King Carl Gustaf said at his speech at the Stockholm Water Prize ceremony among other things:

This year’s laureate, professor Stephen McCaffrey has served as counsel in many interstate disputes over shared water resources. He has shown that through diplomacy and effective law making, water can be shared peacefully – becoming a catalyst for cooperation, rather than conflict.
This year’s theme for World Water Week is called “Water and waste: reduce and reuse”.
In Sweden, we use more than 150 litres of fresh water per person and day. This is an enormous luxury compared to other parts of the world; or an incredible waste, depending on how you look at it.

For the last 21 years, my daughter, Crown Princess Victoria, has been Patron of the Stockholm Junior Water Prize. This is a most important prize, celebrating ambition and creative thinking among the next generation of leaders and scientists.

It's interesting the Victoria delivers the Stockholm Water Prize this year, on behalf of the king. Perhaps the king has another event to attend.

People quote Victoria's speech at Twitter
"HRH Crown Princess Victoria at Stockholm Water Prize Ceremony: ”The price of water is low, the costs of misuse is high”. Very true!"
https://twitter.com/JKuylenstierna/s...34983884673025
"Crown Princess Victoria is Sweden says #SDG6 on clean #water and #sanitation is a prerequisite for the achievement of the rest of SDGs"
https://twitter.com/PilarAvello/stat...35245361754112
"“A sustainable future is fueled by clean water” -princess victoria"
https://twitter.com/jlsaboASU/status...34060957376512

Victoria said at her very good speech among other things:
Tonight I have presented the prize on behalf of my father, His Majesty the King. To his regret, he was not able to attend this evening. He has asked me to convey his best wishes to all of you and his warmest congratulations to this year’s laureates, Professor Bruce Rittman and Professor Mark van Loosdrecht.
For as long as I can remember, my father has been deeply involved in issues related to the environment and nature. As a child, I learned from him to appreciate nature. But also, to recognize my own responsibility for taking care of it. Today, I try to pass on that love for nature to my own children.(...)
Access to clean water is an important goal in itself. But at the same time it is a prerequisite for the fulfilment of all the other goals. To put it simply: a sustainable future is fuelled by clean water.
And while the price of water is low, the costs related to misuse of water are enormous.
Ladies and gentlemen, the world is facing major water problems. Every ninety seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. By 2050, our oceans may contain more plastic than fish. And let there be no doubt: climate change will make existing water challenges even greater.
