I hear the royal couple will stay with the guests in Stockholm, Uppsala and Södertälje. Is that right?
When do the guests arrived Sweden. Will the crown princess welcome the President at airport?

Do you know the official program of the three days state visit?

Thanks for the picture purple_platinum. With what I could make out is Queen Siliva wearing a fur or velvet hat? I think Mary's been rubbing off people. It's lovely to see Lilian; she is such a beautiful woman.

Silvia's hat is most likely fur. I just returned from Sweden and many, many women (and men too) of all ages wear fur hats, coats, jackets and clothes with fur collars and trim.

President of Botswana Festus G. Mogae (3L) and his wife Barbara (L) pose for photographers with the Swedish royal couple King Carl XVI Gustaf (2L) and Queen Silvia (R) at the Royal Palace in Stockholm, 21 March, 2006. Mogae is on a three-day state visit in Sweden.

The Queen and Princess Lilian look great! I love the Queen's necklace and brooch, it looks very sophisticated! Nice to see Crown Princess Victoria in a new and somewhat different style, it's very refreshing and nice!

Here are a few more pictures from day 1 (21 March) today, from Pontus Lundahl, Scanpix and EPA via Dagens Nyheter.

I absolutely love Victorias style today - especially the hat and boots - nice to see her trying something new and she really pulls it off great! Silvia is nice but a little to black for my taste, and the fur hat is not that flattering. Can´t wait to see the gala dresses and jewels, let´s hope for atleast something new... :)

Is there no pic out from the Gala dinner held tonight? I have seen one just now on the royalcourt.se but that´s only the king and queen with the presidetial couple, no pics of Victoria :( . The queen wears an all black dress with the nine-prong tiara - seems to look quite good (even though i can´t zoom the pic)

I see now that the king & queen is wearing the Swedish order of the seraphim and not at usual the order of the visiting country, and the president and his wife wears no orders, does anyone know the reason for this? It must be unusual, they usually "switch" orders with eachother as one of the first things they do at a statevisit - or don´t Botswana have any orders?

Victoria wears the strapless Natan dress she wore for Maximas prewedding dinner for the umptieth time, the baden tiara and a three string pearl necklace with a diamond clasp, Lilian in lime green and her laurel wreath tiara. This birthday of Carl Gustav must be expensive since Silvia has not gotten a new dress since May 2004:p

Here is a tiny preview (Charles Hammarsten)

The Kings 60th birthday party better impress us. They have gotten skimpy and need to treat us to some new gowns and a spectatcular event.

I wonder if QS is wearing black out of respect for her recently deceased brother? Victoria, too, is dressed fairly somberly. On another note -- I always enjoy seeing the Swedish carriages -- they are so elegant!

I think this picture is particularly sweet: the Queen holding onto Lilian's hand. It's obvious that they have a very close relationship and that the Queen looks out and protects Lilian.

I am not so convinced of Victoria's look. I don't really care for the hat and in comparison to her mother, who looks so extremely refined and elegant, Victoria looks a bit in a disarray with the knee-high boots, the unbuttoned jacket (though that kind of jacket doesn't really button) and the oddly-perched hat.

Yea I am not a fan of Victorias look either. I think Silvia is wearing dark colors because she is still in morning for her brother. I have always noticed a closeness between Silvia and Lilian.

1. Lilian became more or less a mother figure for both Silvia and Carl Gustav and I'm sure the trio think of her as a grandmother so she's big in the family!
2. I'm not that crazy about Victoria's look with boots and hat but I think she looked smashing on the gala dinner
