Lars-Erik Tindre (43) has been the Head of The King's Household since January 2015, before that he was the under-secretary at the Government Offices/Ministry for Foreign Affairs and also worked at the swedish embassies in Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
It will be interesting to see what is Lars-Erik Tindre's new job.

Svensk Damtidning writes that it was surprising, that no one expected that the King would change the Head of his Household now at the same time with Victoria.

The king's new Marshal of the Court Göran Lithell tells about the first week at the Palace - and about the challenge of finding a workplace with a total of 1,430 rooms ...
Congratulations on your new job! How has the first week been?
- Thanks. Of course, it is very much new to introduce myself to this in the beginning. Thanks to my knowledgeable, generous and pleasant staff, it has been a very good first week.
Have you learned how to find everything at the Royal Palace yet? Read that there are 1,430 rooms!
- At least I've learned how to find my office.
What are you most looking forward to as Head of H.M. The King's Household? And what is most different from your previous job at the Swedish Embassy in Washington?
- First, I would like to express my great joy in getting the honorable assignment to work for the Head of State and his family. The assignment is very different from my previous work as a second man at the Embassy in Washington, but something that is in the focus of both assignments ito highlight modern and innovative Sweden based on Swedish traditions.
What has your contact with the royal family been like before?
- My first contact with the royal family was when I did my military service as a military police officer at K1 in Stockholm and was part of the Mounted Royal Guards. After that, I have had the privilege of being with at different occasions and receiving different parts of the royal family during my foreign postings for Foreign Affairs in Russia, Estonia, Denmark and now most recently in the USA.
Finally 3 short questions! Which book did you read most recently?
- I often read several books in parallel. The most recent was the anniversary book: Ätten Bernadotte 200 years on Sweden's throne 1818-2018.
What are you listening to, on the way to work?
- Then I listen to P1 Morning.
And what you don't miss seeing on TV?
- The family moved home from the US just a few weeks ago, so I'm still establishing new-old habits. Something I do not miss, however, is the news program.
In private Göran Lithell is married to Karin, who is a civil and environmental economist and has worked at Sida, among others, but who is an artist. They have twins Svante and Harald, 11, and daughter Astrid, 16 together.
Kungens nya hovmarskalk om första veckan på jobbet _ Svensk Dam

Svensk Damtidning has a little mistake at their article. Both Göran Lithell and Lena Bartholdson, the new Head of Victoria's Household, aren't now called The Marshal of the Court (hovmarskalk). They are called hovintendent, during their probationary period, I think. Because Karolin A. Johansson was also first called as hovintendent, and soon after hovmarskalk.

The Director of the Information and Press Department, Margareta Thorgen, was today as a guest at Malou von Sivers' talkshow Malou efter tio at TV4. Thorgen was at the program with her son Sven. Sven is a snowboarder who competes in slopestyle.
In the program, Margareta Thorgren talked about her role. Among other things, she will provide media with information and, together with her team, show the king's work with and for the royal family.
- If everything goes well, the Director of the Information and Press Department should not be seen. It is the office of the royal family and the head of state to do so. It is important to understand the Swedish form of government and why we have a monarchy, she says in the program.
Thorgren's predecessor was on the post for four years - and Malou von Sivers asked as the closing question how long she plans to remain as the Director of the Information and Press Department. Margareta Thorgren's message to the king was clear:
- A lot is happening right now and there are many fun things going on. I'll probably stay for a few more years. If I get the trust, she said and smiled.
