He's said to understand German well, but prefers to reply in English. From what I think I've heard on Instagram stories he speaks English with the President during the tour of Drottningholm.

Yes, and did you notice the earrings? It's a first time they're worn. They seem to be made from the necklace, which has been shortened by two elements. This was made a couple of years ago but it's only now we get to see the result. Very well done imo, the necklace was a bit too long.

Margareta Thorgren told to Svensk Damtidning about the concert and reception yesterday evening:
- The royal couple held a banquet for the presidential couple and the German delegation. The German response reception was a nice concert. The president offered a jazz concert by Nils Landgren and his orchestra with a subsequent pandemic-adapted reception. Yes, the concert was much appreciated. It is a nice gesture by the presidential couple to show a Swedish artist who spends a lot of time in Germany.

Svensk Damtidning writes at an article that Victoria welcomed the Presidential couple by speaking German, she speaks German well. Damtidning also "knows" that Daniel understands some German but does not speak fluent German. On the other hand, he too is a social chameleon who can behave in all contexts. With or without German.

The German School in Stockholm about queen Silvia and the First Lady's visit:
Queen Silvia and Elke Büdenbender were impressed by the reflected pupil expressions and the family atmosphere at the German school and, looking back on their own school days, highlighted the importance of teachers for learning.

Jan Jönssön, the Vice Mayor of Social Affairs, has posted a photo to his Twitter
"Welcomed H.M. the Queen and Germany's First Lady Elke Büdenbender on a state visit to Barnahus Stockholm. Here, social services, police, pediatric care and psychiatry are gathered to help children who have been exposed to violent crime and abuse."

Expressen writes that this was a journey that the climate-conscious king would have preferred to avoid.
The government plane flew from Arlanda to Bromma to pick up the royal couple on their way to Kiruna.
The task of state aviation is to transport Sweden's highest civilian and military leaders as well as the royal family. There are two planes to do that. On the final day of the German Federal President's state visit the trip went to Kiruna. A government plane was used for the trip and took off in the morning from Arlanda, where it is stationed. It didn't fly to the north, but first made the 40 km short trip to Bromma airport where the royal couple boarded.
The same extra trip was made later the same day when the plane returned to Stockholm. Then the royal couple was released at Bromma before the plane flew back to Arlanda. According to the Swedish Armed Forces' calculations, each extra landing with the government plane means a carbon dioxide emission of 822 kilos.
The King's commitment to environmental and climate issues is well known. How do two extra flights between Bromma and Arlanda suit to the court's climate policy?
Margareta Thorgren says that the decision to pick up the royal couple in Bromma was made by the First Marshal of the Court for reasons of time and logistics.
- There were a number of aspects that weighed in, for example, the royal couple is always on site before the guests during state visits. The government plane's home base was previously Bromma, but is now Arlanda, which means that when the Head of State uses the plane, he now flies from Arlanda.
It's about eight kilometers from Drottningholm Palace to Bromma, but over 40 km to Arlanda.
Thorgren says that there may be more pick-ups at Bromma, it can't be ruled out, but in the first place, the Royal Family uses regular flights and they constantly review travel to make it as climate-neutral as possible. The king and queen couldn't travel by train to Norrland, but Thorgren says that the Royal Family chooses the train as often as possible. And the pandemic taught them a lot about holding meetings digitally, it is something they will continue to avoid unnecessary travel.
In addition to the Swedish government plane, another plane went between Arlanda and Kiruna because the German delegation flew in its own, much larger plane.
- For security reasons, two heads of state never fly in the same plane, says Thorgren.
