I was hoping to see reports of the state visit in Swedish newspapers as well but not a word about it anywhere... Typical. Hopefully later they might mention it somewhere briefly.

I can't wait to see more pics! It's great that Victoria and Estelle will be at the Palace too, I had a feeling they would be there. Mrs Haukio is looking stylish. I read somewhere that the flight to Stockholm was not exactly pleasant and the couple was freezing (army planes aren't very comfy) so Mrs Haukio had to change to her outfit (or "get refreshed") in the VIP room at the airport. If so, I'm wondering were these pics taken after she returned? It would be a bit strange to welcome the presidential couple and then the whole entourage would wait at the runway until the first lady has changed her clothes and returned to take pictures. Oh well...

Still no reporting from any Swedish news media... Only Finnish newspapers etc., the official sites and photo agencies are mentioning this. I think it is downright weird, maybe even a bit scandalous. Yes, I do know that there are lot of other things to report right now (and the Breivik trial in Norway is all over the news) but to leave an official state visit without any notice is rude IMO. Unfortunately I'm not surprised. Of course the Royal family have been kind and welcoming but otherwise I'm starting to think the first state visit should be done to Estonia instead...

These photos that the court publishes on the Facebook site are just ridiculous. Can´t they hire a good photographer?

President Niinistö and mrs Haukio gave as gifts to the royal family:
To the king and the queen - Finnish design glass (Aalto Flower designed by Alvar Aalto), a book of finnish art, and a photo of the presidential couple

To Victoria and Daniel - The newest Nokia Lumia -phones
To Estelle - A pink mini-bag designed by Minna Parikka (she had designed the white clutch Haukio had during the day).
http://www.mtv3.fi/viihde/uutiset/mu...ielille-lumiat

There were finnish school children at the palace yard, they met the king and the queen and the presidential couple. A woman said that "President Niinistö said Hello, the king took a distance, mrs Haukio spoke to the children and the queen said she was sorry that she doesn't speak finnish". Some school girls about 13-14 years old said that the president Niinistö looked like a true president and his wife had lovely clothes.

President Niinistö said to finnish TV, that the lunch was very nice, the atmosphere was very pleasant. They spoke about things which interest all of them. He and his wife congratulated Victoria and Daniel, of course, and Niinistö said that the couple is very, very happy of their child.
