That's a good movie better than the first 1, so our Victoria is famous...

A little plea:

Firstly before I start: I want to thank those great people, who post here swedish, norwegian...(whatever) articles. I remember the times, when I was a complete newbie on the internet. And then it was great, that users on message boards have posted articles and pictures from (foreign) newspapers (which I never would have found on my own). So it´s a great gift for the community to get those articles.

And now my plea: But (there´s always a little "but", isn´t it ) please also post an little explanation to the article. It´s not expected to translate the whole article (I´ve done from time to time-german to english and swedish to english-and I know that it takes a lot of time to do). But please write 1 or 2 sentences about it. For example to the new article in Expressen today:
"Journalist Linda Nyberg is allowed to follow Victoria´s work. A big documentary about Victoria is planned and will probably be broadcasted this fall on swedish channel TV4...She was impressed of Victoria and thinks that she´s a warm and likeable person..."

I hope posters don´t feel now angry or disappointed/sad (again: thank you, that you care for a lively Sweden-forum through your posts :) ). I just want to make it a little bit easier for the many posters, who aren´t familiar with the languages in the articles.

Thanks for reading, Lena (as Moderator of the forum)

[QUOTE=Lena]I´ve found something interesting in BUNTE...Anne Hathaway (the princess diaries) said in an interview ( http://www2.onunterhaltung.t-online....3/2470436.html ->german):


Haben Sie eine bestimmte Prinzessin, die Sie mögen?
Im Film haben wir uns an Prinzessin Victoria von Schweden orientiert. Sie ist einfach zauberhaft, sieht gut aus und ist beliebt. Ansonsten kenne ich mich leider nicht so gut mit Königshäusern aus...

Do you have any certain princess you like?
In the movie we were/have oriented towards princess Victoria of Sweden. She´s simply enchanting, looks good and is popular. Besides I´m not really familiar with Royal houses...

Are we really surprised by this? :)

A little plea:

Very reasonable. I believe I said this before. But nobody listens to me anyway...

Backstreet boys are in Sweden and yesterday Nick and Howie appeared on the tv show "Idol"
This is what they said:
Nick Carter och Howie Dorough lovprisade både finalisterna och Sverige.
– Jag älskar Sverige, det är som ett andra hem för mig, säger Nick Carter till Expressen. Vi i bandet ska förmodligen skaffa ett hus här, vi har talat om det. Människor här är väldigt trevliga. Vi har också haft tur att träffa spännande personer, som kronprinsessan Victoria.

"We´ve been lucky to meet many nice swedes, like crownprincess Victoria" says Nick Carter to Expressen

Obviously Victoria attended an exhibition with her mother, the captions says it was in the Åmells gallery in Stockholm and that this gallery has shown 2 pictures of Rembrandt.
This wasn´t mentioned in the Royal calendar...so it seems it was private. Personally I wouldn´t mind, if Victoria would wear a skirt and boots to official duties as well!

A real Rembrandt for Daniel?! Well, as we know, Victoria is more than thankful that at least one guy dares to date her...so maybe she thinks this is worth a real Rembrandt If Danne would know the painter and would appreciate the present is an other question

An Audi instead of a Mercedes...never!

Thanks for the lovely pictures, Lena! Great to see that mother and daughter had a little time together like this, I hope they had fun and that they continue to meet for little outings like this every now and then. The painting they went to look at is "Minerva in her study" by Rembrandt - which has been the talk of the town ever since it came to Sweden in September. It hangs at the superb gallery Åmells Konsthandel, which is a good firm owned by Verner Åmell, with an excellent renommé. He managed to get the owner of this unique painting to agree to sell it in Europe (the current owner is from the US) - and in the small country of Sweden! A hughe thing in the cultural world. Anyway, the painting is now being showed at the gallery (throughout October, I think) - and then it will be sold. The starting price is $ 46 million...

46 million Dollar as starting price?! I wonder which people would pay that (well, it´s of course a lot more after the auction). It´s an strange idea, isn´t it. I mean you can only "scan" this picture with your eyes. And when you possess it, you can´t see more than ppl, who have seen it an exhibition, or who own a copy. I hope the painting won´t go to an private owner, who would keep it locked in his house. Then this sum would make even less sense.
The painting:

Lovely photos of Victoria and her mother. Black is a good color on her. Heck, any color is good on her. :)

Hangouts in Stockholm

I found pics of a few favorite hangout places of Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine.
Dennism you might to memorize these places and head to Sweden on the first flight out, that is if you are not in Sweden already. Who knows you might meet Victoria in one of these places and end up being the 'prince consort' or whatever her future husband's title.
Also, to any eligible girls in the forum, head out to these places to meet Carl Philip (a la Mary and Fred).

Thank you Josefine
Yes, nobel am approaching, Im hoping she is has already gotten herself a NEW grown up, elegant dress. I can just imagine Victoia, "Oh, its december and I dont have a dress!!! Hmmm why dont I just wear that incredible childish green lace dress I wore I Denmark and that made it look like I have no neck. Maybe I should also use the four button tiara, that would be original."

Im also fearing since ETW is no longer in the information department that she now has to much time on her hands, and decides to help Victoria find a dress for Nobel...I dont know who is going to help her find a dress IMO not ETW, not Daniel, not Madeleine and I dont want Victoria to dress like Silvia either....

Hoping she has contacted Lars Wahlin if she wants a swedish dress, and I dont think anyone would scream if she got herself an italian or american dress just ones.
