They were said that there was no tables for them at a restaurant, because it was booked for a wedding. The owner didn´t recognize them.
So the king and the queen ate at a pizzeria.

According to Spiegel online, Daniel Westling was with the Kings:

Its not unusal the press still referring to him as Daniel Westling. The same happens to Letizia in Spain, the media still calls her Letizia Ortiz on many occasions, same does especially the Aussie press with Mary Donaldsen.

Anyway, I thought it was strange too. Why would Daniel travel with his in-laws on that occasion? On the other hand, the lady must know who stood in front of her when recalling the scene.

I don't know, after all she haven't recognized the King & Queen, it could have easily been a bodyguard or a friend. Daniel was in Stockholm on Thursday, and I doubt he took a flight to catch a nice lunch with in-laws in Heidelberg.

I haven't heard of either Daniel or Carl Philip being there too. All I heard was what LadyFinn already wrote, plus that she recommended a few other restaurants to them so they could get something decent to eat somewhere else.

I don't think this incident was bad at all. Why should she have recognized them? Not everyone is interested in royals. And even if she would have recognized them what should she have done? Throw other guests out of the restaurant? Because it wouldn't have been just two people (two people can always be squeezed in somewhere) but a whole group that was there with Silvia and Carl Gustaf. At least that's what I've heard.

And I also think there's no need for the restaurant to send a written apology to the swedish palace (I heard they want to do it). They could write that they just didn't recognize them but really didn't have place at that time but will be very happy if the king and the queen would come by again if they are around somewhere again. An explanation of the situation is okay, an apology is not nessecary IMO.

I find the comment from this restaurant hostess quite ridiculous: " I don´t have the time to read yellow-press all day and therefore I didn´t recognize the Queen..."
My God this poor woman is really to be felt sorry for: Working from morning to night hating royals and being obviously jealous with and despise women allday.) at the hairdresser reading yellow-press. I´m almost sure she recognized them but didn´t want to admit that she hates royals and yellow-press readers.
Some comments on TV are on top of it all quite malicious: Famous people always want to stay incognito but in case they are not recognzided they are insulted - as far as I know, in this case Silvia didn´t tell who she is and therefore no reason to blame her!

I already asked another user in another thread, but that doesn't stop me from asking you a very similar question: What's the reason for you for being so sure with what you say? Do you kno the restaurant owner? Or her husband? Or anyone of her friends, relatives, employees? Because why else could you make such a statement of whom she really knows, whom and what she really hates and why she is jealous of whom and what? What you're doing is defaming. And that's not a nice thing to do.

It always makes me angry, when I read comments like this where someone is bold or arrogant enough to hint that he/she definitely knows what's going on in the heads of people they absolutely don't know. The restaurant owner is right when she says she doesn't have time to read yellow press, because she works in a very busy job and has very much responibilities with it. And at the hairdresser, doctors, etc there are not just yellow press magazines, but also serious magazines. Maybe those is more to her liking. So it is absolutely possible that she really didn't know them.

Not everyone is interested in them. And even if someone is, that doesn't mean they recognize everyone from that bunch. Because I personally wouldn't recognize the royals from Luxemburg or Liechtenstein if they came along my way. And a whole lot of the dutch and Belgium royals, too. Not to mention our german "royals". They could hit me with a tree and I wouldn't know that it's one of those royals that brought me into hospital. On the other hand I would perfectly well know if a scandinavian, british or monegasque royal did that to me.

So please stop assuming the restaurant owner did what she did, because she hates royals or is jealous of someone/something or frustrated because of her job. You simply don't know that!!!

I agree with you KitKat2006. I have followed the royals for a long time, and I wouldn´t recognize all of them, if they would pop up to my door.
And many of my friends, who aren´t interested in royals, wouldn´t recognize king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia, if they would see them in "private clothes". Maybe if they would see a photo of them with tiaras, evening gowns and sashes, they would recognize them.
It is not any way wrong not to recognize royals. Everyone has their own hobbys - mine and many others one hobby is to follow royals.
