Queen Silvia is very up-tight and boring. She has lived in Sweden for more than 30 years and she still can't speak Swedish properly.

Isn't there some question over her parents history in Germany?
|Quoting Matt27 (Reply 9):|
Her father was a member of the Nazi-party back in the 1930s, but I don't think that is a big deal at all. I mean wasn't most of the Germans members in the party? And what has that to do with her? That story was just something for the tabloids on a slow gossip-week.

Any additional comments? Thanks again though for your helpful replies.

Does the Swedish royal family actually have any power, or is it more like Britain where they exist as figureheads but hold little political power?
|Quoting MIAspotter (Reply 20):|
Qantasforever any chance you can get me her number? LOL

As Matt27 wrote the king's popularity has grown a lot since the tsunami. When the people was mad at the government for doing nothing right (I think they did a very professional job)

lol Well, she spends most of her time in Paris so I've rarely seen her. The only member of the house of Grimaldi I see on a frequent basis is Princess Stephanie. You want her number? (I'm kidding)

They hold no political power at all. Influence at times, perhaps, but the Swedish Royals are probably the most "figureheadish" of all European monarchies and British monarchy.

I find it hilarious to watch the leftwingers blow their lid off in outrage.
