Last week’s national day: Svenska flaggans dag. And I was there at Skansen. Didn’t manage to spot the Royals; too much sound equipment between them and me. Vicky was apparently in the United States or Finland. Carl Philip the pinup prince is doing his army service. But pikkuprincessan Madeleine was there with the kongsparet and the press were salivating over her upcoming 18th birthday, since once she’s an adult they will be able to take the gloves off and start stalking her on dates. Everyone enjoyed Alice Bah’s speech and the rock concert that was embedded in the program, in between the various flag routines.
PS 2015: This is still the closest I’ve ever gotten to Allsång på Skansen. One day. Stockholm i mitt hjärta!
