Like last year, I tried to calculate how many days the Royal Family members worked on publicly announced/shared events during 2018. I also looked at their official international trips abroad (19 different countries visited this year). I am not sure if anyone is interested but I thought I would share here just incase it peaks anyone's interest.

LadyFinn- I went through all the Social Media Accounts I could find to try and get all of Daniel's events because I agree with you that it is shame the court doesn't share more about his work with Prins Daniel Fellowship and GenPep.

Thank you for your tally. Interesting to know that you also do a tally for the Danish Royals.

That is exactly what I attempted to highlight in my post, we only see a portion of the work they do. And these numbers are much more impressive when you view them thinking about that, the amount of work they publish is only half the work that they really do. (Also gives me a bigger appreciation for the press office/personal secretaries- it is amazing that any of them sleep!)

Calculating the days the royals work doesn't tell everything about how much the royals work. King Carl Gustaf has sometimes six, maybe even seven work events in a day, making long days. When he gives audiences to four ambassadors, each audience lasts about 20 minutes with a break between them. When someone else can have a meeting at the Royal Palace that lasts 30 minutes. But they both worked one day.
And if you compare Daniel and Carl Philip: if you look at the court calendar (which isn't good at all), Daniel has this year had 17 work days, in which he has had more than one work event, Carl Philip has 5 days. The difference in their work load is much bigger than what you get if you calculate only work days. Besides, Daniel has had 6 visits with Prince Daniel's Fellowship entrepreneurial programme. They visit two schools/universities and the days last 6-7 hours + travelling.
And the court doesn't make the calculation easy, because at the calendar they list for instance to the state visits only the king and queen attending, although then at the articles they may mention, that the others attended too.

Seems strange when Margareta Thorgren said that Madeleine and family would spend some weeks in Stockholm. They only arrived on 17th December.
The saga continues. They cannot get their story straight...

Oh I completely agree- it doesn't tell the whole story, which is something I wrote multiple times in the post. However, there is not anyone following every member around with a stopwatch to track how long each event takes so the next best thing that I have found to do is to calculate the days.

The Court Calendar does not make it easy, which is why I used the calendar, court articles, photos, social media, and press releases from various organizations to calculate the days. This was not done to say "___ worked only ___ much" or "___ works more than ___". Rather it was done because I was curious about the trends from year to year (which there are some, each member has an average number of days they work each month, normally they only vary 1-2 days from that average), and since I did the work, I thought others might be interested.

I thought Victoria, Daniel, and the kids were going skiing in Norway?

And I did expect Madeleine, Chris, and the kids to spend more than two weeks in Sweden.

Sometimes I feel that Margareta Thorgren is terrible at her job I wonder if it's because I only read the Google translation of what she says. She never quite knows what's going on and why.

The article about spending New Year in Miami was published before Stoppa pressarna published the news about the crown princess family spending New Year in Trysil.

The royal court published at its Facebook this evening a video of photos

There are posts about the program here:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post2184238

On previous years we have been discussing about the program at the thread "Swedish Royal Videos & Sound Clips (+ coming TV appearances)", but that thread has been closed for some weeks now.

But Norway's "The Year with the Royal Family" program has its own segment. I had not seen it yet, and I created this thread because I did not know where to put the link.

From Expressen

Therefore, Chris O'Neill is not included in SVT's royal program
"The year with the royal family" has become a tradition in SVT. Every year since 1977, the television program with highlights from the royal year is shown. In exclusive interviews, the royal family members tell about the past year and give a unique insight into their lives.
So even this year. The King and Silvia, as well as Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine with their respective families. Almost.
Madeleine's husband Chris O'Neill is in principle not visible in this year's program.
- Mr Christopher O'Neill is a private person. There has been no interview planned with Christopher O'Neill in SVT's "The Year with the Royal Family" 2018, says Johan Tegel, information officer at the court.
Only when pictures of Princess Adrienne's baptism are shown Chris O'Neill is seen.
But there the pictures of Chris O'Neill end in the program. Instead, viewers get to follow Madeleine and Leonore to Gröna lund and Carl Philip, Sofia and Alexander to Nynäs nature reserve. In addition, the Crown Princess family is seen in several different constellations in different places.
The director of the press department, Margareta Thorgren, means that the lack of Chris O'Neill depends, among other things, on the princess family's move to Florida.
- The court always hopes that SVT will show the king and his family's official mission. This year, Chris hasn't participated in any major separate official programs. The Princess family has also moved to the US during the autumn and announced in the summer that they don't participate in any official programs for some time, says Thorgren.
Otherwise, Thorgren refers to SVT.
Sara Bull, producer for "The year with the royal family" says it wasn't really an opportunity to film Chris O'Neill more.
- It hasn't really been an opportunity this year. It has become a little different over the years, the program looks different every year. It is a fairly large family nowadays, and this year it has not become an opportunity to film Chris O'Neill. But we'll see, maybe next year.
Sara Bull has produced the program eight times and says that the work with the program has changed as the royal family has become larger.
- It will be tougher to choose and leave out of course, but it will also be more fun. It will be a bigger challenge simply because there is so much you want to fit in with the program. The members of the royal family have different focus areas and I think it makes it a richer program, more varied and exciting for the viewers.
Därför är Chis O'Neill inte med i Året med Kungafamiljen

A new photo agency focusing on royals - Swedish Press Agency - was launched on 1st January. Photographer Pelle T Nilsson, who takes great photos, is one of the photographers at the Agency.

Nice to see them all in Florida together, I presume they were visiting Madeleine and her family?
