Those rumours canīt be taken seriously. Just DN jumped seriously on the "news" from the republican movement. The polls on this issue werenīt made under scientific conditions.
Usually I donīt give much for the news from Expressobladet. But I would say in their two online-polls with about 70% "support" for a future crown princess Victoria can be trusted more than in the other two polls in DN.
BTW I guess you have meant "CG" (Carl Gustaf)?

Good question, say CG is the last monarch of Sweden , what will happen to the remaining royals?

But i doubt the Swedish Monarchy will end, they don't rule the land, they are just head of state in a sense, the government rules..

Question The throne

If CG is the last reiging monarch will the other Swedish Royals be allowed to continue to live in Sweden?

Knowing that the Royal houses, which stopped to reign, had to go after revolts and/or in disgrace after wars (which they have more or less caused) one canīt say, how it would be handled, when a Monarch would have to abdicate out of a democratic decision. I guess they would be allowed to stay.
But one can never say, how this all will be in the future. Maybe Europe (knocking on wood and hoping that not) would be in a terrible war 100 years from now and borders and systems would be new defined after it.
Personally I donīt believe in an abolishment in the next 50 years...at least not under democratic conditions. Ppl usually donīt kick their national heritage and traditions with feet, when they enjoy peace and wealthiness. At least I canīt think of such a case in history.

Most workers in Sweden are already on holiday at the time of Victorias birthday, so I think making her birthday a national holiday would be unessesary

The name days and bithdays of The King and his consort Queen Silvia and the Heir, Crown Princess Victoria, are public flag days in Sweden. They will never be public holidays in the sense that people get off work, that is only for the major holidays during the year.

Recall, NJRedDevils, that the national holiday, June 6th, was only for the first time a day off from work this year. So the chance of the birthday becoming a day off from work, is quite slim like GrandDuchess noted.

A public flag day means that all public and official buildings in Sweden fly the flag, as well as all public spaces (like buses, squares, parks etc). And of course the private individuals who have a flagstaff can fly the flag as well if they choose to do so.

Just in case, anybody is interested, July 14th is also the nameday for the name "Folke" which incidentally is one of the Kingīs names as well. And that name comes from the most famous Folke of them all, Folke Bernadotte, his great uncle.
