Swedes back pensioner king to carry on - The Local

A majority of Swedes are in favour of King Carl XVI Gustaf remaining on the throne despite reaching the pension age in 2011.

The king has the support of 62 percent of Swedes to carry on and not abdicate in favour of his daughter, Crown Princess Victoria, according to a new poll by Synovate published in Dagens Nyheter (DN) on Monday.

Actually, I think i would be pretty cool if the king retired (abdicated) at 65 as the rest of us Swedes (or 67). He always tried to be a modern king, and being an active pensioner who has time for journeys and interests are quite modern if you ask me BUT I dont think he will AND he has a record to beat! His great grandfather Gustav V was king of Sweden for 43 years - thats the 2:nd longest reign in Sweden:Magnus Eriksson was king of Sweden for 45 years (but he was 3 years old when he became king in 1319)... and our current king has 37 years on the throne :-) so I hope he will beat that record!

(I posted this in CP Victoria current ...(same subject)... but it belongs here too.... moderators can delete if they want)

I would have to agree with most of the Swedes on this. He should carry on. Not to mention that Victoria would have no time to be a newlywed and enjoy the first several years of her marriage. I'm thinking he's not going to do that to his daughter.

By the way, the website of the Marcus Wallenberg Prize has finally put up pictures from their award gala, which took place last September and was attended by The King and Queen, as usual:

There is hardly any room to speculate about abdication because Swedish monarchs do not abdicate.

The present King has explicitely stated that he regards his 'job' as a job for life, which further confirms that abdication can be ruled out as a possibility.
Considering the longevity of the Bernadotte males, Crown Princess Victoria might not become Queen before being in her early sixties.

Boris, thanks for the information - Sorry, I don't look in the other thread (videos&Sound clips), there are to many threads here!

The group-pics from Marcus-Wallenberg-Prize (28th September 2009) I saw, too. But I though, that are no interest for the long time before event!

'Aftonbladet' refers to an article published by 'Svensk Dam Tidning's blogger Asa yesterday.
In her story, she claimed that Queen Silvia suffers from Alzheimer's disease. The article, which was not based on any reliable information, was quickly removed by the SDT editors, The Queen denied the story, and today writer Asa offered her profuse apologies to the royal family in her blog.
Most SDT readers are understandably angry in their comments about such a mistake.

New photograph of the King and Queen

The Post of Sweden recently released new royal stamps. In connection with this they also released a beautiful photo of Their Majesties. The photo was taken in the Museum of Antiquities in the Royal Palace.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a larger version than this one: Butik - Posten.se (click on "Mer information")

The picture is fantastic. I hope that we will see it in a larger version.

After the official part of the state visit in Brazil the King and the Queen stayed for a visit in the Amazonas. Here you can see some pics. As you can read in Jenny Alexandersson's blog no press was allowed to follow. I really hope that we will see some more pics of this visit. The pics from royalcourt are nice.
