”The National Board of Health and Welfare has recommended the vaccine,” Nina Eldh, head of information at the Royal Court, told Expressen.
”They will have it when it is available,” she added.
The Royal Court also confirmed that Daniel Westling had his first swine flu vaccine around a week ago.
Following a kidney transplant earlier this year he was placed in a high-risk group of patients. It is likely that the rest of the Royal Family will have the vaccine within the next week.
To date, around one million Swedes have been vaccinated against swine flu in a national programme that began in mid October.
