On the cover of the new DAM magazine is a picture of Queen Silvia in white shirt.
Is this pic new? And when and which place was it taken?

Just spotted King Carl Gustav and Queen Silvia on the BBC coverage of the Olympics. The BBC were pointing out Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley in the crowd and didn't notice/recognise/point out the royal guests sat in front of them.

When seeing this picture my first reaction was also a good laugh. However not everybody laughs at it, first of all the lady; honestly I am so pleased that we didn't see any picture of Daniel behaving in the same way, I dare not imagine the criticism about him, in case that had happened...

Silvia: Jag är lite döv nu | OS 2012 | Sportbladet | Aftonbladet
Translation>

Silvia: I'm a bit deaf now

Swedish royals on the image which amused the whole of Sweden
It is an image that has made a strong impression during the Olympics.
Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf screaming loudly and cheering handball team.
- It's good, that's the way it should be. It gives energy, says the king to Sportbladet.
- I'm a bit deaf now, says Queen Silvia.

King Carl XVI Gustaf has been knocked around and followed several Swedish practitioners during the Olympic Games in London.
At the Swedish handball men's matches have been the king made the biggest impression.
He was in the stands during rysarkvartsfinalen against Denmark and cheered loudly until the Swedish national team.
A picture taken during the game show when King screams, Queen Silvia recoils and a woman in front is for the ears.
- It's good, that's the way it should be. It gives energy, absolutely, says the king to Sportbladet.
Queen Silvia of the king's roar:
- Yes, I'm a bit deaf now. It's a bit of fun that, she was interviewed in front of the pulp magazines. We met her yesterday. Then she waved and smiled, she said.
"It's a secret"
The day after the Swedish handball men secured a place in the Olympic final, they met the king. He wants to be first not to reveal what they talked about.
- That I'm not talking about, it's a secret, I will not reveal anything. No, it is just nice, it's just nice. They just came, we had time to take a few bites together at the table, it was fun, says Carl XVI Gustaf.
But then he changed his mind.
- I told them to go onto the pitch and have fun. That's the case, said the king.
"Never give up"
Sweden defeated Hungary in the semifinals and a few hours later, it became clear there is France, which accounts for the resistance in the final.
- One should never give up, I think. They have had to struggle wins all the way, it was not the shortest or the easiest route. They have beaten underdog all the time and it's been an advantage. They can play relaxed and so on, says King.
- I am not a handball expert at all, they will grind on as they did in the past, it has gone well. There are fantastic players. It gets better every time.
How do you feel during the matches?
- It's the same for all of us. Of course it's very exciting.
Who will be the key player in the finals?
- There are no key players, all doing the best they can. I think they are doing the best they can be all of them. They've had a chance to play together and it's wonderful.
Vote for the finalists
Sportbladet started a contest in which the Swedish people had to send in suggestions for what the king cried out when the picture was taken. It came in 1300 draft and seven finalists were selected.
Join in and vote for them here !
The king has not yet revealed what he yelled when the picture was taken.

A few more pictures of the oldtimer King’s Rally with its ‘fun dressing’ in vintage clothes – this should be the first and only time ever to see Queen Silvia wearing bobbysocks:

Thanks Boris for the nice pics

Did Queen Silvia wear the hat by official events in 80th years? I remember on a white hat with red ribbon.

The king and the queen were not robbed, the cafe "Kaffetorpet" was robbed. The king owns the cafe, but it is not at the high security Solliden Palace area, just close to it.
