At the Youtube channel of The Royal Palaces was this morning published this video:

Join in a tour with The Royal Stables' Daimler DE27 Limousine and hear driver Martin Forsén tell you about The Royal Stables' oldest car, which was ordered by Gustaf V and has been used ever since. Like 10 years ago, on June 19, 2010. Then Martin Forsén drove the King and Crown Princess to the Cathedral where the marriage between Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel took place.

Martin Forsén tells at the video that also the King's sisters, queen Silvia, prince Bertil and princess Lilian have been driven to their wedding with this Daimler. Every time Forsén has been out on a drive with the Daimler or the Stables' other veteran car Cadillac, the cars are washed and dried and put to their little car museum, Sibylla's garage. With the car has only been driven 4400 miles.

What a great video! I so do hope they do a similar video of some of the older cars in the Royal Mews in the UK at some stage.

On Tuesday evening, King Carl Gustaf arrived at the Chinese Pavilion in Stockholm to get a preview of Konstfack's exhibition "Going elsewhere – Material Interpretations of the Chinese Paviliont" - and he did it in a real roar.
It is no secret that the king likes cars and driving fast.
In his possession are already a Shelby Mustang, an AC Cobra, a De Tomaso Pantera, Ferrari 599 GTB and a Porsche 911 Targan.
And since May last year, the king also has the shiny blue BMW he arrived in: an M8 Competition Coupé. The luxury car has a V8 engine with 625 horsepower and a price tag of SEK 1.7 million.

King Carl Gustaf drove yesterday a Volvo XC90 from Solliden Palace to Kalmar Airport, when he flew to Stockholm to attend the Change of Government Council.

The Armed Forces at its website:
The Royal Barge Vasaorden is renovated
The Royal Barge Vasaorden is in for a thorough renovation. It was built during the years 1921 to 1923 and is an exact copy of the Royal Barge from 1774, which burned down in 1921. The original Vasaorden was designed by the famous shipbuilder Fredrik Henrik af Chapman for Gustav III.
- It is so fun that we are now renovating the Royal Barge when she is 98 years old. This means that she will be in top condition for her 100th birthday in 2023, says Anders Hörnfeldt at the Marine Staff.
Renovating soon 100 years old wooden boat is completely natural, it must be done with all older boats. They are often worn after a lot of use. Vasaorden has been used quite rarely - and that is not good for a wooden boat either.
- The first Vasaorden was 147 years old. The current barge will turn 100 years old in June 2023. With the thorough renovation that is now being carried out, she will have no problem getting older than 147 years and it is 2070. Then you can think about what is original and what is a replica, smiles Anders Hörnfeldt.
The royal family uses Vasaorden at official ceremonies. The last time Vasaorden was used was in 2010, at Victoria and Daniel's wedding. Then Anders Hörnfeldt was the commander of the eighteen rowers.
The next occasion when Vasaorden will be used is not planned. Only the king can decide when that will happen.
