I was wondering why there were no pictures of the Global Child Forum event. A private charity function? That could have been planned around the GCF, especially when Sofia was scheduled to appear

The court hasn't published photos of the dinner held a day before Global Child Forum on previous years either, so it is nothing special that there aren't any photos of the dinner.

And now the court put tonight's dinner again to the calendar...

It is a pity that Project Playground gets attention on this day.

I see what you mean, but I do not think that an event is more important than the other. The cover media is more important for the Global Child. For the rest, it will be gossip newspapers.

Will they continue to have a prominent role in PP? (especially Sofia, since she was her who was into it), It seems PP is still quite in the focus for them.

Sofia said when she retired from her work as the Secretary General of PP, that she will be a very active honorary chairperson. Carl Philip was a member of the board, and after the wedding he is a honorary member of the board. According to the court calendar Sofia attends at the PP board meetings, Carl Philip doesn't.

Thanks. I've always thought that Sofia would focus more on events for the "palace" rather than PP.

I suppose one thing doesn't exclude the other. With many active members it is advisable for some to find a niche. Since Sofia was involved with PP before her marriage it makes sense to continue that. The Dutch RF did the same: Maxima as a banker is involved in finance projects at the UN, Margriet -a trained nurse- works for the red cross, Laurentien who volunteered in teaching people to write, was involved with an illiteracy project after her wedding, etc. If anything it makes their involvement more credible.

I fail to see what the issue is. I doubt there is anything on any-ones calendar that has not been approved by the King. How many fundraising dinner has not the Queen attended. $2,500 is a very low price to pay for a unique fundraising event. Perhaps there are attendees from the Global Child forum that are attending the dinner. It makes sense to have the dinner when foreign attendees are in Sweden anyway.

One can hardly compare Global Child Forum with it's prominent experts and speakers from all over the world to Project Playground.

Sofia told to Svensk Damtidning, that they are at the party as guests. And that Project Playground launches a project in Sweden. It's about newly arrived Swedes and how to interact the children who come to Sweden.
Ny intervju med prins Carl Philip och Sofia _ Svensk Damtidning

From the photos in Expressen we can see some of the guests arriving: Madeleine's friends Katarina von Horn, Tin-tin Burén, Veronica Arph, Louise Ringström Grandinson, Louise Gottlieb and Lovisa de Geer with their husbands/partners. And Bathina Philipson, the wife of King's friend Aje Philipson. And Frida Vesterberg with her partner was there too.
Also Stephanie Bergström, the wife of Madeleine's ex-boyfriend Jonas Bergström, arrived. Her company Soft Goat has supported Project Playground as corporate friend for some years. Stephanie arrived with her friend Malin Andrén, who owns the clothing company By Malina and designs the clothes. Stephanie and Malin have their companies at the same premises.

[QUOTE=LadyFinn;1842669]One can hardly compare Global Child Forum with it's prominent experts and speakers from all over the world to Project Playground.

The meeting in Stockholm had over 400 participants from many aspects of large and small NGO's, financial institutions, academia, governments and other organizations and agencies. Princess Sofia also represented the King and Queen at the regional meeting of Global Child Forum in Africa earlier in the fall. This is a meeting for both experts and the actual providers of service. So it certainly would not be surprising if there were some participants at both events. As a member of the royal family and also involved in her NGO when she puts on a fundraising event it will not go unnoticed.

The evening was organized by Nio Rum. During the evening there was an auction with twelve objects: clothes, trips, art, donated by companies and private persons. People could also buy the Project Playground bracelet. The evening collected a little over SEK one million.

The cocktail dress Sofia wore was pretty good (different earrings would have been better), but she is one month behind Victoria in pregnancy? The cinched waist on the dress suggests otherwise. So do the tight jeans in the Instagram.

On December 9, Project Playground visited TriOptima during ICAP Charity Day. TriOptima is part of ICAP, which gives one day each year all of its profits to organizations worldwide that make life better for vulnerable people. Project Playground was one of the beneficiaries this year.
Sofia and Secretary General Daniel Madhani told about PP's operations in South Africa and future plans in Sweden for more than 100 employees of TriOptima. The employees also had the opportunity to ask questions about PP's work.

New necklace in Pilgrim's collection for the benefit of Project Playground
Pilgrim Jewellery has since 2015 supported us through the design and sale of a small jewelry line. The collection for the benefit of Project Playground has so far resulted in feminine bracelets and earrings in gold, silver, rose gold and hematite. Now is also launched necklace with two pendants with a heart and a piece of the puzzle in gold, silver and rose gold, which reflects our message and work.
The pieces in the collection are sold at selected retailers in Sweden and all proceeds will be donated to Project Playground, which is 115 SEK per necklace.
