The Queen's name is Silvia, not Sylvia. The last thread got the name right.

Do they have special schools for immigrants in Sweden?
We have a few school for immigrants but most immigrants goes in normal school in Sweden. We have a French and English school in Stockholm at least I think they lying there. I´m not so familiar with these schools. I haven´t heard much about them. But many ambassadours kids goes in these kind of schools I think.
King Carl Gustaf met Liberia's president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf at a private audience at the Royal Palace today:

The president has a very nice outfit.
What is the president doing in Stockholm? I suppose it isnt an Official Visit or a State Visit as we would have seen all the tralala, so attending a conference maybe?

Queen Silvia stands in a window of the Royal Palace in Stockholm, Thursday Dec. 13 2007. The window was opened to represent the 13:th day of the real life Advent calendar, a tradition in the Old Town where the Palace is situated. The Queen welcomed the people who had gathered in front of the Palace and as the 13:th of December is the Lucia day in Sweden the Lucia Jeanette Köhn and a trio sang Christmas carols.

Looks like it´s quite cold in Jukkasjarvi, they have really warm clothes on.

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

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.

...celebrate [the closing to the Year of] Carl von Linné, there has gone 300 years about his birth 1707.
I never heard of this gentleman. What did he do?
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):
