Andrea Brodin and Cedric Notz celebrated in Sardinia their eight years as a couple
"Eight years and counting", Andrea wrote to this photo (which I think is old one) and Cedric commented "love you more every year!"

Peter Forsberg and Nicole Nordin were at the weekend at their friends' wedding in Tuscany.
https://gramho.com/media/2615699387231747724

Will we see Foppa at Victoriagolfen tomorrow?

Daniel and Victoria's friend Anna Z Ek:
After 18 years as a press photographer, Anna Z Ek felt she needed to move on. The course for web editor at Poppius became the springboard.
- I probably would not have even come to an interview for my current job without that education, she says.
For just over a year and a half now, Anna Z Ek has been the web editor and responsible for social media at Stockholm City Mission. A job she really enjoys.
- I do a lot of content and still get to take photos, write, film and meet people. I am very happy that I went to the education and ended up here, she says.

Many of royal family's friends among the richest Swedes

1. Stefan Persson (friend of the king and queen)
Wealth: SEK 223 billion.
Ranking on Bloomberg's top list of world billionaires: 79.
For several years now, the richest Swede has been Stefan Persson. His father Erling Persson founded Hennes & Mauritz in 1947, and Stefan Persson took over the position as CEO in 1982. In 1997 his son Karl-Johan Persson took over the baton. Stefan Persson was the Chairman of the Board of H&M from 1998, but also left that position in May 2020, and Karl-Johan Persson became the Chairman of the Board.
For a long time now, Persson has bought a large number of shares in the clothing giant, and together with his family he will soon own the majority of the company - 49.7 %. It has been speculated whether Persson wants to buy out the company from the stock exchange completely - and with this pace, the family would own 90 % of H&M in five years.
** Stefan Persson is a board member of Mentor Sweden, founding member of Mentor International and member of the Board of Trustees of Mentor International. Karl-Johan Persson and his wife Leonie are Victoria and Daniel's friends and Victoria is godmother of their child, according to some information their son Ian and some information say that Victoria is the godmother of their daughter Philippa. **

2. Gustaf Douglas (friend of the king and queen)
Wealth: SEK 207 billion.
Ranking on Bloomberg's top list of world billionaires: 96.
Financier Gustaf Douglas has recently climbed big on the top list of the world's richest. This is largely due to the fact that the investment company Latour, which Douglas acquired in 1985, has increased enormously in market value recently - 200 percent since the summer of 2018.
Together with his family, he owns three quarters of Latour, which in turn owns a large part of the lock manufacturer Assa Abloy and the security company Securitas. His two sons Carl and Eric also sit on the board of Latour.
** The Thinking Hand – HM The King's Scholarship Competition for Young Draftsmen
A scholarship fund was established on The King's birthday in 2016 by Elisabeth and Gustaf Douglas to support young professionals who work with draftsmanship. **

3. Melker Schörling (friend of the king and queen)
Wealth: SEK 142 billion.
Ranking on Bloomberg's top list of world billionaires: 163.
Between 1987 and 1992, Melker Schörling was CEO of the security company Securitas and carried out major expansions. After that, he became CEO of Skanska, and since he left there in 1997, he has been engaged in board assignments and full-time investments.
His owner company Melker Schörling AB, which he founded in 1999, currently has holdings in, among others, the measurement technology company Hexagon, the lock manufacturer Assa Abloy and Securitas. Due to failing health, Schörling left all positions in the company in 2017.
** Melker Schörling's daughter Sofia Schörling Högberg and her husband are Victoria and Daniel's friends, and the other daughter Märta Schörling Andréen is Madeleine's friend. **

4. Antonia Ax:son Johnson (friend of the king and queen)
Wealth: SEK 115 billion.
Ranking on the world list of billionaires: 213.
Antonia Ax:son Johnson became chairman of the board of the Axel Johnson Group in 1982, which owns Åhléns, Kicks, Dustin and Axfood, among others.
In 2015, she handed over responsibility to her daughter Caroline Berg. She retains a number of other board assignments - she is, among other things, chairman of the board of Axel Johnson Holding and of Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson's Foundation. She is also a member of Axfast and Axel Johnson Inc in the United States.
** Axel Johnson Group is a founding partner of The World Childhood Foundation. **

5. Carl Bennet (Daniel's friend)
Wealth: SEK 108 billion.
Ranking on the world list of billionaires: 230.
Carl Bennet founded the investment and venture capital company Carl Bennet AB in 1989, where he is still chairman of the board. They are the main owners of Getinge, Arjo, Lifco and Elanders, which together have a market capitalization of just over SEK 240 billion.
In addition to his role in the investment company, Carl Bennet is also chairman of Elanders and Lifco, vice chairman of Getinge and Arjo, and board member of Holmen and the investment company LE Lundbergsföretagen.
** Carl Bennet AB supports Prince Daniel's Fellowship and its entrepreneurial programme, Carl Bennet is a member of the steering group of Prince Daniel's Fellowship. Carl Bennet AB is also a founding partner of Generation Pep and a business partner of Global Child Forum. **

6. Fredrik Lundberg (friend of the king and queen)
Wealth: SEK 83 billion.
Ranking on the world list of billionaires: 344.
In 1944, what became Lundbergföretagen was founded as a construction company by Lars Lundberg, but his son Fredrik took over as early as 1981. Today, Lundbergföretagen are major owners in, among others, Industrivärden, Holmen, Indutrade and Lundbergs Fastigheter. In total, their holdings are worth SEK 124 billion.
He holds positions in several of the owned companies, and is, among other things, chairman of the board of Industrivärden. Through his ownership, he has played a key role in several important decisions - for example, selling Volvo to Chinese Geely.
** Fredrik Lundberg's daughter Louise Lindh and her husband are Victoria and Daniel's friends, and the other daughter Katarina Martinson and her husband are Madeleine's friends. **

9. Bertil Hult (friend of the king and queen)
Wealth: SEK 67 billion.
Ranking on the world list of billionaires: 434.
In 1965, Bertil Hult dropped out of his studies in Lund to start a company that would arrange language trips to England.

They have around 1,000 offices and more than 50,000 employees worldwide.
Hult has dyslexia, which affected his schooling, and he therefore donates money to a foundation that works to help children with reading.
He was the CEO of EF until 2002 and chairman of the board until 2008, when he retired. Today, his son Philip is chairman.
** Bertil Hult is a board member of Mentor Sweden, founding member of Mentor International and member of the Board of Trustees of Mentor International. **

Svensk Damtidning and Expressen:

King Carl Gustaf's close friend, businessman Timothy Génetay, always called Tim, died suddenly on Tuesday morning and the king is said to be completely devastated.
The king and Tim Génetay have been friends since the age of 20, when they studied together at Uppsala University.
Son Joakim, a childhood friend of Victoria, writes poignantly about the tragedy that has now befallen the family at his social media.
Tim Génetay is most closely mourned by his wife Kerstin Magnusson Génetay and his four children Joakim, Jonathan, Josephine and Jonas.
Josephine Zapata Génetay is one of Victoria's closest friends, and queen Silvia's goddaughter. Tim Génetay's first wife Agneta Génetay was one of queen Silvia's best friends, she died of cancer in 1985.

Expressen writes about the King and Queen's close friends Hans Eric and Eva Benita Brodin selling their magnificent villa Loviseberg in Solna. The starting price is set at SEK 59 million. According to star broker Michael Preber at Skeppsholmen Sotheby's, the villa is completely unique in its kind.

Madeleine's friend Charlotte Kreuger Cederlund is married to Christoffer Cederlund, one of Carl Philip's best friends. Charlotte is queen Silvia's goddaughter.
Charlotte founded last year CKC Art, where she works as Art Advisor.
I work as an art consultant for private individuals as well as companies and institutions.
After working for many years at Stockholms Auktionsverk, I decided, in the spring of 2020, to start my own company. This is to help my customers and get closer to everything beautiful in art. Now I can really focus on all the fun that art provides.
