He is getting older; at least, to me he looks a lot older than when we saw him more regularly.

I'd forgotten about it but when I did a google I saw that Michael had a myocardial infarction in early 2020. By the looks of it has taken some toll on him.

Welcome to the Royal Chapel and celebrate the fourth Advent with the Royal Court Parish! We meet the parish's new Court Chaplain, Hans Ulfvebrand, former dean in the Stockholm Cathedral, who invites us to the classic "Sister Floor" on Ersta diakoni's third floor where he is now active. Hans Ulfvebrand talks about Mary, God's word to Mary gave her ordinary reality a new meaning. Mary trusted that God has use of her ordinary life, in which God acts. The deepest matter of the manger, the cross and the empty tomb is thus; "Do not be afraid"! We get to listen to "Världens frälsare kom här", as well as Max Reger's "Marias vaggsång". The music is performed by court organist Mary Ljungquist Hén, court singer Miah Persson and Åsa Landholm, harp. The program is led by The Reverend, Court Chaplain and Rector of the Royal Court Parish Michael Bjerkhagen.

On January 14, 1521, the people of Dalarna chose 16 young men to guard Gustav Eriksson Vasa in the liberation struggle against the Danes. The 16 young men from Dalarna are the origin of today's Livgardet, Life Guards, which thus celebrates 500 years today.

Seasonal employees to the royal parks
The royal palaces are surrounded by scenic parks that are worth visiting. All parks are open all year round, around the clock. Before the spring and summer of 2021, we are looking for garden workers for the royal parks. The business is conducted at Drottningholm Palace Park, Haga Park and Ulriksdal Palace Park, Gripsholm Castle and Tullgarn Palace Park and at Northern and Southern Djurgården.

Press release from the court
H.M. The King has appointed lawyer Lena Frånstedt Lofalk as the new Court Solicitor from 1 June 2021. Lena Frånstedt Lofalk succeeds Axel Calissendorff, who has held this position since 2009. The Court Solicitor is the legal advisor to H.M. The King and other members of the Royal Family.

Axel Calissendorff said to Expressen:
- I will soon turn 68 and have had my position for 12.5 years. It is such a position where the responsibility should change and preferably not exceed 12.5 years. Lena Frånstedt Lofalk is one of the country's most skilled lawyers, now the royal family receives better service than they received during my time. I wish her luck and congratulate the king on a good choice.
Lena Frånstedt Lofalk said:
- It is an honor to be asked and I am very happy, both surprised and happy.
You are the first woman to be appointed, does it give extra weight?
- I think it is extra fun because over the years I have contributed to various mentoring projects and encouraged women to become partners and managers and then it is important that you see that there are opportunities to move on.

Article about queen Silvia's lady-in-waiting Harriet Bredelius and her husband Peter at Skogsvärden Magazine in March 2019.

With hunting and recreation as major interests, the couple Bredelius have made important investments on their forest property in Sörmland. After several years of work, they now have a game-adapted, beautiful and accessible forest that has also led to new roads.
- Today, our forest is full of game, which is a good fit as we have started to conduct hunter-gatherer training here, says Peter Bredelius.
The dream of owning a forest was something that Harriet and Peter Bredelius shared already when they met in 2009. Since Peter then worked in Örebro and Harriet in Stockholm, they agreed to find a property that was somewhere in between.

Metal conservation at the Royal Collections Department
At the Royal Collections Department, which is one of the court's offices, about 30 staff members take care for and manage the royal movables collections. One of them is gold and silversmith Gideon Teichmann.
Most of the historical objects are used in royal ceremonies, representations and receptions and a large part is displayed to the public in the palaces that are usually open to visitors. The collections are also available to researchers and objects are lent to exhibitions in Sweden and abroad.

How to preserve a silver suit from the 18th century? Is it washed with soap and water or vacuumed? Conservator Augusta Persson tells more.

Early morning Stockholmers could be surprised by horses and music on the streets on Wednesday. It was the Mounted guard's parade of exercises that went through the central parts of the capital.
The regular Mounted guard parades have, like so much else, been canceled as a result of the corona pandemic and its restrictions. This has led to some riders and horses not yet having time to participate in a regular Mounted guard parade. Therefore, a number of training parades are held during the year, so that both horses and riders can be prepared and feel safe when it's time again.
- We remain even though we have not been seen in the guard parades for more than a year. Over one of the gates at my old school you could read the proverb "practice gives skill", says Lena Linn, general secretary of the Mounted Guard, and continues:
- So it is for all of us, two as four-legged.
