So Daniel is going to break his paternity leave to join the royal couple and Madeleine. Where exactly is Carl Philip? Didn't he say that he's going to step in for his big sister?

Lovely pictures, thank you MagMil!
Who or what was the official dinner dedicated to?

Her Majesty's gown is a bit too bright for my taste, while Madeleine's is decidedly understated. Still, both ladies looked beautiful. while the King and Prince Daniel looked very smart indeed.

I would imagine she will take an appropriate amount of time for maternity leave and only show up at major events like the Nobels. In this at least she should be given the same consideration as other Swedish women.

Normally the crown princesses have had a maternity leave of about three months. And Victoria is the heir, so she has a lot of pressure.

Prior to WWF's climate change event Earth Hour on Saturday, March 31 Prince Daniel and Prince Carl Philip are challenging each other on the climate. Both promise to reduce the indoor temperature at their home if the other does so too.

Aftonbladet has made a poll of the trust people have on the royal family.
Madeleine has the lowest rates, about a little over 30 per cent of the people has trust on her. The king has a little better numbers. About 70 per cent has trust on Victoria, and about 60 per cent on Daniel.
When Madeleine came home to Sweden and visited princess Estelle for the first time the court made it clear that it was also a working visit. Some called it a Madeleine campaign, but according to the survey it gave hardly any effect.
- It seems to be a slight trend upward, but nothing significant. So the campaign for Madeleine doesn´t seem to have been so effective, says Lauri Löfveblad, who compiled the survey.
The court has taken to the criticism, but according to information manager Bertil Ternert it was undeserved. Therefore, the court now works differently.
- Here in Sweden, she visited the sister organizations of Childhood. We at info department decided to put the meetings on the website to show even the business, precisely because of the questioning. We have not done so before.
But it does not seem to have had no visible effect in the numbers?
- They sound fair. But now we are more aware of putting the princess's work with the Childhood to the website than before, just to clarify that it is a full-time job.

It's quite expected that Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are the most trusted members of the royal family, but I am somewhat surprised the trust in King's abilities is so low; I have always been under the impression His Majesty is quite popular in Sweden.

As for Madeleine's activities, it may be a case of too little too late; the Palace should have made it clear from the start that Madeleine is working in the United States, not living a life of leisure. Now they are in damage control mode, which can actually cause even more damage.

How did Carl Philip did? He has recently had quite a few activities filling in Victoria's role during her absence, so perhaps that had a positive effect on his "rating".
