They often spend Easter in their house in Storlien. The King inherited the house from his parents who received it as a wedding gift in 1932.

Do you know if he inherited most or all of his parents' private fortune, or if it was divided amongst their five children?

Dagny Carlsson, Sweden's oldest blogger, celebrated yesterday her 107th birthday. Hänt magazine tells that Dagny writes at her blog:
"Today it has been a memorable day because I have started a new year of life. In other words, I have turned 107 years old. It has not been quiet but it has been courtesy from 12:00 to 16:00", writes Dagny.
"It is with pride that I speak that Queen Silvia sent me a personalized letter of congratulation", writes Dagny Carlsson.

About queen Silvia spending last weekend in Heidelberg with her brother and his family

Queen Silvia saw the castle lighting on board of the "Königin Silvia"
The Swedish monarch extended her stay in Heidelberg. The Weiße-Flotte ship was already booked.
It was a successful completion of her stay in Heidelberg: After Queen Silvia had inaugurated the Childhood House at the University Hospital on Thursday and accepted the Karl-Kübel-Prize in Bensheim on Friday, she extended her stay over the weekend to spend time with the family of her eldest brother Ralf de Toledo-Sommerlath. On the program was also a boat trip with the flagship of the Weiße-Flotte named after the Queen, from which the Monarch looked at the last castle lighting of the year.
Fortunately, it did not rain during the fireworks and the wind conditions were ideal, so that the many thousand visitors on the banks of the Neckar and the royal visit had a good view of the colorful rockets.
"We knew that Queen Silvia would be watching the fireworks, so we discussed in advance with pyrotechnics company Beisel, which is responsible for the fireworks, that we would like to have blue and yellow elements in the fireworks", says the CEO of Heidelberg Marketing, Mathias Schiemer. So the pyrotechnician built two elements in the Swedish national colors in the entree of the spectacle.
Queen Silvia was the guest of the Weiße-Flotte for the third time. The Swedish monarch was on board together with her eldest brother Ralf, her sister-in-law Charlotte and her nephew Thomas Sommerlath and his wife. "When the request came, the ship was already fully booked", reports Karl Hofstätter, Managing Director of the Weiße Flotte.
For the namesake of the ship, the trip was of course made possible and a table for the guests was prepared in the salon. Chef Bruno Merkhoffer served Caesar salad with prawns in a potato stew, beef fillet on red wine jus with potato gratin and fresh market vegetables and for dessert chocolate biscuit with wild berries on mango sorbet and truffles.
The mood was sensational, Hofstätter reports. At the latest when Elke Singer together with the band "Addicted plus" sang Abba hit "Dancing Queen" for the royal guest, the song which was played in honor of the Queen the day before her wedding with King Carl Gustaf in June 1976 in the royal Opera in Stockholm.
"Queen Silvia thanked us for a wonderful evening", says Hofstätter. And the other passengers had been radiant when leaving the ship.

Member of the Swedish Academy and Chinese specialist Göran Malmqvist is dead. He passed away on Friday, 95 years old. A death message that the royal family has received with sadness.
In a statement, the royal couple, via Margareta Thorgren, says:
- The royal family has received the sad news. The royal couple knew Göran Malmqvist personally.
The Royal Family about the support of Göran Malmqvist
- As a China expert, he generously assisted with his knowledge of the country's culture in connection with incoming and outgoing state visits. The royal couple has condoled privately.

Svensk Damtidning:
Emperor Naruhito's coronation in Tokyo was just such a mission, where the date had been decided long ago, and where the Queen had in good time agreed to go to Japan with the King.
But then, with relatively short notice, she chose to step aside, this to give Crown Princess Victoria a chance to meet the Imperial couple and their other royal colleagues in the new generation.
So what does a queen do when she suddenly gets an unexpected gap in the calendar?
- The Queen has other assignments this week. She works with internal duties at the Royal Palace, yes ordinary office work simply, says Margareta Thorgren to Svensk Damtidning.
Does it take place in her office, or does she also work from home in Drottningholm?
- Yes, it is quite obvious that she does.
The queen has last week's extremely intense visit to Lebanon with the Mentor Foundation done. We talked to one of those who saw her in action and he says spontaneously:
- She worked really hard!
So hopefully the canceled Japan trip also became a chance to breathe a little. And maybe get to meet a grandchild or two, completely spontaneously?

Queen Silvia has given an interview to Britt-Marie Mattsson at Göteborgs-Posten. The interview is behind a paywall.
Queen Silvia thinks #metoo is important, and wants a special metoo call where children can tell about sexual abuse and violence they have been subjected to. And she remembers how attendees at a conference in Paris "disappeared into the walls" when she spoke for the first time about child pornography.

She has no intention of leaving her work with her 20-year-old foundation, Childhood, but hopes that Princess Madeleine will one day take over. And she doesn't think that the King's decision about who belongs to "The Royal House" is particularly dramatic.
