No, she has two engagements this week... both in Stockholm so she is probably at home at Drottningholm

Tomorrow she will be present at the Junior Water Prize and on wednesday she will attend a concert at Stockholm palace
Will the Crown Princess also attend the World Water Forum this year, which should be held within a few weeks in Stockholm again. The Prince of Orange will be there too.

My Dutch is very rusty, Marengo, but does this mean that Willem-Alexander is in Stockholm at the moment? Edit: Never mind - see his speech below.

Today's event is the only one on the calendar for Victoria in connection with the World Water Week. The King and Queen have a few events, though.

Link to the site of the event in question: World Water Week in Stockholm - Where the Water World Meets

The speech of the Prince of Orange: http://www.worldwaterweek.org/Downlo...0WWW070814.pdf

Victoria awarded the World Water Week in Stockholm - Stockholm Junior Water Prize tonight.

The Swedish king will be present at the seminar "Cities at Risk: A Warmer World and the Big Chill for Urban Planners" on Thursday.

The Swedish king be present when World Water Week in Stockholm - Stockholm Water Prize is awarded. The king will present it.

You are right, he will be there the 13th till the 16th. Why does CP Victoria always attend the event? Is she involved in watermanagment too?

From the site:

[The prize]*is awarded to encourage the interest of young people in water and science issues. In 2007 the Stockholm Junior Water Prize celebrates its 10th anniversary as an international youth competition open to pre-university students between ages 15–20 who have completed a water-related project. The projects can be done individually or in a group, and may focus on a local, regional or global problem.
To read about the finalists' projects, as well as information about previous winner projects: http://www.worldwaterweek.org/prizes...2007%20web.pdf :flowers:

I'm loving to see all of these pics. Willem-Alexander being there is that because of his own personal interests for his country? I'm just curious why W-A is there.

off subject but Marengo, I love your avatar, it's very nice!

Willem-Alexander has been involved with water managment for a long time, you can read about that here. At the moment he is chairman of the UN Secretary-General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation.

I like the avatar too actually, though I believe it is WA´s younger brother Friso who is hanging over the late Prince Claus in Porto Ercole, Italy.

Kelly 08-17-2007 06:42 PM

Yes, I saw a video once of WA talking about this project. Good for him and Victoria!

Drottning 08-17-2007 07:56 PM

My Queen looks amazing!!!!!:wub::wub::wub::wub:
