Thanks for the photos and videos. It's nice to see the couple interacting with children, Sofia seems to get on well with them, though IMO it's too early to tell whether or not she is a "natural" (as some would say) with children as she hasn't had enough public appearances.

Carl Philip and Sofia arrived at 10.15 to cellulose company I-Cell in Älvdalen, Sofia's home municipality.
Live broadcast:
Live - Prinsparet kommer till Dalarna
Photos will be updated here, like yesterday
Bildextra - Följ prinsparet på resan genom Dalarna

Sofia's speech. Couldn't she have written that short speech to one page, so that she wouldn't have had to lick her finger...

It looks like Sofia is doing ok on the the meet-and-greet tours (part of royal work),but when is she going to get a patronage of her own? That is, be in charge of a meeting where she is conducting the agenda? The South Africa trip doesn't count because she was honorary patron there.

I'm sure she will in time,Sofia is still learning the royal ropes so to speak and things will be done gradually easing her into royal duties.

@Lady Finn - I thought you made that up about the finger licking during the speech. I looked at the tape and I couldn't believe it. Sorry, but...no. Sofia needs to go back to media training and public speaking courses for refreshers. Using a cheat like Tacky Finger (a paste like substance to help sort paper) would have been better.

I don't think there should be a rush to assign patronages because once assigned the royal is committing to working on that organization's behalf and it should be a good fit and an area that the royal has a long-term interest in. Sofia's work with Project Playground proves that she is no slouch when it comes to charity work and she's done PP events since getting married in addition to representing the King and Queen at the Global Child Forum in Pretoria, so she has definitely been doing charity / humanitarian work since joining the Swedish Royal Family.

It's not a deadly sin to do that. And her public speaking is just fine. In fact, if you compare her to other royal spouses, there are very few who have represented and held speeches so soon after the marriage.

Of course she will make small errors. She is human. But on the whole, I think she's off to an excellent start.

I'm also thinking that Sofia and Carl Philip will be needed for more general representation duties next year when Victoria and Daniel will be on parental leave. That is also a reason to not assign so many specific patronages to them yet.

Did he actually race or was this a photo-op? It is the morning of the christening is it not?

They attended at an assembly evening. It is an evening organised normally twice a year at the Royal Palace, where the people from the court parish gather to the Palace. There hasn't been any photographers or press at the previous evenings. We get photos only if the court puts an article to their website. They haven't done so many times during the years.
