Princess Christina and Carl Otto Werkelid were interviewed at Radio P4 Extra about their book.
Prinsessan Christina fru Magnuson lär känna sin farmor – i ny bok 5 maj kl 15.25 - P4 Extra – Gästen _ Sveriges Radio
https://www.instagram.com/p/B_zgfwzpWA3/

Princess Christina talks about her new life, after leukemia. She has a long sick time behind her, with her chronic leukemia and the very tough stem cell treatment she went through three years ago.
But now it has brightened for Princess Christina. She has just released her second book, She was called Daisy - Finding a Grandmother, and the work of getting to know Crown Princess Margareta - during three long winters in the Royal Palace archives - has been a good help on the road to healing.
- It has been a puzzle since no one who knew her is left, so I have been looking for clues and allowed to enter her world. And it's been an adventure.
This is stated by Princess Christina in P4 Extra, where she was a guest today with the host Titti Schultz. Or rather: Titti Schultz was a guest she Princess Christina, for the interview was done at the book publisher in Stockholm.
Christina continues:
- For me, it is a very personal attempt, a selfish project to find my grandmother and to get into a person that I very much wanted to get to know.
The Margareta that Princess Christina met during the work emerges as a warm and spontaneous personality, but also with a seriousness and depth.
Have you found any events about Crown Princess Margareta where you felt that "no we can't bring this"?
- Yeah! But there will be no glimpses of it, because that is why they have not been taken!
But this is where Princess Christina's co-author Carl Otto Werkelid hawks a bit, and says that at this point they have not agreed quite:
- I probably wanted to bring little more than Christina has thought…
Christina, your grandmother was just 38 and pregnant with her sixth child when she unexpectedly died of blood poisoning. What made that your grandfather never wanted to talk about her after that?
- Yes, I have been thinking about that too. There are certainly different explanations. Of course, it was such a shocking experience for the whole family. And perhaps it was also the spirit of 1920, after the war, when so many had lost relatives. You couldn't afford to grieve in the way we do today.
Princess Christina also tells her that her grandmother and grandfather were so in love.
- It was something that I absolutely wanted to show with the book. And it is also something that feels very warm in my heart!
“How do you talk about this in the royal family? Do you walk around thinking about your relatives as historical persons? Or like ordinary people?" asks P4 Extras Titti Schultz. And Christina replies spontaneously:
- Well, like ordinary people! This is our family!
Then Carl Otto Werkelid gets asked if he has found any similarities between Princess Christina and her grandmother Margareta. And he answers sincerely, despite Christina's happy protest:
- There are similarities absolutely! It is precisely in this to be very grounded, to have a clear picture of what one is doing and what the role and mission entails. That there should be a balance. There is no affectation, but straight like it is.
- Haha, I don't hear this! says Princess Christina with a giggle.

It has been a tough spring for the king's sister, Princess Christina. In 2016, she was diagnosed with chronic blood cancer. An illness that meant she had to undergo regular chemotherapy treatments and cut down on her official commitments.
But fortunately, treatments were effective and in recent years Christina has enjoyed life as a pensioner and spent much time with her children and grandchildren. Then came the coronavirus and suddenly Christina's medical history became extremely present again. As a former cancer patient, she was particularly vulnerable and the princess once again had to isolate herself to avoid becoming infected.
Christina has therefore not met her loved ones during the spring, which of course has been tough. The only one she has really been in close contact with is her husband Tord Magnuson, Svensk Damtidning has found out. The couple lives on Slottsbacken, in the middle of the city, but there have been no major excursions in the royal capital.
When the government released some of its restrictions, and announced to the public that it is okay to travel in Sweden, it was a real joy message for Christina and Tord. The couple has a summer house on Ingarö, in Värmdö municipality outside Stockholm. A favorite place that they usually go to. And now they can return to their favorite island and enjoy some of the Swedish summer in the Stockholm archipelago.

Lars Wallin on designing Vicky Andrén's wedding dress
They may have gone their separate ways. But we still remember Gustaf Magnuson's wedding to Vicky Andrén. In his "Summer" talk, his friend Lars Wallin now talks about the emotional details of the wedding.
At the end of August 2013, the royal children's cousin, Princess Christina's son, Gustaf Magnuson, married supermodel Vicky Andrén.
Today, Vicky and Gustaf have gone their separate ways. In January this year, they filed for divorce. They have a child together, a little daughter.
Lars Wallin about designing Vicky's wedding dress:
- It is always extra special when you know the bride from ancient times. As for example with the Swedish top model Vicky Andrén. Vicky was only 13 years old when we first met. I was in Italy making a TV recording for Model Search. We were going to do her first photography and filming and I immediately saw that she was a natural talent.
- Since then, we have done many photoshoots and shows over the years - both in Sweden and abroad. So when she was going to marry Gustaf Magnuson, Princess Christina's son, and asked me if I wanted to make her wedding dress, I was naturally extra happy. When you know a person, it is easier to bring out the personality in the dress. I wanted to make a large silhouette that would feel "royal", then it can easily get a little heavy but we worked with thin materials to get a sheer lightness. It was layers of silk organza and French lace that we cut out and sewed on by hand. They formed an organic pattern that looked like they were climbing over the dress.
- I think it's extra fun when the whole studio has to make an effort to the breaking point. And when their professional skills are put to the test. I myself was a guest at the wedding. Sometimes I get invited, even though I do not know the bride before.
Lars Wallin concluded:
- It's so special with weddings. To be involved in creating perhaps life's most important dress. Expectations are sky high. There are so many nerves, emotions and love.

Gustaf and Vicky's divorce isn't clear yet, officially they are still married.

Found this lovely photo of princess Christina and Tord Magnuson, from Facebook of CFHILL Art Gallery. They had visited Ylva Snöfrid's exhibition in March 2018.

Now that really is wonderful photo. It speaks of two people alive with the joy of living. The mutual comfort of a life well lived is there for all to see. They epitomize the word "content ".
