Swedish State Visits: General Discussion and Suggestions & Musings

Carl-Gustaf did actually visit Scotland in 1975. Still in the UK ofcourse but i don't think he was in England at all ?
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

As the visit was in 1975, Queen Silvia was not a part of it as it was still a year until the wedding would take place. The eldest sister of the King,
Princess Margareta Mrs Ambler who already lived in England acted as the
Swedish first lady during the state banquet at Holyrood House.
Prince Charles and Princess Anne was also given the order of the seraphim during that visit and The Duke of Gloucester was given the order of the polar star. Queen Elizabeth II was also given the seraphim collar (already a member of the order since 1954).

I asked my danish friends too and the danish visit to Queen Elizabeth II in 2000 was indeed a state visit. Would be great to see Carl-Gustaf do it too.

The Authority for Statistics (SCB) has updated the largest export markets for Sweden during 2014. Norway is still no 1, and Germany is keeping the 2nd place, while UK is new no 3.

This makes me think that it's really time for new State Visit to these countries, especially since it's long time since the last ones.

Swedish State Visits: General Discussion and Suggestions & Musings

Hopefully we will see outgoing swedish state visits to Germany and UK again but if there will be anymore Swedish-Norwegian visits during these reigns it's Harald and Sonja who should visit Sweden as they last did it in 1992 and Carl Gustaf and Silvia visited Norway in 1993.

Hopefully we will see an outgoing Swedish state visit to Luxembourg soon as Carl Gustaf haven't done that yet and Henri has been Grand Duke since 2000 and did a state visit to Sweden in 2008.

Yes I agree with you. This might be a possible state visit for this fall.

Today the King hold an audience for the Minster for Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström. Even though all publicity for this meeting in the Swedish press is about the recent diplomatic crisis with Saudi Arabia, it was the planning for upcoming state visits that was the major topic. No news about potential state visits however after the meeting.

Hopefully that means an outgoing and / or incoming state visit will be announced soon.

And hopefully he teached her a lesson or two in diplomacy ;-)

We could now look forward to an incoming state visit from India with start May 31. We'll have to wait for press releases from the Royal Court and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, however the website of the Mounted Royal Guards states:

"Under 2015 är ett statsbesök från Indien inplanerat den 31 maj med kortege under eftermiddagen."
"During 2015 is a state visit from India planned on May 31, with a cortege during the afternoon." (my translation).

Also the closing schedules of the Royal Apartments at the Royal Palace of Stockholm has indicated an incoming state visit in this period.

Relations between the Windsors and the Bernadottes are rumored to be somewhat cool after King Carl Gustaf rejected a possible match-up with Princess Anne back when he was still single and the plans to marry Prince William to Princess Madeleine went nowhere. Prince Charles is also often quoted as having openly criticized Victoria when she and Daniel became a couple.

Just gossip of course.

There have not been many Royal State Visits to Luxembourg since Grand Duke Henri became Gand Duke. Only King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia and Queen Beatrix.
But i think it is really time for a swedish State Visiti to Germany as the last one was in 1979 so 36 years ago.

It would indeed be nice to see state visit to both Luxemburg and Germany, I hopa and guess both of them are in the pipeline and will take place in a couple of years.

As reported by LadyFinn is the King and Queen paying a state visit to Lithuania in October. Statsbesök i Litauen 7–9 oktober 2015 - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]

It seems like most of the state visits that have taking place the last years are to/from countries around the baltic sea. But no monarchies...

Has the King not paid a State Visit to the UK except for a visit to Scotland 40 years ago?

Interesting. A very important state visit as well to strengthen the connections with the baltic countries in the new political climate :) Hopefully we'll get one more incoming state visit too before the end of the year. I've heard rumours there may be an incoming state visit from the president of Chile this year or next. I really hope it's true as i am born in Chile and was adopted to Sweden when i was 6 months :)

Usually state visits to and from monarchies are being done quite early in the reign of a new monarch so i am sure we will get incoming state visits from Spain, NL and Belgium in the upcoming years. And it's QMII:s turn to go to Sweden too.

I agree with you, and this vist has been rumored for a while. We see a clear tendency that the cooperation with the countries around the Baltic Sea are seen as more important nowadays.

That would indeed be nice to see! Have a President from Chile previously paid a state visit to Sweden?

I somehow think that the Spanish King and Queen will be the first one of the new Royal Couples to pay a state visit to Sweden. I have two reason for this, Spain is the country of the three that hasn't paid/been visited for the longest time. The Swedish RC paid a state visit to the Netherlands in 2009, and to Belgium in 2001, the last Spanish visit is way longer back in time. The Spanish King and Queen haven't paid an introduction or curtsey visit to Sweden yet, maybe they wait for the "real" visit in due time.

I do hope for a state visit from Denmark, with Margrethe, Henrik, Frederik and Mary. After all it was kind off promised during the Swedish visit to Denmark in 2017, however I don't think it will happen before 2017, since the King turns 70 next year.

Absolutely. The ties to the countries around the Baltic Sea becomes more and more important, eapecially since the quite unstable political situation in Russia.

The King and Queen paid a state visit to Chile in 1996.
The Chilean President at the time Ricardo Lagos paid an official visit to Sweden in 2005 but that was more of a political visit and Prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt did the return visit in 2011.
I don't think there has ever been a state visit to Sweden by a Chilean president.

I agree with you. The last Spanish state visit to Sweden was in 1979 and the return visit to Spain was in 1983. It's quite surprising that the new spanish royal couple hasn't done an introductory visit yet. Maybe it will come or maybe a state visit is on the drawing board so they don't see any need for an introductory visit.

I won't be surprised if we will se a danish state visit to Sweden in 2017, 10 years since the
Swedish state visit to Denmark, hopefully in the summer so they can use the ship "Dannebrogen" :)
It would be fantastic if F and M would follow QMII and PH and carry out engagements together with V and D. Though i don't expect it but see it as a nice bonus if they do.

This new trend with state visit to and from the Baltic countries might bring us a state visit to Germany as well.

Very interesting concerning (state) visits to and from Chile. Lets hope that well will see this in a near future.

I think it is 50-50 chance we will see Mary and Frederik join the Regent couple. As Victoria joined the King and Queen in 2007, I don't see it as impossible that we will se a great representation from Denmark. It would indeed be both glittering and an extensive programme.

Definitely. I am sure a future outgoing state visit to Germany is at the drawing board at the Foreign ministry. It is also Carl Gustafs turn to visit Luxembourg.

Yes it would be really funny if it happened. We have a lot of trade with Chile and a lot of Swedish citizens from Chile who are adopted like me or who fled the dictatorship during the Pinochet-era.

It would be funny if Frederik and Mary would follow the regent couple on the next state visit to Sweden (and Norway too). Even though i don't think Victoria would have followed to Denmark and Finland had she been married at that time it would be very symbolic given the very close family ties. I know Carl Gustaf has described Frederik, Haakon and Märtha-Louise as children in his own family and Harald and Margrethe the same about Victoria so the scandinavians are indeed very close :)

I wish I knew what state visits that are in the making at Ministry for Foreign Affairs. As we discussed before are the Baltic countries and the countries around the Baltic Sea seen as very important right now (no wonder why), but it seems that it is on the cost of return visits to previous state visits.

One of these are Luxembourg (state visit in Sweden in 2008), and I hope this will take place next year or following. But I don't think that this is a prioritized visit by the government however.

Denmark (state visit in 2007). It is important due to the family ties between the royal families, but also between the countries. Here I actually think it is only a matter of time, and try to coordinate in the calendar. Almost every year is their a major celebration in either Denmark or Sweden, and I think that they want a a year that is free from celebrations, hopefully 2017. And lets hope that it is two generation state visit with Dannebrog.

Germany. Would not be surprising concerning the countries that are visited. President Gauck paid a state visit in 2003, so it's a bout time for a return visit, and that hasn't taken place for decades. It would be lovely to see Queen Silvia to "come home".

The visit in Mexico in 2002 hasn't been returned. And it seems like the Mexican President pays a lot of state visit to European countries right now.

The president of Peru, Ollanta Humala Tasso, met prime minister Stefan Löfven in Brussels on 11th June and extended an invitation to Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden visit Peru in October.
Peru and Sweden renewed interest in increasing their bilateral relationship

We will see if Victoria goes to Peru, but maybe no state visit to Peru in the near future.
