Im looking on the Swedish Embassy of Spain's website for Victoria's visit there on Nov. 14, and I can't seem to find a reference to her name. Am I blind ?

Here's the link:
embajadasuecia.es/actualidades.html

and this is what's printed there:

NOTA DE PRENSA

El grupo español Inditex y la cadena sueca Hennes & Mauritz,galardonados con el Premio Reina Cristina de Suecia


Convocado por la Cámara de Comercio Hispano-Sueca, este galardón premia a una empresa española y a otra sueca por el fomento de las relaciones comerciales y culturales entre ambos países

Madrid, 5 de noviembre de 2003.- La firma española Inditex y la sueca Hennes & Mauritz AB han sido galardonadas con el Premio Reina Cristina de Suecia que, en su primera edición, ha concedido la Cámara de Comercio Hispano-Sueca, como reconocimiento anual a dos empresas, entidades o personas que hayan destacado por el fomento de las relaciones comerciales y culturales entre España y Suecia.

La entrega de este premio tendrá lugar el próximo día 14 de noviembre en la Embajada de Suecia.

Por parte de Hennes & Mauritz, su presidente, Stefan Persson, será el encargado de recoger el premio. La empresa española Inditex estará representada por José María Castellano, vicepresidente y consejero delegado, acompañado por Flora Pérez, esposa de Amancio Ortega, presidente de Inditex.

El jurado de esta primera edición ha sido presidido por el embajador de Suecia en España, Lars Grundberg y el presidente de la Cámara, Ingemar Naeve, que ha actuado como secretario.

Con el nombre de Reina Cristina de Suecia se rememora la semblanza de este personaje histórico del siglo XVII que, durante su reinado, estableció una estrecha relación con España y la entonces corte de Felipe IV. Su admiración por la cultura mediterránea quedó representada en una amplia colección de arte, cuyas obras más importantes se exhiben en el Museo del Prado.

La Cámara de Comercio Hispano-Sueca se creó hace 28 años y en la actualidad tiene más de doscientos cincuenta asociados de ambos países.

El Grupo Inditex cuenta con siete cadenas de moda y acaba de abrir una nueva línea de negocio dedicada a la casa. La primera tienda de la cadena Zara en Suecia se abrió el pasado 5 de septiembre en la calle Hamngatan, una de las principales arterias comerciales del área central de Estocolmo. Inditex ya estaba presente en el mercado sueco desde 1994 con dos tiendas de la cadena Massimo Dutti.

Este grupo cuenta con más de 1.800 establecimientos en 48 países de Europa, América, Oriente Medio y Asia. En el ejercicio 2002, su cifra de negocio se elevó hasta 3.974 millones de euros y su beneficio neto se situó en 438 millones de euros. Al cierre del primer semestre de 2003, Inditex empleaba a 35.348 personas; 7.023 más que un año antes.

Hennes & Mauritz AB cuenta con 26 establecimientos en ocho ciudades españolas, el último recién inaugurado en Vitoria. Antes de que finalice el año tiene previsto abrir su sexta tienda en Madrid. Al cierre del pasado ejercicio, la facturación de este Grupo alcanzó los 53.332 millones de coronas suecas (5.891 millones de euros), con un beneficio de 8.629 millones de coronas suecas (950 millones de euros).

En la actualidad, vende ropa y cosmética en 901 tiendas repartidas por 18 países, en los que emplea 39.000 trabajadores. El grupo que fundara Erling Persson en 1947, en Västerås, Suecia, tiene previsto cerrar el presente año con 110 nuevas tiendas en todo el mundo.
Rough Translation of foregoing:

Maybe a big secret for the local press ?

Or to give Felipe a little private time with Victoria, and explain

Nice photos. Little worried about the pink/purple above the eyes. I hope it's the lighting.

I would say that´s make-up. What else should it be, the rest of a love bite, caused through a certain Dennis on Saturday :P ? Explanation: At school I had a classmate, who sometimes had haematomas on her lids. And once the teacher asked her, why she had those blue-red-green spots (of course changing with days) on the skin of her lids. And then she admitted, that her friend always kissed her there, and that caused love bites/hickeys there

What is the plural of haematoma (american english hematoma)??? And a haematoma is caused through a lesion of arteries, the Haemoglobin (red blood pigment) is broken down (to Bilirubin, Biliverdin...) and you can see this healing process shining in different colours through your skin. And a love bite is just a haematoma, through the sucking you are hurting little arteries under the skin...
Poor Royals...if their boyfriends/girlfriends would make a hickey, everybody would know, that they have a girlfriend/boyfriend :P

Hema or Hemo= Greek for Blood. I should have recognized it. Well, it's true about the hickey thing. However, surely there is some makeup that would get rid of it.

I think Lena's first explanation is correct, the colour on lovely Vic's eyelids is makeup. Why else would it match so nicely with her cheek colour, not to mention her top and bag? :flower:

That said, I think the hickey explanation is far more interesting.
