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.

And today the calendar was updated. Also Daniel, Carl Philip and Sofia attend at the official dinner.
Victoria will not attend at the dinner, as previously told she visits Leipzig and attends at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Germany's presentation of the Swedish Business Prize.

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.

Maybe king Carl Gustaf should remember better that he is photographed, so we wouldn't have to see facial expressions like this.

Actually I don't mind this face, I much prefer it to his natural grumpy/angry/bored face. I think it is a bit funny!

I see nothing funny in that the king looks like that at an official event while he is standing beside his heir.

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.

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.

:previous: Thank you for sharing, An Ard Ri. I wasn't expecting to see the SRF in tiaras and gowns tonight, so this was a nice surprise. I love Sofia's dress in particular! The soft colour is beautiful.

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.
 
King Carl Gustaf and crown princess Victoria attend together at Folk och Försvar (Society and Defence) National Conference in Sälen. They attend at conference's two first days on 14-15th January.
