Victoria and Daniel met Hawking in Cambridge in 2016 when Hawking made a video to GEN-PEP.

It's really nice that, despite the fact the CP family are well known in Sweden due to their high positions in the line of succession, they can have family outings like this without having their photos released immediately afterwards.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia met last Tuesday 105-year-old Dagny Carlsson, "Sweden's oldest blogger".
Dagny Carlsson was interviewed in Svensk Damtidning some weeks ago.
She was asked:
Whom in the royal family would you rather take with you to a desert island?
- Then I would surely take Victoria.
Why?
- Because she is modest and a very sympathetic person. She adjusts to the circumstances surprisingly well.

Victoria, Daniel and the children were seen today, Victoria and Daniel at a photo
Had a coffee break an old disused school in the middle of the forest (really!) today. It was only us, our friends and this super-nice couple with their cute children.

The story behind of this photo from last Friday - and another photo of Victoria and Daniel:

Victoria and Daniel were on Easter excursion when the sudden meeting took place.
Stoppa pressarna could yesterday report about a mysterious photo of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, which spread in Instagram.
In the photograph, Victoria and Daniel posed with two then unknown girls and the only clues that were given were that the photo was taken during Easter weekend and in a disused older school.
Stoppa pressarna began to dig - and now we can tell the background of the mysterious Easter photo.
The photographer is Maud Meijer, 53, and the women standing next to Victoria and Daniel are her friend Cicilia Segerstierna, 46, with daughter Edit Domstad, 11.
Everything began as an annual art excursion during Good Friday. But Easter weekend became so much more for Maud and her son Jonathan Meijer-Bergius, 20, from Gävle.
When the restaurant they were going to visit was closed, the company followed instead a sign for an art exhibition that led to a café in a 19th-century school in the woods. There they suddenly met crown princess Victoria and her family who sat at a table in the old handicraft room.
When Stoppa pressarna called Maud and Jonathan Meijer, they tell about the surprising meeting with the Crown Princess family.
- We were completely flabbergasted, because it was completely unexpected. I was completely starstrucked and almost started shaking, says Jonathan.
Maud and Jonathan are both royal fans and therefore the meeting became extraordinary. Through genealogy, they have found out that they are related to both the Scottish queen Maria Stuart and the Swedish royal house.
Maud therefore encouraged herself and greeted the Crown Princess.
- That mother dared I did not understand, but she said "I have to greet the family", says Jonathan.
It was as nice as a successful meeting, and the Gävle gang praise Victoria and Daniel.
- They are truly amazing people and an incredibly good example for Sweden, says Maud.
The royals posed happily for a photo before leaving the café with their Säpo guards.
- Surreal and incredible, said Maud, telling that the meeting with Victoria and Daniel will be a memory for life.
Victorias oväntade träff med okända släkten _ Stoppa Pressarna

And Cicilia Segerstierna has commented the meeting to Expressen, there is also a photo of the café at old handicraft room where they met Victoria and Daniel:
Cicilia Segerstierna also got flabbergasted over the meeting with the royals, but still dared to joke with Victoria.
- I told her that this meeting is as big for Maud as when she met Bon Jovi. Then Victoria began to laugh and did a victory dance. But the fun is that Maud has never met Bon Jovi, she says.
She explains further that the meeting with the royals made a big impression on her, she now calls herself as a royalist.
- They were so incredibly nice both of them, so down to earth and felt like ordinary people. Both Victoria and Daniel took care that they shooked hands also with my daughter. I think I've been saved, says Cicilia Segerstierna.

A few days ago 31-year old swedish Pernilla Lindberg from Bollnäs Golf Club took her first major win at ANA Inspiration Golf Tournament.

The swedish media tells that Daniel called to Pernilla to congratulate her:

After Pernilla had won, her mother told her, that an exciting phone call awaited Pernilla when she had finished photography and interviews.
A call from Prince Daniel.
- Oh! I'm looking forward to it. It's cool. I know he is a golf fan and has connection to Bollnäs, says Pernilla Lindberg.
Prince Daniel was born in Ockelbo and now has a summer house two kilometers from the golf club in Bollnäs.
Pernilla Lindberg uppringd av Prins Daniel efter majortiteln _ Aftonbladet

After the major win, Pernilla got tribute from Annika Sörenstam and large parts of the golfing world.
But there was also a telephone conversation from the Swedish royal house - golf enthusiast Prince Daniel called up.
How was it to get such a call?
- It was fun. It was a relaxed conversation and he was well-prepared, says Pernilla Lindberg to SvenskGolf.se.
Will it be a two-ball home at Bollnäs GK this summer?
- We said that we may see each other sometime in the future, but did not decide a start time together ...
Prince Daniel has Bro Hof Slott GC as home course but is also a honorary member of the PGA Sweden National.

Victoria and Daniel were yesterday evening at Dramaten (Royal Dramatic Theatre) to see Påklädaren (The Dresser by Ronald Harwood), where among others beloved 83-year old actor and singer Sven-Bertil Taube performs.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BhKX1C8H...ik_kristensen_

Sven-Bertil Taube and Krister Henriksson together on stage for the first time in a play about love and power struggle, comedy and darkness, behind the scenes. Then, a long time ago.
One evening in the 1940s, during Germany's bombings of England, the aging actor Sir John and his dresser prepare for the performance of King Lear. Around them they have a whole ensemble that is completely dependent on the great actor going up to stage and acting.
But Sir John approaches a breakdown and perceives the war's air alarms and bombings as a personal violation. He refuses to play! The only one who can pick him up on stage is his dresser.
Påklädaren - Dramaten

Gala magazine contacted Erik Kristensen (producer at Dramaten), who published the photo of Victoria and Daniel with the Påklädaren cast.
How fun that the Crown Princess couple visited you at Dramaten. Was it a planned visit for a long time by Crown Prince Victoria and Prince Daniel?
- No, we were informed about their private visit yesterday morning.
Was it the Crown Princess couple who wanted to see the play and come backstage or was it an invitation from Dramaten?
- It was at their own request - a private visit. Dramaten was told only the same day that they would use the royal box and I was told just before the show started that they would like to meet the actors right after the performance.
- I met the Crown Princess couple at the main entrance (not the royal entrance that is used when the royal box is to be visited) and followed the couple to their royal box by the usual staircase.
Did the actors know they would come too or was it a surprise?
- They were told an hour before the show began because the visit was of a private nature.
Did the crown princess couple sit at the royal box?
- Yes, just the two. Victoria and Daniel nodded and greeted the audience from the box.
How was the mood backstage and what questions were asked from both sides?
- The Crown Princess couple was overwhelmingly positive about the performance and were very touched about the great interaction and the game on stage especially between Sven-Bertil Taube and Krister Henriksson and Lena Endre, but also of the entire ensemble.
Did they stay long?
- They stayed at backstage for 45 minutes. Were among the last who left.
Did the Crown Princess couple say what they liked about the "Dresser"?
- They were very delighted. Were noticeably touched by the warmth and love which radiated from the stage.

More about the photos taken at the café at an old school on Good Friday:

Svensk Damtidning tells that Ewa and Olle Westling and Daniel's sister Anna were also with Victoria, Daniel and the children at the trip to old school in southern Norrland. Cicilia Segerstierna said to SD:
- How happy and lovely people they are! They felt so genuine and close-knit as a family. It was like meeting old friends.
Cicilia, who is from Gävle, reports that she quickly recognized Daniel's sister Anna who bought her house in 2010.
How Victoria and Daniel were as parents?
- Just like ordinary parents. And Estelle and Oscar ran around like children usually do.
When the Crown Princess family got up to go Victoria had said with a warm tone:
- Now we have to go, Estelle.
- She was just like an ordinary mother wearing jeans and poncho, says Cicilia.
While Estelle accompanied Victoria in the hall, Daniel stayed in the schoolroom to clear away things from their table. Then Cicilia and Edit asked if they could take a photo with the royals.
- As for me, it's fine but I have to ask Victoria, Daniel answered, and went away to pick her up.

Johan T Lindwall, the editor-in-chief of Svensk Damtidning, has hired author and historian Herman Lindqvist as SD's new columnist.
At his first column Lindqvist writes about his meetings with Victoria.

For three years I was lucky to be a private teacher for Crown Princess Victoria in history.
I was at an event at the Royal Palace, when Victoria came to me and asked if I could come and tell her about history. She reminded that it was hard for her to read books, but she would listen gladly.
We sat in a small salon at the Palace. A tray of tea was brought in. Before I reacted, she had poured tea into our cups. I told our story from the beginning, and ended the last year with all the rulers, their childhood, education, marriages and difficulties. Victoria was extremely interested. She made a lot of notes and next time she could ask questions about something she wanted to know more about. The lessons should have lasted an hour, but usually became much longer, because we could come through the present, media, trips she would do.
My teaching ended when she came to Paris. There I guided her in Napoleon and empress Joséphine's Malmaison, outside of Paris. An hour was reserved for the visit. She stayed for over two. She walked equally strictly through each showcase and every room, as her own great-grandfather Gustaf VI Adolf, used to inspect exhibitions.
I never forget how excited she was at this first meeting with her own ancestress empress Joséphine. There among the empress's clothes and belongings, it came clear to Victoria that she was related to the empress. Victoria's grandfather's grandfather's grandmother was married to Oscar I and was named Josefina of Leuchtenberg. She was the grandchild of Napoleon's empress.
In the evening, the history course ended with champagne at my place and then with oysters and champagne at La Coupole.
One day I will never forget.

Expressen's royal commentator Karin Lennmor at her chronicle today:
The royal family is not unintelligent - on the contrary

I often get questions that suggest that the royal family would be a bit shallow, almost unintelligent.
Nothing could be more wrong.
The only time I reacted was in 2011 when Tomas Tranströmer received the Nobel Prize in Literature and at a press conference I realized that the king had no idea who this literary giant was.
But otherwise. Think of our crown princess! I can no doubt say she is the future regent in Europe who has the broadest education! Oh my, what a cv!
It's doubtful if there is any Swedish royal in history who has that competence.
I looked in her education and was quite impressed. After Victoria graduated 1996, she wanted to train languages. First, it became French in Angers. And then she went to USA, to Yale University and plugged political science and history. She practiced also in the UN and the Swedish Embassy in Washington.
Victoria has read conflict resolution and peace enforcement at Uppsala University. In 2009 she gratuated with Bachelor of Arts degree. What is missing in the Crown Princess's exams is the so-called C-essay. But Victoria never wrote her C-essay just because her ratings as crown princess about peacekeeping operations were considered too sensitive. Instead, she had in spoken words discussion with her teacher.
She has practiced at the Swedish government, at the parliament, at Sida when Sweden was chairman of the EU. She practiced at the Swedish Embassy in China in a month of 2005, and also did longer study visits to the Swedish Trade Council in Paris and Berlin.
Victoria has basic soldier education and has completed courses at the Defense University. And in 2006 she underwent diplomatic programs.
I have certainly missed something, such as all trips she has done abroad. This is what is called the Queen School.
Our Crown Princess has also assumed another role nowadays. She has become an "influencer"!
She is engaged in environmental issues - and it is quite politically correct because we all agree that such issues are very important. Similarly, it is with clean water. Or health care.
Many are interested in what design Victoria wears on her dresses. Often, it is H&M or famous Swedish designers like Camilla Thulin or Ida Sjöstedt. Impact, of course, but also great advertising for our Swedish fashion industry, especially on foreign visits.
And it's no coincidence that Victoria is driving a Volvo, both privately and officially?
Intelligence and education are of course number One. But it's hardly wrong, that Victoria at the same time combines her cleverness with doing fine advertising for Sweden, having self-understanding and being socially super-competent.
I'm really glad we have such a future regent.

An acquaintance of mine who's met both couples in an official capacity several times says that Victoria is one of the most intelligent persons he's ever met. He also said that neither of her parents are particularly smart although I heard Barbro Hultman, a former employee of the court and longtime royal journalist, say in a lecture that the King is a very cultured man with a deep knowledge about both current affairs and classical culture.
Regarding Thomas Tranströmer I doubt that 1 in 10 Swedes would recognise the name if asked about it.

Susanne "Tussen" Formgren from Ockelbo, former two-time world champion in power-lifting and also called the strongest woman in Sweden, died today in the age of 55. She and Daniel trained together at the gym in Ockelbo. Tussen said always in interviews that Daniel was very friendly and outgoing.
I have always loved this photo of Daniel with Tussen Formgren, which is in Aftonbladet's article.
Susanne ”Tussen” Formgren, Sveriges starkaste kvinna , död _ Aftonbladet

And I remember how Tussen was dressed as Pippi Longstocking when Victoria and Daniel made an official visit to Ockelbo in May 2011.
Here is Tussen Formgren with Victoria and Daniel in Ockelbo at the evening party.
https://bakomkulisserna.svenskdam.se...lvictoria4.jpg

Prince Daniel mourns his friend and training mate. Ockelbo profile Susanne "Tussen" Formgren passed away yesterday, only 55 years old.
Daniel and "Tussen" got to know each other long before Daniel became known as Victoria's boyfriend. They trained together at Ockelbo Atletklubb and "Tussen" once told Daniel used to sweep in, easygoing and happy: "He had humor and he joked on how he would be stronger than me."
But against "Tussen", who was Sweden's strongest woman and world champion at powerlifting, he had no chance of course. Lifting Daniel was a simple match.
- He was with me directly. It was a fun thing and we laughed, she told.
"Tussen" had two World Cup gold and 17 Swedish Champion titles in strength and lifting celebrities was her specialty.
- I have lifted Berghagen, Lassgård, Carola, Sven Tumba, Agneta Sjödin ... how many celebrities have I lifted, she told Gefle Dagblad in 2012.
But now the last point is set and in Ockelbo - and at Haga Palace - the sorrow is great.
"Tussen" Formgren became also a nice friend to Crown Princess Victoria.

Daniel is in USA, he was yesterday at a NHL icehockey match between Tampa Bay Lightning and New Jersey Devils in Tampa. Daniel's friend Peter "Foppa" Forsberg was also there, and swedish golfer Henrik Stenson.

What the prince of Sweden was doing at Lightning-Devils Game 2
If Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman seemed a bit nervous during Saturday's playoff game against New Jersey, it was only because he knew he was playing in the presence of royalty from his native Sweden.
Prince Daniel of Sweden was in attendance at Amalie Arena, and took time after the game to meet with the Lightning's two Swedish-born players — Hedman and fellow defenseman Anton Stralman.
"I was a little bit nervous before the game," Hedman said after Tampa Bay's 5-3 win to take a 2-0 lead in the opening round of the playoffs. "It's obviously all fun. He's a great guy, very humble. It was an honor to meet him again."
Hedman and Stralman had met Prince Daniel before — he hosted the Swedish national team last year after their win in the World Championships in Cologne, Germany.
"We got invited to the castle and I saw him and a few other royalties," Hedman said. "It was good to see him here. It was phenomenal."
Prince Daniel wasn't the only Swedish celebrity presence at the Lightning game. Golfer Henrik Stenson watched the game with his children and met the players after the game, as did former NHL star and Hockey Hall of Famer Peter Forsberg.

Was a pretty cool scene postgame with @heds77 and Anton Stralman hanging with Sweden’s Prince Daniel + hockey royalty, Hall of Famer Peter Forsberg. They were at #TBLightning #NJDevils game.

At this second photo, it seems that Daniel's friends Håkan Lundstedt and Patrik Vrbanc were also with Daniel and Foppa in USA.
