There are at least these:
The mistress of the robes, countess Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister, 84 years old.
Hovets grand old lady | Bakom Kulisserna
The former Marshal of the Realm, Ingemar Eliasson. He worked as a Marshal from 2003 until the end of 2009.
Royal Court
The Director of the Information and Press Department, Nina Eldh
Aftonbladet
The First Marshal of the Court, Lars Hjalmar Wide
SvenskDam
The head of HM The King's Military Staff, Major General Håkan Pettersson, who was also the official wedding coordinator of the wedding of Victoria and Daniel

Nina Eldh will be leaving teh royal court soon: Nina Eldh slutar som hovets informationschef - Nyheter - Senaste nytt | Expressen - Nyheter Sport Ekonomi Nöje

She has choosen to to renew it after it ends on 31 december. She feels great sadness. The king wanted her to continue, but she felt 5 years was enought and she was part of history during the wedding.

Thanks Esmeralda; here an article from Svensk Damtiding about the same thing, but translated into english:

Bertil Ternert will take over the job from the much critisized (on the internet forums anyway) Nina Eldh. He used to work for SAS.

The Master of Ceremonies (and the instructor of prince Daniel) Jan Warren tells in SvenskDam that in a normal month without special birthdays, dinners, weddings etc. his work takes three days a month. The work as an instructor to a very ambitious prince Daniel takes also some days. He tells that working with prince Daniel is exciting, privileged, fantastic and really pleasant. Jan Warren is 66 years old and he could have retired already. But since his working load is very variable and he can spend a lot of the month with his wife at their home in Öland, he hasn´t been thinking of retiring. The Warrens have an apartment in Stockholm also. Warren tells that he started working for the court 25 years ago as an adjutant. Last year he was appointed as the Master of Ceremonies. To the question which has been the hardest task during the years, he answers: To learn to find everything in the castle, it has taken 25 years!

The adjutants of the king and the adjutants of Victoria (and Daniel). Eight of the twelve adjutants of Victoria are women.

Twelve adjutants for Victoria!
I almost fell on my back, when I read that.
Then I started to read what they are actually doing and it makes more sense.
I see that Swedish adjutants have a much wider range of responsibillities than in say Denmark, where QMII has a staff of four or five adjutants and sometimes the other members of the DRF borrow and adjutant.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Victoria doesn't have lady-in-waiting, right?
She would hardly need one with an adjutant around.

Actually, of those twelve adjutants two are Carl Philip´s, Victoria has ten adjutants.

Thanks, LadyFinn,

So the three siblings have a staff of adjutants of their own, with CP Victoria, unsurprisingly, as the head?
Presumably then the King has a staff of adjutants of his own, of which Queen Silvia has been allocated some?

It interest me, because the Swedish system is a development of the typical role of royal adjutants beforehand, - for males that is.
For how long do the adjutants serve?

Do Queen Silvia and Victoria have a kind of personal assistant, which can be compared to a lady-in-waiting?
I mean you can hardly expect anyone to build up a relationship, that is very much built on confidence, with twelve persons, who on top of that rotate.

The Queen has no own adjutants.
About Her Majesty The Queen´s Household
H.M. The Queen's Household - Sveriges Kungahus

The Crown Princess's household is headed by the Marshal of the Court, Jörgen Lindström. The Crown Princess has a secretary. Before the wedding it was announced that Victoria had got a lady-in-waiting, but I don´t know if she still has one.

Thanks LadyFinn

It appears then that Queen Silvia has LiW's who perform a number of the roles CP Victoria's adjutants has performed, at least so far.

The First Lady of the Court, i.e. the one who is in charge of Queen Silvia's part of the court, is she a former LiW, who has been promoted or is she a professional administrator?

Do you mean that Queen is not accompanied by an adjutant, when on the job alone? Or that she just doesn't have personal adjutants? - I.e. she's lending one from the King.

Yeah, yeah, I know, I ask a lot of questions, but it intriques me.

Royal courts

Sorry to interrupt your discussions!
Although I am a member of royal family, but only as a lawyer, I know that the rules and even th
e definitions of the court for royal family is not the same as normal courts. It is mostly, in many cases even the rules enforced for the people, are just an optional rule for the royal family. I like it to remain the same and I support this. Although my royal family is not ruling in my country anymore and the people changed it to Republic about 30 years ago.

At this interview it is said that Madeleine doesn´t have any adjutants, because she just doesn´t want to have them. Queen Silvia has ladies in waiting instead of adjutants. Daniel doesn´t have adjutants of his own, but one of Victoria´s adjutants goes usually with him to his duties, I have often seen an adjutant with Daniel at the photos.
