Princess Christina has written in collaboration with journalist Carl Otto Werkelid a book "Dagar på Drottningholm" (Days at Drottningholm). It will be published next spring by Bonnier Fakta. Photos are taken by one of the most famous swedish photographers, Ralf Turander.
Personal memories and favorites from a loved Palace.
For Princess Christina Drottningholm is an old love. There she has celebrated Christmas every year since childhood and often participated in various private and official events. The Palace's history, environments and personalities, not least the strong women who left their imprint there, have always fascinated her.
She highlights from the individual events in Drottningholm history her favorites and shares her own experiences at the Palace. She tells the story of the young widow Hedvig Eleonora who started the building of the Palace, dance performances at the ancient theater, about grandfather Gustaf VI Adolf's garden plans and unusual Christmas dinner, about sledge trips with siblings in the park and her wedding waltz with her husband Tord Magnuson at Karl X Gustav's gallery and much more.
The book will be published also in english.

I wish the book were in English. But I see she wrote two memoirs.

Caroline Ranby has written a book
Ebba Hochschild Att leva efter döden (To live after death)

Ebba Hochschild's life was filled with drama. She was born in Copenhagen in 1866 as the youngest daughter of Carl and Beata Gyllenstierna. At the age of 21, she married Carl Hochschild and within a few years she had become the mother of two children.
Ebba joined the circles around the court and in 1908 she was formally appointed as Queen Victoria's First Lady of the Court. As the Queen's confidant, she was allowed to go on trips to Rome and Capri, including glamorous state visits and balls at the Palace. During her stay in Germany, she became also aware of the World War II's political game and got to experience the horrors of the war close by.

Historian Herman Lindqvist has again written a book about the Swedish royal family
Bernadotte: For Sweden all the while
200 years on Sweden's throne.
By 2018, Bernadotte has been 200 years on Sweden's throne, longer than any other dynasty in our history. At the same time, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia have been king and queen longer than any of their predecessors.
The founder of the dynasty, the French marshal Jean Baptiste Bernadotte, came from simple conditions and became king of Sweden and Norway. And so strange is that since Jean Baptiste Bernadotte was crowned King of Sweden, the Bernadotte dynasty is today the only dynasty in the world, which through the same branch of the same family without interruption of war and revolution, continues to be kings of a free people and independent kingdom for two hundred year.
Herman Lindqvist talks about the Bernardotte's colorful men and women, about successes and failures, about parties and everyday life. Personally, knowledgeable and very entertaining.
Bernadotte - för Sverige hela tiden - Albert Bonniers Förlag

The cover (which isn't very good imo) has been painted by Marek Skupinski, at the first photo with Herman Lindqvist.

Princess Christina. mrs Magnuson is writing a book about her grandmother, crown princess Margareta. The book will be published in April 2020.

Hon kallades Daisy (She was called Daisy)
Princess Christina never got to know her grandmother. Crown Princess Margareta, Gustaf VI Adolf's first wife died just 38 years old exactly 100 years ago, pregnant with her sixth child. Not only did she leave the family in paralyzing grief - she was mourned by a whole people. How come? And why was it so quiet after her?
Princess Christina has searched the private family archives for answers. She has gone through letters, photo albums and documents and traveled to her cousin Queen Margrethe in Denmark to find out more. In "Hon kallades Daisy", she gives life and color to an open and versatile talented English princess who fell in love with a Swedish prince in Cairo, was called the ray of sunshine at Stockholm Palaces, and tones as the first modern royal in Sweden.
Through her search, Princess Christina finally gets to know her grandmother Daisy. In the book she writes about her foresight and warm interest and commitment to people, even far outside her own circle, and she talks about her artistic talent and great interest in gardening. But she has also received an in-depth picture of her grandfather, Gustaf VI Adolf, when she meets him as a young man in love and later as fresh in the role of crown prince. In a conversation with her cousins ​​Queen Margrethe and Princess Benedikte of Denmark, which is one of the chapters in the richly illustrated book, the images clarify even more.
The book is written in collaboration with Carl Otto Werkelid, who has been working as a journalist and cultural writer since the 1970s and for many years worked at Svenska Dagbladet, including as cultural director. He has also been a cultural adviser to the Swedish Embassy in London.

The Queen’s Fortune
A Novel of Desiree, Napoleon, and the Dynasty That Outlasted the Empire
A sweeping novel about the extraordinary woman who captured Napoleon’s heart, created a dynasty, and changed the course of history.
As the French revolution ravages the country, Desiree Clary is faced with the life-altering truth that the world she has known and loved is gone and it’s fallen on her to save her family from the guillotine.
The Queen's Fortune _ Allison Pataki

Author Allison Pataki at her Instagram
"I've carried Desiree's story around in my head for years. The amount of time and work it took to do the research, drafting, editing (and more editing...always more editing...) felt insurmountable at times, and life has a tendency to get in the way and constantly redirect. But today, 'The Queen's Fortune' is finally out in the world and in the hands of readers, and I could not be happier to share this story with you! Desiree's life is filled with all of the good raw material of any story: love, heartbreak, intrigue, power, relationships, resilience, and of course the stunning backdrop of Napoleonic France and one of the most tumultuous eras in modern history. So, whether you wish to be transported through a story to another time and place, whether you wish to learn about this forgotten yet highly significant woman from history, or whether you wish to draw inspiration or entertainment from a stunning life and an epic, true story, I hope that this will be the book for you. I'll leave you with this morsel: when Napoleon broke Desiree's heart and left her for Josephine, that was only the beginning of Desiree's journey, one that would lead to her not only outlasting Napoleon, but ultimately going on to found a dynasty of her own, and one that still rules to this day in Sweden. The current Crown Princess of Sweden and next in line to the throne is Victoria, and her middle name is Desiree, as she's named after the dynasty's founding matriarch. Victoria's sister, Princess Madeleine, has the middle name Josephine. Why? Why do these two modern princesses share the names of the two women whose fates were entangled back in Napoleon's day? Why are these two fabled historic women still interconnected in the modern family of the beautiful royals who hand out today's Nobel Prizes? You'll have to read #QueensFortune to find that out. But I'll tell you only this: history is juicy and dramatic and you just can't make this stuff up."
