I think Carl Gustaf looks really good in these vacation pictures - very relaxed, happy, and seems to enjoy himself, and I like what he's wearing. He's on vacation afterall, so he can hardly be expected to wear a suit and a tie. Silvia is just beautiful no matter what, and the cap suits her - very sporty.

Thanks for these wonderful vacation pictures. :)

Hallo Larzen,
many thanks for the nice holiday pictures from St.Maxime. Who is Mr. and Mrs. Medel Svensson? Are there friends of the king and queen from Sweden?

In Sweden we use the name "medelSvensson" when we talk about very avarege, normal people doing normal things that everyone does.
Perhaps it could be translated as "Mr Nelson" or "Mr Smith" or something like that in english. Svensson is a very common name in Sweden so thats the reason why its called "medel (=avarage")Svensson

The king and queen arriving at an Swedish airport (probably on Öland) after spending a few days in South France. Facetoface

Gunilla Von Bismark invites to her house the Kings of Sweden.
It's been sometime that Gunilla did not celebrate any party. But after this one it's sure that Gunilla will repeat. The German invited all her friends, among them the Kings of Sweden, to the inauguration of her new house in Marbella. There they must had a good time, because some of them were disguised.

Oh my god, how can the Queen wear that costume in this weather!? Sweden is experiencing one of the warmest summers in a long time, it's like Mediterranean weather here - and I would think no one could even imagine putting on such a costume at this time...

This year was the 26th year that the prize "Öland inhabitant of the Year" was awarded. The prize was a glass bowl designed by Professor Erika Lagerbielke for Orrefors. Popular artist Lill Lindfors sang during the ceremony.

And I just have to quite was this one guy said the newspaper Barometern:
- It's a mere accident that we're here. We didn't even know the King would be here when we came to Solliden. When we saw it, I thought we had to see this. I have always dreamt about seeing the King, says Glenn Larsson from Bjärnum.

Well maybe the speaker of the parliament could turn back the crown in the name of the king

I've just posted some pictures of King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia at the 60th birthday celebrations of Crown Prince Alexander II of Yugoslavia in their family's thread. The celebrations took place at the Royal Palace in Belgrade yesterday, 17 July 2005.

You can find the pictures here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...&postcount=130

Summary of an Aftonbladet article:

http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/nyhete...675469,00.html

Today Aftonbladet reports that the King has added another car to his stable of cars. It is a BMW M3 CSL, a model only made in 1 500 copies. The silver grey coupé is a two-dor and has a six cylinder motor. It has a collector's value, so the price remains high, about $100 000. Apparently the King likes to drive (fast) around on the Solliden estate ("He has been driving like mad at the Palace", as an "eyewitness" said to Aftonbladet).

Last year the King was close to buying the world's fastest sports car, the Swedish made Koenigsegg (too bad he didn't, that would've been a sight!), apparently he will settle for his new BMW for now.
