The last State Visit from Sweden was in 1976,shortly after the King married Silvia Sommerlath,a festive occasion.The Godson of Queen Juliana presented his bride to her.I recall marvellous pictures from the Banquet at the Royal Palace,Amsterdam.

The State Visit in this year,2009:The Juliana Year,isn't a coincident,and it is a week ahead of the birthdays of HM and the late Queen.

the pictures are marvellous, it must have been very exciting for silvia as it was her first state visit! i wonder how she feels coming back to the netherlands after so much time had passed.

woooooooooow ! great news , cant wait to see the glamour princesses , Maxima, Victoria , and Madeleine !
im over the moon to heard such news !!

Marengo 02-03-2009 06:47 AM

It is not very likely that princess Madelaine or even crown princess Victoria will attend, the Swedish royal website only mentions the king and queen (as does the Dutch one). Crown Princess Victoria did escort her parents to Belgium though, so who knows...

Lumutqueen 02-03-2009 07:58 AM

I would love for Victoria and Madeline or even just Madeline and Carl-Philip to go with the queen and king. Would be an exciting trip :D

This really looks like an exausting agenda. I hope they have time to put on some lovely dresses with some rocks to boot!!

Marengo 03-25-2009 06:54 PM

I have faith that queen Silvia can pull it off. The first time that we might get a grand gala (with tiaras) at a return banquet in The Netherlands since Beatrix' reign started. Though if the Dutch court will politely ask the Swedish one not to use tiaras the second day as they think it is harmful for their image or whatever, I suppose the Swedes will don't mind that either.

Yesterday afternoon the royal Swedish couple had press-meeting with journalist from Netherlands - do you find article/pics in newspaper/magazine in Netherland?

And in the evening they was attend from Ambassadör H.E. Mr. Jan Edward Craanen in Stockholm!

I don't think so Marengo. You usually adapt to the country you visit. So I don't think tiaras for two nights in a row and I am one of those people who does not mind one bit if there arent any tiaras for both nights ;) (I think gala can be too much when it's overdone)
