Lovely story on how she fell in love with Hansi. I appreciate her openness in the interview, without giving away too much royal privacy.
Her and Hansi must have had so much respect for each other that they never formally divorced.

I like that. There are other examples like Princess Irene of the Netherlands and the late Duke of Parma, or the Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson: both couples divorced but never remarried and always remained on very good terms with each other. In hindsight they could have chosen Princess Birgitta's way: living separate lives but no formal divorce.

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department, said to Svensk Damtidning that because princess Birgitta's 80th birthday party tomorrow is a private event, they can't comment which family members are attending and about the guest list. But Thorgren confirmed that all four king's sisters are attending.

And it has been known before that Carl Philip and Sofia are on a long holiday in South Africa and will not attend.

Expressen tells that princess Birgitta has another birthday party in Mallorca with her friends who live there.
Princess Birgitta arrived to Sweden on Tuesday and returns to Mallorca on Saturday. At the birthday party at Drottningholm Palace court singer Loa Falkman sang "Ja må hon leva" (The Swedish Birthday song) to her.
Prinsessan Birgittas 80-årsfest på Mallorca _ Kungligt _ Expressen

One of the guests, Alexandra Charles, told to Expressen that king Carl Gustaf held a loving speech to his sister.
- It was a fine speech in which he paid tribute to his sister. He expressed his pleasure that she returns to Sweden at times and stays here, even though she lives in Mallorca. It had warmth - and a lot of humor.
How the humor was shown?
- I do not want to tell too much about the speech or evening, it was a private event and it shall stay as such, I think. But it was a very good evening. The evening was very warm, generous, nice and familiar. Princess Birgitta was charmed by the fine party, Alexandra Charles says.

Princess Birgitta visited Hong Kong in the end of November 2016. She is the patron of The Royal Sweden Hong Kong Society.

The VTC was extremely honoured to have received H.R.H. Princess Birgitta of Sweden and her delegation from the Royal Sweden Hong Kong Society, the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship and its students.
The Princess and her delegation was impressed by the advanced and well-equipped facilities in the training restaurant and kitchen which she highly commended.

Princess Birgitta didn't this year participate at the annual charity golf event Barngolfen which was played yesterday. The tournament is played in benefit of The Queen Silvia's Children's Hospital. Princess Birgitta has played at the tournament almost every year.

Svensk Damtidning published in their last week's issue an interview of singer Barbro "Lill-Babs" Svensson. Lill-Babs said about her friend princess Birgitta:
- Birgitta is a wonderful girl, very lovely and straightforward. She is a devil on golf, has so good taste with clothes and you can hang anything on to her. But she is careful with the food and it doesn't help how much I nag to her that she should eat more.
In October Lill-Babs and Birgitta and their friend Mona Tumba will play golf in Florida and attend at SWEA (Swedish Women's Educational Association International) South Florida's 25th anniversary celebration.
- It will be so much fun!, said Lill-Babs.

The 25th Anniversary celebration is on 7th October.

Crown Princess Victoria had a wish for her 40th birthday - that the four Haga princesses would attend. And they did so.
On Monday, Princess Margaretha was seen together with Queen Silvia in Solliden. But princess Birgitta has left Öland and gone back to Mallorca, where she has lived for many years - and she has a fine memory from the 40th anniversary.
- It was fantastic as usual, she says.
But now it's Mallorca and there will be a lot of golf in the summer - in addition to a trip to Munich already this week.
- I play golf every day. That's what I enjoy the most. And all this what is in Mallorca of course. I live a normal life like everyone else. There isn't anything remarkable. I enjoy the sun and the warmth and all nice people, good friends and my usual life.
Do you enjoy yourself?
- Absolutely I do, but Sweden is fine, it could have been a bit warmer but it was a beautiful weather. But it was perfect as usual, she continues, telling that there will be a new Sweden visit already in September when she has a "golf story".
Carl Philip and Sofia are waiting for their second child.
But you may come to the baptism and Te deum?
- Yes, we will see what fits into my program, says Birgitta.

Princess Birgitta looks better than I've seen her in a long time. Happy & healthy.
