I wasn't anywhere near Vatican City nor the Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace the past two days. But I had my share of paying homage to the Pope and getting a glimpse of the royalty (the Swedish monarchs, not the British royals).
At St. Peter's Square in Vatican (December 2005)
Visiting the tomb of Pope John Paul II (December 2005)
Changing of the Guards at Kungliga Slottet or The Royal Palace of Stockholm
during the National Day (June 6, 2007).
It was also around this time when we got our chance to get inside the palace
since it was open to the public.
The Drottningholm Palace
King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of the Kingdom of Sweden
and their children Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine.
