    The King and Queen of Sweden are cancelling their trip to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang so that they can attend the funeral. King Carl Gustaf is first cousin to Queen Margrethe. R.I.P.

    Christening of Prince Alexander: September 9, 2016

    Before Gustaf V abolished the tradition in 1907, every prince had their own crown which was worn at coronations and every year at the opening of the parliament. The crowns were introduced at the coronation of Gustaf III in 1772. Today, the crowns are on display at christenings, weddings and...

    Christening of Prince Alexander: September 9, 2016

    What kind of possibilities are you thinking of? The King has complete freedom to grant or withdraw titles within the Royal Family.

    Christening of Prince Alexander: September 9, 2016

    Well, Crown Princess Victoria is godmother to Princess Leonore and Prince Carl Philip is godfather to Prince Nicolas, but their other godparents are non-royals.

    Christening of Prince Alexander: September 9, 2016

    The godparents will be announced on Friday. There will be foreign royals attending the christening, but we do not know if any of them will be godparents.

    Christening of Prince Alexander: September 9, 2016

    A quick lock at the various Royal Calendars show that Queen Margrethe (Prince Carl Philip's godmother) as well as Crown Prince Haakon will probably not attend the christening of Prince Alexander. They both have other engagements.

    Swedish Royal Family, Current Events Part 7: May 2014 - Sept. 2017

    There was also "Änkehertiginna" (Dowager Duchess) for the widows of princes, but the last one to use that title was Princess Teresia who became a widow in 1873 and lived to 1914. Later royal widows like Ingeborg, Sibylla and Lilian kept their titles. My guess is that if Silvia is alive when...

    A Boy for Carl Philip and Sofia - Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil: April 19, 2016

    The children of Carl Philip was always going to outrank Madeleine's. This is not unimportant to the King and I think that he will show more active interest in Alexander's christening than others. Still, Carl Philip is not the godfather of any European royal other than his niece and nephew. Lack...

    A Boy for Carl Philip and Sofia - Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil: April 19, 2016

    In the end, I think the christening will be in Stockholm in August. Prince Alexander will be the first in succession of future Queen Estelle's cousins, and I think that the King will insists that the christening takes place in the Palace with godparents from other royal houses etc. I would not...

    Christening of Prince Oscar: May 27, 2016

    I am not sure. The chain is an optional part of the arms. My guess would be that since the arms were presented five days before the announcement that Daniel was appointed to the order, they simply did not want to give away the surprise. ;)

    Christening of Prince Oscar: May 27, 2016

    Before 1975, all Swedish knights of the order of the Seraphim were given the chain. Foreign knights were given it only as a special distinction. Heads of state were usually given the sash at the first state visit and the chain at the second one. After 1975, the chain is not automatically given...

    Christening of Prince Oscar: May 27, 2016

    I don't think this list includes personal friends. Court staff is also omitted. So there will probably be plenty of people atteding that are not on the list.

    Funeral of King Gustaf VI Adolf: September 25, 1973

    Since the King is healthy and only 70 years old, this has not been a subject of much speculation. My guess is that the arrangements would be very similar, with a procession from the Palace to Storkyrkan and then to the royal cemetary at Haga.

    Royal Protocol and Etiquette

    If you want to adhere to protocol, you wait until the royal person offers you his or her hand. Bur the SRF is very laid back when it comes to these matters, and so is the Bishop (although he is of noble birth).

    King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th Birthday Celebrations: April 25-30, 2016

    The Court has posted a picture here. The medal consists of the King's monogram in gold.

    King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th Birthday Celebrations: April 25-30, 2016

    Still, they could have sent someone to the Te Deum service on Saturday morning. It would have been a nice gesture. I'm not familiar with the Closing of the Octave celebration though.

    King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th Birthday Celebrations: April 25-30, 2016

    The British send no one, and neither does Luxembourg. Even Japan sent a representative but the Europeans couldn't make the effort?

    King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th Birthday Celebrations: April 25-30, 2016

    That was the case at Victoria's wedding. The Danish and Norwegian guest stayed at their ships, which was convenient for everyone since so may prominent guests were in town and even the Royal Palace couldn't house everyone.

    Her yacht is. It was probably sent in advance so that it will be ready when the danish royals arrive tomorrow.

    King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th Birthday Celebrations: April 25-30, 2016

    Too bad Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister won't be attending. She had to resign as Mistress of the Robes last year due to sickness, but she had hoped to become well enough to participate in the celebrations. She is turning 90 in a couple of weeks.

    King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th Birthday Celebrations: April 25-30, 2016

    There is now a guest list for the concert this evening. Prince Albert will be there as well as Princess Takamado of Japan and representatives from non-regning houses such as Romania, Serbia and Bavaria. Seems like most of the royals will arrive tomorrow.

    Stenhammar Castle, Flen

    Since the number of dukedoms is limited (the 25 traditional provinces, or "landskap"), sooner or later the King would have been forced to give away the Dukedom of Södermanland and the rights to Stenhammar. In this way, it stays in Carl Philip's family. It probably was the King's plan all along.
