There will be a Representation/Official dinner at the Royal Palace on 24th November. According to the calendar only the King and Queen are set to attend, but I assume at least the Crown Princess Couple will attend as well.

King Carl Gustaf and Victoria attended the Council of State today. During Councils of State, each minister present informs The King about political initiatives, investigations and current legislation within his or her department, and responds to questions asked by The King. The King leads these Councils of State, in which the Crown Princess also participates.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia and Victoria arrived to Stefan Persson's anniversary symposium, arranged at Aula Medica at Karolinska Institutet. Stefan Persson, the richest man in Sweden, celebrated his 70th birthday on 4th October. He and Family Erling-Persson Foundation have donated a lot of money to Karolinska Institutet for research and to the building of Aula Medica, and Karolinska Institutet wants to highlight this with a scientific symposium where researchers from KI and other universities present research areas supported by the Family Erling-Persson Foundation. The foundation supports scientific research, primarily projects focusing on medicine and care, but also other research. Stefan Persson is a close friend of the royal family. The symposium is private. The royals were welcomed by Vice-Chancellor Ole Petter Ottersen and Chairman of the Karolinska Institutet Board Mikael Odenberg.

Nice to see Sofia attending, I'm actually a bit surprised by this. And Crown Princess Victoria has not had many tiara events this year, she also missed the state banquet for Canadian state visit.

King Carl Gustaf, Victoria and Carl Philip met today Micael Bydén, the Supreme Commander of the Swedish Armed Forces and major-general Bengt Andersson, the director of Exercise Aurora 17.

Of course we are free to think as we want. When I see the picture; I see that a funny/humorous episode just has taken place. Like someone said something funny or something unpredictable just happened. That is what I see in the picture, and don't see anything wrong with the King making a facial expression that is not neutral. Actually, in my opinion this face expression better reflects my view of the King and his personality.

Victoria is smiling and it looks like the king has been smiling too. Don't see anything wrong with the king expression nor I don't understand what his expression has to do anything with the fact that he's standing beside his heir. Its not like he's scowling at her.

Here, Victoria and Silvia show support for #metoo
Here, Queen Silvia and Victoria give support to those who suffered sexual assault.
When hundreds of actors testified about their real life, Silvia and Victoria are in the audience.
The presence is the royal family's way of supporting the #metoo movement and all the women who shared their testimony during the past month.
Queen Silvia and Victoria's visit to Södra Teatern in Stocholm has been planned under great secrecy.
In the audience there were also Minister for Culture and Democracy Alice Bah Kuhnke who listened to the stories.
But even Sweden's royal family chose to highlight the importance of these stories coming to the surface by the Queen Silvia sitting in the audience.
Expressen thinks that the family and the court for a long time thought about ways for the royal family to manifest, and finally it was possible to do with the Queen and Crown Princess's presence at Södra Teatern.
The Queen has a long commitment to sexual violence and sexual abuse. Particularly targeted at children through the World Childhood Foundation.
Här visar Victoria och Silvia sitt stöd till #metoo _ Kungligt _ Expressen

- This is a very important campaign, said Victoria at the black carpet, heading into the theater.
In the beginning there were 456 actors. Now the list has grown to 703 people in the Swedish film and theater industry, which testify about sexual abuse and harassment. Their stories were published nine days ago in Svenska Dagbladet.
On Sunday, the actors gathered for a special event at the Södra Teatern in Stockholm, to read anonymous testimony of the abuse.
It started with that they were photographed in four groups at the black carpet.

It is good they walked together. Royal protocol is complicated.
Non-royal spouses’ status is validated only in the presence of their royal spouses.
So, if CPVictoria is not present, Prince Daniel cannot walk in front of Carl Philip or Princess Madeleine. And Princess Sofia without Carl Philip cannot walk in front of Princess Madeleine.

Sofia and princess Christina attended today at Sophiahemmet's graduation ceremony at the Stockholm City Hall.
Belga Image
IBL Bildbyrå

Today, Princess Christina, Mrs Magnuson, is appointed to the first honorary doctor of Sophiahemmet University. This for a long and earnest commitment that goes far beyond the usual.
- Princess Christina has been working for the university's development for over 40 years. For us, there is an extremely important symbolic value that she is the one who becomes our first and only honorary doctor so far, says Johanna Adami, Principal of the Sophiahemmet University.
Today she and Sophiahemmet's chairman Lars Kihlström Burenstam Linder handed over doctor's hat, diploma and doctor's ring to Princess Christina at the graduation ceremony in the Blue Hall. A honorary doctorate is usually given as an expression of appreciation and significant efforts for an university's activity, and it is the institutions themselves who decide if and in such cases who will be appointed.
- Sophiahemmet University has recently been granted a degree in doctoral education, and since Princess Christina has been a major support for our academic environment, the appointment feels very good, says the Dean of Research at the University, Ingela Rådestad.
Princess Christina was the Honorary Chairman of Sophiahemmet for 44 years and has shown tireless commitment to the university's activities over the years. She has always taken part in big events such as nurses' graduation. But the Princess has also been standing steadily in more difficult times. Among other things, she was deeply engaged in the 80's when Sophiahemmet University was thrown down, but also when the entire group was coordinated just under ten years ago.
- She has worked most highly operationally and has been one that is influenced both internally and externally to the university's advantage. We are extremely grateful for this work, and I am pleased to be able to appoint Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson, to Honorary Doctor of Philosophy today. A title she really deserves, says Johanna Adami.

This is great, princess Christina has done a wonderful job for Sophiahemmet University, and many other associations. Wonderful that she gets this honour. And she looked regal and beautiful today.

Yes, I recognized her from this photo. Sisters and survivors from concentration camps, Hedi Fried and Livia Fränkel are sitting beside her. Nina is 96 years old, Hedi 93 and Livia 90. Great ladies. Nina Lagergren was married with Gunnar Lagergren, the Marshal of the Realm in 1976-83. NIna was invited to Victoria's 40th birthday celebration last year.

The court at its website about the seminar:
Invited guests were among others survivors and relatives of survivors, organizations, embassies, students from Blackeberg and Åva high schools, teachers and students from the Police Program at Södertörn University.
The crown princess welcomed all and said in her speech:
"Never again, we say when we speak about the Holocaust. But ... think how many times in history as humanity has said "never again". And meant it. But still it happens. Again and again. Worldwide. In Rwanda, in the Balkans, in Burma: People are pursued, repressed, even killed. Just because they belong to a particular group of people or beliefs. "Wrong" group. "Wrong" faith.
Perhaps we will never completely suppress hatred and prejudice. [...] But what we can do, and must do, is to equip ourselves with knowledge and understanding.
Knowledge about our history and the meaning of words such as human rights, tolerance, civil courage. Understanding, that what happened may happen again, yes, will happen again if we are not very aware. It's when we forget the history when we risk repeating its worst and ugliest pages.
Testimonies from the people who survived The Holocaust are invaluable for creating this understanding. Some of you are here today. I can not thank you enough for the work you do by sharing your experiences."

Expressen writes that queen Silvia broke consciously the protocol by starting her speech at the seminar "Dear children".
It was a high level meeting with invited guests from all over the world who together discuss how to prevent violence against children.
Amongst the participants, apart from the Queen and Crown Princess Victoria are, among others, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Deputy Secretary-General of UN Amina J. Mohammed, Dominican Republic's Minister for Women's Affairs Janet Camilo and Norway's Minister of Children and Equality Linda Hofstad Helleland.
If the Queen is speaking and the Crown Princess is sitting in the audience, the queen will first say "Your Royal Highness," and then welcome the other guests.
But when the Queen spoke on Wednesday, she completely dismissed the protocol.
Before addressing Crown Princess Victoria, she said: "Dear Children", to address the children who came to the Children's Rights Conference. In most cases, such a greeting message will come last - but since the day was about children and children's rights, the Queen chose to go a little beyond the limits.
The audience quickly noted that the protocol was broken and Queen Silvia smiled, a little proud to Crown Princess Victoria before she continued with "Your Royal Highness, Excellencies, Ministers, Ladies and gentlemen."
Also Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed started her speech "Dear children".

The players told to the press about the visit:
- It was awesome. It was something that you couldn't be with - if you aren't at a national team, says Adam Larsson.
- That was cool. You must have done something to get there, says Jacob de la Rose.
In the photos, Prince Oscar is wearing a small Tre Kronor-shirt (Tre Kronor is the name of the National Icehockey Team) with all the Swedish players' autographs while holding the World Cup together with big sister Estelle.
Information officer Ulrika Näsholm tells us that Prince Oscar got the shirt from the hockey team after last year's World Cup gold.
- It was a gift from the hockey team which he received last year when they won. Princess Estelle got a shirt today, too, she said.
On the other hand, the princess was not seen wearing the shirt at the photos. The reason was simply that she got the shirt after the photographers had left.
- She got it after the media had left. She put it on a little later, says Ulrika Näsholm.
Mika Zibanejad tells of the meeting at the Palace.
- It was amazing. Last I did it after Junior World Championships. That honor is incredibly great. It is not possible to describe. Amazingly great. It's about showing appreciation from both directions. It is mutual respect. It was great fun to be there, he said.

It is the Sweden dinner (Sverigemiddag) where the female guests can have evening dresses as well as cocktail dresses. Victoria wore this dress she has tonight at the Sweden dinner last September. Then both she and queen Silvia had evening dresses. All royal ladies had evening dresses also at the Sweden dinner in September 2016. In Sweden dinner 2015 Sofia had cocktail dress, queen Silvia and Victoria had evening dresses. In 2014 and 2013 Victoria had cocktail dress and queen Silvia evening dress. At Sweden dinners the men wear black tie.

At these official dinners (representationsmiddag) the dress code is always white tie and women wear evening dresses.
There is always one Sweden dinner in a year, and 2 or 3 official dinners.

"Today, the King and Crown Princess visited the Swedish National Defence Radio Establishment's head office on Lovön, outside of Stockholm, to inform themselves about the agency's activities. The King and Crown Princess received, among other things, contributions from FRA's employees on developments in the immediate area, how FRA works with issues related to international terrorism and how FRA contributes to the construction of a national cyber defense. FRA's Director General Dag Hartelius described the King and Crown Princess the development of the Authority and the challenges facing FRA in the coming years. Superintendent Charlotta Gustafsson also participated in the visit."

From the official dinner:
Magda Gad's conversation with the Crown Princess at the Palace

Magda Gad, Expressen's War Correspondent, was one of the guests at the Royal Couple's official dinner this week.
- It was a very solemn and stylish dinner at the Palace in beautiful surroundings with good food and exciting company, she says.
The guest list contained individuals from industry as well as politics and media and, on Thursday evening, Magda Gad received a private chat with both the king and the crown princess.
Talked about the fake murder of Ukrainian journalist
The king and Magda Gad talked about the fake murder of Russian journalist Arkadij Babtjenko when the king wondered what her theory of the whole was.
- He stated that he appreciates journalism that takes time, it is better that it goes slowly and gets right than it goes fast and gets wrong. The king also thought that if a journalist is doubtful about what actually happened then this should be said that it only gets more confidence if the report tells that it may be in one way but that it may also be in the other way and that what is correct, you do not know yet, Magda Gad says about the conversation with the king.
"The Crown Princess asked how people have it in the war"
At the same time, the Crown Princess asked questions about how the people in the middle of war live, and whom Magda Gad visits during her reports:
- The Crown Princess asked a lot about how the people are having it in the war, how the situation is in Syria today, how much land IS controls and how I prepare for my assignments. When I told about my friend Nejlikan in Raqqa and that she lost her barely two-year-old daughter in a bombing she became noticeably touched, said Magda Gad.
- Everyone had very many questions about my work, which is obviously appreciated. It is a receipt that I have reached it, she concludes.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, Victoria and Daniel attend this afternoon at the inauguration of the Tsunami memorial in the National City Park in Blockhusudden at Royal Djurgården in Stockholm. Also prime minister Stefan Löfven attends at the inauguration. Lea Porsager is the artist behind Gravitational Ripples which became the winning contributor in an international art contest on the design of the memorial.
The completion of memorial monument is now in a final stage. The work is still covered in a green cellulose cloth containing grass seeds and herbs. During the summer, the cloth will molder away, the grass grows and the work will become a green and flourishing place.

"We carry our memories with us always wherever we go. Yet it can mean a lot to have a place to go to remember. (...) It feels good that the Royal Djurgården land can be used for this purpose. And I I'm honored to be here today with you. Dear friends! I hope this memorial monument will be a place for many to visit - an opportunity for reflection. A place for you. "

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia attend tomorrow afternoon in Solliden at the presentation of Årets Ölänning (The Öland Inhabitant of the Year) 2018 - Crown princess Victoria. King Carl Gustaf delivers the diploma, the Solliden Prize and flowers to Victoria.
The jury's reasoning for choosing Victoria as this year's Öland Inhabitant of the Year was:
"Throughout her life in words and actions, the award winner of the year has expressed her love for Öland, a place where she feels at home. Her earthly commitment to the province and people contributes strongly to the island's development and attractiveness. With her presence and vigor, she creates interest and attention for Öland, both nationally and internationally. Her birthday, July 14, has been for a long time celebrated as Öland's own national day."
Victoria gave a short written statement:
- I'm honored and happy to receive this award. Öland is a special place for me and my family. It feels nice to showcase Öland with all the richness and special features that are characteristic to the island.

Svensk Damtidning and Barometern show the event live. The broadcast starts at 14.45 and the event at 15.00. Johan T Lindwall, the editor-in-chief of Svensk Damtidning, looks forward to tomorrow.
- That Crown Princess Victoria has been chosen as The Öland Inhabitant of the Year is a big deal locally on Öland, but also great for everyone who follows Svensk Damtidning and our reporting of royals. We give now everyone who can't be in place on Öland the opportunity to still follow the whole celebration at Svensk Damtidning.
Lindwall says that Svensk Damtidning's readers can expect more similar live broadcasts and other fun in the future.
- I am extremely pleased to be able to invite our readers to this cooperation with Barometern. This is just one of many collaborations that Svensk Damtidning is aiming for in terms of royal material.

King Carl Gustaf was The Öland Inhabitant of the Year in 1996.

LadyFinn 07-05-2018 08:51 AM

Victoria was officially named as Årets Ölänning (the Öland Inhibitant of the Year) 2018 in a ceremony in Solliden. Victoria got a diploma and the Solliden Prize, a glass bowl from Kosta Boda called "Globe" from her father. The Öland Inhabitant of the Year is an award awarded by a jury appointed by the newspaper Barometern and Sveriges Radio P4 Kalmar. The first Öland Inhabitant of the Year was chosen in 1980.

- It is obviously very funny for me to hand this over to the Crown Princess. The reasoning is well expressed, that's exactly what it's about. Very well done, says the king.
Then it was the Crown Princess's turn to speak.
- I would like to thank Öland. It is so that I've been here all my life, and I long to return. I can reveal that when I cross the Öland Bridge and just as I cross the bridge, it's "Jippie". Then there is always sorrow as I go back to the mainland. Öland is and remains a fantastic special place not only for me but also for my own little family, which I have brought here. It's a need simply to get here, said Victoria.

Johan T Lindwall, the editor-in-chief of Svensk Damtidning:
Victoria + Öland = True. Yes, it's really so and now the Crown Princess has got the ultimate proof of it when she became the Öland Inhabitant of the Year today.
Here on Öland, Crown Princess Victoria has spent all her childhood summers and it was here she came in the summer of 1977, just a few weeks old. Victoria and Daniel have also made Solliden to their vacation paradise in their relatively newly built Villa Skönviken, just a few hundred meters from Kalmarsund, and a couple of minutes walk from Solliden Palace.
Crown Princess Victoria was an obvious choice as The Öland Inhabitant of the Year. Dad King received himself the 1996 prize and could proudly hand it out to daughter Victoria. Princess Estelle is in the future a given choice for the same price as mom and grandfather.
Summer has begun for Victoria and next week we are many who are on Öland to celebrate the world's best crown princess.

The royal family has followed the fire situation and in addition, the king has continuously received status reports from the counties. At the same time it was important for the king not to visit the fire-borne resorts before the situation became "more controlled", says Thorgren.
- He did not want to disturb the rescue work and take off the resources, she says.

The successor of the Swedish throne, Princess Victoria, visited Polish firefighters who help to extinguish forest fires in Sweden.
The visit was unannounced - the princess arrived at the moment when firefighters were burning off single fires.
- A column of cars drove up, from one of them got off to a seemingly nice young lady who turned out to be the heir to Sweden's throne., reported the junior Brigadier headman Michał Langner from the Main Headquarters of the State Fire Service.
- The princess mainly asked what kind of activities we were doing, how we worked and if we lack anything. It was a nice conversation, says the younger brigadier.
Poland sent 139 firefighters from the State Fire Service and 44 vehicles to Sweden.

On Friday, September 14, the royal couple gave Sweden dinner at the Royal Palace. Through the Sweden dinner, the royal family wants to pay attention to people who have made significant efforts locally, regionally or nationally.
Invited guests were representatives from culture, business, education, sports and associations from Sweden's 21 counties and the country's governors. The approximately 170 guests were welcomed and greeted by the royal couple, the Crown Princess couple and Prince couple in Lovisa Ulrika's dining room. The first to greet the royal family was the new Marshal of the Realm Fredrik Wersäll with his wife Anna.
