Here is the annual report for 2010 and it has excellent descriptions about the organization of the royal court.

I know that the staff of Princess Lilian's household is probably not that large (maybe even only Elisabeth Palmstierna, her longtime companion and Marshal of the Court). Palmstierna is also very old and since Lilian's seclusion may already be "retired". But if there are any others, are they still working/working in another office/laid off?
There are several "departments" within the court and the "Household" is one of them. When Victoria ascends the throne the transition will be gradual and orderly. As with any large organization there will not be an drastic change in personnel as experience and expertise is gathered over many years and there would not be practical or logical to replace personnel only because of change in regent.

Over time the staffing will become Victoria's choices but do not expect mass resignations.

Ditto that. Thank you, grevinnan, for the link. It is a wealth of information including the financial breakdowns. I know that the Swedish royal court used to publish a book (?) each year about the events of the Swedish royal family. Do they still do that? And is this document included in it?

Svensk Damtidning writes about the work of Victoria´s adjutants. They are "always ready". They hold her bag and hold all the gifts (flowers, drawings, soft toys ...) which she gets from people at her visits. They take care of her flying tickets. When someone calls to Victoria, it´s the adjutant who answers the phone. One adjutant works a month of the year (she has 12 adjutants, two of them help Carl Phiilp too).
The adjutants follow Victoria and Daniel everywhere: to their honeymoon, to their work, to their holidays, they even run with them when they are jogging. The 55-year-adjutant, who was with Victoria and Daniel on their trip to China last year, said that when he was jogging with V and D, he surely felt that he was 20 years older than Victoria.
When an adjutant is on duty, he/she lives in Haga Palace (or where ever Victoria is). Before 2004 Victoria had only three adjutants, but she got more duties and needed more adjutants. Two of her adjutants, both women, have been with her right from the beginning. The adjutants can get quite close to Victoria and appreciate her humour and modest way to act in different situations.

You are correct. Victoria now has 12 aide de camps that are assigned one month each around the clock, just like the King's aide de camps.

you know that is what is surprising for me, the fact that they rotate. However, thinking about it, even though one month a year seems to me that makes difficult to adjust both for the employers and the employees, it makes sense because following the Princess is a full time job that would prevent anything else in their life and it could be a very damanding and challenging job!
if you guys think or know other reasons why they rotate let me know!

thank you again LadyFinn

These career military officers maintain their military assignments and roles. When they are on duty as aide de camps they are on duty around the clock for one month. The rotation is probably the best way to both maintain career path and not get burned out by the aide de camp assignment. By being twelve of them there is always a deep base of experienced aide de camps and when a change occurs it will not be so disruptive.

Svensk Damtidning writes in it´s paper version, that Victoria´s Marshal of the court, Jörgen Lindström will leave his job at the spring and return to the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. He has been at the leave of absence from there while working for the court.

From the paper version of Svensk Damtidning:
Daniel has a new secretary, Fredrik Brodin. He will work for Daniel when his secretary Therese Sjögren is on her maternity leave. Fredrik Brodin has worked at the European Parliament earlier. Brodin wears Daniel's monogram at his suit always when he is at work. Svensk Damtidning's reporter saw Brodin when he accompanied Daniel on his visit to the Sickla Health Center. They called him for a little interview.
Brodin said: "To be the secretary of the prince is nice! It's also fun. There is a good variety of work and you get to experience different things and events. Last week it was Sickla Health Center and this week a visit to LKAB in Kiruna".
Will we see you at the prince's side now?
"No, it is mainly Karolin A. Johansson who follows the Prince and the Crown Princess at their work events. But sometimes I am there also".

Svensk Damtidning writes on it's cover: Now it is close, Victoria borrows her stylist Tina to Sofia. Svensk Damtidning claims to know that Tina has helped Sofia with jewellery and dresses in some events.
Tina says to SD: I work for the crown princess, but I am helpful to the family and help where the help is needed. Tina has been at the court for five years and enjoys her work very much. She isn't just a stylist but also Victoria's chambermaid. Tina says warmly that she couldn't have a better boss. The best in Victoria is what she is and that she stands for what she does. SD says that Victoria borrows her clothes and helps others? Tina says that it is a good spirit and thought to help others.
But Tina doesn't say that she has helped Sofia, Svensk Damtidning writes so.

Svensk Damtidning has called to Jonas Wallin, who works as a chamberlain at the Haga Palace. He lives there (the article doesn't say in the main building or other building) with his wife and two children. Wallin worked before as a table coverer at the court. Now he takes care of Victoria's and Daniel's home. He takes care of Daniel's clothes and goes shopping for groceries. Wallin is very reticent about his work but says that he is like a housemaster in Downton Abbey. Svensk Damtidning asks if he is the man who buys breakfast flakes for Victoria and Daniel? Wallin laughed and said that it certainly happens sometimes.

Svensk Damtidning wrote a couple of weeks ago about the staff of the court.

The Head of the Crown Princess's Household is the Marshal of the Court, Karolin A. Johansson. She is 32 years old and was appointed to her job in May 2012. Karolin is responsible of Victoria's and Daniel's program from the preparations to the execution. Karolin is often seen with the crown princess couple, always as alert and glad. Before the court Karolin worked as the press secretary of the Minister for Culture and Sport. A. in her name comes from Anna. Karolin lives with Andreas Hamrin in Vasastan.

Victoria's chambermaid (and stylist, like the press wants to call her), is 54-year-old Tina Törnqvist, who has been at her job from 2008. She is a tailor and pattern constructor and has worked both in interior decoration and styling before she started to work for Victoria. Tina "scans" what the designers have to offer and Victoria chooses from them. During working so many years together, Victoria and Tina have become very close. Tina travels often with Victoria on her trips abroad. Outside her work, the mother of three likes to mingle and is often seen at the red carpet on events in Stockholm. Tina lives at the Royal Mews (Hovstallet).

Victoria and Daniel have also both a secretary, but Svensk Damtidning didn't tell about them.

One of Victoria's aide-de camps, Ewa Skoog Haslum, told a little about her work last year. She is the Flotilla Commander 4th Naval Warfare Flotilla.

"Adjutant service is carried out one month / year and now I'm at my fifth year. During my service month I move on Haga and follow HRH Crown Princess Victoria at all activities, trips as well as visits. Everything from coordination with organizers and others to help in speech writing, etc.
It's difficult to leave my regular job but fortunately I have the utmost confidence and am enormously grateful to my talented staff that makes my job in the meantime."

Peter Andersson does Victoria's hairdos quite often, he did Victoria's hairdo on her wedding day.
