When the Finnish State Visit to Sweden began, Queen Silvia was observed with a bloody left eye.

Finnish media revealed that Her Majesty’s eye was quite red and looked bloody as she welcomed Finnish President Alexander Stubb and his wife Suzanne Innes-Stubb to the Royal Palace.

The press department at the Royal Court revealed to Royal News that the Queen’s bloody eye is due to a cold draft.

“The redness in the Queen’s eye was caused by a cold draft,” they said.

Margareta Thorgren, Information Director of the Royal Court, also told Expressen that these cold drafts “can be particularly noticeable during colder months when the temperature difference between the outside and the inside is large.”

She also added that the Queen is doing well.

It did not slow the 80-year-old consort down though. She was hard at work showing the Finnish President and First Lady around Sweden. The State Visit took place from 23-24 April.
