  • Description

    EACH MORNING AT 9 O'CLOCK, A SMALL GREEN SPORTS CAR DRAWS UP OUTSIDE THE ART AND HANDICRAFT CENTRE IN STOCKHOLM. FROM IT STEPS A VERY SPECIAL PUPIL - PRINCESS DESIREE, GRANDDAUGHTER OF KING GUSTAV ADOLF OF SWEDEN.

    THE PRINCESS HAS BEEN A STUDENT FOR THREE TERMS AT THE SCHOOL OF TEXTILES; SHE IS STUDYING WEAVING, ART NEEDLEWORK AND DESIGN DRAWING. PRINCESS DESIREE IS SAID TO FIND THE ATMOSPHERE STIMULATING; SHE CLAIMS IT IS YOUNG AND CONTEMPORARY.

    HER INSTRUCTRESS, EDLA MARTIN, FINDS THIS ROYAL PUPIL A TALENTED GIRL, ADDING THAT THE PRINCESS IS DEFT AT COMPOSITION, HAS A GOOD SENSE OF COLOUR AND, SINCE SHE IS PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN HER STUDIES, WORKS HARD.

    PRINCESS DESIREE HERSELF ENJOYS EMBROIDERY AS WELL AS WEAVING. BUT SHE INSISTS SHE COULD NEVER TAKE IT UP AS A PROFESSION - IT'S STILL STRICTLY A HOBBY.

    THE ENGAGEMENT WAS ANNOUNCED BY THE SWEDISH COURT TODAY THURSDAY OF PRINCESS DESIREE TO BARON NICLAOS SILFVERSCHIOLD, 29, A WEALTHY SWEDISH LANDOWNER.
