Victoria looks so good in timeless classic designs. This red suit is one of the best she owns both because of its design and wonderful shade of red. Its great she recycled again the jacket, this time with the black pencil skirt and lovely brooch. She has also worn the skirt with the coat. This is how we do mixing&matching and create new and fresh looks  Wink

Its a shame she didn't manage to do something better with her hair. Her hairstyle look flat and ugly, especially with her feminine outfit. That man next to her seem have more hair that Victoria  Tongue

BTW: Michelle Pfeiffer also wore similar jacket but in black:

Wow thatís right. Itís getting dark at about 6pm in north Texas so it translates !!
It would be hard to lose sunlight so much of the time.
Madeline must be loving Florida!!
I've been in the Highlands of Scotland in mid June. The sun never really goes down. I imagine it is the reverse right now.




It's midwinter here. White, glistening snow and the darkest blue sky ever with silver stars all across it,
or aurora borealis, or just gorgeous yellow-pink-blue and whatnot above.
I wouldn't change this time and place for anything.  Star



oh, Ginger, I envy you    this is out-of-the-world spectacular....WOW, thanks for sharing  Star

Victoria looks stunning in red . I think sheís more and more ready to take on the top postion. She absolutely has a regal presence and posture and reminds me of other iron ladies like Beatrix and of course QE II. Iím looking forward to the Queen Victoria era. Does anyone of you know, Is CG planning on abdicating at some point or does he like Margarethe stays on till he dies?  Thinking

I doubt CG is going to abdicate. Like Denmark, Sweden doesn't have a tradition of monarchs abdicating. Although, you never know nowadays! Queen Victoria could be closer than we all think!

Thank you Caliope  Star,
Yes, you might be right. I think she is ready and will make a wonderful queen. Smiley

CG has always stated that he wants Victoria to take the time to be a mom and to be with her children while they are young and need her the most.  Perhaps this is because of how he saw Vic, CP and Madeleine affected by their parent's long absences.  Becoming Queen will be a huge tax not only on Vic but on Dan, Estelle and Oscar.  While I am no fan of CG, I appreciate that he wants Estelle and Oscar to have their time with Vic before Vic takes on all of Sweden.

CG, Silvia, Victoria and Daniel attended the formal gathering of the Swedish Academy. This is the first time that CP, Sofia, Madeleine and Chris do not attend. The press (not Hant et similia) is suggesting that CG's decision is due to the fact that he is angry for the mess happened at the Swedish Academy.
As often, the answer from the court is useless...I was expecting something which said that the King is focusing on the Royal Couple and the Crown Princess Couple, as they did before (e.g. the sitting place at the Nobel). But the answer is ambiguous, IMO suggesting that the press may be right.
Then, as you can see (and as Svenskdam writes), the table of the members is almost empty.

This is the answer (from Aftonbladet https://www.aftonbladet.s...tten-av-svenska-akademien):
"I want to say that the king is in place as the Academy's highest protector and crown princess as its next highest protector," said Margareta Thorgren, Head of Information at the Court.
"We look forward to this institution in the long run and hope it will get out of this crisis. It is true that not everyone is in place and it is always a valuation from time to time who will participate. And of course, there are different reasons why not everyone is this time.
We were already aware of the powers the king had to act to move forward in the process. We have been very careful not to act otherwise than permitted," says Margaret Thorgren, who says that the king is now awaiting what is happening to Academy.
[...]
Archbishop Antje Jackelťn told a few days ago that she will not attend the festivities because of how "the Academy and some members have profiled themselves". "I simply can not express my solidarity by participating," she says to DN."

CG may be an awful human being but I do think he did an excellent job of preparing Vic for her future role.

Whilst I do think that Vic is ready for the role, I absolutely agree with you that her remaining in her current role is in the best interests for her family, which is what is really important.  Star

Whatís happening at the academy ?

Yes, Iím not sure I followed that....

It is linked to the "sexual scandal" at the Academy earlier this year. In April, three members of the academy board resigned in response to a sexual-misconduct investigation involving author Jean-Claude Arnault, husband of  Katarina Frostenson, which is a board member. He was accused by at least 18 women of sexual assault and harassment (then, it was said that also Victoria has become embroiled - as a victim- in the sexual harassment scandal. I remember that even here in Italy the story about Victoria was told in the most important daily TV news).
In May CG amended the rules of the academy and made it possible for members to resign. The new rules also state that a member who has been inactive in the work of the academy for more than two years can be asked to resign (which was forbidden before). This is why you see all the empty seats at the table...few members decided to stay in the Academy. However if I have understood it correctly, some new members may enter next year. Svenskdam pointed out how the atmosphere this year was really different at the gathering.

Because of the scandal the Nobel Prize for Literature this year was not given, as you have probably noted.

Arnault has now been convincted to 2.5 years in prison on two accounts of rape.
Frostensson also leaked the name of the nobel laureates in litterature to Arnault several times.
The academy are still investigating the matter and is working to get Frostensson removed from the academy. This scandal has been huge here in Sweden and it's ongoing.
