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.

Thank you for the link, MagMil!
That’s quite a high profile interview with CNN’s Deborah Feyerick – I’m glad that Queen Silvia receives this kind of international recognition for her charity work and her WCF organisation.
Queen Silvia has also joined the CNN initiative 'CNN Freedom Project - ending modern-day slavery'. More about the project here:
http://thecnnfreedomproject.blogs.cnn.com/

A few screenshots from the interview:

Thanks for the information and screenshots

Is the CNN-Interview taken on 8th May 2012 during her visit in New York?

On which date visit the Queen and Princess Madeleine Inwood-House in New York?

Thank you, MagMil – the first pic could be seen as a perfect illustration of the fact that the Rio+20 conference is generally regarded as a relative failure...

One more article about the occasion posted under the link in your post #649.
On the last day of Rio+20, Marcela Temer, young wife of Brazil’s Vice President, took the First Ladies who are attending to the exhibition ‘Amazonas – Cycle of Modernism’ at theCentro Cultural Banco do Brasil and was pictured with Queen Silvia:

An image like this is very rarely seen: During the week of the Rio+20 conference, the King and Queen visited the Criança Esperança community social project in Cantagalo, Rio de Janeiro together.

Here is an article about this visit to the social project in Rio, with a photo gallery at the bottom.
One of the kids who take part in the project is quoted as saying: "I found the King and Queen very cool, because they treated us with respect and education. They are equal to the Royals of the stories."

After Brazil and before proceeding to Norway, the King and Queen are currently taking their annual holiday in St. Tropez.
Picture gallery of them on their yacht from Isopix, unfortunately with this agency's very annoying watermark:

Thanks Boris
Nice to see some private pictures
Here is article and pic without watermarks Här kopplar kungaparet av | Nyheter | Aftonbladet
btw I can not believe that Queen Siliva is 68 years old

translation>
It connects the King and Queen of

The pictures from St. Tropez show that grandmother Silvia, 68, has a super body that can be displayed in a bikini.


Queen Silvia shows off her super body in nice bikini
The royal couple are taking this summer a much needed break from everyday duties.
Seen here is the king and queen on holiday on the French Riviera.
- As husband and wife are of course important for them to get away a little, says hovexperten Roger Lundgren


Far away from work, obligations, and a curious public, connects the royal couple of the two of you in a house Mirage in the village of St Tropez on the French Riviera.
- They live such lives watched and always has people around him. It is safe **** nice to be alone, says Roger Lundgren, hovexpert-chief of the Royal Magazine.
Exercise and Healthy Swimming
Of course, fits the royal couple to go out with the luxury boat brand J-Craft that king dubbed "Polaris".
It has been written about the Crown Princess's super Estelles body after birth. But the pictures from St. Tropez show that even Grandma Silvia, 68, has a super body that can be displayed in a bikini.
- They have a pool at Drottningholm, which I know the queen is swimming in every day if she can. She's a healthy person and have always been attractive, says Roger Lundgren, hovexpert-chief of the Royal Magazine.
Pesky paparazzi
Villa Mirage and French Riviera has long been the royal family's vacation paradise and it is something of an annual tradition to go there.
Shortly after World War II bought the Prince Bertil the beautiful beach villa which was his and Princess Lilian's summer residence.
When Prince Bertil died, took over the house of our King Carl Gustaf, 66.
- It has been difficult for the royal family of the house, because of all paparazis. They were considering selling, but seems to have decided to keep the house anyway. They know that they are photographed there, but seems to accept this.
Solliden is paradise
The fact that the Swedish summer so far has brought unusually heavy rain, perhaps contributing to the royal couple enjoy their Mediterranean holiday a little extra this year.
- Who does not love the French Riviera. It is a fantastic place and provides an opportunity to get away. But the royal family's real paradise is Solliden on Öland.
