Regarding the relationship between stepmother and stepdaughter, Ingrid's brothers Sigvard and Carl-Johan have said that although cool at the beginning the relationship evolved to become a good one but that they were never close.
Did Queen Ingrid teach Swedish to her daughters? Since they visited their Swedish relatives regularly, I would assume she did, but I am curious to know.
