The Riksdag commences celebration of democracy
On Monday, December 17, the Riksdag begins the celebration of democracy's breakthrough in Sweden. Two newly written anthologies are presented and two exhibitions are opened. The events are open to invited guests as well as the media.

Court website:
On Monday 17 December, the King and Crown Princess attended a seminar at the Riksdag to celebrate the breakthrough of democracy in Sweden.
The Riksdag draws attention to the introduction of democracy in Sweden through a four-year long democracy jubileum where democracy's breakthrough in Sweden will be celebrated in various ways. December 17, 2018, it is a hundred years since the first agreements on universal and equal voting rights were taken in the Riksdag.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the breakthrough of democracy, the government decided earlier this year to make a 17th December 2018 a temporary general flag day.
At the Riksdag, the King and Crown Princess were welcomed by Speaker Andreas Norlén. The seminar was then initiated with a speech by Andreas Norlén.
Seminar's moderator Cecilia Garme then left to the editors Lena Wängnerud and Ulrika Holgersson, Professor, who presented the anthology of the Century of the Voting Right.
Professor Emeritus Christina Florin and Associate Professor Fia Sundevall gave a history description of everything from voting rights to women's political participation and all those who did not have the right to vote.
Lecturer Ulrika Holgersson talked about the struggle for voting rights from a media perspective.
Professor Jan Teorell and Professor Lena Wängnerud talked about the future of democracy, that it is questioned from different angles and how it has been viewed throughout the ages.

This year the king decided, that Carl Philip, Sofia, Madeleine and Chris don't attend, and the press has speculated that this is because the king is angry for the mess what happened at the Swedish Academy. The king is the patron of the Academy.
But before 2010 usually the king, queen and Victoria attended at the gathering (Victoria attended for the first time in 2000), in 2008 only the king and queen. In 2010 Daniel attended for the first time, and then also Madeleine attended. In 2011 Carl Philip attended with the king, queen, Daniel and Victoria. In 2012-2013 also Chris attended and in addition to in 2014 Sofia attended for the first time.

Impressive. Today the King and Crown Princess of Sweden attended an entire day of defence speeches and panel discussions at @FolkochForsvar’s FoFRK conference in northern Sweden. Which other heads of state would show that kind of commitment to national security?

The Crown Princess's fashion success in Sälen
For the royal house, the conference Folk och Försvar in Sälen is an opportunity to get acquainted with issues concerning the national security.
And Crown Princess Victoria also shows her ability to dress for any occasion.
On Sunday, the annual national conference started and it runs until Tuesday.
As usual, there is the court with attendance from both King Carl Gustaf and Crown Princess Victoria.
Crown Princess Victoria has since her arrival demonstrated her ability to dress for all occasions, at seminars as well as at the ski slope and at the opening ceremony.
- Victoria is always elegant and here she really shows that she can dress in any weather. Fun to see the Crown Princess in ski outfit with the ski goggles on her head. Then she swept over and appeared in a stylish, gray suit matched nicely with pink shirt, says Expressen's fashion expert Therese Loberg.
The evening before, Victoria showed up in white knit blouse with high collar, silver earrings, black jacket and wide suit pants. To that she had one of her newest accessories - a budget watch from the Swedish brand Carl Edmond.
- Victoria really beamed in her outfit and looked lovely business-chic in the blouse with high collar, says Therese Loberg.
The King and Victoria Crown Princess spent two days in Sälen.
- They came in Sunday morning and are there until 5 pm on Monday. They sit and listen to different speakers, said Margareta Thorgren.
Why is it important for the royal family to attend?
- These are important issues when it comes to preparedness. The subject as such, people and defence, and preparedness issues are and have been very up-to-date. It's about total defence and issues that concern Sweden and therefore the head of state tries to participate in these seminars that have been going on for many years, said Margareta Thorgren.

The court has been standby ever since the election and now, after four long months, it is finally time. The speaker, the prime minister and the ministers entered ten minutes over two and five minutes later, the gilded doors were opened for the king and Crown Princess Victoria. Some 30 journalists and photographers are in place - and indeed some citizens!
- The public had the opportunity to register, so 20 people who knew this are in place, says Margareta Thorgren.

On Monday, January 21, the King, the Crown Princess and Princess Estelle visited the Bernadotte Library. The library, which is located in the Royal Palace, contains over hundred thousand books belonging to the Bernadotte dynasty's kings and queens. The library room was completed in 1796 and was originally built to be a Swedish national library.

I really admire how Crown Princess Victoria is educating Estelle. These regular visits to teach Estelle about the monarchy will be beneficial for Estelle. These visits seem relaxed, like a school museum visits for example. I'm sure Estelle will be fully prepared when she becomes the crown princess and, eventually, Queen.


This is what should be done. Nor a strict education neither a "be normal as possible" education. They seem to have a great balance on raising Estelle on the royal life and private life. I think Ingrid Alexandra is having a similar education. Leonor of Spain started her royal duties late, but still on time to learn slowly and without rush.
