For a week ago you asked about remarcable akts of kings or queens. That reminded me of a speech of the Swedish king. After the tsunami catastrophe at Christmas 2004, in which over 500 Swedish adults and children were killed, Carl Gustaf gave a moving speech in 2005 that received a lot of recognition. He said that he felt with those children who missed their parents because he had also suffered as a fatherless child. His father, Gustaf Adolf, was killed in an airplane crash on January 26, 1947, at the Copenhagen Airport while visiting Denmark.
