Yesterday Wednesday, the King granted an audience to the President of Armenia, Mr Robert Kortjarian, at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The visit was part of the programme for the President's official visit to Stockholm for official business.

The Queen's brother dying?

Yesterday Sunday, Aftonbladet wrote that the Queen's youngest brother Jörg Sommerlath may be dying from his cancer. He was diagnosed in December 2004 with throat cancer and has received several treatments since, but in December 2005 his condition deteriorated.

The Queen visited her brother in Germany just after Christmas before going on holiday, and since then she has paid weekly visits to Jörg at the hospital in Berlin. Also this past weekend she was there. The new Director of the Royal Court's Information & Press Office, Nina Eldh, comments this matter to Aftonbladet as follows:

- I can confirm that the Queen's brother is severely ill and that she visits him often.

Aftonbladet also says that the reason why the King and Queen cancelled their appearance at the premiere of "The Masquerade Ball" at the Malmö Opera and Music Theatre this weekend was because the Queen was going to Germany.

The original & full article (in Swedish) can be read [here

The Queen was there according to articles I've read, but so far I haven't had any luck in finding a picture.

Queen Silvia won´t go to the Olympics. She stays with her brother Jörg Sommerlath, 64, who is currently in treatment for cancer of the oesophagus in a hospital in the german town Aachen.
Jörg´s disease was diagnosed in the end of 2004 and he was operated in Feburary 2005. He had quite a good prognosis, but the cancer came stronger back last autumn and he is now very weak.
Let´s hope his condition will improve...I had thought he really overcame it after the surgery and treatment last winter :(

Well, that is really bad news! :(
I really thought that Jörg Sommerlath overcame the cancer. He looked very healthy when he met his sister, the Queen, in Neustadt last year.
Lets hope that he will once again have the power to fight against the cancer!

Aonbladet today wrote that Crown Princess Victoria cancelled her attendance at Princess Christina and Tord Magnusson's moving out party at Villa Beylon which they supposedly hosted yesterday. I guess she did so because of the loss of Jörg, and maybe she has joined the family in Germany/Belgium now.
No, Victoria stayed in Sweden because she has a cold, the royal court said to Aftonbladet
