Today's Pic: Silvia Speaks

I recently watched a royal television show that called Diana Princess of Wales the last of the silent stars because she conveyed her public persona more through images than words. She actually delivered relatively few speeches. Once she did speak, it was explosive: bulimia, land mines and don't forget that Martin Bashir article!

Royals today have to be a bit more vocal in their official duties as Queen Silvia of Sweden demonstrated today delivering a speech in Vilnius, Lithuania. In this photo she seems tiny and totally isolated--that's how many people feel when speaking in public, but today's royal ladies can't afford to be shy. But, they also try not to be outspoken.
