How did Carl Gustaf and Silvia meet?

Thought this was interesting, especially the footage in Swedish: Chance Royal Meetings: Olympic Edition Part Two « The Royal Post

does anyone know anymore about the circumstances of their meeting at the Olympics??

Siliva Sommerlath was one of the senior/more important hostesses at the Olympic Games in Münich and as such she worked as a hostess for several V.I.P.:s, one of them was the then crown prince Carl Gustav of Sweden. He saw her in the V.I.P. lounge, she noticed him looking at her through binoculars even if she was sitting just a few metres away. Carl Gustav asked Siliva for a date and that's how it began.

Is there any more information on Carl Gustaf and Silvia in the early years? How did she adjust to being Queen, what was her reaction to him being a Prince, did Carl Gustaf almost buckle under his grandfather wanting him to marry royalty or was he determined to be with Silvia... I need a Swedish tabloid inspired book about this couple.

I think that Carl Gustaf's grandfather would have definitely had a problem with him marrying a commoner and would not have approved the marriage. My guess is that Gustaf VI Adolph's disapproval was not a big barrier because he died a year after Carl Gustaf and Silvia met, Carl Gustaf proposed to Silvia after he'd been on throne for 2.5 years.
