The fact they never married has little to do with being 2nd cousins and more to do with the fact they are the heirs to their respective countries' thrones. I think it would be rather difficult for Victoria to be Queen Regnant of Sweden and Queen Consort of Denmark. She'd hardly be in Denmark. And what about children? What country would the child/children inherit? It's too complicated and I don't think Victoria would ever abdicate.

I agree besides that, Victoria looked stunning, dress looked abit different from what she usually wears (stiff, typical royal dresses) loved the color on her. The Queens didnt look their best imo, but both in different shades of yellow which was nice, i liked the tiara's too.

Though said to be three different languages, they can also be seen as dialects of the same scandinavian language.

During work I speak danish, my co-worker speak swedish, and it works fine. :)

ahh always wondered, finally i got an explanation, thanks

Another clip from Dr.dk about the last day of the Swedish visit. As a bonus Queen Silvia gave a short interview to the journalist. Click here.

A series of lovely photos from Billed Bladet highlighting the State Visit to Denmark.

More photos from tonight's dinner courtesy of Sydsvenskan.se. Here's an article from Sydsvenskan paper. Unfortunately, I don't speak nor understand Swedish. Perhaps if one of our fellow Swedish members would like to translate, using your own words please, we would be very grateful.

She's the Regent in Sweden at the moment as the King, Queen and Victoria are away and Carl Philip is in the States.

This has been the best trip ever! CP Victoria has really dazzled us all! (I love that she has worn three different tiaras) And all the royal ladies have looked so stunning.

Thanks for sharing both the pics and the videos!

Thanks for all the wonderful pics! I can't quite make the color of Victoria's dress. Depending on the lighting, it looks green or grey to me. Does anyone know for sure?

you're welcome Jess, those tiaras are a MUST see in HQ, the decor, the dresses, the sashes, the tiaras, it's almost a crime to watch them with watermarks
I'll make a bigger pic pack with all events (heavy thing)

I thought Victoria's dress for the return dinner in Malmo was just stunning. She looked fantastic during this whole trip. And I can see where those who are saying Victoria and Frederik have some chemistry are coming from. If one of them was not the heir to the throne, they would make a good-looking couple.

This has really been the most glamorous state visit in years.
CP Victoria looked just radiant - this time I even liked the amethyst tiara on her - all her clothing & hairstyles were classy, especially the brown one for the last dinner.
Same goes for her mother Queen Silvia. Three new evening gowns: An almost QEII style heavily embroidered one for the gala, a more 'flirty' green one for the opera and a very 'stately' yellow one for the Malmö dinner.
If only Queen Marrethe would have chosen a different dress on the last night - of course the Russian sapphires are great, but the print's color combination really hurts my eyes!
All in all - what a splendid state visit, making a convincing statement about the advantage of still having monarchs instead of Presidents as Head Of State.

Love,love, loved Victoria's dress last nite in Malmø...although her other dresses were pretty, i sometimes feel their cut is very princess-dress-circa-1998, if you know what i mean. I relish seeing her in something different for once!!! But gorgeous all the way through this trip.
And Queen Magrethe's dress in malmø has some loud print, one can't help noticing her tall and elegant body...She really looks terrific( besides the teeth..i say we make a collection and send her to get them whitened)

Anyway, what fun!!!!

The best dressed royal visit from last years!!!

Ladies looks fantastic
Victoria looks just gorgous All three gowns and three tiaras... I thought that she would look terrible in this six buttons tiara but she looks quite god (maybe not so great as Lilian but good).

Pity that Mary wasn't present but maybe next time.

I know that we have all been following this visit extensively and have been focusing a great deal on the really incredible showing by the royal women. I would like to digress for a moment and perhaps someone can help me with a few things in regards to the men.

After looking at the video clips on the Danish Royal Watchers site, I was struck by how well Prince Richard looks. I thought there was something, perhaps in a Princess Benedikte thread about his poor health. Has he recovered or am I just making it up in my mind?

I am also interested in the attire of Prince Joachim. During the arrival, King CG, Prince Henrik, and CP Frederik were all in military uniform, but Prince Joachim was not. Instead he was wearing a suit. Is it because he is in a different branch of the military (non-navy) or because he is retired?

Thanks for any response!
