They are university students invited to the Nobel banquets, some of them serve as toast masters and so on. In Sweden when a person leaves the "gymnasium" at 18-19 years of age they can wear a white cap as a mark for finishing the gymnasium and that they can go on to university studies. University students often wear the caps at events/festivities that have some connection to their studies.

Thru a lottery who is a student in a Swedish university and own the cap. More information will be here Nobellotteriet

Finnish channel FST5 (who broadcasts in Swedish) is showing the Nobel banquet live via SVT. The king looks so lonely at the dinner table. Victoria, Daniel and Carl Philip are having lively discussions with the persons sitting next to them and Queen Silvia seems to also be enjoying a conversation. Both people sitting next to the king are turned to the other direction leaving the king looking lonely. Even the people sitting opposite right across the table aren't talking to him. I guess no-one dares to talk to him after the recent events..? I feel sorry for him. Yes, thanks to things he has (supposedly, we have no proof yet) done he is now very unpopular but somehow I can't help but feeling sorry for HM.

I just realized why SVT is showing all kinds of interviews etc. just now. Correct me if I'm wrong but was it so that they are not allowed to take pictures or film while the royals and guests are eating? I remember reading somewhere that only between courses and while they are drinking perhaps are they allowed to film the people. Something to do with not taking unflattering pictures of people chomping on a steak etc.

CP Victoria's dress is beautiful and suits her very well! I wish Madeleine would be here tonight but perhaps next year...?
