Princess Désirée, Baroness Silfverschiöld, celebrates today her 80th birthday.

At an article in Svensk Damtidning it is said that princess Margaretha had her 80th birthday party at the Royal Palace and princess Birgitta at Drottningholm Palace. How the royal family celebrates princess Désirée's 80th birthday? Will it be something similar?
- There will be a celebration - but how it's private, said Margareta Thorgren.

Svensk Damtidning wrote previously that all Haga princesses Margaretha, Birgitta, Désirée and Christina attend at Adrienne's christening, because the king is planning the celebration of the big sister Désiree the day after the christening. According to Svensk Damtidning princess Désirée is will be away her 80th birthday today and it is therefore a very good time to celebrate her in connection with the christening when the entire royal family is gathered.

Princess Birgitta told to Expressen, that princess Désirée celebrated her 80th birthday with her whole family in Venice, she was there for three days, and is coming home tonight.
Her birthday coincided this year with Princess Madeleine's friend "Lussans" wedding, where the royal family was present. But Princess Désirée will also be celebrated by the family this coming week. That's when Adrienne's christening takes place.
- We will see her this week around the christening, and then we'll celebrate her instead. There will be no bigger event, more than we see and have a nice time. She does not want to be celebrated, and then you have to accept it. We are siblings, above all, says Princess Birgitta.
Also the king?
- Obviously he does it somehow, but I can not answer that right now. It may be somewhat spontaneous.
The diretor of the press department, Margareta Thorgren tells that the celebration of Princess Désirée takes place privately.
- It is clear that the King and other royal families pay attention to the 80th anniversary of Désirée in different ways. In detail, I can not comment because it is a completely private celebration, she says, continuing.
- If Princess Désirée comes to the christening, which I can not comment on because the guest list is released the day before, then it is clear that the king will celebrate his sister then.

It would be a treat if we did. The one at Birgitta's birthday was a lovely surprise but poor Christina clearly looked unwell to me.

Expressen's royal expert Karin Lennmor writes in her chronicle about princess Désirée.

Secret Princess Désirées Millions
Lennmor writes that she is better off in the kitchen and bakes than being a princess.
But Désirée is just a princess - and had star status during her birth.
Now she has withdrawn into a more anonymous life. Today she is 80 years old and spends her birthday as a widow.
Lennmor writes also that it should not be forgotten that the Haga Princesses had in the 40s and 50s almost reached the star status. They were extremely popular and rewritten. Désirée was the cool, beautiful and most queenlike.
There are few who know, but there were plans to try to get her together with King Constantin of Greece in the late 50's, then she would have been queen ...
Now, some Greger Lewenhaupt came in between ... Désirée had found the great love in him. Greger went under nickname Teddy and was big brother to "Noppe" Lewenhaupt, who eventually became good friend with the king. The boys lived on Gäddeholm's estate.
It could have been Désirée and Greger - but in 1960 he died in a dramatic ski accident, just 22 years old.
Désirée was of course broken down. But after a year, she met baron Niclas Silfverschiöld. Désirée was a friend of his sister Irma.
Niclas and Désirée had three children: Carl, Christina and Heléne. She has also many grandchildren who are very close to her.
She took care about her castle, held dinners, loved to cook rhubarb pie, cared a lot about the children. Sometimes little brother came to visit - around Koberg, which lies outside Trollhättan, there are amazing hunting grounds.
The couple got 53 years old together before Niclas as 82 years old, fell asleep after a long illness in April last year.
The successorsof Niclas were the son of the couple, the two daughters, instead, inherit Désirée.
And it's no trouble for her, today's birthday child. With houses in Mallorca and total assets of over SEK 50 million, she is a woman who has it very well.

Svensk Damtidning writes that according to their information, the royal family celebrated princess Désirée's 80th birthday with a dinner at Haga Palace on Saturday. Princess Désirée had her birthday on 2nd June, but she was then in Venice with her children.
Svensk Damtidning has photos of king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia, princesses Margaretha, Birgitta and Désirée leaving Drottningholm Palace late in the afternoon. With them they had also princess Désirée's sister-in-law Irma Silfverschiöld. Since princess Christina lives in Stockholm, she and her husband Tord Magnuson went probably straight from there.
Svensk Damtidning has tried to contact Margareta Thorgren, but hasn't got an answer.

So very sad she lost her first love in so tragic circumstances!
But she found happiness with her future husband.
As far as I know, they had only four grandchildren (one by Carl, three by Kristina-Lovisa; Helene is childless) and, for having three children, it's not so "many"; with three children one could expect six, seven, eight grandchildren

Svensk Damtidning wrote earlier, that Victoria and Daniel hosted princess Désirée's 80th birthday party at Haga Palace. Princess Birgitta was celebrated with a black tie party at Drottningholm Palace, but princess Désirée had wished for something more relaxed, and it is rumoured that the birthday was celebrated with a barbecue party.
