Information officer Johan Tegel from the court to Expressen:
"The royal family celebrates Christmas in Stockholm. All family members will spend time together during the Christmas days. The different days on which these Christmas celebrations take place can, however, be counted as private and it is nothing that we provide any information about."
On Friday, the Queen turns 79, and then the whole family will be together.
- Then Christmas begins for me. The king and I have a close relationship with our children, the queen said at Bild's interview.

Svensk Damtidning, Chris was today doing some Christmas shopping.
Chris was seen today, on Thursday, strolling along Strandvägen and on to the jewelry store Gaudy. He then left the store with a black bag in his hand.
After the visit to Gaudy, he wandered around the Christmas rush. He then continued up towards Norrmalmstorg, probably in search of more Christmas presents to put under the tree at Drottningholm.

On Christmas Eve, the Crown Princess, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar visited staff at Greater Stockholm Local Transit Company's (SL) depot in Ulvsunda outside Stockholm to wish them a Merry Christmas.
Many people around Sweden work during Christmas, including in public transport.
During the visit to the Ulvsudadepot, the Crown Princess Family expressed wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to the SL staff working during Christmas and the coming weekends.

Here it goes! Lucky that it says practice run on the sign.
Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar occupied the driver's compartment on the cross track when they visited Stockholm's local traffic depot in Ulvsunda on Christmas Eve.
The Crown Princess Family took the opportunity to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to the SL staff working over Christmas and the coming weekends.

The Crown Princess family met the staff, and got to see around the traffic control centre. They were also inside the tram depot and looked at the trams.
- Then we entered the carriage hall where we visited a tram that was waiting for us there. They all had to go into the driver's cab, says Petrus Sarmento, operations manager at SL.
Estelle and Oscar also handed out gifts to the staff who worked on Christmas Eve.
- There were some goodies. A little chocolate and other things that might be nice to have on Christmas Eve, says Petrus Sarmento.

The King's traditional Christmas speech to all Swedes at home and abroad at SVT Play and court Youtube channel:
SVT Play

The king gave his first Christmas speech in 1972, then as crown prince. This year's speech, which was thus the 50th in a row, was recorded in Princess Sibylla's apartment at the Royal Palace. The apartment is the King and Queen's representative floor at the Royal Palace.
In the Christmas speech, the King spoke, among other things, about the war in Ukraine and the coming jubilee year for Sweden.
H.M. Konungens jultal 2022 _ Kungahuset

King Carl Gustaf's this year's Christmas speech, the focus was at the war in Ukraine.
The king talks about his first trip to Ukraine, which took place during the time when the country was still part of the Soviet Union.
- From Stockholm Palace to Ukraine is only a hundred miles with straight line distance. Christmas is also celebrated there. For many who live there, it is dark, cold and difficult. Parts of society's infrastructure are knocked out. People have been killed, injured and subjected to terrible suffering.
In 2008, the royal couple traveled to Ukraine. They then visited Gammalsvenskby (Old Swedish village) in the southern part of the country.
- The Russian aggression against Ukraine has hit the village hard. The road I inaugurated at the state visit has been destroyed. Electricity, water and fuel are in short supply. It feels heavy to think about this. Therefore, today I want to send a special greeting to the residents of Gammalsvenskby: my thoughts and those of my family are with you – and with all your compatriots.

SVT showed yesterday evening Victoria's Christmas greeting from the Royal Chapel, where she read also the Christmas Gospel. This was a replay from 2021.

Here the rhetorician rates the King's annual Christmas speech: "Very personal"
Rhetorician Heléne Hedqvist has taken a closer look at the King's traditional Christmas speech, which is addressed to Swedes at home and abroad and is a summation of the past year and a look ahead to the next year. This year's speech had a strong political message from a human rights perspective, so it's the first time I remember him being so politically clear, says Hedqvist. The introduction is very startling because the King directly addresses Ukraine.

Madeleine and her family usually go home to Florida at the beginning of January. That will also be the case this year. The royal family celebrates the New Year privately, and Madeleine and her family will then remain in Sweden.
- Princess Madeleine and her family are going back to Florida the week after New Year, says Margareta Thorgren to Svensk Damtidning.

The King and Queen's Christmas Card from 1978, sent to Urho Kekkonen, the President of Finland.
The original card can be seen in the Heinola City Museum's Christmas exhibition "And everyone has good will - Kekkonen's Christmas cards and Christmas celebration in an independent Finland".
