Video of Queen Silvia's interview at Aftonbladet
Queen Silvia said to Aftonbladet that it is first time that they have come so far north in Norway, and she thinks that it is extremely beautiful.
They have seen so much. They have seen art, met children and young people, been to university and listened to the scientists. There's so much going on up here.
During the week, the king and queen lived aboard the Norwegian royal ship along with King Harald and Queen Sonja.
And Silvia praises the Norwegian royal couple: We are very good friends and I admire both the king and queen so very much. Queen Sonja's so enthusiastic and interested in the arts, which we had access to. We are very close to them so we feel well looked after.
Yesterday the king and Silvia also celebrated its 37th anniversary. And some of the first greetings came from Haga Palace. Queen Silvia said Crown Princess and Prince Daniel also had their wedding anniversary so they had congratulated each other today.
The Queen was happy that Madeleine and Chris are so happy, the wedding day was unforgettable. She would like to have more grandchildren, but ended the interview by saying that it is getting very private now.
