Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden receives the Honorary Award of the National German Sustainability Award 2015 for her outstanding commitment as a patron of more than 60 associations, in which they have long been engaged in a variety of ways with the challenges of sustainable development. A labor of love for them is the "World Childhood Foundation", which she founded in 1999, working internationally in more than 600 projects for needy young people.

The Swedish paper Expressen now quote Queen Silvia for coming up with a third explanation as to why Victoria didn't attend the event: Drottning Silvias vädjan till Sofia och kronprinsessan Victoria | Nyheter | Expressen

Queen Silvia has urged her daughters-in-law to be careful in regards to their pregnancies and not risk their child.

As such it was because it was too crowded, so Victoria opted to stay away in order not risk her child.

Now, I'm completely confused!

- I thought one of the cardinal rules regarding statements, is that you agree on what you want to say and then stick to it.
And if it happens the first statement is "wrong" and needs to be corrected, then you stick to the second statement.

I'm beginning to have a feeling that the main problem isn't the PR-department, but the SRF themselves.
Even the best PR-department in the world is useless if it's ignored.

ADDED: I've been told this old news, so you can ignore it and the mods can delete this as irrelevant as you see fit.

HRH Princess Madeleine, Inge Thulin, Anna Ryott and Geoff Gage.
Princess Madeleine has worked for Childhood at the office in Stockholm and Childhood's offices in the USA, she is also an honorary member of the Board of Childhood in the United States.
- We are very proud and happy to welcome Princess Madeleine, Inge Thulin, Anna Ryott and Geoff Gage to the World Childhood Foundation. Their knowledge and experience in their respective fields will strengthen Childhood further. I would also like to thank the two outgoing board members Richard Gage and Caroline Heinz-Youness for their contributions to the Board, which has been highly appreciated, says Kenneth Bengtsson, Chairman of the board of the World Childhood Foundation.

Lindwall's article in Expressen
- After Princess Madeleine moved back to Europe, she has shown more and more interest in Childhood and this was now a natural step, says Kenneth Bengtsson, Chairman of the Board of the organization.
Will the princess work on this full time?
- The Princess will in addition to her work at the board work with other things for Childhood such as getting money into the business. She will be able to do a good job from London, explains Kenneth Bengtsson.

I'm happy to see such welcomed news! Madeleine had said previously in the "Skavlan" interview that she wanted to focus on this while residing in Londom...

Today at the Uppsala University started an international conference "Human Trafficking in the 21st Century".
World Childhood Foundation was also represented at the conference. Honorary President H. M. Queen Silvia held a speech and Deputy Secretary General Britta Holmberg spoke entitled "Building resilience through holistic support to families at risk - prevention and community reintegration".

Parts from the queen's speech yesterday (the speech was in english), she told among other things why she founded World Childhood Foundation and what WCF does for victims of trafficking:
Last April I had the honour of attending a seminar in the Vatican as one of His Holiness Pope Francis’ priorities is to combat human trafficking and in particular how to safeguard the rights of child victims of trafficking.
In his message on The World Day of Peace His Holiness said regarding trafficking: "We ought to recognize that we are facing a global phenomenon which exceeds the competence of any community or country. In order to eliminate it, we need a mobilization comparable in size to that of the phenomenon itself."
One of the reasons why I founded World Childhood Foundation 17 years ago was to prevent trafficking through support to vulnerable families and children. Childhood works to stop abuse and exploitation of children. Our work concentrates on supporting children most at risk – children on the street; children in vulnerable families; children in institutions and children who are victims of abuse. These groups are more at risk; their social and economic exposure and lack of protective adults in their lives make them potential targets for trafficking.
Trafficking is a transnational crime and in order to counter it we need to cooperate on an international level. Right now, in Europe and also on our own doorstep here in Sweden the situation of unaccompanied refugee children is alarming. Many of these vulnerable children totally lack protective social networks and are therefore at risk of exploitation and trafficking. By our long term partner Barnrättsbyrån some of these children are supported in all their rights.

The reporter of Bild met queen Silvia in Bremen, where she visited "Refugio Bremen", a counseling and treatment center for refugee children and victims of torture. It is one of the projects World Childhood Foundation supports. Queen Silvia said: "In times like these it is important to support and help children who come from difficult backgrounds, who have had to flee from war-torn countries".
In the evening the queen went to restauranta Topaz, and after that flew to Copenhagen.

Queen Silvia attends on Sunday at the traditional Childhood Day at Gröna Lund.
Secretary General Paula Guillet de Monthoux from World Childhood Foundation tells that during the years over 8 million SEK has been collected with this event to WCF. The money has been used in their work with children at risk of violence and sexual abuse. The Childhood Day and cooperation with Gröna Lund has made crucial difference for many children, both in Sweden and worldwide.

Expressen met queen Silvia in Gröna Lund and asked
What does Childhood and Childhood Day mean for the Queen?
- Childhood is doing a very important job. We have worked for 16 years and we have had over 600 projects, not only in Sweden but also in South America, USA, Asia, and Europe. We are there where children need our help.
Queen Silvia tells specifically about a project she burns extra for. A project she also wants to spread further to a previous homeland.
- I've seen a model in Iceland called Barnahus. I have brought it to Sweden and it is amazing. You collect all the instances in a house for a child who has been the victim of violence. The kids don't have go to different places and tell the same thing 15 times. There are about 30 such places in Sweden and as many in Brazil. I would love to take it to Germany as well, she says.
However, it was not just Childhood Day highlighted on Sunday. Mother's Day is appreciated even in the royal family. But the Queen flags also because it might be time to make a new day, so that grandchildren could congratulate her.
- It was very nice. I do not think there's grandmother's day, but maybe it will be? That's wonderful.
After intense days, with the baptism of Prince Oscar, it was primarily tCrown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine, who courted the Queen on Sunday.
- The grandchildren were a little tired after such a great day. But I have had contact with the parents. Someone who was away called and sent a greeting. They all thought to congratulate their mother, so that was nice, says Queen Silvia.
- It is an important day and I wish all the mothers all the luck in the world.
