The Nobel Prize 2015

It's early but the 2015 Nobel events are set for December 10. The Prize winners are:

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2015
Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald "for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass"

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2015
Tomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich and Aziz Sancar "for mechanistic studies of DNA repair"

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015
William C. Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura "for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites", and the other half to Youyou Tu "for her discoveries concerning a novel therapy against Malaria".

The Nobel Prize in Literature 2015
Svetlana Alexievich "for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time"

The Nobel Peace Prize 2015
National Dialogue Quartet "for its decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the Jasmine Revolution of 2011"

The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2015
Angus Deaton "for his analysis of consumption, poverty, and welfare"

At the Nobels the SRF escorts a person into dinner. Is it a winner or a dinner guest? Also they sit apart as if each person acts as a host/hostess to the group of people they are sitting with. Is that the case?

The gowns and tiaras will be interesting.

Do you think that Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia, Princess Madeleine and Christopher O'Neill will be seated together with King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel? Or will they be seated seperate like the last year?

The Nobel Peace Prize is delivered in Oslo.

Last year Expressen wrote that the court and the king, in consultation with the Nobel Foundation had thought that eight members of the royal family at the stage would be too much.
Margareta Thorgren said then: Yes, it would simply be too many and that is why this decision has been made. Now it will be the head of state, the queen, the heir to the throne and the prince who represent the royal family and the family at the ceremony. Everyone feels that it is important that the prize winners are in the focus.

It would be really odd if they now would put eight people to the stage again - regarding what Thorgren said last year, it would look that the prize winners aren't so important anymore.

So I hope that the seating order will be similar than last year.

At the process to the banquet queen Silvia is always escorted by the Chairman of the Nobel Foundation.

I quite agree, the seating order worked well and makes sense. Also it would look strange if the seating order were changed every year.

The seating order worked, but it would be nice to see the Prince Couple seated on stage though.

The only thing i would change at last years seating Order is to place the Crown Princess Couple in a row with the King and Queen and not behind them.

I've seen older pictures of the Nobels where Lilian sat in the same row as the king and queen. Perhaps because the immediate SRF was small at the time (for the adults). Last year's seating order was fine for keeping the focus on the winners. The winners should be the main focus by the press, but you know there will be sidebar stories, like the battle of the baby bumps between Victoria and Sofia, or a made up feud over who wears which tiara from the Bernadotte vault. The biggest dishing will be on the gowns.
I loved Victoria's tomato red ball gown from 2014:

Silvia's gown was my next favorite(I don't recall the year) She wore the Luechtenburg. Nice contrast:

Are they still planning to doing the Nobels, given the threat assessment? Would Victoria be there?

yeah, but then Madeleine & Chris would have to be on stage too, otherwise it wouldn't be fair. And then you get into it being crowded. It's easier if its just the four of them. Maybe, if Victoria & Daniel don't attend one year, then you can have the others on stage. but that's a conversation for if it ever happens.

Maybe he had something with Bernadotte & Kylberg designing, or Cyan Racing Team...

The Nobel Foundation has published detailed information for the media:
About the Nobel Prize Award ceremony:
The seats closest to the stage are reserved primarily for the Laureates’ families, representatives of the prize-awarding institutions, members of the Swedish government and Riksdag (Parliament) and the diplomatic corps. Seated on the stage will be nearly 100 people. They are members of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Nobel Assembly of Karolinska Institutet and the Swedish Academy, members of the Board of Directors of the Nobel Foundation and previous Laureates.

In front of them will sit the 2015 Laureates and members of Sweden’s Royal Family: H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf, H.M. Queen Silvia, H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria and H.R.H. Prince Daniel.
H.R.H. Prince Carl Philip and H.R.H. Princess Sofia as well as H.R.H. Princess Madeleine and Mr Christopher O’Neill will sit in the first row closest to the stage.
http://www.nobelprize.org/events/cal...-week-2015.pdf

From the seating plan we can see that it is the same than last year, Victoria and Daniel sit behind the king and queen.

@Lady Finn - Who is escorting whom to the dinner? Have they set up the separate seating arrangements for the dinner yet?

The Nobel Foundation has on previous years published the seating plan of the Board of Honor at the banquet on 9th December. Whom the members of the royal family are escorting to the banquet hasn't been published before the banquet.

I assume Princess Christina and Tord Magnuson to attend the Nobel Prize Concert tomorrow in the Concert Hall. No one from the Royal Family is set to attend the event according to the calendar, and someone form the Royal Family or Princess Christina usually attend the concert.

Here is SVT's special website of the Nobel Week.
Nobel _ SVT.se

SVT2 shows the Nobel concert in two parts on Tuesday and Wednesday. Last year the concert was put some weeks later to be seen at the website of the Nobel Foundation.

So excited for this week this year and not just for the usual reasons either. Never in a Million Years did I think something from my Hometown would be in the limelight at the Nobels, but it is and WE ARE!!! I can't even begin to imagine the excitement that's building at the Neutrino Observatory in Sudbury. And we know someone who works there too. Well, more than know, I consider him my Honourary Brother, as the Son of good Family Friends, Sandy was always around helping out when he could...Anyway...

What a week so far. We overshot the total goal for our Annual Lions Christmas Telethon to raise money for Toys for Needy Kids in the area on Saturday. The goal was $270 Thousand and the tally when 11pm came was over $290 Thousand!! Now the excitement starts building for the Nobels.

A very Special December so far in Northeastern Ontario. :) :) :)

You were right, princess Christina and Tord Magnuson are at the concert. I hope that we get some photos.
