The Institute was founded in 1925 by Crown Prince Gustaf (VI) Adolf as a strong driving force. Crown Prince Gustaf (VI) Adolf was the board's first chairman. The purpose was mainly to promote the ancient science, but the institute would "serve the humanistic research and artistic interests."

Svensk Damtidning wrote some days ago, that Victoria and Daniel take Oscar with them to Italy. Information officer Ulrika Näsholm from the court press department said that Estelle stays at home in Sweden but Oscar is so young that he needs to be close to his mother and the plan is that he goes to Italy with his parents.

During their visit Victoria and Daniel visit Football club AS Roma's project for young people with disabilities. Svensk Damtidning tells that they might meet the captain of AS Roma, footballer Francesco Totti at the meeting. Information officer Ulrika Näsholm from the court said to Svensk Damtidning that they do not know yet, but she thinks the club is working on it. It is Francesco Totti who has started the project for young people with disabilities which the Crown Princess couple will visit.

Expressen's reporter Elias Giertz and photographer Sven Lindwall follow the visit in Italy. The article tells that there was a lot of media when Victoria and Daniel arrived to the Chamber of Deputies to meet Laura Boldrini. Victoria and Daniel greeted happily before they went to their meeting. Ulrika Näsholm told that Oscar will not attend at the program events.

Love how the daily fail couldn't do enough research to fill an article so they spent a chunk talking about Oscar and his baptism instead

The feast of st Lucy is normally hosted on December 13. I guess they decided to host a few days late to welcome the couple. It's one of the first things I knew about Sweden. I remember as a kid learning about Christmas celebrations around the world, and the wreath of candles on head always stuck in my mind. I always loved the more unusual traditions. Growing up in a British background, our customs always seemed boring compared to others.

I realize seeing Victoria with the nuns I have stayed with them. The nuns among other things run accommodations for travelers. I had heard staying in a convent was a safe option for women alone in Italy. I mainly stayed at a hotel outside Rome, but I did spend two nights at a convent run by the sisters. I would again.

Svensk Damtidning writes about Victoria and Daniel meeting the Bridgettine sisters. The meeting touched Victoria to tears. She has namely met Mother Tekla, who welcomed the royals, several times before. Among other things, during a state visit with the royal couple in 1991. And in the midst of the sudden emotional storm, she decided to hold a spontaneous speech.
- I see you as my close friends. There is a lot of emotions coming to me, said a visibly moved Victoria.
- The Crown Princess was very moved. She had tears in her eyes before she would go in and meet with the nuns, told a representative of the Swedish delegation.

The old photo of Victoria with mother Tekla is lovely
http://www.svenskdam.se/wp-content/u...oder-Tekla.png

AS Roma's general manager Mauro Baldissoni said to the press that "this visit is a source of pride to us, we are very pleased with what we have managed to do with this project. The princess was very interested, asked many questions and asked us also documents that we provided. We then offered to give them more information and collaborate in order to replicate the same project also in Sweden".

A couple of lovely photos the mother hugging Victoria
In one of the rooms were old photographs of Victoria with Mother Tekla. When Daniel saw the photos he was immediately curious, went back and looked and called then for Victoria.
- I hardly recognize myself, said Victoria to Daniel.
The picture looks to be taken around 1991 - but Daniel said he did not really know the circumstances surrounding the picture when he was asked.

Victoria and Daniel visited Football club AS Roma, the aim was to immerse themselves in a project the club operates for children and youth with disabilities.
During their visit Victoria and Daniel met several of the children who train in the project. The children were delighted by the Crown Princess Couple and wanted to take both selfies - and penalty shots. One of the girls insisted that Daniel would shoot at goal when she stood as goalkeeper. Daniel was keen on playing football. It was he and Minister Anna Ekström, who dribbled out on the plane. Victoria remained at the side.
But at the end of the visit, while Roma would present a gift to the couple, it was Victoria who stood in the center. She received a custom-Roma-shirt with number one and the "Victoria" written in large letters.
- Daniel, look, Victoria exclaimed with joy.
Daniel had to settle for a Totti-shirt. Perhaps compensating for Francesco Totti could not be present during the visit.

Wonderful photos so far. Not surprised to see Jamie and his wife there. Not only fellow royals, but as an ambassador, second reason to be invited to such an event hosted by the embassy.

Daniel to no surprise really seemed to enjoy the soccer. Love the photos

Victoria was do genuinely touched and emotional with the nuns. It was lovely to see the nun still had a photo of the two of them from years ago.
