If the allegations are true, I don't think that the problem is stupidity. There seems to be a huge sense of entitlement there as well as a lack of honestly and loyalty.

Neither was Queen Elizabeth herself when she took the throne at age 25

I think Victoria would be capable, and she seems to be pretty well loved.

The circumstances of why Queen Elizabeth ascended the throne at age 25 are far different than the circumstances would be if Victoria were to ascend the throne in the immediate future. One cannot compare the death of a beloved monarch with the abdication of a shamed monarch.

More comparable would be George VI's unexpected ascension upon Edward VIII's abdication.

There are such a few Monarchs in Europe and an Abdication of the King of Sweden for personal affairs would be bad.
In Belgian The KIng only him not his Consort is above the Laws.
Leopold III choice to abdicate because during a Manifestation for «*la Question Royale*» 3 persons sadly died at Grace H. (Walonia).

I wonder how much is true and how much is driven by a business desperate to make sells. I am not saying there is not genuine cause for concern. My feeling is about wether the media is doing its job by trying to get the truth or are they just doing it for money.

Lettstrom says he 'lied to the criminals out of fear' and was not acting on behalf of the King.

This is good news for the king. However, one niggling question reminds, to my mind: If there was absolutely no possibility of there being a genuine picture "out there", why did the king's friend negotiate with a gangster to get a hold of it?

Until the book of Mille Markovic is published, we just have to wait, if there are different photos. Markovic showed yesterday unmanipulated photos to Aftonbladet and said that they will be published later.

Hmmm, very strange.... why is he showing MANIPULATED pic first and later claims, he has another UNMANIPULATED pics, which he wants to show in this book..... makes no sense at all..... he must know, that they will be comprehensively examined.....
Really nonsense, this behaviour!

i undertand your point. but lets imagine if this issues just get worse and worse as years pass and the King's image is so damaged to the point of his own population hating him and waiting to him to abdicate. will he really abdicate the throne to Victoria? even if he would do that, he will need to wait for Victoria's children to be big enough to elevate the royal status and duties such as the baby to come to be the next crown prince(ss)

To anyone who lives in Sweden has this whole affair business died down? In America we of course get no information about Sweden or the monarchy so all I have to go by is this board.
I have been lead to believe that personal lives don't dictate whether a person should of shouldn't keep their job like it does in the U.S.

I know much of the fuss has now died down but I think there was never any real possibility of the King Abdicating. Look at hwo unpopular Queen Victoria of GB was at parts of her reign or QE2 was after Diana died. I think the Swedish Court would always just work on until these incidents were forgotten.
However I don't see why they would have had to wait for Victoria's children to be older, Victoria and Daniel could have taken over most of the duties with support from the rest of the family. I'm sure Silvia could have carried on had she wanted to and Carl Philip could have taken over more duties.
I'm not saying there would have been an abdication but I don't think that would have been a reason to stop it.

With counselling and a strong desire of both parties married couples can move on and re-capture the love that was the reason they got married in the first place. There has never been any indication that the king has had more than the one infidelity and although it certainly happened some of the "facts" turned out to be false and/or non-existing.

It appears the King and Queen has moved on and their relationship seems harmonious and they certainly spend lots of time alone travelling just the two of them. Congratulations to them for being willing to do the very hard work of working through the difficult times and again enjoy their many years of relationship.

Daniel Webb tells in his book (and Aftonbladet writes about it) that the king partied with an unknown mafia boss Dragan Joksovic in early spring in the mid 90's.
In his book "Livvakten/The Bodyguard" Daniel Webb describes how the mafia boss and club owner, Dragan Joksovic, said to him: "Can you be here as back-up at the door tonight? The king comes here." A few hours later, the head of state came in the company of Joksovic through the door between their SAPO-guards.
-They had some laughing girls, escort girls, scantily clad ladies, too. So what has been said is true, the king communed with scantily clad ladies, I have seen it myself. Daniel Webb writes in his book that the king, the mafia boss and women were upstairs a few hours.
- But what happened in there, nobody knows. I wanted to my nose in and look a bit more, but it had seemed frivolous. There were no cameras, says Daniel Webb.
