Nice to hear this. It would've been nice for Estelle to attend too particularly if there may be other younger royals there (yes, I know she's slightly younger than the other heirs, but it would still be nice chance for a European heir "meet up") - but Victoria going is enough for me to be satisfied with!

Great news! Who knows if Estelle is going or not, I don't think the Swedish court announces the King's grandkids names on the agenda. It would be nice if Victoria took Estelle.


I'm still hoping Frederik and Felipe will attend. I think Frederik and Mary will for sure. Not sure about Felipe and Letizia, never is certain with them, especially now that they are the King and Queen of Spain.

3? I thought only Felipe and Fred are in question. The other 3 godparents are Harald, Martha Louise and her maternal grandmother. I would think they were a given.

I'd be surprised if the Danish royals didn't attend. The three Scandinavian royal families are so close to each other.

Felipe we will have to see. Since he missed the baptism, it would be nice for him to make it to her confirmation at least.

The Swedish and Norweigan royal families often holiday together and attend events. Estelle knows the Norweigan royal kids quite well.

Considering how close her parents are to Fred and Mary, she likely knows the Danish kids quite well too.

I doubt Felipe will bring his daughters if he comes, and there isn't likely to be any other heirs there.

As of press time, unlike the Swedish Royal Family official website, both Spanish and Danish official website has yet to confirm.


Likewise, from the Swedish Royal Family official website, only Crown Princess Victoria is confirmed to attend.

When asked, the Danish Royal Court said (rather rudely if I am being honest) to check their calendar. The court updates the calendar 2 weeks at a time so we will have to check in a few days to see if it gets added.

Good grief!
I guess that is likely.

Keep Durek away from QMII! If she is in a disapproving mood, she'll cut him in half with a single remark!

They have lunched with him.

And should a horned gentleman suddenly have appeared, offering me the opportunity to be present and able to read minds, I would have signed the contract and ignored the small text on the back.

I think that all members on the Scandinavian Royal Houses are perfectly capable of holding a polite and normal conversation with ML's shaman. We all would be. It is not hard to stick to polite and general topics and avoid the controversial ones.
So if ML brings her partner, it will not ruin the day/event. They are all grown-up and know to act accordingly.

And no one should be excluded from attending the Confirmation ceremony (After all, this is the rite of confirming Christian maturity).

Rude as in they phrased their reply rudely or because they referred to the calendar?

That day is a mere two days before the beginning of the (presumed) Trump state visit. There has been nothing in the news about it here in the States.

Exactly. Whilst I do not agree with Durek's shamanism or his compatibility with Martha Louise, I highly doubt this would effect his attendance. For royal standards, Mette-Marit was an unconventional bride, so I'm sure the Norwegian RF can converse with Durek politely and civilly.

You really have a point! I like how you put it that way. Seems as though the Norweigian RF is very much accepting in that regard.

I really want to see King Felipe, Letizia, Leonor and Sofia but I doubt it will. Sad.

You're welcome!

Yes! And that was included in the calculation in post 45, where I wrote that a bunad costs between $2,000-10,000.

My brother-in-law who is into ancestral history found a journal from the early 1700's of a couple of male relatives who went to market in Göteborg (Gothenburg) IIRC. They were not feeling too secure, so they brought a pistol with them. Even today, many stretches in western Sweden look exactly like the picture.

In DK it was part-time pirates who were a problem. Well into the 1700's actually.
Thanks!

It was quite common, actually!
And the modern way of doing it, i.e. fool people out of their cars for so robbing them, is still a big problem in several countries. Been many cases of it during the summer periods here in Scandinavia as well, where it's carried out by gangs from Eastern Europe. - And (*unsurprisingly*) with ''Western Sweden'' as their main target.

BTW: We had a problem with pirates here too! Especially from the late 1500s and throughout almost the entire 17th century, when they were quite active outside the coast of Northern Norway.

The only thing we know since my last post (apart from the news from the Swedes) is that the court has invited two representants from The Norwegian Sámi Parliament (I.e. The President, Aili Keskitalo and The Plenary leader, Tom Sottinen) to attend both the service and the subsequent luncheon.
And both have of course thanked yes.

But it is August 15th already, so not many days until we get the third press-release from the court now (the first one BTW came in mid-January, while the second one came in early July).

Another thing to mention is that *The US state visit to DK* would most likely prevent QMII (who is the godmother of Ingrid's father) from attending, such as her mother Queen Ingrid attended the confirmation of her godson's son in 1988 (i.e. Haakon).

So thank you very much, Donald!

I also see that she has an engagement the evening before, which makes me pretty sure she won't attend.

Yes, that's QMII for you! LOL.

However, his biggest challenge will be the old-schooled and short-tempered Princess Astrid, who makes Margrethe look like a lightweighter by comparison. - And who will most likely eat him alive!
But she will, of course, not do it in public. No, she'll wait to she has him on her own, and he will probably be followed by a good dessert. LOL.

And if we should be a bit serious here: The King has told in interviews (the last time was around her 85th Birthday in 2017) that she still yells at him, because for her, he will always be the little brother! And she's not afraid to take on The Crown Prince either (according to himself).
BTW: The King told a funny story in his speech on her 80th Birthday-dinner in 2012 about some courtiers who had implied to him that she seemed a bit irritated with them.
No, he had said, ''she can't have been that, because then we had noticed it.'' LOL.

Perhaps the good Durek will at some point find himself between QMII and Princess Astrid?
They will look at him, then at each other, and a few minutes later Durek will look for the exit! Wishing his ancestral spirits had warned him...





No doubt North African pirates. - (Even though Caribbean based pirates on at least one occasion raided a manor as far away as Scotland around 1680 IIRC.)
They were a true menace and raided as far north as Iceland. Even isolated English fishing villages were raided as late as the latter half of the 1600's.
The last North African pirate coastal raid in Europe took place in southern France as late as around 1830. A number of women were abducted for the slave markets.
It's perhaps no coincidence France invaded Algeria in the 1830's.
Those who are familiar with the Marine Corps Hymn, will remember the reference to a US expedition force attacking Tripoli in retaliation for North African pirate attacks.
The North African pirates even send ambassadors as far away as to Scandinavia in the mid 1600's!
Trying to extort as much as possible from the Northern European countries as possible - knowing perfectly well how expensive it would be to muster a fleet and send it to raid North African ports.
