I didn't want to bring the issue of Madeleine's absence as to me it was a bit inappropriate to talk about that in such tragic circumstances. But since the matter has been talked, I'm goona say my opinion, which may sounds harsh. I think her absence is unjustifiable. As a princess of Sweden, who already carries out very few public engagements for the royal house, she ought to be there, for her country. I don't undertstand at all the way she chooses the events.

Aftonbladet's royal expert Jenny Alexandersson has a web podcast in cooperation with Svensk Damtidning. In addition to Jenny there is Aftonbladet's Maria Bjaring as a moderator and a couple of Svensk Damtidning's royal reporters, on Tuesday Liv Sander and Margareta Gotthardsson.
They spoke about the royal family's acting after the terror attack. A video of the podcast at Jenny Alexandersson's blog. She tells that they talked a lot about the Crown Princess's comments at the attack site on Saturday. Alexandersson says that Victoria was very spontaneous, her words came from her heart and she was very moved. She can really find words even in a day like this. And her answer with only one word "Together" is so strong
Liv Sander says that she would say that this is the crown princess's equivalent of the king Tsunami speech. She managed to put into words what many felt in that moment. This will be counted as one of her most important statements ever, it is something you will return to after 10, 20, 30 years. Margareta Gotthardsson says that Victoria has really been praised in both Sweden and even abroad, and at the social media can be seen that Victoria's words have meant a lot to the people. Maria Bjaring says that Victoria was very moved but also very composed, and that she was the regent while the king was abroad.
Alexandersson says that Victoria has been the regent many times before but never at such a terrible event. It can not have been easy, but she thinks that the Crown Princess acted like a queen. She shouldered the responsibility with courage and humility. She is not afraid to show emotions and at the same time she is confident and clear about who she is and what she should say.
Sander says that it isn't surprising at all that the king broke off his trip. He is the Head of State, it is his role at a time like this to show that the community and democracy are strong. He has been a unifying force previously, at Tsunami. Gotthardsson says that by immediately returning home to Sweden and giving a speech right after landing, the king showed that he takes this extremely seriously.
Alexandersson says that it becomes so clear what the royal family stands for when you listen to the king's words. Both he and Victoria talked about community. It has become the royal family's motto in what happened.
They speak also about the Memorial event on Monday, where the royal family except Madeleine attended. Gotthardsson says that their readers have reacted to that Madeleine wasn't there, but Madeleine honored the victims in her way. Alexandersson says that the statement in Facebook looks nice, it would have been great to see her there, but they don't know why she wasn't there and it would have meant something if she would have been there.
At the article are also questions Alexandersson has sent to the court about when a regent is needed and how the king makes his speeches.

A young artist was inspired by Victoria's visit at the attack site, she tells about her feelings after the attack at her Instagram:
..."In the process of dealing with all my emotions I sat down and made this homage image to our beautiful and wise princess."

The paint is beautiful, despite it doesn't look like Victoria, but it conveys what it is supposed to convey: sorrow and love.

In the pics I can't see Queen Silvia.

TT Nyhetsbyrån's reporter Niklas Svahn interviewed queen Silvia in May when the queen presented to the press SilviaBo houses for people with dementia.
Svahn asked queen Silvia also about the terror attack and writes at his blog:
During the interview I asked the Queen about what happened on her part after the terror attack. Just because the king was so hailed for his speech at the Palace, and Crown Princess Victoria was there at the flower sea with Prince Daniel and laid down flowers, I thought it would be interesting to hear how the Queen reacted.
It became a brief statement, but she said this:
"We were in Brazil when it happened, and we are so glad that the Crown Princess could be there then. We thought that was very important. But we were in Brazil, and there were three tickets, and we tried to get home right away."
The Queen made a comparison with how she felt after the 2004 tsunami disaster when she and the King visited one of the affected resorts after the devastation.
"So there were three tickets, it was Easter, and it was clear that the king left first and I could not go until the next day so I couldn't be there when the king kept his fine speech, which I think was very important and that there were many who really assimilated it", said Queen Silvia.
The king received praise from everyone when he said that there are more we who want good than those who want bad. The reaction to the terror attack was strong for Silvia.
"It was such a shock, it was such a terrible situation."
But she wanted to send some warm words to those who helped after the attack.
"It also shows how well the police have acted, and the medical care, everyone was there, everyone took care of each other. It was very nice".

After the concert Victoria and Daniel thanked the people who helped the victims after the attack.

You can watch the memorial service and the concert at this broadcast SVT sent today, for a month:

The memorial service was lovely with many wise words and beautiful music. The concert had good speeches and interviews and nice music. And it ended with the church bells ringing, which was very powerful and touching.
