I am having fun learning how to pronounce those Swedish names ! I guess I have figured out the vowel system now, but the different pronunciations of the letter 'g' still confuse me. Also, I find it very hard to know which syllable is stressed in Swedish words.

Just for curiosity: Which of Swedish provinces do not currently have a Duke?

It may be, but the court hasn't issued any statements regarding the titles of Carl Philip and Madeleine's grandchildren.

I apologize if that sounds like a dumb question, but how does one say "you" (or equivalent) in Swedish when addressing a Swedish royal ?



On a related, but different question, how would one say "you" to Mr Christopher O'Neill ?


Thank you for your reply.

Thank you for your reply.
Not a stupid questions at all, actually there are many options to choose from in how the Swedish royal is adressed.

Many would just say "du" (you) and few would say "Ni" (You), the use of "Ni" in Swedish was almost removed in the 1960's.

Another option, which many would do, is to address the royal with their title, "Kungen" (the King), "Drottningen"(the Queen) etc. It sounds a bit complicated, but it avoids the royals to be addressed "du". For example:

"Skulle Kungen kunna berätta om x?" Could the King tell us about x?
"Vad anser Kronprinsessan om x?" What does the Crown Princess think about x?

I think many Swedes would address Christopher O'Neill with "du", in line with his decision to decline a title.

Thank you very much, Kingen. Your reply was very helpful.


I have just one more question: when the indirect third-person form of address is used (e.g. "the King"), are third-person possessive pronouns used too ? I mean, would you say


Would the King like his cup of coffee now ?


or


Would the King like your cup of coffee now ?





Thanks again.




EDIT: If "the King" were replaced with "Your Majesty", would that change the possessive pronoun too ?

Not being a speaker of Swedish I cannot answer the question with certainty but we did and sometimes still do something similar in our family when addressing our (much older) uncles and aunts. The formal 'u' seems to distant and the informal 'jij' not respectful enough, so the sentence (translated) 'Would aunt X like a/her cup of coffee?' (I'd try to avoid the possessive but if needed it would be her) would come completely natural to me (while my husband still isn't used to it - he would use the formal you instead).
