The King and Crown Princess participated in WWF's annual meeting at Drottningholm Palace.
At the annual meeting attended also WWF ambassadors. Linda Berglund, Deputy Director of Swedish Forest & Species, spoke on the theme "It's soughing in the woods!" In her lecture, Linda Berglund said that increased pressure on the Swedish forest is seen through increasing demand for raw materials and renewable energy, other ecosystem services are gaining value and climate change.
At the end of the annual meeting, a panel discussion was held followed by a lunch.

Isn't these dinners an occasion where the female guests and the royals could have evening dresses as well as cocktail dresses? I seem to remember that one of the royal ladies usually wears a shorter dress, but perhaps I'm mixing things up here?

It is the Sweden dinner (Sverigemiddag) where the female guests can have evening dresses as well as cocktail dresses. Victoria wore this dress she has tonight at the Sweden dinner last September. Then both she and queen Silvia had evening dresses. All royal ladies had evening dresses also at the Sweden dinner in September 2016. In Sweden dinner 2015 Sofia had cocktail dress, queen Silvia and Victoria had evening dresses. In 2014 and 2013 Victoria had cocktail dress and queen Silvia evening dress. At Sweden dinners the men wear black tie.

At these official dinners (representationsmiddag) the dress code is always white tie and women wear evening dresses.
There is always one Sweden dinner in a year, and 2 or 3 official dinners.

On Friday king Carl Gustaf and Victoria visited Försvarets radioanstalt FRA (National Defence Radio Establishment) on Lovön in Ekerö.
Photo from court Instagram
"Today, the King and Crown Princess visited the Swedish National Defence Radio Establishment's head office on Lovön, outside of Stockholm, to inform themselves about the agency's activities. The King and Crown Princess received, among other things, contributions from FRA's employees on developments in the immediate area, how FRA works with issues related to international terrorism and how FRA contributes to the construction of a national cyber defense. FRA's Director General Dag Hartelius described the King and Crown Princess the development of the Authority and the challenges facing FRA in the coming years. Superintendent Charlotta Gustafsson also participated in the visit."

From the official dinner:
Magda Gad's conversation with the Crown Princess at the Palace

Magda Gad, Expressen's War Correspondent, was one of the guests at the Royal Couple's official dinner this week.
- It was a very solemn and stylish dinner at the Palace in beautiful surroundings with good food and exciting company, she says.
The guest list contained individuals from industry as well as politics and media and, on Thursday evening, Magda Gad received a private chat with both the king and the crown princess.
Talked about the fake murder of Ukrainian journalist
The king and Magda Gad talked about the fake murder of Russian journalist Arkadij Babtjenko when the king wondered what her theory of the whole was.
- He stated that he appreciates journalism that takes time, it is better that it goes slowly and gets right than it goes fast and gets wrong. The king also thought that if a journalist is doubtful about what actually happened then this should be said that it only gets more confidence if the report tells that it may be in one way but that it may also be in the other way and that what is correct, you do not know yet, Magda Gad says about the conversation with the king.
"The Crown Princess asked how people have it in the war"
At the same time, the Crown Princess asked questions about how the people in the middle of war live, and whom Magda Gad visits during her reports:
- The Crown Princess asked a lot about how the people are having it in the war, how the situation is in Syria today, how much land IS controls and how I prepare for my assignments. When I told about my friend Nejlikan in Raqqa and that she lost her barely two-year-old daughter in a bombing she became noticeably touched, said Magda Gad.
- Everyone had very many questions about my work, which is obviously appreciated. It is a receipt that I have reached it, she concludes.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, Victoria and Daniel attend this afternoon at the inauguration of the Tsunami memorial in the National City Park in Blockhusudden at Royal Djurgården in Stockholm. Also prime minister Stefan Löfven attends at the inauguration. Lea Porsager is the artist behind Gravitational Ripples which became the winning contributor in an international art contest on the design of the memorial.
The completion of memorial monument is now in a final stage. The work is still covered in a green cellulose cloth containing grass seeds and herbs. During the summer, the cloth will molder away, the grass grows and the work will become a green and flourishing place.

King Carl Gustaf said in his speech among other things:
"We carry our memories with us always wherever we go. Yet it can mean a lot to have a place to go to remember. (...) It feels good that the Royal Djurgården land can be used for this purpose. And I I'm honored to be here today with you. Dear friends! I hope this memorial monument will be a place for many to visit - an opportunity for reflection. A place for you. "
