Stones instead of pearls
Since Crown Princess Victoria wore one of her necklaces four years ago, the jewelry of Märta Larsson has been popular. The designer relies on handpicked stones from all over the world.
Four years ago, there was her "Victoria Moment". Suddenly, Märta Larsson's name was in many newspapers and magazines, especially in her home country Sweden. Her career, which had only lasted a few months then, then picked up so much speed that the jewelry designer, who was still pregnant at the time, barely followed the production of new necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings.
Meanwhile, Märta Larsson's son Äsom is three and a half years old. The demand for her jewelry has continued to grow, but now she gets along so well that she even had the time to create a collection of silk towels and kimonos. They are printed with stones, which Larsson used for her jewelry. Her first prêt-à-porter collection was presented at the Tuileries showroom in March at Paris Fashion Week.
The momentous "Victoria moment" - of course it had to do with the Swedish Crown Princess. Victoria came to official visit to Germany four years ago. First stop was Hamburg. There, according to tradition, she was welcomed by the city mayor, Olaf Scholz, to the top of the staircase in the Town hall, even though the Crown Princess was traveling on crutches after a ski accident. It was a gnawing for the press, which shone with headlines such as "Royal despite crutches!" And "delight with crutches".
Special mention was always the "chain in XL", which the future Swedish queen wore around her neck: black tourmaline, as big as walnuts. "That was my Victoria moment," says Märta Larsson.

From the Annual Report of Radiohjälpen

During the concert 3 547 656 SEK came in (it's a record).
The Crown Princess Victoria's Fund delivered money (4 255 622 SEK) to 141 activities in 2017.

Every year a film is made of Victoria's visits to one activity The Crown Princess Victoria's Fund supports. Victoria visited on 17th May Skota Hem, which organizes sailing for people with disabilities. The whole video of the visit will be shown on 29th June, and many times after that, and also at Victoria's birthday concert. But SVT has already now a short clip of the video:

Designer Maxjenny: "Victoria is best at promoting Swedish design"
Maxjenny Forslund grew up with a mother who was fashion designer and father who was a silversmith. Of this, was born a daughter who makes clothes beautiful as jewelery, something that even Crown Princess Victoria discovered.
Maxjenny loves strong colors and gets stuck on the street for her original clothes. Designer Maxjenny Forslund wants to give her customers a unique experience. Even Crown Princess Victoria has worn design of this Swede who lives in Copenhagen.
- I think the crown princess is topnotch and so good at promoting Swedish design. She is so stylish and seems to have a good self-esteem. Should I meet Victoria, I probably would completely mess myself up and become kicked out because I'm so spontaneous, she says with a laugh.
- In Victoria's position, she has eyes on her, it's fun she likes to wear Swedish design, designer Maxjenny Forslund says.

Vardaga updated this photo and story to their Facebook a couple of days ago.

When a person suffers from dementia, the relatives are also affected to a great extent. Thousands of questions arise, no simple answers are found. For Gunilla von Krusenstierna, whose sister lives with Alzheimer's disease, the Alzheimer Race, organized by Vardaga and the Alzheimer Foundation, was a nice experience and a help in the grief.
It was also an experience beyond the usual when she was stopped by a walking Crown princess who wondered what race was going on in Haga Park. Gunilla told about the Alzheimer Race and about her sister and they had a nice conversation about how to be a relative of a person with Alzheimer's. "My sister is very fond of the royal house and getting a picture with Princess Victoria and my personal greeting to her was very important", says Gunilla.

Alzheimer Race was in Haga Park on 26th May.

Svensk Damtidning has noticed that Daniel has a new watch. It comes from the new brand Carl Edmond, Daniel's friend Peter "Foppa" Forsberg is one of the owners of Carl Edmond.
Daniel's new watch is square with some vintage vibes and the model is called Granit White Deluxe. It costs 2100 SEK, about 200 euros.
The label Carl Edmond describes itself as a mix of Swedish minimalism and Swiss skill. It was launched last autumn by founder Ali Nouri together with swedish Hollywood Star Joel Kinnaman, and now "Foppa" has now chosen to invest and join as partner with his spouse Nicole Nordin.
Svensk Damtidning guesses that maybe Daniel has got the watch as a present? He and Foppa have been good friends for many years.

From finnish Iltalehti

Princess Victoria is 41 years old - 6 reasons why she is a model for every woman
Crown Princess Victoria is admired by Swedish women - no wonder. A gorgeous forty-year old who also laughs for herself.
Modern, relaxed, with dignity and direct in her opinions. Swedish women want to be like that. It is no wonder, therefore, that Crown Princess Victoria is a model for many women of her age. She represents everything that is important to a modern Swedish woman: equality, integrity and the ability to laugh for herself.
Today, the crown princess is 41 years old and super popular. We found out what makes Victoria so loved and admired, especially among women.
She dares to be open
Victoria was as a child an obligated big sister who cared for her little brother and sister when the parents were away. Victoria was trained for her future role as very young. The future queen succeeded in her studies both at school and later at university. Victoria seemed to be successful in everything she did. When Madeleine, known as a party princess, celebrated and made headlines, Victoria focused on responsibilities. The future queen was in headlines in her twenties when she became ill with eating disorder. Her illness was seen as an indication that the pressures had grown too hard. Later, she spoke of her illness openly and told that she had been given treatment therapy. The princess was thanked for bringing the subject up and showing an example that you must talk of the mental problems.
She laughs for herself
The years have made her more relaxed - at least in public. She is self-confident, radiant and laughs often. There are several video clips of the Crown Princess where she laughs heartily, especially when the formal part of the visit or event is over. Often, Victoria is amused of her own doing and saying.
She shows her feelings
The brilliant wedding revealed to everyone how in love and happy Victoria and Daniel really were. For many ordinary Swedes a common man becoming a prince was initially a shock, but eventually those who suspected had to admit: a couple was made to each other. It is partly due to Daniel that an another, softer side of the crown princess has been seen. In his wedding speech, Daniel revealed that Victoria had written a love letter to him every day when she was away on her long business trip. What a romantic!
She is a mother and she is having a career
In February 2012 Estelle was born and in 2016 little brother Oscar. Now she suffers from the same problem as most of us: how to get enough time to work and family.
- It's really difficult. Especially since my role as a crown princess and my job are important to me. I often feel myself split because I want to reach so many areas of life. Above all, I want to be a good mother and a role model, she said in an interview last summer.
Victoria is a role model for many also because she has admitted she suffers from her high demands. In Sweden, where women's stress and well-being have been spoken about a lot lately, the crown princess's transparency is considered important.
She participates
Victoria is active especially in equality and environmental issues. It is important for her to show an example, participate and get others involved. She loves nature and in 2016 she was named a UN Ambassador for Sustainable Development Goals. The princess has told her that her family recycles a lot and talk about the importance of her own choices to the environment. Victoria has described herself as an outdoor enthusiast, and the whole family is spending a lot of time in nature.
She has an impeccable sense of style
You can't talk about Victoria without mentioning her style. Even though the crown princess is not a fashion princess, her classical, trendy style is well copied. Victoria favors Swedish designers, recycles clothing and has been especially praised for the fact that she also favors clothes from cheap clothing chains.
