Queen Silvia doubles up the tiara appearances in Germany

So I survived my first big hurricane. I was not in one of my city’s evacuation zones and Matthew’s damage was not as severe as I had planned and prepared for – just minimal tree debris. I didn’t even lose power like I thought I would and didn’t need to dip into my power outage stash (though other parts of the city lost power). Thankfully the eye stayed a good 40-50 miles off shore, but the storm surge was still significant for the beaches, and the beach communities farther down the coast. I consider myself very lucky that I did not sustain much damage. Other areas along the coast sustained significant damage and flooding, and nearly 900 people were killed in Haiti. The Weather Channel has a good list of relief organizations if you would like to help out the communities affected by Hurricane Matthew.

Here’s just a quick pick-me-up post because looking at tiaras makes me happy. King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia were on a State Visit to Germany from October 5-8.

The Swedish Royal Family decided to do a Summer photocall at Solliden Palace this year. They usually don’t do a Summer photocall the way the Danish and Dutch royal families do but here we are. The entire family participated in the photocall which took place last Friday, the day after Victoria Day.
