And today at 13.00 its time for Peter Englund to show up behind the grey door in Börshuset and tell us about the prize in litterature...

Peter Englund is the new permanent secretary of Svenska Akademien and he is a brilliant autor! ( Peter Englund - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
I think its a bad thing he now is one of the 18 in Svenska Akademien, bacause that means HE is not going to get the prize...
When Englund became the new permanent secretary (and public face) of the SA he unfortantly closed his wonderful blog down... you can still read it (if you understand Swedish or have good translator stuff....)here: Peter Englunds blogg

Now that CP Victoria and P Madeleine are engaged does that mean we will see Daniel & Jonas at the banquet? Or do they have to be married? What is the Custom?

It is one of the most important events for the Swedish Royal family so I think it's a small chance that you'll see them at the dinner. But if they are I don't think they'll be sitting next to the princesses at the head table instead sit with other important people, like the government at a side table.

At an article in Aftonbladet president of the Nobel Foundation, Michael Sohlman, tells that Jonas Bergström will participate at the Nobel festivities, but Daniel Westling is still recovering from his kidney transplant operation and his doctors have advised him not to participate because of the risks of infection.

This is actually a rather weird decision.
Daniel Westling has been on a skiining holiday in Austria with his fiancée last week, he attended the UN jubilee concert, and he went several times to see sports matches in stadiums packed with people.
Either he did suffer a relapse in some form, or the reason for his non-attendance is a completely different one.
It would have been very wise of the Bernadotte press department to issue a statement on their own saying that following tradition, the fiancés (both) do not attend the Nobel festivities until after the wedding(s).
This would have prevented any speculation.
I just hope that Jonas Bergström will not be seated on stage with the other family members during the ceremony; such an image of a 'lonely', unaccompanied CP Victoria is the last thing the Bernadottes need right now. All the European gossip rags have been provided with their Nobel story now anyway, about 'sick Daniel and sad Victoria'.
Not the best way to handle things, IMO.

I agree that this descition that Daniel will be home seems a little strange, all swedes could see him on tv just a little time ago at the concert for UN child convention, makes it a bit strange that that would be ok and the Nobel not. Maybe they want Daniel to make his Nobel debute next year when he´s had a little more experience, but then they should have saved Jonas another year too... Well we will see on Thursday - I can´t wait it´s one of my favorite days of the year

According to Svensk Damtidning, Daniel Westling will be at Victoria´s side at the Kings Dinner for the Laureates on Friday.
Jonas Bergström kommer på Nobelfesten – men inte Daniel | Svensk Damtidning

The informationchef of the court, Nina Eldh, says that Daniel is very well, but at the flu times it is better to be careful. Compared to the UN concert a couple of weeks ago - there was only a concert, Nobel festivities are much longer, they last for several hours and there are a lot more people than at the concert. Daniel´s kidney transplant does not make him more receptive to such as swine flu. But the consequences may be far more serious for people with kidney transplant than for "normal" people, says Antonio Barragan, Chief of the Infectious Diseases Institute.
