Just as I am with His Pompous Majesty Göran Persson

I'm not sure if we're allowed to have a political discussion here so for now I think we better leave it there, okay
Yes, let´s leave it now.
Nope, not disturbed with Daniel Westling...I learn to like him. But the year 2005 was Victoria-wise not the very "best" I think it´s getting ridiculous with Victoria biting at the press, talking about throne over love etc. So I rather would want a wedding with Daniel at once. A smitten Victoria could make some points at me.

Yah.it'd be really good to see if Queen Elizabeth II be there, but we not sure, we just have to wait and see, as Her Majesty reaches her 80's i'm not sure if she plans to travels more, but it's not nice to send only Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Thank you so much for finding these pictures! The Queen looks great - beautiful, happy, relaxed and in a good mood it seems!

She's in Athens to attend The Suzanne Mubarak Women's International Peace Movement's round table talks about trafficking.

Very nice to see the Queen out and about.

The King got an award today:

Kungen får pris av Situation Stockholm

Publicerad 24 januari 2006 - 18:54
Uppdaterad 24 januari 2006 - 18:55

Kungen har enhälligt blivit vald till 2006 års mottagare av Situation Sthlms nyinstiftade pris Bängkäppen. Prismotiveringen lyder: Kung Carl Gustaf Bernadotte tilldelas Situation Sthlms pris Årets Bängkäpp 2006 för att han har 608 rum i centrala Stockholm, som han inte bor i. Att göra kungen till mottagare av Situation Sthlms första Bängkäpp är en viktig humanitär och demokratisk signal till både hovet och övriga medborgare, säger juryns ordförande, tillika tidningens chefredaktör Ulf Stolt.

My translation:
The homeless people in Stockholm has through their magazine Situation Stockholm (which they sell to earn a little cash, my comment) unanimously awarded King Carl Gustaf Bernadotte with this years ''wooden stick'' award. He gets the prize for having 608 rooms in central Stockholm and not using one single of them to live in. To make the King the receiver of this year's prize is a democratic signal to the court and all citizens, says the chairman of the jury, also the editor the magazine, Ulf Stolt.

So, what do they expect the King to do Open up the castle to 608 homeless people ?? Somehow I suspect it wouldn't even solve these people's problems .... They ought to get a job like everyone else, it's the perfect way to pay one's bills instead of wandering around in the underground trains.

Agreed. The thing is, that most homeless ppl can´t accept help...out of pride or because the next day, they are are too drunken or druggy to remember, what they wanted to do the other day. To say "here you have an apartment" hardly works and is only a superficial solution. But maybe this magazine hopes for some positive attention and thoughtful ppl through such an award. If it works...dunno.

I have heard reports of King Carl Gustav's alleged mistresses does anyone know anything about the King being unfaithful and is it true?

As far as I know it's just rumours made up by tabloids who want to fill empty posters with sensational news. Since these people got a very limited sense of imagination they've so far only matched the King with already famous women (so the reader knows both counterparts and think it's exciting 'news').

(In my opinion it would be more 'real' if he had an affair with someone actually working at one of the castles.)

Some of Carl Gustaf's friends have gotten younger wives, I believe that's the reason why some media started speculating.

But there's never been any evidence and no mistress has ever come forth with her story.

What a scandal.

With his questionnable lifestyle Sven-Göran Eriksson has done nothing but harm to Sweden and it's reputation.

I'm truly ashamed someone like Svennis-Penis gets a medal from the King.

I had higher thoughts about the King :(

"Svennis"

It was decided for more than one year ago (spring 2005) that Sven-Göran Eriksson ("Svennis") should be honoured with av medal from Sweden and that he, as a the famous and capable team manager he is, should receive it from the the hands of HM the King. But "Svennis" was unable to attend the cermony last year, so he got the medal this year instead. And one must remember that "Svennis", was selected to receive the medal for his reputation as a soccer team manager, not as a private person. I, myself, can think about quite a few persons in many countrys who never would have had medals from their countries if it only have been a question about their private lifes, including even Royal persons in different countrys.

Thank you!

Thank you very much, purple platinum, for posting the great pics from the King and Queen from yesterday.
I thought we would only get to see the one picture with the Queen in the background. So I was really disappointed. :(
Now I am glad that I can see what the Queen wore.
By the way: She looks lovely like always. :)

This year does not only mark the King's 60th birthday, but also the 30th wedding anniversary of the King and Queen! On 19 June, Silvia has been Queen of Sweden for 30 years, and this will be marked with a special exhibition.

On 19 May, the Queen herself will open an exhibition showing all of her Nobel dresses as well as the wedding dress at the White Sea in the Royal Palace of Stockholm. To complement the dress exhibition, pictures taken by photographer Charles Hammarsten will show Her Majesty in the dresses at the time she wore them.

Apart from the dress exhibition, there will also be one part dedicated to showing the Queen's everyday work and her many committments. The exhibition is planned to close on 31 August, but can be extended if the public demands so (visitor frequency).

# Information from an article by Dagens Nyheter today, the article can be found here (in Swedish).

I think that this is a wonderful idea, and I will certainly visit the exhibition to see all her lovely dresses in real life, I would love if they also displayed the jewels she has worn particually the tiaras:)
