King Carl Gustaf and Carl Philip are honorary members of Sällskapet Club

Since 31 March 1870, Sällskapet Club has had its premises in the property Arsenalsgatan 7, which was built for the purpose and which became completely owned by Sällskapet on 31 March 1877. The property was designed by architect Johan Fredrik Åbom. (..)

Three Andiata outfits on one state visit: The court in ​​Sweden is a regular customer of a Finnish company
Jenni Haukio, Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Sofia represented the Finnish clothing brand during the state visit. Andiata's founder and chief designer Tarja Rantanen has designed all three outfits.
- This is absolutely amazing, we are proud and happy about this. The event was valuable, significant and historic in the Nordic countries and around the world. It's great that Andiata can be involved, says Nita Salo, responsible for sales and marketing at Andiata.
Victoria and Sofia have been seen in Andiata's outfits several times before. Nita Salo thinks that they appreciate the fit and feminine but restrained models.
The princesses regularly acquire Andiata outfits. Salo tells that the acquisition is relatively normal: The court receives the Andiata look Book, a portfolio presenting the collection, on the basis of which clothes can be ordered.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia and crown princess Victoria attended today a confirmation at Medevi Brunn in Motala. Several of the confirmands were children of close friends of the royal family, one of them was Victoria's goddaughter Diana Engsäll, Andrea Brodin's daughter.
The confirmation priest, Hans Rhodin, was also the confirmation priest in 1992, 1994 and 1997 when Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine were confirmed. Hans Rhodin has had a confirmation camp in Medevi every summer for over 30 years.

Expressen has talked with Margareta Thorgren about Oscar and Alexander both starting their preschool year on 18th August.
Oscar started with Estelle at Campus Manilla on Djurgården. Alexander started instead at Djurgårdsskolan, which is just over 2 km away, also on Djurgården.
- As always with children, it is the parents' choice, says Margareta Thorgren about why the princes do not go to the same school.
It doesn't have to do with two princes not being able to go to the same school or class at the same time?
- No absolutely not. There are many good schools to choose from and in this case the prince couple have chosen Djurgårdsskolan for Alexander and the crown princess couple have chosen that Oscar goes to the same school as his sister.
Victoria, Daniel, Carl Philip and Sofia have been with their children during their children's first day. How the first day of school has been for the princes, Thorgren has not received information about yet but she says that as always, it's exciting and fun to start preschool class.
Madeleine's children go to local school in Florida. But the court doesn't tell which school they attend.
- We have now gone out with the schools in Sweden because we understand that there is an interest when the children start their schools. But Princess Madeleine lives abroad and we do not disclose which schools they attend.

Aftonbladet writes also about the children's school start and tells also that Gabriel and Julian go to Skogshyddan's Montessori preschool (nursing school).

Hänt Magazine:
When the children return after their summer holidays for the start of the semester, it can always mean a lot of illnesses and colds.
But what does the royal family actually do if illness occurs among one of the children? The court's information officer Ulrika Näsholm answers the question in a message to Hänt. And it turns out to be a little different for the royals.
"When the royal children are sick, they stay home from school and preschool. As members of the Royal Family do not raise any professional income, they do not seek compensation for the days they are at home with sick children."

Svensk Damtidning:
News Agency Siren writes about the government's decision that Carl Philip will be temporary regent from 29 October to 7 November. The King and Queen Silvia are then abroad on a private holiday in Brazil.
The decision means that Victoria will at the same time be outside Sweden's borders, and that she will then be so far away that she cannot act as temporary regent. Unconfirmed information claims that the Crown Princess family is also going to Brazil for the autumn holiday. Is this right?
Margareta Thorgren is reticent, but confirms, that it is a holiday trip for the royal couple, which for Queen Silvia is then combined with work:
- The Queen has an official program in Brazil at the beginning of November, together with Childhood.(..)

Queen Silvia and crown princess Victoria attended last Sunday at the Cathedral of Palma the christening of Amalia Sommerlath Sohns, the daughter of queen Silvia's niece and goddaughter Helena Sommerlath Sohns and her husband Jan. The christening was held by Holmfried Braun, the pastor of the German-speaking Protestant parish in Mallorca. The ceremony took place in the rooms next to the main altar and was attended by about 30 guests.
After the christening, the company, including the Queen and Victoria, went to eat at the Campino restaurant on the Club Golf de Andratx in Camp de Mar. The evening before, the German and Swedish relatives had dinner together at the Restaurant Mar y Mar in Peguera in Peguera.

According to the swedish press king Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, Victoria, Daniel, Estelle and Oscar are on a holiday in Brazil.
Queen Silvia and Madeleine have work events with World Childhood Brazil on 8-10 November next week.

Expressen writes that when Madeleine arrives in Brazil, parts of the family have already gone home, including Victoria.
- She is at home then, the autumn holidays are over, says Margareta Thorgren.
But Thorgren doesn't want to say if the king is still in Brazil when Madeleine arrives, she says that they don't comment on the king's private part in this.
After the mission in Brazil is over, the Queen and Madeleine go home.
- After that, they return to their regular jobs, in Sweden and in the USA, says Thorgren.

Holocaust survivor, author and psychologist Hédi Fried has passed away at the age of 98 years.
Hédi Fried, or Hédi Szmuk as she was then called, was born in Sighet in Romania in 1924.
She was only nine years old when the Nazis took power in Germany in 1933. On May 15, 1944, she and her family were deported to Auschwitz in Poland, the largest of the Nazi extermination camps.
Hédi Fried survived the time in Auschwitz and then Bergen-Belsen. Both her parents were killed in the camps.
When the gates to freedom were opened in 1945, she was 21 years old and was together with her sister Livia Fränkel in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany.
In July of the same year, she arrived in Sweden. In Sweden, she married, had three children and trained as a psychologist.
In various ways, Hédi Fried has spent her adult life telling stories about the Holocaust and the rise and deeds of Nazism. Something she has been awarded several prizes for.
In 2019, she received the Seraphim medal, Sweden's oldest merit medal.
In 2015, she was awarded, together with Emerich Roth, also a survivor of the Holocaust, the Raoul Wallenberg Prize.

On the occasion of Hédi Fried's passing, HM the King has made the following statement.
"My family and I have received the news of Hédi Fried's passing away with sadness. Hédi Fried was one of our country's leading public figures. She educated generations of Swedes about the evil of the Holocaust and the inviolability of human dignity.
We appreciated her kindness and wisdom on the occasions when our family had the privilege of meeting her.
We remember Hédi Fried and her work with gratitude and respect."

Queen Silvia was interviewed by Bild when she was in Germany last Saturday.

The queen told the German newspaper how much the grandchildren mean to her.
- I really like spending time with my grandchildren. They are completely different, quick as weasels and say funny but logical things. I just love listening to them!
In addition, the Queen reveals that Estelle, who is now 10 years old, has received her first own mobile phone.
- Sometimes she sends me little messages in different languages, which is always very nice. She also writes quite well in English.
And if Silvia needs help when it comes to social media, it's Estelle who jumps in.
- She is very skilled at it and always helps her grandmother, says the queen to Bild.

Svensk Damtidning's article about where in Sweden you might meet a member of the royal family:

Haga Palace/Haga Park
- Victoria and Daniel often walk in Haga Park with dog Rio, exercise or play with the children. There is also the Haga Ocean Butterfly House - a popular excursion destination where children and adults can watch butterflies, sharks and exotic fish in a tropical rainforest environment.
Ulriksdal Palace
- Victoria has been seen there on outings with Estelle and Oscar. Victoria and Estelle bought flowers and herbs and had a "fika".
Drottningholm Palace
- The king can be seen walking with his dog Brandie, and he and the queen were seen cross-country skiing on Drottningholm together with the crown princess family.
Östermalm and Royal Djurgården in Stockholm
- You can meet Carl Philip and Sofia out on a pram walk or jogging, but you can also run into the king in tracksuits or Madeleine, when she is in Sweden.
- The classic inn Ulla Winbladh was Princess Lilian's absolute favorite restaurant.
- Exclusive interior design store Svenskt Tenn on Strandvägen has been a purveyor to the court since the 1920s.
- On Strandvägen 1 there are two restaurants side by side frequently visited by royalty, Strandvägen 1 and Milles - both are favorites of Madeleine and Chris. They they usually buy food and other necessities at Sabi's Fältörsten.
- Victoria usually eats with her friends at Strandvägen 1, many of her friends live nearby. She has also often had dinner at the super classic restaurant Teatergrillen.
- On Nybrogatan are trendy cafés Crème and Mocco, maybe Sofia will come in for a coffee.
- Victoria and Estelle have also been seen at museums: the Mediterranean Museum, where they seem to be particularly fond of the Bagdad Café restaurant, and Moderna Museet on Skeppsholmen.
- The exclusive fashion stores in Bibliotekstan are also a good tip. There is also the children's clothing company Livly's flagship store, a favorite among the princesses.
- Östermalmshallen, there you basically always bump into a celebrity and you can even meet royalty. When the Haga Princesses are in Sweden, they always have lunch together there, and Bertil and Lilian were regular customers.
- Ejes Choklad on Erik Dahlbergsgatan is a purveyor to the court. Queen Silvia loves jelly raspberries and over the years has ordered lots of them from Ejes, the mixed chocolate pralines are also said to be a royal favourite.
Out of Stockholm
Öland
- the royal family spends a lot of time at Solliden and you can bump into them in Borgholm. If there's a big concert in the castle ruins, the royal family is usually there. When Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine were younger, they often partied at Strand Hotell and nowadays they sometimes have dinner at Hotell Borgholm.
Storlien
- At Easter, the royal family has often been to their cottage in Storlien in Jämtland to go skiing
Ökenäs gård
- Carl-Philip and Sofia also spend a lot of time at their private country estate in Sörmland, Ökenäs gård outside Trosa.
Värmdö
- When Victoria and Daniel's private holiday home on Fågelbrolandet on Värmdö is ready, it will be possible to meet them at the nearby Fågelbro Golf & Country Club.
Ockelbo
- Daniel's hometown Ockelbo is also a haven for the crown princess family.
