If you look at the whole series of pictures on ANP, it actually seems like everyone (minus the Queen) took off for a nice walk, noticed the photographers, paused for a moment looking not to happy to be photographed, then turned around and proceeded into the opposite direction.
I wonder why some bloggers (who is 'Megan'...?) post their interpretation but feel the need to make it appear like legitimate news.
I think it would be not only nice but almost a given for the Bernadottes to have new photos taken, relaxed but official, showing the whole to-be-extended 'new' family, including the daughter's fiancés.
It should be only natural, also considering the fact that the last official family pics were taken long ago, and in comparison with other royal families, they fall regrettably short in the department of providing the public with pics from photo sessions staged by themselves - IMO it's part of the job.
Not even releasing one pic of the recently engaged couple with the King & Queen is rather disappointing and thus helps the production of weird gossip.

She's the latest royal blogger on the Internet. She writes for the citizen journalism website The Examiner.com.

Johan T Lindwall writes in Expressen that king Carl Gustaf was at a boat trip yesterday with Jonas Bergström. He also writes that the King, Queen Silvia, princess Madeleine and Jonas Bergström returned with the boat from Öland to Stockholm.

Jonas is really handsome! Madeleine is such a lucky girl!!

Anyway, the king seems to like Jonas very much!!! Hope we'll be able to see similar pics one day with Daniel!
Victoria deserves that her father make efforts to integrate his future son in law in the family! Everyone in the family seem to like him except the king. I may be wrong but this is my feeling!

It's very nice to see photos of the king with his future son-in-law! They seem to get along quite well.

The King, the Queen and Crown Princess Victoria visit the north in connection to “Märkesåret 1808-1809”.
They arrived to Ratan:

It's great to see the royal couple and crown princess together on the trip in North Sweden. It's beautifull, too that the sun is shining! I hope the royal guests have fun during the two days in North Sweden.

Does anyone know the woman with the short red hair and glasses? She is receiving flowers in some of the photos, and looks familiar, but I can't seem to figure out who she is, exactly.

I think that the lady is Maud Olofsson, Minister for Enterprise and Energy and also the Deputy Prime Minister.

Thanks a lot to everybody for providing updates on this trip!
The visit is indeed part of the ‘Märkesaret’, the 2009 Bicentennial Swedish-Finnish celebrations marking the separation of Finland from Sweden.
In August 1809, the last war actions ever took place on Swedish soil, and part of the current trip is in memory of these occasions.
The Finnish President paid an official visit to Sweden in January, and next week the King and Queen will return the visit and go for two days to Finland for further Bicentennial events.

”En dubbel – nej tack!” | Jenny Alexandersson | Aftonbladet
Jenny Alexandersson talked with the royal family yesterday. Crown princess Victoria laughed that she doesn´t want double wedding with Madeleine. The King said that the weddings are going to have gunpowder and smoke. The Queen said that they are very happy about the weddings. Deputy prime minister Maud Olofsson said that the wedding is a huge marketing effort. She sees only benefits from two royal weddings in the same year. She also thinks that both Daniel and Jonas are men who want to support their wives.

Today, the royals have just arrived to Piteå with a boat.

A photo from the dinner yesterday evening, the royal family with governor Chris Heister:
Västerbottens Folkblad

Västerbottens Folkblad tells that the County Administrative Board, which had its own photographer wanted a picture of the royal couple and Crown Princess, together with the county governor Chris Heister.
For a while it seemed that the idea wouldn´t succeed, but a bit after 18.00 came the King, Queen and Crown Princess with the governor out and the photographer started to take the photo. When it was done, the king seemed to be in a hurry. He turned on the heel and started walking, but was hampered by the Crown Princess.
- Dad! Everyone haven´t got their pictures, she said, friendly but firmly.
The king obeyed orders and set up again for the photos.

Today the royal family visited also Tornio, Finland. Nice to have them at my home country. Pity though, I live about 800 kilometres to the south of Tornio ...
