Queen Silvia begins her visit in Heidelberg tomorrow at 11 o'clock. The solemn ceremony for the inauguration of the Childhood-Haus in the auditorium of the New University is scheduled at 12.15. Afterwards the queen will greet the people of Heidelberg on the university square. "If you want to see the queen, you should be at the university square between 12 and 13 o'clock", says Julia Reichel, who is responsible for the communication of the World Childhood Foundation Germany.
Thereafter, the queen continues to the Altklinikum in Bergheim, where the Childhood-Haus is located. There she is first greeted by children of the Swedish School of German-Swedish Society, before she visits the the house.
After further appointments in the afternoon, the anniversary celebration at the castle will take place from 7 pm onwards. Friends and longtime companions of the foundation are invited to the royal hall of the castle. In this context, the monarch will also honor eleven journalists from the Hessischer Rundfunk for their multimedia theme special "Victims without Voice - How we protect our children from violence". The donations collected during the gala flow into the project work with children who have experienced sexual violence.
On Friday, the official visit will come to an end: In the morning, a meeting of the Childhood Foundation will take place before Queen Silvia will travel to Bensheim to receive the Karl-Kübel-Prize there. The Foundation for Children and Family honors the outstanding commitment of the Queen for the protection and rights of children with the award endowed with 25,000 euros. She will then take part in a working meeting with representatives of her foundation in Hessen to establish a Childhood-Haus there.

From Thursday, queen Silvia gave an interview to Rhein-Neckar Zeitung.
Your Majesty, Today is the opening of the second German Childhood House in your native city. How important is it for you to be represented in Heidelberg with your foundation?
- The first Childhood house in Germany was founded in Leipzig. That made me very happy, because it is a prime example. Of course, I'm really pleased that Heidelberg is following the example, because I realized that the problem was understood, tackled and made the house possible in a very short time. Of course, the experts in Heidelberg have worked well before, but now all the institutions involved in the Childhood House have a common home. It is so important that the children are welcomed in a child-friendly environment, there is a calm atmosphere and the experts are not constantly interrupted. In the Childhood House, the question is at the center: How to help the children? It fills me with pride that my Heidelberg has implemented this.
More Childhood houses are planned in Berlin, Offenburg and Dusseldorf. When you founded the foundation in 1999, did you believe that the idea would prevail in such a way?
- The foundation was founded a long time ago, 20 years ago. There was another situation. Today, "Me too" is everywhere in the world, where women who have been exploited attract attention. That they have found such a hearing, I think is incredibly important. But 20 years ago, children were not listened to. What happens to children is taboo in many countries, people do not talk about it. Also for me it was not easy to talk about it - as a woman, as a mother and as a queen. But I thought: if no one talks about it, you can not change it. That moved me to go ahead and found the World Childhood Foundation in Sweden, Germany, Brazil and the US. Today we have 100 good projects every year, which we implement very carefully and responsibly.
In Heidelberg you are celebrating the 20th anniversary of your foundation at the castle. Do you remember your first state visit here in Heidelberg?
- Yes, I do: That was 1979. Were you already born?
No, I was born just one year later ...
- But yes, I remember. It was a strange situation because I expected Prince Carl Philip, the eighth month. That was a bit complicated. A state visit to Germany was, of course, the first thing you wanted to organize after the wedding in 1976 from the German side. But then I expected Victoria and we had to stop the planning. In 1979 I did not dare to cancel for the second time. It was fantastic: All people of Heidelberg were on their feet, you had to form a ring of security around me so I could move. But there was much warmth, even to the king. It was really nice. I also sneak back to Heidelberg every now and then. My parents are buried here, including my brother. I am in Heidelberg more often than you know.
When you are in Heidelberg, are there any special memories that you have of your childhood?
- Naturally! Not only that my father was born in Heidelberg, my mother also was brought here from Berlin in 1943 during the dangerous years. My brothers were here at school, I was born here - and of course that connects. I remember when my father drove past a certain bridge, he always spoke in the Heidelberg dialect and told us a lot about his jokes in school. That's why the city is very much alive in our family. When we came back to Heidelberg in 1957/58, the house was not yet ready: until it was finished, I was at the boarding school in Wieblingen. These were my first experiences in Germany: school. "Not yet on a class level," it was said at that time about me - and I was actually not yet. Wieblingen was particularly interesting, a good school, strict, At that time, there was only girls. I experienced my first snow and my first advent singing here. It was a great time.
In the establishment of the Childhood House, your foundation placed great value on the connection to your old school, the Elisabeth-von-Thadden-Schule: All the pictures in the rooms are from the pupils there.
- This is a very delightful thought and I thank the team of Childhood Germany. That is especially nice, the connection between the school and the children being looked after here.
Did your foundation ultimately make you talk more about sexual abuse?
- In many countries it is still a taboo topic. Of course the Childhood House has become a symbol: we have 37 houses in Sweden, two in Germany and I know that many will follow. I'm glad about that. But we are also active in other areas: many years ago we received a call from a young engineer who wanted to do something against pedophilia. He has developed the "Netclean" computer program, with the help of Childhood, which companies can install to report police who download child pornography material during working hours. Many pedophiles have been found with it in Sweden. So we have ensured that in everyday life on this topic is spoken.
One last question about Heidelberg: When you're in Stockholm, what comes to your mind first when you think of Heidelberg?
- I have to say, the warmth of the people. Really, I have friends - friends everywhere. And when I walk through Heidelberg, I feel that everyone is friendly to me. And in a cordiality that is really moving. I also got several serenades. So it's always nice.

From today

Queen Silvia received The Karl Kübel Prize
"We are very pleased to hand over the award to Her Majesty on today's 110th birthday of our Founder"," said Matthias Wilkes, Chairman of the Board of the Karl Kübel Foundation. "Queen Silvia exemplifies how she works with her child rights organization, the World Childhood Foundation, to fight against the exploitation and abuse of children." In more than 100 projects worldwide, these children are affected or threatened by sexual exploitation or abuse. The prize money goes to the World Childhood Foundation.
Peter Maffay, singer and Karl Kübel Prize Winner 2016, gave a touching eulogy as a longtime companion in the engagement for children: "Your Majesty has always looked closely where others have looked the other way. You are the best ambassador for children in Sweden and around the world. "
"I am proud to receive this prestigious Karl Kübel Award! We share one important concern: that children can grow up without neglect and violence", said Queen Silvia at the presentation of the award. For Germany, the World Health Organization counts on one million affected girls and boys who have experienced or are experiencing sexual violence. "This frightening number will not change that fast if we adults do not speak openly about this taboo topic, if we are not attentive, take children seriously, listen to them and act responsibly", the monarch stressed.

On September 5 and 6, the Queen spent in Heidelberg, Bensheim and Wiesbaden in Germany. During the visit the World Childhood Foundation's 20th anniversary was celebrated.
On Thursday, the Queen attended the inauguration of the second Childhood House of Germany. The formal opening ceremony took place in the large hall of Heidelberg University. During the ceremony, the Queen made a speech.
Then the Queen, together with Elke Büdenbender, the wife of German President, went to the new children's house.
"Childhood Haus" is for children who are suspected of being subjected to violence or sexual abuse. The environment in the houses is adapted to the needs of the children and everyone that the child meets there, for example the police investigators, prosecutors, social services, psychiatry, forensic medicine, child health and medical care are specially trained for it.
The relevant authorities cooperate on the spot so that the child does not have to be carried around to different places and repeat their story of trauma time and time again.
During the evening a dinner was given at Heidelberg Palace to celebrate Childhood's 20th anniversary.
On Friday morning, the Queen's program continued with a board meeting in Childhood Deutschland. The Queen then went to Bensheim to receive the Karl Kübel Prize.
The Karl Kübel Foundation praised the Queen for her commitment to the world's children through the formation of the World Childhood Foundation. During the awards ceremony, the Queen gave a speech.
The day then ended with the Queen and other present representatives from Childhood going to Wiesbaden to be welcomed there by Hesse's Prime Minister Volker Bouffier.

Wiesbaden's sky shines in sweden-blue for the visit of Queen Silvia - conversations in a personal atmosphere
Royal visit to the Hessian State Chancellery. Minister President of the State of Hesse Volker Bouffier and his wife Ursula greeted the Swedish Queen Silvia on Friday in front of a good 200 fence guests. The queen came to talk to Bouffier about her children's aid project.
200 royalists had found their way to the Kranzplatz to greet the German-born Silvia of Sweden in the state capital. According to the standards, a Swedish flag was unrolled and waved joyfully. Particular attention was drawn to a man with an original sports bag of the 1972 Olympic Games Munich.
In the State Chancellery the Queen were presented to the Hessian Ministers. Afterwards, she signed the guest book and continued with the Minister President and others for the purpose of her visit, the talk about her children's foundation.'
Prevent violence against children
Because of the tight schedule, Minister President Bouffier subsequently issued a press release alone. In it reported on the cordial atmosphere in which the discussion round took place. Bouffier commented on the content as follows: "The issue of violence against children has been preoccupying us in Hesse for many years. On this basis, Queen Silvia sought the conversation with us. The question that drives the Queen as well as the Hessian government is: "How can we help children who have been victims of violence and how can we prevent children from experiencing violence?"
Children often experience violence in family and friends
Bouffier made it clear in his remarks that it is legally difficult, in particular, because crimes against children are often committed at close social level. In Hesse, the network against violence has existed since 2003, in which different departments cooperate. The common goal is to create a legal situation that affected children do not have to testify several times to the deeds committed against them.

Madeleine will be at Gothenburg Book Fair on 27th September to tell about the book "Stella och hemligheten", in which she is one of the writers.
- The book fair will be Princess Madeleine's main focus during her visit, says Margareta Thorgren.
Exactly how long Princess Madeleine stays in Sweden, the court does not want to go out. However, Margareta Thorgren explains that it will be a shorter visit. It is because she is traveling alone while Chris and the kids stay in Florida.
The visit will also make Madeleine historic. She becomes the first royal to attend the Book Fair.
- The princess is really looking forward to attending the Book Fair.

Queen Silvia stayed in Gothenburg and visited today NetClean, a company which has cooperated with World Childhood Foundation for 15 years. NetClean develops one of the world’s leading technology solutions to protect businesses and organisations against child sexual abuse material.
Belga Image

On Thursday, September 12, the Queen, with the World Childhood Foundation, visited company Netclean Technologies, which works to stop child sexual abuse.
Netclean has developed a digital tool that is similar to an anti-virus program, but which instead of viruses can detect images and videos where children are subjected to sexual abuse. The tool is offered to organizations and companies that want to ensure that such material does not exist in employees' work computers. According to Netclean, one in a thousand employees has materials where children are subjected to sexual violence on their work computer.
Since 2015, Netclean also annually publishes a report on sexual offenses against children. The report provides an insight into how police and the judiciary in countries around the world work with these types of crimes. When Netclean started its operations, the World Childhood Foundation supported it for developing the new technology.
During the visit the Queen also received information about the Safer Society Group's other companies Griffeye and Paliscope.

More photos of queen Silvia yesterday.

With the overall aim of strengthening the tolerance of children online, Childhood has contributed to the development of the interactive board game "Parkgömmet" for children in primary school age. The game was launched this week and will now be distributed free of charge to all Swedish primary schools. At our birthday celebration yesterday, Chilhood's founder Queen Silvia was given the opportunity to test the game.
PARKGÖMMET was developed by a research team at @hogskolaniskovde in collaboration with the cultural foundation Change Attitude and consists of a physical board game and augmented reality (AR), when looking at the board game through a tablet or smartphone. It is similar to a classic treasure hunt where each player hides a treasure and there are clues to the hiding places. The clues players must be afraid of, so that no one else can find the treasure. During the course of the game, the children receive messages from an unknown person who tries to get them to reveal clues to where the treasure is hidden. They get to experience how it feels and how they react to common grooming techniques such as flattering, nagging and threatening.
The researchers in Skövde have had access to authentic chat logs from the network where children have been contacted for sexual purposes. The analysis of the chat logs has then been used as a starting point for being able to create gaming events without any scary or inappropriate content in the game itself. In contrast, the gaming events create a discussion base for follow-up teacher-led conversations that will raise awareness of risks online. These discussions can then be led by a teacher or educator.

Publishing house Bonnier Carlsen organizes the event/seminar on 27th September at 11.00-11.45 at Gothenburg Book Fair.

How do you take courage and say when something doesn't feel right? When Princess Madeleine makes her children's book debut, it is with a theme that, with the work of the World Childhood Foundation, engages her strongly: children's rights. One day friend Elena tells a terrible secret for Stella, something she can't tell anyone. But Elena's secret grinds like a heavy stone in Stella's stomach. What should she do?
Contributors: Madeleine Bernadotte, co-author Marie Oskarsson, publisher Ulrika Caperius, Paula Guillet De Monthoux, Secretary General of Childhood, and Anna Norlén, child psychologist. Moderator: Tara Moshizi, journalist.

There are over 80 events starting at 11.00 at the Fair program.

Svensk Damtidning tells that Madeleine landed to Sweden this morning.
There could also be a chaos at the Book Fair because there should be climate strikes both at the Fair and outdoors.
https://www.svenskdam.se/kungligt/ma...r-turbulensen/

Svensk Damtidning tells that there is some problems for Madeleine on her way to the Book Fair. The flight from Stockholm to Gothenburg is late. It takes about 35 minutes to get from Landvetter Airport to the Book Fair.
https://www.svenskdam.se/kungligt/ma...st-med-flyget/

Edit:
Madeleine landed to Gothenburg at 10.19, an hour late. Svensk Damtidning's reporter thinks that Madeleine must have had an escort from the airport since she got to the Fair in time. She spoke about the book "Stella och hemligheten" with co-author Marie Oskarsson, publisher Ulrika Caperius, Paula Guillet De Monthoux, Secretary General of Childhood, and Anna Norlén, child psychologist. The moderator was Tara Moshizi, journalist.
After the event in the Fair Madeleine visits a school to talk about the book with pupils.

Madeleine told to Svensk Damtidning that the family has not yet made a decision to move home - the fact is that they have not even reflected on that matter.
When asked how to plan, the answer was:
- We have not thought about how we should do with it, says Madeleine.
The kids in the classroom bombarded Madeleine with questions, ranging from "Are you a millionaire?" To "What is it like to be a princess?"
Princess Madeleine also told her that she has started reading her book to Princess Leonore, 5.
Madeleine is now flying directly home to Stockholm, and hopefully she will be able to meet the family before returning home to the children in Miami.

The book was created in collaboration with the World Childhood Foundation and is an attempt to prevent sexual abuse against children.
- We wanted to reach out to the children. They also have the right to bodily integrity. They have the right to say away, said Princess Madeleine at the Book Fair.
The book highlights different situations that a child may experience as an abuse. Everything from being hugged hard by an aunt to a serious sexual assault.
- It's basically about setting boundaries. That the children should find the strength to say, Princess Madeleine said.
Next year, Leonore turns 6 and will start school. Then the question is whether it will be in the US or Sweden. If she chooses to stay in Florida and put her daughter to school in the United States, Leonore, according to the succession order, risks losing her place in order to the throne.
A difficult decision that she has not yet taken a position on.
- We'll see. We don't really know yet, Princess Madeleine told Aftonbladet.

Queen Silvia attends today World Childhood Foundation's high-level meeting "Children & the digital world: Threats and Opportunities" at UN Headquarters in New York. In the evening queen Silvia and Madeleine attend World Childhood Foundation's Thank You Gala in New York.

On Tuesday, the US section of Queen Silvia's foundation Childhood together with, among other things, the UN Representation of Sweden hosts a meeting in the UN.
Queen Silvia is passionate about children's rights issues and at Tuesday's meeting, she is one of the keynote speakers. At the meeting, a new report on children's safety will also be presented online.
On Monday, when Expressen talks to Margareta Thorgren, Queen Silvia is on her way to New York.
After the UN meeting, Childhood holds a gala to mark that they have been around for 20 years. The gala is held at The Plaza hotel on the exclusive fifth avenue in Manhattan.
But it's not just work for Queen Silvia in the United States.
- In connection with the trip, the Queen plans to stay there for the weekend so she can meet her grandchildren. It is quite natural, after all, when you go on such a long trip.

“I want to give back children their childhood. I want to prevent abuse before it happens. Children’s wellbeing is everybody's business. That's why we are all here.” - H. M. Queen Silvia of Sweden

The sky-high price - for dinner with Silvia
Queen Silvia is in New York and hosts, among other things, a dinner late on Tuesday Swedish time. But it tastes like it costs - a lot.
If you want to sit best in the vicinity of the Swedish royal, you must be prepared to lose weight - equivalent to just over SEK 1 million.
On Tuesday, the US section of Queen Silvia's Childhood Foundation will host a UN meeting in New York. This together with, among other things, the Swedish UN representation.
As is well known, Silvia is passionate about children's rights issues, and at Tuesday's meeting, she is one of the keynote speakers. At the same time, a report on children's safety is presented online.
After the UN meeting, ie the night of Wednesday Swedish time, Childhood holds a gala to mark the foundation's existence for 20 years. The gala is held at the exclusive Plaza Hotel at Central Park in Manhattan.
The proceeds for the charity dinner will certainly go to Childhood, but it should be said immediately that there are no ordinary pub prices if you want to chop in to the food in the company of the Swedish Queen.
Prices start at the equivalent of just over SEK 10,000 (thousand dollars), and extend to just over one million (USD 100,000).
Åsa Andreasson Åkerström, Communications Manager at Childhood:
- Childhood celebrates 20 years this year. We have noticed this on a few different occasions. Now it's the US's turn to do the same on this gala. It works a little differently in the US. You raise a lot of money for the non-profit sector in this way, which is why the gala is kept.
Åsa Andreasson Åkerström also says that there is an award - Thank you Award. In recent years the award has been awarded by Princess Madeleine.

Queen Silvia talked with Expressen
How does it feel that Childhood celebrates 20 years?
- It feels incredibly nice I must say. Then it was very difficult to talk about these issues, as I said in my speech as well. Then I wished there was a meto campaign for children. But there wasn't, no one wanted to listen and no one wanted to see these children who were so vulnerable. And also not see what happens to the Internet and the dangers of the Internet but also child pornographic material, no one wanted to react.
- Now we are here at the UN and this is the fifth time together with Childhood. I think this is wonderful and shows that it is important that we can get more and more groups and organizations but also the private sphere to work together. That is what is so important that we cooperate.
During the Queen's visit to the United States, a stop is also made in Miami, Florida, where Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill live with their three children. The queen says that there is no time for more than an intensive meeting with the grandchildren.
- Far too little time. It is clear that I have tried to squeeze it. The princess could not come to the UN today, unfortunately it was not possible. But she's here tonight at the gala dinner. Then we go together and hope for some nice moments with the grandchildren. Then I have to go home again. It will be very short but dear.
