Siliva Sommerlath was one of the senior/more important hostesses at the Olympic Games in Münich and as such she worked as a hostess for several V.I.P.:s, one of them was the then crown prince Carl Gustav of Sweden. He saw her in the V.I.P. lounge, she noticed him looking at her through binoculars even if she was sitting just a few metres away. Carl Gustav asked Siliva for a date and that's how it began.
