The article is about the way Queen Silvia dresses. The reporter thinks she dresses to "young" and that she should find some clothes suitable for her age.
And it also says that its against the protocol(?) to eat when wearing just a bathingsuit...
I couldn't read the article for myself as I don't read Swedish. And I've not ever heard of it being against protocol to eat while wearing "just" a bathing suit. (Better than eating naked, though, right?! :P )

And while I think Queen Silvia dresses appropriately 99.9% of the time, I think I have to go with the writer's opinion on this one about the Queen dressing a bit inappropriate for her age, espescially in the picture Yennie posted of her in the turqoise/blue top and white pants. Great outfit and wonderfully accessorized purse, but a Queen celebrating her 60th birthday in several months should be baring her mid-driff, I think. I mean, I think the Queen has a great body and she has taken very good care of herself, but this top was perhaps better left for Victoria or Madelline or Emma.

It is, atleat according to the article. And I think its right, in the "etiquettebook" (I have no idea what its called in english, but its a wild guess :P) its not appropiate to eat when wearing only a bathingsuit.
But I must agree with you, its better than nothing *lol*

I might be mistaken, but I believe President George Bush made a state visit to Sweden in summer 2001. Does anybody have pictures from this event or know where I can find some?

I am new to this site but have been interested in Scandinavian royalty for many years. I was visiting Norway in 1991 when Haakon turned 18. It was sure a big deal. Victoria, Madeleine, and Carl are not in the magazines I took home. The king and queen were there of course.

In 1988 the royal couple went to the states. They visited the president and cities like New York, Washington and Los Angeles. They also visit Disneyland (I remember a funny picture of them with Mickey and Minnie Mouse :P )
Were that just a visit and not a state visit? I think it had something to do with New Sweden celebrating a jublilee..??
Does anyone know for sure?

Polfoto 08-09-2003 Dronning Silvia indvier vokse-afdeling på Dronning Silvias børnesygehus / Sverige. Afdelingen er beregnet til børn hvis vækst er gået i stå.

When does the King go hunting?

I thought it was the end of September the beginning of October. Does he go to the same area each time? and any pictures from previous expedition parties?

I know he goes hunting at Halle Hunneberg every year.. and sometimes at Tullgarn.
Swedish television filmed a hunt in 1995 and it was showed in the traditional "new years programme"

interesting article...

Tullgarn
I thought that was a palace?

.... I might be lucky to 10% of the meaning when picking my way through Swedish text.

Appreciate it when some-one goes the 'extra mile' to translate a clause that reveals the true side of a person of interest.

Thank you, Yennie.

Say Josefine,

I hear this couple has a beautiful black lab dog who doesn't give a hoot about getting into the middle of photo shoots. Where in this forum can I find such pictures?

Are there any old interviews? Like from 1976, 1980 and stuff? Maybe there are some on the internet and I just haven´t found them so far...?
