The king opened the "Themed Gardens" competition at the Solliden Palace croquet field today.

Also queen Silvia was there, photos from Solliden Palace Facebook.

The King talked about how he committed and followed the work four architects have put on the new gardens.
- We have opened a new section here in the park at Solliden and it's the old, old croquet pitch as Gustav V, played croquet on which we have now done a Themed garden, he says.
A large part of the royal family is gathered to Solliden on these hot summer days. Princess Madeleine and Prince Nicolas, just over two weeks old, are feeling both good according to the royal couple.
Queen Silvia told:
- They are doing just fine. We are happy that we are all together now. Also the Crown Princess with her little family and both Princess Madeleine and the children. There are many of us, it is smooth and nice. Little Nicolas is doing very well. He has grown little. It's fun to see him every day and see how he develops.
All except Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, spend time together in the summer idyll this week.
The king and queen are delighted that prince Nicolas' cousin and sister take care of the new member of the royal family.
- Little Estelle and Leonore take care of him and will look after him. It's great to be at Solliden, said the queen, and the king continues:
- We spend time with the whole family and have a good time.

This is a happy, exciting time for CG and Silvia. Their only son has just married and their first grandson has been born.

All of their children are now settled and content!

The Award given to Öland Inhabitant of the Year was new this year, a specially designed white glass bowl signed by Prince Carl Philip. Very similar than the designs Carl Philip and Oscar Kylberg have made to Stelton.

The King has been in Falkenberg to see Prince Carl Philip race (he won his first race this weekend) and was perhaps on his way to Båstad which is a popular place. All the places are very close together.

Queen Silvia inaugurated the exhibition "Bland blommor, frukt och mycket mer" of Jill Bernadotte and Kerstin Carlsson Gullvert at the Ekerum Art Hall.

Queen Silvia talked with Expressen's Johan T Lindwall at the inauguration. She said that Crown Princess Victoria's official celebration in Borgholm was very nice, great artists and great atmosphere, happy and fine. A lovely evening which they all appreciated. The queen said that it is lovely now when the whole family is in Solliden, Öland is so beautiful now and they have a full house. It has been wonderful to become grandmother again. With prince Nicolas it is like always with the small children. One day he looks like his mum, one day like his father. The time goes at the sandbox mostly, the queen of course bakes sandcakes with the children. The children play well together. Leonore is a bit too small, but very social and wants to be with cousin Estelle, they have great time together. Prince Nicolas sleeps a lot.

The queen wanted also to highlight the exhibition which she has just inaugurated and her relative Jill Bernadotte, it is fantastic to see her creations. So beautiful and delicate. The queen has previously seen her art in the form of paintings, ceramics and women she has painted. So nice. Queen Silvia also praised the other artist, Kerstin Carlsson Gullvert. Queen Silvia has also herself painted a long time ago, it was lovely. It gives a lot of peace and quiet. She thinks that maybe she should start over again?
Queen Silvia also pointed out that Jill and Bertil Bernadotte mean a lot to them and it is great to have them in the family. The king and queen visit Bertil and Jill in France several times a year.
