At least three complaints of corruption were filed against Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria in a scandal concerning gifts that she and her husband, Prince Daniel, have accepted after their marriage, on June 19, announced Swedish media on Monday.

“Complaints have been filed and I will hear the case next week,” Sweden’s top anti-corruption prosecutor Gunnar Stetler told the Expressen daily, adding that he had yet to decide if he would launch a preliminary investigation.

The complaints concern gifts they have accepted from a businessman, Bertil Hult, consisting in the use its private yacht and hydroplane, during the honeymoon, according to several publications.

These gifts are valued at several million swedish crowns (hundreds of thousands of euros or dollars).

Monday’s reports came a day after Peter Wolodarski, the top commentator at Swedish paper of reference Dagens Nyheter, launched an attack on the princess for accepting the gifts.

“It is strange that Sweden’s heir to the throne would allow a Swedish billionaire to provide transport and housing during her honeymoon when the same person through his (business) can potentially be interested in having the favours repaid,” Wolodarski wrote.

The royal palace meanwhile insisted the princess had done nothing wrong.

“This was a private trip and a wedding gift from an old friend of the royal family,” royal court spokeswoman Ulrika Naesholm told the TT news agency.
