When did boys typically start wearing suits in Lennart's day?

That's quite the amount of glitter.

-It's a sweet picture.
-Poor Edmund, and poor CG. This must be one of the only ways he knew his father.
-I wonder if CG has his grandfather and great-grandfather's longevity genes...?

Victoria participated yesterday in the celebration of Gothenburg's 400th anniversary. The Royal Court published at its Facebook photos from Bernadotte Library's files, king Gustaf V visiting the 300th anniversary and the Anniversary Exhibition in Gothenburg. Even then anniversary of the city was also moved forward and took place in 1923.

King Carl XVI Gustaf later said that he had been in the lap of someone, who had been in the lap of Napoleon's first fiancée.
(Gustaf V's great-grandmother Désirée had indeed been engaged to Napoleon.)
That makes you feel how far back the Bernadotte dynasty goes...

Apparently there was a movie made about Kurt Haijby and his relationship with Gustav and the consequences. https://youtu.be/dN1YzVuGE-A (The trailer contains some brief nudity so I'll leave the link like this.)

I wonder how it was received in Sweden?

Actually, I don't believe that it would be considered as scandalous as it was back in the '50s.

I think either the blackmail or some of Haijby's subsequent treatment or the strong evidence Gustav seems to have propositioned a lot of men, including people in the government, still might not go over great. Although today a king might have more sense than to hit on the prime minister, back then he still had actual power.
