That's great news! A Nobel banquet wouldn't be the same without the splendorous Christina.

Article and video at Svensk Damtidning

Svensk Damtidning's reporter Ellen Myrgård Lindén met Ulrika Sandström, project manager of the Nobel banquet at Stockholm City Hall.
- The Nobel Banquet is our absolute biggest event with the most preparation and detailed planning. The floors are to be oiled and the chandeliers are cleaned. We will make the City Hall to its very best of course, to December 10, Ulrika Sandström, who shows us around in the mighty Blue Room (which is not blue!), tells us the glittering Golden Room, actually adorned with real gold on the walls.

Big uncertainties about the seating arrangements of the Nobel Prize
The Nobel Banquet will be soon. But who's going to sit and where? Everything is unclear.
Whoever has invited a big party knows what job it may be to do the seating arrangements.
Imagine arranging a party for 1 300 people. And to until the very last one doesn't know who will sit at the table of honor.
The Nobel Foundation has this problem right now. On December 9, they will present the Table of Honor at the Nobel Banquet, a party that will take place on December 10th. Yet they don't know who is leading our country. Who is the prime minister, which ministers are part of the government, and which should be placed absolutely finest, close to the royals?
On Monday, Speaker Andreas Norlén will propose Stefan Löfven as prime minister. On December 5, the Riksdag votes if Stefan Löfven becomes prime minister or not.
- I can't comment on the seating arrangements at the moment, but we are waiting, says Ebba Bourghardt, Press Officer at the Nobel Foundation.
So far, the government chaos has created a big controversy for the royal family. The king has to stay standby in the middle of the intense autumn schedule. Without him, there will be no new government.
As soon as the government's formation has been completed, the king must be ready to lead the Council of State at short notice.
Already now, the royal couple, the crown princess couple and the prince couple are in hard training. They need to read a lot to be able to discuss everything from chemistry to economics with the person they are placed next to. But right now they don't know if they will need to discuss physics in English, or maybe talk about politics in Swedish with a new prime minister.

Is it really that hard to make the seating arrangements by putting their position instead of the name? Or is the problem that they don't know yet whether the ministers are men of women?

I guess the problem is that they don't know what gender any of the future ministers are. If the prime minister's government proposal gets voted down in parliament this week I believe that the transitional government will remain in place for the nearest future, but if it gets approved there'll be some more time before the government is in place.

It sounds a bit like Svensk Damtidning is blowing the problem out of proportion, so that they have something to write.

I too am glad the Princess Cristina is well again and that she is attending despite her retirement. I'll miss seeing Madeleine though.

I believe Löfven will survive the vote of confidence as the Center Party and perhaps the Liberal Party have indicated that they might back the government.

Who knows, the Centre party have presented demands that have to be met for them to support a government lead by the Social Democrats. Demands that go against much what they stand for. I hope C do end up supporting S since there's not many alternatives left.

Detailed Information for media

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 1,560 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. 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 about 80 people. They are members of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Nobel Assembly of Karolinska Institutet and the Board of Directors of the Nobel Foundation, as well as previous Laureates.
In front of them will sit the 2018 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.
In the first row closest to the stage will be H.R.H. Prince Carl-Philip and H.R.H. Princess Sofia.

The Nobel Banquet in Stockholm
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 CET. 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. 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 1,340 guests.
The Banquet will conclude at about 22.45 CET.

The seating plan for the Table of Honour will be published at 10.00 on December 9.

On Friday morning the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences gave the media an opportunity to meet the 2018 Nobel Laureates in Physics and Chemistry as well as the Laureates of the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel at a press conference.

Countess Bettina Bernadotte, the President of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, was also invited to the press conference.
She asked a question from the Laureates "What is inspiring you and what is motivating you to work in science or is it just happening? This would be a question to all the Laureates."
