Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examinate the statements and verbal attributions of King Carl

XVI Gustaf of Sweden in the early 2000’s. More exactly I’ve got two question formulations:

Which statements does king Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden make during the early 2000’s and are these

statements, in line with the king’s attributions, non-political, party-politically neutral and noncontroversial

according to different perspectives? Question number two is if there are to find any

boundaries for where the verbal attributions of Carl XVI Gustaf seem to go when he expresses himself in

the role as the king of Sweden and the chief of state in the early 2000’s. My procedure is to read the

Christmas speeches of Carl XVI Gustaf during the 2000’s and use former beheld statements of Carl XVI

Gustaf to seek answers to the research questions. My conclusions are that the king does make political

as well as party-political statements according to different perspectives. The king sometimes speaks

fondly about EU, advocates multiculturalism, praises the family as a social building block and embellishes

the Swedish monarchy. According to different perspectives these notions cannot be seen as nonpolitical

nor party-politically neutral because in some questions different opinions are prevailed among

parliament parties and other bigger parties in Sweden. However, the statements of the king can hardly

be seen as controversial since his statements often rest upon strong common values and national unity.

The verbal boundary of Carl XVI Gustaf is floating and cannot be unravelled, but it’s possible to approach

the truth with three cores: 1. The king can encourage, although not tell how something is to be

done. 2. The king shall keep within the national unity and common values. 3. It’s not always enough with

Swedish national unity, nor shall Carl XVI Gustaf butt in discussions that undermines the relations with

other countries.
