The Expressen article I posted with the interview says:

During the trip in Sweden television team from eNCA met even Swedish experts, school staff and parents to talk about Swedish children's health.
From the website of eNCA Channel - South African journalist Siphamandla Goge met also dr Claude Marcus, one of Sweden’s leading health experts (professor at Karolinska Institutet and research supervisor at the Swedish National Childhood Obesity Centre at Karolinska University Hospital).
Tackling child obesity in Sweden
According to the doctors, risks associated with obesity and being overweight include getting diseases such as the hardening of the arteries, diabetes, joint problems and osteoporosis.
This is a concern for the Swedish royal family.
Crown Princess Victoria was appointed by the United Nations as one of sixteen advocates to promote the Sustainable Development Goals. Together with her husband, Prince Daniel, she is an advocate for healthy lifestyle and says more urgent steps are needed to prevent a global crisis of obesity.
In an exclusive interview with eNCA, the Crown Princess registered concerns about the emerging negative trend
Claude Marcus has been a member of the Board of the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation, which promotes good health among children and youths in Sweden.
When Daniel founded En Frisk Generation (Healthy Generation) Foundation, he asked some help from Claude Marcus. Marcus is also a board member at En Frisk Generation. The aim of En Frisk Generation is to establish a long-term, viable way of influencing public health by encouraging and motivating entire families from an early age to adopt lifestyles which are healthier and more fun.
Perhaps journalist Goge from South Africa contacted Claude Marcus first for an interview, and Marcus told that Victoria and Daniel are very involved in matters concerning children's health.
The eNCA article says that Marcus was interviewed ahead of a conference, there was a conference about children's obesity where Marcus spoke on 8th June, so perhaps it was done just before that.
