Jt might have been the presentation of a loyal address ijy prominent citizen. In fuel it was (lie ceremonial delivery of the new Swedish Constitution, winch strips Iho monarchy of all its power and which is, moreover, clearly de- signed fo encompass its demise.

The traditional rule of descent exclusively in the male line is explicitly re- affirmed, To quote one mem- ber of the Commission of In- nuiry, this is "because, taking into consider a (ion the extent of republican feeling, we do not want to strengthen the position of the monarchy by allowing fe- male succession."

Carl Gustav, who is 26, is untnaried. Prince Ber- til is CO and living with a com- moner whom he cannot marry because this would disqualify him from acting as Regent, which he is periodically ed to do.
