When Sofia and Carl Philip marry and she will be styled as HRH Princess Sofia of Sweden has she to stop her work for Project Playground or can she continue?

I'm guessing she'll carry on her work with Project Playground.

Well, as Princess she will be engaged in many Social Projects.... so why not keeping Project Playground? The only difference will be, that she has one Project at the Moment and that she will have several in the future. So less time for only one activity.

Sofia is not going to become a full-time princess
Project Playground held yesterday a press meeting at Hotel Skeppsholmen, they briefed about their collaboration with street artist Shai Dahan.
Next summer, Sofia Hellqvist can be a princess when she marries Prince Carl Philip. But unlike Prince Daniel, she will most likely not give up her career.
Along with Frida Vesterberg Sofia started the charity project which aims to give children in the townships of South Africa meaningful leisure, for a safer and more secure future. Sofia spends a lot of time in South Africa and longs for "her children" when she is at home in Sweden.
- Yes, of course. Entire Project Playground is a part of the family and I spend many months a year down there, says Sofia Hellqvist.
Shai Dahan's Recollection- exhibition is in Hotel Skeppsholmen - and whose proceeds will go back to the project.
- The sky is the limit! said Sofia also told that after the end of the year they expect to open a third center in South Africa.
After the wedding Sofia Hellqvist will continue her work.
- Of course, I will continue to work, I have spent many years and a lot of work into this, she says.
Sofia tänker inte bli heltidsprinsessa Nyheter Expressen

She is quite nicely exaggerating the time she spends in Langa in a year.

Sofia is not seen in public a lot. It's very possible that she's in Africa a great deal of the time.

Well, she could prove that by taking photographs of her work there to their social media or website. But there are photos of her this year in Langa only in March when she went there with people from Young Cancer -organization. And South Africa is so far away that she hardly goes there for a day or two and comes back to Sweden. Although she isn't seen in public, people are writing seeing her and Carl Philip in Sweden at the social media. And Svensk Damtidning tells about their goings in their paper issue with old photos.

This year I have seen photos/articles of Sofia at least these events:
Beginning of January At the skiing holiday in Italy with the royal family
January 24 She collected a painting to their auction
January 29 With Carl Philip at the theater in Stockholm

May 7 Speaking at the Scandinavian E-business Camp in Gothenburg
May 30-June 1 At a wedding with Carl Philip

How active and serious was Sofia's involvement in 'Project Playground' before the Sofia-PR-machine kicked in?

Project Playground organized today a GoKart charity Karting event in Stockholm. The drivers from the Royal Automobile Club (the king is the patron) were coaching the people. A team had to pay 10000 SEK, and all the proceeds go to Project Playground.

Sofia and Carl Philip attended, and Lina Hellqvist and Hanna Malmberg Eriksson from Project Playground. Carl Philis is of course a honorary member of the Royal Automobile Club.

A couple of points.

1. I highly doubt that Sophia will become a 'full time royal' under any circumstances. There is not an actual Princess shortage in the family.

2. I think the entire Project Playground was cooked up as a repackaging of Ms Helqvist with the neccessary PR to make her more palatable as CP's bride.

3. I think when you look at the entirety of her working career (such as it was) the time spent with Project Playground is a tiny minority of how she has spent her time/earned her living. She spent FAR more years 'modeling' for mens magazines, etc so I cant justify calling Project Playground 'her career'.

It's always good to see Sofia working hard for Project Playground. She, her sister and partners have dedicated a great deal of their time, energy and heart to this great cause and I think that should be applauded.

It's easy to just write off Sofia's dedication to Project Playground but I think she's involved with the charity because she love those children, their families and truly want to help them. Let go of the past and look to the future with hope.

I totally agree. Frida Vesterberg had lived many years in South Africa and founded an organization. Somehow, Sofia got into it. And gets now all the credit. They may do a good work, but it is just because of Frida Vesterberg. And the money they get because Sofia is connected with Carl Philip. If Sofia wasn't with Carl Philip, they would have quite difficult to work with because it isn't so easy to collect the money.

If she loves those children so much, it would be natural that she would spend more time with them in Langa. It is so easy for her to promote herself in Sweden by sitting comfortably at her office and posing at charity events, while she knows that money is coming because she is with Carl Philip. She claimed to Svensk Damtidning that she spends two-three months a year there...

Oh, now Sofia is an evil woman who attracts money to a charity that helps African children. She should be punished for that, the evil witch.

But I bet she's doing far more to those children than the people who spend their time on Internet criticizing her for no rational reason.

From what I understand, Sofia do spend a great deal of time with the children. She, her sister and the rest of the team that make up Project Playground, spend a great deal of time with the children but also they spend a great deal of time promoting and raising funds for the charity. Having Prince Carl Philip getting involved and help raise money don't hurt things and as long as it's helping the children, why should it matter?

I think she is always gonna be damned no matter what she does. Some will never find anything she does good enough. Her past is hers and if the royal family can accept it and her into the family good for them. No one knows how much work she does for her charity but will deny she works for it as she says she does.
