State Visit from Chile to Sweden: May 10-12, 2016

State Visit from Chile
On 10–12 May 2016, Chile's President Michelle Bachelet will pay a State Visit to Sweden at the invitation of His Majesty the King. This is the first State Visit from Chile to Sweden. The Government will be involved, with several ministers participating.

State Visit programme points
Tuesday 10 May
The first day of the State Visit traditionally comprises several ceremonial elements. It will begin on the Tuesday morning when the King and Queen will meet the President at the Royal Stables for a procession to the Royal Palace, where an official welcoming ceremony will take place. Representatives of the Riksdag and the Government will be present. A musical setting can be expected as Stockholm will be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest that week.
Prime Minister Stefan Löfven will receive President Bachelet at Rosenbad in the afternoon for talks, followed by a joint press briefing.
Tuesday's programme will end with a banquet hosted by the King and Queen at the Royal Palace.

Wednesday 11 May
Wednesday's programme will begin with a seminar and meetings about trade and business sector issues. There will then be programme points concerning gender equality and equal opportunities, with representatives of the Government, the business sector and civil society.
Stockholm City will then host a lunch at City Hall.
After the lunch, Speaker of the Riksdag Urban Ahlin will receive President Bachelet at the Riksdag.
In the evening, the President will host a reciprocal reception for the Swedish hosts.

Thursday 12 May
The third day of the State Visit will take place in Gothenburg. The theme of the day will be innovative and climate-smart transport solutions in urban environments.
The County Governor of Västra Götaland County will host a lunch, after which the State Visit will end.

So Johan T Lindwall was right, the state visit is on the same week as the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest. One could also guess that by looking at the royal calendar, that week had so far only one work event on Sunday 15th.

This is exciting news! I hope that Victoria will attend at least the banquet. Is there a chance the queen and/or the other royal women (if they attend) will wear a tiara?

Well, as they use the term "banquet" now for almost every dinner i guess we have to wait until the actual day and see wether there will be orders and tiaras worn. If it is a black tie dinner it must be the first state visit dinner in Sweden for an extremly long time that is not white tie.

As it is the first chilean state visit ever to Sweden i guess that the King and maybe also the Queen will recive a Chilean order and President Bachelet will recive the Order of the Seraphim.

As you say, we could never know about the dress code, but I'm quite convinced that the state banquet will be white tie with tiaras and orders.

I checked the website of the Royal Court and the King already has a Chilean order, Grand cross with collar of the Order of Merit. The King must have received the Order at the Royal Couple's state visit to Chile in 1996. They visited President and Mrs Eduardo Frei between 2-5 December. I don't know if Queen Silvia has a Chilean order, it is very much possible.

I doubt Victoria will miss it Its two months after she gave birth to Oscar and I don't take her to be one for a long maternity leave. At the very least I expect to see her at the banquet. Sofia on the other hand, depending on when in April she gives birth, the chances seem much slimmer.

I hope it is the traditional white tie. Love the Swedish events, they have such a collection of tiaras.

Victoria will most likely take a huge part in this state visit unless she is sick. She will probably attend the banquet and other things when her father turns 70 too :)

As you say Sofia might not attend the banquet but other things. Probably depends on how she feels that particular day.

Saw now that C G has the chilean merit. According to Wikipedia Silvia has no chilean order. Maybe she'll get one now. C G probably got it during that state visit wich was the first swedish state visit ever to Chile. Strangely there is no evidence that President Frei Jr got the seraphim during that visit.
Bachelet will likely get the seraphim now as the first chilean President ever to pay a formal state visit to Sweden. But that doesn't say anything about the dress code for the dinner.

How i hate the word "Banquet" when it comes to the royal family ! There should be gala dinner or no dinner ;-) hahah

About Victoria's attendance:
Estelle was born on 23rd February. The new president of Finland, Sauli Niinistö, made a state visit to Sweden on 17-18 April. Victoria attended at the first day only at the lunch at the Royal Palace and posed at the welcoming photos. She didn't attend at the banquet.
On the second day Victoria attended at the reception which the presidential couple held in honor of the king and queen, the reception was much shorter than the banquet on the first day.
Oscar is during the time of the Chilean state visit two weeks older than Estelle was in 2012.

usually the Swedish Court has an odd listing of attendees when it comes to State visits. I guess they will take part in the welcome ceremony and the lunch at the Palace and the banquet in the evening. For the second day the lunch in the City Hall and the return arrangement are possible events they attend.

The court updates the events of the first day here:
Statsbesök från*Chile –*dag 1 - Sveriges Kungahus

The president's agenda at her website tells that Victoria, Daniel, Carl Philip and Sofia will attend at the lunch at 12.30. No mention about that at the court website. We will see.
In the afternoon the president meets at the Adolf Fredrik Cemerery Joakim and Mårten Palme, the sons of Olof Palme and lays a wreath at the grave of Olof Palme.

The president's website had right, Victoria, Daniel, Carl Philip and Sofia were at the official photos and are obviously attending at the lunch.

And stupid headlines at Svensk Damtidning continue "Comeback: Victoria and Sofia shocked everyone" (because they weren't mentioned at the court's calendar)

If she's feeling good there is no reason for her to not do occasional royal duties. I'm glad that both Victoria and Sofia are seen now and then, even though no one would blame them if they were on a full parental leave.

I agree, if she was feeling up to it, no need for her to hide away at home. Alexander will be fine and happy with a nanny, and Sofia likely enjoyed getting out and being part of things at least for a bit.
