Here is a traslation:

On a carved sofa in Queen Silvia's office is an embroidered pillow with the text "It Is not Easy Being Queen:" The picture is taken from the book "The Queen" which was published in 2001, but is just as relevant today as it was ten years ago. 2011 has been the queen's perhaps longest years on the throne

But now December 22 - the long year's shortest day - at an end, and we go again towards a brighter future. So even Queen Silvia, who on his 68th birthday can look forward to being grandma next year. In the background, she has also taken the opportunity this autumn become the queen who sat at the throne of Sweden - over 35 years.

Saw her with binoculars
The road began one August evening at the Olympic Games in Munich 1972nd

Although he did not see her through a camera, but through a telescope of two feet away, King Carl Gustaf described the first sight of Silvia as it just said "click".
I would not let presumptuous, but it felt as if fate had decreed that there would be two of us, says Queen of the book "The Queen".

After the meeting in Munich, met the couple in secret for several years, before their love finally became official and the Swedish people got acquainted with the German-Brazilian beauty. Then said it just clicks again.

- The reactions were strong. Silvia was very beautiful and had an incredible charisma. All were delighted, she seduced the entire Swedish population, says the historian Herman Lindqvist.

But after the grand wedding, which Herman Lindqvist describes as the largest official in the history of Sweden, and the lazy summer of 1976 with a honeymoon to Hawaii and East Africa, come the fall and acid turned into a much harsher life.

Silvia, who was the first woman on non royal or noble birth to marry into the Swedish court in 400 years, was received with the elbow in the traditionalist and the male-dominated Swedish court.

They asked almost never the queen of anything. It was decided over the heads of her, and it did not take the view that I think it would take a wife and a queen. It was not easy, says överhovmästarinna Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister in TV4 documentary "The Family Bernadotte" in 2010.

- That was it. It was the old uncles, who was appointed by the former King Gustaf VI Adolf, who decided. Over the years there have been some internal criticism of Silvia, who would constantly change things up and were perceived as too definite, says historian Herman Lindqvist.

But through hard work won Silvia to end their belackares respect, and when Herman Lindqvist looks back on the queen's 35 years on the throne, it is above all her efforts for the Swedish monarchy, he remembers.

- The king, who was the youngest monarch in Europe and also sat unmarried on the throne for several years, had a certain playboy stamp, so when Silvia came and took care of him created positive publicity and it was neat and tidy at the castle, says Herman Lindqvist.

Concern for the hellish years of defiance, positive events are waiting behind the corner of the historic Queen.

Today she celebrates her birthday with family at Drottningholm.

And can also look forward to being a grandmother.

Yesterday Queen Silvia on her birthday gave interview for

Here is video footage from that interview and article
http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article14124894.ab

google translation in English


"Will my greatest moment"

More than 2500 of Aftonbladet's readers sent a birthday greeting to Silvia. "I want to thank you very much for all the support and caring from everyone who has sent a greeting to me. It warms me very much. So I really want to thank from my heart, "said the Queen. That soon became a grandmother, she says: "It is extremely scary."

Silvia told Aftonbladet: nerve-racking to be grandma
DROTTNINGHOLM. She is the Swedish queen, who sat at the throne.
In an exclusive interview with Aftonbladet says Silvia now about the time of marriage, the cohesion of the royal family - and longing for grandchildren.
- I know it will be my greatest moment, she says.
After careful screening, we were escorted into the castle area of ​​several Security Service Guards.
Yesterday celebrated Silvia's 68th birthday along with the rest of the royal family. For the interview with Aftonbladet, she came directly from a concert in the Royal Chapel.
How does it feel to soon become a grandmother?
- There is something very special. It's something you yearn for, and we welcome very much. One longs and waiting. And I know it will be my greatest moment. They usually just say that there is life after law. And we are very pleased, both the King and me.
Interest huge
The court has previously gone out with the news that Victoria's and Daniel's children estimated to be born in March. But already the huge media interest and once it comes time expected to journalists and photographers from around the world.
- I hope all goes well and that Victoria and Daniel will get peace and quiet to be with this baby and be a small family. And that next year will be a happy year for us all, says Silvia.
How does the queen that she is like my grandmother?
- It is very scary, I must say. Walking on tiptoe, I think. Now I have asked a few friends who have become grandmothers how it is and so on. But it is hard to describe.
King on the throne
In early autumn, became Queen Silvia history. No Swedish Queen has sat on the throne as long as she is.
The old record was held by Queen Sofia. She was queen for thirty-five years, two months and twenty days. But the performance Silvia passed in September this year.
What is the queen of all the years as queen?
- It's actually the day before yesterday. It is many years and many happy years. So I must say that I have always been very happy in Sweden and felt the Swedish people's support.
- It has been my most important years here, of course. And I'm glad I have such a nice family. We have a nice cohesion and beautiful children. They are good also. They are nice and natural. And yes, as a parent, I think they are very, very nice, but I think they are too.
How to celebrate the Queen's birthday?
- Now part of the family. Prince Daniel is in Ockelbo but everyone else is here so we will have a nice dinner. Prince Princess Christina and Tord Magnusson will also and some of the children. The rest of the family, on the 25th
What has become of gifts?
- There were many soft gifts. Comfortable and warm.
Is not it boring?
- No, it is not. They choose their course with great care. You choose to delight one person and I know that everyone has made an effort very much. But the greatest gift is of course the children are here. That Princess Madeleine is here and that Prince Carl Philip is here. It is the finest, when we are as a family. I also hope that you all have a peaceful Christmas with family and loved ones. And maybe some snow.

It´s odd: at the video of Aftonbladet the queen says that the crown princess and prince Daniel are in Ockelbo, but Aftonbladet has put in the text, that only Daniel was in Ockelbo...

They removed names of CP Victoria and Prince Daniel,because previously they was on the attending list.
Victoria and Daniel were never listed to attend the concert on the 23th, only at the Royal Academy on 20th. Madeleine and Carl Philip were added to attend on 23th a few days ago.

It is quite easy to look relaxed for five minutes at some photos, but is it the real situation, no one of us knows the truth.

apparently the King was playing on his phone during the church service for the Danish Queen, I've always though it bad manners to have a phone in church

IMO in his defense I think that was before to start the service, just after they arrive, you can see on this video from 7:09 - 7:30, Queen Silvia and Princess Banedikte have eyes point on his phone and also you can see Island's First Lady with her phone
Maybe they were turning the phones on silent
