Princess Christina’s Jewellery Stolen from Palace Apartment

  June 14, 2012 at 5:45 am by

Princess Christina has been the victim of theft recently, as a number of her jewels were stolen from her apartment at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.

The jewels were stolen by a 19-year-old friend of the Princess’s husband, Mr Tord Magnuson, who was being mentored by Magnuson. According to Aftonbladet, the man also lived with the couple briefly in their Palace apartment. He reportedly sold the jewellery to two men in April, as well as throwing Princess Christina’s diamond and pearl tiara into the Stockholm River in May, after finding the keys to the couple’s safe.

Among the items stolen are the aforementioned tiara, valued at approximately 350,000SEK, and worn by the Princess at the 2011 Nobel Prize banquet; a braided bracelet featuring a medallion bearing the face of Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia given to the Princess during the Emperor’s state visit in 1956; gold cufflinks belonging to King Gustaf VI Adolf, valued at approximately 30,000SEK; and an aquamarine and gold ring inherited from Princess Sibylla and once belonging to Princess Helena of Waldeck and Pyrmont.

The Swedish media reports that the total estimated value of the stolen jewels totals a minimum of 850,000SEK (just under 100,000€).

Divers have not been able to locate and recover the tiara from the Stockholm River.

A police investigation is still underway to locate the two men who bought the stolen jewels.

    What outrageous news!
    I wish the Swedish police would manage to find the lost tiara and the rest of the jeweleries.
    Shame on the “friend” who turned out to be a miserable thief.
    Sorry to the Princess who became the victim of her personal trust.

  2. What is the cynical adage? “No good deed goes unpunished.” But. how nice of the royal couple to “mentor” the thief!

    The “Divine Right of Kings” bestows the authority to rule unto the Great Families and Houses; it also confers blessings and vindication. A thousand successes in Great Sweden’s efforts to restore, not only the materials lost, but also the confidence in; and continued faith that the mentor/patronage tradition is still cherished and deeply loved by those who live to serve The Great Families.

    That ‘mentoring’ business sounds rather odd to me.

    What a shame ! That is what happens when you trust the wrong person, and you never know they are the wrong person often times, until it is too late. I hope they find the Princess’s tiara…..what a shame !

    Things that are not in this article is that it was a child-immigrant that the Princess’s husband mentored. At the time of the theft the “boy” stayed over at the apartment whilst the Princess was away on a trip.

    There is something fishy in this story…
