The king met also 14-year old Samir. He had wished through Foundation Min Stora Dag (My Big Day) to meet the king. Samir's family came to Sweden two years ago, but has been on the road for a long time. They left Afghanistan and traveled to Iran, where they lived for several years, then they came to Turkey and then to Greece before they came to Sweden.
Due to a severe accident, Samir had to undergo several operations. He is feeling better now, but must live with complications for a long time to come.
"My dream has come true. It was unbelievable to meet the King. He asked about me and my family and told me, among other things, that he has been King for forty years", said Samir after meeting with the King

Svensk Damtidning writes in this week's issue (paper version) that no one can believe how pretty and young queen Silvia still is.
Some things and secrets behind the youthfulness of the queen:
- the queen has the same waist size and figure than 37 years ago
- the queen dyes her hair very often, no one has ever seen her with roots showing
- the last time the queen was seen with glasses was in 1993. If she has been at an eye operation or she uses contact lenses, that is a well kept secret.
- her teeth are fine because of she prefers tea to coffee and has never been smoking
- her hearing has become worse, say those who have seen that she uses a hearing aid sometimes. She can hide it to her hair.
- she eats a lot of fish and vegetables
- earlier she had a gymnastics group with her friends at the Drottningholm Palace, not anymore, she swims a lot at the pool she got as 50th birthday gift.
- she gets training tips from Daniel
- Estelle, her smile and when she runs at the Palace corridors, keeps the queen young
- and the queen has inherited the good genes from her mother Alice, who had a thick hair and beautiful figure.

But not a mention to beauty trips to Brazil.

Well, Svensk Damtidning is a women's gossip magazine. Maybe they exaggerate a little.

Aftonbladet wrote about the king's and queen's visit to the Olympic Games in Sochi. The visit is short, only three days from 14th to 16th February. In Vancouver they were for 10 days. It may mean that they plan to be in New York when their second grandchild will be born. Annika Sönnerberg from the press department said that she doesn't know what the king and queen plan privately. These were the days they can travel to Sochi and follow the swedish athletes competing. The princess giving birth doesn't determine the official program of the royal couple.
