The Queen attends today at the board meeting of the World Childhood Foundation at the Royal Palace. Madeleine isn't listed to attend. If she is still in Sweden, maybe she will attend too.

Pressrelease Her Majesty Queen Silvia and Her Royal Highness Princess Madeleine of Sweden to Visit Washington, D.C. on behalf of World Childhood Foundation - Childhood USA

Madeleine cancels her attending at the Childhood events. Leonore has cold, tells Ulrika Näsholm from the court press department.
The plan was that the princess, who works as a project manager at Childhood's American office, would go to the concert. Now it's the visit, as well as her attendance at the Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, cancelled
The reason is that Leonore has got a heavy summer cold.
- That's it. So it is with babies sometimes, they get sick and need to be taken care of, says Näsholm.
Is Leonore now resting with her ​​mother in New York?
- I have no information on where exactly they are, says Näsholm.
The Queen, however, will be in Washington on Wednesday and Thursday as planned and alone carrying out official missions that she initially was sharing with her daughter.

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department, has commented to Aftonbladet:
- Princess Leonore has got a severe cold.
Tomorrow there is a big charity concert for Childhood Foundation in Washington, including house star Tiesto. Princess Madeleine would have participated in the role of project manager - along with princess Leonore and grandmother Queen Silvia.
Now the princess must cancel her trip. The decision was taken just hours before the flight would left from Sweden, according to Thorgren.
- It was determined today. They had packed and were ready to go. But the princess took the decision that it was not appropriate to carry out such a long flight with a sick little baby. The Princess is very sad that she can not attend. Meanwhile, it is something that happens, Princess Leonore is only four months old and has been through a lot lately.
Queen Silvia will however participate as planned. Tomorrow, she holds a speech during a lunch seminar in Washington.
The meeting would have been Princess Madeleine's first official mission since she became a mother. But now there will be no more U.S. trips for awhile.
- The whole family will spend a lot of time in Solliden in Öland in conjunction with the Crown Princess's birthday on July 14, says Thorgren.

Queen Silvia said to Expressen that it is really a pity that Madeleine had to cancel her attendance. Actually, Madeleine should have attended on the important dance party tomorrow (Thursday) for Childhood, explained Silvia.
- But it is when you're young mother with little baby.
The queen will go in her place?
- No no, I have other things to do ...
There will be no "dancing queen" in Washington in the evening?
- No, I have other things to do (laughs).
"Dance Party" is the actual ending of Childhood programs in the U.S. capital. On Thursday evening, playing a series of stellar DJs with Dutch Tiësto at the head in downtown Washington. The queen attends on Thursday at a seminar at the Swedish Embassy.

Queen Silvia on Thursday to Expressen about Leonore:
- That's how it is. It's about a young child, and a worried mother. And grandmother too. Of course, then you have to consider the small child.
She continues to regret that Madeleine had to cancel her trip.
- It is a shame! Princess Madeleine has really been very active in this arrangement. She'd love to come here. But if you have responsibilities you have them.
The queen told already on Wednesday that she wasn't going to attend at the ThankYou Festival.
- I'm going home instead. I'll take a holiday. I very much look forward to seeing the family now.
Will you go straight to Öland?
- Well, we will be traveling a bit more first.
You long o see Madeleine and Leonore?
- Yes, I look very much forward to.
Sweden's ambassador Björn Lyrvall about the Queen in Washington:
- The Queen is very talented and sought-after speaker. It was seen in the Senate yesterday. It was dead silent when the queen spoke. And big applause afterwards.
Silvia seems very pleased with the reception that Childhood got during her days in Washington.
- Yesterday I met with many senators, and listened to what they had to say. There have been many interesting meetings. I myself speak mostly about "child protection". I find that many organizations here do a fantastic job. "But what?", You ask yourself. What happens after you have saved the kids survive? This is where our work with Childhood comes into the picture.
Once signed, put away the tape recorder and Expressen photographer Axel Oberg holds out a microphone makes the Queen a surprised my.
- Is there TV on Expressen also? I'm learning it. Expressen.se, says Silvia interested.
