Princess Christina is an incredibly popular member of the Swedish royal family. But despite the love from the Swedish people, she has chosen to keep a low profile in the public.
Princess Christina is perhaps the sister who has worked most in her brother's office. When the king and queen have needed help with the representation, Christina has always been there for them. She lives on Slottsbacken, in the middle of the action, and often moves out in Stockholm city.
But the fact is that Christina does not like to be associated with her title. Among other things, she has worked with the Red Cross and then Eva von Oelreich, who was previously the organization's chairman, told how the princess was as a colleague.
- Christina was extremely easy to work with. Concrete and factual. Always equally well-read and a very deep knowledge of everything we did. She was also very listening, Eva von Oelreich has told in an earlier interview with Expressen.
They got to know each other in the early nineties and Christina was very clear from the beginning how she wanted to be titled. And not.
- She made it clear early on that she was Christina Magnuson. Not Princess Christina. She used to say that here I am chairman Christina Magnuson. Not a princess.
In 2010, Christina suffered from breast cancer and in October 2016, the court announced that the king's sister suffered from chronic blood cancer. In other words, the last few years have been really tough for the princess, but she has gone through both chemotherapy and radiation. And today Christina is well and can enjoy the quiet life as a pensioner, with her husband Tord, the three sons and grandchildren.
