riksmötets öppnande tisdag 30 september 2014 - riksdagen.se

Sofia Hellqvist will attend at the opening. Princess Madeleine and the family is left in the United States because of her work with Childhood, says Thorgren.
Princess Madeleine has long stood as a participant in the royal calendar, but her name has in recent days been removed.
- It is not always that everyone can join, but it is a goal that the family has, says Margareta Thorngren.

So once again, it is different when Sofia is in question. Daniel and Jonas didn't attend at the opening in 2009.

Live broadcasts, the royal family arrives with the carriages to the Parliament just before 14.00. Or they should have, they are late.

So sad that Chris and Madeleine weren't there. I would have loved to see the whole family at an official event again.

Victoria looked wonderful. She has grown on me enormously during the last few years. She seems really at home in her job as Crown Princess nowadays ( I remember years long ago when it looked very different). I liked her outfit very much. Black and cream-white. Perfect for the occassion. And her hairdo was nice too. I like it when she wars her hair like that.

I'm also mighty surprised. I didn't expect Sofia to be there, even though I always liked her and was already sad that we wouldn't see her there this year. IMO she had a good premiere at an official royal event. She also has a nice outfit but it's sad that she didn't have a single little extra in a different colour than black. OK, she has a white cluth and a bit of white colour in her facinator, but a brooche like the queen had or a necklace in white would have done her good. She looked enormously dark in most of those pictures.

I did like that Sofia was appropriately dressed, but I wish she'd stop with the always looking for a camera to look at. At this point that's my only gripe with her.

Is it usual practice for the women to wear black and white?

All three have, with Sophia almost duplicating the Queen's outfit.
