Not the first nursing mama to leave a baby for a few hours. Sure Dan was left with a few bottles in case Oscar woke up

I think she's an amazing role model
What a sense of duty
You can't help but like and admire her

It must have been very important for her to attend. Hope she can bond with her new baby now for a few more weeks. Those early weeks are a very special time you can never get back.

Swedish journalist Matilda Andersson at her column in Aftonbladet yesterday about Victoria at the lecture of Ban Ki-moon:

I want to see more dead tired princesses
Crown Princess Victoria made her first official mission last week - less than a month after giving birth. Most mothers are on maternity leave longer than that (but most of us have also another type of job).
Some newspapers chose to focus on the Crown Princess' golden coat while others angled a short video sequence where the Crown Princess sits in the audience and keeps on falling asleep. Aftonbladet belongs to the latter. A clip titled "Struggling - to stay awake" and three pictures of a very tired crown princess, however, got some readers very angry.
The comments on Facebook: "Poor style to show her like this," "What a mother is not tired during the day. Low". " Typically Aftonbladet, so damn low of you to publish this. Besides that she is royalty, she is human, treat her like that". The inserts got lots of like markers and reporter (read: yours truly) got the fewer.
For me the angle was clear - to show the beauty of that the Crown Princess is like any young mother: completely dead tired. That for once see something real and not just a signature hairstyle with gold-colored gown. For those of you who didn't know: it's not only really hard to be recently given birth mother while trying to glow - it's also quite unnatural.

Although royal media coverage is different from the rest - nobody is questioning the absurdity of spending hours on speculation about whether Princess Sofia will make a Kate Middleton and self showcace the newborn "absolutely brilliant fresh" - so is the idea of perfection around expectant princess mothers hand in hand with other media reporting related to pregnancy and childbirth.
Headings such as "so she lost her pregnancy kilos" and "The mother retains her six-pack, even though she is pregnant" easily win over the content that is about pelvic pain, severe mood swings, fatigue, hemorrhoids and brutal tiredness. No wonder that parts of the society believe that a pregnant woman is able to perform as usual for nine months until the D-day - and then quickly return to their usual themselves.
That was precisely why it was so liberating to see how the Crown Princess repeatedly failed to keep her eyes open. Not even she, despite the blue blood and diamonds in the ears escapes the sleep deficiency of the baby time - and that it is okay to show it.

I see her point and hope Victoria wasn't mortified by the photos because she made the attempt to be there even though dog tired! She really is a modern day princess.

Crown Princess Victoria, Current Events Part 10: October 2014 -

If she is mortified by the pictures she has no reason to be at all. The Swedes love and respect her tremendously and this will probably endear her to people even more. Firstly, falling asleep as soon as you don't have your baby in your arms is something every parent to a newborn can recognise and secondly it does prove that it's Victoria that's on baby watch at night and not a nanny.

I agree. I had to chuckle at her "caught" look. Let's be honest: she has just given birth, (less that motnth), psychological as well as physical changing are happening, she has a neborn who most likely will make her and Daniel sleepless, plus an energetic litle girl at home. Add to this a warm room with some quiet lecturing and napping comes so easily.

The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs published yesterday an article about Victoria's work as one of the Advocates to promote the Sustainable Development Goals.
The article has statements from Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström.

Global Commitment: Crown Princess Victoria
From the article:
Crisis and conflict management and international peace support operations, including in the UN, are some of the issues that particularly engage Crown Princess Victoria. She has, for instance, been a patron of the Church of Sweden’s international work for more than 15 years.
In her engagement she draws inspiration from figures including her relative Folke Bernadotte:
“Conflicts and wars inflict wounds. They engrave antagonisms into people’s memories and hearts, and those antagonisms persist down several generations.
Working for peace means acknowledging those wounds. Being aware of the history behind the conflict, but having the strength and the wisdom to rise above it for the sake of reconciliation and the future. Folke Bernadotte was the UN’s first mediator. He is one of our foremost role models in the Swedish tradition of working for peace.”

Expressen GT writes about "Victoria's fine gesture to Gunhild Stordalen"
Victoria delivers the Global Innovation Award at the EAT Stockholm Food Forum. The award ceremony takes place just days before Gunhild Stordalen (one of the founders of the Forum) goes to a further severe treatment against the deadly disease.
Gunhild Stordalen has a tough summer ahead. She will next week be hospitalized for a new treatment for the deadly disease.
- There will be five weeks where she performs a new stem cell transplant chemotherapy and everything that belongs to it. The summer will be different. There is much time in the hospital, her husband Petter Stordalen to Norwegian TV2.
The day before she travels to the Netherlands to start treatment she has decided to participate in the global conference EAT Forum where among other scientists and politicians meet to discuss healthy and climate friendly food.
Crown Princesses Victoria and Mette-Marit attend at the Forum. Victoria delivers the Gunhild Stordalen Innovation Award, it goes to the entrepreneur Erik Lindberg, writes Dagens Industri.

This Forum is important for Victoria in her role as the UN Sustainable Development Goal Advocate.
The Advocates at the UN website
Sustainable Development Goals Advocates - United Nations Sustainable Development

Two of the 17 UN goals are
Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

And about those are spoken also at the EAT Forum.
At least one of the speakers mentioned Victoria's role as an advocate and said that we need more people to important positions in the world to affect things.

Expressen about yesterday:
Crown Princess Victoria delivered an award during the afternoon when entrepreneur Erik Lindberg, who started the company Innoscentia got Gunhild Stordalen Innovation Award for the development of digital technology to measure dangerous bacteria in meat.
- It feels great. It is fun and shows that we are on the right track, he says.
After the ceremony Lindberg had a chat with the crown princess who was very interested in the newly developed technology - but the conversation also came in to the youngest family member in crown princess family.
- She was super nice and thought it was an interesting innovation, exciting and wished good luck. So I wished her luck with the little prince.

It is always nice to work with Mette-Marit, said Victoria to Svensk Damtidning yesterday. Svensk Damtidning writes that when it was time for a lunch, they went to a car and it was rumoured about a private lunch at Haga Palace.

Maybe Mette-Marit also stayed at Haga Palace during her visit in Sweden?
