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.

- 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.

SVT has had a live broadcast from the event, and it continues still, the actresses read women's stories.

I just was to the very same reading at the theatre in Helsingborg. It was a very strong and emotional to hear all these stories from female actors. So, I have to say I'm surprised to see the Queen and Crown Princess at the event - however I'm thrilled about it!

I'm sure it was a memorable event for you. Obviously this reading of stories #tystnadtagning was arranged at 12 places in Sweden today at the same time. It is great that queen Silvia and crown princess Victoria attended at the event in Stockholm.

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.

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.

Christina with members of her family: Tord Magnuson, Oscar Magnuson, Victor Magnuson, Vicky Andrén Magnuson and Frida Magnuson. Gustaf Magnuson and Emma Magnuson didn't attend.

Vicky posted a photo and short video to her Instagram of her mother-in-law princess Christina getting her doctor's hat:
"Wonderful to watch my sweet, lovely and intellectual mother-in-law receive her honorary doctorate tonight at the City Hall."

Wow, that is great news indeed! Congratulations to princess Christina, she certainly deserves the honour! And she looks so beautiful! Let's hope princess Sofia succesfully continues the work that princess Christina started and so dedicatedly for decades carried on.
