But wouldn't you agree that the cold is a good excuse for the Queen to wear her nice, long, beautiful fur coat?

To my eyes, the King looks a bit fatigued. Did they take the train, or fly? They still get the month of January off, don't they?

I would hope that the queen wouldn´t wear fur at all.

Here´s a little article from Jukkasjärvi:
Kungen och Drottningen i Jukkasjärvi/Sveriges Radio

The article says that yesterday evening there was a big birthday party at the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. There were fireworks, dinner at a big ice hall, minus 5 grades Celcius and 400 guests to celebrate Carl von Linné, there has gone 300 years about his birth 1707.
This was a closing to the Year of Linne. Among the guests there were some Nobel Laureates of this year, and also the King and Queen Silvia.

I can remember the royal family went to an icehotel in 2003, before the queen's 60th birthday!
was it the icehotel in Jukkasjaväri?

Most of the royal ladies wear fur coats. I don't see what the matter with that is. After all, I eat beef, and wear shoes made of leather.

Besides, the best fashion houses, imho, are those that are based in the colder climates.

Are there no picture of the official events today?

I think it is a pitty that we see only few number of pictures of the swedish royal family! Maybe it'll change when the royal siblings get married!


Here is a link with pictures from the wedding of Annika Middelschulte who's Queen Silvia's godchild (I don't know if this is the right word):

Yes, the daughter of Beate middelschulte was a flower girl at the wedding of Queen Silvia and King carl Gustaf! I think the name of this girl is Annika and not Amelie, but may I'm wrong.
Does someone know it exactly??

The brides name was Annika, but I'm pretty sure the flower girl from Silvias wedding was called Amelie, which is also one of Princess Madeleine's middle names. I thought maybe this friend of the Queen has more children? The article didn't state anything about brothers and sisters of the bride.
My mother has a book about Queen Silvia from the early eighties with several pictures of the wedding, and this flower girl is called Amelie several times in the text. I've always wondered who she is, since the other children are all nephews and nieces of the King and Queen, but now I might have an answer!!

You are right! I've mixed it up with the name of the bride!:rofl:
there are more photos of these event from International Press Agency(IPA), but I can't find them! Has someone found any other photos of the wedding?
