Yes, it appears Sweden is at long last getting a new government. With Löfven as the new/old PM.

What are the formalities regarding the Swedish King, if any, when there is a majority pointing at a new PM?

The King heads the special cabinet council held when there is a change of government, but besides that he has no involvement whatsoever in the forming or approving of a new government.
After the formation a new government the Royal family hosts a dinner for the new government and the new parliament.
This means that there's no shuffling between the House of Parliament and the Royal Palace like Helle's endless parade over the court yard at Amalienborg.

Today, on the King's Name Day (Carl), has the list of medalists for some of the Royal medals been announced.

Interesting this time is that the Seraphim Medal is awarded to the author and Auschwitz survivor Hedi Fried. The medal has only been awarded 14 times since the King's accession in 1973. Also worth noting is that the Olympic gold medalists from Peyongchang 2018 is awarded a medal in size 5 on a blue ribbon.

All medalist could be found here, and the medals are presented in ceremony at the Royal Palace by the King and Queen on February 20th:

Congratulations to Hédi Fried for a well deserved award for her tireless work against racism and for democracy. The pictures of the 94-year old demonstrating against the Nazi rally in Ludvika this summer alone is enough for her to receive my utmost respect.
A very good decision by the King.

Indeed a excellent decision by the King, but somewhat surprising. There is now four living persons, including Hédi Fried, with the Seraphim Medal.

I'd say that although well deserved the award is also politically motivated. Unfortunately we see today that the far-right is on the rise and by highlighting Hédi Fried's work against them and for victims of genocide the King takes a stand and clearly shows where his sympathies lie. Hédi is an inspiration to everyone who is opposed to racism and illiberal ideologies. Seeing photos of her, aged 94, demonstrate against the Nazi rally in Ludvika last summer almost made me cry.
