A video from yesterday:
Mattias Sandberg from Aftonbladet got a little interview from the king at the scout event.
He said about the christening:
- It's a pretty big christening ceremony and with it there is much to be prepared and planned. We are in full swing.
- It is rather a planning history that I think it is now anyway. But we look forward to all the guests we have invited. It will be very nice I hope.
But the king does not need to wait a month to celebrate with his family. Already on Monday, he has his 66th birthday and will traditionally be celebrated at the Royal Palace.
How the king prepares for that?
- I do not know if you have to prepare as much after all these years. It will pretty much the same as usual. But it is nice.
In total, over 300 scouts gathered outside on a rainy and windy Djurgården. The king was in great spirits and happily participated in the cleaning.
- It's fun for the young people when they find a bunch of junk. The key is that the Scouts go back to his parents and tell that should not throw things in nature, said the king.

Johan T Lindwall from Expressen was also there, he tells that the king was in a very good mood, he posed with italian scouts, who took part to the event. The scouts are grateful for the king about his participation, it means much to some of the young scouts to be able to shake hands with the king, said one scout leader. Maybe Estelle will be a scout too, it's up to Victoria and Daniel.

It would have been nice if the king had said something about Estelle and the joy of being a grandfather for the first time...
