Between 1947 and 1957, the family lived in São Paulo, Brazil. There she attended
the Colégio Visconde de Porto Seguro also called the German School.

After School, Silvia started to work in the Argentine Consulate in Munich. Later
she worked as host during the 1972 Summer Olympics. There she met her Prince:
Carl Gustaf of Sweden. 

Well, it is clearly that I chose for Queen Silvia as topic of my Weekend Special.
She celebrated her 70th. B-Day earlier this Week and I haven't paid attention
yet to her.This Weekend Special will continue on this blog.

I wish you all a great Saturday and a good Weekend.
