Sweden: Princess Birgitta of Sweden and Hohenzollern returns to Spain

NordenBladet – Since the beginning of the pandemic last year, Princess Birgitta has stayed in Sweden. Princess Birgitta of Sweden and Hohenzollern, the second oldest sister of the Swedish monarch King Carl XVI Gustaf, was prevented from going home to Spain. In an interview with the Swedish magazine Svensk Damtidning, the Swedish and German princess confirmed that she returned to Spain.

For almost a year, the Swedish princess was unable to return to her Spanish home because of the coronavirus epidemic raging in Europe and the world. Over the last 30 years, the sister of Sweden’s King has been living on the Spanish island of Mallorca. However, because COVID-19 has impacted Spain so hard, the 83-year-old Princess stayed with her Swedish family in Sweden.

When the Princess came to Sweden in March of last year, she said she was glad to be back in Sweden. Princess Birgitta remarked to the newspaper that she has appreciated the time with her brother and sister-in-law. She stated: “Obviously, it has been very nice. I have seen a lot of Sweden. It is very gratifying because I have been away from Sweden for almost 60 years, so that was very positive.”

Her Royal Highness described the uncertainty on when she can return home as “horrible” to the Swedish newspaper Expressen. When COVID-19 broke out in Sweden, the Princess travelled to Sweden. Since then, she then lived for almost a year with her brother, the King, and his family at Stenhammar Palace. She has visited her son in Germany several times, but now she has travelled back to her home in Spain.

In her normal life, Princess Birgitta lives a social life with a lot of socialising, restaurant visits and nice events. Now all that is on hold, and the Princess spends the majority of her time at home. Fortunately, she still gets to play golf daily. Princess Birgitta said: “I am not the one who worries unnecessarily, but it is a serious situation, and we must comply with it. Nevertheless, I am basically a positive person and believe that we will ride out this storm.”
