Queen Silvia launches investigation into her father’s past

Following TV4’s revelations last autumn about Queen Silvia of Sweden’s father’s Nazi past the Queen and her Sommerlath relatives have taken an initiative to investigate Walther Sommerlath’s activities in Germany and Brazil in the 1930s and the 1940s, the court’s Information and Press Department has announced.
According to its director Bertil Ternert the investigation has gone on for several months and it is intended that the results will be published in the autumn. According to Ternert the Queen uses her contacts in Germany and Brazil to get more information, but he says nothing about who is actually undertaking the investigation.
