I am not sure if this is considered an official (royal) duty or if it is private. I think it is part of Project P and not part of her Royal Duties. BUT I am just guessing.

It's on the Swedish translation of the calendar but not the English translation:

The Global Child Forum on Southern Africa on September 8 is on neither the Swedish nor the English translation of the calendar but it definitely looks official:

Quote:
The Global Child Forum on Southern Africa will be held in Pretoria, South Africa on 8 September 2015.

(excerpt)
The Forum, with more than 30 prominent speakers and under the patronage and active participation of Dr. Graça Machel and H.R.H. Princess Sofia of Sweden, has a special focus on building partnerships and on corporate sustainability for the protection of children’s rights in Southern Africa. It will be a full day with inspiration and action; plenary sessions, networking luncheon, interactive ActionLab sessions and a networking reception.

Did Sofia have Sapo security for this visit or did Carl Philip pay for it? Will she have Sapo Security when she leaves the country?

For the Global Child Forum I see Dr. Graca Machel's name comes first. Dr. Machel should have prominence as the former first lady of Mozambique (she's a politician there too) and Nelson Mandela's widow, but I thought the royal goes before the "commoner". Dr. Machel is a DBE. I still don't understand why Sofia doesn't have the Seraphim order yet.

The link to the courts website has been posted a few posts prior to your question.

1. She will probably have some kind of security surrounding her, especially since South Africa unfortunately has quite high level of criminality.

2. There hasn't been any appropriate time to give it to her yet. You don't need to imply that she won't get it.

Daniel and Chris received their orders on their wedding days. Sofia may not have worn the sash over her gown, but the court could have announced she got it then. What's the hold up? There's no reason.

They are men. They didn't wear dresses, and sashes/orders are never worn with wedding dresses according to Swedish custom.

I know that you are desperately looking for negative things about Sofia, but give it a rest. Feel free to dislike her, but don't try to imply that others feel the same way as you do.

I don't know all the protocols about when Orders and Medals are awarded and they would differ with each monarchy probably. Chris did not get a title so I can see giving him the order on his wedding day. Princess Sofie became a Duchess and a Princess so I can see waiting for another event to give her the order.

Actually there really isn't any fixed protocol when it comes to handing out orders to members of the royal family anymore. The old system was abolished in 1975 and had to be revised 1995 because it was discovered that eventually future sovereigns would have to hand out orders to foreigners that they themselves weren't entitled to. This is why Princess Lilian didn't receive the Order of the Seraphim until 1995 although like Chris O'Neill she did receive The Order of the Polar Star around the time of her wedding. Another fact is that up to the reign of King GVIA the Swedish orders was rarely handed out to women - for instance Lilian was only the second woman to receive The Polar star.

i guess we will have to wait for the next gala dinner to see if sofia got her order, although there's no reason why she hasn't. we just didn't have the opportunity to see it on her. she will probably wear it for the nobel prize dinner so not long to go now for that. or maybe earlier, if there are any state visits programmed for 2015 to sweden?

The fact that Lilian got the Order of The Polar Star at the time of her marriage in 1976 has been bugging me since I wrote my post about it here - If since the Reform of the Order system in 1975 no Swedes, not even members of the royal family's, could receive any orders how was it possible for Lilian to get one? One explanation I found when googeling that sounds very plausible is that she was still a British citizen and therefore eligible to receive said order.

I read that too and the same way Silvia was given the Order of the Seraphim when she still was a german citizen. But that does nt explain why Lilian did not get the Seraphim before her Wedding but the Polar Star.

With an exception for (post 1995) the Royal family after 1975 the Seraphim is only awarded to Heads of states and heirs to a throne and has to be approved by the government. Since Lilian was neither I guess that's why she got the Polar Star instead. I can imagine the government made an exception for a future queen when allowing her to be awarded the Seraphim.

Btw (and yes I know I'm the one going on about this) is a thread about Project Playground really the right place to discuss orders?

She is Ulla Sjöström, who was interviewed at SVT's live broadcast before the wedding. She was described as one of Sofia's "mentors", she has been helping Sofia, she has been involved in Project Playground a few years and organized this gala for the first time last year. Ulla Sjöström is also the one who married Lina Hellqvist and Jonas Frejd.

The tickets to yesterday's gala cost 1500 SEK, 1000 SEK of that went to children via Project Playground.

Sofia wears the Reiss dress she had at one official photo.
