The Information and Press Department at the Royal Court seems to have as some kind of policy not to make the schedules for state visits etc public on their website for example. I think they should, it would make it possible for people to turn up at different spots to see the royals, and it's always nice to know what they're up too.... Maybe there's a security reason behind it, I don't know...

To get the full programme one has to visit the Ministry for Foreign Affairs' Press Room (one has to be a member of the press to get access to it), or contact the Information and Press Department...

I know that yesterday there was a visit to Scania in the municipality of Södertälje on the agenda, and then a luncheon hosted by the City of Stockholm at the City Hall. And today there is a visit to Ericsson planned, and various engagements in the City of Uppsala during the day.

Yesterday a visit to Scania in the municipality of Södertälje, in Stockholm County, was one of the activities on the agenda for the State Visit. All I've managed to find is three pictures of the King trying out one of their trucks, along with a few articles on him commenting the dangers of the big and heavy trucks of our modern times (there have been quite a few big accidents were the weight have played a role)... No pictures of the Queen (if she was there, don't know) or the President of Botswana... :(

Here are the ones I could find, the first three are by Maja Suslin/Scanpix via Expressen, and the last one is by Paola Noordh via Länstidningen.

GrandDuchess, thanks for the information about the program at yesterday. I think the king and president was by Scania and the women-program was another one.
I hope we will know it asap and see nice pictures from the queen, the crown princess and the Mrs. Mogae.
Did yesterday evening a return-Dinner (perhaps in Grand Hotel).

I hope we will see pictures from the visit at Uppsala today!

Now we know where did Victoria take her love for big trucks (check the Australian Visit thread and you'll know why)

Hmm, it's hard to believe that there was no return banquet (full gala or not!) on this state visit. There must have been, so I miss the pics too!
I like the fact that the Swedish RF doesn't make a big difference when it comes to the globally recognized status of countries paying state visits.
They remain elegant, glittering and do their best to pay their respects no matter if it's Royalty visiting or representatives from more or less poltically 'important' democracies.
Not every Royal Family does this - some of them noticeably dress down for whatever they consider 'lesser' state visits. Very nice touch by the Swedish RF not to do so, IMO.
On a more supeficial note: When it comes to the topic of 'Tiara and hair', nobody does it better than Queen Silvia. Gorgeous, once again.

Of course there was some kind of return arrangement, there always is. But due to the fact that the Swedish press isn't very interested in most of the incoming state visits (or outgoing ones either for that matter) - except the big photo agencies we have no access too - this is what happens. No pictures from most of the events.

There's always a full schedule for the state visits, all of the days, and on this one the royal couple even chose to host their guests all of the days (instead of leaving one of the days to the state/government to handle, like they usually do) and go with them to almost all of the things on the agenda.

I hope Svensk Damtidning might have some more pictures next week, they're my last hope... This week they only had pictures from the gala dinner at the Royal Palace, but those we've already seen.

I think that's a bit of an unfair assumption - state visits are dictated by protocol and where things change, they are done for a reason (eg. sometimes the president/leader is a dubious character/dictator). Let's not forget it's "nothing for nothing" in today's world: the MAIN reason behind everything is always "propserity". Botswana has just about the strongest currency on the continent and has a wealth of mineral deposits like Platinum/Uranium, etc...

I'd be very surprised if you found anything. This part of the world is dominated by the British colonial history and subsequent influence. It came as a shocking surprise when in 1981, thanks to Charles & Di's wedding, I suddenly realized there were OTHER ruling royal families. They are hardly covered in the media here - even when there is a state visit by a royal head of state!! But let the queen of England set foot on the continent...
