Queen Silvia left home from Washington yesterday afternoon.

Live coverage in SVT. It starts soon.
Presskonferens: Kungahuset | SVT Play

Pregnancies are announced by a press release, no press conferences are held then. And the king has said that he will never abdicate.

Looks like it. The courtyard seems like an odd place to hold it though.

Nothing has happened yet. The press (and us!) are just waiting. We can see some courtiers in the palace moving around but that's it.

How long were those (Victoria and Madeleine) press releases made public before their press conferences? Have you seen Silvia?

It seems "too grand" for an engagment IMO

If it's not an engagement, what's left? An abdication?

And yes, I agree it seems a bit "too grand"

And today is Chris O'Neill's 40th birthday. They could have chosen another day to their engagement...

And if Victoria's didn't have this fuss the Carl-Philip's shouldn't have it either, right? If it's an abdication, I must say I didn't see it coming.

Marty, which link are you watching? You see Silvia, then Sofia, I see nobody...
If Sofia is there, then it's almost certainly an engagement. Maybe the delay has to do with Silvia trying to convince Carl-Philip to give up "Please, my baby son, you're still on time"
