Expressen's royal expert Karin Lennmor at her chronicle about "Året med kungafamiljen". She writes that SVT's program is better than TV4's "Kungahuset 9-5".

Here is the sequence that will be a classic
I just love "The Year with the Royal Family"! What makes this royalistic television program so irresistible?
Once a year, those who like royals need to have a little bit of feast, follow the royal family in everyday and feast, at work and in private life? It is about our head of state and his family.
Producer Sara Bull has won the royal family's confidence with her muted role and professional but gentle style to interview. Surely she gets many exciting insights into the family's life ... what we don't see from tv ... But Sara doesn't tell anything. I and surely many other journalists have asked her to blab a little ...
In this year's program there is a new bright star - Princess Estelle! SVT allows this little charmer to take her place. But give us even more!
The program begins with that Estelle goes with mother Victoria to Askö to visit a marine research center. Estelle sings to the full "Oajajajaj buff!" - You know the verse of the child's song when Mother Troll has put her eleven little trolls to bed.
This scene is guaranteed to be as classic as the kitchen scene in the 80's when the royal children made sausage and Victoria called: "Mera kött, mera kött! (More meat)
But back to Estelle. To go with her mother on a boat trip, to learn about the sea, the Baltic Sea - it's so rightly thought of Victoria. Estelle is still small, but she is inquisitive and gobbles everything she can learn. Wise to let her child become environmentally aware already as a 6 year old! They have fun together, mom and daughter, and you notice how nice relationship they have.
Estelle is already raised to her role in life, but in a easy and fun way. She is spontaneous and unselfconscious. Like when she talks with jellyfish:
- Jellyfish! Finally! Hi jellyfish!
There is a big difference between children growing up in the 80's and today. In the early programs we met Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine as small ... but they were shy and somewhat uncomfortable. Completely different as Estelle 2017! Lovely to see!
She's already urbane, the young one! She poured elegantly up the water for cousin Gabriel at the baptism. She can converse - even a little in English - and sometimes she acts as a little hostess when mom and dad have guests, for example, serves snacks.
Crown Princess Victoria always returns to the question of being a present mom - she thinks that she is not that! But I think it's right to introduce your children to new worlds, to already give Estelle an environmental thought, to make her feel pure water, algae, jellyfish, the sea is exciting and fun. In addition, our environment is such a great question - it's not political, we can all stand up and say we want a better environment.
Princess Estelle is the TV-star of the year!

Expressen writes about that Chris and Madeleine's children are not with at "The Year with the Royal Family".

Princess Madeleine's husband Chris O'Neill and children Leonore and Nicolas are absent in "The Year with the King Family".
- Chris does not always figure in the official context, so it's no other explanation than that this year, it became a little less focus on him, said Margareta Thorgren.
Instead, it is the Crown Princess's 40th anniversary that is in focus, as well as various official contexts that the royal family participated in.
- SVT had long broadcasts from the Crown Princess's birthday, and there you see the whole Madeleine's family. We interviewed Princess Madeleine in London, but then the focus was on her and, naturally, the children were not included. On official missions, the children are seldom, says Sara Bull, producer at SVT.
The court is happy about the selection:
- We think it's good that they have concentrated on the official work of the royal family and there should not be a big focus on young children, although many may think it's fun to see them, says Margareta Thorgren.
SVT believes it's a coincidence that Chris O'Neill, Leonore and Nicolas are not part of the program and refers to last year, especially Chris O'Neill was more seen.
- And he has no official mission, no title. Had he had that we might have tried to get an interview a bit more often. But we have had with him and there is nothing that says we will not have it in the future again. We did not submit an interview request to Chris O'Neill this year, says Sara Bull.
Därför är Chris O'Neill inte med i _Året med kungafamiljen_ _ Kungligt _ Expressen

Swedish Royal Videos & Sound Clips (+ coming TV appearances)

I find it a bit weird that the inteviewer addresses them in the 3rd person.
I have never noticed it in interviews with other royals.

The Swedish Academy has published a video of the formal gathering of the Swedish Academy on 20th December 2017 at its Vimeo.
The royal family arrives at 00.30 and after that the members of the Academy arrive and bow to the king. The royal family members are shown from time to time. In the end of the gathering the members bow to the king again and leave, and then the royal family leaves.

"Kungliga brudklänningar" (Royal Wedding Dresses)
will be shown on SVT1 on Sunday 13th May at 20.00, and on SVT Play
Five wedding dresses - five steps into a new life. Queen Silvia and Princesses Lilian, Victoria, Madeleine and Sofia tell personally about the dresses they had at their weddings. We meet fashion designers Pär Engsheden and Ida Sjöstedt, and get to know the secrets of Dior, Valentino and Elizabeth Wondrak.
Kanaler _ SVT Play

The program is already now at SVT Play
Kungliga brudklänningar _ SVT Play

The best parts for me were Pär Engsheden telling so well about Victoria's wedding dress and how it was made. And to hear about Lilian and Elizabeth Wondrak. How they were friends and Wondrak made clothes for Lilian for over 50 years.
