Crown Princess Victoria's Visit to Kenya: April 21-24, 2015 {Cancelled}

The court has updated Victoria's calendar. She visits Kenya on April 21-24.
Kalender - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]

Johan T Lindwall writes in Expressen that Victoria raises the working tempo, soon after the visit to South Korea a trip to Kenya.
- The Crown Princess is looking very much forward to the trip. She visited Kenya in 2009 and thinks it will be interesting to come back to see how Gundua's education and health projects have been developed. The Crown Princess will, among other things on this trip visit Gundua Secondary Day School in Ex-Lewa and a health clinic that Gundua Foundation is running. When the Crown Princess was there in 2009, she participated at the opening ceremony, says Ulrika Näsholm from the press department.
Victoria visits also a wildlife conservation project in Laikipia area. During the days in Kenya the crown princess will also visit Nairobi and at a health project there and also meet Swedish entrepreneurs at the area. Prince Daniel stays this time at home with Princess Estelle.

According to the court in addition to the visit to Kenya, Victoria will also visit Lisbon/Volvo Ocean Race on 4-5 June and Riga on 15th June. Maybe threads of them can be made later when we get more info and if a thread is needed. On 15th June in Riga is the EuroPride 2015 opening, I wonder if Victoria's trip has something to do with that.

It wouldn't surprise me. Victoria is one of the few royals who has participated in lgbt-events. She unexpectedly turned up at the Swedish gay-gala in 2013 to hand out the award "Homo of the year". The writer Jonas Gardell received the price.

That wouldn't surprise me either. But there is also a more likely event, a 10th Baltic Sea Science Congress starting. When Victoria visited Riga last September, president Bērziņš told at their meeting about this congress and invited Victoria there, because Victoria is very interested in Baltic Sea issues.

The terrorist attack in Kenya can stop Victoria

Just days after the court decided on Victoria's trip, the African country is shaken by a brutal terrorist attack. At least 70 students were killed by the terrorist group al-Shabab after a hostage situation at a university in Garissa in eastern Kenya.
The terrorist attack does not stop Victoria's planned trip - but it could be in jeopardy.
- We follow the developments and the Crown Princess is informed about the terrible incident in Kenya. This means that we will make a new safety assessment. We always do that when the royal family travels somewhere, said Margareta Thorgren
The court has not yet had time to consider how the trip is affected by Thursday's tragedy.
- All differend kinds of events mean that we must always be prepared and have the possibility to plan programs and trips again, says Thorgren.
The court will inform within the next few days what happens.
- We'll return to how it will be with the trip, says Thorgren.

The decision was made on Wednesday evening. The director of the press department Margareta Thorgren to Expressen:
- We have made a safety assessment and decided to postpone the planned trip. Of course the crown princess hopes to conduct the visit at a later time.

Thank you LadyFinn! I was just wondering about it few days ago. I think this decision was to be expected in a way...

Victoria is today in the Hague.

She visited ICC, the International Criminal Court and was greeted by President Judge Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi. Ambassador Håkan Emsgård accompanied Victoria.

Victoria visited Europol, the European law enforcement agency. She met with Rob Wainwright, Director of Europol, and the members of the Swedish Liaison Bureaux. Europol’s role in tackling serious organised crime and terrorism, and the strong cooperation between Europol and Swedish law enforcement authorities, were among the topics discussed during the visit.

From the website of the Embassy of Sweden in the Netherlands:
The day began with a meeting with Judge Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi who is president of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The Crown Princess conversed with representatives of various parts of the court.
During the afternoon the Crown Princess visited Europol. She was met by the head of Europol Rob Wainwright. Europol's activities are focused on fighting organized crime, terrorism and other forms of serious crime affecting two or more EU Member States. Crimes as drug trafficking, smuggling and trafficking, money laundering and computer crimes. The Crown Princess also talked with the Swedish police liaison officers and customs inspectors working in the Swedish part. The Swedish national member of Eurojust attended at the meeting.
The Crown Princess visited the OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons), where she was received by the Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü. The OPCW was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2013 and the Crown Princess got the opportunity to meet with employees who are operationally involved in efforts to prevent the proliferation and use of chemical weapons.

Ambassador Emsgård: "It was fun to show to the Crown Princess some of the key international organizations that exist here in The Hague and tell more about the work that the embassy makes on behalf of Sweden here. Sweden plays an active role in multilateral cooperation and in the active work for global peace and security that these organizations ".
