What's all this about Queen Silvia being chased by a photographer from Aftonbladet in New York?

I understand she fell in an attempt to avoid a persistent photographer and injured her foot and hand.

I've been skimming some of the Swedish papers and the editor in chief of Aftonbladet express his regret.
The court is apparantly labelling this as harrassment. (Ufredande = harrassment?) That could point to a legal action of some sort.

Can Swedish members please elaborate?

A statement was released by the Court earlier regarding the incident (why a play-by-play was necessary from a PR standpoint is beyond me), and Queen Silvia did appear at the Health & Human Rights Awards with her wrist wrapped in a bandage and her foot in a brace with a crutch.

Thanks, JessRulz

The story from Expressen is pretty dramatic: Hovet: Fotografen förföljde henne - Nyheter - Senaste nytt | Expressen - Nyheter Sport Ekonomi Nöje

But what do you mean by "play-by-play"? I haven't heard that expression before.

A 'play-by-play' is when you described something exactly as it happened - for example: I woke up this morning, then got out of bed, got changed in XYZ, went and brushed my teeth...

This is a classic example of irresponsible behaviour by certain sections of the fourth estate!

In conjunction with the Queen's visit to the U.S. media has been intrusive in order to get pictures and interviews with the Queen and Princess Madeleine. During a visit to a store on Monday afternoon April 4, the Queen and Princess Madeleine tried to avoid a photographer from Swedish media (Aftonbladet). The photographer did not take notice of their request not to be photographed and remained at the front door of the store. The Queen chose to go out through a side door and walked quickly toward a parked car in order to keep away from the photographer who ran after her. The Queen then fell and injured her foot and wrist. The Queen's schedule remains and she will receive the Health and Human Rights Award tonight in New York as originally planned.

The chief editor from Aftonbladet apologized publicly on the radio (SR P4) this afternoon.

It's pretty serious if she needs a crutch and a bandage on her wrist.

The Press department of SRF has already done a few let's say "interesting choices" this year, so a play-by-play in their statement does not surprise me.

Queen Silvia really has bad luck lately, first the sickness, now injured wrist and foot.

Queen felt that she was cornered

Tonight has been a debate, following the event when the Queen Silva was injured because of a paparazzi photographer from Aftonbladet that did not respect the Queen, Princess Madeleine and their societies. Evening newspaper Aftonbladet writes:

"Royal Court's press officer: Queen felt that she was cornered.
Queen's event in New York when she was photographed by the Times was an unfortunate one-off.

It considers the court press officer Bertil Ternert who on Wednesday visited the editors to discuss the incident in Debate Live with Karin Magnusson.

Queen Silvia was doing under the circumstances and will be under court order to fulfill its mission in the near future.

It was last Monday as the queen fell on a sidewalk in New York in connection with the Aftonbladet photographer wanted to take a picture. The event has received considerable attention both in Sweden and in our neighboring countries.

At Aftonbladet editorial
On Wednesday visited the Royal Court press officer Bertil Ternert Aftonbladet editorial for a live conversation about the incident.

- The Queen felt that she was cornered in the situation and tried to get to a waiting car, that's when she fell over a garbage bag, "said Bertil Ternert.

Aftonbladet editor Jan Helin regretted the incident and says that the magazine has a very clear policy on how the royal family should be monitored and when it is okay to take a picture.

- Our approach to this sort of situation can really be worded simply: It is fair, respect always the answer. In this case, the photographer, so I can gather, has not respected the answer, "says Helin.

- It is entirely my responsibility. It is I who has failed to comply with the instructions to the photographer.

"A one-off"
According to Bertil Ternert experiencing the queen rarely any problem with being photographed, either by the press or private citizens.

- The queen is a person who has a good relationship with photographers and has at all times tried to talk with photographers and set up. This was an isolated event.

Bertil Ternert has previously said that the Queen became a victim of a molestation of Aftonbladet photographer, but it's choice of words he now plays down.

- Definition of molestation, I used to describe the queen knew that she could not choose the end she was going out of the store. Legally, I do not know where the event ports.

Bertil Ternert says he has great respect for the Aftonbladet has handled the matter".

Königin Silvia: Schwer gestürzt

sorry but this is blown out of porportion really, some papers are already comparing the situation to diana

it cannot be news to members of the srf that photographers will take any opportunity to take pictures, has been the case for decades now, this case is unfortunate because silvia fell and injured herself, there wasnt any direct impact from the photographer other than that silvia wanted to be outwit the press and leave through the back door. too bad that a garbage bag got in her way.

the "annus horriblis" for the srf seems to continue.

The incident where HM Queen Silvia fell and injured himself in the foot and the arm has launched a new debate on media coverage of the royal family. According to the Royal Court was an accident when the Queen and Princess Madeleine trying to escape from Aftonbladet-photographer Pontus Höök.

There is no reason to downplay the incident.

Would you not have tried to protect your daughter if any photographer trying to squeeze into the room where she undress and tryed out clothes?

Queen Silvia of Sweden is known as a person who is extremely friendly to the media and she will always be there for pictures. It sought to penetrate all the way into the room where the royal switched on to get pictures of where Princess Madeleine was going to try new clothes. One person I know personally and who are very credible appeared at the event. There are five witnesses to the events. Aftonbladet photographer haunted queen and her company and positioned themselves outside the store and shot straight into. Queen's security personnel (guards from the Swedish security police, SÄPO) ​​appealed to the photographer to please go back and not be so intrusive. The queen and her company felt that they could not go through the normal door. Instead they chose a side door. Aftonbladet's photographer will then have run and tried to block the way of royalties. The editor in chief has confirmed the incident and took the blame to Aftonbladet photographer on this occasion not instructed on the ethics of the newspaper is in such situations. The queen is used to being photographed and it was not the case that she only wanted to escape being photographed. It is rather persecution. She chose to take a different outcome from the store, and stressed on the steps to get to the car. Then she fell and hurt her foot and injured her hand. We must first remind ourselves that the Queen is 67 years old and she has five photographers who follow every step she takes around the clock during his U.S. stay. It is not too much brgärt the respect a lady of 67 years. Happens to also be the lady Queen, she will not respects less!

Daniel Nyhlén writes at his blog that he is surprised that no one from the media (not even the evening tabloids) has paid attention to that queen Silvia visited the gun shop Beretta, just been writing about the incident with the photographer. Daniel Nyhlén points out the view of the endangered animals that the store has been stuffed on the walls. According to sources, Silvia was there to shop for a gift for the king. This was revealed in "Aschberg" on radio1 with Robbie Aschberg where Nyhlén was today as a guest. They also send a question to Bertil Tennert about it.
