Here are pictures of the Crown Princess and Princess Lilian today at the Opening of Parliament at the Houses of Parliament, to which they travelled to by carriages in a cortčge through Stockholm. From Imagine Scandinavia.

You're welcome!

I think she might have been laughing to tears, at least that's what Crown Princess Victoria did (a little I think) during the ceremony, she and the Speaker of the Parliament had such a big laugh together. The whole athmosphere was very "gigglish" in the Parliament today, I don't know why though.

Great photos, thanks for posting them GrandDuchess. I especially like the last one in the last set, great smile! Is it tradition to wear black to the opening of parliament, both Queen Silvia and CPss Victoria seem to be in black?

The King and Queen rode in a parade kalesch ā la d'Aumont, a four horse carriage, during the cōrtege to the Houses of Parliament. Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip followed in a two horse parade landeau. As you can see, Princess Madeleine did not attend.

The Crown Princess Victoria and the Speaker of the Parliament had a big laugh together today during the Opening of Parliament, which you can see in some of the pictures I post below (in one the Speaker of the Parliament is wiping his tears off).

These pictures are from Svenska Dagbladet.

I think that Victoria looked good today even though I don´t know why they insist of wearing black outfits every year. But maybe it´s from the "old" time when the cermony was held at the palace, in the pictures that I have seen from that time the Females of the royal family seemed to be dress in black, even though they wore a royal robe and big jewels.

I also have the same opinion, from over the recent years, always at the Opening of The Parliament, The Queen always wears black, i don't know why, some years before i think she just wore black hat only, but now completely black,i think it might be since the death of the Swedish Foreign Minister Anna Lindh who was killed in 2003? Anyone know about that?Because i used to see The Queen wore orange at The Opening of Parliament.

Here are various pictures from Imagine Scandinavia, Facetoface and Fotomarktplatz/dpa, part I
I can´t say, what it is...but Victoria looks of late (summer/autumn) amazingly at ease. It´s not, that she hasn´t looked happy in the past. But in the comparison to now, it often seemed more like some kind of "hysterical" happiness. Now she seems really well-balanced and at peace with herself. In a nutshell I would say, that she looks fantastic.

I saw the photo of Victoria laughting. But in this one everyone looks so serious, look at Göran Persson for example. it seems odd that everyone else is so serious while the queen is laughting to tears...

Victoria and Carl-Philip are looking very good today (although CP seems bored). Why is CP sitting apart from his sister? And why is Victoria sitting between empty seats in some pictures? Doesn't the royal family enter last, as they are the most important?

The empty seats might be because the primeminister was up speaking on the "stage" (what is the correct word for talarstol or what its called in swedish?) or something like that.

wonderful photos. thanks so much to everyone who posted. Victoria looked beautiful!

Didnt Lilian wear that outfit to a previous opening of parliament. The Bernadottes' penchant for recycling clothes is well documted. but the same outfit to the same event???

Princess Lilian has worn this outfit to the Opening of Parliament for many years, I think it's her traditional outfit for this occasion. I haven't seen her wearing it at other occasions.

Oh! ok, well that is actually kind of cool. a special outfit to wear only once a year. and it is lovely. the velvet is so regal. thanks for explaining this to me.

it's so funny looking at her now to think she was born a regular british girl.

On the evening of the day of the Opening of Parliament, the King and Queen together with the Crown Princess and Princess Lilian attended a concert on the occasion at the Concert Hall, where they listened to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Pictures from NewsCom.
