Aftonbladet's royal expert Jenny Alexandersson said today at podcast "Kungligt med Jenny Alexandersson", that king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia flew yesterday to New York. She said that the calendar of the king and queen is empty until the beginning of February. It is exciting, it is a private trip or perhaps something to do with World Childhood Foundation's 20th anniversary, Childhood has a big office in USA, Alexandersson was guessing.

At the moment queen Silvia has her next work event at the court's calendar on 5th February, her latest work event was on 16th January.
King Carl Gustaf has his next work event on 9th February. He had work events on 21st January.

EDIT Svensk Damtidning writes that Aftonbladet was the first to tell about the trip to New York, and that the calendars of the king and queen are empty until February.

"Everything about this US journey is so very secret so far.
Much still tells us that the unexpected New York visit is somehow work-related. The royal couple are known for their high job pace and would hardly plan a long vacation almost immediately after the long holidays.
At the same time, Queen Silvia's charity organization the World Childhood Foundation turns 20 years, which of course will be highlighted both in Sweden and the United States. A great charity dinner at restaurant Tyrol in Stockholm will be in two weeks, while it has been quiet about how the celebration in the US should go.
Svensk Damtidning seeks the director of the press department Margareta Thorgren.

Aftonbladet's royal expert Jenny Alexandersson writes today at her blog that king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia have landed in Sweden after their trip to USA. Last night, Swedish time, they stepped on a plane in Los Angeles and now they are back home in Stockholm. It was January 23 that they flew to New York.

The Royal Court informed this morning that the King had to pull out of the the Bishop Service at Uppsala on Sunday because of the heavy cold he has been suffering. They said that his schedule for the rest of the week is unaffected.

Maybe wise considering the trip to Brussels tomorrow and Wednesday. Speaking of that, wonder if they will call upon King Philippe and Queen Mathilde while in Brussels.

I hope Carl Gustaf makes a speedy recovery. I agree that the decision seems like a wise plan especially since colds can be more serious for elderly people.

Historian Herman Lindqvist tells at his column in Svensk Damtidning, that king Carl Gustaf got his first National Geographic Magazine when he was ten years old. The king has told Lindqvist that he has saved every monthly magazine after that, and now he has 750 National Geographic Magazines.
When Carl Gustaf was young, he had his grandfather's brother prince Wilhelm in Stenhammar, with whom he talked about travelling, Wilhelm had been at long expeditions in Africa and South America when he was young.
King Carl Gustaf's dream was to become a kind of explorer, travel there where no one has ever been and make the journey without a follow-up of bodyguards, functionaries and a watch and day program in the hand, smashing photographers and people he must meet which he really did not want to see at all. Now, after forty-six years as a king, he has seen most corners of the world. He has conducted 82 state visits and with all trips to the Olympics, exhibitions and campaigns for Sweden plus all his own highly private trips, he has been in far over 100 countries. It is the nature and the animals that attract him most of all, the only weapon he wants with him is his camera.

It gives the sense that the King was/is somehow ill at ease with the constant public interest, in contrast to his wife and older daughter. I wonder if his childhood dream in combination with his nature tourism had an effect on his enthusiastic support of environmental issues.
