Victoria visited this afternoon The Stockholm Environment Institute. SEI was formally established in 1989 by the Swedish Government and it is an independent international research institute. Due to Victoria's work as UN’s advocate for the new Sustainable Development Goals she meets people who work with the environment and that kind of things.
Svensk Damtidning was at the place when Victoria arrived to the Institute.
How does it feel to be here today?
- Exciting! And lots of fun. It shall be enjoyable to get the time to sit down and talk, Victoria said.

Victoria's calendar was updated today. She meets Mogens Lykketoft, the President of the UN General Assembly on Monday 15th.

Today Victoria delivers the Global Change Award at the Stockholm City Hall.
The Global Change Award is an innovation challenge, initiated by H&M Conscious Foundation. By catalysing green, truly groundbreaking ideas the aim of the annual challenge is to protect the planet by closing the loop for fashion. The H&M Conscious Foundation is an independent non-profit global foundation initiated by H&M. The mission of the Foundation is to drive long lasting positive change and improve living conditions by investing in people, communities and innovative ideas. Through partnerships with experienced organizations around the globe, the Foundation now drives change within the three focus areas Education, Clean Water and Strengthening Women. Today, the Foundation is funded by the Stefan Persson family, founders and main owners of H&M. Since 2013, the family has donated 900 million SEK to the Foundation.
As the competition of Global Change Award closed on 31 October, more than 2 700 innovators from 112 countries had signed up to share their ideas. The five winners share a grant of €1 000,000 and get tailor-made support for one year from H&M Conscious Foundation, Accenture and KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The Jury chose five winners and people have been able to vote for their favourites. The winner who gets the most votes, gets €300 000, the second €250 000, and the third, fourth and fifth €150 000.

Johan T Lindwall writes and tells at the video that when Victoria arrived to the gala, she was asked if there was three or four (meaning the work events left), but Victoria thought that they were asking if there would be three or four babies and laughed "No, No!". Victoria wore a dress from H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection Spring 2016.

Looking radiant and ready to pop. Over eight months pregnant and still actively doing duties I am not surprised she has only one more duty on the calendar. Time to focus on her little baby on the way.

Not a fan of the style of her dress, the neckline seems odd on her. Liked majority of her maternity clothes this time but this was a miss IMO.


Nice initiative set up by HM. I know Victoria is good friends with one of the HM heiresses, and often wears their clothes, so no surprise she would be involved in some of their non-profit work.

Victoria and Daniel are friends of the ceo of H&M, Karl-Johan Persson and his wife Leonie. Leonie Persson (born Gillberg) is Victoria's friend from childhood, they were at the same class at Enskilda gymnasiet. Victoria, Daniel and Estelle spent time with the Persson family in St. Maxime last summer. And Karl-Johan Persson told at one school visit of Prince Daniel Fellowship about how he and Daniel play golf together. Karl-Johan's father Stefan Persson is the king's friend, so the families have known for a long time.
Victoria has two events at her calendar now, one tomorrow and one on Monday. In addition to that, the king is at the Royal Technology Mission in Japan on 15th-20th February, so it seems that Victoria is the regent in Sweden on that time, since Margareta Thorgren said that Victoria wants to work until she gives birth.

Does regent actually entail anything? Sorry if this is a dumb question. Like does the king have weekly meetings or anything she has to attend in his stead. Or she just acts if something comes up

The swedish constitution says: "The Head of State shall be kept informed by the Prime Minister concerning the affairs of the Realm. The Government convenes as Council of State under the chairmanship of the Head of State when so required".
The king and Victoria attend at the meetings of the Council of State, one of them was yesterday. Normally there are only 3-4 meetings of the Council of State in a year. Maybe the prime minister and government also send daily information about the decisions of the government to the Head of State so that the Head of State is up to date what is happening at his country. The Marshal of the Realm is responsible for contacts with the government and parliament, the information goes through him.

Hmmm, when looking at the Video and the arrival of CP Victoria, who was the lady who accompanied her? It seems, she tried to wrap her arm all the time and it seems Victoria shaked her arm once to "get rid of the bond" (after 47 secs) .... followed by the lady who tried to hold her arm again.


I assume, she just wanted to give her a hold (high heels, heavy pregnancy, but......) but nevertheless .... an awkward moment.....

One left, other than being regent when her father is away. She had an event today where her and her father met the climate ambassador.

Had to go look at the Swedish version of the royal website, as the English hasn't been updated. But she is meeting with president of the UN General assembly on Monday the 15th

The Global Change Award has been a big news here in Finland, because the winner, who got most money from the five winners, is from Finland.

Victoria has had one more work event, from the court website:
One day in mid-February, the Crown Princess visited the Bernadotte Library at the Royal Palace to take part of the ongoing work on the collections. Bernadotte Library's collections include around 100,000 books and 500,000 photographs that have belonged to the Bernadotte dynasty. There are also large collections of sheet music and maps.
During the morning, the Crown Princess visited the library and photo and album archives.
At the Bernadotte Library the Crown Princess heard, among other things, about the work with the book collections such as cataloging and band descriptions. And about the large amount of requests coming in from researchers and the public.

Court Instagram:
The Crown Princess and Palace librarian Arvid Jakobsson visit the archives at the Royal Palace. The album is from 1862 and belonged to Karl XV. The album was a gift from the "Royal Marine Regiment" in Karlskrona and contains photos of the officers at the military unit.
