Queen Silvia and Madeleine met on Monday at the Royal Palace 7-year-old Enna. Enna is a girl with serious illness and she had wanted to meet them, now her dream came true. The meeting was organized by Min Stora Dag (My Big Day, Madeleine is the patron). Enna had her mother and brother with her.

Enna's mother wears a similar or the same dress like Victoria wore last year on her birthday.

Enna's mother:

Victoria:

I love the background of "Min Stora Dag!" On this day I think every child forget its bad destiny. What a great action!

Most handsome: Prince Carl Philip. He looks just great! The king and prince Daniel look fine, but he's winning the male category.

Winner in ladies category: Crown Princess Victoria. Very simple but elegant dress, and she nails the whole look. Sofia - fine on the upper part, but much to heavy black skirt. And Silvia - what is that? Sorry, but not a good look for her.

I wonder why they all look very smiley in this occasions. Is it because they have to smile to every member who is introduced to them?

From a blog of a woman whose wife was invited to Sweden Dinner and she of course attended with her.
The woman tells that governor Maria Larsson hosted a little mingle at Hotel Sheraton before they went to the Palace. The governor has of course attended at these dinners before and told how the evening would go on at the Palace. After this woman, Sara, had greeted the royal family the guests went to a room where they were photographed. At the invitation was said that the guests may not take photos during the evening. Sara thought it would have been great to have Victoria as a dinner companion, because Victoria is interested in the harmful chemicals we surround us every day. But she sat with Count Peter Hamilton (the husband of the First Lady of the Court countess Anna Hamilton). At the table to her right sat Prince Carl Philip and at the table behind her sat King Carl Gustaf.
After they had eaten three courses it was time for coffee and liqueurs in another room. Then there was time to mingle with the other guests, including the royal family. Sara felt that now was her chance to talk to Victoria. So she went back where Victoria stood with a group of people. Soon Victoria herself began to talk about that it is so scary with all the foreign chemicals that we can get to us and how sensitive children are particularly for those substances. Sara saw her chance, it felt almost like fate, and she began to tell Victoria about plastics and how they now know that all plastics emit harmful chemicals when it gets hot. There is no plastic that could be proven that it does not emit harmful chemicals when the plastic becomes hot. Victoria told that she tries to use plastics at home as little as possible but that she thought it was so hard because they get so much gifts and often it's plastic toys to the children. Victoria told that she thinks it's so scary with micro plastics. When they were down a beach holiday in Greece recently, they bathed on a pebble beach. When Estelle came up out of the water she was all over covered in a shiny thin membrane over the body. First Victoria thought that it was small grain of sand. Until she realized that the it was a pebble beach and had no sand. It turned out that her daughter was completely covered in a slurry of micro plastics. Victoria told that they didn't go to water at that beach again. Sara talked more about micro plastics and was very happy after their conversation. It was clear that Victoria had great awareness at this matter and Sara began to dream of being able to get Victoria to become a spokesperson for these issues. Sara thinks that with a person with so much influence like Victoria the information and awareness of plastic and its harmful impact on both our health and environment would go out incredibly much faster than it does today. For example, a person at Sara's table at dinner who had not even heard that the plastic could be harmful.

Probably yes. Some royals like Victoria look natural doing that though, while others, like King Carl Gustaf perhaps, look fake.

King Carl Gustaf and Victoria met the Minister for Upper Secondary School and Adult Education and Training, Anna Ekström.
Kungen och Kronprinsessan gav företräde för statsrådet Anna Ekström - Sveriges Kungahus

After having met new minister the king and Victoria attended at the Council of State. 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.
Informationskonselj på Kungliga slottet - Sveriges Kungahus

The Minister for Upper Secondary School and Adult Education and Training, Anna Ekström told to Expressen about her meeting with king Carl Gustaf and crown princess Victoria:
- It was a short discussion, where I had the chance to tell about the issues that I have been given responsibility for. I'm very fond of telling about my issues, so that was nice.
The King and Crown Princess Victoria listened with interest when Ekström, among other things, talked about the situation with many new people having arrived to Sweden and how it affects education.
- I mentioned that we also need to take advantage of adult education and folk high schools and that there are many positive forces in our civil society. Upper secondary education is important, but it is not enough.
How was it to meet the royals as minister for the first time?
- I'm glad of all the chances to tell about my important matters. Both the king and the crown princess are very interested in education issues, so we had a nice time.
About the Council of State Ekström said that for her as a new minister, it was a good review of all other issues, an effective way to hear what her colleagues are working with their ministries.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, Victoria and Daniel met today Margot Wallström, the Minister for Foreign Affairs. The Minister gave a presentation of the foreign politics at the meeting.

This time the court publishes also a HQ photo of the meeting
http://www.kungahuset.se/images/200....gahuset.se.jpg

From Expressen
Only a few days ago the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström was at the state visit in Germany with the king and queen.
On Monday afternoon Wallström arrived to the Palace for a special presentation to the king, the queen, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.
- The foreign minister was here to inform the royal family in foreign policy matters. From time to time this is done. It depends on what happens, said director of the press department Margareta Thorgren.
The visit took place just a half day after the highly publicized election debate between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Earlier on Monday Margot Wallström met also the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini who visited Stockholm. The two talked about the war in Syria, security in the immediate area and the EU's global strategy for foreign and security policy.
But neither the court or Wallström would confirm if there were issues that even the royal family were informed.
- There's nothing we can comment on what was discussed about.
- There was a briefing on the major foreign policy issues, says Erik Wirkensjö, Wallström's press secretary.

Previously today the king, Victoria, Daniel and Carl Philip met Krister Bringéus, Swedish ambassador for the Arctic Region.

Madeleine doesn't attend at the inauguration of The Royal Wedding Dresses exhibition, because Leonore and Nicolas are sick. She should have flown to Stockholm in the morning but she stayed in London.

If the kids are not weel, she is absolutely justified. It seems to be true as the spokewoman of the court said that the situation changed during the night.

According to Expressen, Leonore has been stomach sick and now Madeleine is sick too.
- An exhibition of love, said the queen initially in her speech.
Silvia continued:
- These creations are part of the Swedish royal history. But for me, they symbolize also important milestones in our family. Therefore, it feels a little extra solemn to inaugurate the exhibition with my daughter, Crown Princess Victoria, and my daughter-in-law Princess Sofia. Princess Madeleine is not here.
The queen spoke about Princess Lillian's wedding with Prince Bertil, where she attended.
- It was a beautiful and heartfelt wedding. Although it was a rainy winter day there was so much warmth and love, between the two who fought so long and had been through so much together. It is also a welcome return to see one's own wedding dress as nicely presented.
Queen Silvia took the opportunity to address a particularly affectionate greeting to her daughter Victoria, and daughter-in-law Sofia.
- Dear Victoria and Sofia, the dresses here remind me not only about yours and Madeleine's wedding, but also that I have had the great fortune to have children who followed their hearts.

At the exhibition are also on display the accessories, dresses worn at the pre-wedding dinner, outfits of the bridal children.
