Journalist Johanna Bäckström Lerneby published last May the book "Familjen", which is about a family's control over the residential area Angered in Gothenburg. It has been nominated for the August Prize and given the author the Grand Journalist Prize.

Svensk Damtidning quotes magazine Vi läser (We read) and tells, that Queen Silvia and Victoria liked the book so much that they invited Johanna Bäckström Lerneby to the Royal Palace to discuss about the book with them.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia and the crown princess family were skiing at Drottningholm on Sunday and posed to some photographers.

With the pictures, the royal family sends a happy greeting, but they also have a message. For them, this ski trip was an opportunity to meet, but also a way to show that you can have fun together on a sports holiday, even at home and despite the fact that you have to keep that slightly dull but super important corona distance.

Our Swedish royal family loves to ski and now they do not have to go very far to do so.
We can see how the royal couple and the crown princess couple with little prince Oscar and little princess Estelle look like having a wonderful day on the trail. They ride in a row, laughing and making sure to keep a safe distance due to the prevailing pandemic.
“The royal family appreciated being able to meet on cross-country skis in this way - outdoors and from a distance. Both Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar naturally thought it was very fun to spend time on the ski track with the King and Queen", says the court's information officer Johan Tegel in a text message.

Usually the royals ski in the royal ski lodge in Storlien or on the slopes in Switzerland. When the pandemic stopped these ski plans, it became a ski trip at home in the Palace park instead.

The royal family accelerated on the ski track at Drottningholm Palace. Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar went like real professionals.
It was a long time since we saw the whole royal family together. And maybe that's why the court invited the press to immortalize a ski trip in the snow outside Drottningholm Palace.

It's two weeks to the sports holiday and Svensk Damtidning asked from Margareta Thorgen how the royal family spends the holiday this year.
Thorgren said:
- The royal families will not go to the mountains this year. This is of course in view of the serious pandemic situation. The Crown Princess and her family will spend the sports holiday at home. The winter and the snow we have now in the whole country has given great opportunities to practice winter sports where you live, also to the Crown Princess family. They want to show the possibilities, even when you spend your sports holiday at home.
- Prince Carl Philip and princess Sofia will not travel to the mountains either. Their children are so small, so they do not really have a sports holiday in the same way as Princess Estelle.
- The royal couple live right now in Stenhammar. For everyone, it is continued digital business that applies.

Is this break always called 'the sports holiday' in Sweden? It seems a bit of a strange way to refer to this particular school break.

Indeed it is. Alternatively it’s called ”skidlov” which translates ”skiing holiday”. The same in Finland.

It will not be a regular sports holiday for Princess Estelle this year.
In just one week, on February 23, Estelle will be nine years old. The following week, there is a sports holiday for her and the other students at Campus Manilla.
But it will not be a regular sports holiday for Estelle and the rest of the family this year.
Usually, Victoria and Daniel take the children to the Alps or the Swedish mountains, which was the plan this year, to ski and enjoy the holiday in sun and snow. The royal couple also usually go up to Storlien. But this year, everyone stays home.
- The entire royal family has decided to stay at home on sports holiday this year, due to the pandemic, says Margareta Thorgren.
Thorgren says that it is about several things, both to show in action the importance of keeping a distance and, if the accident occurs, not burden the health care up there, which is still already strained, now that the vaccination has begun as well. It is a favorable weather to be able to do sports at home, with snow and ski slopes if you want to, as in Drottningholm Palace park, where the royal family was out skiing last week.

Not sure how the 'accident risk' is being mitigated by skiing nearby instead of at a different locations.

One week of snow and ice did lead to overflowing emergency care units at the hospitals in the Netherlands last weekend.

It's a recommendation from our health authorities to stay put, so not to burden another municipality's health service. Storlien is a very small village and has enough with Covid patients and don't need injured Stockholmers to add to their plight. :-)
