Expressen's royal commentator Karin Lennmor writes in her chronicle about the king's birthday.
Lennmor writes that the celebration is traditional and hopefully we will see many of the king's grandchildren.
The king turns 72 and if Lennmor is guessing right, the private celebration this year is quite muted. Last week, it was actually a bigger anniversary when King Carl Gustaf became the ruler who sat the longest time at the Sweden's throne, of all 69 kings! But even this celebration became easy - on Thursday the king sat on a plane heading home from Japan.
Lennmor's tip is that the royal family saves on the festivities. In December, Queen Silvia turns 75 and then it will be a great celebration! The Queen's birthday will be the year's great anniversary, with great dinner for relatives, friends, and royal guests. Lennmor has heard that the party fixer is ​​already appointed and that the planning is in full swing.
It is said that 70 is the new 50, and Lennmor actually thinks Sweden has a strong and vital king. He still jogs easily away from his aide-de-camps at his jogging rounds in Drottningholm and Solliden. He still likes to party. He still goes skiing, rages down the slopes.
Lennmor's tip is that Queen Silvia and Crown Princess Victoria are planning a family surprise for the Walburgis night. The royal family likes pranks, surprises and "practical jokes" ... and they also love masquerade, but maybe it's a bit too much to make a family masquerade on 72th birthday.
The king obviously receives gifts from the Swedish people for every birthday. Everything is registered in an elegant folder, where the king can also choose what he wants to pick up from the Palace's storage, where the presents are kept.
The official Sweden and the business community aren't making any major upheavals this year. But otherwise, the king actually wants money! Money in the form of grants and donations to the royal foundations, the scout movement or charity projects, of course.
But within the family, one usually likes to be quite moderate with birthday presents. This is a wealthy family which can buy in principle what it wants. But instead, there are small, thoughtful, simple and humorous gifts that are most appreciated. You know, type Buttericks stuff. And from the grandchildren, of course something custom made.
Another thing that is a little tradition for the king for the birthday - to take the premiere trip with the boat! Thumbs up that the weather allows it.
Lennmor saw one old black and white movie clip from 1976, when the king celebrated his 30th birthday at Stockholm Palace. In spite of the crowds, it looked so miserable alone, where he stood at Borggården alone. In one of the palace windows, Miss Silvia Sommerlath stood and waved ... there were only months left for their wedding ...
But today - 42 years later - he can be delighted with a great lovely royal family with both children and grandchildren.
So congratulations to the king today!
We are waiting with excitement at this year's party in December when the Queen celebrates her birthday.

Svensk Damtidning reports live from the courtyard. The tradition of this kind of celebration was started when the king, then the crown prince, was 23 years old. The family had a private lunch today, tells Svensk Damtidning.
https://www.svenskdam.se/2018/04/liv...in-fodelsedag/

The court has wanted to keep as a secret who will attend in addition to the King and queen. "We will see", said information officer Johan Tegel.

Is there a reason as to why Prince Carl Philip takes a more prominent role at the Kings annual birthday over the Crown Princess?

Carl Philip is Naval Reserve Officer, rank of Major. King Carl Gustaf wants Carl Philip to accompany him in the military part of the celebration. Carl Philip attends also with the king for instance at the commemoration of Veterans' Day.

The swedish press has written, that Madeleine will stay in Sweden with her children until Adrienne's christening. So far I haven't seen any comments that Madeleine isn't in Sweden.

According to Svensk Damtidning, Estelle's nails are yellow and black, which are the colours of her favourite sports club AIK. Daniel is an AIK fan, and he and Estelle have been seen at AIK matches. Svensk Damtidning contacted AIK's Communications Manager Gabriel Niklasson, who sounded pleased
- That AIK and the royal house belong together, it's no secret. And that it seems to be inherited in generations is of course great fun. Estelle and Daniel are always welcome to our matches.
So you're not surprised at Princess Estelle's Nail Polish?
- No, not at all!

Because Carl Philip has a military rank, whereas the Crown Princess does not.

Keep in mind that the King of Sweden is no longer the commander in chief of the Swedish armed forces. Having ascended the throne before the coming into force of the Instrument of Government of 1974, Carl XVI Gustaf still holds the highest ranks in all branches of service, but his children do not. Victoria cannot be made an honorary "colonel" of a regiment as Princess Anne or Prince Edward for example. Carl Philip has a rank by his own merit.

Great photos

I love seeing Estelle and Oscar. Total opposites. She is such a bubbly happy personality. He is so serious. I love the photo of her trying to get him to smile. And I love her team nail polish as well.

Yes i a gree it is a oity that we don't see the other grandchildren of the King and Pricness madeleine if she is there. In a few pics Princess Sofia could be seen standing behind the other royals. If the window is to small for all of them to stand there the could id do like in Denmark and let the other royals stand and one of the nearby windwos.

Information officer Irene Beertema Strömmer from the court told to Hänt Magazine, that Madeleine and Chris aren't in Sweden now and that is why they didn't attend at the King's birthday celebration.

Previously Margareta Thorgren told that Madeleine and Chris would stay in Sweden for the most of the spring and do even some work events.

I loved the photos from Carl Gustaf's birthday; thank you to all those who shared them.
I don't blame Estelle for squeezing Oscar's cheeks. I'd find it hard to resist, too I loved the interactions between her and her mother and grandmother. She's a lovely little girl and cute to see her wearing ribbons in the Swedish colours.
I also loved the photo of the little boy meeting Carl Gustaf on the tricycle - I can imagine that will be a photo his family will like to embarrass him with when he's older
