Thanks! That was indeed what I was looking for. Was the Telegram from Daniel?

Maybe LadyFinn can clarify, but my interpretation was that when a Swede wins gold (or a medal maybe) at the olympics, he/she receives a congratulatory telegram from the King. In this case the King brought the telegram personally

I don't think so. I think the king gave this congratulation telegram from him and queen Silvia published at court Instagram yesterday.

That makes sense but I just hope they can be here to witness the great breakthrough in winter sport of this country.

BTW both medalists are returning to Spain, maybe Felipe and Letizia will meet them in the coming few days.

On Sunday morning king Carl Gustaf was watching the slopestyle competition and met swedish skiers.
Court Instagram

King Carl Gustaf said: Slopestyle is a bit difficult to understand (laughter). But it's an judgement sport and it takes time before you see the differences.

Later on Sunday king Carl Gustaf watched men's 4 x 10 km relay in cross country skiing.

Saw Prince Albert at the Bobsled this AM US Eastern time. He was down with the team at the top of the run. Sorry, no screen grabs.

King Carl Gustaf watched on Monday curling with Anette Norberg, a retired Swedish curler and olympic champion. Norberg and her team won the gold medal in women's curling in 2006 and 2010.
- It's nice to meet (Norberg) again because we were able to follow her amazing game. Swedish ladies have been doing great efforts for a long time and it is fun that new teams will be able to continue on that track. The guys have also done a great job, says the king when Sportbladet meets him in the VIP lounge.
He is relaxed, walks to the coffee maker and fills a paper mug that he places in another to not burn his fingers.
Team Hasselborg lost against South Korea by 6-7 but it was the first blue-hole loss of twelve matches.
Much speaks of the fact that there may be Swedish in both women's and men's finals.
- You can always hope and they have good conditions, the king says.
What experiences the king has about curling?
- Well, I've played once and it was awful long ago when the World Cup was settled in Karlstad in 1977. It was very bad. It was the first time I came into contact with it, but then it has not been so much. But I always learn during the trip, he says, looking Anette Norberg with gratitude..
Yes, the king has the company of the curling queen ...
- Hahaha. Yes, I get good coaching.
Does the king have a nice time in South Korea?
- Sweden has had very good success and little resistance to the final light. It goes up and down, but we've got what we've expected and maybe even more. Now we are hoping a little bit success of curling and other things.

Only the King of Sweden still present at the Olympics? What has happened to King Willem-Alexander, Prince Albert, Princess Anne and the others? I understand why the Danish Royals are absent and that they can't stay for all of it, but they all seem to have disappeared. To me it seems the Olympics have not been as well supported by the Royals as some previous games, or am I mistaken?

The three people you mentioned presented in Pyeongchang but have left already (normally they don't stay too long? In Sochi they only stayed a couple of days). I think the reason that we don't see so many royals is because of the long distance between Europe and South Korea, it's almost other side of the earth. Previous winter games were in either Europe or North America, which were not that far.
