Unlike her sisters, she looks like an embarrassment. Without wanting to be offensive.

Princess Birgitta and Family, Current Events Part 1: December 2002 -

I can't stay quiet anymore. The moderators can remove my post if it's too offensive but this is what i feel about Princess Birgitta.

I can't stand this lady and I'm happy that she isn't very often in the spotlight nowdays. It is like she is drunk whenever she speaks in public.

She is rude, arrogant, bitter and most of all jelaous (yes you are Birgitta!) and never misses a chance to stab her brothers family in the back. Luckily the other 3 sisters of the King is not at all like her, atleast not in public.

I am happy that she almost always stays away from royal family gatherings.

I actually don't dislike the princess. She has reached an age that she can get away with most things. She obviously is more blunt than we are used to. Every family has a blunt funny old aunt, and usually they are great favourites within the family .

Of course honesty will result in dislike (for not wanting to live in Sweden as she finds it too dark for example), but considering her place down the line I doubt it is very harmful and it is quite refreshing to hear an honest answer instead of the usual simular diplomatic dishonesty that any media-trained person blabbers these days.

What awful things did she say? Apart from not having as much contact with her brother as she likes -which can be a positive thing too, as she likes him enough to regret the lack of contact.

She withdrew the word 'jealous', she actually praises the CPss and prince CP. She even is diplomatic about Sofia.

But since she never misses a chance to stab her brother in the back (quoting HR): what more examples are there than these few remarks (one of which was withdrawn)? I don't know all that much about the princess. Her appearance may not be picture-perfect, but I think it is best not too judge people for their appearance only.

Did any other Haga sister attend the birthday of their cousin, the Queen of Denmark? I don't recall seeing any of them on pictures. The Haga sisters are the most low-key of all royal siblings it seems.

I didn't know she speaks bad about her family...

I always picture her mother, who was an elegant woman. Quite different from Princess Birgitta.

I don't wanna be rude, it's only how i see her.

Svensk Damtidning has an article "9 things you probably didn't know of princess Birgitta".
Among these are that her siblings call her Gittan. And that Birgitta likes to stay at Hotel Diplomat during the family celebrations in Stockholm, while her sisters stay at the guest rooms at the Royal Palace. Birgitta and Désirée are very close.

Princess Birgitta played golf at the traditional Barngolfen at Mölndal Hill Golf course on Monday 15th June. It is a charity golf and the proceeds go to Queen Silvia's Children's Hospital. There is always an auction organised together with the golf.

Princess Birgitta plays today at the annual charity golf event Barngolfen at the Hills Golf & Sports Club in Mölndalen. She is the patron of Barngolfen. The tournament is played in benefit of The Queen Silvia's Children's Hospital. The first tournament was played in May 2006. Every year there are celebrities and professional golf players attending. Every year the money has been raised to The Queen Silvia's Children's Hospital. In addition to the golf tournament, there has been an auction in internet. And in the evening at the tournament banquet there is an auction and all the money from these auctions goes to the Children's Hospital.
The funds raised during Barngolfen in 2016 will go to New Queen Silvia Children's Hospital which is currently being built. When it is ready by 2020, it will be one of the most modern Children's Hospitals.

The tournament started at 09.30 and ended at 17.00.

While Birgitta and the others were playing golf, the children from the hospital tested golf and chatted with celebrities.

This year's result from Barngolfen was 2,579,000 SEK but Ernst Rosén, one of the sponsors, donated a big sum and the result ended up on 3,5 million!

We will see how many years Birgitta will still play at Barngolfen, she has her 80th birthday on next January. One of the celebrities golfing at the event often is singer Lill-Babs (Barbro Svensson), 78 years.

Thanks for the updates! It's wonderful the fundraising was so successful.

The first couple of posts on this page about Princess Birgitta piqued my curiosity, particularly the 'jealous' comment. I read the previous pages but can't judge her too harshly since I don't know the full context. Certainly, a poor choice of words but who hasn't been jealous? Was there a longer explanation in the Parnevik program? She should have been more guarded in the interview.

Anyway, it's good she and her siblings remain close despite the distance and their different activities, especially the King's duties. There's much fuss about Birgitta's appearance. Understandably her skin shows prolonged sun exposure but she seems otherwise healthy and active. Not bad for a 79 year old!

Local newspaper Mölndals-Posten about Barngolfen

Celebrity party fixes millions for children
A short distance away stands the duo that perhaps most of all personifies the competition - Barbro "Lill-Babs" Svensson and Princess Birgitta. The latter is the event's special patron, and attends the ninth time.
How much competition devil the princess has in herself?
- Nothing at all. I don't like to compete. But she does!, says Princess Birgitta and points towards Barbro Svensson, who nods affirmatively.
