King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden believes that abolishing the Salic law retroactively was a mistake

Copenhagen (EFE).- King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden considers that abolishing the Salic law with retroactive effect in his country, which made Princess Victoria heir to the throne, was an “error” and an “injustice” with his son, Prince Carlos Felipe.

The Swedish Parliament repealed in 1979 the Salic law, which regulates the monarchical succession in favor of men, after the birth of Carlos Felipe, although this measure did not come into force until two years had passed, so he was heir to the throne in that period.

“Having laws that work retroactively is not very smart, I still think so. My son Prince Carlos Felipe had already been born and, suddenly, there was a change that left him with nothing. It is quite strange, “said the Swedish monarch in a documentary on public television SVT, whose content has been partially advanced today by the channel.

Carlos XVI Gustavo, 76, described the decision as “complicated” and “unfair”, in addition to considering it “terrible” as a father.
In his opinion, it would have been necessary to have “cold blood”, because such a change should have occurred in the next generation.

The Swedish monarch stressed, however, that Carlos Felipe accepted the situation without problems and that this has not affected the good relationship between the two brothers.

The SVT documentary, which premieres this Sunday, is broadcast in the year in which Carl XVI Gustaf, Sweden’s longest-ruling king, celebrates fifty years on the throne.

The Swedish Royal House has prepared a program of events that will culminate on September 15 and 16, when the anniversary of his coronation is celebrated.

Carlos XVI Gustavo has three children: Victoria, the heiress, 45 years old; Carlos Felipe, 43; and Magdalena, 40
