Over the past few months we've seen plenty royal reports & heaps of pics of the Swedish King celebrating his 40rth Jubilee. HM and Queen Silvia toured the country and visited each and every County as well as there were many other special commemorative events in which all members of the Royal Family took part.
There is a very special book, created & published especially for this very occasion and it really, really is a treasure . Full of pics and all captions are by the King, who adds a very personal, nice & humourous touch to it all.
This is the frontcover of the book which also contains a full overview over all State Visits as well as a family tree and plenty more useful info!!
BTW, one of the anecdotes the King tells in this book is when the picture below was taken at the time of Princess Madeleine's christening.
During the reception the proud parents weren't looking for a few moments, but when turning around noticed Victoria and Carl-Philippe were giving baby Madeleine in her cradle some very forceful swings .....
The official photo however is a very sweet one and only shows a glimmer of a hint of what happened earlier on
* The book can be ordered at royal bookshop Van Hoogstraten in The Hague, where the ladies will be very pleased to help you !!
