It is nice to see the press coverage of this visit. I don't think many people realize the involvement in humanitarian issues the Swedish royal family has. Their involvement both personally and with money in the aftermath of the tragic tsumani in Thailand to get the local people back on their feet. The King has been very active in the international scouting his whole life which brings youngsters into scouting from all levels of society. The Queen's involvement with child and elderly issue is more well known. By speaking up and by speaking out the issues remain on the front pages and are not forgotten.

Letter Bingo, a clever way to learn Swedish. The King and Crown Princess learned that when they visited Kumlienskolan on Restad Gård on Thursday.

That's a wonderful photo. Victoria looks genuinely happy that the man stopped and asked for a selfie. She seems to be a very warm and friendly person, I like her a lot. I loved the photos from this visit, and it's thoughtful that she visited given the current refugee crisis.

I agree. It's a very appealing photograph. She is totally relaxed with a fan. Very sweet.

The king and crown princess Victoria attended today at the meeting of Council of State (that is how it is now called at the english version of the calendar, previously it was Cabinet briefing).
At the meeting each minister informs the king and the crown princess about political initiatives, reports and pending legislation in their respective ministries and answers questions from the King.

And for all of the above reasons, that seems to be the biggest difference between European Royal Houses.

Victoria and Daniel seem to be very open and spontaneous, comfortable in the knowledge that their security is unobtrusive but efficient. Even Carl Philip is relaxing with Sofia by his side. The younger royals have a much more comfortable relationship with the media, whether it's just that they try to ensure their schedules are promulgated to enable maximum coverage or just because they are young and reasonably good looking is debatable.

Now that's not saying a whole lot considering the absolute debacle with media and Madeleine and Chris. But, compared with the PR coming out of the BRF PR offices it's huge. If they see the media as the enemy they hide it well, except for Madeleine and Chris who seemed to be crushed by it.

Looking at Harry's Wellchild engagement, he was everything and more that they needed but leaving a Club at the end of an evening seeming more than a little tense, something the media were quick to imply was because he was "worse for wear" and "bleary eyed", a situation that seemed to plague Carl Philip before his relationship with Sofia was accepted with it's ensuing engagement and marriage.

So basically, the BRF need better PR and their younger members need a few specialised courses in handling them other than resorting to pouting, childishly ignoring them, or getting angry and using rude biological signs.

This has been changed. According to the calendar the queen attends with the king instead of Victoria. It is a very important conference, so maybe they changed the queen to attend because of that. Or maybe they decided that since Victoria has work events tomorrow and on Wednesday and on Thursday a trip to Luxembourg and then the trip to Peru and Colombia, she will not attend today.

Not really new I'm afraid, it has been known for a week or so. The Treasury at the Royal Palace is also closed and the Court is warning for long queues in conjunction with security controls at the entrance to the Palace.

How long the areas will be closed is not clear.
- It is a temporary measure, but I can not say if it will be for a longer period or if it is changed during the weekend. Our safety is in constant contact with the Security Service and ensures the safety like other organizations when changes occur in the security situation, says Margareta Thorgren.

The Drottningholm Palace park is open, but the parts of the palace open for the public have been chosen to be closed at the moment. The reason is that the Drottningholm Palace is the royal couple's private home, says Margareta Thorgren to Svensk Damtidning.
