Rojalistisk yra mötte kungafamiljen på statsbesök i Finland


HELSINGFORS. Kronprinsessan Victoria är tillbaka i Finland.
Sjuårsjubileet av sitt första officiella statsbesök firade hon med att ta grannlandet med storm – igen.
Den 28 augusti 1996 anlöpte kungen, drottningen och kronprinsessan Packhuskajen i Helsingfors med HMS Carlskrona. Det var Victorias första statsbesök och hon tog Finland med storm.
Nästan på dagen sju år senare var det dags igen. Vid halvtiotiden i förmiddags lade HMS Visborg till vid Packhuskajen och kung Carl Gustaf, drottning Silvia och kronprinsessan togs emot med pompa och ståt.
Vid förra besöket charmade Victoria som proffsig nybörjare, i dag som rutinerat proffs. I en rosa, elegant dräkt hälsade hon med glimten i ögat på alla höga ämbetsmän som tog mot den svenska delegationen.
Statsbesöket inleddes med en vacker mottagning hos president Tarja Halonen. Gåvor utbyttes mellan kungafamiljen och presidenten.
Statsbesöket fortsatte med en rörande kransnedläggning vid Hjältekorset och marsalk Mannerheims grav. Kungen, Silvia och Victoria hedrade de 15 000 soldater som stupade i finska vinterkriget och de 50 000 finländare som miste livet i andra världskriget.
Vid en speciell ceremoni vid Sandudds begravningsplats hedrades också alla de svenska frivilliga som föll under kriget.
I eftermiddag fortsätter statsbesöket. Kungen och drottningen åker till ett småföretagarseminarium, arrangerat av Sveriges exportråd och dess finska motsvarighet Finpro. Därefter besöker kungaparet den finska riksdagen och talmannen.
För kronprinsessans del fortsätter dagen med ett skräddarsytt program. Victoria öppnar en fotoutställning i Sanoma-koncernens byggnad och fortsätter därefter till ett besök på tidningen Helsingin Sanomats redaktion.
Före kvällens stora galamiddag på slottet, där kungen, drottningen och kronprinsessan tas emot av president Halonen, hinner Victoria dessutom med en författarträff på Akademiska bokhandeln i centrala Halsingfors. Bland deltagarna märks exempelvis den svenske historikern och författaren Peter Englund.

Apparently there were about a thousand Finns welcoming the Swedish royals when they came to the harbour. After visiting the President's Castle (a direct translation so it doesn't really make any sense :wacko: ) the King visited the Hietaniemi graveyard and this evening they will have a dinner with Finland's president in the "castle".

Princess Victoria visited a photo exhibition of young Finnish and Swedish photographers. In those photos Josefine posted she is taking a photo which will be later used by actual newspapers. According to the Swedish royal court it is the first-ever photo that Victoria has taken for the press :lol:

On Wednesday the royals will visit Hamina and Porvoo and on Thursday Jyväskylä.

There's some sort of news video on this site of their visit to Helsinki, click on "Ruotsin kuningasperhe vierailee Suomessa".

Victoria stjärnan

På tisdagen inledde kungaparet ett tre dagar långt statsbesök i Finland, det fjärde för kungen och tredje för drottning Silvia.
Även kronprinsessan Victoria är med på resan till grannlandets väldiga belåtenhet; det är inte tu tal om vem som är stjärnan i gänget.

På förmiddagen gled den svenska marinens HMS Visborg in i Helsingfors södra hamn. De höga gästerna, som den finländska terminologin lyder, åkte direkt den korta biten till Slottet för mottagningsceremonier med president Tarja Halonen och hennes make, juris doktor Pentti Arajärvi.
Efter de obligatoriska vinkningarna till folket - ett par tusen människor hade samlats längs kajerna i den höstgrå huvudstaden - väntade Sandudds begravningsplats.

Hedersuppdrag
Sedan kransnedläggningen vid Hjältekorset och marskalk Mannerheims grav klarats av, styrde kungen stegen mot den svenska minnesstenen och krigsveteranen där.
Orvar Nilsson kämpade mot Sovjetunionen i såväl Vinterkriget och Fortsättningskriget, i norra Finland och på Karelska näset. Nu är han ordförande i Svenska Finlandsfrivilligas minnesförening och får bevittna hur en svensk kung för första gången med en krans minner om de 121 svenskar som dog i krigen.
- Det är svårt att uttrycka hur det känns. Titta där, på deras namn, säger han med kärvande röst och pekar på minnesstenen.
- Sju av dem var under mitt befäl. De blev kvar där ute.
- Att hedra minnet av de här pojkarna är något fantastiskt för oss frivilliga. Det är bara några få av oss kvar nu från slutstriderna som lever fortfarande.

Saknar kungaglansen
Den svenska kungafamiljen går hem hos breda folklager i Finland. Bland de ivrigt vinkande på kajen står Riitta Clarström med make. Hon tror inte att populariteten har så mycket med historiska skäl att göra; det är snart 200 år sedan den sex sekler långa svenska tiden tog slut.
- Vi har inga sådana glansfulla figurer här längre. Förr hade vi våra skönhetsdrottningar, men nu är det Victoria som gäller. Hon är ju så naturlig, säger hon.
De kungliga ägnade resten av dagen åt besök i bland annat riksdagen och stadshuset. På kvällen vankades galamiddag på Slottet.

Galamiddag
Cirka 160 personer hade bjudits in till middagen. Värden, president Tarja Halonen, återknöt i sitt tal till sitt utspel förra veckan då hon i ovanligt raka ordalag hoppades att Sverige ska rösta ja till euron.
Kung Carl Gustaf konstaterade i sitt tal ''att Estland, Lettland, Litauen och Polen snart är del i det allt tätare EU-samarbetet kommer det att ytterligare stärka vår gemensamma säkerhet i Östersjöregionen''.
Båda statscheferna tog också upp betydelsen av respektive språks ställning som minoritetsspråk i länderna.

Kuninkaalliset vierailevat Haminassa ja Porvoossa


Ruotsin kuningas Kaarle XVI Kustaa ja kuningatar Silvia sekä kruununprinsessa Victoria ovat jatkaneet valtiovierailuaan Suomessa tutustumalla Haminaan.

Kuninkaalliset vieraat saapuivat presidentti Tarja Halosen ja tohtori Pentti Arajärven seurassa Haminaan aamukymmeneltä helikopterilla.

Yleisöä oli kerääntynyt kulkureitin varteen runsaasti hyvissä ajoin ennen vieraiden tuloa. Aurinkoinen sää suosi vierailua.

Yleisö sai mitä halusi, kun kruununprinsessa Victoria tuli näkyville.

Kuninkaallisten vierailu oli Haminan 350-vuotisjuhlien kohokohta. Kuninkaalliset vieraat ja presidenttipari tutustuvat muun muassa raatihuoneeseen, Haminan Bastioniin ja kaupunginmuseoon.

Iltapäivällä presidenttipari ja vieraat käyvät Porvoon kaupungintalossa ja Borgå gymnasiumissa, jossa tutustutaan lukion historialliseen kirjastoon.

Vierailuun sisältyy myös käynti Tuomiokirkossa. Kirjailijatalossa isäntänä on talossa asuva kirjailija Christer Kihlman.

Illalla kuningaspari tarjoaa juhlapäivällisen Helsingissä.



Translation of the above.

I'm a little late on this one!

From Hello!


A 63-gun salute welcomed Crown Princess Victoria and her parents, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, as the Swedish royals arrived at the port of Helsinki on Tuesday, kicking off an offical tour of Finland.

A morning reception, hosted by President Tarja Halonen and her husband, Dr Pentti Arajarvi, at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki was one of the first stops for the royal family, who plan to be in Finland until Thursday.

Later, Crown Princess Victoria, who wore a pink suit for the festivities, swapped the formal hat she wore to the reception for a pair of glasses as she visited an academic book store in the city. The 25-year-old future queen had a packed agenda for the first day of her tour, spending the early afternoon inaugurating a photography exhibition and in the evening attending a dinner in her family's honour, once again as guests of the first couple.

King Carl Gustaf, his wife and eldest daughter are scheduled to visit Hamina, Porvoo and Jyvaskyla in the coming days.

what did you think of the dresses
we got to see one new dress for victoria.


are there any finns here that can tell us what was reported about the state visit in the media.... or if they was there in person.....

Lena 08-28-2003 07:09 AM

Honestly this time I´vent noticed that it is an old dress until somebody on the glittering royals message board wrote it :rolleyes:
It looks different on her now, it seems as if she has slimmed since then (Märtha Louises wedding?) a lot.

i was thinking of the blue dress

is this a new dress

and here is the back of the dress

Mia 08-28-2003 08:06 AM

What more can we Finns add to the newspaper articles? I think that Crown Princess Victoria had the greatest success here in Finland.

I think that the Swedish royal family is doing marvellous job for the Swedish image. They are popular here in Finland too, though we Finns want to compete with the Swedes in sports and business.

I was at the Sanoma publishing house the 26th and saw a glimpse of the Crown Princess Victoria when she opened the photo exhibition. She looked great in her pale pink dress, which we've seen already at the wedding in Belgium (the papers actually wrote of this and added in a very positive way that 'she is not afraid to use her outfits several times').

She looked very fit, slimmer and prettier (if that's possible) than in the pictures. And, boy, does she have a warm smile. The crown princess was guided by the different photographers of the exhibition and she seemed to have a lot of comments and discussion with the artists. She looked genuinly interested.

Josefine 08-28-2003 08:10 AM

hi Mia thank you for your report

is daniel a topic in finland....

Mia 08-28-2003 08:45 AM

Not that much... I don't know was it already told on this board that the press tried to ask something of Daniel and Princess Victoria had smiled and said that she could have guessed that someone would bring that up.

They also asked when the engagement is announced and she had replied something like "I know of this just as much as you do". She is very enigmatic. Or clever enough not to talk of her private life.

Cissan 08-28-2003 09:40 AM

About the blue dress

I don't think that the blue dress is a new one. But I think that she has altered the back of it. I think that she wore it to some occasion in Denmark (Queen Margerete celebrated her 60:th birthday perhaps?). I remember it because the first day Madeleine wore a blue dress and Victoria a red one and the second day Victoria wore this dress and Madeleine a red one. Do you remeber this too? But I don't think that the back of the dress was so revealing then.

I found a link to a picture of Victoria in the dress. I'm pretty sure it's the same dress!

I don't know about it being altered, but Victoria definitely wore the same blue dress to Queen Margrethe's 60th birthday celebrations.

I definitely think it's the same dress. Maybe the lighting makes them look like they're different.

It must be the same dress&#33;That was the first thing I thought when I saw the picture, before I saw your comments about it. I think that she had to alter it because of her now slimmed down body ( look at her bosom and compare it to the older picture&#33;) and then she/ the dressmaker decided to make the dress a bit more interesting with that back.

I really like the way she wears the Baden Fringe tiara but the necklace is too elaborated for her- it looks better on her mum, V. needs the strict, sober lines ( or is that just my personal taste?) :)

Sorry Josefine, I don´t think that it is the same dress. The dress you just posted is green, not blue. take a look at the orderband (don´t know the name for it...) it is green and the dress is in the same colour, and I think I have seen this dress in pictures before, but they are very simular. maybe they got the idea to change the back on the blue dress from this one.

what years has there been state visit between sweden and finland

Boris 07-07-2007 02:29 PM

Josefine, during the King's reign there has been an amazing number of state visits to and from Finland which should set a record. State visits to Finland:
# 1 in 1974, The King only of course, as he was not yet married;
# 2 in 1996, The King & Queen & CP Victoria
# 3 in 2003, The King & Queen & CP Victoria.
There were also even more return state visits from Finland to Sweden: In 1975, 1982, 1994, and in 2000.
