Sofia and her sister Lina were at the audience of Schulman Show.
Sofia Hellqvist gästade Schulman Show – i publiken | Svensk Damtidning
Google translation
The Schulman show is apparently one of the cheapest commercial talk show kind, and to appear sitting excitedly in the front row of its live audience is IMO not exactly the smartest idea for someone in Sofia Hellqvist's position, to put it very, very mildly.

Even after all the discussion about Daniel I'm still under the impression that he is a prince in his own right.

The host of this Schulman Show is Alex Schulman. His brother Calle has been given a lot of credit and praise for Sofia and Project Playground at his blog, he has also raised money for Project Playground.

Project Sofia is nothing more than a big spin, isnt it. I'd never thought that a royal house would lower themselves to such a levels in order to make a royal girlfriend look presentable.

Did the same thing with Project Camilla and other royal gfs who had to transform from regular girls to royal princesses. But of course you don't want to admit that Project Sofia as you call it isn't new or just something the SRF are doing.

It's one thing that royal "girlfriends" are groomed to become suitable royal wives, but as far as I can recall neither Camilla nor any other royal girlfriend or boyfriend have had such a prominent public role as Sofia has created for herself, most other royal girlfriends have tried to stay away from the limelight until the engagement have been made public.

Camilla was out and about with Charles prior to there 2005 wedding, she also apparently was doing charity work before going public with Charles and added on some more after she went public.
Still waiting for her to get a ring just to see how much it's going to piss people off.

No royal house had to transform former soft porn model and reality show contestant. Judging from the reactions from Sweden, they are not doing a very good job.

I somehow now don't believe a Royal Engagement is coming for this couple after all. Something tells me it is still a long way off, if at all!

Today's finnish Iltalehti (paper issue) quoted Expressen:
The king has invited Sofia to spend her holiday in Solliden with Carl Philip. During the summers before, Sofia was only invited for some short daily visits to Solliden, but this year the king has organized an own apartment from a house near the Solliden palace (I guess at the palace estate) for her and Carl Philip.
There has happened a big change on the attitudes of the king and the queen towards Sofia. The queen was at first against at Carl Philip and Sofia dating, but nowadays she also spends time alone together with Sofia. Sofia is interested in gardening and she is going to help the queen with her plantations. Sofia can also attend at Victoria's 35th birthday and to the private family dinner.
According to Iltalehti and Expressen, when Madeleine heard about that Sofia has been invited to Solliden, she got angry to her father. She has made many times known to her family that she has nothing in common with Sofia and that she is not going to spend the next weeks with Sofia.

** Maybe we shall see in next few weeks, if any of this is true.

the only reliable info is so far the website of the monarchy, it does NOT mention Sofia, last minute surprises are possible but I doubt.

"No royal house had to transform former soft porn model and reality show contestant. Judging from the reactions from Sweden, they are NOT doing a very good job" is also what I read!! I would prefer to hear about good news for Madeleine, who seems to accept to be more involved in official duties. Yes wait and see!!

The royal court website doesn't mention Sofia, because she isn't a member of the royal family. We will see on Saturday, will she (and Chris?) attend at the Victoriadagen concert.

Sofia attending Victoria's birthday? Even Daniel wasn't at the official celebrations until they were engaged!

Times change and even royal families have to change with them if they want to stay together as a family.

I think it has a lot to do with the King's fall from grace. Before that the SRF was sporting a high moral compass in public. Nowadays the SRF's motto re Sofia's past would be those who live in a glass house shouldn't throw stones.

I also wonder if some of it is coming from Victoria and Daniel. They strike me as caring, empathetic people and perhaps they don't want their siblings to have to keep their partners totally separate from family events, the way they had to for so long.

Yes, me too.
I wonder if Sofia H would be where she is today, if it wasn't for the King C G "controversy"...

From the Project Playground Twitter, cleaning day at the office in Sweden. It looks to me that it is Sofia's sister Lina at the other photo.

Interesting - papers stuffed in designer shopping bags next to a heap of glossy mags, clothes on a rack (which you'd find in a fashion stylist's office) in the adjoining room, exactly one document folder on the shelf...
Thank you for posting these pics, SnowQueen; for depicting a charity organization's work space I find them rather, let's say: Informative.
