King of Sweden appoints new Marshal of the Realm

King Carl Gustaf two days ago appointed Professor Svante Lindqvist as Marshal of the Realm (roughly equivalent of Lord Chamberlain in other countries) from 1 January 2010. Lindqvist is 61 years old, president of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and director of the Nobel Museum in Stockholm. He will succeed Ingemar Eliasson, who has been head of the Swedish Royal Court since 2003.
