The south Swedish newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad reports that this past Monday, 19 September, the King was in Skåne County. He participated in a closed (invitees only) racing competition at Ring Knutstorp (car racing course), and during the day he also had time to try three different BMW's and one Lamborghini. He won one of the competitions, and received a radio controlled truck as a prize.

(sorry, but no picture! I think they had one, but I can't find it online... Maybe Yennie has this newspaper? )

Yesterday the Queen opened the new Children’s and Youth Psychiatric Clinic at the old Sachsska Hospital in Stockholm. I add a selection of the pictures from Imagine Scandinavia, since they will soon disappear.

The first three days of the week the king and queen had a lot of official terms (meeting world childhood, lunch with parlament, world demenz-day, crafoord-prize-award ...) but we don't see pictures from all the events! also nothing by royalcourt!!! Why?
It is about the trouble between royalcourt and swedish press about the defamation of the king?

Here is a recent portrait photograph of the Queen, taken by photo artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin for her new book "Kvinnor" ("Women"), which is a celebration for all women. The picture is from her official website, http://www.ohlson.se/

On this picture, the Queen is standing on the balcony at Drottningholm Palace, facing the palace park.

Yesterday, Tuesday 27 September, the King and Queen attended the Church Service of The Church of Sweden's Church Assembly 2005 in the Uppsala Cathedral, followed by the opening of The Church of Sweden's Church Assembly 2005 at the Uppsala University Assembly Hall.

Pictures from the Church of Sweden (in the pictures together with Their Majesties, you can see the Archbishop K.G. Hammar, County Governor Anders Björck and the Chairman of the Church Assembly 2005).

Today, Wednesday 28 September, the King and Queen began their two-day theme visit to Östergötland County. The theme of the visit is public and youth health (consisting of visits and seminars), and the visit is arranged by the County Administrative Board of Östergötland together with The Swedish National Institute of Public Health.

Today the King and Queen visited the Vreta School in Mjölby, where they showed up their pedagogical "outdoors method" which they use. The Chairman of the City Council also presented them with the municipality of Mjölby's gift, two glass chandelieres from Mantorp Works/Industies.

* Radip clip = if you go here and click on "Hör kungen och drottningen", you get to hear a clip from Radio Östergötland.


Picture one is from the County Administrative Board, number three is from Norrköpings Tidningar, number four and five are from Swedish Radio, number six to ten are from the Veta School.

Thank you for the picture, GrandDuchess.

Personally I liked the (balcony) pictures for the book on Silvia to the silver jubilee better. Well, this one is rather modern (which probably meets the standards of Ohlson Wallin´s book)

I´ve wondered that for a long time...and maybe it´s just me...why does the left eye of the queen look in a lot of pics bigger??

Perhaps because it really is bigger. Most people have two differen "sides" of their face that isn´t similar to eachother.
I think it is so, that "beautiful people" often has very similar halfs and thats why we see them as beautiful
For example the swedish actress Isabella Scorupco has two identical "sides" and thats why she is "beautiful"

Yes, I know, what you mean. I also know this theory, that symmetry should make people beautiful. But I don´t believe in it too much. As much as I know this theory is based on the idea, that "symmetric" ppl are healthier and more fertile. Symmetry is more or less about bone structure, but to me the non-static factors (such as skin colour, look of the eyes, hair structure...) seem more important (for the choice of a "fertile" partner).
Well, scientists need something to research, so I will let them their belief and will admit, that I´m awkward :p

But back to Silvia...to me the younger Silvia had quite symmetric eyes. Couldn´t it be, that this bigger eye is an self made problem...in other words, could it be, that a doctor has paralysed a little nerve (?)

I've noticed that in photographs of Princess Diana too - very noticeable.

Could be, she has done several face lifts and probably eye lifts aswell....
so perhaps its sometning like a paralysed nerve... I´m not a doctor so I have no idea if its possible to do so or not :)

Today, Thursday 29 September, the King and Queen continued their two-day theme visit to Östergötland County. The theme of the visit is public and youth health (consisting of visits and seminars), and the visit is arranged by the County Administrative Board of Östergötland together with The Swedish National Institute of Public Health.

Today the programme consisted of information about children and youth health and the municipality of Linköping preventive work on the area, and a visit to the Family Central Myran in Linköping where they met with children, their parents and the staff.

Pictures one to three are from Östgöta Correspondenten and pictures four to six are from the County Administrative Board (in the pictures are the King and Queen together with the County Governor and his wife).

Yesterday, Thursday 29 September, the King and Queen received a gift from a children’s home in Liberia at Drottningholm Palace. It was the military unit LA 03, which is the Swedish contingent of the UN’s peacekeeping force, UNMIL, in Liberia, that received a half an hour audience with the Royal Couple to hand over the gift from Africa.

The Swedish contingent, LA 03, is running two humanitarian projects on a voluntary basis in Liberia while being there with the UN forces. The projects are focused on one professional school and one children’s home for orphaned children. The Swedish soldiers in the Swedish contingent raise money for the projects, and help out with their own voluntary work in different forms.

The projects and the Swedish help has meant that a house has been built for the orphaned children in Monrovia, earlier 48 children lived in one house, now they will be able to have separate sleeping spaces for boys and girls. Another house is about to be built. The project also involves social contact. For example the children were invited to a party on the Swedish National Day.

As a sign of the children’s gratitude towards the Swedish contingent and Sweden, the LA 03 military unit handed over a gift that they had carried with them from Liberia, which they received on Liberia’s National Day in July, all the way to Stockholm for the King and Queen as a symbol for Sweden.

Today the King made a defence unit visit when he visited Skaraborg's flotilla formation, F 7 in Såtenäs in the Västra Götaland County.

The King received a briefing about the unit's work in Afghanistan, Thailand, evacuation of staff from the Ivory Coast, the hurricanes Gudrun and Katrina. Then the King was informed about the transport unit's test work, visited the hangar and got acquainted with the F 7's 130 Hercules plane simulator.
