15 degrees cold, sun and sparkling snow. The Jokkmokk market has been celebrated for a total of 415 years and today, on the Sami national day, the royal couple was in place to put a golden edge on the folk party.
- It was perfect weather when they came, cold and really crispy, the sun was really sparkling in the snow crystals. But now it has become a little warmer and the royal couple does not look too frozen, says Malin Andersson at the county administrative board in Norrbotten.
Queen Silvia sat next to her and smiled in her beautiful Sami costume.
- She wore it already this morning when she arrived, and she has received a lot of compliments, Malin says.

Court website
On Thursday, February 6, the King and Queen visited Jokkmokk in connection with the Sami National Day.
The visit began with the royal couple meeting with the Sami Parliament's Chairman Per-Olof Nutti, Sirge's Sami Village Chairman Mikael Kuhmunen and Jåhkågaska's Chairman Jan-Erik Länta, who informed about the reindeer industry's conditions and challenges regarding forestry, aquaculture and mining.
In conjunction with lunch, the royal couple met, among other things, the Sami Parliament's Board and Chairmans.
After lunch, the King and Queen visited Jokkmokk market which has a long history and is regarded as an unbroken tradition for more than 400 years. In the market, the Sami national day was noticed and from a scene made of snow, The King's song was performed at the Lule Sami as well as the Sami national anthem. The King then gave a speech where he said:
"The Sami story is an important part of the Swedish. Sami traditions in everything from music to crafts enrich Swedish culture. We are reminded of this, not least here at Jokkmokk's market - a meeting place with over 400 years of history."
Sami education center
At the Sami educational center, the King and Queen got to participate in a student exhibition made by the second-year students of the craft line. The center was founded in 1942 and has since then provided education to the Sami people.
The Mountain and Sami Museum Ájtte
At the Ájtte Museum, the King and Queen received a display of a Sami handicraft exhibition and met three Sami entrepreneurs and artists. The Museum Ájtte shows exhibits about the nature of the mountain region and the Sami culture from the national border in the west and down in the forest land, 1,000 km from south to north.

According to the calendar, the king and queen attended yesterday at the Assembly Evening.
The Royal Court Parish is a parish within the Church of Sweden, and is made up of the Royal Family, those who work or have worked at the Royal Court or the Royal Staff, and their families. The parish church for the members is the Royal Chapel.
An assembly evening is held twice a year in the Bernadotte Library, which is regularly attended by The King and Queen who host the evening. A talk on a topical subject is always given on these occasions, and Court Organist Mary Ljungquist Hén arranges the music.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia met today the media, at least the photographers, outside Stenhammar Castle.

The Swedish Press Agency posted already hours ago, on their way to Stenhammar Castle "Guess who lives here"
https://scontent-hel2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...ba&oe=5ED11D48

The time in Stenhammar has done good to the king and queen, they look happy.

"Queen Silvia picks nettles outside the Stenhammar palace. She plans to cook soup for dinner. The king is a little hesitant about the soup and says:
- I probably have to go home and Google a few recipes first before I try it."

Svensk Damtidning
The royal couple took action when the corona virus burst in Stockholm. They left the capital for a quieter existence at Stenhammar Castle, outside Flen. See the pictures from their new everyday life!
Fresh spring air and fast dog walks. The royal couple may be in a strange situation. The corona virus prevents them from representing Sweden in the country, nor can they meet their children and grandchildren at this time.
But the calm existence at Stenhammar also contains a lot of light smiles. They have always longed for more free time on the castle saws, outside Flen, and now the king can also devote himself to his beloved farming!
We also get to see how the queen bends down at the stone wall to pick nettles - maybe she plans to cook a springy nettle soup for her husband! The royal couple has limited their social contacts, so no major kitchen staff now at Stenhammar.

On Thursday, May 14, the King and Queen gave digital audience to representatives from Sweden's City Missions.
During the digital representation, the King and Queen were given information about the activities of the city missions around Sweden and how they adjusted their activities on the occasion of the covid-19 pandemic.
The Royal Foundation supports the city missions
Earlier this spring, the King decided that Prince Carl Gustaf's foundation would distribute a special grant of SEK half a million to Sweden's City Missions, in order to alleviate the strain of the ongoing pandemic, especially for the country's elderly.
Operations are moving closer to target groups
On the part of the city missions, great efforts have been made to maintain the operations, as already vulnerable groups become even more vulnerable. Among other things, several businesses have moved out in the residential areas to get closer to the target groups. Lotta Säfström, chair of Sweden's city missions, told that in March the number of free meals distributed in Gothenburg doubled.
The King couple also received information on how Sweden's city missions prepare the operations for the time after the corona virus.

King Carl Gustaf inaugurated the Themed Gardens competition (This year's theme: Hemester) at Solliden today, and queen Silvia attended with the king. And Brandie attended too, of course. This is the sixth year the competition is organized in Solliden Palace Park, at Gustaf V's croquet field. This year the inauguration was done without any audience.

SVT interviewed the king and queen. The reporter asked:
Did the King have any favorite of these?
- Sure, but I'm not telling it to you now.
The king said later:
- I think it's very fun. They are real creators with great ideas. We all have that. We can all use our own thoughts and ideas and create something you know. For your own pleasure and tranquility, but also to create some excitement and tease someone, and so on ... It is up to one to come to what one thinks is exciting.
The reporter asked from queen Silvia: What do you take with you from the exhibition?
- I think it is very nice, because it is so relevant with holidays at home now. You can get ideas here on how to do it at home and have in your garden, so you can rest a little and think of other thoughts.

King Carl Gustaf delivered today The Solliden Award to The Öland Inhabitant of the Year, Gillis Dahlström, at the yard of Solliden Palace. Queen Silvia attended too as always.
https://www.instagram.com/p/CCdsskFA-Pi/
https://scontent-lga3-2.cdninstagram...95&oe=5F321E23

The royal couple paid tribute to the Öland Inhabitant of the Year
On Friday, July 10, the King awarded the Solliden Award to entrepreneur Gillis Dahlström. The award was presented at a ceremony at Solliden Palace, Öland. The Queen also attended the ceremony.
This year's Solliden Award was awarded to Gillis Dahlström and the motivation was:
This year's laureate is an entrepreneur who has taken classic food craftsmanship to new levels. Firmly rooted in the island's traditions, he has over the past decade, with his own recipe in the background, built a growing business around the Öland national dish. During the strange spring of 2020, Arontorp's kroppkakor with great creativity have found new ways to the customers' stomachs.”

King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia were present at Solliden Palace and after the award, the royal couple appeared in front of the Palace together with this year's winner.
- What about the distances and so on? the king shouted urging the people.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia attended at the delivery of the Prizes at this year's Themed Gardens competition at Solliden today.

"Earlier today, the King awarded a prize in this year's Themed Gardens Competition. The winner of the Solliden Award was Helena Gustafsson from Caradonna Trädgårdsdesign. The winner of the Visitors' Prize was Lovisa Fogelström, Trädgårdsingenjören and the Digital Prize was won by Niclas Bernehagen. Congratulations to all the winners and many thanks to the other participants who have all built such beautiful and inspiring balconies. The balconies will remain here at Solliden until 31 August."

Video at SVT News
After a little over a month's garden exhibition on Solliden, where balconies with a hemester theme were displayed, there was a royal award ceremony on Öland on Saturday.
In really pressing heat, the exhibitors stood next to the balconies they created earlier this summer. Since the inauguration in June, many visitors have wandered around Solliden's park. Maybe they got inspiration, found their favorite balcony and put their vote on it.
- You can take ideas from facilities like this and be inspired, says King Carl XVI Gustaf who handed out the various prizes.
What would a balcony look like if it was decorated by the king?
- Oh, it was difficult to answer. I have never thought about that, above all it would probably take a very long time to figure out what it would look like, he says.
At the video:
Queen Silvia: It is difficult with a home holiday. There is a place here where they have picked up memories on the balcony. Then you can sit there and read a book and think back on how it has been.
King Carl Gustaf: You can bring ideas from facilities like this to build your own little garden or whatever you have now. Not everyone may have gardens and balconies and so on. You have to take what you have. You can pick from nature the flowers that are available. There are all possibilities.
Queen Silvia: There are many ideas to take home here.
