”Kan handla om mutbrott” | Bröllopet | Aftonbladet

The couples honeymoon could be bribes. Its estimated that their trip cost several millions and Hult payed it all. Since Hult payed its speculated it could be a case of bribing to get the royal court do to services for his company EF education.


Or it could be a friend helping a friend that wants to do something extra on her honeymoon

At the article Thorsten Cars, Doctor of Law and former chairman of the Institute of bribery, says that theoretically the Crown Princess could be guilty to a bribery. If the gift makes pr-benefits it could in principle be an act of bribery. But he can´t see that any prosecutor would pursue it further.

As long as the court doesn´t comment the trip, we don´t know who paid what...

About the honeymoon, at an article of Svensk Damtidning it was said that Victoria and Daniel stayed a few days at the Copacabana Palace hotel in Rio in Brazil before going to the USA.

As much as I liked seeing that, I think it's a complete invasion of their privacy, they wanted to have a private party with their friends and family and the press flies over with a helicopter to capture these intimate moments, I really feel bad for these royals they never can do anything without it getting out to the press. I actually feel guilty watching that. On the other hand the Royal court should of coordinated with Air Traffic Control to not allow any planes or helicopters over the grounds of Drottningholm to ensure their privacy.

I don't think this video includes any private scenes, only the entrance and the outside look of the palace and I don't think Royal Court can forbid the air traffic all over the Drottningholm, it would be too much. There are two sides of everything, some of the citizens may not support royals and this kind of behaviour may cause unwanted reactions. Victoria's wedding was huge for us royalists, but for others it was an ordinary day.

This is a very complicated operation. Arlanda is not far away from Drottningholm and you can't ban every airplane from flying over Drottningholm, only for a party. Just imagine what would happen if they ban flying over Drottningholm every time they have a private party there.

Well, Arlanda is further out from Drottningholm than Bromma airport that is just 5 km away. Dont the Pentagon in Washinton DC lay straight under one of the flightpaths of one runway for one of DCs airports?

Its possible to bann flights under the height of 1000 meters over the castle. The planes going into Arlanda can descend from over 2500 meters easy in the distance between Arlanda and Drottningholm. Bromma is another issue but dont have as much flights as Arlanda.

That said, Great legs!

I just wanted to say, that there are many much airplanes that fly over this area.
Sure, it's possible to ban the flights but you can't ban them every time when they have a private party. That's a little bit too much.

Three individual persons have notified Victoria and Daniel of bribery because of using Hult´s yacht and planes during the honeymoon.
- We have received complaints and I will examine the case, said Gunnar Stetler, Director of the National Anti-Corruption Unit.
Victoria och Daniel anmälda för mutbrott - Bröllopet - Expressen
Google Translate

On the royal court it was never discussed whether it was appropriate that businessman Bertil Hult lent his yacht and plane to Victoria and Daniel.
- This was a purely personal trip, a wedding gift from an old friend of the royal family, says Ulrika Näsholm from the Information Division.
Claes Sandgren, professor at Stockholm University and chairman of the Institute of bribery, says that it is difficult to see that there may be a corruption.
- There are many indications saying that it is not. However, one can discuss whether it is appropriate or not, and there may be a conflict of interest.
Can it be that the Crown Princess went as an individual?
- The question is whether one could call it a private trip. Assuming that it is paid in order to influence and take advantage of then it is not private. But it also matters what kind of relationship they have with each other, people give gifts to their friends, said Sandgren.

If Victoria or the king had payed for such a trip everyone would scream that the apanage was to high instead. Poor Victoria, in this case the only thing you could have done to win was to spend your honeymoon in the cottage that Daniels parents have or at Solliden for 6 weeks and hope that the papers dont see you.

When i told my coworkers about this on the coffebreak they said: For the love of god, why dont they leave them alone for a while and let them really enjoy married life.

Bertil Hult is a close friend of the royal family.
The king awarded 2004 Bertil Hult with the finest royal medal, in twelfth the size of the band Seraphim. Every year Crown Princess Victoria hands out "Bertil Hult prize" for an elementary school who worked actively to prevent difficulties in reading and writing. The prize money is SEK 500 000.
Bertil Hult is a member of Motortorpedbåtsklubb where King Carl Gustaf is the chairman. Hult and Queen Silvia work in the so-called Mentor Foundation, which works with the UN anti-drug program against drugs and dependence around the world. Queen Silvia has been a godmother to one of the boats Hult had set up to race in the Whitbread Around the World.

Oh it was their honeymoon for God's sake! You can't get any private than that! Why can't people just leave them alone?
