Crown princess Victoria, prince Daniel, prince Carl Philip and princess Sofia attend.
At each new term of office, the King and Queen invite the members of the Riksdag to a supper at the Royal Palace. The supper starts with a concert – a so-called divertissement – in the Hall of State and is followed by a greeting ceremony.

There is one of Skistar's ski resorts in Sälen and the King and Victoria go skiing usually every year when they attend the National Conference. The program starts only 12.30, so that the participants can go skiing in the morning if they want.

Svensk Damtidning asked PR expert Paul Ronge about his thoughts on the images of the King and Victoria at the conference.
It is a highly conscious move by Victoria, he believes:
- It shows that Victoria is the one who is the adult in the room. This is a great PR strategy. It strengthens her. It shows that whatever the king says, she has a good attitude about it.
Ronge says he is impressed by the crown princess. Then he criticizes the king:
- Because it was a very strange statement in relation to her. In principle, it could not be interpreted in any other way than that he would rather have seen history turn out differently than it did.

Nice to see princess Christina attending with Tord Magnuson. Tord attends various events much more than Christina nowadays.
We see the King wearing ribbon "Tallrik 17" - he is a member of the Swedish Gastronomic Academy with number "Tallrik 17" (Plate 17), his predecessor was prince Bertil. The Academy has 17 members.
