Thanks a lot for posting this link, ursulajohanna.
When it comes to Queen Silvia, the official website kungahuset.se has been noticeably lazy in covering her everyday engagements recently... in contrast to the coverage about other members of the Swedish royal family.

Today the king and queen along with Victoria and Daniel had lunch with Jimmy Åkesson, leader of the Sverigedemokraterna political party. This was somewhat controversial since mr Åkesson's party is considered right-wing extremist.

However, it is tradition that the royal couple invite each leader of the political parties represented in the Swedish parliament. I think they invited Åkesson out of respect for democracy, since he was elected. They are also obliged to be politically neutral.

It is interesting, though, to see the photo released by the court. They all look very solemn, and I think this is a subtle statement. Compare this to the lunch held earlier this year for Håkan Juholt, leader of the Social democratic party. Much happier faces there.

Åkesson:

Juholt:

Since we only have pictures of them leaving, I assume it was not an official duty. They were there only as "private citizens", wathever that means for royals..., Am I right?

I'm curious. Is CP Victoria required to be in Sweden when her parents are out of the country on vacation?

In the summer the whole royal family was in Monaco and France for 3-4 days at the wedding of prince Albert and right after that at the wedding of Patrick Sommerlath.

I just read this article
After Sunday, Queen Silvia will be the longest Swedish queen who has served as Queen Consort
She crushes record of Queen Sofia - 35 years, 6th months and 16 days

Queen Silvia has given an interview to magazine Land about to be a grandmother.
http://lrfmedia.se/front_image.aspx?LAN%7C254%7C318

Finnish Iltalehti writes about the interview:
Silvia ohjeistaa Victoriaa: Rauhoitu! | Viihde | Iltalehti.fi
I read from the paper version of Iltalehti about the queen´s interview. The queen has advised Victoria that she should give herself more time and take it easy now when she is further on her pregnancy. Silvia thinks that to be a grandmother is wonderful. It is said that having grandchildren is one of the most precious joys in the world and both she and the king are really looking forward to it.
Silvia hopes that she can be a baby-sitter, but of course that is mainly the parents´ thing. The grandparents shouldn´t get involved about how the child is raised... But maybe a little.
Silvia pities also the lack of time when her children were small. When Victoria was born she was already a queen and the time she could spend with her daughter was many times too short. She says that her mother Alice brightened up the days of Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine, because she was living at the Palace. And now when Silvia is going to be a grandmother, her duties as the queen make her busy, and she doesn´t have as much time to her grandchild as Alice could give to her children.

That is so sweet how she talks about being a grandmother! Though it is sad that she did not have a lot of time to be with her children.
