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.
Expressen has tried to reach the Swedish Minister of Foreign affairs, Margot Wallström who declined to comment.

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]
