Now that the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations of King Bhumibol of Thailand are over, and most royals have returned home to go on vacation or continue their official work, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia will remain in Thailand for a private vacation from 14-20 June.

The Royal Couple will celebrate their 30th wedding day, 19 June, this coming Monday, in the country, and Swedish media have reported that they are expected to make some visits in connection to the tsunami of 2004.

They will mainly be staying in the Andaman region, and media say that they will live in a private villa at the Trisara Resort in Phuket. Their activities includes meetings with Swedish nationals, visits to main tourist attractions and a visit to the Bangkok Hospital in Phuket, were a conference room has been named after the King. They will probably also make a visit to the Phang Nga province with a visit to Khao Lak included. Expressen today writes that a visit to an orphanage has been taken off the schedule due to fraud allegations from Thai authorities.

The King and Queen on holiday in Thailand

From the Bangkok Post:

"The Swedish royal couple arrived in Phuket yesterday and will stay until Tuesday.

The governor said the Swedish royals are staying at their friend's house in Thalang district. Their itinerary probably includes a tour of Phangnga Bay, visiting tsunami-ravaged Ban Nam Khem village in Phangnga's Takua Pa district and the Swedish-owned rubber glove factory in Thalang district of Phuket"

The King helps the earthquake victims of Pakistan – by buying a cabin

After the earthquake catastrophe in Pakistan in 2005, the Swedish-Pakistani chief physician Saeed Zahra Isaksson Stammler from Kista, a suburb to Stockholm, founded the help organisation AAPKI Foundation. On her initiative, together with the company Sorselestugan (“The Sorsele Cabin”) and the municipality of Sorsele, they have started a project that is working towards sending 1 000 cabins to Pakistan, to house widows and their children (the target group of the project) – the SFPEV project (Shelter For Pakistan Earthquake Victims). To do this, help/money is needed from companies and individuals who are ready to buy one or several cabins for the project. The goal is to have delivered 200 cabins by the end of the year. In January this year, 32 cabins with fireplaces were delivered.

Earlier in June, the King bought one cabin with a fireplace that he donated to the project. The cabin was set up yesterday at the Royal Mews, and will work as an exhibition example for donors and people who are interested in helping this project.

Tonight Crown Princess Victoria will attend a reception and information meeting at the Royal Mews about this project, and attending will be 40-60 people and representatives of companies that have bought cabins for the project.

Cool

The royal couple are back in Sweden and celebrated midsummer on Solliden.
Yesterday they went biking with their bodyguards.
- The King was always 30 metres ahead of the others. He seemed tired of the bodyguards.

After a free weekend its back to work for the royal couple. For the month of July several official visits is on the schedule, first Leipzig and then a trip to China. In China they´ll meet the president.
Thats probably why they appreciated the free weekend at Öland.
- They had a very nice midsummer weekend and celebrated traditionally with friends, said Nina Eldh at the royal court.

Thanks for the photos. I'm really loving Queen Silvia's outfits at the moment. Not that I didn't like them before, but they seem to suit her much more, especially the colours. They seem a little more modern. The king is certainly impressed with this red-caped man here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...7&d=1151505194 :p

ALVARET, ÖLAND 2006-06-25.
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden take a spin on their bikes. The King seemed a bit tired of the ever-present bodyguards, and pedalled well ahead of his company, leaving Queen Silvia and a bodyguard 30 metres behind.

from Polfoto (no 1&2 is Silvia with the bodyguard)
