Expressen writes that Victoria spoke in UN about the environmental problems facing the seas in the world.
Victoria ended her speech: "A healthy ocean is not a luxury item. It is a necessity for survival. And taking care of the ocean means taking care of ourselves".
Afterwards, she told her that this is something they often talk about at home in Stockholm.
- This is something we often discuss at the dinner table at home. It's important to learn about the environment, Victoria says.
Have you managed to experience New York?
- Yes, at least the UN, Victoria answered with a smile.

Victoria is praised by Jane Lubchenco, an American environmental scientist and marine ecologist who teaches and does research at Oregon State University.

From the United Nations' official Facebook page about the Sustainable Development Goals.
"Our #SaveOurOcean photo booth got a royal visit with Swedish Crown Princess Victoria, one of the United Nations' #GlobalGoals Advocates!"
https://www.facebook.com/globalgoals...type=3&theater

Victoria was interviewed by Sveriges Radio (Radio Sweden) in the UN. Also Isabella Lövin, the Swedish Minister for International Development Cooperation and Climate and the Co-President of the Ocean Conference, was interviewed.
Over 1300 voluntary commitments were made in order to to save the world’s oceans.
At the United Nations in New York is also Crown Princess Victoria, advocate of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
- I have tried get acquainted in these questions, it is very complex. But what has stuck is how incredibly alarming it is, it's so incredibly urgent that we have no time to sit and twiddle our thumbs. It's action that has to be done, and on many different levels, says Crown Princess Victoria.

The work of the royals are discussed also at various meetings:
FAO, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations tells at its news article about the meeting between Swedish Minister for Rural Affairs, Sven Erik Bucht and FAO Director-General Jose Graziano da Silva.
"Graziano da Silva expressed his appreciation for the longstanding cooperation between Sweden and FAO in fields which include gender, forestry, fisheries, climate change, land tenure and decent rural employment. He also noted the Minister’s personal engagement to promote the rural jobs and development to make rural areas an attractive option for the youth.
In that regard, both principals discussed the recent visit of Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden to a high level event on rural women held at FAO."

This latest melon coloured dress is a great colour for Victoria and shows her figure to great advantage. I also like the return of 'bone' coloured accessories as white just doesn't go with so much.

Victoria visited on Wednesday Livgardet (the Life Guards) in Kungsängen outside Stockholm. This event wasn't at the calendar.
During the visit, the Crown Princess was able to see the activities of the 13th Security Battalion and the 11th Military Police Battalion. She got also information about how the Armed Forces handle and protect themselves against the various threats that exist in the environment in which they operate. This includes everything from unmanned aerial vehicles, home-based bombs, IT equipment for direct bodyguard protection.
The Crown Princess also visited Swedint and the Nordic Center for Gender in Military Operations. There she met students on one of the courses in progress and got through a simulator be part in a UN patrol in Mali.

From the website of the Armed Forces:
The Crown Princess's insight
During the late spring and summer, Crown Princess Victoria has visited the Armed Forces on several occasions. The purpose has been to get a better insight and understanding of the force's activities.
During the visits, the Crown Princess has met representatives of various parts of the authority, mainly at the headquarters. She has, among other things, been given the opportunity to deepen her knowledge in everything from the Armed Force's strategic direction and the work of defense planning through Must, Military Intelligence and Security Services, to gain insights into efforts and cyber security.
The photos at the article are HQs.

Svensk Damtidning had now on this week's issue an article about Victoria at the Ocean Conference in the UN on 8-9th June. Their reporter met Victoria briefly. Victoria said that she has always been interested in the environmental issues and she has met the right persons who have inspired her. And she has understood how serious the situation really is. Victoria said also that they talk a lot of these issues at home at the dinner table. SD's reporter asked from Victoria if she uses those yellow taxis in New York. Yes, that has happened, Victoria laughed. Victoria joked also that someone had asked about her lace outfit, if it was a fishnet.
Isabella Lövin, the co-president of the conference and Minister for International Development Cooperation and Climate, and Deputy Prime Minister, said to SD that it is very good that Victoria engages herself at the global agenda and attends at these important meetings.
Olof Skoog, the ambassador of Sweden to the United Nations, said that Victoria is doing a very good job and she has a presence that is unusual.
Victoria met also sir Richard Branson, who told her that he had met king Carl Gustaf. Branson said to SD that he has been with at these circles for 50 years and met a lot of royals. SD asked Branson how important it is that a member of a royal family attends at an event like the Ocean Conference. Branson said that of course it is important, not least with someone from Sweden who has such a well-known royal house. Sweden is a forerunner in this area, while the rest of the world is a single chaos, said Branson.
SD's reporter writes that as usual, Victoria wrote a lot of notes to her notebook when she listened to speeches at the events.

Victoria's interview, video
Crown princess Victoria wore the "kolt", which famous seamstress Lena Persson sewed before the Sami Parliament's opening in 2009, when she today participated in the opening of the Sami Parliament in Östersund.
Lena Persson's daughter with her closest says it is an honor that the Crown Princess chose to wear the kolt today.
- How happy I am to hear it. It is a very beautiful kolt that I am very proud to wear. It's a very nice gift, and I had the chance to meet the amazing seamstress who made it, says the Crown Princess.
How is it to be here today?
- It's very strong to be here. We have heard many strong speeches and nice yoiks. I have really enjoyed it.
Earlier, the court had announced that no one from the royal house could attend the opening ceremony. But last week, new message came from the court.
- We had the opportunity to look at the program and sometimes there are opportunities for a change, and I'm very happy that we could come here. It was a few years ago, it's fun to be here.
Crown Princess Victoria says it's important for her to strengthen the Sami.
- Whatsoever to talk about the rich country we have. What we have to offer and it constitutes our country and there, the Samis are very important and big part with their culture and all they contribute, the Crown Princess concludes.

There was a long sitting in the Mid Sweden University in Östersund when Crown Princess Victoria attended the opening of the Sami Parliament. From 10 o'clock to just after 13 - without a break.
Almost as long Matilda, 3, waited outside. Her father has been elected to the Sami Parliament. But Matilda's focus wasn't at congratulating her father, but to meet Crown Princess Victoria.
- How nice you look! We have almost identical belts, Victoria said when she met Matilda outside the doors.
Victoria asked a lot of questions from little Matilda who didn't show any shyness at all - but told about the companions in preschool and how it is to turn years.
On Friday Matilda is four years old.
- Oh! A whole year more! Do you know what, I have a girl who is five years old, said Victoria and showed the number of years with her fingers.
- Her name is Estelle. You know what? I'll tell Estelle that I met you. That I met an awesome girl called Matilda and that she will turn four years on Friday.
Before Victoria went to a quick lunch, Matilda and Grandma Sigrid asked if people could come and visit at the Crown Princess family home at Haga Palace.
- Yes! You can come and visit there, said Victoria with a smile.

Pardon my ignorance, who is the black (?)lady accompanying CP Victoria. I was under the impression that the Sami people were not immigrants but native Swedes.
