Question Holiday

Does anyone know what Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling are doing instead of joining the other members of the Royal Family in Africa? Thanks, Gita.

GrandDuchess, thanks for the information about Christmas and holiday in Kenya.
I hope, we will see some official pictures as 2003 by there holiday in Thailand.
The crown princess was last year-change (2004/2005) in Kenya!

Thank you GrandDuchess for the summary.
Isn´t amazing, how they know all this stuff, but don´t care to get pics?! Which other Royal family could experience the same?? I would say no one. Even the Royal Family from little (population-wise) Norway is regularly found abroad.

Just like Gita I wonder, where Daniel & Victoria are and why they didn´t join them. One really can´t say, that the king and Daniel seem to spend a lot of time with each other.

Lena, I think Victoria has stay at Sweden when the king is out of the country.

Perhaps, Victoria is in Storlien or other places in Sweden.

but, yeah, i do hope we get pictures of the royal family, especially with Emma & Jonas.

Yes, that´s what I´ve thought too. But I´m unsure, since this law can be "stretched" quite a lot. Several times the whole Royal family was abroad. Also on holiday and also far away (e.g. in Mauritius in 1998)
Well, maybe the speaker of the parliament is abroad as well and can´t act as regent.
Personally I think this law is ridiculous. Not at least, because it can´t and isn´t always 100% working. The world became little in the past decades. You can go from A to Z easily. You just need to WANT it (Vickan+Kenya+last year )
Even more ridiculous it gets, when it´s seen as real duty. E.g. the danish court marked last december every single day in the calendar, when Frederik was regent

I might be wrong, but I guess Victoria and Daniel are in Sweden. In the beginning of February Daniel´s super-gym starts and I guess he is involved in realisation.

Or maybe they plan their engagement (highly unlikely of course)

Thank you, Yennie!

Many thanks from me, too, Yennie! The pictures are just great. The King and Queen look so relaxed. I'm sure they enjoyed their holiday.

Hi Johanna! Most things that we haven't had pictures from here on TRF I usually scan and post here. When I get home this weekend I can do a check, just in case, and see if there's any "new" pictures we haven't seen on TRF. But as far as I remeber, I haven't seen any pictures from the events you mentioned.

Today a headline on some tabloid / weekly magazine was 'The King exposed as a peeper'. I didn't buy the paper but to me it sounded like he was using his binoculars when they were on safari in Kenya

Tonight 20.30 on TV4 the Kalla Fakta programme will scrutinise the King's side-career as a businessman. He obviously owns different properties and a lot of stocks. It says his personal assets are worth 200 Million Kronor.

Was it in our "favourite" Hänt Extra? It sounds so much like one of their stories.
So the king has checked out the nacked lions and hyenas (?) OMG ...

Expressen also wrote, that the king made 15 million SEK+ last year. With 15 mio SEK one could arrange a nice wedding
