King Carl Gustaf's statement due to the death of Peter Wallenberg:
Uttalande med anledning av Peter Wallenbergs bortgång - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

Peter Wallenberg, the patriarch of one of Sweden’s most powerful and influential families, died at his home on Monday. He was 88.
Mr. Wallenberg was the head of a dynasty of bankers, industrialist, politicians and diplomats that has shaped Swedish society. The family, through its investment vehicle Investor AB, has interests in some of Sweden’s largest companies, including Astra Zeneca, Ericsson, SAAB and SEB.

Maybe it is taken on 8th May 2014, when Michel Issa was one of King's Young Leadership scholarship winners. He has the same clothes and the pin. On that day is always a seminar and the delivery of the scholarships. Maybe there is a private dinner in the end of the day where the queen attends, although it isn't mentioned at the website.

The king and queen have been tonight at the premiere of Magnus Härenstam's "Morsning & Goodbye" at the Intiman Theatre in Stockholm.

Magnus Härenstam told about this royal visit already some days ago. The king and queen have been many times at his performances. His show was a big success in 2012. Härenstam has cancer and he has had to cancel his show twice after 2012. Now he starts with four shows. In this comic monologue he delivers accurate reflection upon life's events and the difficult, but fun art to mature gracefully.

The king and queen visited Härenstam at the break, he was very flattered that they came to meet him.
