I think that all this issue will be stuck as long as CG is king. Once there is the new accession, many thinks are going to to change, eventuallty.

Still,in her solitude, she is the Queen".

The problem in Sweden, as I see it, is that Carl Philip and Madeleine officially get no public money at all , but, in practice, they are indirectly funded by the King's grant and there is little transparency about how much money they get exactly and what the money is used for. Again, I doubt it is for clothing though.
Actually in Denmark Joachim gets also an own apanage (from which goes a part to Marie) and even Benedikte gets her own money from the State.
I think the Problem in Sweden is that it ist published how much of the money goes to Victoria, to Carl Philip to Madeleine etc. Apparently there is no obligation for the King to publish this detailed and therefore it is not done. And that in recent years he has asked for more money almost every year.
In Spain it is the same way then in Sweden and there is also no obligation to give exact Details. But then they started to give Details at the end of Juan Carlos's reign.

Swedish royal family is a success in the international media.

2016 has been a real jubilee to the Swedish royal family. Two princes have been born, the king celebrated his 70th birthday big and Queen Silvia celebrated this summer 40 years as queen. That there have been many positive developments within the royal family has echoed abroad. According to media monitoring company Meltwater between 1 January and 17 September this year there have been published 25,775 articles and reports about the royal family in the international media. The exposure corresponds to an advertising value of 720 million SEK, according to Meltwater. Prince Oscar's birth in March generated the most editorial posts, but if you look at the reactions at the social media, it is the Crown Princess's birthday that engages the most.

Kemal Alpek, the owner of pizzeria Ciao Ciao Grande, has told to Allt om Stockholm about the members of the royal family eating often at his pizzeria. The pizzeria is close to Östermalmstorg and many well-known Swedes eat there, such as Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Tomas Ledin and Björn Borg.
Daniel and Estelle were seen there in March.

The king and queen visit there now and then. But not as often as their children. Victoria and Carl Philip have eaten there ever since they were children. When they were teenagers they brought along their friends and now they come with their children, many times a month.
- I think they feel at home here, because they will always be left alone. One is always struck by how nice they are, Victoria is always so cute, Alpek says.
Carl Philip's first choice is Alpek-pizza, an extra all-variant with beef, bearnaise sauce, asparagus, onions, mozzarella and mushrooms. Victoria prefers a simple tomato pasta while the youngest, most of the children, tend to choose simpler pizzas Bambino and Margherita.
- The entire royal family is so humane and nice people and just like any other, says Kemal Alpek, saying first that they are like any customers.
Then he regrets and describes how proud he is that they come back year after year.
