This past Wednesday 25 May, the King honoured the Swedish Wetland Fund’s 10th Anniversary by visiting his own estate Stenhammar as well as Öster Malma and their wetlands, all on the West Coast. Pictures from Eskilstunakuriren. For those of you who read Swedish, there's a very nice and informative article here

Thanks for the photos today, GrandDuchess. He´s got that funny look again in the third photo. He seems like he is up to again. Anyway, put the King into the wild and he is at his best and most relaxed.

hmm, exactly where is that? Isn´t Stenhammar close to Flen, on the east coast? Well, actually its not on the coast, but in the central parts of Sweden but closer to the east.
Or perhaps is it a different place? I´m confused :)

Here a link to website "Svenska Seglarförbundet". At 16th April 2005 was the King and Queen to 100years-celebration at Grand Hotel. Unfortunately I can find pictures from this event.

Who has seen pictures from the Gala?

Well...it was definitly NOT an arranged marriage! There have been rumours of affairs, but surely they weren't true, since they were created by german newspapers, mainly. The royal couple have sued german newspapers exactly for creating rumours like that, about affairs, a divorce and so on. This, I think, shows that they are plain tired of false rumours, because they really are happy together! Queen Silvia has also said that they are very happily married. So anyway, I hope this answers your question!? Otherwise, just have a look at some photos in here, and then I'm sure you'll know what I'm talking about when I clame that they are happily married :-)

hey thanks for that i never really knew much about them or their marriage so that was great.

Although the king and queen are said to have a very happy marriage, there are very few photos of them being close in public. does anyone know of any? or are they a little prudish?

I'm not sure actually, but I think they think that is something that it's something very private...Don't know...but it's annoying that there aren't any more photos of them being close..that's true!!...:-)

yeah i agree, obviously they have to be professional at state functions but sometimes it would be nice to see some form of closeness.

Rightfully so. Creating rumours about people is a very hurtful thing.

From my experience I can say, that the chances aren´t too big to get any pics, when the meeting took place in the castle. Obviously Scanpix and the royalcourt haven´t the pics by now, so I doubt we will ever see pics of this meeting

Sometimes I wonder, if you read mysterious "ghost-posts", when you read actually mine.
I haven´t said something like that. I´ve just meant, that the chances are simply not to high to get to see pics from the castle.
IMO the reason is, that such pics are considered as "less interesting" and so less photographers show up. And I guess such a lunch is also considered as a more "intimate meeting" and as meeting, where details are planned, so cameras aren´t welcome...

Haha I think pics would be interesting. Esp as there are no interesting news right now! Like Crown Princess is unmarried and expecting or Maddes car got stolen (including cam with private pics) or CPs dog got a heart attack or made wee wee in the park.
