Royal Finances - Sveriges Kungahus
SEK 65 million is just the Court Administration budget, which covers, as explained before, the King's Household, the Queen's Household, Crown Princess Victoria's household, and the Royal Mews. A roughly equal amount (SEK 62.5 million) is further allocated for maintenance of the Royal Palaces and the Royal Collection. The Royal Djugården administration is, on the other hand, a separate self-funded public trust whose revenue comes from commercial rents and leases, but, unlike the Crown Estate in the UK or the Donation Royale in Belgium, is a department of the Royal Court.

What I find most surprising is that, in addition to all of the above, the Finance Department of the Royal Court also manages , according to its website, the personal finances of the Royal Family, which is odd in my opinion.

I suppose we live in a world today where some people feel because certain people are public figures that their expenses need to be justified and this may be true in the case if you supposedly live on tax payers money ( I am not Swedish but I have the most respect for Swedish people and their laws so I men nobody any offense by any means) but I do think that anything private where that money goes what they do it with it doesn't deserve to be looked at.


I don't understand the Appange issue lately that came up with the king's two youngest children. Was this topic even discussed 10-20 years ago? Probably not. Today seems far more focused on knowing more than maybe we are entitled to know.

An article about the portfolios of the royal family.
The court's chief financial officer Jan Lindman emphasizes that equity portfolios is only one of several asset classes in the royal family's wealth.
- We are trying to balance the risks by having different asset classes, like the equity and fixed income funds. It is planned for long term and quite traditional.
It is no coincidence that much of the royal family's equity investment are in Swedish shares.
- What the royal family does in this is to invest in Swedish equities because they believe in Sweden, says Lindman.
Lindman has the authority to buy and sell shares. The royal family is informed only afterwards if the stores.
- Since the royal family in general, especially the king, are very well informed about things in society through their positions and through the contacts they have in the business world, they are not personally informed decisions on individual stocks. The type of decision I take individually. I inform them afterwards, he says.

Is that the capital income after taxes or before taxes ? When converted to US$ dollars, it is actually a modest income (only the king's income is above 1 million dollars for instance).

In documents that Expressen has noted, it appears that the court wants the government to allocate almost SEK 55 million to increase the security of the Royal Palace.
The security around the court doesn't "no longer match the requirements that should be met". The threat scenario towards the Royal Palace, where King Carl Gustaf and the other members of the Royal Family have their workplace, is identified as "most acute".
This is evidenced by a document sent to the Ministry of Finance, where the Marshal of the Realm Svante Lindqvist and the Governor of the Royal Palaces Staffan Larsson request that the government allocates almost SEK 55 million to increase security at the Royal Palace.
The document shows that the court now conducts a systematic security work where the need of the security and protection is reviewed. The process will take several years - and the court says that they will return annually with suggestions on how to strengthen the security of their work.
"This year, the focus has been on safety at the Royal Palace in Stockholm, when the threat scenario to workplace of the Head of state was identified as most acute. The reason is partly the changing threat scenario that is found against public goals, and partly that it has been a long time since the Palace was invented in terms of physical security", says the document.
The cost of raising the security is estimated at SEK 54.9 million in four years. The Royal court wants 51 million to be given to The National Property Board, which is property manager for the Palace, while SEK 3.9 million is to be distributed to the court in order to increase security.
"It is the wish of the Royal court that the necessary resources are made available so that the security of the Head of state can be guaranteed", the court writes in the letter.
Lena Westin, the Senior Adviser at the Ministry of Finance, said that the request for more money was not included in the court's budget foundation to 2018, sent in March.
- The budget process has already been going on for a long time. It is very urgent in such cases if a positive decision can be made. We must look at what possibilities there are.
"This appeal is about increasing the security of the royal Palaces (which are open for public), ie the Palaces owned by The National Property Board. It should not be blended with the annual allocation to the Royal court, states the Governor of the Royal Palaces Staffan Larsson in an email to Expressen.
When do you hope that the money will be suppllied?
"It is important that the safety work is taken seriously. With this appeal, the process of raising the security around the Palace together with The National Property Board is under way."
Larsson also writes that the king is kept informed about the safety work at the Palace.
"The king is informed of the major overall security issues."

That smells of a request for more alarms and more cameras and measures against road-bombs used to crash into buildings.

The palace in Stockholm is large, with way too many entrances and other ways to get in and there is probably not enough sentries as it is today.

The palaces outside Stockholm are even more vulnerable IMO.
