According to SVT play, SVT Forum sends in their program live from the opening at 13.25, here is the link
https://www.svtplay.se/video/2351850/svt-forum

Here is a link to the live broadcast at the website of the Parliament, it should be in english.
Opening of the Riksdag session - Riksmötets öppnande tisdag 30 september 2014 - riksdagen.se

Sofia Hellqvist will attend at the opening. Princess Madeleine and the family is left in the United States because of her work with Childhood, says Thorgren.
Princess Madeleine has long stood as a participant in the royal calendar, but her name has in recent days been removed.
- It is not always that everyone can join, but it is a goal that the family has, says Margareta Thorngren.
Sofia Hellqvist följer med på riksmötet Nyheter Aftonbladet
So once again, it is different when Sofia is in question. Daniel and Jonas didn't attend at the opening in 2009.

The royal family arrived to the Stockholm Cathedral.

So sad that Chris and Madeleine weren't there. I would have loved to see the whole family at an official event again.

Victoria looked wonderful. She has grown on me enormously during the last few years. She seems really at home in her job as Crown Princess nowadays ( I remember years long ago when it looked very different). I liked her outfit very much. Black and cream-white. Perfect for the occassion. And her hairdo was nice too. I like it when she wars her hair like that.

I'm also mighty surprised. I didn't expect Sofia to be there, even though I always liked her and was already sad that we wouldn't see her there this year. IMO she had a good premiere at an official royal event. She also has a nice outfit but it's sad that she didn't have a single little extra in a different colour than black. OK, she has a white cluth and a bit of white colour in her facinator, but a brooche like the queen had or a necklace in white would have done her good. She looked enormously dark in most of those pictures.

I did like that Sofia was appropriately dressed, but I wish she'd stop with the always looking for a camera to look at. At this point that's my only gripe with her.

Is it usual practice for the women to wear black and white?

All three have, with Sophia almost duplicating the Queen's outfit.

This is discussed every year. Yes, it is usual practice to wear black and white. A long time ago the traditional Swedish court dress was used at the opening of the Parliament. Queen Silvia chose to wear black outfits with some white details to honor the traditional Swedish court dress after it was abolished, in the 70's I think.

Yes this ín Honour of the old swedish Court dress with train and all which was worn to the Old Opening of Parliament which took until 1974 lace in the Hall of State of the Royal Palace.

Here is a Video from the 1974 Opening: Riksdagens högtidliga öppnande 1974 | SVT Play

Well, the reason is that she can attend at the state events because she is engaged to Carl Philip. Of course the king makes the final decision and the king has obviously decided that she can attend at the Opening of the Parliament, although Daniel and Jonas didn't attend in 2009 when they were engaged with Victoria and Madeleine.

That's totally off-topic, but I've noticed that the same people who complain when Prince Carl Philip and Sofia act like Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel and Princess Madeleine and Chris also complain when they act differently. The truth is that they just want to criticize the couple, no rational reason is needed.

But it's funny to observe the double standards.

I'm not sure I would view it as "a slap in the face of Daniel". To me, it is more a case of evolving norms within the SRF, and perhaps, a desire by the King and Queen to be seen to including Sofia within the family so as to quell any negative views of her.

thank you LadyFinn for all the links and info.

Nothing against Sofia, but I thought it was odd that she attended as a fiance but Daniel did not in 2009.

She looked great though. A great first outing at Parliament.

back on topic: I find all the outfits very appropriate IMO for the occasion and yes even the one Sofia is wearing (for those saying that who criticizes her is not objective and all).

I'm curious to see the dressed of tonight...

I don't believe Daniel really gives a damn. He is just too much of a gentleman and altogether nice person. Sarcasm and nastiness on his unknown thoughts really quite low class , poor humor and small minded.

I'm sorry, but are you calling me low class and small minded? I hope that's just a language misunderstanding.

I know it's your opinion, and I gave a response to it. That's how a discussion forums works.

I thought she was fine, perhaps deliberately a little underdressed.
