As Portugese is her mother's tongue and she grew up in Brazil I guess she speaks it as good as German.

While in Brazil last week, Queen Silvia gave a long and quite interesting interview, mostly about the purposes of her World Childhood Foundation and her views on issues related to it, but also including a few more personal matters.
Link to the interview in google translation, also with a new portrait taken on the occasion,:

ZDF Royal - ZDF.de

Tonight, there is a documentary about CG on german TV, ZDF

We'll see how realistic it is, but the over-sugarcoated stuff re SRF that has been dominating the german media for decades because of "german" Queen Silvia is a thing of the past now, and not only because of CG's affairs.

Queen Silvia didn´t have her wedding ring at her finger during the visit to Nykvarn. And suddenly during the visit she changed another ring to the wedding ring finger.

Sometimes the gold wears away after a period of time and people send their rings in to be re-gilded. Hopefully that's the case here.

During the past years, Queen Silvia has always been wearing three rings on her wedding ring finger on a daily basis: A ring with a ruby flanked by two diamonds, her wedding ring in the center, and her diamond engagement ring.
She was wearing none of them yesterday.
The sapphire ring she then switched to the wedding ring finger is often seen, but always worn on the other hand.

Anything special about the ruby ring? I understand about the wedding and engagement ring though I personally would feel odd wearing 3 rings on one finger.

Or she just forgot to put them on that morning or maybe her finger was sore. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Her jacket is beautiful! Queen Silvia looks lovely, but I think that she's lost some weight. Her face looks smaller.
