For those who remember Victoria's participation in the memorial service at Stockholm's Great Synagogue on Holocaust Rememberance Day this year, Livi Fränkel is the lady with the walker who followed Victoria out of the synagogue.
I've said it before, but I feel its worth repeating that handing out the award to Hédi Fried was, in my opinion, a very good decision by the King.

Crown Princess Victoria will also hold an audience with Hedi Fried tomorrow.

Yes, I'm looking forward to that. They've met many times and were both part of the Swedish delegation to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in 2015. Hédi was standing right next to Victoria when Rolf Fredriksson, a reporter from SVT, asked his infamous question about her ancestor's Nazi involvement.
A completely justifiable question that Victoria handled well, but one that was made at the wrong occasion and shocked many of those around them so much that audible gasps can be heard.

King Carl Gustaf delivered H.M. The King's medals for contributions in Swedish sport at a ceremony in Princess Sibylla's apartments at the Royal Palace. Queen Silvia attended too. The medal, which is new from 2019, is in the 5th size in gold and on the medal ribbon there is a horizontal bay leaf branch in gold.
Daniel's second cousin Frida Hansdotter, the olympic champion in women's slalom, was one of the recipients.

ROYAL: Silvia und Carl Gustaf nehmen an Medaillenverleihungen für Verdienste am schwedischen Sport im königlichen Palast teil

At the ceremony attended, among others, Andre Myhrer, Frida Hansdotter and the women's curling team, who won the Olympic gold in South Korea.
- It's a great feeling. You feel incredibly welcome, so it's really nice to come here, says Andre Myhrer.
- Continue with this so you keep the Swedish flag high abroad where you compete, we think it is fun that can not be included but see it at home on TV.
Several of the medalists also experience it as a great support with a royal family who are personally so interested in sports:
- It is so awesome to have a king who genuinely becomes happy about how it goes for us. We really feel it, and it is an incredible honor that we got to meet him in the Olympic village and feel his support, says Anna Hasselborg in the Swedish curling national team, who tells how King Carl Gustaf greeted the team during the Olympic Games in South Korea last year.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia arrived to Austria yesterday to follow the Fis Nordic World Ski Championsships in Seefeld.

Aftonbladet's Sportsbladet meets a really snotty-nosed king before the women's skiathlon. He coughs a couple of times before giving his views on the upcoming competitions.
- You should always have high expectations. You have to. Then what happens, we'll see. It's just to keep all your thumbs in your pockets and hope that everything goes well. That waxing works, that skis work. Now it has to work.
Ebba Andersson is ill. How disappointed did you get when you heard it?
- It's a shame. It would be fun to see how strong she is against the other international comrades, with whom she in fact skis with and meets a lot. It would have been fun to see how far she had come. But there are more competitions. They are young.
Are you going to cry and shout now?
- No, I'll take it easy. I have a sore throat.
The royal family has grown over the past few years, so the calendar is full of meaningful days. One of them is just today. Princess Estelle turns seven, which the royal couple cannot celebrate home in Sweden.
Though Carl Gustaf has been forethoughtful.
- We greeted her before, the day before yesterday, so it is already done. It is important to stay ahead of time all the time so that you are involved, he says.
What did you give as a gift?
- I can't talk about that.

Today king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia followed the Women's and Men's Team Sprints. The swedish women won the gold medal, in men Sweden became fourth.
Image Upper.com - Free Image Hosting - View Image

The king and queen visit the ski team at the hotel in Seefeld. There, the King and Queen Silvia will have dinner together with the national team skiers and all the leaders.
It will be a golden dinner after Stina Nilsson and Maja Dahlqvist's victory.
- We have had a tradition during championships. It is appreciated by everyone, says Johan Sares, head of the Swedish Ski Association.
But the king will have to keep a certain distance to the riders.
The king has cold
- He has been wheezy in the bronchial tubes for a long time and has eaten antibiotics. But there should not be a risk of infection, says Johan Sares.
But...?
- He will not sit next to any skiers, says Johan Sares.
No royal hugs then?
- No. The queen will take care of those, joked Sares.

I found this interesting but I stumbled upon Kungahuset's article about the King and Queen in Austria however when you click on it, it appears to be a broken link. However if you "translate the page" you can read the article. It does not appear on the website's homepage or on the article archives so perhaps they will release it tomorrow? Never the less here it is- very brief.
