Like the king's solicitor said in 2012: "The property has a great historical and national interest and it is important that the collection follows the throne".

From my understanding in 1963 the Swedish Government ended the legality of fideï-commis arrangements (inheritances which benefact a certain person, for an example the eldest son only) because it was infringing with the general rule that all children have the right on an equal share. For some existing arrangements however a governmental resolution was passed that exempted these from the abolition of fideï-commis. In 1964 such an exemption was made for the Galliera collection. Back then the most clever thing to do. When Crown Prince Carl Philip lost his position, nobody has really made too much of a fuss about it.

This Government could, for an example, withdraw the exemption of the Galliera collection but then the assets would be inherited equally by children of the Swedish King, and then equally by their issue, etc. etc. and so fragmentate completely. Joséphine de Beauharnais, daughter of the Duke of Leuchtenberg received the collection as a gift, together with the conditions for inheritance, a long time before she would become a Swedish royal by marriage. The option of going to the Court of Justice with the argument that "to the heirs male" really was intended: "to the Sovereign of Sweden" is without any chance of success, because it quite obviously was not intended that way when the Italian-born daughter of a French noble with a Bavarian title received this gift.

A possibility would be that the Government ends the arrangement of 1964, the King then donates it to the State of Sweden with the condition that the usufruct remains with the Sovereign. However, under such circumstances, when Sweden becomes a republic, the collection would go to the State. Another difficult situation is that Prince Carl Philip was not only stripped from his birthright on the throne but now would then be stripped from another birthright , on the Galliera collection, as he is the sole, clear and intended benefactor of the original arrangement.

So turn it to the left, or turn it to the right: the cooperation of Prince Carl Philip for this arrangement is always required. The fact that he has given his consent to ensure that his eldest sister can have the usufruct of the Galliera collection is wonderful. You seem to diminish this but the feuds, fights, lawsuits and bitter relationships amongst royal and noble families about inheritances are uncountable. With his gentlemanly and responsible behaviour Prince Carl Philip has favoured his sister and the Royal House very much. Of course.... as I already said, he will have arranged a fair compensation for abstaining all the rights on this priceless collection for himself and his future descendants.
