At Facebook of The Friends of the Royal Armoury yesterday:
This afternoon we were visited by Princess Christina Mrs. Magnuson and Carl Otto Werkelid who had a huge job to sign 160 copies of their book "She was called Daisy". Tomorrow, the well-packed books will be picked up and we hope that they will reach the customers at the beginning of next week, just in time for the midsummer weekend.

No, Gustaf and Vicky filed for divorce on 13th January 2020, and the divorce was finalized in the end of last year. I have been written about their divorce in this thread.

An order or a medal provided with diamonds is very rare and constitutes a personal thank you from the monarch to highly deserved recipients. The person who most recently received a medal with diamonds in Sweden was Prince Bertil, who received the same medal on his 75th birthday on 28 February 1987. Members of the royal family receive royal medals only for special merits.

The court put a video to its Facebook and Instagram of princess Christina telling about receiving H.M. The King's Medal 12th size with diamonds in chain.
"A few weeks ago, a very rare medal was awarded by the King,
The recipient was Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson, who received H.M. The King's Medal in the 12th size in with diamonds in chain. In this way, the King wanted to honor his sister for her "extensive non-profit community initiatives in several areas". Receiving a royal medal with diamonds is a special honor that the King previously only presented to Prince Bertil for his "life's work for service of the Realm".

Princess Christina says at the video
"I was both surprised, very happy and very honored, that my brother has actually appreciated all that I have done over the years, which is quite a few years now, if we add them up. I thought the ceremony was very nice and very personal.
Getting a gold medal from your little brother is a bit special, I must say. We have been working together for many years since we were left alone in 1973 when grandfather passed away. It feels like we've been on a pretty long journey and it feels incredibly nice to have this as a thank you for being there."

It's very nice that the court put this interview to its social media.

The Friends of The Royal Armoury tell at its Facebook:

We will meet Princess Christina Mrs. Magnuson again on Sunday 5 December at 18.00 when we go on a digital visit to Drottningholm Palace, which is world famous for many reasons such as the theater but also the interior which is somewhat unique in its kind. The entire facility is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. For the Princess, the palace is the place where she and her family have celebrated Christmas for most of their lives, and this is where she finds many memories of the older generations of Bernadotte. The Friends of the Royal Armoury receive the unique opportunity to hear Princess Christina Mrs. Magnuson herself tell about "her" palace based on the book "Days at Drottningholm" which she wrote together with Carl Otto Werkelid, who also participates in the conversation, as well as the Friends Association's board member Claes-Johan Larsson.
Members of The Friends of the Royal Armoury can also buy the book "Days at Drottningholm", signed by Princess Christina Mrs Magnuson and Carl Otto Werkelid.

Princess Christina told about Drottningholm Palace at a digital meeting of The Friends of The Royal Armoury yesterday evening. With her at the meeting she had author Carl Otto Werkelid, they wrote the book "Days at Drottningholm" together, and Claes-Johan Larsson from The Friends of the Royal Armoury.

One participant writes at her Instagram
"A nice unique digital tour of Drottningholm Palace with The Friends of the Royal Armory. Princess Christina and Carl Otto Werkelid guided us around the palace and talked to Claes-Johan Larsson. Princess Christina celebrated almost every Christmas here: - This is really a winter palace for me, says Christina. When King Gustav V lived here, we children were lined up in order of age and then the king rang in his little silver bell. Then the doors opened into the hall where the Christmas presents were lined up, not wrapped, following a tradition that Crown Princess Margareta brought with her from her English Christmases. The Christmas presents were tried in the large Hall of State. She pointed out good slopes to sled in in the beautiful baroque garden. Princess Christina and Carl Otto have written the book "Days at Drottningholm", about the world heritage and the palace that carries both childhood memories and a fascinating story where strong personalities lived and worked. Queen Hedvig Eleonora built the magnificent palace and Princess Christina has been fascinated by how the powerful women had a great influence on the palace. One hundred years after the palace was completed, Queen Lovisa Ulrika built the palace with one more floor and the palace got the look of the day. With the extension, she made room for her major interests in literature, culture and science. Carl Otto said that his favorite room is the library. Lovisa Ulrika's interests greatly influenced her son Gustav III. The foundation for the Swedish Academy was created by the queen who invited the scientists to the palace. Among other things, we got see the magnificent Hall of State, which is the largest hall in the palace. Here are contemporary portraits of what the royal houses and power looked like in the 19th century. Queen Josefina wrote to her royal relatives asking them to send their portraits. Princess Christina and Tord Magnuson's wedding dinner was held here in 1974. The parade bed chamber was used for ceremonial receptions. Lovisa Ulrika took the bed there. She also used it as a bedroom, just as later her son Gustav III did. Interesting to find out more about the palace's history and get personal anecdotes from Princess Christina. I have the nice book and became curious to read about it again".

The Friends of the Royal Armoury at its Facebook about the digital visit to Drottningholm Palace with princess Christina and Carl Otto Werkelid last Sunday.
"On Sunday evening, the second of Advent, around two hundred members of the Friends of the Royal Armoury had the great pleasure of enjoying a very special viewing via Zoom.
On a gray cold autumn day, the Friends of the Royal Armoury received the privilege of being shown around Drottningholm Palace by Princess Christina Fru Magnuson, together with Carl Otto Werkelid, in a conversation with Claes-Johan Larsson, journalist and member of the Friends of the Royal Armoury's board.
The recording gave us several nice pictures of what it was like to experience childhood Christmas at the Palace at Gustav V and her own wedding dinner in the palace's Hall of State.
The palace itself lights up life in all its glory and if you want an interesting and personal story, you should take the opportunity to read the book "Days at Drottningholm" by Princess Christina Mrs. Magnuson and Carl-Otto Werkelid. A nice Christmas gift tip for those interested!"

Sjöberg Bildbyrå has published these retro photos of princess Christina at its Facebook.
"Princess Christina photographed in 1969 at her MG in the courtyard of the Royal Palace.
The car, which is two years old here, is an MG MGB, a sports car in the color Sany Beige, manufactured by the British car manufacturer MG between 1962 and 1980. It was available as a convertible and with a 2 + 2-seater covered body (GT). The six-cylinder versions manufactured in 1967-69 were called MGC.
Typical 60s princess fashion as well."

The Friends of The Royal Armoury published a photo of princess Christina and Carl Otto Werkelid at its Facebook:
This Tuesday we were visited again by Princess Christina Mrs. Magnuson and Carl Otto Werkelid for a few hours of diligent book signing. The last time we had the pleasure of welcoming the author duo to the Royal Armoury was in June, when stacks of "Hon kallades Daisy" filled the tables. Now it was instead "Dagar på Drottningholm" that was to be signed. The book is delivered wrapped in an elegant case and in order to be signed, it must first be freed from the plastic, then taken out of the case and then placed in the said case again. This took its time, but everyone struggled and after a few hours, 120 books were signed, packed in packaging and provided with address labels. When this post is published, we hope that our book buyers have had their ordered books delivered, just in time for Christmas.
