Does anybody of you know, if Queen Silvia returns to Heidelberg, Germany, after travelling over half the earth :) .

I´m very interested in this because, one of my relative knows some Sommerlaths.
And i think i remember that someone of my family told me something about Silvia.

It would be nice, when someone has an answer for me!

Other question, were there any other of the swedish royality at the funeral of the pope?

Yesterday the Queen attended a research seminar arranged by The Parkinson Fund in Stockholm in connection with the World Parkinson Day - a day that was also used to launch the new world symbol for this disease, the "red tulip".

The Queen is the protector of The Parkinson Fund, and here is a beautiful picture from the fund where the Queen holds the new symbol in her hands:

What source do you have for this info?

As far as I know, the information (by the media) is that King Carl XVI Gustaf will represent Sweden without his wife at the funeral on Friday 15 April. It's not clear wheter there will be any additional representative/s (from the government for ex) yet.

Queen Silvia will be in Mariefred on Friday for the celebrations around “The World’s Children’s Prize for The Rights of The Child", and I don't think she will have time to go.

The King founded a new leadership award today!

Today, Tuesday 12 April, His Majesty The King founded a new leadership award, “The Young Leader of the Year”! Starting in 2006, two young leaders will get this award every year – one from the business life and one from the scouting movement. The recipients will be awarded their prizes in a yearly ceremony attended by the King.

The presentation of the award was made during a leadership seminar hosted by The Swedish Guide and Scout Council, “Leadership for Sweden” at the Royal Palace this afternoon. The seminar was held on the King’s initiative, and at the same time a project to create a certified leadership education in 2007 in the King’s name was presented - a gift from The Swedish Guide and Scout Council on the occasion of the King celebrating 50 years as a scout.

The seminar and presentations was attended by people from (of what I can tell) The Swedish Guide and Scout Council, the Swedish Olympic Committee, The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, the business life and the Baden Powell Fellows Sweden Chapter.

According the the Court website both the King and Queen will attend the funeral.

Thank you, now I can see it too - and I'm very surprised, almost shocked - Princess Christina will award ”The World's Childrens' Prize For The Rights Of The Child” instead of the Queen! I really didn't think she would pass on this prize which is so close to her heart, but of course it's a very important funeral, even though sending only the King would be okay too I think.

I was surprised as well, but I guess HSH funeral was more important this year. I'm sure we will see her attend again next year.

It has been announced that The King and Queen will be Sweden's representatives at the funeral of H.S.H. Prince Rainier of Monaco on Friday 15 April.

On the day of the funeral there will be the traditional "serafimerringning" (bells toll of the Seraphim) in the Riddarholmen Church in Stockholm, and in connection with this his orden coat of arms will be mounted in the church alongside the other decead knights or members of the Order of the Seraphim. Prince Rainier was made a Knight of the Order of the Seraphim in 1949.

Today, Friday 15 April, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia attended Prince Rainier's funeral in Monaco. I attach some pics from that.

Also today, between noon and one o'clock, the traditional "serafimerringning" (church bells toll of the Seraphim) for Prince Rainier took place in the Riddarholmen Church in Stockholm, as always happens when a Knight or Member of the Order of the Seraphim is buried. In connection with the bells toll, his orden coat of arms was mounted in the church alongside the other deceased knights and members of the Order of the Seraphim. Prince Rainier was made a Knight of the Order of the Seraphim in 1949. I attach a picture of Prince Rainier's Order of the Seraphim coat of arms:

The King gave an interview where he talked about the days after the Tsunami.

perhaps someone with better english than me could translate it?
