Today was a real treat for those of us who follow the royal family. As many of you probably know, Queen Silvia celebrates her 75th Birthday this upcoming Sunday. What does one get for a Queen? Why a seminar of course! Specifically a seminar focusing on the charity work that she has been apart of during her last 43 years as Queen of Sweden.
For the Seminar, the Queen was joined by the King, all of her children, and Princess Estelle. The King’s sister Princess Christina and her husband Tord Magnusson also attended. All 260 court staff members were invited as well as representatives from her various organizations. The guest list was over 500 names long.
At the end of the seminar, the entire family gathered on stage and the three children highlighted their mother, concluding with the King asking the guests to sing Ja, må hon leva.
If you are interested in watching the seminar, SVT will show it this Sunday at 16:40. If you have not already watched, be sure to check out SVT’s Interview Documentary with the Queen. If you don’t speak Swedish- don’t worry- if you use Chrome as your web browser and translate the page- when you watch the interview, all you have to do is turn on the subtitles and they will automatically translate for you!
