At the court article I posted the court writes that the king attends at COP21 on Monday and Tuesday. There was a meeting for the Heads of State, and prime minister Stefan Löfven attended with the king.

The King has attended UN's environmental conferences since the first one which happened to be held in Stockholm 1972. That marked a turning point in the development of international environmental politics. That is a lifelong involvement in environmental issues that is rarely discussed when the work of the King is talked about.

This is an important meeting for the king and something taken for granted to be at the place. The King is planning to be on the top climate summit in two days, says Margareta Thorgren.

No official events for Queen Silvia in Paris, today?

Silvia gave an interview in Düsseldorf where she talked about the pregnant ladies of the family, Victoria and Sofia, they should slow down and work and travel less because of their pregancies, stop going to places where there is a lot of people and bacteria and stay more at home.

To be honest, such a statement is really out of touch. Compared to other pregnant women, neither Victoria nor especially Sofia work much. A pregnancy is not an illness.

Sometimes I think the SRF members have to be protected from themselves because of the stupid comments they make in public.

Yes, I read that interview from Expressen and it made me laugh and almost cry at the same time. Queen Silvia is totally outside of the every day life when she is saying that Victoria and Sofia should rest more. And that they should not travel. And that Victoria stayed out of Global Child Forum because there were too much (400) people.
Good that Victoria went two days after that to Sweden International Horse Show, there was 15 000 people. And to the Christmas Fair, there was a lot of people.
Victoria and Sofia are both feeling fine. Victoria is working quite much, Sofia sometimes. But their work can't be compared to the common swedish pregnant women, who work 8 hours a day 5 days a week without help of assistants, drivers, secretaries, nannies and other staff. Those women have to go to buses with a lot of people and bacteria especially during the winter. I got angry on behalf of those women after I read queen Silvia's interview.
Yes, queen Silvia is a mother who wants the best for her children and in-laws, but perhaps she should remember that she is the queen of all swedish pregnant women too.

During the last times I have started hoping that queen Silvia would speak at these interviews only about the visit/award/cause why she is interviewed in the first place.
Queen Silvia Urges Pregnant Princesses Victoria and Sofia to 'Take It Easy' _ People.com

Ebba Kleberg von Sydow, who hosted many royal weddings and christenings on SVT, has written also a book of pregnancy. She writes at her blog that queen Silvia's plea and advice was really surprising. She doesn't agree with the queen.

At the Expressen link, which Duke of Marmalade posted, is a video of Expressen's Johan T Lindwall interviewing queen Silvia in Germany. Queen Silvia tells at the video all these things about plea to Victoria and Sofia to slow down, rest more, not to travel and not go to places where there is a lot of people. She tells here also the Estelle and popcorn story.
Nothing to do with Margareta Thorgen.
