Thank you so much, GrandDuchess, for posting those 'Random Pics' of Queen Silvia - it's so difficult to find 'historical' pics on the Internet, and if you have access to ANP (I envy you...), PLEASE do provide us with a few more if you can.
Some additional trivia info for the die-heart Queen Silvia fans:
Pic # 1 of your first posting shows Queen Silvia on the occasion of her (premature) 50th birthday celebration at Drottningholm Palace in sumer 1993; she's wearing a dress designed by Valentino which is backless to the waist apart from a see-through golden mesh framed by artificial flowers. One of her very best gowns, IMO.
Pic # 7 shows the Queen with the dowager Princess of Reuss, former 'ABBA' member Anni-Frid, who has devoted most of her time in recent years for environment protection charities which brought her in close contact with the Queen. These days, Frida is considered to be a close friend of Silvia.
Dear GrandDuchess, if you have any more such pics at your disposal, please share them with us... it would be highly appreciated. :) Thanks in advance.
