The king and queen visit today Kronan School in Trollhättan, where a man killed three people on 22nd October. The visit has been planned in consultation with the school management and until now have only a selected few knew about the Royal visit.
– The Royal couple are at the school to show their respect and to have the opportunity to meet students, teachers and school management. They also wish to express their sympathy. It is an own initiative of the King and Queen, says Margareta Thorgren.
The idea is that the King and Queen will meet with several of the students who were in the school when the violent murder occurred.

Amazement was great when none other than the King came to the asylum reception center in Grytan. Some of the asylum seekers were given even a separate audience with the majesty at a tepee.
The king changed the plans and stepped out of his car earlier than planned and went to meet the refugees.
The King's driver told:
- He just said - I want to get off here...
Many were fascinated that a king could just go around and chat with them.
- At home in Yemen, it is impossible that a head of state would only come on a visit like this. It was very nice, commented Yusra Abohadi.
Ziad Al-Lahwani from Syria and Mohammad Arif Elham from Afghanistan agreed that this was a highly sensational event.
- We are very flattered. Though I believe that each one of all who live here would like to sit down with the king and tell him about their problems, said Ziad.

Queen Silvia met on Monday representatives of Non-Violence Project Sweden:
"Thank You Your Majesty the Queen that you support us in our work with non-violence education for children and young people in Sweden. Today, we have presented our work and handed a gift - a revolver designed by Ringo Starr. Knowledge is Power!"
https://www.facebook.com/NVPSweden/p...type=3&theater

Queen Silvia's support for Swedish drug policy and her commitment to the issue of drugs is both controversial and political. This is said by number of drug researchers SVT News talked to.
The queen has been long time committed to the drug issue, she has taken a clear definition stand both for zero tolerance against drugs and for drug-free society.
In early October, The Queen opened the conference Sweden against drugs, organized by a number of popular movements against drugs. The conference also received the so-called royal patronage.
But the commitment is now being questioned by researchers.
- Today the political disagreement is greater than ever in drug issues, says Björn Johnson, drug researcher at Malmö University, who believes that the Queen's involvement is problematic.

Quote:
The King of Sweden has called for a ban on bathtubs to help cut emissions in an interview ahead of UN climate talks in Paris.

“All bathtubs should be banned. Just imagine it!”, Carl XVI Gustaf exclaimed to the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper.

He said that the idea had come to him the day before the interview as he was going through his morning routine in a room which lacked a shower, forcing him to run a bath.

“It took a lot of fresh water and energy,” the king said. “It struck me so clearly: it’s not wise that I have to do this. I really felt ashamed then, I really did.”

Later in the interview, he stressed that the suggestion was “lighthearted”

“But there is a truth there,” he stressed. “Those small details have an enormous effect.”

Säveån salmon got the royal attention on Monday. King Carl Gustaf visited Jonsered currents in Partille municipality and was told about the work to improve the habitat of the unique salmon stock.
As an angler and engaged in the fishery conservation issues the king was very interested to see the results of the improved migration routes for fish.
- It is important to convey that there will be good results of this type of work. There will also be bonus effects around, he said during his visit.
