Indeed,it's something for sensation creatures with nothing else at their hands,or minds,then to revel in nonsense.It's all old news,but hey,who
cares these days,there are always those easily fooled and they fill pockets....

Their book caused great scandal and perhaps the greatest crisis of confidence in the monarchy in modern times.
In "The Reluctant Monarch", the king and his closest friends are singled out as a wildly partying gang who visit black clubs with criminals and strippers - and who get "coffee girls" delivered after dinner.
Now, more than ten years later, the authors tell in a new podcast for the first time about how royal friends should have tried to stop the book.
- The core is that the men of power have never had to take responsibility for their actions, says co-author Tove Meyer, who believes that the book may have received a different reception if it came now, after metoo.
The director of the press department Margareta Thorgren says:
- We have no comment on a book that was published more than ten years ago, nor on a new podcast whose content we do not know.

I also wonder about that, but comparable allegations regarding the king emeritus of Spain in relation to the Spanish security services seem to be attracting less coverage than the investigations into his finances.

I think it is normal that authors discuss their previous works when promoting new material.

True, but when the spin around the promotion campaign mentions the previous book more than the new book and it's very serious subject it all smells of pure speculation to make some money. Unfortunately for the authors the reporting about the scandal the new book has "uncovered" was big for a few days and then disappeared.

About this at TV4 News morning today.
"The scandal book "Carl XVI Gustaf - The Reluctant Monarch" about the King of Sweden struck like a bomb. Now the background to the book will be the main subject in the new podcast "Motiv". Entertainment reporter Malin Collin recalls how the royal friends tried to stop the revelations in the book and asks the question of whether king can be the world's worst profession."

The word "scandal" is quite inflatoir. For every little unimpressive fart of any royal, in Sweden or elsewhere, the wore "scandal" is used. Pffff....
