The king takes off from work and travels to Mexico on a private trip in eight days. The news was given by the Marshall of the Realm to the ministers at government's meeting today. Although Crown Princess Victoria is heavily pregnant, she jumps in as a substitute and takes over the king's duties.
The Ministry of Justice's protocol made after the meeting shows that Carl XVI Gustaf is in Mexico during the period January 23 to 31, and that he therefore is "unable to perform his duties as the Head of State". Crown Princess Victoria takes over as temporary regent and fulfills the tasks of the Head of State when he is away. And then it does not matter that she is heavily pregnant.
Margareta Thorgren stated earlier this week that there is no fixed end date for when she stops working before giving birth.
- The Crown Princess will work as far as possible to the birth, she told to Expressen's Johan T Lindwall.
Crown Princess Victoria has previously been standing in for the king as Head of State in connection with state visits abroad.
Expressen has sought Thorgren for a comment.

The queen doesn't have work events during that time either, so it seems that she will accompany the king on a trip to Mexico.

It seems that the queen isn't in Mexico with the king.

Queen Silvia was last Saturday in Essen, Germany. At the concert of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.

Of course it is possible that the queen went later to Mexico, I just thought that they would have travelled together...

@Lady Finn - I don't see the need for the court to emphasize that Victoria will act as regent "while heavily pregnant". Pregnancy is not a disease and Victoria has been trained for this position since she was three, when the succession law changed in 1979. And if the heir is unable to act as regent - or when the day comes sovereign - who becomes regent? Carl Philip? If so, he would only have a fifteen year window for the regency to be open to him. When Estelle and Baby Bernadotte Westling no. 2 reach majority Carl Philip steps back to the no. 4 position (or 3, when Victoria takes the throne).

Queen Silvia's unknown millions
The king and his children are major owners of the stock market, with portfolios ranging in size from 10-55 million.
Hitherto unknown ownership information which Expressen's Dina Pengar has fund shows that even Queen Silvia has a completely own portfolio.
- We usually never comment on individual holdings, but the probability that the data is correct is quite large, says Jan Lindman from the court.
At last the record date, the end of December, the portfolio was worth just over 4.8 million SEK.
The portfolio consists of the renowned engineering company Sandvik, forestry and hygiene giant SCA, Wallenberg's Investor and billionaire Gustaf Douglas's investment company Latour. The fifth-known holding is Swedish business's most powerful man Fredrik Lundberg investment company that bears his name.
- Long-term investments in Swedish industry, it is that we tend to reason. It is the same philosophy as with the rest of the royal family when it comes to their financial investments, says Jan Lindman.

As we already knew, the queen went to a concert in Essen in Germany, when the king flew to his fishing trip to Mexico. Svensk Damtidning's article just quotes the articles which has been at the press about the king's trip to Cabo San Lucas. And that the queen wasn't with him and Margareta Thorgren said that because the trips were private, they don't comment them. Svensk Damtidning writes that the queen likes to go to trips in the sun or skiing trips with her female friends, and she has also gone to see her grandchildren alone many times.

Yes. Obviously Svensk Damtidning didn't know at all that the queen was in Essen, that wasn't mentioned at the article.

The king delivered today H.M. The King's Medals and Litteris et Artibus medals. The queen attended at the delivery too. The king also rewarded three court employees for long and faithful service (30 years) with a watch.
H.M. The King's Medal is presented to Swedish and foreign citizens for special merit.
Litteris et Artibus (1853) is awarded for outstanding service to the arts, especially to music, dramatic art and literature.

The king gave on Friday formal audiences to new ambassadors: Malaysia's ambassador Norlin Othman, Czech Ambassador Jiri Sitting, Cuban Ambassador Rosario Navas Morata and Guinean Ambassador Fatoumata Balde.
At the ceremony, the ambassadors submit their credentials, a document from their head of state to the King, who then grants them the formal right to work in Sweden. The king has about fifteen minutes discussion with each ambassador.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia gave on Tuesday 2nd February an interview to the editor-in-chief Erika Funke from Gods & Gårdar magazine at the Royal Palace. Gods & Gårdar is a magazine which writes about castles and manors and other historical homes.

Erika Funke got an hour long interview with the king and queen about their summer and garden life at Solliden.
- It was a good conversation, when both the king and queen shared their feelings for Solliden and involvement in the gardens. The Queen spoke warmly of her fuchsias, which according to her has to be seen from below, and how delightful it is to get closer to her grandchildren during the calm moments at Solliden. The king shared generously his memories of childhood, with the happy Öland farmers and slippery bike rides on the way to the beach. He said he wanted to give something "piquant" to Gods & Gårdar readers, and that he really managed!, says Erika Funke.

The interview and article will be published in Gods & Gårdar's big anniversary issue, nr 6 this year.
