Accompanied by The King, Queen Silvia opened the exhibition of paintings by 19th century romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich with quite an interesting, long speech in German and Swedish, which royalcourt published on the website:
http://www.royalcourt.se/kungafamilj...380003613.html
She wore an elegant outfit of amethyst colored velvet jacket with interesting lapel detailing (a repeat) and dark grey-purple dress:

According to a finnish newspaper Satakunnan Kansa, king Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia were in Finland on a private visit during the weekend. They were at an elk-hunting in Noormarkku, hosted by Robin Ahlström, Chairman of the board of Ahlstrom Oy.

Queen Silvia is currently on a two-day trip to Washington in her function as President of Mentor International.
Among other high profile appointments, she had the meeting with Michelle Obama “to discuss opportunities to collaborate in their shared concerns for the positive health and development of young people”, to quote the website of the Mentor Foundation.

I am very sorry, but moving posts isn’t quite correct here:
Although Mentor International published details about Queen Silvia’s current trip to to Washington on their website, her high profile meetings in the capitol yesterday were held as Queen of Sweden and not only for ‘Mentor’.
Apart from meeting First Lady Michelle Obama yesterday, Silvia also met Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and members of US health organizations.
While her talks with Clinton focused on the ‘Mentor Columbia’ division and measures on drug prevention in this country, her talks with Obama were also about a possible collaboration of the First Lady with Queen Silvia’s own ‘World Childhood Foundation’.
Swedish newspaper Göteborgs-Posten has an article and interview about the whole US trip:
