Does someone know, why Infanta Christina of Spain attended the nobel-banquet in 1990?

Perhaps because Octavio Paz (Mexican) was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature?

Felipe Prince of Asturias was present at the Nobel Award ceremony in Stockholm in 1991. I can't find any Spanish laureate that year, so what might have been his reason to attend?

New Nagging Question

While doing research about the Swedish jewelry collection, I stumbled across these pics (see links below) from Scanpix. They are labled as the 1975 Nobel Prize Ceremony in Stockholm. I thought they were mislabeled until I looked at the third one which shows the Nobel Prize winners.

The reason I doubted the label was because the venue is obviously in a stadium/auditorium with the prize winners and royals in the center of the floor not up on a stage or on the first row of the royal opera house as in earlier Nobel ceremonies.

In addition, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Prince Bertil are joined on stage by Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik of Denmark.

Aage Bohr, of Denmark, shared the Nobel Prize in physics with two others during the ceremonies in 1975. Other royals have attended and not been seated in such prominence. I know that Infanta Christina of Spain and Princess Benedikte of Denmark both attended the Nobel ceremonies and banquet before, but I have never seen someone other than the Swedish Royal Family in the places of honor. Has this been done any other time? And for what reason were Margrethe & Henrik awarded this honor? Because she was queen and a Danish citizen was receiving an award?

I have no answer to your "Margrethe- question" but in 1975 the Ceremony took place at the St. Erik International Fair (Stockholmsmässan) due to special commemorations of Nobel history that required large seating capacity. In 1975, it was the 75th anniversary of the Nobel Foundation that was being commemorated... (at scanpix they tell the Nobel prize celebrated 100 years but thats wrong!)

Apparently Crownprincess Victoria won't attend the Nobel Prize this year.
It seems like she is going to Mandela's memorial in South Africa with Sweden's prime minister.

She had flu. Princess Desirée Baroness Silfverschiöld (3:rd sister of the King) replaced her at short notice

Thank you. I didn't think that as she was sick at the 2012 Nobel Prizes but still attended.

There are more than one kind of flu and different intensity. Why would 1980 have any impact on 2012?

David Chipperfield Architects has won the prestigious competition for Stockholm’s new Nobel Centre
The RIBA Gold Medallist saw off two rival shortlisted studios – Sweden’s Wingårdhs arkitekter and Johan Celsing Arkitektkontor – to be ‘unanimously’ selected for the high-profile job.
Chipperfield said: ‘We are extremely excited and honoured to have been selected to be the architects for the Nobel Center. We look forward to working together to develop a building that reflects both the values of the Nobel Prize and the high expectations of the citizens of Stockholm.’

Great photos of the new Nobel Centre, which is to be inaugurated in December 2018.
