I love his work, but he is flawed and in his case it looks a lot like self indulgence and pettiness IMO. If it minimizes the irritation, just know he would dis just about any recognition ceremony IMO. Phooey on him!

A shame that Bob won't be able to make it, but if he has previous commitments, then I understand.

Even though they are not the main guests, it will be very unusual to not see them there. Has Christina missed Nobel at all since she started to attend ?

Very sad but fully understandably. I know people who are also suffering from chronic blood cancer and get treatments so i've seen that even though you can live with it, the treatments are tough for the body and can make you ill for longer periods.

Then it is likely 2 seats available so it will be interesting to see if any of the kings other sisters or other royals will take them.

Absolutely agree. Cohens poetry and lyrics are amazing and cover every aspect of the human condition. And surprisingly, he maintained an admirable sense of humility which endeared him to his fans.

The Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in Stockholm
The Nobel Day, December 10, will begin with the traditional Nobel Prize Award Ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall. There will be presentation speeches about the year’s prizes before an audience of about 1,570 guests, who will then watch the Laureates as they receive their medals and diplomas one by one from the hand of H.M. the King of Sweden. Mr. Bob Dylan will not have a representative present on stage.
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 2016 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.

The Nobel Banquet
After the ceremony at the Concert Hall, it will be time for the evening’s Nobel Banquet at the Stockholm City Hall. The banquet programme will follow tradition and begin with the entry procession of the Royal Family and other guests of honour down the grand stairway and into the Blue Hall at 19.00. Prior to this, the guests of honour will have been presented to the Royal Family in the Prince’s Gallery of the City Hall. Behind the Master of Ceremonies will be two female attendants followed by H.M. the King with his dinner companion and H.M. the Queen with Professor Carl-Henrik Heldin, Chairman of the Board of the Nobel Foundation and the host of the evening’s banquet. During the entry procession, and later during the exit procession, Mattias Wager will play the City Hall’s organ. We will also hear fanfares by two trumpeters, father and son Olle and Mikael Hermansen. In 1901 the first Nobel Banquet, held in the Hall of Mirrors of the Grand Hôtel, had 113 guests. Today the Nobel Banquet is served to about 1,350 guests.

The programs of the Prize Ceremony and the Banquet, the seating plan and a lot more information:
The 2016 Nobel Week in Stockholm

The Table of Honor of the Banquet will be published tomorrow.

The Table of Honour at the Nobel Banquet
http://s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com...016_D_9dec.pdf

On previous years the royal family has gone from the banquet to the Prince's Gallery, where they have given audience to the Nobel Laureates. But this year they will go to Golden Hall, where all the guests are mingling and dancing. Margareta Thorgren said that this way the royal family can socialize with the Laureates but also with the other guests. Maybe we will see some royals dancing too ?
The Royal Family receives the Laureates for an audience at the King's Dinner for the Nobel Laureates on December 11.

Victoria is stunnning

Great to see Sofia in new tiara. Bit surprised it is the small cut steel. It's a very underwhelming tiara. The women usually wear the big bling tonight. Even her wedding tiara is more impressive bling wise and would have looked great with her dress. Shame the small cut steel didn't wait till tomorrow. But still great Sofia got to wear something else.
