About Victoria's visit to SIPRI

Victoria's dear reunion with her beloved mentor
Crown Princess Victoria continues her mission with her strong commitment.
Now she focuses on peace and conflict issues and made an important visit.
It was a nice reunion with a man who meant a lot to her.
SIPRI, Stockholm's International Peace Research Institute, works with issues of peace and conflict with a focus on disarmament. During the visit of Crown Princess Victoria,there was of course a great focus on the pandemic we live in and how future epidemics can be prevented.
It was a radiantly beautiful crown princess who for the day was dressed in autumn colors and tight hair when she visited SIPRI.
Already on the steps of the Peace Research Institute in Solna, she was welcomed by its chairman Jan Eliasson, 80, and deputy head Joakim Vaverka, 48. It is always a dear reunion when she and Jan, who is the Crown Princess' close friend and mentor, meet.

Today (and tomorrow) Victoria attends 2020 Virtual Keystone Dialogue, meeting with SeaBOS (Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship).
Victoria's opening speech, she said among other things:
Ever since the very first Keystone Dialogue in the Maldives, where some of you were present, I have followed your work closely. I receive regular briefings on the progress of the different task forces. And I am proud to be a part of this unique initiative.
Over the past four years, you, the members of SeaBOS, have demonstrated real leadership. You have had the courage to listen to science. And the integrity to let that knowledge guide your decisions. Even when that has meant challenging standard business practices. (...)
Dear members of SeaBOS:
I recognize the greatness and complexity of your task.
I have the utmost respect for the difficult decisions that you have had to make and to gain acceptance for.
And I am well aware of all the hard work that you have put in – from science and from business – to come this far.
However, at this point, I need to stress how urgent it is that we keep moving ahead, on all fronts.
This is not the time to postpone important decisions.
This is not the time to duck away from responsibility.
This is the time to set ambitious and time-bound goals.
The time to act – and to turn the ship around. Before it is too late.
So please, let us show the rest of the world that this can be done. And let us make the most of these coming two days.

Victoria participated in the 2020 Virtual Keystone Dialogue also today.

Court website:
On Monday 5 October and Tuesday 6 October, the Crown Princess participated in the 2020 Virtual Keystone Dialogue.
Representatives from the world's ten largest seafood companies, as well as experts and researchers in the field attended the meeting.
On Monday, the meeting began with chairman Shigeru Ito welcoming and then the Crown Princess spoke.
In her speech, the Crown Princess emphasized the importance of SeaBOS and the cooperation between the fishing companies to achieve sustainable fishing:
"Ladies and gentlemen, leaders of the global seafood industry:
You are used to working towards clear and ambitious goals.
You know the power of honouring your commitments.
And you are not afraid to exercise leadership.
I am convinced that if anyone can achieve a global transformation towards sustainable seafood production and a healthy ocean, you are the group to do it.
And if you do that – if you show the world that this can really be done – I know that others are going to follow."
SeaBOS aims to make the world fishing industry work in a more sustainable way. At the 2020 Virtual Keystone Dialogue, issues such as IUU Fishing (Illegal, Unreported, Unregulated), how companies can work to reduce plastic in the oceans, climate change, antibiotic use and further work within SeaBOS are discussed.
At the meeting, the actors agreed on timed goals for the various areas discussed.

On Thursday, October 8, the Crown Princess participated in the inauguration of a sculpture by Astrid Lindgren at Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital in Solna.
The Crown Princess began her visit to the children's hospital by being shown the hospital school and play therapy. The hospital school is a classroom where children who are admitted to the hospital receive help with school work.
Together with Maija, 9 years old, the Crown Princess then inaugurated the Astrid Lingren sculpture. The sculpture, which was produced by the artist Hertha Hillfon (1921-2013), is located at the main entrance to Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital and is a replica of the original that stands outside Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital's old premises.
In conclusion, the Crown Princess visited the hospital's children's library together with Maija.

Svensk Damtidning was with Victoria today, an article with a short video:

What a timing! And what earrings! Crown Princess Victoria rolled in front of Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital in Solna at exactly the same moment as the Swedish Academy announced that this year's Nobel Prize in Literature has gone to the American poet Louise Glück.
In Victoria's ears, Pippi Longstocking dangled in silver, and the joy of reading, at least indirectly, was also the theme for today's visit here at Karolinska. The assignment was to unveil and inaugurate the new bronze sculpture by Astrid Lindgren who will now meet all the children on the sidewalk outside the hospital library.
As a sidekick throughout the visit, Victoria had eight-year-old Maija, and they chatted about a bit of everything. Like Maja likes to ride, for example - just like Victoria's own eight-year-old Estelle:
- Estelle also loves to ride. That's all she does ... if she can choose herself, Victoria said.
Astrid Lindgren meant a lot to the Crown Princess, both as the unforgettable person she was and for the immortal stories and characters she created.
- Astrid Lindgren was very brave. She dared to take on the difficult topics: illness, death, orphaned children, mothers in heaven, the Crown Princess said this summer in the newspaper Vi Läser's big interview.
Victoria also revealed that she often thought that Astrid Lindgren's books were awful, and that it is probably only now, as an adult and as a mother of two, that she understands her darkness.
Now Victoria had to visit the hospital school, where Charlotte Elf told about the activity, and then Victoria stepped into the children's library, which was a given goal on a day like this.
As a mother, Victoria has read Astrid Lindgren again: "You experience your childhood, it's fun!"
Then waited a little mingling with bubbles and some very delicious pastries ...
... and then Victoria got a cool pink-orange balloon for Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar, a guaranteed success at home at Haga.
The aide-de-camp took care of both the handbag and the flower balloon.
Right now it is Carin Ellström who is the aide-de-camp on duty.
Astrid Lindgren's grandchild Olle Nyman (far left) was with us this afternoon when his grandmother was honored. Victoria was received by the hospital director Björn Zoêga and by Svante Norgren, Sanna Murray-Salander, Henrik Almkvist and Charlotte Elf from Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital.

Last year, the Stockholm Region received a donation request from the Foundation for Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital, claiming that they wanted to donate a statue depicting Astrid Lindgren to the children's hospital bearing her name.
On Thursday, a little over a year later, it was time for the statue to be unveiled and inaugurated, and of course Crown Princess Victoria, the patron of the Foundation for Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital, was present.
The Crown Princess wore the day in honor of Pippi Longstocking earrings, a subtle tribute to the author.
The Crown Princess first got a little tour before she unveiled the sculpture together with a girl named Maija.
- First she got a small tour, then it was the inauguration of the sculpture together with Maija. Then the visit ended with a visit to the children's library, which is also part of Astrid Lindgren children's hospital, says the court's information officer Ulrika Näsholm.

This week, the new sculpture was inaugurated at Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital in Solna.
None other than Victoria was present. And what a radiant mood our lovely crown princess was in.
The children's well-being is close to the heart of the Crown Princess, so when the question came, it felt obvious. She also received help from Maija Sinisalo, 9, who is being cared for at the children's hospital.

Karolinska University Hospital about Victoria at the Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital.

Astrid Lindgren in focus when the Crown Princess visited Karolinska
Crown Princess Victoria arrived at Karolinska in front of curious eyes. The popular sculpture by Astrid Lindgren was to be inaugurated. The Crown Princess received expert help with the ribbon cutting - by 8-year-old Maija.
Svante Norgren warmly welcomes the Crown Princess to Karolinska University Hospital.
Crown Princess Victoria visits Karolinska again. This time to inaugurate a sculpture by Astrid Lindgren and to listen to the important work carried out by the Pedagogical Resource Center.
The hospital clowns had a chat with the Crown Princess. They gave the Crown Princess a balloon flower which she promised to go home and water.
The Crown Princess and Maija tie up the ribbon together and officially inaugurate the sculpture by Astrid Lindgren.
The sculpture was created by the artist Hertha Hillfon and is located at Eugeniavägen 23. The sculpture was donated by the Foundation for Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital. The sculpture is liked by many, especially by our pediatric patients.
Passers-by took the opportunity to visit the Crown Princess. They got a happy wave back!
The Crown Princess and Maija are reading a book together in the children's library. The book choice was "Pettsson tältar" - a favorite book by Maija!
- It was fun and exciting to meet the Crown Princess. Among other things, she asked me about my favorite books and what I think is fun to do, says a happy Maija after the visit.

Victoria attended yesterday the meeting of Crown Princess Margareta's Veteran Reserve Foundation. Victoria chairs the foundation.
Crown Princess Margareta's Veteran Reserve Foundation supports objectives relating to voluntary defence work.

Due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, members of the Royal Family visit Sweden's 21 counties, at the initiative of H.M. The King.

Victoria arrived to Västerås on the county visit to Västmanland and was welcomed by governor Minoo Akhtarzand at the Västerås Castle.
Daniel should have come with Victoria, but Victoria said:
- Unfortunately, Daniel is not with me today, he has a bit of a cold and is at home in these times.
- Prince Daniel is unfortunately not with at Västmanland today because he has a cold, an autumn cold. With regard to those who participate during the day, the Prince has chosen to stay at home, says Ulrika Näsholm at the court's information department.
The crown princess will meet with representatives of, among others, healthcare and the business community to get an idea of how the corona pandemic has affected these areas, and how the crisis has been handled.
- We are very happy that the royal family has taken this initiative and that you go out to us, among other things, to see how we are doing, says governor Minoo Akhtarzand.
While governor Minoo Akhtarzand presents the county's work during the corona pandemic, the crown princess listens and makes notes carefully. She also asks several questions.

It was when the important and long-planned County visit to Västmanland began today that it became clear that something had happened. Crown Princess Victoria arrived alone - and the reason is that Prince Daniel has become ill:
- The prince has a mild cold and therefore refrains from visiting today. Due to his cold symptoms, the Prince has been tested for covid-19. The result was negative, says Johan Tegel at the court's information department to Svensk Damtidning.

On Thursday, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel were to visit Västmanland as part of their visits to all counties in Sweden during the corona pandemic.
But Prince Daniel had to cancel.
- He has an autumn cold and has chosen to stay at home, says Ulrika Näsholm, information officer at the court and continues:
- But consideration for all participants here, he has chosen not to participate.
Prince Daniel had a cold "during the week", says Ulrika Näsholm.
Can you exclude corona?
- Yes, he has been tested and he does not have corona.
Margareta Thorgren states that the negative test result came on Wednesday, and that the prince chose to stay at home due to the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations.
- It is a mild cold, says Thorgren.

Suddenly Marianne met a princess: "She was most adorable"

It was a happy and relaxed Victoria who arrived at Västerås Castle on Thursday morning. She was here to find out how the pandemic has affected healthcare and companies in the county.
Actually, the Crown Princess would have come here in the company of Prince Daniel. But he had a cold and therefore had to stay at home.
- It is a common autumn cold he has. It will be easy like that during the autumn when you have children at preschool, laughs the Crown Princess.
- But we must stick to the recommendations and continue to be careful, she adds.
The royal family has these days started to travel around the country to update themselves on the covid-19 situation in the counties. On Thursday, Västmanland was on the schedule as the first stop on the tour for Crown Princess Victoria.
After a visit to the castle when, among others, the infection control doctor told about the situation in healthcare, the Crown Princess visited Västmanland's Theater and Mälardalen University.
- The Crown Princess' visit means a lot to us. It feels good that the royal family wants to get an overall picture of the situation in the country, says Governor Minoo Akhtarzand.
How does it feel to go out into the country again to meet people on the spot?
- It's fun, of course even if it's not the same as before the pandemic. You must not be social in the same way as before and we must also continue to think about keeping our distance and being careful. But there will also be other times again in the future, says the Crown Princess.

Court updated to its article about Victoria's visit Victoria's words:
"Yesterday I visited Västmanland County where I had the opportunity to meet people who told me how the covid-19 pandemic affects various activities.
I am impressed by how well they have, in a pragmatic and effective way, collaborated in the county to meet the challenges that the pandemic brought with it. There is an enormous force in the ability to come together.
During the day, we were once again reminded of the importance of continuing to persevere and persevere - and learn from the pandemic for future crises. We must not forget that we are still in the pandemic and how actors in different sectors of society are fighting for their survival."

The corona crisis has hit the country hard.
The royal family wants to do everything they can to show their gratitude and appreciation to all of Sweden's counties.
That is why Victoria was in Västerås.

Today, Crown Princess Victoria visited us to talk about how we have worked during covid-19.

Mälardalen University at its website
Recently, Crown Princess Victoria visited MDH to gain deeper knowledge about how the university and students experience the corona pandemic.
Vice-chancellor Paul Pettersson had the privilege of welcoming Crown Princess Victoria and Minoo Akhtarzand, Västmanland's Governor, to MDH. Together with Kim Jansson, chairman of Mälardalen's Student Union, Anna Johansson, assistant professor and head of department, and Sofia Norling, security strategist, Paul was able to tell about how MDH has since January worked to deal with what would later develop into a pandemic.
The Crown Princess showed great commitment and curiosity during the visit. Kim said that most students feel that the dialogue with the teachers works well, even though they are not seen physically. Sofia said that MDH has been working in staff mode since March and that we are well equipped to handle if there are renewed cluster outbreaks. Anna told from the teacher's perspective that the transition to digital forms has been challenging, but also provided new opportunities. For example, there are students who feel that it has become easier to absorb knowledge when lecture halls have been replaced by recorded lectures that they have the opportunity to see several times.
- I am proud of the work we have shown today. We have adapted, and continue to adapt to the current situation while learning along the way. I do not think we will ever go back completely to what teaching and research looked like before the corona pandemic, we will find new ways forward and we could tell the Crown Princess today, says Paul Pettersson, vice-chancellor.

Victoria said at her visit to Västerås:
- The big purpose of being here is to hear how the corona pandemic has affected the situation in Västmanland. To meet different actors and hear how they have been affected. We have received a description of the situation from various actors, who have told us how they have responded to the pandemic.
Victoria was very impressed by the resilience the people of Västmanland have showed during the crisis.
- These are very strong stories. In the briefs, it is the whole society that is affected. They have been pragmatic and but also flexible in how they handled the crisis. When the crisis escalated, it was handled in a pragmatic way. That's the only thing you can do. It is a process you do not know the end of. You have to deal with it now and then, at the same time as you have a long-term mindset.
- Like many, I am very tired of these video meetings. Of course it's nice to meet people. But it is always with that in mind that you have to keep your distance, be careful and actually remember that we are in a pandemic. It is not in that way you wish you would make visits and be really close to each other and social.

Today, Crown Princess Victoria visited Västmanlands Teater. We talked about how the cultural sector, from the freelancers, is on its knees during the pandemic. How crooked the current restrictions are. How our business did in the spring, how we sat the whole theater and personally called the audience about the repurchases, how we had to change digitally and about our gigs for nursing homes. But also that the efforts made by the state, region and municipality still mean that we will cope with the crisis. Everything at a corona safe distance. The Crown Princess was interested, experienced and really fun to talk to.

The Crown Princess leaves the theater after an hour of intense conversation about culture & Covid-19.

Last Friday 20th November Victoria called Christina Tallberg, the Chairman of Pensionärernas riksorganisation, PRO (the Swedish National Pensioners’ Organisation), Sweden's largest meeting place for pensioners.
Tallberg tells that Victoria wanted to know how PRO's 320,000 members are doing during the pandemic: "She was impressed with how we fought during the year and wanted to send a warm greeting to all members".
Victoria called PRO in March when the covid-19 started and this was a follow-up call.
Tallberg says that Victoria is a very empathetic person. She showed great understanding for how the PRO members have struggled during the year. They talked about how important caring within PRO is now, when many would otherwise be alone. Tallberg says that Victoria wanted to greet and say that she is thinking of them now, when there is concern before Advent, Lucia, Christmas and New Year about how people will find joy.
