51600 SEK/7.5= 6800 US dollars. Poor Emma indeed. But I don't suppose she doesn't but all of the things she needs:

"Carl darling. will you go to the store and pick up some (name of feminine hygiene product) and a loaf of bread?"

That being said, you can go a lot further in Sweden with that amount of money that you can here.

When I was in Sweden I would say:

Sweden is extraordinary expensive.
At least from my point of view!

Hasn´t Emma a more or less rich daddy, who pays for her? I remember that I´ve read something like that. I believe he has an advertising agency.
And that with the fortune is really strange. I bet Daniel, Emma and Jonas have saving books, shares...but that´s not recorded (in the list)

Imagine Scandinavia, Stockholm, Sverige. Queen Silvia, with friends, came walking to the Cathedral concert on Wednesday night. The walk was about 200 meters from the Royal Palace. Seen here: The Queen arriving at the Cathedral's north entrance, that faces the Royal Palace

I would not have though Carl would have more money than Victoria... is it because he is a male and she is a female??

I think the reason why Carl Philip has more money than Victoria is that when she becomes Queen she will have the money that "goes along with it", the "apanage". But I dont think Carl Philip and Madeleine will get as much money, if any?!, as Victoria, so thats probably why they have more money than her right now

I got thinking: the heritage from prince Bertil??? Of course Princess Lilian got her legal part of the money, but I was wondering about that Prince C-P maybe got like a house and even some money, could that be an explanation?

I was thinking that the recent controversy about the King and his successor .....

Yennie .... is there a new law coming (down the pike) about a retro-active change to the RF ?

I am inclined to believe that I would be fussed too, if the law is changed which would change my past.

To take it - this scenario of retro-active changers - to the extreme, consider the following example of if the law were changed tomorrow, that states that since 1985, Queen Sylvia is the "Head of State" ... how would you feel about it ???????

Here I go again. Good practice:

Queen Silvia has saved the monarchy(Good start)

In two days time, Queen Silvia will be turning 60 years old. Few queens have ever been as popular as her and hardly 1 of the 71 queens Sweden has had since the day that Eric Segersälls in the 9th century(900 tal) started the Swedish monarchy, but she is still is in the upper echelon of queens as the most royal of queens since the beginning despite her not being born a royal.(Something like that). There were only(just, merely) two such before her and they were Karin Månsdotter ( 1550-1612) married to Erik XIV and Désirée Clary (1777-1860) married to Karl XIV Johan.(stupid service used the other meaning of gift; poison! Wait a minute. I thought she married Oskar 1) Just 21 of the queens have been Swedish women, the large majority(majoriteten&#33 have come from abroad with the most(20) coming from German principalities.

The history of the Swedish queens is dramatic, often mournful, and sometimes a bloody history as well. We know few of the early queens and in certain cases the man didn't say her name or let it be known and many became myths and some of the medieval queens became(lost) up to and including the local saint, Elin of Skövde, the tempestous(from the wind) daughter from Västergötland who according to tradition was married to king Inge in her youth. She was called Saint Helena. Coming home after a pilgrimage from Rome, she was murdered.(Helig dynga&#33 Inge then married another pious woman. who also travelled to Rome, came home and died whereupon she became the local saint Ragnhild of Tälje (1075-1117).

After all of this, Inge got tired of religious women(such a man) and got married to the tempestous Norwegian called Ulfhild Håkansdotter( 1095-1148). who showed herself to be a really dangerous woman!, a murderess by poison, and the intriguing spouse that Shakespeared measured(sized up, wrote about) and obviously without the smallest ambition to travel to Rome.(Technically, that doesn't make sense. So she wasn't religious. Still Rome had a lot of power. Anyway.) According to the crown or chronology of events, she was stupid or short after the wedding she received her man and killed(!!&#33 the same king(! or the swimming king&#33 and his older brother Filip. In time, Inge(must have been the Lappish king then) died too(Died down. Odd. I saw that coming), after he had consumed the "wicked drink"(Good grief). Then she married the Danish King Niels Svendsson and he was also stupid(and maybe short) and thereafter he died under obscure circumstances whereupon she married for the 3rd time. This time was with a new Swede, King Sverker who gave her a son who became Karl Sverkersson.(Sverker's son. Really original). From this time forward, she had a bad conscience(Yeah! Yeah! Yeah&#33 and probably managed herself(to get a hold of), founded Alvastra monastery and later founded Nydala monastery. She died in 1148 with few regrets?


The destiny of the queen? has been a heavy burden for many a young girl of political and dynastic cause(reason,) to be sent up to Sweden, to a country they have never seen, to a husband they have never seen, and to speak a language they have never heard. So they come to Sweden and they must forget their homeland, and must never meet again any of their relatives. She ends the task as soon as possible so that the man will gladly get several sons! so that the order of succession is secured.(Foda. Food?) Up to the 19th century, it was unusual for the queen and her husband to meet prior to her coming to Sweden. She was easily very rich, beautiul and sensible but not too wise as to be unwise or wiser than the king? In any case, it was a mark or noticeable.

Many queens were quite young. Flippa of England was only 13 when she married King Erik from Pommern. 15 year old queens was somewhat normal not only in medieval times but later as well. Gustav Vasa was a toothless, drooling 15 year old teenager when he married Katarina Stenbock who was 16. Karin Månsdotter was 15 when Erik XIV either fell into her clutches or fought tooth and nail for her. Johan III, himself a sickly man, became an old man after he took Gunilla Bielke (1568-1597) for his wife.(I'm sure there's a compliment in there somewhere) When she was 15 like past queens and queens-to-be(blivande a something to be), Queen Josefina (1807-1876 appealed to the future king, Oscar 1.

Then when in the year 1976, the German Miss(Fraulein, if you will) Silvia Sommerlath married life-happy(happy-go-lucky) King Carl Gustav, the monarchy was weak. This was a radical shift in policy.(Blew the winds of policy?) The royal court operated by and large as others did what they wanted to do as in the days of the past kings. Risking a very great part, the Royal house became a Nordic version of the House of Windsor with all of its scandals. In this case, we have had a republic already for 20 years or so. Queen Silvia showed(guided) herself(to be) the most goal-oriented(ambitious but in a nice way) and ambitious(O, well) women with her smile and her breezy charisma in the half-dead life of the Swedish monarchy.(She blew new life into it). Her energy made the royal family become a royal house for
"Sweden in our time"(Sweden for now).
