The Swede's hand out the Nobel Prizes in Literature, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, and Physiology or Medicine in a ceremony in Stockholm. The Norwegians hand out the Nobel Peace Prize in a ceremony in Oslo.

I usually love the hair pieces Victoria wears but today's was too fake looking IMO. It looked like it was knitted out of wool and just stuck on the back of her head. I also don't think that emerald brooch looked good in the bun either, lovely as it is.

I wonder if there was a thought about Madeleine wearing the amethysts, as her escort at the dinner, the Nobel laureate in physiology Shinya Yamanaka, was wearing the Japanese Order of Culture with its purple ribbon.

I love that Princess Madeleine wore the amethys tiara; it looks splendid on her.

In some of the pictures it appears Queen Sylvia was wiping away tears, was there a sad moment during the ceremony? I wasn't able to watch it.

The banquet speeches of the Nobel laureates were very interesting and some of them were also funny. I especially liked the speech by Serge Haroche, where he managed to tie science and literature together, and of course the mentioning of Schrödinger's cat, and also the speech by Robert J. Lefkowitz, with him mentioning the importance of mentoring younger scientists, but the speech might be considered controversial in the U.S. as he criticized the anti-science bias that are expressed in some parts of the American political establishment. You can find the speeches here: Nobelprize.org

Hmm. While there's an interesting discussion to be had surrounding the issues Lefkowitz mentioned in his speech, I'm not sure I agree with his choice to interject his personal politics into this particular event. His choice, though, obviously.

Do you mean the king's dinner for the Nobel laureates tomorrow evening, as the gala banquet was today directly after the award ceremony? The king's dinner will take place at 19.00, with a photo opportunity at 18,45 on December 11.

Does anyone have any insight on what this was - an item being passed from Prince Madeline to Queen Silvia?

Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony - Stockholm - Pictures - Zimbio

Madeline does look like she is about to be called out at school for passing notes. It could be sharing a throat lozenge or "look at my new ring" as well.

I don't think he was interjecting his politics as much as pointing out how people who are educated still don't buy into what science has proven.

Dr. Lefkowitz, works at the same university, and we are all so proud of him - I've passed a Noble Laureate in the halls, sends shivers up my spine. I only wish the university and local media had played up this story. There was nothing in the news about it.

I believe it is a matter of logistics. When Princess Lilian sat up front it was only four of them, Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian and the King and Queen. If Daniel was place up front and either Princess Madeleine or Prince Carl Philip were absent there would a lone chair back there. If neither Princess Madeleine nor Prince Carl Philip were in attendance Prince Daniel would sit up front. Probably when both P Carl Philip and P Madeleine are married and they all attend, Prince Daniel will sit next to CP Victoria.

I took so many pictures of Madeleine mostly and mother. It's so great to see her, her eyes, her tiara and dress with squares or dots. The train and the color and the fabric sort of take you to the past where woman are fanciful, classy, elegant and wonderful. I can't believe a Princess can bestow or is endowed with a malady as is her placing amongst a regal of sheer beauty. She evocates a pure picture of effortless grace in her beaming. I'm astounded again to see her for it felt she lived in the U.S. and distanced herself from official duties. I'm glad it's not the case. She should not be hidden even though she is a jewel. I hope she knows that. Cheers to the inducted winners for they are the speakers for their home. I enjoy reading about them when they are announced for their strives and perfections.

Year 2000:
the king, queen, Victoria and Lilian at the front row
Carl Philip and Madeleine at the second
http://bildarkiv.iblbildbyra.se/foto...7EC0139&sz=800
Year 2001
All five: The king, queen, Victoria, Lilian and Carl Philip all at one row
http://bildarkiv.iblbildbyra.se/foto...FCF80B7&sz=800
The same in 2004
http://bildarkiv.iblbildbyra.se/foto...18AC101&sz=800

So it could have been very well possible to put Daniel beside his wife.

Group photos with the Laureates and their wifes after the banquet.
