... are these in Germany during World War 2?
The second one is in Malmö in 1935. The first one is at Karlberg in 1941.

Some pictures of Gustav Adolf with his first wife Margareth of Connaught, the mother of all his five children (Louise never had a child except a stillborn daughter) and the grandmother of King Carl XVI of Sweden and Queen Margarethe II of Denmark.
Gustav Adolf and Margareth on the island of Capri outside Naples in Italy in the spring of 1905. The photo is taken by Gustav Adolf's mother Crown princess Victoria, who loved both the island of Capri and taking photographs.
Gustav Adolf and Margareth visiting her family in England. In the picture, we see Margareth's father Duke Arthur of Connaught, a son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, her mother Duchess Louise of Connaught, born as a princess of Prussia, and her sister Patricia and her brother Arthur.
Gustav Adolf and Margareth with their son Gustav Adolf, our current king's father.
The royal house of Sweden in 1907.

Does anyone have any evidence of Gustaf VI Adolf's opinions about Silvia (the present-day Queen of Sweden)? She and King Carl XVI Gustaf met in 1972, a year before the old king died, so he must have heard about her, even though the relationship was kept a secret in the beginning. Obviously, he didn't care much for letting non-royals inte the family, but has anyone actually seen or heard about a comment or remark he made?

I don´t think it is known if he knew about it or not. I saw an interview many years ago with our current king where he said his grandfather wasn´t against that the prince´s had relationships with non royals. It was marry them he was against. He admonished his grandson many times to handle his relationships more discreetly Apparently it was only for the princes he was against non royal marriages as he accepted Princess Margareta, Desiree and Christinas marriages to their non royal husbands. He died before Christinas wedding but Christina has said that he knew about it and wasn´t against it.

It was okay for the princesses to marry non-royal men, because they didn't have a place in the sucession anyway (so the new succession of 1980, where the crown prince suddenly was stripped of his title in favor of his sister, was a really radical change). But I don't see what the problem was with princes marrying non-royal women either. I guess it was a very old tradition, that couldn't be broken until the 1970s.
