Madeleine is wearing a recycled gown from November 2012 for the gala tonight. I liked it better the first time, but it still a lovely gown.

^^ the interview
The Queen used to come home from trips and talk about vulnerable children.
It got Madeleine to realize how privileged she was.
- She dared talk about the problems, the princess says in an exclusive interview with Expressen.

Princess Madeleine is back in New York for a few intense days. Yesterday she launched with Queen Silvia's charity organization World Childhood foundation an app that will serve as a tool in the fight against sexual abuse of children. Madeleine also participated in a seminar at the UN headquarters organized by Childhood to discuss new UN bill from a child's perspective.
Afterwards, Madeleine tells how important it feels to be in there, of her commitment - and how it all began.
- It really means a lot for me to be here, that I can use my voice and highlight these issues. It needs to be done. Because there is a certain stigma surrounding sexual abuse, it is extremely important that we talk about the problems and above all talking about how big the problem is. The fact that there are 200 million children who are being exploited is terrible and unacceptable.

Princess Madeleine was working as a project manager for Childhood during her years in New York and has continued with the mission of the organization even after moving to London. In recent years, she feels that the issues have been given a more prominent place on the agenda.
- I'm so happy to be here and see that we - the United Nations - are talking about problems. We are talking about children's rights, which has not always been a given. It was only last year that the UN development goals came to focus on child abuse. It is a big step in the right direction.

Does the Princess remember any particular moment or event when she decided to start working on these issues?
- It was probably due to a series of events, but especially when Mom came home from her travels and the work she did with Childhood. She always told me what she had seen, what she's been through and about the children she met who were in really horrible situations. I was quite small then, but she dared to talk even with her children about these problems. It got me to be involved and feel "God, I have been privileged to have it so good".
- After that, I wanted to help and do good, and I wanted to support my mother in the work - for it is quite heavy. These are difficult questions and she has been so busy in her role as Queen. She has so much to do that if I can do small part and help her with Childhood I'd love it.

Even on her official Facebook page yesterday the princess praised her mother when she unveiled the new app:
- I have always admired my mother's courage and aims to continue to fight against sexual abuse of children. As a mother of two, I am now even more determined to help create a world free from sexual abuse for all children in our lifetime, she wrote there.
Just like the princess wrote - and talked about here at the UN - the princess is now the mother of two small children. How has this role changed you and your attitude to work?

It is a clear change. I know myself how vulnerable one's own children are and how innocent they are. One wants to protect them from all evil! And so one thinks of all the children who have no parents and who do not have those safe arms. So it is clear, I feel I want to fight even harder now for all children to have a safe environment.
Is princess concerned for her own children? It's like we talked about, in many ways a dangerous world.
- Yes, it is, and yes, absolutely. Obviously also the Internet, which is very good in many ways, but also uncomfortable considering everything that is going on against children. But it is especially important that we talk about the problems.
Madeleine says that if there is anything she wants to achieve, it is more willingness to take on these issues.
- A call to all parents to talk to their children and indeed tell their kids that "you have rights, you have the right to say no, this is my body and no one touches my body if I do not want it." To educate parents feels like something important that we need to focus on.
Quick course for parents
According to Madeleine, it is also what is the aim with the new app.
- It's like a crash course for parents and other adults around children who are wondering what you can do. It is both a deterrent, how to prevent anything happening and what you can do if you see something. You might see the sign but do not quite know what to do, you can go into the app and then there are quick steps - how to react and whom to contact.

Speaking of children and the princess's own children - Princess Leonore really charmed Sweden lately. She seems to have a determined will and can be quite mischievous ...
- Mmmm, says Madeleine and starts laughing.
How is it to more children?
- It really is great fun. But it is full. Therefore, it also feels great to be here and instead focus on the world's children.

Great interview! Madeleine is very well versed on the subject!

Yeah, I think she also avoided the question about her own children well.She wanted to talk about what she was doing there instead of talking about Leonore again.

Prinvess Madeleine is on a visit to the States currently to carryout engagements on behalf of childhood, where among other things she will attend board meetings in her capacity as a board member.....this is yet another visit not listed on her court calendar -.- not to mention that no programme of events was published either, the only reason this visit has been made known is because svenskdam called the court asking why Madde and Chris didn't attend the events of the second day of the State Visit
