Johan T Lindwall, the editor-in-chief of Svensk Damtidning, writes at his column about "a wonderful royal super year" ahead of us. In just a few weeks, beloved Estelle turns ten years old and it will of course be noticed in every way. And there will be Madeleine's 40th birthday and Victoria's 45th birthday!
Lindwall can reveal that "his little spies at the palace" tell that a big party is planned when Madeleine turns 40. If the continued pandemic does not put a stop to it, Madeleine and her family have planned to have a big party in the two days at Drottningholm Palace on Friday 10 June and the day after. A family dinner and a big friends party are planned.
And the birthday Lindwall is convinced all long for most in 2022 is without a doubt Victoria's 45th birthday. Lindwall is going to Öland, we'll meet there?

The Royal Court presupposes that those who participate in gatherings with the Royal Family are fully vaccinated
According to the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines from 30 September 2021, those who are not fully vaccinated against covid-19 should pay special attention to people in the risk group and people who are 70 years and older. Those who are not fully vaccinated should take precautions to avoid becoming infected themselves and to avoid the spread of covid-19.
In connection with official gatherings and other work events in which the Royal Family participates, the Royal Court presupposes that those who participate are fully vaccinated.

I am confused about the intention behind the announcement. To deflect criticism for permitting people who are unvaccinated to participate in royal gatherings? Or to remind people who have not been vaccinated that they should not attend royal gatherings, in order to protect the other participants?

That's just my personal impression, but I think this might be a gentle reminder for people, who are unvaccinated, to please stay away from royal events. The King and Queen are both over 70 and therefore at particular risk. I'm sure they don't fancy catching the disease again in the future and this might be the court taking precautions.

I was also confused about the intention behind this message. Maybe someone from Sweden can enlighten us about what kind of criticism or other response there was in Swedish media/society that might have led to this announcement.

However, vaccinated people might also carry the virus and spread it to others. While the chances are smaller, they are still very real (especially with Omicron).

Certainly, it's not 100%. Nothing is really, unless the King and Queen continue to isolate at home, which they probably don't want to do...

Alternatively, they could ask for a negative test, as is common for many events in certain European countries, but I don't think that's done in Sweden, so it might be difficult for them to ask for that. Sweden is very laissez-faire about the virus, so I think in general the court has trouble asking for anything, which is why they're asking for vaccination gently. As opposed to, again, events in other European countries, the court doesn't even seem to feel comfortable actually checking people's vaccination status.

No criticism in the media about royal gatherings especially, but the government today announced a tightening of restrictions from Wednesday. The Court's communique is completely in line with the new restrictions and I see it as a reminder to people to adhere to said restrictions.

A little over ten days after they were infected, the king and queen Silvia are in principle completely restored, but they are not completely healthy.
Margareta Thorgren said to Expressen that the king is completely free of symptoms and the queen still has a small cold.
At the same time, the Crown Princess and Prince Daniel are well, but remain isolated at home. Thorgren said that Daniel and Victoria are still in quarantine. Their family is otherwise feeling fine.

Margareta Thorgren told yesterday evening to Svensk Damtidning about how the king, queen, Victoria and Daniel are feeling now.
She said that she had had meetings with all four of them yesterday and they are completely recovered from their covid infection. The King and Daniel have had only mild symptoms, while Victoria and the Queen have had cold symptoms. So the business rolls on and all four are back at work after their quarantine. The Royal Family follows the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations, and this means that they work digitally as far as possible. But exceptions occur, due to the king's office.

The Royal House in close communion with sport
The Royal House and sport have a lot in common at the moment. It was announced recently that king Carl Gustaf will hand out medals to six athletes: Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Caroline Seger, Bengtsson, Peter Forsberg, Tove Alexandersson and Maja Reichard. The King has also wished luck to the Swedish Olympic team and congratulated them on their success.
Prince Carl Philip and Prince Daniel are also involved in different ways.
Carl Philip will give a speech at Vasaloppet's 100 anniversary jubileum, he has skiied in Vasaloppet many times.
Karolinska Institutet KI appoints Daniel as a honorary doctor: "HRH Prince Daniel has a strong and long-standing commitment to public health. Over the years, he has made a large number of efforts to increase awareness of the need to promote a healthier lifestyle among children and young people, reduce health gaps and support medical research and education". Daniel and Victoria are initiators of Generation Pep, its goal is to give all children and young people better opportunities for an more active and healthier life, regardless of background and conditions. Generation Pep has in five years become a strong, credible and unifying force in public health work and Daniel is driven and extremely committed to the work. Extensive health-promoting work is conducted with KI as knowledge partner.

Svensk Damtidning contacted Margareta Thorgren to find out how the King and the rest of the royal family are handling the crisis of Ukraine.
- The royal family is following developments in Ukraine. It is a terribly dark morning and the Head of State is and will be directly informed by the government, says Margareta Thorgren.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, princess Christina and Tord Magnuson are this evening at Tomas Ledin's concert at Avicii Arena. Tomas Ledin has his 70th birthday today and he celebrates also 50 years as an artist.

Tomas Ledin has filled Avicii Arena for a 70th anniversary. In addition to his birthday, he pays tribute to the music he has shared with the people for 50 years as an artist. During the evening, he was surprised by, among others, Jill Johnson, Björn Skifs, Lena Philipsson, Björn Ulvaeus and comedian Hampus Nessvold. The royal couple also enjoyed the concert.

Margareta Thorgren said yesterday to Svensk Damtidning that the current uneasy situation in Europe may also affect the royal family's schedule:
"Based on the world situation and developments in Ukraine, future program items, which the royal family is planning, may need to change".
She could not say which specific program items are affected by the situation.

Margareta Thorgren to Hänt about how the royal family will celebrate their Easter.
- Easter is celebrated privately in Sweden.
But whether it includes a trip to the mountains or something else is not clear.
Does Princess Madeleine and her family also celebrate Easter in Sweden?
- No, she and her family are in the USA, Margareta Thorgren concludes to Hänt.

Svensk Damtidning writes about the royal family's Easter.
As we saw from the photo the court published at its Facebook, king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia are at the King's cottage in Storlien. Victoria, Daniel and the children are in Solliden. And from the photo Carl Philip and Sofia published at their Instagram, Svensk Damtidning thinks they were skiing with their children at Kläppen or Sälen which are not far from Älvdalen.

Judging from what's written in the Marshal of the Realm's preface we're in for a year of many celebrations in 2023 in honour of the King's Golden jubilee and the 500th anniversary of the election of Gustav I signifying the founding of the new and independent Sweden.

Queen Silvia will be 80 in December next year as well. And prince Daniel 50, on the same day as the Golden jubilee.
