I´ll start with one of the most "famous" and known friends, Louise "Lussan" Gottlieb.

She and Madeleine have been best friends for a long time and they went to high school together, were confirmed(?) together, studied in London together and they even went to the university together.

Madeleines best friend is called Louise "Lussan" Gottlieb. Her parents Fredrik and Carola Gottlieb are close friends of the royal couple. (yennies note: they are what one may call "new friends". They were presented in the royal circle when Lussan and Madeleine became best friends)
Together with Lussan, Madeleine celebrated her 18th birthday with a party at Drottningholm. Two years later the girls also celebrated their graduation together. (From Aftonbladet)

Lussan lives(or lived!) with her parents and older brother Alexander Gottlieb on Strandvägen in Stockholm.

Lousie and her family has a summer home in Vagnhärad outside of Trosa, where Madeleine often is seen. In june august 2003 and in june 2005, the friends had parties and invited many friends. Both parties was covered by paparazzis and photos was seen in swedish press.

I have moved this thread to the main forum, since the name of this thread indicates that it will be about friend of the whole Royal Family - and not only the friends of the royal children.

Yes I have. I´ll do a post about Caroline Kreuger and post some of the photos there!

Caroline Kreuger and her sister Charlotte have known Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine all their life.
They are daughters of the late Björn Kreuger and his wife Agnetha. Björn and Agnetha got married a few days before Carl Gustaf and Silvia in 1976 and the families are very close.
Agnetha Kreuger is one of Silvias closest friends and Caroline Kreuger have been best friends with Victoria all her life. Victoria and Caroline were both born in july 1977.
Björn Kreuger was a close friend of the King since their younger years, and they remaind so until Björn passed away in 1999.

Caroline Kreuger and her sister are among the welthiest women in Sweden. They inherited their grandfather Torsten Kreuger and have about 300 million sek each.

I dont know that much about Carl Philips friends...

But when he had his graduation party in june 1999, he arranged the party with his friend Mikael. They have known eachother since they went to kindergarten together in the early 80´s.
Mikael is what one may call "a ordinary" boy = No rich or noble parents.
Carl Philip and Mikael went to Smedslättskolan and Ålstenskolan together but when Carl Philip moved to Enskilda Gymnasiet and later Lundsberg, both private schools, Mikael continued his studies at a state high school in Bromma, close to Drottningholm.

Christoffer Cederlund is also a friend of Carl Philip. Chris is dating Lotta Kreuger (Carolines sister) and they lives together in a apartment in Stockholm.

Most current pic of Lussan (together with Jan Dinkelspiel). I would say her look is still improving. In the opposite to Madeleine, she´s rather beautiful than cute.
The pic is from stureplan.se

supriya 09-02-2005 03:53 AM

The thread still exists. You can find it here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ead.php?t=6246 All wedding photos are kept in the "Old, New, Royal and Blue ..." forum and not in the forums of the particular Royal Houses.

Summary of an Expressen article:
 
Expressen reports that one of the Queen’s best friends, Baroness Charlotte Klingspor Rosenörn-Lehn (55), has died from liver cancer this past Friday. The notice of her death came totally unexpectedly as she had kept her disease a secret from her surroundings, except from the very closest friends.

Charlotte became 55 years old, and is the mother of a one year old son (which the press also noted after his birth). She lived with her husband and son at Rössjöholm’s Manor in Skåne County

In the beginning of the 1970’s she moved in the circles close to the King, and was even thought to be his girlfriend and Sweden’s future Queen at one point. Her and the King’s relationship ended up in pure friendship, and she became one of Queen Silvia’s best friends.

Charlotte went to the same school as the King in Sigtuna, and was the daughter of Baron Stig Klingspor and his wife Baroness Christina Klingspor. Charlotte grew up on Råbäck Manor outside Lidköping, and has four siblings. In 1981 she married the Austrian national hero Egon Zimmerman, the King and Queen as well as “ABBA Frida” (also a friend of Queen Silvia) were guests. In 2001 she married Baron Fritz Rosenörn-Lehn, and in February last year she became a mother to a son.

I havent seen any photos from that wedding, so perhaps they managed to escape from the paparazzis :)

How sad!

A son that is only one year old when she is 55??!!! Is it her "natural" baby??

I think she had the baby via a surrogate mother in the US, so it's not "her natural" baby. But it's really sad anyway, leaving a one year old boy and his father in this world alone. And the King must also be devastated, and of course the Queen - who was one of Charlotte's best friends. I guess they will attend the funeral, unless they keep it only for family.
