That's incorrect. Marie Fredriksson (the lead singer) is not related to Anni-Frid Lyngstad. She was born in 1958 and Anni-Frid was 13 then. While it's not impossible to bear a child at 13, it's highly unlikely.

BTW, a little fun fact about Anni-Frid. She's married to a German prince, so she's technically a royal! Her title is Her Serene Highness, Princess Anni-Frid Synni Reuss, Countess of Plauen.

She is a widow now but presumably kept the royal title.

She did, yes. Widows can keep their title/styles until they remarry.

An ABBA member has a royal title, that's something I didn't know.

Everyone looked happy except Letizia. And you should see the look on her face when Roxette sang. I think she should socialize more.
Thanks much for the gallery, LadyFinn!

A video made after the concert, Mark Levengood interviewed the artists, you can also see some shots of the royals at the reception:

I have a favor to ask to our Swedish speaking posters. During the concert on the eve of the wedding the moderator made some funny remarks about the Danish and Norwegian Crown Prince couples. He said something about all four of them that made everyone laugh. I am desperate to know what the joke was all about. Could anyone capable of Swedish please tell more about it? Thank you :-)

He told that the swedish, norwegian and danish royals meet often and then he suggested that the younger Scandinavian royals should start up their own band – Frederik would play the drums and Haakon the electric guitar. Mette-Marit, of course, would sing lead vocals, and Mary whose roots are roots in Australia could play the didgeridoo.

I do not know for sure but I thought that Letizia did not speak English at first. Maybe the language barrier would be a problem at such concerts speaking Danish and some English.

I personally think that she has issues. It is sad.

On a high note, I was happy to see the Spanish Royal Family well represented.

For goodness' sake, can't she just be tired? She flew to S. Africa couple of days before and back, and she held official duties before flying again to Sweden. I mean, even in the most comfortable circumstances a 12-hour flight to S. Africa and back is tiring.

Well I don't know if she was tired or not, but even on the news they remarked that she was not having a good time on the concert.

Leitizia looked prettier at the concert than she did at the wedding. She is beyond the word thin and she needs all the color she can get and the red gown was better than the pale pink one. I don't know if she is having a good time or what. She is unhealty looking. No longer "thin", but wraith like. New broadcasts may be biased, but they didn't change her picture.
