Re: On this day, 47 years ago...and
I wonder what Gustav VI Adolf would have thought of the marriages after his death. Not one fits in with the old rules. Had he lived longer would he have forced his grandson to marry royal? Is it known if he was pressuring Karl Gustav to marry a princess and did he have someone in mind?
On 15 September 1973, King Gustaf VI Adolf died. He was then 90 years old and had been King of Sweden for almost 23 years. He was succeeded by his grandson, Carl XVI Gustaf, who was 27 years old.
...the same day, a baby boy was born in Örebro Hospital who'd cross the path of the Swedish Royal Family some 28 years later, when he became the personal trainer of The Crown Princess... We all know him since June 19, 2010 as HRH Prince Daniel of Sweden, Duke of Västergötland - husband to HRH The Crownprincess and father of Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar.
Im always intrigued by this chain of events...
Wishing Prince Daniel a Happy 47th Birthday! https://www.instagram.com/p/CFJd_DiA4Bj/?igshid=1ftrqzqvgpbd
