King Carl Gustaf and Carl Philip attended the FIS Cross Country Skiing World Cup's Final Day's competitions in Falun today. They talked with Swedish skiers Frida Karlsson and Ebba Andersson. According to the court calendar, only the King should have attended.

Men's 20 km later today.

The King said to Viaplay that it's great to be in Falun. Brilliant weather and great atmosphere among the audience. He has been there many times, it's just as exciting and fun when things go well and just as sad when things go badly.
Ebba Andersson tells that both the King and Carl Philip were in a good mood, so it helped, because the race of the swedish ladies didn't go very well. Ebba thinks it was fun to have a small conversation with the King and Carl Philip, they spoke about the skiing season as a whole, the nice weather and that sort of thing. Since the King is a big skiing fan, Ebba advised him to watch the Swedish Championships next week.
Linn Svahn, who finished second overall in the World Cup, also talked with the royal duo afterwards and says they are nice. The King was going along the track to follow the men's race.

The King and Carl Philip attended today a board meeting of Prince Gustaf Adolf and Princess Sibylla's Memorial Fund.
 
The King and Victoria attended the Council of State today.
The court tells at the photo texts that on the Council table, closest to the King, is Karl XII's Bible from 1703.
The council room was used by King Gustav III as a dining room, and the woven wallpaper in the room was given to him as a gift during a visit to France in 1771. At Councils, on the table in front of the King is a writing stand made of driven silver as a symbol of the continuity of the Swedish state. The writing stand was made in Augsburg by silversmith Johannes Kilian and belongs to the objects that were saved in the castle fire in 1697.
