King Carl Gustaf and crown princess Victoria attend tomorrow the Change of Government Council (Skifteskonselj) at the Royal Palace.

Svensk Damtidning writes that they both have to leave Solliden, but they are not allowed to do it together.
Damtidning speculates that because from Kalmar Airport there was only a single flight with SAS, which they sometimes use, so most likely is that at least the king, maybe even Victoria, will be picked up by a government plane, the government has two planes they can use.

Svensk Damtidning tells with photos about the king leaving Kalmar to fly to the Change of Government Council today:
At 09.34 this morning, the king arrived at Kalmar Airport, in a Volvo XC90 that he himself drove, together with his bodyguards and Margareta Thorgren, director of the information department. One of the government plans was waiting to take the king to Stockholm. The king went on board carrying a brown briefcase, and the plane took off at 09.51. Fast and smooth.
Victoria was not present, as the King and the Crown Princess never travel in the same plane.

The king started his speech
"This year is 100 years since the first Swedish parliamentary election with universal and equal suffrage was held.
For almost half that time, almost 48 years, I have been Sweden's king and head of state. And thus led a number of Change of the Government Councils, here at the Royal Palace."

Joakim Hall posted more photos to his Instagram and writes:
"Yesterday I was inside the Royal Palace in Stockholm and photographed King Carl XVI Gustaf, Crown Princess Victoria and our government which carried out a so-called council (from the French "conseil" which means advice). There, the change of government was noted. It was a bit difficult, it was quite crowded inside the Cabinet Room and you were not allowed to move during the approximately five minutes you are allowed to be inside the Council. I photographed on behalf of the Swedish Press Agency (@swedishpressagency).

King Carl Gustaf was chosen as the Öland Inhabitant of the Year in 1996 and Crown Princess Victoria in 2018.

Photos from Instagram of Clara Rubensson, who sang at the event, of her with queen Silvia:
"Today I had the honor to come to Solliden Palace and sing for this year's Öland Inhabitant Lotta Sjöberg, the royal couple and the Crown Princess. The whole thing was broadcast live on radio P4 today just after 15. At 15:45 my new single ‘Love in Siberia’ was also played. A very nice and eventful day simply! Thank you for the cake and the beautiful bouquet!"

At the king's initiative, the royal family members visit all 21 counties of Sweden. The visits began last autumn, but only four visits were done before the corona pandemic's second wave began.
In August the tour continued and continues throughout the autumn. Margareta Thorgren says that the King in his role as head of state felt a special responsibility during the pandemic. The King greets that the county visits are important and it is extremely interesting to visit all of Sweden's counties. The whole purpose of these visits to the counties is to listen and create an image regarding the pandemic and the effects and problems.
The royal couple visited Norrbotten, and next week the crown princess couple will go to Örebro.
Sofia doesn't accompany Carl Philip at the county visits to Gotland and Östergotland, Thorgren tells that she is still breastfeeding and is at home now.

The Royal Court Parish at its Instagram:

The evening's speakers were Princess Christina and author Carl-Otto Werkelid, who told about their writing process of writing the book about Crown Princess Margareta "She was called Daisy".
Due to the limited number of participants in the Bernadotte Library, the event was also broadcast on the web.
