Sorry, but does anyone know what Victoria is reading out/holding here?
Probably a booklet about the Palace and the celebrations on the national day.

Oh where is Madeleine
Madeleine is still busy with work at Unicef and couldnt come back to Sweden in time for todays celebrations. Hopefully she´ll be present next year!

Here´s the fist photo of the royal couple in Malmö, from local newspaper Sydsvenskan!

What is actually celebrated in Sweden today? Is there a specific event the Swedish remember this day or is it just a day when people don't have to go to work and can have fun?

The reason why June 6th is our national day is that Gustav Vasa became King of Sweden that day in 1523 . But other than that its nothing in particular we are celebrating

And since last year its a national holiday so people are home from work

Is that a traditional headdress Sylvia is wearing? I wonder if it has some significance.

Victoria and Carl Philip look very good. I like CPs suit.

I think maybe the headwear is similar to the Norwegian bunad. I remember seeing in the thread on Norwegian royals in bunads, a picture of Mette-Marit wearing a similar head piece. I think someone said that the headwear symbolizes that a woman is married.

What a wonderfull day. Isnt the national holiday a recent invention or at least this huge celebration for it. I simply adore Princess Lilian. A women of her age who can still look lovely and elegant. She has aged beautifully. She is a very cute old lady. She is also very strong.

Does anytbody else in Sweden still dress in national costume? It looks nice on the Queen and the Crownprincess, it even took my attention away from Carl-Phillip (which is a hard thing to do).

Thank you all for sharing the pictures of Sweden's National Day!

I believe that Queen Sylvia is the only person in the world who can use that headpiece over the years without looking bad.

Great pictures of CP Victoria, too, I just wish she tried different things with her hair.

Regards,
mtbcm :)
