Crown Princess Victoria was elected as the first honorary member in 2004. Prince Daniel, now joins his wife. He is also a good golfer with about 4 of the hcp.

Daniel attends on Wednesday at The International 21st Puijo Symposium in Kuopio, Finland. The director of Kuopio Research Institute of Exercise Medicine, Rainer Rauramaa is Daniel´s host. Rauramaa tells at the paper version of Iltalehti, that Daniel will arrive to Kuopio early tomorrow morning. This is a low profile event for Daniel, he and the court have wanted that he can concentrate at the Symposium in peace. Daniel won´t give interviews and the press doesn´t have access to the auditorium. Rauramaa tells also that Daniel will have his own security men with him. Daniel will attend at the lunch with the lecturers and at the Reception of the City of Kuopio held at the City Hall.
Program of the symposium on Wednesday:
The International 21st Puijo Symposium

Daniel arrived to Finland with a regular flight by Blue1 at 01.30 Finnish time.

He didn't get much sleep. Too bad he can't stay at the symposium longer, it looks really interesting.

In the beginning of the Symposium there were problems with some technical equipment. The Symposium began a little late because of this. After the presentation the participants had some gymnastic exercises. Both the ordiance and the lecturers stood up of their chairs and flexed and streched with the music. Daniel took his coat off and did the exercises too. At the Symposium there were gymnastic exercises during the day for many occasions. The idea came from a Swedish sports physiotherapist Ing-Mari Dohrn. She teaches at the Karolinska Institute and suggested exercises to the organizers of this symposium and they took up the idea enthusiastically. Ms. Dohrn also directed the gymnastic exercises.

The Prince turned out to be a true man of the people, as he shook hands with a few people and talked to them. Daniel´s warm behavior charmed the audience. He was given two flowers, one blue and one yellow.

Wow! It really is as if he had been a prince from birth. He is both down-to-earth and charismatic, a bit shy and confident at the right moment.
Victoria was wise in her choice.

The marketing director of the city of Kuopio, Kirsi Soininen, told in the morning that she believes that the prince's visit will bring publicity to Kuopio.
- This is an amazing opportunity to get publicity for the city. Healthy and thriving urban culture should be supported, and I hope that the prince's visit will provide the matter forward.
Ms. Soininen told also that they found out in advance how the prince should be called.
The expressions Your Royal Highness or Ers Kungliga Höghet can be used onlyonce. After that prince Daniel.

Daniel did not want to receive the honorary title "Länkiritari", which Puijo Symposium organizers wanted to give him. It was planned that Daniel takes the confession, and it included getting collars at the reception of the city of Kuopio. But Daniel announced on Tuesday that he refuses of the honorary title, because of the stir his studying has raised in Sweden as well as the lack of experience in the field of medicine.

Daniel gave an interview to Savon Sanomat. He said he was very impressed about the symposium:
- I heard about the Congress, and got the invitation, and thought immediately it was very interesting. It is impressive that the world's most influential researchers in the field participate at the symposium. It is very important that people know that it is never too late to start a fitness and strength training in order to obtain health, summed Daniel up the morning presentations.
According to Daniel is a big challenge to motivate people to exercise more, even if the physical connection of disease prevention is well known.
- It's not easy to start, if you have never moved and exercised. Spontaneous physical activity everyday life, using stairs, and walk instead driving with a car could be a key to get into this.

Daniel gave an interview to Savon Sanomat and told that although he travels a lot and the schedule is often busy, he always tries to find time to exercise. It happens often late in the evening or early in the morning, but because he knows it´s important, he always finds the time. In Kuopio he didn´t have time to jog at Väinölänniemi, he arrived at 01.30 and the symposium began at 08.00. Daniel said that he slept barely four hours.
Daniel said that the first year as a prince has been a very good year.

Daniel also refused to comment in any way the Swedish royal family's role in the media stir lately. He stressed that he wanted to focus the issues of the symposium, aging and exercise. Daniel showed also interest in the Haminalahti hunting lodge history, he said that he hunts sometimes.

Mayor Petteri Paronen said he had an interesting conversation with Daniel.
- He is truly genuinely interested in psysical Exercise, and considered this as a fine opportunity to meet with top researchers in the field. He is a very nice man.

Daniel went to a golf course in Öland yesterday morning at seven o´clock, and an Aftonbladet photographer was waiting him there (!). Daniel laughed to him: I came here early to avoid the photographers!
Victoria and Daniel had arrived to Öland at the weekend.

Daniel was at his favourite hobby, playing golf again on Sunday. I found this blog where a girl who works at the golf course tells about how Daniel came to play golf with some friends and she sold a hot dog for him. Daniel had also said that "My wife, she's actually really good to hit the (golf ball). But she would never go out on the track, but she has a great swing!"
- What a story!

Daniel was at 1st June with his mother and sister Anna watching the final of GD/GIF-olympiad in Gävle, they were watching Anna´s daughter competing.

The contest, in which a host of familiar names like Mats Sundin, Hans Fahlen, Peppe Eng, Ernst Billgren and Eve Roese participate, will be held for the fifth consecutive year and brings together this year, money for UNICEF's work on famine in the Horn of Africa.
Daniel was sitting next to Professor Hans Blix, former Secretary General of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA. He spoke also with the staff from UNICEF.

In addition to Daniel, also Sofia Hellqvist attended the event. Daniel hugged Sofia when he was leaving. Sofia told to the media: "Daniel is such a great guy".
