Today the Queen inaugurated "The Children's House" in the city of Linköping in the Östergötland County. The Children's House is "children friendly house" where children whom have suffered from abuse will be in the center for inquiries and crisis efforts. In this house, the experts will gather around the child, who won't be allowed to be put through endless interviews and telling their stories, instead everything will be taken care of at this place. World Childhood Foundation, founded by Queen Silvia, has supported this project.

If you go to this Swedish Radio site and click on "Hör Drottning Silvia", you can hear a clip with the Queen speaking.

Picture one is from the Royal Court, picture two is from Norrköpings Tidningar, pictures three and four is from Östgöta Correspondenten and picture five is from Swedish Radio.

Summary of an Expressen article:

This coming Friday, the King and Queen will attend the funeral of one of their best friends, the recently deceased Baroness Charlotte Klingspor Rosenörn-Lehn.

The funeral service will be held in Tåssjö Church which is situated near the estate of the family’s estate, Rössjöholm Manor. The family has its own part of the graveyard, which was exchanged for a piece of the manor’s estate. Charlotte will be buried on the church’s graveyard, and she will be the first in the Rosenörn-Lehn family, descending from Denmark, to rest there.

The church takes 270 people, and several hundred funeral guests are expected on Friday. Priest Henrik Grape, from the Church of Sweden, will lead the ceremony, which will include a lot of music. A selection of folk music, ballads and classical music. Orsa Spelmän and Kalle Moraeus, one of Sweden’s most famous folk music groups, will play at the funeral.

You can find the full & original article here.

If you want to know a little bit more about Charlotte and her death, click here to read an older post of mine regarding her sudden passing in another thread.

Here are some more pictures from the King's visit to Skaraborg's flotilla formation, F 7 in Såtenäs in the Västra Götaland County, last Friday 30 September. The pictures are from the Royal Court's website.

Picture from the Rottneros' company website

Today the King visited three cities in Västernorrland County; Örnsköldsvik, Utansjö and Härnösand.

One of his stops during the day-long visit was to Utansjö, where he opened the company Rottneros' facility for the new production line for CTMP pulp. Pictures (too big to post) can be found here.

Yesterday (6th October) was the 100 jubilee celebrations of The Federation of Private Enterprises at City Hall, Stockholm. Was this a Gala at the evening or celebration in the afternoon?
I hope, we will see pictures from the event.

Yesterday, 7 October, the King and Queen attended the funeral of one of their best friends - Baroness Charlotte Klingspor Rosenörn-Lehn (who died from liver cancer recently). The funeral took place in Tåssjö Church near the family estate Rössjöholm Manor in Skåne County. The pictures are a choice of those from Isifa.

Summary of an Expressen article today:



Taken by the sad moment and with tears in her eyes, the Queen arrived arm-in-arm with the King to the funeral of one of their closest friends yesterday, Friday 7 October. They arrived just before two in the afternoon, and took their seats in the church just before the family of the diseased did so. 250 people attended the funeral held in Tåssjö Church near the family’s estate Rössjöholm Manor in Skåne County, and among the other guests were the diseased Charlotte’s ex-husband, Austrian ex-alpine star Egon Zimmerman, and a large part of the nobility of Skåne.

The funeral was a musical one, the guests listened to evergreens like “Stardust” and “Body & soul” performed by Orsa Spelmän with Kalle Moraeus (a very popular Swedish group), and four of Benny Andersson’s beautiful Swedish compositions. Solist Karin Fridh also sang a part from the opera “Carmina Burana”.

- Charlotte loved to dance and wished for a funeral with light, said Kalle Moraeus.

- The music will put words to the emotions, said priest Henrik Grape, in a speech by the coffin.

The traditional Swedish psalm “Härlig är jorden” (“Glorious is the earth”) ended the 40 minutes long funeral.




The orginal & full article (in Swedish) can be found here.

Even though I like seeing new photos of them, I think its a bit sad that there´s paparazzis waiting for them when they leaves the church. It was the same thing when they attended the funeral of Björn Kreuger, also a close family friend.

Must be hard to "put on a face" when one just have attened a funeral

I agree completely. I´m usually welcoming every Paparazzi-picture. But at funerals there´s a limit for me. And to be honest, I also wouldn´t mind, when there would be no media-covered state funerals for Royals (except they have expressed this wish in their testaments).
