As a regent, Victoria came together with Daniel to visit the place where the attack happened, it was shown live. They arrived just before eleven o'clock. Victoria laid flowers to the place.

Crown princess Victoria and Prince Daniel were also at the site and, according to Aftonbladet the crown princess burst into tears as she mourned the victims.
- The society has shown a tremendous force. The swedish society is based on a huge trust, a community, a cohesion. We're going to take us out stronger from this, crown princess Victoria said to Aftonbladet.
On the question of how we move forward, she replies:
- Together.

It is sad to see that Victoria bursted into tears. It was a moving and heartibreaking situation.

Your Royal Highness!

I have with great sadness received the news of the terror attack in Stockholm in the afternoon, which resulted in several deaths and injuries.

Once again we are brutally reminded of the importance of protecting our core democratic values.

On behalf of myself, the Royal Family and the Norwegian people, I send my deepest condolences and I ask Your Royal Highness to pass on my sympathy to the bereaved and relatives, and to all the Swedish people.

Invitation to the press
In the afternoon the king returns to Sweden. The king goes directly to the Royal Palace, together with the Crown Princess couple and Prince couple, to get information about the latest developments.
The king makes a brief statement at 17:00. The king will not give any further comments except the statement.

It is easy to see from the videos how moved Victoria was in the morning.

Very poignant to have Victoria to visit the site, perhaps give reassurince that she is human too, and can have emotions.

Peter Wolodarski, the editor-in-chief of Dagens Nyheter, at his chronicle:
Crown Princess Victoria was asked on Saturday how Sweden will move on. "Together", she said shortly and expressed the feelings of many Swedes.
It happened here. Stockholm and Sweden will rise again.

Both TV4play and SVTplay have had a live broadcast the whole day. I think they will show the king's statement.

https://www.svtplay.se/video/1319986...rala-stockholm

The king has now arrived to the Royal Palace, he was a little late and his statement may also come later than 17.00, we will see.

You can see how moved both Victieua and Daniek were

I am glad they aren't simply making statements but they made an appearance. The royal family represent the people. It's important they are seen and not simply heard by people in these scary times.

The king gives his statement now.

The director of the press department, Margareta Thorgren, has given her orders to the press.

Coincidentally, Victoria was serving as regent when the attack happened. In a way, it was a test then of her performance as future Head of State.

In the UK, her reaction (i.e bursting into tears) would probably be considered inappropriate for a sovereign in a moment of crisis, but I guess the Swedes see it differently perhaps.

I can't imagine The Queen, The Prince of Wales or The Duke of Cambridge bursting into tears during a crisis. That's a good thing.

Sometimes the British 'stiff upper lip' is welcomed.

Why you should abuse a terror attack with several deaths to further your own agenda and preconceptions is something puzzling. It is in very bad taste.
