  1. Wow! Queen Silvia has an enviable figure! She looked absolutely wonderful in her gown and tiara! Her gown was even prettier than her daughter’s and daughter-in-law’s! They looked very nice, but the Queen was amazing! The gentlemen looked very elegant too, in their white tie and orders. But then they always do, n’est pas?

  2. Wow! Didn’t know Sweden had a royal family. All one hears about is the British royal family. How elegant. We need to hear more about them and other royal families too.
