A heavy evening for the Crown Princess.
Victoria was full of grief and seriousness. The memorial ceremony for the victims of the Iranian air tragedy became emotional.
It was a distinctly moved Victoria who was present in the church and among other things lit candles in memory of those who were killed.
Many were affected by grief in the church and couldn't miss that Victoria had a really heavy evening. Rarely has Victoria looked so distressed when she, in the company of the Prime Minister, lit the candles in front of the altar in the beautiful church.

It strikes me that CP Victoria is an extremely empathic woman. Having said that, I think such occasions really weigh heavily on her shoulders, but that it is a gift is indisputable.

Victoria is celebrated for her sheer joy in living and her trademark megawatt smile is both amazing and real and the people of Sweden hold her close to their hearts.

They "get" that Victoria unashamedly gives of herself wholeheartedly whether in joy or grief, both privately and publicly and that her emotion is not fake or for the press.

On Tuesday, January 21, the Crown Princess gave and audience to Gudrun Persson and Fredrik Westerlund from the Swedish Defence Research Agency, FOI (Totalförsvarets forskningsinstitut).
At the meeting, the Crown Princess received a presentation of FOI's report "Russian military capability", which is issued approximately every three years on behalf of the Ministry of Defense.
The FOI report provides a forecast of Russian military capability until 2029. The forecast is based on analyzes of the armed forces and Russia's military discretion, as well as on political and economic factors affecting military development.

According to Aftonbladet Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is still in Poland after taking part in the ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz because one of the government planes broke down yet again. To make it possible for the nine elderly Holocaust survivors to get home to Sweden tonight the Crown Princess & some civil servants volunteered to spend the night at the airport.
The Prime minister & the Speaker of the Parliament also made it home tonight...

Crown Princess Victoria's departure from Auschwitz became a nightmare: The government plane was hit by an acute technical error.
- It became a technical error at the government plane - again. So the Crown Princess was forced to spend the night in Poland. She flew home with a regular flight that left at 5am this morning, with change in Warsaw. Now we have just landed at Arlanda, says Margareta Thorgren when we reach her just before eleven o'clock.
This means that the planned smooth journey from Katowice was completely frozen in and the Crown Princess was delayed home to Haga for more than half a day.
- We flew down with both government planes, the survivors and their companions went with one, and the Crown Princess, the Prime Minister and the Speaker with the other. And it was the crown princess's plane that broke down, says Margareta Thorgren.
- So that all the survivors could still come home, the Crown Princess relinquished her place in the plane.
It was well done.
- Yes it was. And there were also many who were deeply grateful for it. But it had been a long day for the survivors, with very strong feelings, and they are elderly. So the Crown Princess was worried about them and thought it was obvious that they would be allowed to come home.
This is the third time in just a few months that the royal family has remained on the ground when the government plane has broken. It must create great frustration for you?
- You must have a great deal of flexibility, and be prepared to change course quickly, says Margareta Thorgren diplomatically.
But that must be a challenge, with the royal family's minute-planned program?
- Yes, it gets complicated. But now we were lucky that the Crown Princess would be working at the office today. So in that way, no other mission became suffering.
- It is important to simply accept the circumstances.
How did the Crown Princess take this, to stay in Poland?
- She accepted the circumstances.

The day starts with national cancer coordinator Hans Hägglund and ends with Minister for Health and Social Affairs Lena Hallengren. During the day, H.R.H. Crown princess Victoria presents the awards for Process Manager of the Year and Contact Nurse of the Year in each healthcare region.

Victoria said at her speech among other things:
"As a patron of the Cancer Society's Pink Ribbon campaign, I have the privilege of following developments in some of cancer research and cancer care.
In this development, the national cancer strategy and the establishment of regional cancer centers have been milestones.
I know that it is unfortunately a while before everyone in our country has the same access to the same good care.
But I also know that fantastic progress has been made, with great significance both for society and for individuals."
"Like so many others in our country, I have friends and close relatives who are affected by cancer. Everyone testifies to the same thing: when you are at your most frightened and most extradited, when you are alone with your illness, then the treatment is everything."

The court at its website
On Monday, February 3, the Crown Princess attended an anniversary day to mark the national cancer strategy celebrating ten years. The aim of the strategy is to improve the quality of care for patients suffering from cancer.
The national cancer strategy was developed on the assignment of the Ministry of Social Affairs in 2009. The strategy has largely to focus on developing regional cancer centers that work to make cancer care more equal, doable and patient-focused.
During the anniversary day, which was arranged at the Karolinska Institutet in Solna, about 800 people are on site as workers or are involved in the development of cancer care in Sweden.

Victoria is the official patron of Folk och Kultur 2020 (People and Culture), the third edition of Folk och Kultur, the national gathering place for cultural policy in Sweden and the Nordic countries with over 125 program points over four days and a theme that ranges from democracy, the environment and gender equality to integration.

Kronprinsessan vid Folk och kultur - Sveriges Kungahus

Victoria said at her speech among other things:
At a time when we are offered simple answers, we need to guard our ability to ask questions.
Art, education and culture strengthen that ability. It helps us understand ourselves - and each other.
That is why it is so important that this opportunity exists for everyone. No matter where you live in the country, how old you are or where you come from.
You are many in here who devote your time and energy to this very thing: that we should have a lively arts and cultural life throughout our country. And that more people will have the opportunity to participate - either as an audience or as a practitioner.

The Crown Princess invited to "fika" at princess Sibylla's apartments and answered many questions from Emilia and her sister. Jennifer McShane, the Secretary General of Min Stora Dag (My Big Day) attend also at the meeting.
When the hour-long meeting came to an end, the Crown Princess was able to surprise the horse-interested Emilia with a ride through the capital with horse and carriage from The Royal Stables.
Madeleine is the patron of Min Stora Dag.

Min Stora Dag at its Instagram and Youtube, slideshow:
"I WANT TO MEET CROWN PRINCESS VICTORIA" ⁠
7-year-old Emilia is battling cancer in the form of a brain tumor called ependymoma. Emilia loves everything that is royal and usually watchES the Nobel dinner and TV shows with the Royal Family to see the princesses in their fine dresses. On her Big Day, she wanted to meet Crown Princess Victoria.⁠
- I wanted to ask Crown Princess Victoria what it feels like to be a real princess and if she also has a hard time in life sometimes, even though she is a princess, Emilia told before the visit.⁠
On Thursday morning, a nervous and very happy family was picked up by the limousine which drove them to the Royal Palace in Stockholm. ⁠⠀
After arriving at the Palace, the family was taken up to the magnificent Blue Lounge in Princess Sibylla's apartment where cozy sofas, a large crackling fire and a dazzling cake table awaited. Then Crown Princess Victoria stepped in
It was a long, heartfelt and relaxed conversation about everything between heaven and earth. If the Crown Princess lived her first years in the Palace, which king in the order of her father the King is, that the diadem requires a lot of hairpins to remain on her head and that it is important to watch out when going down the stairs to the Nobel banquet in long dress. The Crown Princess and Emilia also talked about life - and that it goes up and down.⁠
Emilia and her sister Maja also discovered that it was great to play and run around the Royal Palace and that the cakes on their saucer to their great joy were always filled. When it was time to say goodbye, the Crown Princess had arranged a real surprise. Watch the movie to see what it was! ⁠
https://www.instagram.com/p/B8jO1O2g1hO/

- It was so wonderful to see the Crown Princess encourage Emilia! says My Big Day General Secretary Jennifer McShane to Svensk Damtidning.
- The whole of the Big Day became a fireworks display of positive experiences that filled with important joy and energy. Emilia beamed with the Crown Princess all the time, and the happiness even in the eyes of the little sisters and their parents was wonderful to witness. This will be a memory of life for Emilia and her family!
Emilia had with her her newly purchased handbag, in which she packed carefully a nice letter to Victoria. She had also brought her big book about princesses.
It was a happy Emilia who could look back on a truly successful day.
After Emilia's Big Day at Crown Princess Victoria at the Palace, the whole family got to go royal cortege.
- The best thing about my Big Day has been everything. To go to the Palace, meet the crown princess for real, to ride with the king's horses and carriage and to swim in the pool at the hotel, says Emilia.
The Big Day ended with hamburgers and new baths in the pool. A beautiful final on an unforgettable day.
This is how the royal family supports My Big Day
- It was a wonderful atmosphere at the Palace during Emilia's Big Day. Solemnly, of course, but at the same time so warm and relaxed, My Big Day General Secretary Jennifer McShane, who was also present during the day, tells Svensk Damtidning.
- It was noticed that time and care was spent on making this a special and memorable occasion. Emilia and her family received an incredibly warm response from the Crown Princess and everyone else present from the very first moment.

Victoria's aide-de-camp colonel Laura Swaan Wrede takes the girls to princess Sibylla's apartment. "Have you been in Stockholm before?", she asks.
Emilia gaves her letter to Victoria. "To me?" says Victoria. "There are all her questions", says Emilia's mother. When they go to the table, Victoria says "Take as many as you like". Victoria goes to sit beside Emilia "I come to sit with you, so that you can help me to read everything what's in the paper". And in the end Victoria says "I heard that you like horses. Then I asked my father if you could ride with his horses at a big carriage".

This story made me smile - so heartwarming and a lovely gesture of Victoria to give Emilia and her sister a ride around Stockholm with the royal horses. It's sweet that a girl so young has a big interest in the SRF and even watches events like gala dinners too! I hope she pulls through her battle with cancer and this won't be the first and last time she'll ever meet Victoria.
Victoria seems so down-to-earth and considerate. She's one of my favourite royals for sure.

Victoria attended today at the meeting of Stiftelsen Kronprinsessan Margaretas Minnesfond (The Crown Princess Margareta's Memorial Fund) at the Royal Palace.
The Memorial Fund is based on the fundraising that Swedish women made in 1920 to commemorate Crown Princess Margareta's memory. The grant is distributed for domestic social and charitable purposes to associations and institutions, whose activities can be considered to be of general benefit.

Awwwwwwww.

(Not to ill-wish her father, but can she be queen already?)

I think Victoria's warmth and sincerity come because of or despite her own struggles, but she constantly, truly seems like such a nice, caring person. That was a very beautiful thing the Palace did, and I hope it helps Emilia.
