Yes, I believe The King is going on a State Visit to Iceland this fall. I don't know the dates though, but they'll be public in due time.

Can someone translate this? please & thanks :flower:


Die BZ hatte es als erste gemeldet - keiner wollte es glauben! Gestern die Anfahrt royal: König Carl Gustaf von Schweden, 58, kam mit seinem blauen Ferrari 456 auf Kurzbesuch in die Hauptstadt. Statt in einer luxuriösen Suite residierten er und Königin Silvia, 60, ganz bescheiden: In einem Doppelzimmer im 4-Sterne-Residenzhotel Henriette (Neue Rossstraße in Mitte). Die Übernachtung kostet dort 175 Euro. Auch die Graffitis vor dem Hotel bereiteten dem Royal keine schlaflose Nacht. Schließlich wurde sein Flitzer stets von Bodyguards bewacht. Gleich vier Männer begleiteten ihn auf seinem Spree-Besuch. Im Volvo S80 T6 (272 PS, 250 km/h) waren sie ihrem König nach Berlin hinterher gejagt.

Der hatte es auch an der Spree ganz eilig: Carl Gustaf und Silvia kamen erst um 21.30 Uhr an, sausten dann gleich zum Abendessen bei Silvias Bruder Jörg Sommerlath, 63, nach Charlottenburg. Der war auch beim Frühstück am Dienstag auf dem Hotel-Zimmer dabei. Doch Punkt neun Uhr packte Carl Gustaf schon seine Sporttaschen in den Kofferraum, und Silvia nahm auf dem Beifahrersitz Platz. BZ-Reporter Alexander Stilcken verriet der König: "Ich bin gern in Berlin, habe hier viele Freunde." Über die Potsdamer Straße ging es dann auf den Stadtring und die Autobahn Richtung Leipzig. Ziel der Autoreise: St. Maxime bei St. Tropez. Übrigens: Hinterm Steuer ist Carl Gustaf ein Gentleman. Die Geschwindigkeitsbegrenzungen hielt er auf seinem Weg aus der Stadt peinlichst genau ein...

Oh, the article is not very special...Carl Gustaf just told the reporter that now all his three children are engaged :P

Just kidding, here is the (fast done) translation.


The BZ has reported it firstly-nobody wanted it to believe. Yesterday the "arrival Royal": king Carl Gustaf of Sweden, 58, came with his blue Ferrari 456 for a short visit to the capital. Instead of a luxury-suite he and Queen Silvia, 60, stayed totally modest: In a double room in the 4-star-residence-hotel Henriette (new "Ross-street" in Mitte->part of Berlin). The overnight stay costs there 175 Euro. Even the Graffitis in front of the hotel didn´t cause the Royal a sleepless night. Because his "runabout" was guarded of his bodyguards all the time. Even 4 men accompanied him to his visit at the Spree (Spree is a river in Berlin). In a Volvo S80 T6 (272 HP, 250 km/h) they followed the king to Berlin.

He (the king) was in hurry at the Spree as well: Carl Gustaf and Silvia arrived at 21:30, scooted/hurried to a dinner at (the place of) Silvia´s brother Jörg Sommerlath, 63, in Charlottenburg (another part of Berlin). This one was also present at the breakfast on Tuesday in the hotel room.
Dot nine Carl Gustaf already packed his sport-bags in the trunk and Silvia took place at/on the front passenger's seat . The king told BZ-reporter Alexander Stilcken: "I like it to be in Berlin, have a lot of friends here". Over the Potsdamer street it/he went to the Stadtring ( ring of streets around the city) and then on the motorway in right to Leipzig. Destination of the journey: St. Maxime in the near of St. Tropez. BTW: Behind the steering-wheel Carl Gustaf is a gentleman. He observed the speed limits on his way out of the town meticulously.

in the inner city as a non german he had to go to the next police station to pay his fine, cash!
With nice police pics and so on. I think he knew that. And as a German police man might not know him he would have some fun. Beeing temporalily arrested for speeding and that in Germany. That would be to much for the press in Sweden!

A serious question:
- is this the first time that CG drives outside of Sweden?

When I got my fine, I was informed of photo-radar. Surely CG didn't want that embarrassment.

Here´s an article about the King´s adventures out on the Autobahn. Another interesting tidbit of info. They like German meatballs with red wine. Yummy:


"Fartkungen" lätt på gasen på Autobahn :P

Kungen gasade på genom Tyskland i sin blå Ferrari.
Den tyska pressen upptäckte honom och försökte följa efter - men kungen körde så sakta att reportrarna tröttnade.
Det svenska kungahuset är mycket populärt i Tyskland. De tyska reportrarna som läst om kungens framfart på de svenska vägarna ville kolla om han skulle slå nytt hastighetsrekord på Autobahn.
Det gjorde han inte. Kungen körde försiktigt.
- Han hölls sig strikt efter fartbegränsningen, säger tidningen BZ:s reporter Alexander Stilcken.
Kungen och Silvia passar på att bil- semestra i Europa på väg till sitt hus i Saint Tropez på Franska rivieran.

Fyra säkerhetsvakter
Kungaparet har fyra säkerhetsvakter med sig på resan. De får nöja sig med att köra Volvo S80 T6 med 272 hästkrafter och en toppfart på - i dessa sammanhang - beskedliga 250 kilometer i timmen.
I måndags kväll kom kungen och Silvia till Berlin. När de är i stan på officiella besök bor de alltid på Adlon. Men den här gången nöjde de sig med ett rum för 1 750 kronor per natt på hotell Henriette i Östberlin. Det relativt nya fyrstjärniga hotellet ligger på sidogatan Neue Rosstrasse i stadsdelen Mitte.

Tyska köttbullar
Efter att kungaparet checkat in vid 22-tiden blev de hämtade av Silvias bror, diplomaten Jörg Sommerlath, 63.
Sällskapet fortsatte kvällen på krogen "Zur Letzten Instanz". Silvia och kungen åt en stadig middag med tyska köttbullar, öl och rödvin. Jörg nöjde sig med kålrullader.
Följande morgon blev Ferrarin framkörd prick klockan nio. Silvia och kungen bar själva ner sina väskor och fortsatte resan söderut - i lagenliga 120 km/h


King

Queen

No, The King has driven abroad before - on the continent on their holidays.

Well as non German they would stop him at once to make him pay at once. Back in Sweden he might not pay!

I thought photo-radar is more efficient.

Strange ... the German police-man only comes out into the open (to catch speeders) when he knows a gentleman - that CG is - will stop to receive his fine.

It depends wether its a permanent radar station. Then the police is not present. When its a mobile one they are. And fine you at once usually!

Has anyone heard about the advertisement in German TV (it was about 1993) in which Kungaparet presented their country as the ideal place for tourists? Is there any link to that video? Thanks for any replies :)

There will be a new fragrance on the market...with the signature of the king and the queen on the flacon...it´s called "Solliden eau de toilette" and there will be a male and a female version and parts of the revenues will go to the king and the queen (and to the childhood foundation-the queen´s charity project).
Of course there are some people, who criticise this development...but on the other hand they criticise as well, that the RF needs so much tax-money

Who knows maybe it´s a success and they will produce a Victoria-fragrance as well...then Dennis probably would buy a few cartons and would bathe daily in it :P

The king & queen

The flacon

Kungaparets parfym- affär får hård kritik


Kungen och drottningen ger sig in i parfymbranschen.
Kungaparet har lånat ut sina namn till en parfymtillverkare - snart säljs den kungliga doften i hela världen.
- Det här är klart på gränsen, säger statsvetaren Peter Esaiasson.
Den svenskgrundade internationella kosmetikajätten Oriflame lanserar i september sin nya parfym över hela Europa. På etiketten: Kung Carl Gustafs och drottning Silvias namnteckningar.
- Det svenska kungaparet har gått med på att vi ska distribuera deras doft över världen, säger Nigel Mould, marknadsföringschef på Oriflames huvudkontor i Bryssel.

Okänd summa
En del av intäkterna för varje såld flaska kommer att gå till drottningens barnfond World Childhood Foundation som bland annat arbetar med att hjälpa gatubarn. Hur mycket vill Nigel Mould inte uppge.
- Det här verkar som ett steg på vägen mot det som Gudrun Schyman föreslagit, att privatisera kungahuset. Det låter som om det är på gränsen för vad som är tillåtet, säger statsvetaren Peter Esaiasson.
Hovets informationschef Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg bekräftar att ett avtal skrivits men ser inga problem med att ett privat företag tjänar pengar på kungens och drottningens namn.

Tjäna pengar
- Visst kommer de att tjäna pengar på det, men en stor del av vinsten går till World Childhood Foundation. Vi har gjort bedömningen att det kommer att generera medel som kommer barnen tillgodo, säger Tarras- Wahlberg.
Den nya parfymen kommer att heta "Solliden eau de toilette" och ska finnas i en manlig och en kvinnlig version. Den baseras på en redan befintlig parfym med samma namn som sedan fyra år går att köpa i souvenirbutiken på Solidens slott. Den nya parfymen kommer att kunna köpas i tusentals butiker i 55 länder.

Namnteckningar
Oriflame har vidareutvecklat doften, som "baseras på det öländska landskapet" och ska ge den en ny flaska. Kungaparets namnteckningar kommer att ingå i logotypen.
- Kungaparet har inte stått och blandat doften själva, men de har godkänt den, säger Tarras-Wahlberg.

Great photos indeed. Silvia does indeed not look 60. Yes, bathe daily. Lena, you know me so well. Yes, I hope they do not criticize.
