"As a mother and grandmother, I know how important for children to want to give an opportunity to read, to open the way into literature. Books are also as bridges. In Sweden it is very important that all children have access to books. The children need books, not just the Internet, as good literature gives the child a place in the world, and the world finds it's place for children".

Looking at the picture and many others throughout the years, I wonder if Carl Gustaf occasionally feels unease about being so short according to (northern) European standards.

I say that because, being also short myself, it bothered me somewhat, especially when I was younger. I am not of northern European origin or a king though...

The king and queen made an exception and talked with the swedish and lithuanian press. They usually don't do that with the press at a state visit (In Finland they made an exception too). The king wanted that also the swedish journalists spoke english so that everyone understood and as many questions as possible could be handled at that short time.

The king calls for a dialogue between Sweden and Russia.
- Only if one can keep a dialogue open between the countries that have eliminated much, he says.
Concerns about Vladimir Putin have been high on the agenda during the royal couple's state visit to Lithuania.
- We have obviously discussed it with the president.
The King also responded to the question why it is so important to have good relations with the countries around the Baltic Sea:
- We'll try to have relationships with all the countries. I have visited many countries that are of interest to Sweden, it is obviously important both politically and for the business community. We have good relationships.
In Lithuania, many appreciate the close cooperation with Sweden, according to the King.
- Both politicians, the population and countries feel that there is a neighboring country that wants to be with and help and support.
During the press conference the king commented also the large flow of refugees to Europe.
- It is a big challenge for all of us. We must pull together to take care of all the people coming. They suffer a lot and many carry traumatic experiences in their home countries. People don't leave their country if they don't have to. It is the most important issue right now.
The fact that Sunday is time for a new royal baptism in Drottningholm Church the royal couple commented:
- We are getting pretty used to it, so everything goes according to the program. I have checked everything, and everything is absolutely perfect, said the king.
The Queen, however, wanted to clarify:
- We are very happy. It is very special when a grandchild will be baptized. It is very important to us. It is not just a family gathering, it is also very important.
