She really did a wonderful job for her first visit. Certainly the duchess of Cambridge took a few years to get the mini skirts out of the royal wardrobe. She is Swedish, her husband obviously adores her, and is trying. They have a different perspective than many Anglos who concentrated on her getting her teeth fixed and tattoo removed. What does that say about our culture, be uncomfortable in your own skin and get surgery?

As mentioned in the opening post of this thread: this thread is for the current events of prince Carl-Philip and his wife. This thread is NOT for rehashing an ongoing discussion about the suitability of Sofia as a princess. This thread is NOT for discussing her past, this thread is NOT for discussing her tatoos. And this thread most certainly is NOT for attacking posters.

Those who enjoy online fighting are adviced to leave this forum.

Those who want to discuss Sofia's past or her suitability as a princess can do so in this thread, which was opened especially to channel that debate.

Several posts have been edited and deleted. Regard this post as a notification of that. If you have any questions about our moderation of these threads you can send a PM to any or all of the Swedish moderators.

Cp and Sofia have just completed their first month of duties as the Prince Couple. IMO they did a super job. What was your favourite moment? I loved the walk in Varmland with Princess Sofia in her rainwear! Looking forward to more pictures and stories.
Any news on how long the African Visit will be?

Yes, Carl Philip and Sofia attend at the events of the Opening of the Parliament. SVT shows the Opening of the Parliamentary session on TV at SVT2, and probably live in internet too, and it will be sent live at the website of the Parliament (Riksdagen) too. TV4, Expressen and Aftonbladet send on their Live-TV's possibly some arrivals.
We will see only on 15th September, how the events will be shown online.

I think it will be broadacast on SVT, the swedish tv. The couple will not be alone, of course, as it is an event attended by all the members of the royal family...

Madeleine will be at the opening of Riksdag too. It's probably to symbolize how the SRF is expanding: a new married in royal, a new prince of the blood and a prince or princess on the way who has impacted the line of succession.

Carl Philip and Sofia visit Dalarna county on 5th-6th October. They visit Borlänge, Säter, Falun and Älvdalen.

That is nice to read. I wondered when they would visit Alvdalen. Thanks Lady Finn for all your timely updates.

An update was just made to the court website:
Carl Philip and Sofia attend on Tuesday evening at Ericsson Globe at the big concert "Hela Sverige skramlar" organised because of the refugee crisis, revenues during the evening go to the UN refugee agency UNHCR. The concert is broadcasted live on SVT, TV3 Play, TV4 Play, Channel 5 Play, Aftonbladet TV, Expressen TV, Dagens Nyheter, Dagens Industri, Sydsvenska Dagbladet and Helsingborgs Dagblad and Sveriges Radio. It starts at 19.00 and lasts about four hours.
About the concert
http://helasverigeskramlar.se/

Sofia was added last week to the calendar to attend with Carl Philip at the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences' formal gathering on Friday 23rd October, it has been at Carl Philip's calendar for some weeks. It is a pity that Daniel can't attend like on the last years, because he has the tight co-operation with the Academy with his Prince Daniel Fellowship program, but the event clashes with Victoria's and Daniel's trip to Peru and Colombia.
However, since Sofia attends, perhaps she will get her Order of the Seraphim before the event, because the orders are used at the event.

The one thing I find silly with the court calendar is putting Sofia (and to the extent Carl Philip) on the event docket at the last minute. With the Royal Couple and the Crown Princess Couple you know what they're going to be doing at least a month in advance. Scheduling Carl Philip and Sofia this way makes it look like the court is trying to find them something to do. Filling in at the last minute when the original royal can't make it is one thing; this is ridiculous.

@Lady Finn - Sofia should have had the Seraphim sooner, at least a month after her marriage to Carl Philip. If she does have the Seraphim she should be wearing the order ribbon on Nicolas' christening (the one with the king's picture on it). I'm surprised she hasn't been given an order by this time.

Putting people on the calendar quite late isn't something that's constricted to CP and Sofia. It happens quite often with other members of the family.

The miniature portrait of the king is the unofficial "family order" of the swedish royal family. It is delivered to the women of the royal family. The portrait is attached to a bow in Seraphim light blue ribbon.
When princess Lilian had the Order of the Polar Star (she got the Order of the Seraphim only in 1995), she wore the miniature portrait of the king at the Seraphim light blue ribbon like all the women of the royal family. So you don't have to have the Order of the Seraphim to be able to wear the miniature portrait.

Princess Lilian's miniature portrait was smaller than queen Silvia's, Victoria's and Madeleine's.

The royal expert told during Carl Philip and Sofia's wedding broadcast, that the frames of the miniature portraits are recycled, so maybe Sofia gets Lilian's portrait.

It is totally natural that the calendar is updated sometimes with a short notice.

What's that long chain that Bertil has hanging down his chest?

I think it is this:

According to prince Bertil's page in Wikipedia he had
- Illis Quorum i guld av 18:e storleken med kedja från 1969 (Illis Quorum in gold of the 18th size with chain 1969)
https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prins_Bertil

Info about Ilis Quorum
https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illis_Quorum

At this page is a medal made to prince Bertil

Thanks for the info Lady Finn. I thought the ribbon and the sash are one in the same. Madeleine's and Lillian's portraits look the same, but different in size. The ribbons are different in design as well -Silvia and Victoria's ribbons form an "x" and Madeleine's and Lillian's look like a bar straight across. Do status and succession order affect the different size portraits and ribbon design?

The frames of the portraits of Madeleine and Lilian aren't similar. Madeleine has a little "crown" on the top of the frame. Madeleine's ribbon is more like a bow than Lilian's.

- It is important to be here tonight to show support, says the Princess Sophia when she arrives.
When asked what they have done to help the refugee crisis responds Carl Philip short:
- We have contributed, said Carl Philip.
