there was broadcast another interview with them in tvn24 (television canal which transmits News 24 h per day).
They made me an impression of very simple-minded people, not cool and distanced, they even laughed a few times. I most liked their words about Pope John Paul II and his efforts for reconciliation of Cathoics & Protestants, compassion for people who lost their loved ones in memorable tsunami disaster in 2004.

Also the King's sincere confession that awareness of his ascending the throne straightly after his granfather (who, as we remember, was already elderly, when his oldest son died) was very stressful for him. But King knew that he couldn't copy the style of his grandpa, but remain himself; he said something like that:
"If you pretend to be someone you are not, it does not work for a long run"

I thought that King is taller; the Queen is also relatively short...

Is there a link where we can watch the video?

agami.pearl 05-07-2011 01:25 PM

there is other short video about the Swedish Royal Family from popular news service - Wiadomości

www.tvp.info/wiadomosci

The reporter talks how SRF is seen is Sweden and abroad. That the King is more 'down to earth' that the other monarch (especially British), whole court is less stiff and etc.
The King told that he was 27 when she became the head of state and was afraid how he will be perceived. He also told that he think that his children are better prepared to their roles.

I didn't find this link, sorry.
But it was with Polish dubbing.

Silvia❦CarlGustaf 05-08-2011 10:05 AM

IMO the royal couple seems very relaxed during the state visit. They are obviously in a very good mood. In the last few month they ssemd very keyed up! (Maybe that resulted from the hard time they went through.) Now they make the impression that everything is okay between them.
