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.

Att skriva kungens biografi

I just found this- has anybody ever seen it before???

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.
https://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/s...tt_2236773.svd

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

Very touching to read.

Here is an article about the Kungliga hovleverantorer
https://www.hovlev.se/documents/SDT0...antorer-ag.pdf

The New York Times has a wonderful archive of articles of the family.

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.

DI Weekend republished recently the large interview they made of Victoria in November 2003, when Victoria was 26 old. The interview was made in Washington.
Some questions and answers:
If you would not be the crown princess, what job would you like then?
"The area I have studied this week in Washington, international conflict, is an area I would have willingly worked with. Gladly for an international organization such as the UN. I am also very interested in the environment, culture and nature, but something specific profession in those I never thought about"
Have you ever felt, "Well, now that's enough, I don't want to be crown princess anymore"?
"No, I don't see that as an alternative for me. But I have doubted myself. I had a period in my life when I was feeling really bad and felt I couldn't live up to the tough demands that I put on myself."
Is there anything that would make you consider to abdicate?
"If the Swedish people don't want me to fulfill my task, then I obviously will not do it. That's the only reason."
What do you think are required for us to get a more even distribution of women and men in leadership positions in business?
"The starting point must be that it is a given that women are as capable as men. Then it is a fact that the experience and past jobs are crucial to who will get a job at a management position."
How do you see gender quotas?
"A sensitive question. I don't know if that's what it takes, but personally I would like to get a job because of my skills."
You yourself have had your job through inheritance and not the suitability or competence. Doesn't it feel outmoded?
"I have a position that is very difficult to just jump into. Almost an entire life is needed to take on the role."
What is your argument for us to keep the monarchy?
"The royal family has an important role to play as apolitical symbol of Sweden."
Wouldn't it be great to meet and get to know more people your own age? Say that it takes 20-30 years before taking over the throne - then maybe all of your advisors have died or become senile? (Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg, 53, and Jan Eliasson, 62, in the seats next laugh happily when the question is asked.)
"I surround myself with people I enjoy and who above have all the knowledge and experience needed. When today's 20-year-olds have as much knowledge I can call to them, too. I address the issue to the person who is best placed to take it."
Isn't it boring to talk to old men all the time?
"I get the question often from my friends. But somehow I never felt this way because I have always been able to learn so much by talking to these people."
Everyone I've talked to here in Washington praises you for your commitment and talent. Still, I've read about your problems with dyslexia - is that something you are still suffering?
"Yes. I have mainly problems with plowing through large text material. I have to read the text several times and make my own notes for it to go well. But you learn to deal with it. One just have to accept that it takes time".
You take frantically notes during seminars and presentations. What do you do with all the notes?
"Because of my dyslexia, it is difficult for me to just listen, I have to take my own notes so that it sticks in the memory. I also save the notes to go back to them if I should do a return visit or a visit where similar things should be handled."
Your schedule in Washington has been busy, and from morning to night you are in the center and have all eyes on you. You must be exhausted in the evenings?
"Of course I'm tired, but you get used to it. This week hasn't actually been more busy than any other. And I sleep a lot in the car between meetings."
