Prince Daniel and queen Silvia are at MedTechMagazine's list of the 100 most powerful people at medtech world. Power is about power and influence. Power in medtech world is ultimately about affect on our everyone's health and wellbeing.
Daniel is 30th and the queen 52nd.
Prince Daniel, active patient, inter alia, MOD, register for organ donation and entrepreneur. Seems determined to make a difference at things with his position where he married to.

Queen Silvia is diligent delegation traveler and engaged in issues related to children, the elderly and the sick. When the queen speaks, everyone listens. It makes her a sought-after speaker on topics dealing with aging and public health, and even though she may not influence policy decisions, she may bring voters - and in this way the politicians.

I think it is quite nice that the two consorts get this appreciation for their work. Well-deserved for both.

In this photo posted by SvenskDam on Instagram, you can see what appears to be the Christmas Card from this year. It looks like Silvia is holding Estelle. https://instagram.com/p/0ViKiaJLHP/

At the photo is Peter Engelbrecht, the favourite florist of the royal family. He was at the Palace on Victoria's Name Day and gave her flowers (the big bouquet).

The royal family attended yesterday at the christening of Désirée Magnuson, 8 months, at the Royal Chapel. Victoria, Daniel, Estelle, Madeleine, Chris and Leonore posed for Expressen's photographer when they left the Chapel. After the christening princess Christina and Tord Magnuson hosted a lunch. The king went to the lunch alone, the queen had been at the christening but chose not to go to the lunch.
Victoria said that the christening was wonderful. It is the word. It was beautiful. The others nodded and Princess Madeleine clarified: Fantastic.

Proudest on this day were of course father Gustaf and mom Vicky. The naming ceremony was led by Gustaf's childhood priest Hans Rhodin, Désirée has also names Elfrida Christina. Gustaf told to Expressen:
- Everything went as planned. It was a very light and great ceremony. Everyone was happy and it was fun to see. We are so excited about this. Now, let's just enjoy this moment.

The king wants more money from the taxpayers to the court functions. The Royal Court gets this year of SEK 128 million from taxpayers, more than half of the money is king's apanage which goes to everything from the celebrations to trips and wages.
But that money is not enough, according to the King. He is now requesting from the Government of SEK 6.3 million extra for security measures. The court also tells that they would need another four million to cover wage and price increases. A total of 10 million.
When it comes to money requested for security is the court reticent.
- It's all about safety. But why, where and in what ways we do not go into that. We never comment that, says Lindman.

One of the year's big spending is prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist's wedding. It will cost over six million if it will be as lavish as princess Madeleine's.
Then the taxpayers, through the allocation to the royal household, paid three million and the rest the king paid from his own pocket.
According to Lindman wedding can result in becoming a deficit of Court Administration - just as it was after Madeleine's wedding.
Then you have to re-prioritize and make new considerations in the budget.
- Anxious projects are implemented, but less urgent projects might slid slightly in the future.
Carl Philip's upcoming wedding is not mentioned in the budget documents to the government.

The court's information department is getting increasingly digital. The website and the royal family's Facebook page are updated more often and supplemented by more movies and photos.
- The profile of those working in the communication department has gradually changed as the technology changes, says Lindman.
Royal family business is not just about parties, trips and glamour. The old buildings next to Drottningholm Palace need extensive renovations.

I have some thoughts about the official dinners that the King and Queen hold every year. In my opinion I think that the number of dinners have decreased the last couple of years. This year, so far, we have only seen one official dinner, Representationsmiddag, and no more seems to be planned, neither is a Sweden Dinner, Sverigemiddag, that was introduced in 2013.

For some years ago we could see two or three white tie Official Dinners in the Spring, but that seems not be the case anymore. Last year we saw two official dinners, one in the spring and on in the fall, plus one Sweden Dinner. Let's hope we at least get the same amount this year.

According to the court calendar only the king should have attended at a seminar on value-based leadership and presentation of Young Leadership scholarships. But also prince Daniel attends, and a tweet tells that queen Silvia is also there, haven't seen her at the photos yet. Tord Magnuson attended also at the seminar.

The seminar is held at the White Sea Hall (Vita Havet).

On Monday, May 4th, the King and the Crown Princess visit the Migration Agency in Malmö to immerse themselves in the asylum process and the situation of unaccompanied minors.
The King visited the Agency's headquarters in Norrköping in February and now it is Malmö's turn. During the visit, the King and the Crown Princess visit the application unit to follow the initial work when an asylum application is submitted. Here they will also get to meet and ask questions from asylum seekers.
- It's nice that the King and the Crown Princess are committed to our questions. It is important that we get another opportunity to talk about our business, says the Migration Agency's Director General Anders Danielsson.
After the visit to the Migration Agency, the King and Crown Princess visit a home for unaccompanied children in Malmö.
