The experts of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs briefed today the King and queen ahead of the state visit.

About the visit to Karolinska Institutet
Encouraging collaboration between Iceland and Sweden in research and education _ Event _ Karolinska Institutet

At Stockholm University
The President of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, visits SU - Department of Political Science

Svensk Damtidning writes that king Carl Gustaf has been king for 44 years and leads a royal house where traditions are important. But the king is not the one who says no to something new. And something new we will see on Wednesday.
After the welcome ceremony for Iceland's President Gudni Thorlacius Jóhannesson and his wife Eliza Jean Reid at the Royal Palace's courtyard, the king makes something unique: he collects the media in Lovisa Ulrika's Dining Hall to talk about the state visit.
- Yes, it will be the first time. It is a novelty we have introduced, says Johan Tegel from the court.
- It simply gives the two Heads of State an opportunity to make statements before the state visit.

The Royal court updates events from the first day here. According to the court Daniel, Carl Philip and Sofia attend at the lunch. So obviously Victoria is still sick. Nothing about who attend at the dinner.
At 14.00 the King and the president give statements to the media. This will be broadcasted at court's Facebook.

Queen Silvia and mrs Reid visited the Stockholm City Library. They participated in a seminar on literature. The theme of the seminar was "Found in translation", the promotion of literature abroad and the role of translations / translators in this context. Mrs Reid held an introductory speech titled "Books build bridges".

This article has been updated
"And on Wednesday evening, the court received an announcement - Victoria cancels her entire participation in the state visit. She will also be missing on Thursday when she would have attended among other things at a lunch in Stockholm's City Hall.
- The Crown Princess, unfortunately, can't attend Thursday's program either. It is because of the severe cold. The Crown Princess then chooses not to attend because of respect for guests and visitors, says Margareta Thorgren".

It seems that princess Christina doesn't attend at the dinner (I didn't expect her to attend). Behind Daniel, Carl Philip and Sofia are the queen's two ladies-in-waitings, and the aide-de-camps: The king's first aide-de-camp Jonas Wikström, Victoria's aide-de-camp Adam Nelson and Carl Philip's aide-de-camp Daniel Ottosson.

Everyone looks so wonderful at the Banquet. I thought that the first lady of Iceland has really stepped up her game and I think she has lost a bit of weight .As a Canadian I'm so proud of her, She is so genuine and clever.She is from Canada and moved to Iceland when she met her husband.

Everyone looked very nice from the pics I have seen!! So sorry Victoria is still sick. I also read somewhere that Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia were awarded foreign orders sometime before the banquet. It was on the blue and white sash they all had on maybe? I would assume the King and Queen did too if they didn't already have them. I think this would be Sofia's first foreign order although I can't see it very well in the picture. Can anyone confirm this?

Daniel, Carl Philip and Sofia got obviously the Grand Cross of the Order of the Falcon. King Carl Gustaf has Grand Cross with Collar of the Order of the Falcon. Queen Silvia got Grand Cross of the Order of the Falcon in 1981 when Iceland's president made a state visit to Sweden, Victoria got Grand Cross of the Order of the Falcon at a state visit to Iceland in September 2004. And I think this is Sofia's first foreign order.
They haven't updated the Orders delivered yesterday to the website yet.

Oh wonderful!!! Thanks for the answer Lady Finn!!! I read something about that on Twitter and then couldn't find it. I assumed of course that the King and Queen and Victoria had them already since they just mentioned Daniel, Carl Philip, and Sofia. I just wanted to confirm that those three did receive them and I didn't read that tweet wrong. You rock!!!

During a tour at Stockholm's City Hall on Thursday First Lady Eliza Jean Reid lost her earring.
The eyewitnesses at lunch tell how Mrs Reid suddenly missed her earring and how staff in the City Hall went through the whole tour that the presidential couple took in the City Hall to try to find the earring.
Meanwhile, Mrs Reid took off her second earring.
If the earring was finally found is unclear - soon after lunch, Mrs Reid and Queen Silvia hurried to the next program point.
