Video with the King and Queen on world scout meeting

King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia came in unexpected visit to World scout meeting (Jamboree) outside Kristianstad in southern Sweden. Scout camp has 40,000 participants from around the world. The royal couple made ​​today an unexpected visit to a camp-in-camp outside the jamboree. Guests from Brazil, Switzerland, Portugal and the United States suddenly had to know that the Swedish royal couple would visit them.

For a couple of hours wandering around the royal couple at the camp, had lunch with the participants and asked many questions about camp life. Queen Silvia was impressed at the Brazilian scouts with his flawless Portuguese, and there were many who took the opportunity to get pictures of themselves along with royalty. The king was interested in the camp organization, wanted to know where the guests came from and was surprised that the participants, who are bussed out of the jamboree, and even had their own food with them.
Participants were asked to either Facebook, twitter or texting about the incident before the royal couple had gone off again in the afternoon.

And why was the visit unexpected - it has been at the official calendar for a very long time?

The visit was outside the Jamboree

I live nearby the Jamboree. The royal couple made ​​a surprise guest at a "camp-in-camp" outside the world jamboree. The visit was not on the official program as the royal couple traveled to Kallinge in Blekinge 70 km from the jamboree in Kristianstad. As I understand it right the royal couple wanted to make an unplanned visit.

- "Wow. King. He is so cool," said one of the youths who dropped his chin when they received news that the King and Queen was coming.

The King and the Queen make a nice couple and work well together. One can only admire when their family appears together in official or social events, Queen Silvia is very professional and a great asset to monarchy in Sweden. I wish the King had at least had a more discreat private life and my heart hurts for all Silvia has been through with so much dignity. I hope they can still find fondness for each other. Anyway, they have done a great job raising Victoria.

You should not belive everything you read in the media, or here in the TRF about HRH King Carl Gustaf. Media who are against the monarchy in Sweden has written page after page down on alleged scandals that King Carl Gustv would have participated in. When others ask for proof there is nothing to display. Alleged images has never been presented. The king and queen saw in all cases, very happy here at the visit in Kristianstad.

Oh, so it has never been proven that the King had an affair with one pop singer from a group in the 80's?

I agree with you that the King and the Queen have always looked their part, either because of Noblesse Oblige or because they are really truly blessed and still love each other (which I hope).

No, there are journalists who claim to have seen pictures of one of Sweden's worst mafia bosses say they have. Journalists can not say that the pictures represent King. "There are similarities" are well about what was said. But no pictures have been shown so there is nothing more than allegations now. Mafia boss is now arrested for other crimes. Mafia boss said to have demanded to show the pictures for the Princess Madeleine ...

I do not think you should base those accusations on loose talk, but journalists must have the facts before they write.

Pop star, Camilla Hernemark, has used drugs so much that she developed manic-depressive illness. Furthermore, she was homeless and highly indebted. I have pretty good knowledge of mental illness and know that a manodepressov can say just about anything without feeling anything. If, like Camilla receive large sums money, accommodation and travel around the world to tell her story in TV programs, you can still raise serious questions about credibility. And it's hard for King to replicate on a mentally ill person's claims.

I do not find there is conclusive evidence against the king so that it will require a democratic society governed by law. Just because things are written about many times it will not be more true ...

Karisma, wasn't he released weeks ago after having to stay one night in jail because he allegedly 'attacked' a policeman over the phone, which couldn't be proved? An occasion which was convenient for the authorities to have the legal right to confiscate and search his computer.

Character assassination and the claim of mental illness should definitely be tactics from the dark pastin order to destroy a person's credibility, and I think you're far too smart to use them, Karisma.
Henemark (not Hernemak) has talked openly about her manic depression even before the stories in the King's biography (which she didn't write) surfaced.
As far as the countless TV interviews go, coming with a lot of money and luxury accomodations as you imply here, she has given exactly one only, in Germany, which is remarkable for someone who's in her situation and not affluent.
In this interview, I found her to be a charming, intelligent lady who was far from disturbed and very cautious in her remarks. Although I was actually very much prepared to dislike her, I must say that she handled the live interview in a dignified manner.
The King never denied his affair. Saying he did not because he would be so generous to not deny 'a mentally ill person's claims' is a wee bit delusional.
While the matter of the infamous pictures remains to be resolved, to be in denial is not the appropriate way to deal with other issues included in last year's revelations.

Meanwhile, in order to return to the current events, The King and Queen are staying on at the World Scout Jamboree which is also going to feature one day with a 'World Childhood Foundation' program.
Does anyone happen to know if there will be an occasion like a festive dinner as well?
