The queen's speech, she said among other things:
"Last September, 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by world leaders at the United Nations. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. These goals and targets are the core of Agenda 2030. They represent a commitment by all nations to work together to end poverty, build peace and secure a life of dignity and a healthy planet for all. Many of the targets focus on ending violence against children, as well as the use of children in labour and combat.
I am very proud that my daughter, Crown Princess Victoria, has been appointed by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as one of sixteen Advocates to promote these Global Goals. As an Advocate she is expected to promote the messages and encourage partnerships with governments, the private sector and civil society for achieving the Global Goals."

Expressen tells about the king's two hour visit at Söndrumsskolan
- It's been really nice, very interesting. We are of course proud that he chose to come to our school, says Maria Rüter, principal at the school.
She says that the King first attended a history lesson before a meeting with the school's special education teacher.
- There he saw how we work with something called "bravkod" for dyslexics. And he is also a bit interested about that, she continues.
King then proceeded to the Workshop where he received a gift, in the form of a wooden portrait by himself. The visit ended then NO-room where students in sixth and ninth grade showed how they work with programming.
Maria Rüter explains that students at the school looked forward to the visit.
- We received a lot of praise. He thought it was calm and collected, and all the students were exemplary. It was fun, she says.

The king delivered today H.M. The King's Medals and the Litteris et Arbus Medals. Queen Silvia attended at the event too.
H.M. The King's Medals got among others the king's relative Dagmar von Arbin, the director of the economy at the court Jan Lindman and the king's solicitor Axel Calissendorff. One of the receivers of the Litteris et Arbus medal was court singer Elin Rombo, who sang at Oscar's and Estelle's christenings.

Johan T Lindwall interviewed queen Silvia, who was very glad to have met the children.
- Yes, there were amazing meetings. See the joy found in these children is incredible. I just want to embrace all. I'm just happy every time I get to be at these meetings and the incredible spontaneity which is in them, queen Silvia said.
Nine-year old Emil gave the queen a drawing.
- I was the one on the front and a castle, the Queen laughed. And a tiara on my head.
- When little Emil had sat down again, he remembered that he had forgotten to show me what was on the back. It was a really nice drawing of the king. It was incredibly charming, the queen laughed.

Queen Silvia and king Carl Gustaf go to Germany to give Sweden PR-boost. The royal couple will be the days before crown princess Victoria's birthday in Aachen. They will visit and inaugurate the world's largest equestrian competition, Chio.
This year Sweden and Swedish Equestrian Federation are an official partner country of Chio and therefore the royal couple puts a little extra shine to the competition.
The Queen has also received the honor of the inaugural address:
- Yes, this is something that the royal couple prioritizes and the queen will give the opening speech. The Queen and the King are in Germany from Monday until Wednesday, Thorgren says.
So they make it home to the Crown Princess's birthday?
- Yes, they will be in the official celebrations, says Thorgren.
The king and queen get company in Germany. Måns Zelmerlöw will perform at the opening ceremony. A big favorite of the entire royal family.
