Christmas story with Princess Christina part 2
Princess Christina reads a Christmas story based on the Royal Chapel's nativity scene. The princess tells about how wise men in distant land get to see a new star in the night sky. They ask themselves what can it mean and whether they should dare to follow it. Once they follow it, it turns out that they still go to the wrong place and now they are helpless. "What do we do now?" They ask. How will they find their way in the darkness that now reigns in the world?

The speech will be broadcast at SVT1 in the evening at 19.45.

As expected, the King spoke about the corona pandemic during his Christmas speech.
He appealed to the Swedish people that we all have a responsibility.
- Two meters distance can save lives, but it can also make a two minute phone call.
At the same time, the king looked ahead, urging everyone to persevere:
- Vaccine is on its way. In just a few months, a lot may have changed.

Many people probably experience 2020 as a lost year, a view that also seems to be shared by King Carl XVI Gustaf. In his Christmas speech from Drottningholm Palace, the head of state therefore chooses to look forward to a better 2021:
- The light comes back. Vaccine is on its way. And already in a few months a lot may have changed, we must believe in the future.

Christmas story with Princess Christina part 1
Princess Christina reads a Christmas story based on the Royal Chapel's nativity scene. Before Christmas's big story about the child in the manger, Princess Christina reads from Court Chaplain Karin Karlberg's separate stories about the Christmas Gospel seen from a few different perspectives. In the Christmas Day's episode, the princess tells of an imagined conversation between Josef and the ox in the stable.

It's always a pleasure to listen princess Christina.
Why is the speech broadcast at such a late hour?

The speech is first aired in the Radio around noon, and then in TV after the most watched news broadcast and before the primetime program at 20.00.

In my opinion the King couldn't wish for a more prominent time for his speech.

This year's viewing figures were 1 345 000. The figures have, according to what I can find, been fairly consistent since the speech was first televised in 2007. Before that they were only transmitted by radio.
