So the Bentleys are on hire to the Swedish Royal Mews?

So the two cars have been hired/leased by the Palace for this occasion? They have displayed the licence plates with the Royal Crown over any other plates and there's that sticker on the back window. Would they be on trial?

How are the Swedish royal cars normally distinguised - besides any banners/flags on the front?

thanks in advance

:) The Bentley marked with the Crown belong's to the Swedish Royal car park in 'Hovstallet'. I don´t know anything about the Brittish one.

SÄPO and the Royal court recently bougt a new bulletproof saftey car for Victoria when she is on official dutys. It's a BMW but everything about the car is secret.

I have heard that the son of princess Christina (mrs. magnuson) is the ceo of the Bentley stockholm. So family has natural contacts to bentley, if it is true.

He is "only" the Marketing Director for the Swedish branch of Bentley, located at the posh street Strandvägen in Stockholm.

What kind of car does Victoria have? Does the family own the cars or are they owned by the state?

I don't think the Crown Princess has a car which she drives herself, she is instead driven by chauffeurs and accompanied by security guards when she goes somewhere. Princess Madeleine and Prince Carl Philip do drive however.

The cars and such used by the Royal Family for official business are registered to The Royal Mews, but I think that the King has a few gems (Porshe, Maserati and perhaps some old classics) which he owns privately too since it's one of his passions.

Princess Madeleine drives her Lexus and I suppose she owns it, or perhaps daddy does :)

Victoria doesnt drive herself, SÄPO drives her around and they have several "protected" cars. I think I read in Svensk Damtidning a few weeks ago that Victoria had got a new safety Mercedes or BMW or something like that (cars isnt my "thing" )

A car? Yes he has a car. I think its a Lexus, just like his sisters

This car, a Lexus, has now been sold because of Madeleine beeing in the states. The new owner, a man living on Östermalm, says the car is very nice.

Imo its odd to sell a car just because you are away for 6 months.
Martin Melin at the royal mews says:
- There are other cars available when, and if, she gets back from the states.
IF? Hello, does she intend to spend her life over there or what?

No Yennie I seriously doubt Princess Madeleine palns on spending her life away from Sweden. I think when she gets back in the summer she will buy a new car! That is what I think she will do anyway.

Madeleine's car was leased from Lexus and since noone's using it it's only natural to cancel the contract.

I see she leased the car or the Royal Court did. I think Princess Madeleine will wait until arriving back to Sweden in the summer before deciding on leasing/buying a new car.

King Carl Gustaf has bought a Ferrari 599 GTB. He was driving it last weekend when he went to see Carl Philip racing in STCC.
Torbjörn von Braun has worked with sports car for over 30 years. He went many times to Drottningholm with different cars and tells: The king got to test drive some different cars. He is very interested in engines and automobiles. Now that he would buy a new car, he wanted to be really sure of his choice. Eventually it became this Ferrari. A very nice car. As new, it cost a little over 2 million. Now the prices are around 800 000 SEK.
The king bought the Ferrari in June. He had previously owned a dark blue Ferrari 456 MGT. He gave the old car in change. The director of the press department, Margareta Thorgren, says that it is the king's private car which he bought with his own money.
