I would like to thank you, too, Adry, for posting the nice pics. It is good to see the Queen again after the tragic death of her brother.
Hope they will enjoy their stay in Spain!

How exciting they went to Tibro.
I just got a new kitchen which is manufactured in Tibro.

Nice pictures from Spain.

In Aftonbladet they mention this week the King and Silvia are in Sierra Nevada. It says Silvia is taking some rest to mourn her late brother.

Sierra Nevada is a ski resort in the south of Spain. You can see over to Morocco on a bright day. Perfect for skiing and tanning !!

Really lovely photos. Thanks for posting them. I love Queen Silvia's ski boots: http://img126.imagevenue.com/img.php...e=98786_15.jpg I hope that the media haven't been 'stalking' them their whole trip, and they've had time to themselves. Silvia has had a tough time these past few weeks, and she needs a break.

Carl Gustav and Silvia of Sweden have spent four days in Sierra Nevada. Although many people have wanted to see in this "winter escape" an introduction to a key celebration (in June the couple turns thirty years of marriage) the Queen has denied it. These are merely four days of rest, in company of friends.

Independently of the reason (others aim that they are concentrating energies to celebrate by the sixtieth birthday of the Monarch, in April), the fact is thatis that it was possible to be seen them happy and very smiling, with a group of friends, enjoying the snow and the zone.

The King’s sixtieth birthday guest has not been revealed yet, but Government and Chiefs of State, legislators and outstanding businessmen, along with the citizens, will probably be all gathered in Stockholm. In 1996, when the Monarch turned fifty years old, more than ten thousand people wanted to personally congratulate the King and went to the outside of Palace to show their affection to him. According to Nina Eldh, for this occasion, at least the same number of people is expected. The celebrations of the birthday will begin with a religious service in the cathedral of the Swedish capital, followed by a change of the guard in the palace and a lunch in the Town Hall of Stockholm. At night, the Kings will attend a concert in the throne’s hall of the Palace, followed by a gala dinner.

Then, in June, the thirtieth wedding anniversary of the Monarchs will fill again the streets of Stockholm with joy. On this occasion, the RoyalPalace will lodge a peculiar exhibition showing all the gala dresses so far worn by Queen Silvia, at the ceremonies of the Nobel Prize. It will be a total of twenty-nine gowns, since the Queen wasn’t able to attend the most important acts of this Scandinavian kingdom in 1980, due to health problems.

Here are two pictures from the article that the magazine Gringo had about the Queen a while ago. They are both scanned by me and taken by Gringo's editorial photographer.

Summary of an Aftonbladet article today...

The King asks for larger funding allocations from the State

In preparations for the coming ”spring budget” that will be presented by the Government in April, the Royal Court have sent in their documentation to The Ministry of Finance before the settlement of their funding allocations in the coming budgets.

For next year, the Royal Court is asking for 12 million SEK more than in the previous budget, from the present 97,5 million SEK to 109,6 million SEK, and then following increases in the coming budgets.

The Royal Court is asking for more money for various reasons, one major issue being their wish to increase the security at the Royal Palace, a total of 4,7 million SEK is asked for in order to install a “security arch” of the same type one can find at airports, which would register any metal objects and eventual guns or other weapons that visitors could carry.
- It doesn’t have to be shooting weapons, it could be knives and other things, says Super Intendent Bengt Telland to Aftonbladet.

Another increasing post in the Royal Court’s budget is the cost of Crown Princess Victoria. In the documentation they write: “The Crown Princess’ increasing commitments in the duties of the Head of State brings increased costs for planning, office service, transports, security, information etc”.

- With this we want to show that the costs are rising, says the Marshal of The Realm.

The Royal Court is asking for the following sums for funding allocations from the State in the coming years:

2007: 109 618 000 million SEK
2008: 110 842 000 million SEK
2009: 113 616 000 million SEK

(*1 million SEK = 125 675,51 USD and 105 025,47 EUR)

What a pitty that the once so beautiful woman has destroyed her face like that:( She can harldy smile anylonger, she needs to let nature take its course and accept that she is in her 60s, more will only do more harm

The Queen will serve as the official protector of the 19th European Athletics Championships 2006 to be held in Gothenburg 6-13 August. I hope we will get to see some members of the Royal Family there to watch the competitions!

The Queen is Honorary Chairman of The Swedish Athletic Association.
