What languages does the royal family speak?
In addition to Swedish, Queen Silvia can also speak English, German, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
Both Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine speak English, German and French.
But what about the King?
- The King prefers to speak English, but understands both German and French well, says Margareta Thorgren to Hänt.

The king has seemed not entirely comfortable speaking English, from what I've seen (Princess Christina has spoken it much more fluidly). I wonder if perhaps his dyslexia somehow affected him there in a way it didn't his daughters.

I should think that they, like all Swedes their age, speak English rather well. It's taught from the age of 8.

At the age of fourteen, 7th grade, you get to chose a second foreign language, French, German or Spanish, don't know which they chose though.

Then at high school you can chose a third language. (Or even a fourth if you chose Latin, like I did :-))


This is normal Swedish schooling and there's no reason to assume any of them deviated from that.
