Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson, LoK av KMO (Christina Louise Helena, born 3 August 1943) is the youngest of four older sisters of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. She generally uses the name Christina Magnuson.

Early life[edit]

Christina was born at Haga Palace outside Stockholm as the fourth child of Prince Gustaf Adolf, Duke of Västerbotten, and Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. She is the granddaughter of King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden. She was Chairman of the Swedish Red Cross for nine years.[1]

Marriage[edit]

She met her future husband, Tord Magnuson, at a lunch in Stockholm in 1961. Her engagement to Magnuson was announced on 1 February 1974. The couple married on 15 June 1974 in the Palace Church of the Royal Palace of Stockholm. Because of her unequal marriage, she lost her style of Royal Highness and from the king received the courtesy title of Princess Christina, Mrs. Magnuson, a policy begun by the previous king when her older sisters Margaretha and Désirée were married before her. Under the Swedish constitution at that time, they, as women, and her descendants were not eligible to inherit the throne and are still not.

The couple have three sons: Carl Gustaf Victor (b. 1975), an economist; Tord Oscar Frederik (born 1977), an eyewear designer;[2] and Victor Edmund Lennart (born 1980), a game designer.

Health[edit]

In October 2016, it was announced that Magnuson has been diagnosed with chronic leukemia.[3]
