Although the royal calendar is not updated for 2017 yet, Margareta Thorgren confirmed to Expressen that king Carl Gustaf will attend at Folk och Försvar's Annual National Conference (Rikskonferensen) on it's second day, 9th January. Sweden's total defense is on the day's agenda. The conference is the foremost meeting-place for the Swedish security and defence policy community. The conference is held each year in January in Sweden. Folk och Försvar (Society and Defence) is a politically and religiously independent association of democratic nationwide organisations in Sweden.

King Carl Gustaf attended today at Folk och Försvar (Society and Defence) National Conference in Sälen.
The king commented the death of Ulf Dinkelspiel, a close friend to him and the whole Royal Family:
- I got the news just as well, a few minutes ago. It's very sad. He has done many good services, and the families are good friends, so we've known him for many years, he says to Expressen.
The king continued:
- But now we are here for this conference, which is also important for Sweden. I think it is good that we can speak openly and take this debate further. Of course it is important for me and for the whole Sweden. I have been here for some times previously and it is exciting to be back.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia attended a piano concert at the Gripsholm Castle on Wednesday evening.

IBL Bildbyrå

- The king and queen met with the Board of Gripsholm Association and talked with them. Then they have come here to the Hall to listen to a great piano concerto. The king and queen are very involved in what is happening on the royal palaces, and are both very interested in music, says Timmy Cox, First Supervisor at Gripsholm Castle.
The reason for the piano concerto was that Gripsholm Castle got a new grand piano, called a "Steinway piano".
- For six or seven years ago the Gripsholm Association donated a grand piano to the castle for the simple reason that we have a very rich music program here. The grand piano was great, but not world class, says Timmy Cox."
Now The Gripsholm Association, which is an organization whose task is to promote the business at Gripsholm Castle, has got money, which made it possible to purchase a Steinway piano.
- It is a royal palace and we have world-class artists here. Then we thought it was appropriate to have a grand piano that matches the castle and our artists, says Timmy Cox.
What does it mean that the royal couple is here on an evening like this?
- It's great that king and queen visit the royal palaces. It means a lot to us that they are here for a night like this.

On Thursday evening king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia went to Villa Bonnier to a dinner hosted by Urban Ahlin, the Speaker of the Parliament.
Expressen's reporter Elias Giertz met the king and queen outside Villa Bonnier. Giertz asked queen Silvia: What really happened and how the queen is feeling today?
- Thank you, how kind of you to ask. That's really good. Sometimes you have a little slump which then goes over. Now I feel very good.
Silvia also took the opportunity to address a greeting to the staff who were by her side during the two days at Danderyd Hospital:
- It was nice! It was very great staff at Danderyd who really took care. I want to thank them again.

King Carl Gustaf to Expressen:
- We've been here a number of times before and have been invited by the Speaker. It's very nice to come back here. It is not the first time and it's very nice. We talk about everything that we have the opportunity for which there is interest in the different parties. There is nothing specific we shall discuss, but it is informal.
Speaker Urban Ahlin told of the plan for the dinner when he arrived a few moments before the royal couple.
- There is a dinner for parliamentary administration staff with me as Speaker of the Parliament, where we meet the court's staff together with the king and queen. We're talking about events we attended together, such as the Opening of the Parliament, National Day celebrations and incoming visits of the Speakers of the Parliament. How we will do this year. It's many activities we do together and it's simply the ones we should take up. We have constantly changed the Opening of the Parliament in different ways and National Day celebrations as well. We do new things every year so we have ideas even for tonight's discussion.
