Old Articles about the Family

I am finding some old articles about the Swedish Royal family and I found that there was no place to post them. I am not sure if these have been posted anyplace else but I thought maybe somebody would like to read them.

Article about the King from Food & Wine
Article about the King receiving presents

Here is one about the garden at Solliden. I think I have seen this one here in the archives before but I thought I would post it here also.

Thank you for posting Sarahbellar. Really loved the article on food. Finally one positive piece to read about the king. Wish the third one was in English. Keep uploading more, much older aticles if possible..

Silvia shows Windsors the right way to do it: Swedish queen proves royalty needn't be a pantomime - World - News - The Independent

Here is an article from 2 January 1994 taking about why Silvia is good for Sweden. It also talks about her 50th birthday celebrations

And here is one summarizing her 65th Birthday Interview- I could not find it anywhere else in the forums so I decided to post it here... Feel free to tell me if it is somewhere else.

I just found a new to me article from the 80s that has become my favorite find. http://www.nytimes.com/1981/11/23/st...ublic-eye.html

Very touching to read.

Very beautiful gardens!
It was interesting to learn that the King and Queen devote many moments during the winter months to plan for the new addition in the garden.

I'm afraid I don't really remember but she's not Jane Austen that's for sure.
As far as I remember it was honest and open and gave the impression that she has a realistic view of her station and the royal family's role in modern Sweden. The book was in swedish.
