A few more pictures from 1 November when the King, Queen and Crown Princess welcomed the delegates for the Nordic Council's Session in Stockholm for a luncheon at the Royal Palace. Here are a few very nice ones of Victoria, courtesy of Viennareport:

that's easy, just get him to say more silly remarks like he did with Brunei earlier this year.

Again, I wonder to what extent ETW was involved in that exchange ?

Gosh .... things must be real desperate. Seeing the parliament has pretty well taken all his powers away, how come it can't take a swipe at the final straw?

A more ominuous note ... this cabal wants to overthrow current society?

Quote:
... consists of some of Sweden’s best public relation consultants.
at least, some one is thinking.

Quote:
... the monarchy as a «historical remain which no longer is acceptable in a modern society.»
how come the monarchy is revered in Denmark and Norway?

Quote:
«It is completely wrong to inherit a position in a democracy, and besides there is just too much over the top royal nonsense.»
but at least then there is no patronage about selecting the 'President' (like its done in Germany). The pomp and circumstance of receiving ambassadors just gets done by the 'President' then.

Maybe their goat is to cut down on the civil service !
- No more soldiers on duty at all the castles and palaces.
- No more daily parades.
- No more cooks, chambermaids, butlers and lady's-in-wating, etc, etc, etc ...

Nope, I can´t. But I can see, that her royal higness, the crown princess of Sweden wore the same velvet-jacket, she wore on Monday...and her hair is still growing. Does she want to become an active part of a hippie-commune ("Christiania, I´m coming")?!

Queen Silvia looks really, super great at the luncheon. The purple scarf, the crisp cream/white suit (such a stark contrast!), the hair, the smile! I wish that Victoria could be a bit more of a style maven like her mom. The Queen consistently gets it right in a manner that is not too fad stylish nor too matronly or overly conservative.

Maybe this is why her hair is never down...because it's become too long for her to try and do something pretty with it...although there are plenty of styles other then a ponytail she could use with long hair!

A great tragedy has struck Sweden today as one of its biggest sports stars ever, wrestler Mikael Ljungberg, took his life yesterday at a clinic. He took double gold medals at both the European and World Championships in wrestling, one Olympic silver medal - and in 2000 in Sydney - the Olympic gold medal (from which I think we all remember the scenes of joy). In February 2001 he received the Seraphime Medal in the 12th size from The King, and the same summer he was chosen as the Victoria Scholarship and attended the birthday celebrations in Öland.

The Royal Court has said to the media that The King has sent a condolence telegram to Mikael Ljungberg's father, but they will not reveal what it says.

Here are some pictures in his memory:

You´re right GrandDuchess, it is a tragedy :/
May he rest in peace

The royal family sent a telegram to Michael Ljungbergs father.
It was signed: Carl Gustaf, Silvia, Victoria, Carl Philip & Madeleine

Swedish royals to sue magazines

heres a bit of interesting information from an Australian News website

Swedish royals to sue magazines
From correspondents in Stockholm
November 23, 2004



THE Swedish royal family will take legal action against two German publishers it accuses of slander for reporting, among other palace tidbits, that the king and queen might get divorced.

A court spokesman in Stockholm said a lawyer had been hired to review German magazine articles and draw up a plan for legal action - provoking protest from one magazine owner that a big Swedish lawsuit could force it to lay off employees.

"Certain German magazines, the so-called gossip press, have published very skewed stories, completely without basis, for quite some time," court spokesman Morgan Gerle said. "Some of the photo montages are beyond belief."

Last year, the Swedish royal family won a legal battle over reports claiming that Crown Princess Victoria, heir to the throne, wanted to marry a Greek prince. Two German magazines had to publish apologies.

The royal court would not speculate about amounts of money involved in any new lawsuit, but one of the German publishers now drawing its ire, magazine group Verlagsgruppe Klambt, said it would be sued for about 40 million Swedish crowns ($7.42 million). "Three hundred employees will be out on the street if we have to pay up," Klambt executive Rudiger Dienst told Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. Klambt's magazines have printed stories with headlines such as "Will a millionaire kiss away Silvia's tears?", citing rumours of a divorce between Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. The royal couple deny any such plans.

Well they reported fictious trash. And they also knew that Mr. Prinz (a well known attorney for prominent people) is investigating the newspapers. So if someone would dare to continue to write trash (s)he gets the bill. I think everybody could expect that as they really made clear that they will not tolerate that anymore. So my opinion: Now they newspapers should face their punishment...
