I love the pictures. The king and queen look like they're from the 40s or 50s. Very cute.

Do you know, what are the king and queen doing at time and next week?

Next week (week 34) the royal couple hasn't official engagement, only the crown princess!
Last years the king and queen was attend by "Waterprize" celebration-gala, this year only Victoria!

I would say that they're still on holiday after a very busy first half year 2006, don't know where though.

GrandDuchess, thanks for your information. But I must say, that they have very long holiday, since Mid of June?! At last years they start the work in the middle of August.

Well they've had a very busy first half 2006, so I think they more than deserve their long holiday. I'm very impressed with their work so far, they've been abroad a lot - and more is to come this autumn...

From January to July 2006 - the King, Queen or both have been in:

- Athens, Greece
- Bangkok, Thailand
- London, England
- New York, the USA
- Turin, Italy
- Kiel, Germany
- Berlin, Germany
- Leipzig, Germany
- Essen, Germany
- Munich, Germany
- Luxembourg

- Turkey, State Visit
- China, State Visit

Most Swedes went back to work last week or this week, so the King and Queen aren't that different in how they plan their vacations.

They also had to break off their holiday for the State Visit to China, which took some of their holiday away. So I guess it varies from year to year how they plan things, but this year they've been working so hard, they have certainly earned their time off.

GrandDuchess, I agree with you - the royal couple had a very busy half year 2006.

But they are holiday, too (Beginning-Middle January, March, April and from Middle June...).

I mean the royal couple was attend by "Waterfestival" last years and the crown princess celebrated only the junior-award.

Today the King and Queen attended the Installation and Solemn Welcoming Church Service for the new Archbishop Electus, Anders Wejryd, in the Uppsala Cathedral in the City of Uppsala - the seat of the Church of Sweden.



The three first pics are by Hans E Ericson/Uppsala Nya Tidning, the four last ones are by Jim Elfström/Ikon.

Yesterday Monday, the Queen received a large group of German and Swedish high school students at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The students were from the Vasa High School in Arboga, Sweden, and Marienschule in Münster, Germany. Since 1983 the two schools have had exchanges between each other, and during the German class' and the host families traditional visit to Stockholm, it was the youngsters wish to meet Queen Silvia - which she agreed too.

The Queen received a hand carved basket with products from Münster and Nordrein-Westphalen as a gift.

The visit to Vasa, Day 1 - 13 September

- Arrival at Vasa airfield (with regular flight)
- Welcoming by the City Council's Chairman and wife together with the City Director and wife.
- Welcoming with song and flags by children (the children had been in a draw on who got to attend the welcoming)
- Luncheon with city representatives at the old County Governor's Residence (lamb noisettes, smoked perch, sea buckthorn cream with vanilla cream)
- Visit to The Vaasa Court of Appeals
- Guided tour of Vasa and the Korsholm church
- Public event at the city's main square. Appearance before the gathered crowd, the King opened the newly renvated square and main street, held a speech (6-8 000 people were there)
- Appearance on the balcony of the City Hall together with the President of Finland and her husband
- Dinner for the King and Queen at the City Hall, attended by the President of Finland and her husband Dr Pentti Arajärvi

The evening's menu consisted of dieshes made by regionally produced groceries, several of the region's companies and growers had been involved to bring out the best primary products. The hunting clubs of the area had delivered the dove. The King's speech at the dinner (in Swedish) can be read here.
