She looks wonderful today as well as the rest of the family.
Sesa, I absolute agree with you!

No Princess Lilian? I thought when they said the whole RF would be there they meant Lilian too.

I believe that princess Lilian is nowadays much too frail to take part to official duties. I feel sad for it, because princess Lilian is one of my favourites of the royals.

I think Victoria looked extremely elegant. I just wish she will do her hair this way more often than the everlasting pony tail. Madeleine looked very ordinary, her hat was too far forward on her face. The Queen looked lovely as always.

Apparently just the King, Queen and their children for now.

Translation of the beginning of the King's speech:

Quote:
Today we open the council of the realm (Parliament) here in Stockholm. At the same time, the United Nation's General Assembly in New York opens. There is therefore a special occasion to bring to mind those eight millennium goals that the UN agreed on in year 2000, to be finished by year 2015.

One of the goals is to halve the poverty in the world, another clean water and basic education for all, and stop the spreading of HIV/AIDS
- The King then goes on to talk about how important it is that Sweden helps with this, and how international cooperation is important if one should reach such goals. He also talked about how he's met heads of state on state visits and these things have been on the agenda.

He also talked about how democracy is important in terms of making decisions, and the parliament is the foundation for that. http://www.royalcourt.se/kungafamilj...a80002740.html

Her Majesty and Crown Princess Victoria look really nice. However, Princess Madeleine looks somewhat washed out. In my personal opinion, her outifit needs a little splash of colour to balance the whiteness.

Wow! All the ladies looked beautiful as always. The Swedish Royal Family knows how to dress! lol Victoria's jewelry added alot to her outfit, glad she wore it! Madde looked pretty, but her hat was a little too down on her face. Carl Phillip was as handsome as ever!

I actually don't like Victoria's outfit. It's dull for me same w/ Madeleine's. The colors are not right. The Queen is elegant imo. Why don't they wear sashes like the Dutch RF? I've read an article that the Queen of Sweden wears black during the opening of the parliament as a tradition.

Boris I loved your comment, you summed up the hats in such a great sentence . Changing the subject from apparel . I would like to thank you for posting part of the Kings speech. The king appears to be a very intellegent/articulate man, i'm not sure why people give him so much flack. He always appears to be quite knowledgable and know his boundaries. Does anyone know if that speech was written by someone else, or did he write it?

Pictures from the annual Opera gala which ends the day of the Riksdag's opening:


IMO, CP Victoria's outfit would look much better on her mother - who in turn wore her 'pillow on the shoulder' blouse which I had hoped never to see again, one of her VERY rare fashion faux pas ! Princess Madeleine looks pretty and I actually like Prince Carl-Philips long hair but his use of hair gel is excessive...

Thanks for the pics from the opera evening.

Could it be that Victoria wore the same outfit for the parliament opening - with changed hats & jewelry - as she did in 2005? Because the fabric does indeed look the same.

Well, dear members, I for one deeply regret that they did away with all the pomp, circumstance, jewels, throne and display of regalia. All this democritization is boring and inane. They should go back to the good old days and juice everything up. Otherwise you have nothing more than a bunch of the ususal elected hacks playing their ususal political games. As for the virtues of democracy, apart from being able to get rid of one batch of scoundrels and replacing them with another without having to shoot the first batch, there aren't any.

Would someone who can read SWedish be so kind as to translate the king's speech, I would appreciate it. Beatrix speech at the opening of the Dutch parliment was lovely and so much better, so vastly better than the bilge we get here in that bastion (or joke) of democracy, the US of A. I would be interested in reading what the good king had to say. At least now they are allowing him to say something. Cheers.

I have translated the beginning of the King's speech here and summarized the rest.
