The king, queen, Victoria and Daniel attended today at the national memorial service to mark the 10th anniversary of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami at the Uppsala Cathedral at 16.00 o'clock. 543 Swedes died at tsunami.

For some reason Carl Philip didn't attend, although he was listed to attend at the court calendar. The royals arriving

Both Expressen and Aftonbladet write about the queen's tears.
Margareta Thorgren from the press department says that the queen was very moved. The king and queen thought it was very emotional. The speeches, the hymns and the music made it a very dignified ceremony, a very sentimental and nice service. The solemn ceremony put much thought into motion. It touched both the King and Queen and the Crown Princess Couple very much, she says.
Thorgren didn't say anything about Carl Philip's absence.

What a beautiful & dignified Memorial Service.

Hard to believe it's been 10 years since this happened. :(

It is almost impossible to believe that 10 years have passed since that day. The Memorial Service seemed very solemn and deeply moving, especially the candal ceremony.

Just something that caught my eye and I wondered if anyone knew why the Crown Princess was seated before the King and Queen?

Maybe the king wanted that he and the queen sit in the middle and of course the crown princess sits beside him.
They have sat like that before, for instance in November.

Yes, the King is centre, directly facing the microphone, whereas in the Cathederal Victoria was on his right as was the front to the church, which meant her candle was lit first. Just a little different.

What a lovely moving service, no wonder the Queen was move to tears.
I wonder why CP didn't attend? I have to say unless he's ill and can't attend (which of course I hope he's not) it's very bad for him not to show up, either the Court have made a mistake in saying he will be there if it wasn't a definite or he has made a huge error by deciding not to attend such an event.

Me neither even though it's gotten a lot better lately. In the excerpts from the book written about a former member of court that's been published lately I get the impression that the press office is often trying to persuade the King about how they think things should be handled in a more modern and effective way but that he's one stubborn and impulsive guy to say the least.

I was also a bit dissapointed that they mentioned CP and then he wasn't there- especially as I feel he and Madeleine conducted themselves so well when this actually took place, and didn't Victoria stay on her holidays? I feel like they 'deserve' to be there more than her. It would have been better not to put his name on the calendar and have him then show up rather than the opposite!

I'd love to know if he was really ever meant to be there or not.

Like it has been told many times, the king makes the final decisions who of the royal family attends at events. So he decided that Madeleine didn't have to be there. Of course one can think that if Madeleine would have insisted that she wants to attend at the service, the king would have taken her with them. About Carl Philip, who knows? Maybe it was a mistake that his name was at the calendar, but it was there for at least a week. Someone should have seen that his name is there and if his attendance wasn't planned, take his name away from there. I don't want to believe that Carl Philip was in Älvdalen with Sofia and was lazy and didn't arrive to the ceremony (Sofia told to the swedish press that they would spend Christmas in Stockholm and Älvdalen).
But as Margareta Thorgren commented about how the king, queen, Victoria and Daniel felt the service, she could have easily said "Prince Carl Philip is very sorry that he couldn't attend as planned because he was ill". But Thorgren didn't say that.

And the king, queen and Victoria attended at the one-year ceremony at Skansen on 26th December 2005. Carl Philip and Madeleine weren't there then either, even though the tragedy was much closer than now.
