Statement by HM The King regarding the demise of Ingvar Kamprad

Ingvar Kamprad was a true entrepreneur who, through his life’s work IKEA, helped bring Sweden to the world.

He was a committed, down-to-earth person. Only this summer, The Queen and I had the privilege of working together with him on the matter of housing for the elderly.

My family and I would like to express our deepest condolences to Ingvar Kamprad's family and friends.
