Let's hope she will get well and attend the birthday party for the King who turns 70 on April 30, 2016. Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister has been with the court for 37 years and will turn 90 a few days after the King's birthday so she certainly deserve to be retired.

Johan T Lindwall has interviewed new Chief Court Chaplain Johan Dalman at the Strängnäs Cathedral, he is the bishop of Strängnäs.
Dalman got the news of his work for the king as a text message:
- It was a text message where it shortly stood "His majesty the king has today appointed you as the Chief Court chaplain to the King." It was incredibly good news, says Dalman.
Johan Dalman was last spring appointed as bishop of the Strängnäs diocese with a record high level of confidence, 68 per cent. He started at his work in September.
Less than two months later, the next career step: Chief Court Chaplain to The King and Queen at the Royal Palace.
- Yes, it was undoubtedly a decision that caused feelings. Pride was probably one of the first things I thought of.
Dalman first got last week to know that something could be going on:
- I got the question if I could imagine to put my name at the disposal of the process. I thanked course with joy, yes, but at the same time I did not expect to get the mission. If you, as I have just gone through an episcopal election, one doesn't want to go into those thoughts again to get elected or not elected.
Dalman has on several occasions met the royal couple and also preached to them. But there was never any question of any job interview.
- There were a thousand thoughts in my head when it was clear. Joy, of course.
Dalman will continue as bishop in Strängnäs while his new post.
- We'll talk through everything practical to come, but I will be able to have both functions. It only becomes interesting and fun.
Johan Dalman has already been linked to the royal family and the Royal Palace. His wife Margareta is the Director of the Royal Collections at the Royal Palace.
- She gives me always good advice. So she can probably give me some advice on how to find the Palace, Johan Dalman is joking.
On the video Lindwall reminds bishop Dalman that next year he will be busy with the royal court parish: Victoria and Daniel will have a child, Carl Philip and Sofia will have a child, the king has his 70th birthday, the king and queen have their 40th wedding anniversary and the queen celebrates 40 years as a queen. Dalman thinks that it will be a busy but a fantastic year ahead.

Here is a nice video of the new Chief Court Chaplain Johan Dalman, at his "normal" work as a bishop in Strängnäs. He is interviewed and tells about himself and his work.

Christian newspaper Dagen has a long video of the interview of Reverend Michael Bjerkhagen, Court Chaplain and Rector of the Royal Court Parish. Marcus Birro is interviewing.
Bjerkhagen says about the royal family:
"The church and faith are important to the whole royal family. They are very committed to the Royal Parish and it’s activities. They are acquainted with the matters of the church, in a way I’m very impressed about and I see that as a strength, not just for the Royal Parish but for the Church of Sweden and the whole country. And I know that during Christmas the royal family takes part at church services in various places".

The court has finally updated their website of the press department, and put the photo of the press secretary Daniel Urso there, he has worked at the court since last summer. They have also put photo of information officer Ann-Christine Jernberg there. Ann-Christine came after Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg as the Director of the Press department in 2004. And in 2005 Ann-Christine was diagnosed with MS disease. So she retired from her work as the Director of the Press Department in the beginning of 2006, but stayed at the court as information officer.

A somewhat meager article. But still an improvement of what else SD are writing about...

I can add that the drabant guards are cuirassiers as you can tell from their bullet-proof breastplate.
They were heavy cavalry and when first used they introduced a new novel tactics but more on that later.
The boots which are mentioned in the article are very stiff! Simply to protect the legs because the cavalrymen rode in very close formation with the knee locked behind the knee of the rider beside them.
The tricorn hats are interesting. They are mid 1700's, while the rest of the uniform is 1630-1720.

As heavy cavalry they are issued heavy (fairly modern BTW) straight bladed sabres, pallasks. In the 1600's they were armed with double edged swords.
The tactic when confronting enemy cavalry was to knock them down, or at least off the feet by the sheer weight of the massed formation. Then hacking the enemy horse over the head and dispatching with the enemy rider as his horse was going down.

In dealing with enemy infantry, the regiments rode in lines, about two squadrons besides each other straight towards the enemy block, that in the 1600's consisted of a mix of musketeers and pikemen. A very efficient combination that at the time completely dominated the battlefield but was very slow and difficult to maneuver.
The musketeers formed a firing line in front of the pikemen and when threatened by cavalry they moved back in among the now leveled up to six meter long pikes. Where they were completely safe from cavalry swords and lances. The cavalry simply couldn't get through the row of pikes.
So what to do? In the late 1500's pistols had been developed that were reasonably reliable, but very expensive and by the 1600's flintlock pistols had reached a stage where they could be used en masse by cavalry.
So the cavalry rode towards the infantry block and at a distance of perhaps 20 meters they fired their pistols, wheeled away right in front of the pikes, and right behind them followed the next line of cavalry.
Such attacks were continued until the infantry broke due to casualties or the cavalry simply gave up.
Or much more ominously until your own infantry moved up under cover of the cavalry, formed a line of musketeers at a close range and simply blasted the enemy infantry block to pieces. (Casualties after such volleys of 30-50 % were normal!)
If the enemy infantry broke they were dead! The cavalry would draw their swords and be among them in an instant. They would be hacked down, often to a man.

You may think the cavalry would charge a dense formation of infantry, bristling with pikes? Forget it! You may be able to persuade a cavalryman to do something so idiotic, but there is no way in this world you can persuade a horse to do such a stunt!

You may think by looking at the boots and shoes of the time often with silver buckles and think they would be pretty cool to wear.
Perhaps, but the footwear Swedish soldiers were issued were identical. I.e. there was no left or right shoes/boots.
So the next time your feet hurts, from your shoes, be glad you were not in the Swedish army around 1630 - marching up and down Germany.

Liisa Hartikainen, the Head of the Linen Chamber (Första Fatbursjungfru) is one of the persons, who will have a lecture and show the Linen Chamber this year.
Your lecture is one of our most popular, why do you think that is?
- Interest in both textiles and it's traditional craftsmanship, such as cold mangling, has become large. People can read on our website about our common cultural heritage, and then they want to see how we who are working behind the scenes, are doing it.
What is the most common question you get when you show the Linen Chamber?
- There are three questions that come up every time: Who decides which linen is used? How do you remove red wine stains? How old is the oldest linen?
What will you show this time?
- I will focus preferably on the noble art of cold mangling and show the linen that has been used during the different official events.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BBUSEGFv...-by=kungahuset

Liisa Hartikainen is a Finn, and there was an interview of her at finnish home interior magazine Kodin Kuvalehti in 2012. Hartikainen tells, that if the royal couple doesn't give any wishes, she chooses the linen, she has seven linen alternatives to the longest table: Margareta, Nordstjärna, Belgiska, Holländska, Franska, Melon and Vapen. It takes 6-7 linens to one long table. And when the event is over and the linens return to the Chamber, it takes about a month to clean and straighten them. In the end, cloths are left in a cold room to rest on the table for at least a month, preferably three.
"This is how these have been preserved over a hundred years. At the dinners here becomes wrinkled and dirty linens, and all of a sudden they become clean, soft and smooth. After all these many years it seems like a miracle", says Hartikainen.
Hartikainen moved to Sweden in the beginning of 1980's, she started as a cleaning lady at the Royal court in 1986. She had worked as a psychiatric nurse for some years but didn't like her job. She tells that she has learned her work from the previous manager and she has been reading old books.
When they do not maintain cloths, the shirts of the princesses national dresses, waiters' gloves or a chamber of lords bows, they wash more casual laundry. There is a wooden laundry box in the corner with "H.K.H. Kronprinsessan Haga Slott". There leaves Crown Princess Victoria's weekly bedsheet laundry as washed back to the Haga Palace.

Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg, the former Marshal of the Court has given an interview to Hemmets Journal. She worked on 1976-2004 at the court as a press assistant, press secretary and director of the press and information department, and in 2004-2008 as the Marshal of the Court and the Head of HRH The Crown Princess's Household.

At the interview she tells also about her work at the Royal Court:
What are you most proud of during your 30 years time at the Palace?
- That I got to be involved in building up the communication for a modern royal court. I came to the court in 1976, a few years after the King's accession to the throne in 1973. He and the Queen renewed monarchy and the royal court with a gentle hand. I got for example attend at the recording of SVT's first so-called Christmas program with the royal couple. It was basically the only royal TV-program which was aired then. Today it is different. I know from personal experience as an expert commentator at TV4.
Less proud of?
- Oh, it's many things. For example, "The Brunei affair". I wish that there had been a faster turnaround than it was. Because of both technology and human factors the king's statement that Brunei would be a democracy became so much bigger deal than it had needed to be. Everything was of course really a miscommunication.
What belonged to your duties at the Palace?
- It was not a profession, it was a lifestyle. That meant 365 days of the year where I was constantly at hand. Middle of the night could Expressen call me and want to get something confirmed about someone in the royal family and then I should wake up quickly, become clear headed and correct and friendly answer the questions. It was above all a service profession. The first few years the work was mainly on providing information, but with time, it was all about communication.
Did you ate and drank coffee with the king or queen during the days?
- No, I was at the Palace of professional reasons. But certainly my colleagues and I could be invited to working lunches for planning and when I occasionally during summers had official work duties at Solliden I got to know the royal family a little closer. It was my relationship with the Crown Princess which developed and became the most personal. I have contact with all of them today, but especially with the crown princess.
It is well known that there is a particularly strong bond between crown princess Victoria and Tarras-Wahlberg.
But you carry on some secrets?
- Yes, but they remain with me. It's not about hidden sensations or scandals but nothing everyone needs to know. All my friends learned quickly not to try to get the secrets of the royal family out of me. I had a simple principle, that what had been said in public or been put into writing was what we could talk about.
Are all rooms grand and large at the Palace?
- There are 608 rooms and I haven't even been in half of them. Our offices were functionally furnished without luxury. The official part and the reception rooms are very beautiful, but in a Swedish thrifty way. Very Gustavian mostly.
What's the king called in your phone book?
- Hmm, yes, I have numbers to all the members of the royal family and my phone is very important to me. But under what name they are, I will not tell to you.
Do you miss the job at the Palace?
- It was not an easy decision to quit, I'd say. I may miss the individual and the working community. But we keep the contact anyway. I think it is an advantage to stop while everything still feels positive - even if it had been easy to remain at the Palace forever.

An interview of Anne Tovar, the chambermaid of queen Silvia, was published at finnish home interior magazine Kodin Kuvalehti in 2012.
In 2009, Anne Tovar heard from the recruitment firm about an exciting job. They searched for a person interested in fashion with sewing skill, who would take care of representation clothing. There would also be traveling.
Anne applied for the job, because it sounded like made for her. She had the entire adult life sewn, sold and bought clothes, design and style services, in the last twenty years in Hong Kong and Spain. At the final of the long application process it became clear: Anne became Queen Silvia's chambermaid.
- Of course you're really happy to get such a job, Anne says.
There are not many chambermaids in Sweden, only crown princess Victoria and queen Silvia have them.
Anne takes care of the queen's clothes, compresses and decompresses suitcases and sews on a button, if that is needed. She goes shopping and brings clothes for the queen to choose and makes suggestions to the queen on how she could dress for different occasions.
Anne also accurately records up what the Queen is wearing at the events.
- The queen has 40-50 annually recurring events. I look after that she doesn't have the same clothes in them, or in events involving the same people.
The state visits are quite a hassle. The queen may change clothes several times a day. Must take into account the nature of the event, local culture and climate.
- My role is to work in the background so that the queen is shown in the best possible way.
Queen Silvia is often praised as elegant.
- Of course I'm pleased then and a bit taken. But I also do mistakes. It is instructive.
Anne doesn't tell about her mistakes.
- The photos speak for themselves.
The task of a chambermaid is not to be friends with the Queen, but to make the Queen's life easier.
- I say always Your Majesty. But I also say directly what I think about clothes, other things I will not comment. And one can joke a little, it is not boring at my work. The queen is a fantastic person.
Anne thinks she has succeeded, when she troubles the Queen as seldom as possible.
- The better I choose the clothing, the less I take of the Queen's time. She is so dedicated to her work that she really needs a chambermaid.
Anne has got a lot of requests but this was the first interview she gave.- The work is so private, one doesn't tell about these things in magazines. I have to take care of, that there will be no misunderstandings. Even now I'm pretty reticent.
The reason Anne gave an interview to a finnish magazine was that her parents are both Finns who have moved to Sweden.
- I'm proud of my finnish background. I have Finnish guts.

Anne Tovar was invited to Carl Philip's wedding last year, so I think that she is still the Queen's chambermaid.

The retired Mistress of the Robes, Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister, 89, gave an interview to some newspapers in the end of last year. Unfortunately the interview can be read only if you are subscribed:

Svensk Damtidning tells that queen Silvia has a new lady-in-waiting, Harriet Bredelius, 52. She had her first public work event last week. She studied at Lundsberg (like Carl Philip) and has also been in the school's Board of Directors. She is trained art historian and worked for more than ten years as researcher and writer on building preservation magazine Gård & Torp. Harriet lives in Östermalm in Stockholm and has four children.

The job became vacant because the queen's lady-in-waiting Eva Hafström, 55, got a job as a manager at the Swedish Police in Skåne and moved there. Eva and her husband Jonas Hafström have both grown up in Skåne and live at the Wrams Gunnarstorp Castle in Billesholm. Eva Hafström had graduated from the Swedish National Police Academy and worked at the Police when she was young. She started as the queen's lady-in-waiting in autumn 2013.

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department, gave on Thursday a lecture in Kalmar at the serie of lectures due to the 175th anniversary of Barometern newspaper. Thorgren has grown up in Kalmar and spends her summers in Öland.
She told the audience how she got the job and what her work at the court along with the royal family is about. The audience showed great commitment and asked many interesting questions. The lecture was sold out just like the first anniversary lecture by the political commentator Marcus Oscarsson.

Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg (Victoria's and Daniel's friend), the former director of the press department and the former Marshal of the Court, is one of the "Summer hosts" (Sommarvärdar) of Radio Sweden this summer. Every host has an own programme (about an hour) at the radio.
Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg's program is broadcasted on 14th July, Victoria's birthday.
Elisabeth told to Radio Sweden that she is going to tell what the language has meant to her through her life, about the longing for the squirrels in her garden, that she has spent half of her life in the royal family's service and how a personal encounter led to a sincere love.
Tarras-Wahlberg is still part of the so-called non-operating court.

Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg's, the former director of the press department and the former Marshal of the Court, programme as a "Summer host" (Sommarvärd) of Radio Sweden is broadcasted on 14th July, Victoria's birthday. When the Summer hosts were revealed, Tarras-Wahlberg was interviewed by the press.
Tarras-Wahlberg was asked how does it feel to be so close to the royal family.
"I have a professional relationship with the royal family and it feels very responsibly, it felt very responsibly during those years I worked with the communication at the court. Sometimes I had to think is it really me who should have this responsibility. The last three years I worked as the Marshal of the Court at Crown princess Victoria's Household and helped her to build the organization in that. We have continuing contact and it feels very good".
With whom at the royal family you are especially close to?
"Of course with the Crown princess. We travelled a lot together during those years and even before. I was her mentor and that means one is close and at hand and supports".
What is the best with the Crown princess?
"It is hard to summarize. She is so appropriate to her mission. She is ambitious, she is skilled, she has humor, she simply wants to do a good work. And she is such a great mother".
