At Instagram of the Royal Palaces

Gustaf VI Adolf had a scientist's will to understand. All areas of interest became subjects to study, whether it was rhododendron, fly fishing, art or crafts. As a student in Uppsala Gustaf Adolf read Sweden's first course in the field of archeology. Interest became permanent, and over the years he initiated several large excavations, obtained funds and participated in excavations - not only in our country but also in Greece, Italy and the Middle East.
The king was a driving force and made significant efforts for humanities. He was the patron of several institutions, academies and associations..
Due to the anniversary year #Bernadotte200, selected items from the royal collections are displayed in a jubilee showcase in Bernadotte Apartments. Now, Gustaf VI Adolf, Crown Princess Margareta and Queen Louise are noted.
Photos:
1. Gustaf Adolf in Persepolis, Iran, 1934.
2. Crown Princess Margaret and Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf are planning the wall flowerbed at Sofiero in the summer of 1917.
3. King Gustaf VI Adolf and Queen Louise examine a portfolio of graphic magazines in the Stockholm Castle, 1955.
4. Over the years, Gustaf VI Adolf built a significant collection of Chinese artifacts, and internationally he had a great reputation as a connoisseur. The collection was bequeathed to the East Asian Museum in Stockholm. A vase, from the end of the Ming dynasty, was excluded to remain as memorials.
Photos from the Bernadotte Library archive (1,2,3).

Victoria was never a HRH. She was GDH

Am I the only one who thinks he became better-looking as he was older?

To me, he's always given the impression of being a very smart man (which of course he was). It seems like none of his descendants really picked up the intellectual bent (?) Queen Margrethe has the archeological mania and the multi talents, but not quite the professorial attitude.

Louise's reaction to realizing he might want to marry her always makes me want to laugh.

At this biography at the website of The Dictionary of Swedish National Biography it is said:
"L quickly learned Swedish, with a piquant German-English accent."

Thanks, LF.

I always though Gustaf spoke English with a rather English accent (accented with Swedish).
At least that is my impression from certain videos.
