At "The Year with the Royal Family" is shown the Crown Princess Family's visit to Slussen in March.
— We have had a fantastically nice and exciting display of Slussen and the gigantic work that is going on here, says Victoria.
Victoria explains why the whole family comes along during the screening:
— It is a historic place. Something that I and my generation lived with. The discussion around the lock and the reconstruction. This will be a part of their lives.
Estelle and Oscar are clearly fascinated with construction technology.
— It felt nice to have them with us. Then they are very interested in these questions in general! I know they have seen the Golden Bridge on several occasions at school and preschool, so seeing it in place so close was fascinating. Since it's a construction site, it's exciting for anyone.

The Treasurer of the court Jan Lindman, is interviewed at "The Year with the Royal Family"
Lindman is in charge of the finances of the court, the finances of the royal family and of the royal foundations.
The treasurer thinks it is very good that for the first time it becomes clear to the public how the money is distributed between the members of the royal family. It is stated in the court's annual report.
— There are three families who receive so-called frame amounts. It's the royal couple, it's the crown princess couple and it's Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia. The royal couple receives 8 million per year, the crown princess couple receives 4.5 million. Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia together receive SEK 1.1 million. Madeleine lives in the USA and does not actively participate in the royal mission. To the extent that she, on behalf of the king, performs duties, then she receives compensation for her expenses.
SVT's reporter asks that the royal family has a private fortune, why do they need this money?
Lindman says that the Head of State must always be independent and free from ties in society. It is very important that the Head of State and his family are financed by the state so that they are completely independent of other sources of funding at all times. One would not be able to imagine that the royal family was sponsored by any company because then they would no longer be independent.

SVT's "Året med kungafamiljen" (The Year with the Royal Family) will be shown this evening at SVT1. But the program was put to SVT Play already at 02.00 last night.
The program begins with some beautiful images from Kenya, and it's for instance nice to see the preparations to Victoria's birthday cortege:

Hänt Magazine asked Marie Nyreröd, the project manager of Året med kungafamiljen/The Year with the Royal Family, how does it actually work when you make a documentary about the royal family? Do the royals have a hand in the final production or do they blindly trust SVT?
Nyreröd says that every year they usually make a 'wish list' of what they want to film with the various members of the royal family. That list goes to the court's information department, which then takes the questions on to the royals themselves. It is usually easier to get permission to film official events than private ones, of course. The people seen in the documentary can change from year to year. Since the program is called "The Year with the Royal Family", they try to also include the parts of the royal family that do not belong to the royal house, i.e. also the families of Carl Philip and Madeleine. This year they are happy that Prince Nicolas is with. Otherwise, the royal couple and the crown princess's family are usually primarily available for interviews and participation in the Year with the Royal Family.

SVT's documentary about princess Birgitta "Sessan - en kunglig saga" (Princess - a royal fairy tale) now at SVT Play:
SVT Play

Birgitta tells that Désirée is the closest to her of her siblings, because they are so close in age. She tells that Sibylla lost a child between the birth of Margaretha and herself. Birgitta says that her father was very shy, all of them are, the siblings too. Her father was the fun parent who played with them, mother Sibylla seemed to have more duties and obligations. Birgitta tells that a day after her father was dead, her mother called her four daughters to her and said: "Your father will never come back". And after that Sibylla didn't talk about Gustaf Adolf, Birgitta thinks that it was Sibylla's way to mourn. Birgitta had seen her father for the last time on her 10th birthday party, a masquerade, a day after that Gustaf Adolf left to the hunting trip where he never came back. After the World War II Sibylla became "the German at the palace" and got anonymous letters of hate. Birgitta and her siblings didn't know what Sibylla's father had done during the WWII, that wasn't spoken about at their family. As a widow Sibylla got to choose: work or family. And she did everything she did before and Nenne (the nanny) took care of the children. Birgitta says that it was Nenne who sat beside Sibylla's bed and hold her hand, when she died.
Birgitta tells about her own life very interestingly.
Birgitta tells at the program that Désirée has been ill and not feeling well at all, but now she is better. She is asked if the siblings are going to meet again. Birgitta says she doesn't think so, they are all too old! Her sister has been ill and other sister is in England and has become older, and she herself has become older.


Some photos and cards shown at the program

This is a very good documentary, and Birgitta is a wonderful person.

This morning the program host Rania Shemoun Olsson and royal expert Claes-Johan Larsson were interviewed at TV4's News morning
Crown Princess Victoria's commitment to environmental issues is great.

Claes-Johan Larsson, expert commentator is impressed by how incredibly well-read the Crown Princess is. You see her more and more often in contexts where climate, science and archeology appear.

More TV4 News morning
Tonight, TV4's annual program Kungahuset is broadcast, where we follow the royal family over the past year together with Rania Shemoun Olsson. Here, expert commentator Claes-Johan Larsson talks about what the Royal Family's past years looked like.
Så var året med kungafamiljen TV4 Play

Rania Shemoun Olsson has hosted "Kungahuset" three years. She says to Expressen:
- I can't say that we know each other. You don't have a relationship with them, but every time we see each other, it feels a little closer. But you stay professional. It feels like the trust is there and that it is constantly being built up. And that's great.
She describes all the members of the royal family as nice and easy-going, but when it comes to the children, special consideration is required.
- When it comes to the children, you try to keep a kind of distance. You can see that they are very keen that the children are most important. They get to be with for a little while and then you get to back off a bit.
Glitter, glamor and more everyday situations will also appear in the program.
- But you can also expect great commitment from our Swedish royal family. They are very passionate about humanitarian issues and the environment.

Rania Shemoun Olsson, the host of TV4's "Kungahuset", tells to Hänt about the trips she made during the year with the royals.
Rania was first in Jordan with the royal couple and then shortly afterwards went to Kenya with Victoria. On her ocial media, she shared pictures from behind the scenes during the filming.
Rania is allowed to post pictures, she is a journalist so she should be able to do what she wants. No one can tell her what questions to ask or what to post on her social media, which is also part of her job. But she can also feel that some image was perhaps not so appropriate, it's to have a good balance. (..)

Princess Birgitta told to Expressen about making the SVT documentary of her.
There were tears and laughter at times. She was moved by looking at old things that have been shared in the family. At one point, she asked Jens Lind to stop the recording. You can see how she starts to cry and says "Can't we stop, oh no". It was her father's voice that appeared twice, when he was with the scouts and the other was during horse jumping. That moved her the most.
Birgitta has often told that she is shy, which many people find hard to believe. She says about crying on TV that she didn't want to be there at all, but unfortunately she had been persuaded. They had been requesting her. They nag and nag and say "can't you" and and "everyone wants to see you". Finally she gave in. But, she loves the program done at her home and Jens Lind. (..)

A new documentary "Sveriges sista kungar" (Sweden's last kings) is published on SVT Play Sunday 8 January at 02.00. The first episode is broadcast on SVT1 Thursday 12 January at 20.00 and second episode Thursday 19 January at 20.00.

Episode 1
Gustaf V takes over at a time when the king rules the kingdom. Democracy, universal suffrage and parliamentarism have not yet been introduced in Sweden. He is the last Swedish king who seeks political power and he actively participates in keeping Sweden out of the world wars, despite his German friendliness. During World War II, he praises Hitler's attack on the Soviet Union. Part 1 of 2: Royal power.
Kanaler _ SVT Play

Episode 2
Gustaf VI Adolf has the role of forming the government and supreme commander, but only during his time as monarch is the decision made to change the constitution so that the people rule the kingdom. A change that is introduced when the young king Carl XVI Gustaf takes over. For fifty years he has now reigned as the most powerless king in Europe. The monarchy has been reduced to a fairytale palace. Part 2 of 2: The fairytale palace.
Kanaler _ SVT Play

At SVT play it says now that the documentary can only be seen in Sweden Hopefully that changes so that we can all see the documentary.

Was a total misunderstanding
King Carl Gustaf stands by the positive judgments about the Sultan of Brunei that he made in a high-profile interview in 2004.
- He traveled around and was very close to all people, he says in the new SVT documentary Sweden's last kings.

Hear the king's criticism of the changed line of succession
The Riksdag decision that changed the Swedish line of succession, from Prince Carl Philip to Crown Princess Victoria, was unjust. King Carl Gustaf says so in a new documentary.

Rania Shemoun Olsson quits as the host of "Kungahuset", TV4's annual program about the royal family.
For Rania, last year was the third year in a row she has followed the royal family.
Now Rania reveals that she is leaving her job as a court reporter, to focus wholeheartedly on her mission at Nyhetsmorgon (News morning). In a message to Hänt, she explains the decision: "I've been doing Kungahuset for three years now and it was a fantastic and rewarding experience, but I decided already last fall that I want to focus on Nyhetsmorgon in 2023. It can sometimes be difficult to combine both of these big assignments in terms of time".
Rania revealed also who her replacement will be, it is another TV4 profile.
"My fine colleague Anders Pihlblad is taking over", writes Rania.
