Examiner - New Crown Princess Victoria book to be released

I would like to read that book, but it's rather not to buy in polish bookshops in polish language, I suppose. I am looking forward to weddings both swedish princesses. Great event.

I've just create new social group: if you like Victoria, join us:)

Oh,I was looking forward to reading a book about Victoria.I'm so glad it's coming out before her wedding!The author seems close to the SRF,he was Victoria's history teacher after all.I hope he's as close to the truth as possible!

SusanneSNS 10-10-2009 01:12 PM

Wll the book be available in English language, too?
 
Does someone know if the book will be released in English, too?
It would be great to read the whole story in Victorias words and to learn about the truth. Not only to read the rumours we always get in our German magazines.

:previous: I took it for granted :cool: Don't tell me it won't be translated!!
It will be such a pity if the book is finally published in Sweden only.

HelloMagazine.com has an article about the book & a brief summary what it talks about.

MelinaB. 10-14-2009 03:57 PM

Thank you for the article,Dazzling!I'm a bit disappointed that the book focuses mainly on her relationship with Daniel-I didn't notice this before-I thought there would be more than that.But I'm still eager to read it.

In case anybody is interested. Now I realize it is in Swedish but I am currently reading as much of it as I can for translation so if anyone would like an English copy you just let me know.

Victoria's book
 
I don't know if the proposition is still OK but I would be very interested by some English translations about the content of the book from Lundqvist
Thanks!

Does anyone know of any shops or bookstores in Manhattan that sell Swedish royal books like this one? I'm heading to NYC next week.

Has the book been printed in English yet?

I did. Overall, I was a bit disappointed- it was shorter than I expected, had rather simplistic text (but maybe that had to do with the translation?), and didn't go into any of the topics in any significant detail, IMO. (For instance, pretty much everything Victoria said about Daniel was covered in articles published when the book came out.)

However, I am a relatively new follower of Victoria and the SRF so most of what I read was new to me (I sometimes got the impression it would mostly be "old news" for more knowledgeable people). And there definitely WAS some interesting information- nice quotes, funny anecdotes, etc.

Hmm, I'm not sure how much I've actually helped ("I was disappointed, but it was good..."). Sorry! :sad: I guess it depends on what your expectations are and what information you are hoping to get from the book. If it's something specific you (or anyone on the board) is looking for, I could just post some relevant excerpts.

Great cover.

Hi thanks for your reply. I'm particularly interested in Victoria's childhood since we know a lot about her public life as an adult. For instance, I liked the anecdote about her preferring that her nanny rather than the King accompanying her to school picnics because there would be a great fuss. It would be great if you could summarise some interesting parts if you have time. Thanks :smile:
