No it's not, but maybe they will make it a new tradition for the years to come. So far, the only tradition in connection to the Opening of Parliament is the Church Service held in the Stockholm Cathedral before the ceremony at the Parliament.

This was the third year there has been some kind of musical thing on the evening of the Opening of Parliament, so I'm guessing they will make it a tradition. But we can't be sure yet. The two previous years they have gone to the Royal Opera, and this year it was the Concert Hall.

I am :) The royals have left the building and everything was as it use to be. The Kings speach, music...

The royal family was there. The Queen, Crownprincess and princess Lilian wore black/blue. Princess Madeleine wore a beige dress. And the King and prince Carl Philip wore dark suits as always :)

Victoria had a blue hat on that she wore at the opening in 1997. Talk about old stuff :) But I like that hat alot. Looks great on her

Hello Yennie. I have to say that hat is by far not my favorite of Victoria's hats.
Regarding the lady that sung during the cermony, I supose it was a tradicional song. Can you tell me anything else about it?

King Carl Gustaf of Sweden (L) addresses parliament in Stockholm 03 October 2006.

Shocking news...a so called Swedish fashion expert has Victoria in her judgement of the day higher ranked than Madeleine. Ok, it wasn´t Ebba von Sydow and also not Sofi Fahrman, but still...!
Personally I´m agreeing with this expert (Jennifer Grönqvist) Madeleine looked appropriate and pretty...but also a little bit dull. Not that Victoria was a stunner today, but better than Madeleine. Good to know, there are some working non biased eyes in the Swedish fashion world...sigh

I liked Victoria's outfit too, more than Madeleine's. But Madeleine got much more of press atention than Victoria...
Silvia was so beautiful as always!
