When they first met and were dating, what language did they speak with each other?  German?  I presume he switched to Swedish as she learned it, yes?

English. He can't speak german, despite his mother was german. She always spoke (very bad) swedish with her children, at least in public. It was said CG didn't allow her to speak german with the children, but I don't know if this is true. Fact is, the children can hardly speak german. It's ridiculous if you see WA for example.

I seem to remember Vic making a speech in German years and years ago (I think its in the "speech" section of the Royal website) and someone singing a birthday song to her in German and she understood. Whether her proficiency was helped by schooling or learning in her adult life idk.
I do find it cute that Daniel was/is learning Portuguese. It must have been hard for Silvia to not share her heritage with her children in terms of language, so being able to help Daniel with his Portuguese must be a nice blessing. I know Vic can speak French too.
Was it German or French that Chris and Madde spoke when they were in public while dating? I've never heard CP speak another language bar Swedish and English (I think?), but I was wondering whether his dyslexia would impact on learning other languages? I really don't know this, so if anyone could offer more information, I would be happy to learn!

Silvia is beautiful in these photos. I don't find her to be a particularly attractive older woman, but I can see her beauty and joy in these younger photos.

I once read a story by a German President who on a state visit gave the children German children's books and was told, that the kids didn't speak german.
On the other hand I heard Victoria speak German and (as opposed to WA!!whose German sounds like Rudi Carrell and who makes a lot of grammar mistakes) she had no discernable accent and spoke really off the cuff.

WA surprised me, as I expected him to have a good grasp of German, because of his German father (and his family) and maternal German grandfather. The last one, Prince Bernhard, was fluent in Dutch, but with a heavy German accent.

They used German in New York City, which I think was not the best choice to try for privacy, since there are so many Yiddish speakers there.

I heard Vic several times and her german was quite bad. Never heard Madeleine or CP speak german though. Would be interesting to hear.

Thank you for answering Smiley yes, it is a little strange of a choice, considering the demographics!
