Medieakademien published it's annual confidence barometer (förtroendebaromerern) in March. The survey was done by Kantar Sifo with webb-interviews with over 1200 people (16 years or older) on 10-20th February.
According to that the confidence for the Royal House has been/is:
Percentage of very / quite high confidence
2010 - 50 %
2011 - 35
2012 - 35
2013 - 37
2014 - 37
2015 - 40
2016 - 42
2017 - 41

Svensk Damtidning's article today:
Victoria's and Daniel's Revenge - loved by all
Congratulations to the royal family! Confidence in the Royal House is increasing. Can it be about the "Victoria and Daniel effect"?
We Swedes like our royal house - and our royal family. This is shown by Medieakademien's confidence barometer 2020, published earlier this year.
From the survey, made by Kantar Sifo, it can be seen that confidence in the royal house has been steadily increasing since the dip in 2011, when it collapsed to 35%, from 50% the year before. But then it has gone straight up, and now confidence is at a stable 50% again.
Victoria and Daniel effect
Behind these figures stands the royal family, of course, and perhaps especially Crown Princess Victoria and her family. The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel go from clarity to clarity with their warmth, their wisdom and their pondus. They have the ability to really radiate that they work "For Sweden - With the times", to quote the king's motto.
But the success is also helped by the Swedish court, which, like Europe's other royal houses, has a successful media strategy, and which has also invested in strengthening its popularity with the help of social media.

Another article at Svensk Damtidning's latest issue about the confidence barometer
Victoria and Daniel for Sweden with the Times
Swedes like the royal house - the Crown princess couple is more popular than ever
About the king has been written in several unflattering contexts over the years. All experts agreed: the writings would damage the reputation of the monarchy among the people. And the numbers show they were right, during the stormy years when among others the book Den motvillige monarken came. But Victoria and Daniel took a revenge.

But the success is also helped by the Swedish court, which has a successful media strategy, and which has also invested in strengthening its popularity with the help of social media.
At the end of last year King Carl Gustaf announced that he would stir up the Swedish monarchy. He had made a policy decision that essentially concerned who should be entitled to the title "Royal Highness".
It quickly became clear that the decision would have far more far-reaching consequences than that. This was explained by Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia in an interview.
- Directly, our roles may not change very much. But in the long term, as the focus will be on the head of state and the future head of state with family, it will be a little freer for us, Sofia said.
The change also means that Madeleine and Carl Philip's children will no longer be required to represent the royal family in the king's service. The families are thus to some extent distanced from the royal activities in general.
Many have wondered: how would the decision be received by the people? Would this harm the monarchy in people's eyes? Certainly not. The King's decision hasn't done anything to reduce people's confidence in his work for Sweden. Rather, people's confidence for the royal house has increased since 2019. That must be a nice message for Carl Gustaf!

Interestingly, confidence in Royal House is highest in 2020 and 2021 and was lowest in 2011.

I'm not surprised at all. During 2011 there was a massive focus on the private life of the King after the publication of the book "Den motvillige monarken" (the reluctant monarch) in November 2010. The book revealed that he had had an affair with pop artist Camilla Henemark and put the spotlight on the inner circle of his friends. The ensuing media circus included unverified stories, rumours and downright lies and was handled very badly by both the King himself (he has later described an interview he gave at the time as the worst experience of his life) and the Palace press office. Added to this there followed several stories about the Queen's father who was revealed to have been a member of the Nazi party and to have profited from the seizing of Jewish property and also a general barrage of anti-royal reporting which affected the popularity of the Royal family and the support for the monarchy. The last ten years has seen a slow but steady rise in popularity and respect for the Royal family because of the popularity of Crown Princess Victoria, the hard work and focus on humanitarian issues by individual family members, the disgust with which many Swedes have reacted to the press harassing the family and having many of the stories mentioned above disconfirmed.

If I understood it correctly, confidence in the Royal House is higher e.g. than in the political parties, the government, the Parliament, and the Church of Sweden.

Governments are rarely very popular. And I wouldn't be very amazed if Sweish government would be very unpopular considering some certain current things in the country.

Anna Dahlberg, political editor (Head of the Editorial board in Expressen newspaper), yesterday at her chronicle in Expressen:
Congratulations, the King - and long live the monarchy!
The Royal House makes great efforts to protect Swedish interests abroad and functions as a unifying symbol at home. Expressen's editorial board hereby abandons the demand that the monarchy should be abolished.
King Carl XVI Gustaf turns 75 years old. For more than 47 years he has been Sweden's head of state - longer than any previous regent. When he took over the throne after the death of his grandfather on September 15, 1973, he was only 27 years old.
Most of the others had probably wanted to step down and retire after such a long working life. But not the King or for that matter Queen Silvia. They continue to work on behalf of Sweden week in and week out.
The King inaugurates exhibitions, gives speeches, receives visits, visits Swedish soldiers abroad and so on. From my contacts at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, a consistent picture is given: The King, Queen and the Crown Princess couple are toiling hard. The programs during their trips abroad are full from morning to evening. They are decent people, who are in Sweden's service without grumbling.
With their help, doors are opened that would otherwise have remained closed, including for Swedish export companies, but also for civil servants and ministers. They sell, so to speak, both Swedish goods and values. The Royal House strengthens Sweden's brand enormously in the world, my diplomatic contacts attest. "The royal family is one of Sweden's absolute foremost assets alongside the Nobel Prize, the Vasa ship, meatballs, Karolinska Institutet and ESS in Lund", sums up a veteran.
But for this effort, the royal family rarely receives any recognition. (...)
The king has, of course, allowed his children to marry out of love, not duty, and himself nurtured a long-term commitment to the environment. Crown Princess Victoria gave an inaugural speech during the latest Pride festival, and touched many deeply by addressing everyone in Sweden who doesn't dare to stand up for their love openly: "I stand behind you". Her personal involvement in the issue means at least as much as many political initiatives.
The royal family tiptoes cautiously as it should in the public eye, but no one can seriously claim that it is a conservative force that stands in the way of progressive ideals. Rather, the royal family seems to want to contribute to make Sweden a little kinder. Princess Sofia stepped in as a care assistant during the pandemic and Prince Daniel is involved in issues as children's movement and organ donation, for example. (...)
If you seriously want to introduce a republic in Sweden - and prevent Victoria from one day becoming the Queen of Sweden - you must at some point try to strike in the matter and be precise. Should we follow the German model or the Finnish one? What exactly should the alternative to the monarchy look like and what mandate should the Swedish president have?
Expressen's editorial board no longer intends to pretend that we want to abolish the monarchy.
So congratulations, the King, on your 75th birthday! And thank you for that you and the rest of the royal family work so hard for Sweden.
Grattis, kungen – och leve monarkin!

Expressen abandons demands for the abolition of the monarchy
Expressen överger krav på monarkins avskaffande - Sydsvenskan

Expressen's editorial board changes side on the issue of the monarchy
Expressens ledarsida byter sida i frågan om monarkin

Victoria's hard work makes an impression. Now the former critic is making a complete U-turn.
Respected editorial writer Anna Dahlberg reveals in a text in Expressen the newspaper's new official attitude to the royal family, and it is positive. Dahlberg writes that most actors who have traditionally been against the royal family and on paper are for a transition to a republic now in practice "have put all those demands on the shelf". "But it is high time to stop pretending. Sweden's modern form of monarchy has served us well and there is no reason to replace it in the foreseeable future".
She highlights Victoria as a representative of the modern royal house, which during the fifty years since the constitutional change that removed all the king's political power has adapted, survived and become one of the country's most important symbols.
Expressen's reversal in the matter is the first of its kind in a very long time, it remains to be seen if anyone will follow suit.

Johan Hakelius at his column in Fokus, 26th April
Hakelius: The Repulican bullshit is about to burst
On Saturday, Expressen abandoned the coquettish demand for a republic. More "Republicans" should follow.
Is it really possible that all Republicans who claim that the monarchy is "incompatible" with democracy do not know the state of Norway, Denmark, Great Britain, the Netherlands and, for that matter, Sweden?
But they grind on, while the cultural elite - a little ashamed, perhaps - sit in front of "The Crown", or "Atlantic Crossing", while the Americans adopt Harry and Meghan, while the king is interviewed in Värvet and while almost 83 percent of the TV-watching British the audience followed Prince Philips' funeral. Svenska Dagbladet had a slightly vague, but long and serious article about the royal family this weekend.
To be "out of date", kings and queens, princes and princesses play a very prominent and appreciated role in our very contemporary times.

Johan Hakelius is married to Susanna Popova, the author of Victoria and Daniel's wedding book "Vårt bröllop".

The survey conducted by Demoskop on behalf of Aftonbladet within the framework of the Inizio panel, which reflects the Swedish people. The respondents are 16 years and older.
The survey includes 1761 interviews between April 20 and 27, and was conducted as a web survey. The sample is pre-stratified and weighted by age, gender, region and party in the previous election.

46 percent have great confidence in the royal family.
49 percent like Crown Princess Victoria best in the Royal House, while 14 percent like the king best.
31 percent wants the king to abdicate in favor of the Crown Princess.

Patrik Kronqvist asks at his column in Expressen:

Why are the critics of the royal family so lazy?
Not even the Republican Association wants to put its foot down in the question of how a Swedish republic should be designed - even if in 2012 the matter was investigated. Instead, citizens, politicians and parties are urged to discuss this.
This lack of concretion makes the Republican argument appear contradictory. On the one hand, the monarchy is described as "undemocratic", "outdated" and "a remnant of the time when Sweden was a dictatorship". On the other hand, it is hardly possible to find a single republican who ids argue for which system should come instead.

Personally I am not a fan of the "minimalist monarchy" (as a constitutional model, I mean), but I think the King and the Crown Princess were capable of crafting a meaningful role for themselves and the Royal House under the constitutional constraints that apply to them and that explains the continuing support for the monarchy.


I agree with Expressen that Sweden would lose in terms of visibility overseas if the monarchy were replaced by a republic. As a matter of fact, I think that is true for all surviving monarchies in Europe, some more than others.

Let me quote from the committee directive to prolong the inquiry from a government meeting on 26 November, 2020.

"On 7 November 2019, the Government decided on a committee directive for a parliamentary committee with the task of reviewing the public reward system, the general flag days and considering the design of the grant to the court (Directive 2019: 76). The committee has been named the Merits Inquiry. The assignment was to be finalized no later than June 15, 2021.
The investigation period is extended. The assignment must instead be reported no later than 15 September 2021."

When Johan T Lindwall started as the editor-in-chief of Svensk Damtidning five years ago, he made the decision that the magazine makes every year a survey about the royal family with Kantar Sifo. This year Svensk Damtidning has made the largest survey so far.

Johan T Lindwall writes about the first results at his column:
Johan T Lindwall about the horror message to Madeleine: "Now the court must act"
Svensk Damtidning asked the Swedish people's opinions about the royal family and the information about Madeleine is shocking. "My advice is to call in a crisis team", writes Lindwall.
In this Kantar Sifo survey, there is no doubt: Victoria is by far the most popular member of the royal family.
There are questions about everything from the classic question of when Victoria will take over the throne to who do you have the most confidence in in the royal family? Not difficult to guess? No, exactly: Victoria! Yes, Lindwall thought that Victoria would be at the top in confidence, but he had never even dared to imagine the numbers she does it with. As many as 54 % answered Victoria. The king comes closest with 10 %. 44 % advantage for Victoria.
Least trust, Madeleine. She receives 0 % confidence from the people.
In which member of the royal family you have the greatest confidence?
Crown princess Victoria 54 %
King Carl Gustaf 10 %
Prince Daniel 3 %
Queen Silvia 2 %
Prince Carl Philip 2 %
Princess Sofia 1 %
Chris O'Neill 1 %
Princess Madeleine 0 %
Uncertain/do not know 26 %

The results of the whole survey are at Svensk Damtidning's this week's issue.

1,000 people between 18 and 70 participated in the survey conducted by Kantar Sifo.

If I understand the poll correctly it does not mean that the public does not trust princess Madeleine or Queen Silvia. It just means that the trust other members of the family more. Whatever is meant with trust of course.

The poll itself seems rather strange TBH, but I am sure with such a leading question the editor will have gotten the answer he wanted & could use for an article.

Reporter Jenny Alexandersson posted a comment on Facebook about the Svensk Damtidning survey:
"This morning I was interviewed by Svenska Dagbladet about a Sifo survey conducted by Svensk Damtidning. They feel the pulse of the royal family and the Swedish people once a year and it is always an exciting read. Svensk Damtidning's figures show that Princess Madeleine has a 0% rate of trust with the Swedish people. I'm not particularly surprised. Aftonbladet conducted a similar survey in April, where Madeleine had a 1% rate of trust with the people. There are three reasons for the low number.
It is partly about personality and interest in official life.
Visibility in an official context.
The King's decision to exclude Princess Madeleine's and Prince Carl Philips' children from the royal family also has an affect.
The king made the decision to remove some of his grandchildren from the royal house in 2019. He wanted to narrow down the official part of the family and clarify how many and whom would be allowed to represent Sweden and the royal house and get public funding in the future. This meant that Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia and Princess Madeleine had to take a step back from public assignments. Madeleine's visibility in royal contexts decreased drastically. Trust is hard currency for royalty. That's how it is and that's important. Without trust, they lose relevance and without relevance, there is no support from the people. BUT - I do not see it as as alarming as the Svensk Damtidning does. Since Madeleine does not represent as much anymore and is not interested in the spotlight, she is not as dependent on people's trust in her. This is the beginning of a more private life for the princess. Of course, we will see the princess in semi-official contexts in the future. But she lives abroad and also wants to work behind the scenes with her heart issues and with Childhood. It will be exciting to see what happens this year when the pandemic restrictions are removed and the royal family starts working more normally again. I do not think we will see the princess in more official situations than those necessary."

I have three comments on Jenny's post.
1. Sifo is Sweden's largest and most reliable market research company.
2. Jenny Alexandersson works for the newspaper Aftonbladet and is a reliable and knowledgeable reporter. She is, in my opinion, Sweden's foremost royal reporter.
3. I wonder how much we would have been seeing Princess Madeleine in Sweden during the last 1,5 years had not the pandemic happened. I think it has given her a perfect opportunity to take a few steps back and then to never step forward again.

Even if Ms. Alexandersson is the foremost royal reporter in the country, "Svensk Damtidning's figures show that Princess Madeleine has a 0% rate of trust with the Swedish people" is an inaccurate and misleading way to describe a poll which asked "In which member of the royal family you have the greatest confidence?"

As Marengo pointed out, the fact that 0% of Swedes consider Princess Madeleine the most trustworthy member of her immediate family does not imply that 0% of Swedes have any trust in her at all.

I do not know what the statistical margin of error may be, but it is worth noting that apart from the Crown Princess and King, no other royal received more than 3% of the votes.

Indeed. If we would use the -IMO illogical- logic of this royalty reporter only 2% of the Swedes trust Queen Silvia. That would certainly be more newsworthy and shocking than the Madeleine angle. Queen Silvia has been Sweden's queen for 45 years. As first lady of the land she has a busy agenda and is involved in a large amount of charitable projects and good causes. And only 2% seem to 'trust' her?

Although there may be nothing wrong with the poll and the polling agency, the interpertation of the result by royalty reporters who have a newspaper/clicks to sell seems sensationalistic and misleading.

It is the same circus as last year in the Netherlands, "the Dutch have less trust in the King and Queen" (because of the unlucky trip to their villa in Greece).

But what is "trust in the King" or "trust in Queen Silvia" and what means "less trust in the King"? And how to substantiate having more or less "trust" in an a-political and largely ceremonial figure?

It is indeed just tweaking an enquête to get a frame, a narrative, which becomes trendy on Twitter and gets an own life (Uh oh, the monarchy is in serious danger!). Pfff.
