A colleague showed up who had a better knowledge of ​​royalty. It was Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel and children Estelle and Oscar there at the hotel.
- Then we greeted them warmly. They ordered smoked salmon and Estelle ate chicken skewers.
Peterzén has been told that Gustaf VI Adolf, the current king's grandfather, once visited the hotel.
- Since then, we have not had any royal visits.
When lunch was finished Victoria and Daniel looked around at the newly renovated hotel.
- They looked around and said they thought it was fine, says Peterzén who also asked from the couple if they could take a picture at the hotel environment. Malin and the rest at the hotel were impressed how friendly the crown princess couple was. They chatted with the guests who came up and greeted and were generally nice.
- We were a little star-struck all of us, afterwards, says Malin Peterzén.

So, after Victoria and Daniel were recognized, the hotel wanted to make a lunch for Victoria and her family. It is quite understandable, putting a photo of the royals to the hotel Facebook is good marketing and spreads knowledge of the hotel to the people who may have never heard of it. The staff probably understood that the information of the royal visit would be noticed at the local media and then at the whole swedish media, just what happened.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia arrived in Salzburg on Saturday evening at the concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Zubin Mehta. They were welcomed by Festival President Helga Rabl-Stadler

Thank you LadyFinn for your prompt reply; it is very informative as usual. I didn't want to sound too serious about the "favour" thing. If they served them simple meals it's fine... I just was a litle surprise, because even though they are royals, Daniel and Victoria generally don't complain or don't want to be treated differently...

The restaurant did the right thing, and certainly they will have a good feedback from now on.

Obviously, he admires her and her family and granting that favour would have truly been his pleasure. It's not like she and an entourage rocked up royaly and demanded a meal.

LadyFinn explained it better on a post. I thought they had just gone there and expected some kind of lunch even with the kitchen closed, but the were happy to accept a simple meal instead. So no big deal.

The restaurant certainly got a a lot of free and good publicity!

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia came on Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock to Lessebo Pizzeria & Gatukök in southern Sweden. Sangar Gafuri from the pizzeria became very happy when he saw the king and queen, he has never seen them before. The king and queen had three bodyguards with them. They ordered both capricciosa pizza and the guards ordered kebab salad and a special called mixed salad. Sangar would have wanted to talk with the king and queen but the phone rang all the time, there were other people at the pizzeria and he didn't have time to that. But he asked if the pizza tasted good and they said they were very pleased and it was delicious. Sangar noticed that the other customers were happy to see the king and queen at the pizzeria. And there were two - three families outside the pizzeria who wanted to photograph. Sangar asked if he could take a photo with the king and queen and that was ok. The pizzeria was formerly known with a name Pizzeria Estelle & Victoria. Sangar doesn't know if that had something to do with that the king and queen came to his pizzeria.

How curious... when was it named "Victoria and Estelle"? Before or after the birth of princess Estelle?

When you wear a Yankees hat in Vaxholm, are people more or less likely to look at you?

Victoria, Daniel and the children visited Möja at the Stockholm archipelago on Monday. During the visit to the island they had lunch at Wikströms Fisk Restaurant which offers tasty dishes such as fish soup, smoked salmon and fried salt herring. Perky Estelle was in great spirits.
- She was just incredibly charming. So sweet, tells a person who was there too.
- Estelle was so cute that I wanted to kidnap her several times, says another eyewitness.
Victoria and Daniel posed with the staff of the restaurant.

Victoria and Oscar visited today Växbo Lin linen factory in Bollnäs.
From their Facebook
"Today we have lovely visit in the factory by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Oscar. Fittingly, we have Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's wedding tablecloth "Vintergatan" laid out in the store."

The Westlings' summer house and Victoria's and Daniel's other summer house is in Acktjära in Bollnäs.

Expressen writes that the Crown Princess couple has had a fantastic summer and moved in the country like any other Swede. People who have met them have taken photos and posted on social media - and the comments are lyrical.
- We were a little star-struck all of us, afterwards, says Malin Petersen, hotelier in Arkösund who received spontaneous visit of the Crown Princess couple.
Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel have in the summer shown their closeness to the Swedish people. On everything from ice cream parlors in Vaxholm to ordinary Östergötland restaurants and shops in Hälsingland, they have been moving among the common people as any family.
And many times they appear on the photos posted on social media. Besides all the positive comments they have got the images testify that the Crown Princess Couple is eager to live as ordinary a life as possible with their children.
Victoria and Oscar visited linen factory Växbo Lin in Bollnäs. The store's staff, who put the photo out point out that they asked for permission before they took the photo and received the authorization required to publish it on social media.

Svensk Damtidning tells that Victoria's friends from her studying times at Yale were visiting Victoria and her family in Sweden. So Victoria and Daniel took their friends to Wikströms Fisk restaurant in Möja. There were eight adults and five children. Daniel had got a tip about the restaurant driven by family Wikström. The group sat little secluded at the upper floor of the restaurant. Estelle visited the kitchen and asked from the chefs where they were cooking. Outside the restaurant are two muscovy ducks, Estelle liked them a lot and asked politely if she could pat them. Victoria was very satisfied with the visit and thanked the chefs later. The group got to their boat and returned to Stockholm. According to Svensk Damtidning's information Victoria took her guests to Moderna Museet on the next day. Estelle was with them, dressed in red with matching bow.

Still one group photo from the family photoshoot on 15th July, from the Facebook of Stella Pictures.

Svensk Damtidning tells, that Madeleine and Chris attended on a Saturday in August at a wedding of their friends Ulrika Arph and Didrik Thott in Gotland. The wedding was celebrated at a limestone quarry in Furillen and many of Madeleine's friends attended: Katarina von Horn, Elinore Tham, Tin-Tin af Burén and Isabelle Lewenhaupt. Ulrika and Didrik have spent their summers in Furillen and that's why they chose it to the place for their wedding. The couple has son Baltzar and Ulrika's mother told to SD that he attended at the celebration only in the beginning. The dress code was black tie. Madeleine and Chris stayed at a hotel in Visby during the weekend.
No photos of Madeleine and Chris at the wedding at the article.

Svensk Damtidning's reporter Helena Wiklund asked from king Carl Gustaf on Stenhammar Day:
Now the holidays begin, even for the royal family. What kind of summer plans they have?
The king said: "On Midsummer we are in Öland. And then, after three weeks, we celebrate the crown princess".
Then the king tells that they are having a car holiday to Germany.
"Yes, we have been invited to Bayreuther Festspiele, to its opening concert with Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. It is Waaaaagner", the king jokes.
Does the king like Wagner?
"Well yes, if it wasn't so violent all the time! But there are breaks... Then we shall visit friends too, around Europe".
It sounds like a nice holiday!
"Yes, maybe it will be a little too variable. But I'm not so amused of lying on the beach anymore and I don't sit as much in the sun as I did before", said the king.

Carl Philip, Sofia and Alexander and Madeleine, Chris and their children are on a holiday in St Tropez before they come to Öland.

Andrea Brodin and Cedric Notz are also at St. Tropez, and Madeleine's friend Louise Cronstedt with her family. Andrea put a photo to her Instagram of her and Louise and told that they had arranged a surprise birthday party to Louise on 22nd June.

Madeleine had commented the photo. So obviously if Madeleine was already then in St. Tropez, I guess she attended at the party too.

I'm really glad to see those pictures. Not because there are paparazzis in France (we knew that), but because it might put the rumors about hostility between Madeleine and Sofia to rest. I'm not saying that they are the closest of friends, but they obviously like each other enough to chose to go on a vacation together.
