The members of the royal house of Sweden have been quite active these past few weeks so here is a short wrap-up of what they have done so far.
First, on October 12, 2011, T.M.s King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia visited Västmanland (a rough translation):
Their majesties day began in Köping where Governor Ingemar Skogö met up and welcomed the King and Queen. This was followed by a morning where the King and Queen briefed on important issues in Västmanlandslän, including the business community and the talent. Then followed a program of car museums in Köping where Per-Olof Johansson, who is chairman of the Automotive and Technology Historical Society showed round.
After lunch came the King and Queen to the ABB high school where the King and Queen had the opportunity to meet students and get a tour. Then there was a visit to the Automation Center which is part of Västerås Science Park, where business and academia can meet. The royal couple were asked to see samples of industrial robots that can perform elderly care in the home.
This was followed by a presentation on the integration of the countries in which employees from both the County Board, Housing and Municipal Commissioner told us about their work. The evening ended with a dinner at Västerås castle with the governor as a host.
This afternoon, October 13, King Carl XVI Gustaf and H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria attended a symposium on the Royal National City Park held at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm. To view photos please click here.
