Majesty!: The German and the King
Silvia and Carl Gustaf of Sweden

In a way, she is also our queen: she was a hostess at the Olympic Games, he was Crown Prince of Sweden. "It clicked," is how Carl Gustaf described the moment he met Silvia. Four years later, Silvia Sommerlath from Heidelberg became Queen Silvia of Sweden.

With Silvia's move into Stockholm Castle, the royal family's popularity ratings shot up to previously unattained heights: A picture-book family, sharing their idyll with the public and the team of authors. In a very personal interview, Queen Silvia recalls her wedding and a serenade of a special kind: in her honour, the pop group ABBA performed the song Dancing Queen for the first time on the eve of the wedding.
