Am I right in thinking that the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian Paliaments were all opened on the same day?

The pink jacket Victoria wore at the concert, could it be a new version of the hideous coat she wore at the Kings birthday in 2005?

If so thats good

Same Day for All

Wasn't the Opening of the Parliament used to be September? What was the reason for the change? Also, I do not recall any concert for the event? thanks

It depends the Opening of Parliament usually takes place between late September - early October each year.

That is a lovely brooch and I must say that the queen very lovely and I liked her hat too. In fact, the Queen and the two princesses did very well with hats this year. That's something one can't say too often when it comes to the Bernadottes and hats. A winning Hats policy by the Bernadottes would be most excellent!

Is that a special event? I as a Swede have never heard of it...

A webcast is available online via SVT. Just go to svt.se - Startsida and then click on "Följ sändningen här!" beside the camera icon located under the picture of the Parliament.

Question

How strange: why doesn't Victoria wear a hat while Madeleine and Silvia wear one?

Picture series at Nyheter. Taken directly from television, is my guess, which is why the quality is fairly bad.

Press Nästa bild » to get to the next picture.

The royal family appear in the end, while the pictures before has a lot to do with ceremony. Among other things there was folk costumes from all over Sweden represented.

Queen Silvia and Victoria are both wearing headpieces and Madeleine is really the only one wearing a hat.

No complaints about what anyone is wearing this year. Everyone looks nice. Madeleine's attire is probably least pleasing to me, just a little blah. And I don't like the way the hat is sitting on her head, it just doesn't allow her to really be seen.

I really noticed Victoria's accessories. I think those really helped her add some nice touches to the outfit.

I like this family. The Queen as usual is very simple and elegant as well as classy. I think out of all the Queens, she is the best. She never forgets any little detail, and is always dressed to the nines whatever the event. She is not old nor frumpy. The epitome of what a Queen should be.
She looks wonderful today as well as the rest of the family.

After the very regal opening ceremony of Paliament of yesteryear was scaled down, Queen Silvia started the tradition of wearing black and white only for this occasion in hommage to the black & white court dress. These days the (modified) court dresses are only worn by ladies-in-waiting for grand formal events.
Regarding the hats, both the Queen & the CP look great in wide-brimmed hats but I like this alternative too as long as it doesn't resemble a dead bird after being hit by a truck on a highway - that look being most poular with certain Royals for a reason that totally escapes me.
I hope the agencies will provide us with some pics from the accompaying concert tonight like they did last year!
