Hello = this isn’t off the record, but I couldn’t see
exactly where to send this, though there is no need to attribute this
to me.

You are out by a generation with crown princess
Victoria of Sweden’s connection to Sibylla of Schesen-Coburg-Gotha
(Queen Vic of Britain’s grand-daughter). Sibylla was her grandmother
(mother of King Gustaf, whom you refer to as Carl XVI).

Victoria’s mother was a German commoner, Silvia Sommerlath, who met
Gustaf at the Munich Olympic Games where she had an organising role.


Åsa Wahlquist (yes, that’s a Swedish name)
