King Carl Gustaf's speech at the website of the Royal Court:

The week leading up to Easter is commonly called Holy Week.
Today, Palm Sunday, marks the beginning of this solemn week. And in many places the mood is more solemn than ever.
COVID-19 has Sweden and the world in its grip. Streets and squares are empty and quiet.
The pandemic has dealt a major blow to our businesses, workers and the Swedish economy – to Swedish society as a whole.
At the same time, in other parts of our society, the week ahead will be all but quiet.
Civic mobilisation is taking place. I am thinking in particular of the health care sector. There, employees and volunteers are now working – together – to save as many lives as they can.
This is a huge task. It requires courage. And it will require endurance. To all of you involved in this vital work, I offer my heartfelt thanks.
Let us turn our thoughts to everyone who is working to ensure that the rest of Sweden continues to function – despite the constraints of the situation and despite the risks to their own health.
And to those of You making sure that older people receive the care they need, that we can buy food, that public transport continues to operate, and everything else we so easily take for granted – my warmest thanks to You all.
As I mentioned, Holy Week leads us to Easter. For me, and for many people in our country, this is an important celebration and one we look forward to.
It is a time when we are keen to travel and perhaps spend time with family and friends. Many go to church.
But, this Easter, some of this will not be possible. We have to accept this. We have to rethink, prepare ourselves for staying home.
We might feel sad about this. But there will be more Easter holidays. After all, for most us, this will require relatively minor sacrifices – especially if we compare this to falling seriously ill or losing a friend or member of our family.
Today, I am thinking especially of all the children in our country who are now at risk of losing grandparents. Of missing out on the security and wisdom they can offer.
For their sake, we must act responsibly and selflessly. Everyone in our country has this obligation. Each and every one of us.
There is still a great deal of uncertainty. But one thing is certain: we will remember these times and look back on them.
Did I think about other people? Or did I put myself first? We will have to live with the choices we make today, for a long time to come. They will impact many.
Easter will soon be here. And whether or not we celebrate it, I believe that we can embrace its message:
The journey is long and arduous. But in the end, light triumphs over darkness, and we will be able to feel hope again.
In a few weeks’ time, I will be 74. That’s quite an age. But this also means that I have experienced many of the crises that our country has endured.
I have seen how crises help us to re-evaluate, to distinguish between important and unimportant. How fear turns into an understanding of the seriousness of the problem and how it can be solved.
And one thing I have learned is this: however deep or protracted a crisis becomes, it will ultimately come to an end.
And when this one does, we will all benefit from the consideration and strength that the Swedish people are now demonstrating.
This strength will be an asset to our country – in the future that we are longing for.
It remains for me now to wish You and everyone in Sweden an enjoyable Easter – in spite of everything.
And though it might be hard, remember: You are not alone.

A nice speech, especially the way in which he gave credit to the contributions of private citizens across the country.

The address to the nation was delivered much later than those of most of the king's fellow European monarchs, and I wonder if that is due to the lower amount of government intervention in Sweden in response to the pandemic and/or the uniquely Swedish requirement that the King maintain his distance from the government.

Interesting that Easter and Holy Week are given a great deal of meaning in his speech, though most Swedes are not regular churchgoers.

I would be interested to know which crises from the past 74 years were in the King's thoughts.

The economic ones, perhaps? Assassination of Palme? I probably shouldn't presume to guess.

I haven't listened, but on paper it was a nice address from CG as well.

The king gave a statement in Sweden's Television already on 18th March in connection with the extra Council of State.
https://www.theroyalforums.com/forum...ml#post2301889
About the crisis, I think the king thought at least M / S Estonia's sinking (551 Swedes were killed), the Tsunami (543 Swedes were killed) and The Stockholm Terror Attack in 2017, the assassinations of prime minister Olof Palme and the Minister for Foreign Affairs Anna Lindh and the economic crisis in the 1990s.

The king appeals to the Swedish people to stay at home.
In his greeting to the people he talked about - and to the children.
- For their sake we must act responsibly and unselfishly. We all have that obligation in our country, each of us, said Carl XVI Gustaf and wished everyone a nice Easter weekend - after all.

Covid-19 has Sweden and the world in its grip and now we must act responsibly and selflessly. It is an obligation we all have to our country. That's what Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf says in a television greeting to the Swedish people.

During the evening, the King spoke on the telephone with the prime minister to get the latest information on the government's work on the covid 19 pandemic.
According to the form of government, the prime minister is responsible for keeping the head of state informed of the affairs of the state. Due to the extraordinary situation that Sweden is in right now, the King and the Prime Minister have closer contacts than normal.

Margareta Thorgren said to Svensk Damtidning about the king's and prime minister's phone meeting:

- During the evening, the king spoke on the telephone with the prime minister to get the latest information about the government's work on the covid 19 pandemic.
What caused this meeting?
- It is the government's duty to inform the Head of State of important events.
Was it the king who invited the prime minister? Or was it the opposite?
- It was a joint initiative.
Margareta Thorgren also says that during the days leading up to Easter, the king will have a series of digital meetings, and the same applies to the Crown Princess couple.
