Why are you so sure that the press would have been invited? I think it´s ok, that she expresses her feelings, instead of "standing" the party, but feeling bad.
It would be much worse, if she wouldn´t want the party, because she doesn´t get along with her family.
But I understand, that you´re disappointed. Maybe we would have gotten pictures from the outside of the hotel.

Yes, this is something I also wonder about. Princess Margaretha and princess Birgitta have very strange marriages (if we can still call it "marriage"). I always feel so sad for them. For some reasons they don´t want to get divorced, but on the other hand they can´t move on...

Why would having a male heir to the throne make it "not boring"? Actually, I think that they're "boring" because it means that they're not as scandalous as their fellow royals around Europe.

I think concerning scandals they don´t differ much from the other european Royals (well, maybe Great Britain excluded...and Monaco..but that´s no kingdom). The swedish RF is just on a boring stage now. Just think of the times when all the crown princes weren´t married. Of course when a female Royal watcher had a crush on a crown prince (or the idea of being crown princess and later queen) she has followed his life. But on the whole they (and their siblings) all weren´t more interesting or boring than the swedish Royal "children" today. I´m sure as soon as they start to marry and to get children, there more ppl get interested.

If carl was the crown prince then his love life would be under speculation and thta is always interesting. Sorry, but a girl's love life is not that interesting. but it is sad cuz Carl really is not that interesting anyways

I totally disagree with you. The Swedish Royal Family is one of the least scandalous Royal Houses (generally I think all the three Scandinavian Royal Houses are less scandalous) - maybe you think that's what's boring. I think the Swedish Royal Family sets a good example when it comes to a lot of things, not the least how good friends they all are with each other. Personally, I wouldn't mind a bit more pomp and circumstance every now and then, but we can't have it all...Many of the European Royal Families has had engagements, weddings and baptisms these past years - which means there's been a lot of big celebrations in those countries. But when it goes back to normal, I would say that most Royal Families live their daily lives quite similarly to each other.

I couldn't disagree with you more. I think all royals love lives are interesting, not matter if they're heir or spare - male of female . And I agree with Lena, before Europe's Crown Princes met their wife’s, they were not any more interesting than the Swedish royal children are today. There were rather some small crisis situations, and many were worried for their futures. Of course now they all have lovely wife’s and almost all of them little families of their own - and have all matured and taken on their roles in an excellent way.

What do you mean "a girl's love life is not that interesting"? Does this mean that in the future - you will have no interest for the love lives of Princess Elisabeth of Belgium (future Queen of Belgium), Princess Catharina-Amalia (future Queen of the Netherlands) or Princess Ingrid Alexandra (future Queen of Norway)?

So a week (actually even 12 days...) off for Victoria. Could this mean, that she´s spending her time with Daniel on a hot and sunny place, with many beaches right now
Wonder how the muscleman looks in bathing shorts

Very well, said. They certainly do. And no, they are not boring.

Pictures from earlier today when the King, Queen and Crown Princess welcomed the delegates for the Nordic Council's Session in Stockholm this week for a luncheon at the Royal Palace:

Thank you for the new pictures, GrandDuchess.
Wow, what a big rose. Even though the outfits of the queen and the crown princess are similar, the queen is again a bit more stylish.

A very nice suit on Victoria (even if it is in black -- again). The cut and fit is very nice on Victoria and that always scores fashion points.

... But am I the only one who has an overwhelming urge to run up to Victoria wielding a pair of scissors to lop off that pony tail of hers? How smart and professional (and a chnage of pace!) would it have been if Victoria had pulled her hair back in a low bun for this occasion?

Poll idea: What would it take on this earth for Victoria to stop wearing those annoying, sporty ponytails to professional events? Pigs flying? Flowers blooming up through 6 inches of snow and ice? Me giving up chocolate?

Geezzz.. I did not know my comments would stir up alot. I just don't care about a girls love life I guess since I am a girl. I guess I just like the idea of a prince dating, searching, and finding his Cinderella. And I totally don't mean that a RF has to be scandalous to be interesting. No way. I hate scandals esp. the ones in the British RF. It is just that the Swedish RF is so hum-drum. I guess some pomp and circumstance woudl do alot of good. WHen is the Noble Peace Awards coming on. Will it be on the internet?
