Olympic support: Swedish king and queen voted “Most Awesome Monarchs ever” by TMZ

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Swedes are often criticized for not expressing emotion openly. And normally the Swedish King would likely win the “most stiff Swede” category hands down. But I guess we can never criticize him for not showing his support for Swedish players. Definitely not during the London 2012 games.

TMZ published this image on their Facebook page last night. King Carl XVI Gustaf is stepping out of his reputation.

And we must give Silvia a pat on the back for equally expressive ’stink-eye’ for the grumpy woman in front of them. Perhaps she’s cheering for the other team?

Go Calle!
