I don't understand why anyone would print such things. Though I haven't been a "royal watcher" long, IMO the Queen seems like a very nice and warm person (she really comes across that way in the photos :) ). And as for plastic sugeries, who care if she has or hasn't.

The pressrelease is rude and very unroyal if you ask me, ETWs work I suppose?
The article about Silvia was the answer on Expressen´s big Sunday-article on the king: http://www.expressen.se/index.jsp?a=188514

So it would be now really Expressen´s turn to write about Victoria´s secret life
Yes, such an article about Lilian would be interesting. We don´t read much about her, but I guess she´s still "full of life" and it would be good to read more about her.

The problem which I have with this new counterstatement is, that it doesn´t include any kind of rectifying information. Usually in a press release things are corrected or announced to the press/people!

No offence Lena, but the palace press release sounds like something you would have said about Daniel Nyhlen

I find it unroyal behaviour to put out such a snappish remark, either you say nothing, or you publish a polite answer with relevant information. The palace should not lower them selves to such low level.

Did you see pictures by the regatta from the queen? Many thanks for your help.
When I checked at Colourpress, there were pictures of both The King and Queen... You could see then arrive by car, and then inside a building for a reception or something. And then there were of course pics of just The King in his sailing jacket.

So I´m snappish? Well, I´m Can live with that But I want to add that I´ve also tried to "match" him with Victoria (his future mother-in-law and the court´s spokeswomen would faint ) in that past and that I feel now pity with him. Probably he´s sitting in his little shabby apartment and is crying (knowing that his sources were real)...or he´s planning revenge and is writing with glowing eyes "The Queen´s secret life II" or "ETW´s secret life...things you´ve never imagined"

This evening TV8 (swedish TV) will broadcast at 22:10 an interview with Queen Silvia.

http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/nyhete...549099,00.html

The Queen tells among other things, that she sometimes feels lonely...that she had then, when the succession was changed, the fear that Victoria couldn´t have time to raise an own family before becoming Queen. She tells that Victoria has the support of her siblings, who don´t want to move abroad.
And she says that she´s still suprised how nice, warm and well-balanced the Swedes are.

Gossip and surgery – the life of ‘lonely’ Queen Silvia

Sweden’s royals are about as open as royals get, but the press is always hungry for secret information. This week it was Silvia’s turn in the spotlight, and while she spoke of her work for children’s charities, the press was painting a picture of a conservative queen, known to her friends as the ‘Iron Lady’,

In an interview shown on cable channel TV8 on Tuesday, Silvia said that being queen can lead to ‘feelings of loneliness,” and complained that she hardly ever got any time off, “even though I try to keep Mondays free.”

Silvia was doing the interview to promote her charity, the World Childhood Foundation, and said that she was proud of the role she had played to put the issue of child sex abuse on to the agenda, reported DN.

The queen, who has German-Brazilian origins, also said she was surprised by some of the stories about the royal family that had come up in the German tabloids. She said that they had taken action against the papers “to defend our children.”

Still, gossip about the royals is good business, in Sweden as well as in Germany. And according to a profile by Aftonbladet this week, even the queen herself is an avid reader of the Swedish gossip magazines.

“One of the high-points of the week is when Svenska Damtidning comes through the letterbox,” reported Aftonbladet. According to the paper, Silvia then rifles through the magazine, reading every line about herself, her family and her friends.

“Occasionally,” said the paper, “she rings Princess Madeleine and asks whether the things that are written in the papers are true.”

Aftonbladet painted a picture of a queen who is very aware of her position. She “refers to herself as ‘the queen’, and expects others to do likewise”, the paper revealed, adding that in certain noble families Silvia is unkindly referred to as ‘the Iron Lady’ and ‘the German’, referring to the queen’s Teutonic origins.

Such epithets point to a pretty conservative mindset, something that Aftonbladet confirms. Silvia is reportedly opposed to divorce and “worships the nuclear family” – an attitude that led to her boycotting the weddings of two of the king’s friends when they married much younger women.

Yet her disapproval of the young women in her husband’s social circle doesn’t mean that the queen has given up trying to look younger herself. Aftonbladet says that Silvia has had plastic surgery round her eyes and mouth, and speculates that she uses botox, “a kind of nerve poison that smoothens out wrinkles on the forehead.” According to the paper, the queen visits her plastic surgeon in Brazil during her annual visits to her homeland.

and here I thought the saying, "no one is indispensible" is true.

wonder what the difference would have been, compared to if she hadn't undertaken plastic surgery ?

Article from Aftonbladet today:

The article reports that The King's first hunt of the season (2 days long) was very successful. He managed to shoot three elks on the first day, the second day none – but the result is very good. Prince Carl Philip was not with The King this time, like he was last year, when he managed to shoot five elks and The King only two. The article also notes that The King has hunting rights on 85 000 hectares of State Land, 65 000 of the hectares are in Bergslagen (where The King now went to hunt), where the Royal elk hunt started 106 years ago.

http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/04...ugen-2_368.jpg



Skogens konung sköt tre älgar
Full pott första dagen

Kung Carl Gustaf kan nu stoltsera med tre granruskor i hatten. Han sköt tre älgar vid årets kungajakt i Bergslagen. Jaktlagen fällde under två dagars jakt 23 älgar i skogarna runt Färna. Kungen fick full utdelning första dagen, men blev lottlös den andra. Av rapporten framgår inte om kungens älgar var kronor eller klövar, förlåt tjurar eller kor.

Inleddes för 106 år sedan
Prins Carl Philip var inte med i år. I fjol sköt prinsen fem älgar mot pappas två. Då fälldes 56 älgar på två dagar, en ovanligt hög notering. Kungen disponerar jakträtten på 85 000 hektar av statens marker, därav 65 000 hektar i Bergslagen där den kungliga älgjakten inleddes för 106 år sedan.

After hunting them down? Eat them! I´m not too fond of it myself, but nothing strange about an elk steak with potatoes, brown sauce and jelly from "rönnbär"= rowanberry (according to my dictionary).

Folke no doubt from his great uncle Folke Bernadotte who was the son of Oscar II´s second son, Oscar who married without permission and thus lost his rights of succession. Hubertus is a little harder to pinpoint but the king´s mother was from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Leopold III of Belgium was from the same house and he had married Astrid of Sweden who was a great aunt of the King. Just an idea.

Article about Queen Silvia and her plastic surgeries in Expressen. Expressen claims that the reliable business newspaper dagens industri has revealed the places, where Queen Silvia underwent plastic surgeries. In 1991 she has visited the world famous surgeon Ivo Pitanguy in Brazil, who should have removed some tissue (fat) under her chin.
Nowadays she goes to the brazilian clinic Ligia Kogos and there she gets Botox-injections...
I think now the Royal court (the spokeswomen) have set a snare for themselves...They have commented every little article in Sweden´s tabloids in the past few weeks. But I guess they now won´t comment this article (because the Queen´s plastic surgeries are a delicate topic...it seems). So ppl will automatically draw the conclusion that it is true.

”Här gör Silvia sina plastikoperationer"
Här är de två kliniker som drottning Silvia upprepade gånger besökt för att genomgå plastikoperationer i Brasilien.
Drottning Silvia ska ha opererat hakan – samt besökt en klinik som specialiserat sig på injiceringar av botox, ett rynkutslätande nervgift, uppger i dag Dagens Industri.

Flera gånger har det spekulerats i om drottning Silvia har genomgått plastikoperationer.
Bland annat har det uppgetts att drottningen tagit bort rynkor i ansiktet samt att hon opererat bort en födelsefläck från hakan.
Hovet har konsekvent vägrat ge några kommentarer.

Stjärnkirurg opererade
Nu skriver Dagens Industri Weekend att drottning Silvia besökt Brasiliens fixstjärna inom plastikkirurgi, Ivo Pitanguy, för ”att fullända sin skönhet” vid ett besök i Brasilien 1991.
Då ska överflödig vävnad under hakan tagits bort.

Injektioner med botox
Dagens Industri citerar även nyhetsmagasinet Veja som uppger att drottning Silvia den senaste tiden i stället besökt Ligia Kogos klinik. Med 33 000 patienter är Ligia Kogos näst stört i världen på botox, ett rynkutslätande nervgift.

Hos Ligia Kogos arbetar 37 personer ofta dygnet runt. En dos botox kostar 2 500. Men enligt DI får
klinikens personal inklusive städerskor och parkeringsvakter nervgiftet injicerat gratis – vare sig de vill eller inte.

Ingreppen registrerar inte
Plastikkirugi i Rio kostar ned till en tredjedel av vad det kostar i Europa eller USA: Dess-utom behöver ingen där hemma registrera ingreppet.

Why shouldn't they deny it?
Well maybe they could start up their own tabloid than as they are quite busy posting counterstatements. Maybe we should donate an account at TRF to the new press person at the royalcourt. That way he/she could post the counterstatments here too!
