The Queen attended a ceremony where the ambassador of Japan, Yoshiki Watanabe delivered The order of the Rising Sun to Barbro Beck-Friis.
A very bad photo from the court Facebook

It's unbelievable that the Swedish Court continues to put pictures of such abysmal quality on their facebook page - they really have to do something about it. Don't they include any quality control in their PR matters anymore?

Actually, to be capable of producing such garbage with 21st century cameras can almost be considered an artistic achievement...

One would also think that with both the King and Carl Philip's interest in photography, they would notice that the photos are terrible and do something about it/make a suggestion as to how to improve them.

Thanks for the information - on which date was the ceremony?

This event wasn't mentioned in the royal calendar!

Thanks for the information and sorry I don't think on this event in Oslo last November! Once more an event without pics!

But it's pitty that we see last time pics only of few events. End of last year the court works better!
