While I understand and agree with the reasons why Princess Madeleine and Crown Princess Victoria will not be in attendance I do have to say I am a little sad. :sad: It won't be the same.

Pictures from the Concert Hall shows that the Royal Family will be seated in two rows,as they have been for some years now. I think it looks ridiculous when they only are four people attending.

Yes, that is ridiculous. 5 people at the ceremony in 2001.

Very strange. Seems like they do all that Daniel can not be seated in the first row where his place should always have been.

Can anybody indentify the order to which the sash Peter Englund's wearing belongs?

Thanks in advance :)

It's really sad that Victoria is not attending. I would have loved to see her there.
Agree that all four should have been seated in one row, what is up with that? :huh:

Being seated in one row would give C-P and Daniel equal standing with the monarchs. Not going to happen and I agree with it. It's called protocol.

Carl Philip and princess Lilian were many times at the same row with the king and queen, so I don't see the difference now. This arrangement today looked ridiculous.
