While I agree that it odd that Daniel hasn't been doing any engagements.

With that said, I do think its a bit unfair to compare him to people (i.e. a member of any Royal family) who have been doing this all of their lives (a 60 to 5 year time period).

It would be fair (IMO) to compare his workload to that of Queen Silvia when she first joined the SRF, or any of the new CP (Mary, Letizia, Maxima, etc.). Right now we are talking an apples to oranges comparison.

Sorry, how could I restrict myself to those who are supposed to be the 'main players'.
Prince Carl Philip: 3
Princess Madeleine: 11 (in the US, for the World Childhood Foundation)

True. I hope that at least her calendar is going to full up somewhat.

Since January 1, incompetent Nina Eldh is fortunately gone; Bertil Ternert is the new Chief of the Bernadotte press and information department and will hopefully improve matters.

Absolutely. Queen Silvia had her first solo engagement less than two months after the wedding (and has never stopped since, I'd say).
Not a single one of the current Crown Princesses had such a long time period in-between wedding and first public engagement as Prince Daniel has now.
Even Letizia stepped in for a solo engagement when her husband couldn’t attend.

Boris...thanks for the info for Queen Silvia and her first engagement.

Like I said in my previous post, I too find it odd that Daniels calendar has been empty BUT I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt. My reasons are many: for all we know its the SRF that is not giving him any single engagements, and they think its bests that he does work with Victoria and it present her engagements are better done solo, he has been sick and although he has done some social engagements in the interim we don't know the specifics regarding his health (he could have been well to attend these events and not so well to others). And finally, I think the tours that tours that he and Victoria did were plentiful once they returned to Sweden, and its possible that it was a big much. Its a big change.

So I am going to give hm the benefit of the doubt until April.

Daniel has in fact done one solo visit - it obviously did not get much notice.

I, too, have wondered what has happened. Was the court upset at his Christmas speech in Ockelbo?


Prince Daniel visits Swedish Trade Council - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]

Yes, he made one visit to the office of The Swedish Trade Council, and had a picture taken for the official website.
This was announced after it had taken place and didn't involve any public - that's why I'd hesitate to call it a public solo engagement.
His performance at the wedding as well as during the trips with his wife last year should have proved that he'd be able to handle royal work in public pretty well, which only makes the current situation more puzzling, IMO.

The calendar is quite strange to me... There are quite a few upcoming events that Victoria will attend alone. I really wonder why Daniel is scheduled to join his wife on such events.
For example the 100th anniversary celebrations of the Society of Ölanders which will be attended by Victoria alone... the next day the King and Queen will attend an event related to this occasion. So I wonder why Daniel doesn't attend the event together with Victoria.

No. The Swedish people are more curious about Victorias biology than why Daniel dont do any apperances.

Carl-Philip and Madeleine get more critisism about their lack of apperances nowdays.

Since Daniel likes to ski there is the question of why they choosed the king and queen to be present at Holmenkollen on March 5th and 6th for the world championships of cross-country skiing instead of the king and Daniel/Victoria and Daniel/Carl-Philip and Daniel.

I am woundering if the prince school in fact isnt really the basic universities in political science and history(Statsvetenskap A och Historia A) and that Daniel actually beeing touterd like a private student.

People should not forget that he is a transplant patient who may die within the next 3 years as 10% of kidney transplant patients actually do according to surgery.com's morbidity/mortality statistics. So please, accept that he is willing but may not always be able...

I was told by a cousin who is as a surgeon specialized in kidney transplant and treatments that due to the fact that the kidneys and their environment are responsible for regulating a lot of hormones, especially those dealing with stress, it is very important to be careful for the first years after the transplant. Only than that part of the medication can be reduced which as a side effect influences the sperm quality....

If this is so, then I guess the media knows about it but keeps quiet and in my opinion we should do so as well.

Everything is possible. But why would they keep it secret then? Isn't it easier to say that he's taking university courses.

I've been wondering about this too.
But seriously speaking, Daniel is a sickly type of person and there is a possibility that he could be ill.

Fortunately, Daniel is not sick at the moment.
At least he wasn’t one week ago, as he and his wife found the time to attend the big 50th birthday party of Kenneth Bengtsson, a CEO of the large Swedish supermarket chain ICA.
Apparently, health reasons or the risk of exposure to larger crowds can currently be ruled out as the cause behind his empty calendar.

The court cannot wait to be criticized, they have to be pro-active. If they wait for some criticism to start in the press before they assign him something, they will look "passive-reactive" like he is only taking assignments because of the criticism. Royals are the ultimate public/civil servants; they have to manage public perceptions.

I hope this new PR person at the palace has a plan; it won't be long before the newspapers start asking the same questions we are.

Article about Daniel's now very filled calendar...

Prins Daniel ska snart ut och resa igen | Svensk Damtidning

(I like that Svenskdam has a translation option on their page - just click the British flag in the top right corner. Nice!)

I wonder if there would be any possibility of his meeting any members of the British royal family?

If it's the Swedish trade council he's visiting I'd say probably not unless he has other engagements. He hasn't met any British royals apart from Edward and Sophie I think and I'd imagine that The first time he does, Victoria should be there to introduce him?
