Today the Royal Court announced the dates for the King and Queens visit to Thailand. They will visit between the 17-19 February, and the purpose of the visit is to thank the Thai King Bhumibol and the Thai nations for their sacrificing help to Swedish citizens during and after the tsunami.

A few more pictures of the King and Queen attending a service to commemorate the Holocaust in the Large Synagogue in Stockholm, Thursday 27 January 2005. Pictures from Brunopress:

In connection with the opening of the Jokkmokk Winter Maket, the Queen received a necklace called The Swedish Link. The necklace consists of the typical stones of the 25 Swedish provinces - from noth to south, shaped during billions of years, and part of what has made Sweden into what it is today.

The necklace is 100% genuine Swedish handicraft, designed and made in Sweden. If you go here, http://www.sverigelanken.se/Ramar/frameset%20index.htm, you can click on the different stones of the necklace and read about them (though in Swedish).

What a beautiful necklace. That´s cool that they made it for her. By the way, notice how bright the Queen´s pants are. I guess that was on purpose. In case, she gets lost. It will be easier to find her.

From HELLO!

King Carl Gustaf takes a wintry break in Verbier!

As a skiing veteran, Sweden's King Carl Gustaf relishes a challenge when he heads for the slopes. That's probably why the 58-year-old opted for the Swiss resort of Verbier when taking time out from royal duties in Stockholm.

The Scandinavian royal jetted into the Alpine destination this week to spend a few days on the piste. Having twice taken part in the Vasa Ski Race, Carl Gustaf knows a thing or two about tackling a tricky run. And Verbier is considered one of the best resorts for advanced-level skiers.

With over 400 kilometres of pistes it offers something for everyone, but it's difficult black runs are second to none. There's top-class tuition available for practiced skiers, while the nearby Mont Fort glacier means true afionados can take to the slopes all year round.

Small wonder then that the Duke and Duchess of York, along with their daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, are regular visitors. Footie ace David Beckham likewise opted for Verbier when he treated wife Victoria to a birthday break last April.

I wonder if they ran into the CP Frederik and CPss Mary, or did the King and Queen arrive later.

BILD has a sad story about queen Silvia´s brother Jörg (63). He suffers from cancer of the oesophagus. He has gotten a chemo therapy firstly and was operated yesterday in Munich. The oesophagus was removed completely and the stomach was moved upwards, so that he can still eat and drink.
According to BILD, Silvia has offered her brother to come to Stockholm and to be treated of the best swedish doctors, but he has refused, because in Stockholm he would be alone (Jörg lives with his 2 children and his wife in Berlin)
Silvia is all time informed about the condition of her brother. The court didn´t reveal, if Silvia will go to Germany to visit her brother:

Ärzte entfernten Silvias Bruder die Speiseröhre Krebs-OP!


Königin Silvia bangt um ihren deutschen Bruder

In München ist gestern heimlich der Bruder von Königin Silvia (61) operiert worden.Er hat Speiseröhrenkrebs und schon eine Chemotherapie hinter sich.
„Die Diagnose hatte er sehr gefaßt aufgenommen“, sagt seine Cousine Siegrid (77), die mit ihm in Berlin lebt. „Auch vor der OP zeigte er keine Angst, war optimistisch und gut gelaunt wie immer.“
Vor drei Monaten war Jörg Sommerlath (63) zum Arzt gegangen, weil er Probleme beim Schlucken hatte. Diagnose: Krebs, aber keine Metastasen.
Silvia bot sofort an, ihn von Schwedens besten Ärzten behandeln zu lassen. Die Cousine: „Er lehnte ab. In Stockholm wäre er ganz allein. Die Königin hat doch keine Zeit. Hier ist seine Familie, seine beiden Kinder.“
Sommerlath meldete sich bei der brasilianischen Botschaft in Berlin krank. Dort arbeitet der Ingenieur in der Handelsabteilung. Sein Vater vertrat bereits Exportfirmen in Brasilien, die Familie (inklusive Silvia) lebte lange in São Paulo.
„Gestern ist er nun operiert worden“, bestätigte sein Bruder Ralf de Tiledo Sommerlath (75) gegenüber BILD. „Wir werden aber erst nach einiger Zeit wissen, ob er geheilt ist.“
Die Speiseröhre wird bei diesen Krebspatienten komplett entfernt, der Magen hochgezogen. Stücke aus Dünn- oder Dickdarm ersetzen fehlende Teile. Ein schwerer Eingriff, bei dem die Chirurgen von Hals und Bauch aus arbeiten.
„Jörg läßt sich nicht unterkriegen“, sagt sein Bruder (es sind insgesamt vier Geschwister). Silvia wird ständig über seinen Zustand informiert. Ob sie ihn heimlich am Krankenbett besucht? Der Hof in Stockholm schweigt.

Well I would say no. Espacially as the hospital in Munich where he is has a world leading research center for cancer diagnostics and treatment. I would say they are more or less equally in case you get ill.

But the sentence "beeing operated secretley.." is really trash. I also do not make a press announcement when I go to hospital. And he is not that famous.

Well when you are sent to Munich for cancer treatment its a sign that the medics think the cancer already has developed to a very dangerous state. The Charite in Berlin is also very good for cancer treatment, so beeing sent to Munich is not a good sign.
