Statement by H.M. The King due to Kofi Annan's death
It is with great sorrow that I and the whole royal family received the message about Kofi Annan having passed away.
Kofi Annan was a warm and listening person who was characterized by profound wisdom.
Kofi Annan was a great leader with much empathy who was constantly working for human rights.
Over the years, I and our entire family developed a personal friendly relationship with Kofi Annan and his wife Nane.
Our warmest thoughts go now to Nane Annan and her family.

King Carl Gustaf visits today Bygdsiljum and Skellefteå.
Press release from the County Administrative Board of Västerbotten:
The theme of the day is From forest to sustainable construction.
The visit begins in Bygdsiljum at Martinssons. There is a walking tour as well as a dialogue about the conditions for industrial wood construction and the possibilities for refining the Swedish forest and using it to build climate-friendly housing.
In Skellefteå, a visit is planned at Morö Backe school, made of solid wood from the forest around Bygdsiljum. At Morö Backe school there is a clear link between the fact that the school environment is of wood well-being, as well as school results and health.
A walking tour and exhibition of Ekorren's parking garage, an example of how modern infrastructure projects can be built in wood, is followed by a seminar on industrial and sustainable wood construction. The day ends with a visit to the Zero sun pilothouse, a modern villa as self-sufficient for solar energy even during the dark season.

King Carl Gustaf meets the Swedish Academy's permanent secretary Anders Olsson today.
Olsson will present the names that the Academy wishes to be elected as new members. The Swedish Academy has reached a "breakthrough" and expects to be able to elect new members this week. But first, the king, who is the Academy's patron, must approve it.
After the meeting of the Academy on Thursday, contacts between the court and the academy have been made, and on Friday the king will meet with temporary permanent secretary Anders Olsson. Marshal of the Realm Fredrik Wersäll says:
- I have talked with the permanent secretary. The goal is that the king meets the permanent secretary late tomorrow morning, so that he will be able to present the names of the persons whom the Academy has decided to opt for, if his majesty approves.
Wersäll has also been in contact with the king himself about the meeting.
- I have talked to the king this evening to create the conditions for a meeting between the permanent secretary and his majesty, some time in the late morning tomorrow. We both thought it was reasonable, given the very high attention that had been paid to this issue, that the king's standpoint will come quite fast, Wersäll continues.
The meeting will be held at Stockholm Palace, and will be completely closed.
There is no indication in advance that the king would go against the Academy's proposal, according to Wersäll. But:
- Because I don't know who they are, it's hard for me to say. But it has usually been that the king has accepted the assessments made by the Academy. In the special situation that is today, the situation may be different, but I do not dare to speculate it. I hope the Swedish Academy has done careful work, and nothing suggests that it has been a long process that has been carefully thought out.
Fredrik Wersäll is one of those who has been identified as a possible candidate as a member of the Swedish Academy. But that the Marshal of the Realm dements.
- The fact that I have this conversation with you leads to the final result of that speculation, he says.

The king cancels trip to China
The King's planned trip to Hong Kong and Shenzhen in China has been cancelled at the last minute.
King Carl Gustaf has cancelled his participation a delegation trip to China organized by the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, IVA, according to information officer Ulrika Näsholm. The trip was due to start on Sunday.
The reason is said to be the Swedish government crisis.
"Due to the ongoing government formation process in Sweden, the King has decided to resign from participating in IVA's trip to Hong Kong and Shenzhen 25 November-1 December", Näsholm wrote in an email to Di.
Kungen ställer in resa till Kina

- The reason is the ongoing government formation process, and the king has decided to cancel attending IVA's trip to China, said Margareta Thorgren, director of the press department.
- Because the king has an important constitutional role in government formation and council for a new government, the king has decided to abstain this time. It's just because the IVA trip to China is supposed to last a whole week, and then the long distance has also affected the decision.
The king has nevertheless been on a number of trips during the fall. Does the king consider that there has been a change in government formation?
- Absolutely, the whole fall there has been very much travel and a just so complicated planning both in terms of travel and any consulations that you also have to prepare. If a council can be carried out relatively quickly, it is still a lot of planning given that we try to make sure that the entire royal family and, above all, the king are able to implement what is planned.
- This trip is so much longer, one week is a long time. The king consults and receives information from the Speaker continuously, no later than yesterday and a meeting is scheduled next week. In the state of government's formation process, the decision is that the head of state should be in Sweden, says Margareta Thorgren.

According to several Swedish media outlets the real reason behind The King cancelling his visit is Swedish displeasure with the imprisonment of Swedish-Chinese publisher and author Gui Minhai who's been kept behind bars since being kidnapped by Chinese secret agents in 2015.
The story broke when SVT claimed that negotiations to have Gui Minhai suddenly halted earlier this week causing The King and the Foreign Office to reconsider his trip.
Head of the Royal Press Office, Margareta Thorgren maintains that the reason behind the cancelled trip is the domestic political situation in Sweden.

Yes, it appears Sweden is at long last getting a new government. With Löfven as the new/old PM.

What are the formalities regarding the Swedish King, if any, when there is a majority pointing at a new PM?

The King heads the special cabinet council held when there is a change of government, but besides that he has no involvement whatsoever in the forming or approving of a new government.
After the formation a new government the Royal family hosts a dinner for the new government and the new parliament.
This means that there's no shuffling between the House of Parliament and the Royal Palace like Helle's endless parade over the court yard at Amalienborg. [emoji6]

Congratulations to Hédi Fried for a well deserved award for her tireless work against racism and for democracy. The pictures of the 94-year old demonstrating against the Nazi rally in Ludvika this summer alone is enough for her to receive my utmost respect.

I'd say that although well deserved the award is also politically motivated. Unfortunately we see today that the far-right is on the rise and by highlighting Hédi Fried's work against them and for victims of genocide the King takes a stand and clearly shows where his sympathies lie. Hédi is an inspiration to everyone who is opposed to racism and illiberal ideologies. Seeing photos of her, aged 94, demonstrate against the Nazi rally in Ludvika last summer almost made me cry.

Arnault received the order in 2015 by the Swedish government after the King three times had declined requests by Academy member Per Wästberg.
The decision to strip Arnault of the order was made by The King only hours after Arnault's request to have his conviction tried by the Supreme Court was denied.

Svensk Damtidning got information that king Carl Gustaf was visiting a boat at Skeppsholmen close to the Royal Palace. They left the office and got in time to take some photos of the king.
It was the French sustainability boat Energy Observer that attracted the king and you can really understand that.
This is the first hydrogen-powered vessel in the world, an innovation that attracts great attention with its revolutionary environmental technology.
- The king was told about this boat and he wanted to know more, it became a completely unplanned visit, tells Margareta Thorgren.

King Carl Gustaf visited today the fire area around Järvsö and Ljusdal.

His Majesty the King visited the forest fire-ravaged area in Kårböle during Wednesday. The King praises the efforts made in the summer of 2018, but believes that society has probably fitted down its defense and protection capabilities too quickly.
In the summer of 2018, enormous forest fires raged in the municipality of Ljusdal. In the areas around Kårböle, nature is still noticed by the disaster.
King Carl XVI Gustaf, who himself is a forest owner, recalls:
- It is very dangerous, the wind can turn in different directions and then you have to run. It really is a craftsmanship, they did a tremendous job of those who were here and helped.
- We learn every time, we are not worse than that. We may be a bit more alert and build a fire defense. We see that the defense that we have installed now is being rebuilt. It was thought that the world would be better, but now you feel that maybe it went too far, we take lessons and we must do that here too. But maybe screw up the pace a bit, says the king.

On Wednesday, June 5, the King visited some of the areas in Hälsingland that were hit by the fires last summer.
Upon arrival at Järvsö station, the king was received by county governor Per Bill. The King then attended a lecture and a seminar on fire fighting in connection with the fires in the summer of 2018.
In the afternoon, the King was given a tour of the fire area and, among other things, met one of the many landowners who were affected.

I'm a bit puzzled over the fact that The King hasn't met either the Speaker or the Prime minister since January. I've always been under the impression that they meet regularly something I feel they underscored when the Instagram post from his meeting with PM Löfven said that "these meetings will be held regularly going forward".

The King to Norrbotten - makes a county trip
On Wednesday the king makes a visit to Norrbotten.
King Carl XVI Gustaf will visit Piteå and Luleå. The theme of the trip is "New high-tech initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions".
The visit starts at the Sunpine bio refinery in Piteå, the world leader in the production of renewable fuels. The tour then continues to the wind farm in Markbygden, which contributes to the production and development of renewable energy.
The last stop is made at Luleå University of Technology. The king will, among other things, receive a demonstration of the VR studio and the drone Hugin, which is used in both research and education. Hugin's tasks include mapping the Swedish bedrock to bring knowledge of how the rock and ores have been formed.

The King's clear mark - praises Victoria: "Understood"
Our monarch ducked the questions about the revolving family decision - instead he chose to highlight Crown Princess Victoria.
- She has understood that it is important for the future, says the king about Victoria's environmental commitment.
On Monday, King Carl Gustaf made a decisive decision. He then signed the document which excludes Princess Madeleine's and Prince Carl Philip's children from the royal house. The decision makes it clear that it is the King and Crown Princess Victoria, who, together with Queen Silvia and Prince Daniel are Sweden's leading representatives. When Princess Estelle reaches adulthood, she is also expected to represent the country.
On Wednesday, the king made his first trip after the decision published.
He visited Piteå and Luleå, under the theme "new high-tech initiatives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions".
The visit started at the company Sunpine in Piteå, which is a world leader in the production of second generation renewable fuels. Then the King visited Luleå University of Technology, to get a view of the VR studio and the drone Hugin.
The king chose not to answer any questions about the family decision. But both children and grandchildren still came up on the agenda when the king was asked how he engaged them in the environmental issue. The king then diverted attention from the grandchildren, to focus instead on Crown Princess Victoria.
- The grandchildren I don't think you need to raise because they are so small. It takes a few years for them to understand this, I promise. But the young people and the crown princess are very interested, he says.
The king says he has been working on the environmental issue for 30 years, highlighting the crown princess and her work.
- She has been here and looked at this facility as well. She also does this as much as possible, she understands that it is important for the future, he says.
