Victoria said at her speech among other things:
And soon, I hope, a truly inclusive business will also be a norm:
A fashion industry where people from different backgrounds can be seen; on catwalks and in campaigns – but also in the management teams.
A fashion industry where there is room for all sizes.
A fashion industry that liberates rather than limits.
I know that many of you listening today are working hard to achieve this; breaking new ground, challenging old standards in everything from recruiting to marketing.
As a proud wearer of Swedish fashion, I follow this development with great interest.

Victoria said at her speech among other things:
"We have great challenges ahead of us. In the waters around Antarctica, there are huge amounts of krill, lanterns and squid, among other things. They are in turn food for the earth's by far the largest concentration of marine mammals and seabirds. They are efficient ecosystems - but also fragile. sensitive to disturbances of climate change, overfishing and pollution. Antarctica depends on us - and we on Antarctica. The future of these species concerns us all."

Victoria had today a digital meeting with professor Johan Rockström from Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.
Victoria inaugurates the ISU World Figure Skating Championships at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm on 24th March.
- Yes, the Crown Princess will be physically present in the Globe. There will be an inauguration ceremony with the figure skaters and then the Crown Princess will give an inauguration speech. The Crown Princess will be tested before she goes to the Globe. And she will always be at a proper distance from the participants, says Fredrik Pallin, responsible for the press.
Svensk Damtidning points out that Victoria inaugurated the European Figure Skating Championships in 2015, and then she brought Estelle with her. Will we see Estelle in the Globe this time too?
Pallin says that he has no information about that. But it is quite complicated to attend this year, precisely because of the corona-safe bubble. And the Championships is held without an audience.

Victoria will not be present at Ericsson Globe at the inauguration of the ISU World Figure Skating Championships on 24th March, as first planned.

Although the symptoms are mild, the assessment is made, with regard to the contestants and the organizer, that the Crown Princess will not be present on site at the inauguration on Wednesday. The Crown Princess will instead participate digitally during the inauguration with a recorded greeting.

Isn't Victoria and Daniel for that matter, supposed to be recovering from Covid? They must be one of the hard-working CP couples having picked up a lot of the King and Queen's duties as well.
Are we allowed to tell them to chill and put their feet up for a week?
