Queen Silvia has given an interview to Aftonbladet Plus (pay to read). At the interview she tells about the love for Estelle, Madeleine's 30th birthday party and how long she will continue to work.
Queen's greatest desire for the summer is to be visited by her grandchild at Solliden. "I really hope that I and the king get to meet little Estelle there," she says.

Thanks
I also love how she quotes Queen Louise: "Being sick and dying is quite impractical." " Thankfully, I and the king are still in good health and willingness" -says Queen Silvia

This year was the 75year celebration of "Konstnärernas Vänner". Didn't on 21st May 2012 the queen attend the celebration? During the last years ago she was guest in Waldemarsudde!

During the Rio+20 conference, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia attended the ‚Rio+Social’ event yesterday, a gathering of technology, social media, and global leaders. The United Nations Foundation partnered with Ericsson, EDP, Mashable and 92Y for this exchange about the impact of technology and social media on sustainability.
