The royal couple has started again after the holiday.
King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia have spent large parts of the holiday on Öland and Solliden. Earlier in July, they took the opportunity to take a detour to France and Saint-Tropez together with, among others, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia, Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill.
The royal family returned to Sweden two weeks before the crown princess’s birthday on July 14, which this year was celebrated as usual at Solliden, but also in Borgholm’s castle ruins, where the classic Victoria concert was back after the pandemic.

This week, the King and Queen went to the French Riviera for a romantic holiday of their own. The king already owns Villa Mirage, which he inherited from Prince Bertil. The villa is located on the outskirts of the small coastal town of Sainte Maxime in the Bay of Saint-Tropez.
First assignment after the holidays
Now the royal couple is back in Sweden and on Thursday it was time for the first mission after the holiday – namely to visit Gårdsfisk in the countryside of Skåne. There they got a tour where the visit began with Niclas Palmstierna at Maltesholm Castle outside Tollarp where he, as a contract breeder, has built one of Gårdsfisk’s first external stables for fish. The king and queen were briefed on the history and innovation, followed by an eventful tour among the fish tanks in the stables – where the queen got to feel a few splashes from the African freshwater fish.
– We are extremely happy that the King and Queen are visiting us, and that they have a genuine interest in Swedish food production, which has the potential to place Sweden on the world map when it comes to sustainable fish farming, says founder and CEO Johan Ljungquist in a press release.
During Friday, the royal couple visited the scouts’ Jamboree22.
