The King's traditional Christmas speech has just been broadcast at Sveriges Radio, and will be shown at SVT1 in the evening.
SVT has put the speech to its website already now, video:
H.M. Konungens jultal _ SVT Play

We see at the desk a photo of queen Silvia and the group photo of the Royal Family taken this summer. We see also the book "Upptäck Sverige med kronprinsessan Victoria" about crown princess Victoria's province hikes at the desk.

H.M. Konungens jultal 2021 - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

During his Christmas speech, His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf especially highlighted those who lost a loved one during what was to be another year marked by the pandemic.
- I can not say anything that fills that emptiness. But I still want, in this way, to send a greeting, a thought, to you, said the king.
Kungens hälsning till dem som förlorat någon nära

At SVT1 is broadcasted in the evening a Greeting from the Royal Chapel, where princess Christina reads a Christmas story based on one of the figures in the nativity scene.
The program has already now been put to SVT Play:
Princess Christina says: "Good continuation of the Christmas weekend and a warm welcome to the Royal Chapel and to us at the Royal Court Parish. When darkness surrounds us like this in December, we need to gather around what gives us warmth and light in life. And what better way than for us to turn to the main character of Christmas, the child in the manger. Tonight I want to read a story written by one of our court chaplain Karin Karlberg. In tonight's Christmas story, we get to listen to a donkey who is dreaming."

At SVT1 was broadcasted in the evening a second episode of a Greeting from the Royal Chapel, where princess Christina read a Christmas story based on one of the figures in the nativity scene.
Princess Christina said: "Tonight I want to read a story written by one of our court chaplains, Karin Karlberg. In tonight's story, we get to follow three wise men who, after seeing a new star, the king's star, now go to Jerusalem, to search for him."

A bad quality photo which shows us the Crown Princess Family's Christmas Card, someone has taken a screenshot from the video The Romanian Royal Family published. We see a glimpse of Carl Philip's family's card too.

Whether Madeleine and family will arrive to Sweden for Christmas remains to be seen. Margareta Thorgren said to Svensk Damtidning that there are plans for it, but that right now it is not something that is nailed down and ready.
- The children are bigger now and just like all school children, they have school in December and mid-December. So if they come to Sweden, it is in connection with the Christmas holiday.

Babben Larsson was chosen as SVT's Julvärd 2022 (A julvärd refers to the person presenting the Christmas Eve programs on SVT each year).
Larsson was a guest on SVT's Morning Studio this morning, where she talked about the new assignment, and at the same time revealed a little secret.
- We have a nice reading from Crown Princess Victoria, she says cryptically and concludes with:
- Maybe we'll see it, we haven't decided yet.

Victoria and Daniel are listed at court's calendar to receive the traditional Christmas trees from the Swedish Forestry Students' Union on 16th December at the Royal Palace. It's a school day, but hopefully we will see Estelle and Oscar too.

Beautiful.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia attended yesterday Lilla Akademien's Lucia concert at Lilla Akademien. Queen Silvia is the patron of Lilla Akademien.

Princess Birgitta told about her Christmas to Svensk Damtidning. Birgitta stays in Mallorca and her two sons and their families arrive to celebrate with her. It will be great to meet the children and grandchildren.
What does a royal Christmas look like in Mallorca? According to Birgitta, the Christmas celebration looks the same as for just about anyone. But a Swedish Christmas is not sought after.
- It depends on the weather. At the moment we have bad weather so I hope that changes. Then we'll play golf! Go out and like tat, yes, things that all people do. You eat well and drink well, have dressed the tree and give out Christmas presents. Yes, as it is done everywhere, it is the same with us.
Birgitta wishes for herself peace and joy. She hopes that the world will correct itself a little so that it will be calmer for all parts. That is the only thing she wishes for at the moment.

According to an interview given by the Queen to Bild, Princess Madeleine and her family arrived in Sweden today, Sunday, to spend Christmas with her parents. Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and their families will celebrate her birthday on the 23d, but will then leave to spend Christmas Eve with their respective parents-in-law.

The Crown Princess Family's traditional Christmas greeting
Before Christmas, the Crown Princess, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar visited the Royal Opera in Stockholm to see Cinderella. Before the curtain went up, they got to meet Luiza Lopez and Jonatan Davidsson from the Royal Ballet and costume director Michael Glas.
In 2023 The Royal Opera celebrates 250 years. The opera was founded in 1773 by Gustaf III and is the national stage for opera and ballet

Photos at the article at court's website:
Kronprinsessfamiljen besökte Kungliga Operan inför jul _ Kungahuset

»We are very happy that the Crown Princess and her family chose to come to us at the Royal Swedish Opera and draw attention to the cultural sector and our employees. It fits extra well now for our 250th anniversary, which we will celebrate throughout 2023«, says Fredrik Lindgren, CEO of the Royal Swedish Opera.

The King and Queen have been seen doing some Christmas shopping:
At lunchtime on Monday, the King and Queen Silvia appeared in Sickla outside Stockholm.
Followed by their bodyguards, they strolled around a number of shops. What they bought is unclear, but according to a reader, they looked at, among other things, shoes, glasses and hunting accessories.
- They looked a lot at sunglasses, he says.
