Many royal books to be released 2006!

Next year is a good year when it comes to royal celebrations in Sweden – the King turns 60 and the King and Queen will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary!

2006 will also be a good year when it comes to new royal books, something which I always look forward too and appreciate. And as I am one who follows the book business a bit, I have found out that next year will indeed have some promising releases by the Swedish publishing houses about the Royal House of Sweden.

- For the King’s 60th birthday the book “Carl XVI Gustaf – conversations with the times” will be released, authored by one of Sweden’s most popular historians, Herman Lindqvist and Court Marshal Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg. The King has personally contributed to this book via long interviews with Mr Lindqvist, and some new light will surely be shed one a few issues. Published by Ekerlids, release in March 2006.

- Another books about the King will also be released, an anthology called “For Sweden – these days” (För Sverige – nuförtiden) with contributions by a number of famous Swedes, amoing them party leader Fredrik Reinfeldt, magazine editor Amelia Adamo and journalist and author Cecilia Hagen. Published by Bokförlaget DN, newspaper Dagens Nyheter’s own publishing company.

- A new book about the Queen is also on its way, “Beloved Silvia” (Älskade Silvia) by Jan Törnqvists and published by Prisma, promises new pictures and personal reflections from friends and family of the Queen.

- About the King’s father, Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf, the book “He whom never became King” (Han som aldrig fick bli kung) will be released covering his life and the faith of never becoming King (as he died in a plane crash). The book is authored by Per Svensson, cultural editor at Expressen and will be published by Norstedts.

- About Queen Victoria of Sweden’s beloved haven, the book “Queen Victoria’s Solliden” (Drottning Victorias Solliden) will be released by publishing house Byggförlaget, authored by Jangfeldt, Ekberg and Ericsson.

Same here, I like the hair but the dress is so boxie looking. It doesn't flatter her at all.

Half pony-tail...it's a start. Hopefully there won't be a ponytail at least for awhile. I didn't really like her black dress, made her look too old. But the hair is a step in the right direction! Carl Philip is handsome as always...:)

Is it just me or is Victoria looking very thin in these new pictures?
Also, are the new books about the family going to be released in English?

Yes, I think she's looking very thin too - but if you look at her face she looks very warm and "alive", which I don't think she did back in the day when she was diagnosed with her eating disorder. But she's very thin, I agree on that.

I don't know if the books will be available in English, I don't think they will be when they are first released, but who knows what will happen after a while...

Summary of an Expressen article:


Picture by Ulf Ryd, Expressen

A few weeks ago the “grand old man” of the Bernadotte family, Count Carl Johan Bernadotte (89) was submitted into the Hospital of Helsingborg for severe stomach pains. His wife, Countess Gunilla Bernadotte said to Expressen that he has suffered an intestine infarction, but that he is doing much better now and will probably be released from the hospital in a few days.

King Carl Gustaf was informed of his only uncle’s health condition and hospitalization at the time it happened, and yesterday he was also informed that Count Carl Johan is doing better.


For the full & original article (in Swedish), go here.

I agree, she looks thin. But IMO she did the whole year 2005 and already at the NPA 2004. It just shows now very much, since she wears so much black (for some ODD reason Victoria prefers black for duties in Sweden. As if it wouldn´t be dark enough there at this time of the year) I guess shape-wise she will look the same at the NPA as last year.

I fear, they won´t be released in English. Even not the popular biographies on Silvia (released in 2001) and on Victoria (released in 2002) were translated into other languages (german, english...). But this fact has improved my Swedish. So not a bad side effect. :)

I´m glad to read Carl Johan is better. In the past years the SRF has lost many of the "grand old men" (Bertil, Lennart...and if I may say so Sigvard...I liked his fight), so let´s hope Carl Johan will stay with us longer...

Victoria has started to wear her hair down much more lately. I think that it lookes lovely on her and is a nice change from the ponytail (that I´m sure will come back to haunt us next year aswell... )

Crown Princess Victoria, left, Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustaf, right, light candles for the dead and missing in last years's tsunami during a ceremony to mark the anniversary, Monday, Dec. 26, 2005, in Stockholm, Sweden. At least 543 Swedes were among the more than 200,000 victims who perished in the tidal waves around the Indian Ocean on Dec. 26 last year or still remain missing a year later.

Here are a few more pictures from the official memorial ceremony at the Skansen Open Air Museum in Stockholm this afternoon, commemorating the first year anniversary of the tsunami.

I along with many other Swedes watched it live on television in the afternoon, and my judgement of it is that it was very well carried out, simple and with the rememberance in the center of everything. The ceremony was very "still" and solemn, the decorations simple (bare, undecorated, trees on the stage for example) and quite short. Only a few speeches, some songs by singers and a choir and a poem was read.

543 candles, one for each Swede who died in the tsunami, formed a path through the audience and up to the stage - something which made it very clear that they were the center of this ceremony, the mourning of them and the loss for Sweden.

Sweden mourns hundreds who died in Asian tsunami

STOCKHOLM, Dec 26 (AFP) - Sweden, which suffered more deaths in the Indian Ocean tsunami than any nation outside Asia, remembered its 543 citizens who died in the disaster one year ago.
(...)
Muffled against the cold they took part in a 45-minute ceremony at which the country's King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prime Minister Goran Persson were present. Hymns were sung and poems read.
