Mad dash? Well, I dont know when the event in Philly is, but isnt there pretty good connection with NY from Philly? 17.20 EST there is a SAS-plane going from Newark destination Stockholm, i know, i traveled with it this february. She then arrives tomorrow at 07.40 with a big jetlag, but if she is better than me when it comes to sleeping in airplanes(i didnt sleep at all on my returntrip and was wery groggy on arrival) she sleeps during the entire flight or takes a nap when she returns home. She then rides with the family either with a gigantic jetlag or not.

If i go to Skansen i will not wave to the camera:rofl:

Well, it might not be exactly a mad dash, but there is a chance she could be cutting it fine to get to Stockholm, then Skansen, by the evening. She would have to fly/drive to New York, then get a connecting flight to Stockholm (some of the flights I saw on SAS went through Oslo, or Chicago and Oslo, but there was also two direct from Newark). If one of these connections is running late, everything else is thrown back.

But, the flights schedueled to arrive at Arlada from Newark at 06:55, 07:15 and then one at 07:35 from Chicago.

It will be good to see the family all together I think.

dazzling 06-06-2011 04:54 AM

Well, Mandeleine IMO should be there along with the family, after all she is part of the royal family and at such occasions with no excuse or discussion should a member not attend, maybe I am old fashioned when it comes to such events where I think the whole family must attend.

I think it's planned that she appears at 18.30 at Skansen together with the rest of the family.

The announcement was that she will attend the celebration at Skansen, Stockholm, tonight. That has not started yet. The rest of the family have other engagements during the day.
