Here is an article about King Carl Gustaf in New York:

Kungen av New York! - Nyheter - Expressen.se

BTW does the Queen join the King? I just thought about it because she has no official engagemants until the King returns to Sweden.

A bit disrespectful that they kept refering to the king as "Gustaf" in those articles...

The Queen looks very tired to me. Is she well? Maybe she's just tired from the visit to Ukraine...

Truly it is the first time she actually looks aged. In a previous photo with the children in the red suit she looked lovely. These photos make her look much older. Perhaps as you said she was tired.

IMO it is okay if she looks aged! Don't forget that she will turn 65 in december.
And I think there were moments when she looked much much older.
