Since you wrote out the title of Baroness von Blixen-Finecke I'd like to point out that Charlotte Ramel is also a baroness by both birth and marriage. She named her jewellery company after her ancestor Ebba Brahe who was married to Count Jakob De la Gardie.

On Tuesday, October 1, the Queen attended a high-level UN meeting in New York on child safety online.
The World Childhood Foundation USA and Sweden's UN representation hosted the conference Children & the Digital World: Threats and Opportunities. During the day, a new report on child safety was launched online, prepared by the Telecommunication Union and UNESCO's Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development.
The report summarizes available material on the risks of children online and suggests how their online safety can be promoted.
The Queen was one of three keynote speakers at the conference and in her speech, the Queen said:
”20 years ago, Childhood was founded. My hope then was that I could close the foundation after a few years. However, the sexual abuse and exploitation of children remains a major universal problem and Childhood continues to pioneer solutions addressing it."
During the evening, a charity gala was held on the occasion of the World Childhood Foundation's 20th anniversary in which the Queen and Princess Madeleine participated.

King Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, Victoria, Daniel and Sofia attend on 20th November at an expert roundtable organized by the World Childhood Foundation and Global Child Forum, on the potential and limits of artificial intelligence (AI) to help combat online child sexual abuse. There will be a photo pool only at the beginning of the meeting
Kalender - Sveriges Kungahus

The king and queen invite an expert meeting on how AI can prevent sexual abuse of children
A software that can detect and stop grooming of children in real time.
A program that can analyze and categorize millions of images in minutes, including finding child sexual abuse material.
A tool that from incomprehensible noise in a video file can extract audio conversations and transcribe the text so that one can identify and rescue the children in the movies.
All of this is possible with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI), but there is still much to do before the potential AI offers can be fully exploited to prevent sexual abuse of children. To explore this in more detail, Childhood and the Global Child Forum jointly organize a roundtable meeting on AI and children's safety online on November 20 at the Royal Palace. The hosts of the meeting are King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.

King Carl Gustaf gave the opening speech, he said among other things
Just last week, a conference on a related topic was held at the Vatican, in the presence of His Holiness Pope Franciscus.
The theme of the conference was how to promote child safety in a digital age, and Her Majesty was one of the speakers.
This year also marks another milestone: 30 years ago, in 1989, the World Wide Web was born. It was the start of a digital transformation, a great shift that has made our world better in many ways.
As we all know, it has also brought new challenges. Not least when it comes to protecting the rights and the wellbeing of children - online and offline.
Today, we commemorate these two anniversaries by shining a light on a most urgent issue: How can we use artificial intelligence as a catalyst for child safety online?
New technology in itself is not good or bad. However, as we all know, it can be used for good or bad purposes.
H.M. Konungens välkomsttal vid AI Roundtable, Kungl. Slottet, onsdagen den 20 november 2019 - Sveriges Kungahus

Queen Silvia said at her speech among other things:
This year marks 20 years since I founded World Childhood Foundation and ten years since my family and I founded Global Child Forum.
I wanted this year to reflect one of the main challenges – and opportunities - that we see in this day and age: the role of technology, including artificial intelligence.
So my wish was for Childhood to highlight child safety online and for our foundations to work together. That was the starting point which led us all to gather here today.
This is a topic that I have felt strongly about ever since the first big case of dissemination of child sexual abuse material was revealed in Sweden in 1992.

ROYAL: Die schwedische Königsfamilie bei der Konferenz über die Anwendung von AI bei der Sicherheit für Kindern im Internet in Stockholm teil

The court has today decided to name the day as Global Child Forum conference.
On Wednesday, November 20, the Royal Couple, Crown Princess Couple and Princess Sofia attended the Global Child Forum 2019 at the Royal Palace. During the day, experts lectured and talked about how artificial intelligence can help fight child sexual abuse.
On site in the Bernadotte Library, there were about 40 Swedish and international experts from the business community, academia, law enforcement agencies and child protection organizations. During the day, lectures were held interspersed with roundtables to discuss how child safety online can be increased.
The king began the conference by giving a speech:
The conference concluded with a speech by the Queen.
The conference was organized by the Global Child Forum and the World Childhood Foundation, which the Queen founded in 1999.

Tomorrow, the anniversary celebration will kick off for Queen Silvia's children's rights organization World Childhood Foundation. This is celebrated with a big tuxedo dinner at the Royal Palace, with the King, Queen, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia as hosts. The boards of directors and Childhood managers from the USA, Brazil, Germany and Sweden are in Stockholm and are all on the guest list.
The plan was that Svensk Damtidning would cover this dinner, but today suddenly came the message that the plans had changed at the last moment. Photographers are not admitted to the dinner.
Svensk Damtidning has been in contact with the court which has no further information on the background to the decision.
- It was planned that TT's photographer would be in place, but after a few rounds during the day, that photo opportunity was removed, says Ulrika Näsholm at the court's information department.

Queen Silvia and Madeleine attend this evening t the delivery of the first Childhood Award.

Among the 200 guests are both Childhood's collaborators and Princess Madeleine's girlfriends, from Louise Thott to Katti von Horn. And of course a handful of the queen's close friends.
The guests started arriving in just before 6 pm and now the atmosphere is high here at Telia's head office in the giant gallery Mall of Scandinavia in Solna where the party is held. When Princess Madeleine arrived, she shone up like a sun.
How does it feel to be home?
- Oh, it's fun! she said emphatically.
The Queen welcomed everyone and so it was the premiere of the trailer for the new documentary series on Childhood to be broadcast in TV3 and where we get to follow the Queen and Madeleine during their work.
This is the grand finale of Childhood's 20th anniversary and tonight's highlight comes just before half past eight. Then Princess Madeleine will give out the new big Childhood Award that wants to draw attention to the people in Sweden who are crucial in keeping children safe, but whose work is not always visible most.
The three nominees are:
Andreas Grym, an IT crime investigator at the Gothenburg Police, who has successfully identified hundreds of prosecutors online and tracked down suspected perpetrators, leading to convictions in grooming cases across the country.
Eva Thored, investigator of Internet-related sexual abuse against children and child interrogation leaders at the Police in the Mitt region.
Maria Blomgren Rydell, team leader at Barnahus Fyrbodal. Through her dedication, Maria has contributed to the development of the local Children's Home.
- We want to highlight invisible child rights fighters, there are many who work daily to protect children from violence and sexual abuse, but who rarely receive recognition, says Åsa Andreasson Åkerström at Childhood.

Queen Silvia began her speech by telling us how the foundation came about 20 years ago. She was careful to thank the key people who helped along the way, but also talked about her own thoughts about the foundation's birth.
- It was a little sensitive because it goes without saying that I did not want to interfere with something that might have been political. I haven't studied law, so I couldn't. But I thought this is a deep humanitarian issue and that I can help with, said Queen Silvia.
- I could draw attention to this issue that nobody wanted to address. Nobody wanted to talk about it, nobody wanted to see it either, and it's not just in Sweden, of course, but it is in the whole world. There are countries that still do not want to talk or see.
Queen Silvia continued to thank Childhood and the Foundation's partners for the work done over the years.
But after that it became difficult to maintain the formality. The royal confessed that she had been influenced by the stories of the nominees from the work on sexual offenses against children.
- I have a little trouble speaking after listening now, but it was important. I have a written speech, but I don't think I need it, said Queen Silvia.
This year, the World Childhood Foundation has released the Childhood Award for the first time.
This year's winner was Andreas Grym, an IT crime investigator at the Gothenburg police. Anders Grym has identified hundreds of online plaintiffs and tracked down suspected perpetrators. This has led to several convictions about grooming around Sweden.

Princess Madeleine about last night:

"So exciting we launched “Childhood Guardians” in Stockholm yesterday! A new approach to expanding World Childhood’s reach to new audiences and bringing more innovation and new ideas to protect kids from abuse."

About the TV serie about World Childhood Foundation

New series about Queen Silvia and Childhood to Viaplay
Queen Silvia - who founded the World Childhood Foundation 20 years ago - has a deep commitment to the foundation that works to prevent violence and sexual abuse of children. The new Viaplay original "Barnens drottning" (The Children's Queen) gives a unique look into the Queen's daily work with Childhood and in exclusive interviews with both her and Princess Madeleine, we get to see the royals much closer than we are used to. The documentary comes to NENT Group's Viaplay streaming service in the spring of 2020.
The World Childhood Foundation was founded in 1999 by Queen Silvia to safeguard children's right to a safe childhood and improve living conditions for children at risk of violence or sexual abuse. Viaplay's new series provides a unique insight into Queen Silvia's daily work and tireless commitment to Childhood.
Following the Queen's welcome speech at award ceremony of the Childhood Prize, a first sneak peek from the documentary series was shown. Among other things, Barnens drottning offers exclusive interviews with both the Queen and Princess Madeleine - who, too, is deeply involved in Childhood since 2006.
- With Barnens drottning, we hope to be able to shed light on a taboo topic and hopefully raise awareness that this is happening to a much greater extent than we think. I think many Swedes do not know what an incredibly important effort Queen Silvia, Princess Madeleine and Childhood make - not only in Sweden but also globally. We are proud to have been given the confidence to portray their work, says Filippa Wallestam at NENT Group.
In the series, viewers also get to meet a host of other enthusiasts who work to push down the statistics. Police, researchers, doctors and people who have been sexually abused as children tell in the documentary series about their involvement.

Queen Silvia has recorded a video for parents, shared by Childhood.
https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=535475287400552

She says:

I think about the children in the special situation we are in now, children are even more exposed and vulnerable than usual. Maybe not for the coronavirus itself, but for its consequences. I turn directly to you as an adult. I want to ask you to see, really see, all the children that are in your vicinity. Maybe the child is exposed to the adults' concerns about an uncertain future? Maybe the child is subjected to domestic violence and abuse? Maybe the child is subject to abuse or grooming on the internet? Ask them, "How are you?" "Is there anything you're worried about?" "Would you tell me?" "You should know, you're not alone." "I want to be a support for you!" A safe adult reduces the risk of a child being ill. Your support is more important now than ever. You can make a difference not only for the moment, but for the life of a child.
