Sweden has been a monarchy for more than a thousand years, with approximately seventy kings ruling during this time. The present king, Carl XVI Gustaf, was inaugurated in 1973 and is the 74:th regent on the throne.
The Swedish king is of French heritage. The Bernadotte’s have been on the Swedish throne since 1818. Before, it was only male monarchs who could inherite the crown. This rule was changed in 1980, which means that Crown Princess Victoria will be our next regent.
The Crown Princess will, if she ascends to the throne as expected, become the fourth queen regnat in Sweden after Queen Margaret, Queen Christina and Queen Ulrika Eleonora.
The Crown Princess and her spouse, Prince Daniel, are used to attend to various official engagemens. They are both highly respected and much liked representatives of Sweden, both abroad and at home.
In 2016 The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed The Crown Princess a member of Sustainable Development Goals Advocates for Agenda 2030. Since then, The Crown Princess primarily works with issues concerning health and water.
