Victoria visited today Gripsholm Castle and unveiled a portrait of her, which Nationalmusei Vänner (The Friends of the Nationalmuseum) donated to the National Portrait Collection. It was Victoria's 40th birthday gift, taken by photographer Thron Ullberg at Gustav III's Pavilion at Haga Park. Victoria said that she hadn't seen it before this event, and she got her own copy to take home to Haga Palace.

What a great portrait of Victoria! Here a good photo of it. The Nationalmuseum tells at their press release, that Thron Ullberg photographed Victoria at Gustav III's Pavilion, which Victoria is very fond of. The Crown Princess is shown in the role of the heir to the Throne, with her eyes attached to the future. Thron Ullberg (born 1969) is one of Sweden's leading portrait photographers. He started reading art history, but soon went to the photography. Ullberg often works with large format cameras and traditional negatives that he digitally processes, a sign of the love of the old photographic craft.

Photographer Thron Ullberg told at the unveiling of Victoria's portrait about taking it at Gustav III's Pavilion:
- The only gaffe was that I was holding a small fog machine so that it would be like a little mist at the photo. I told my assistant to put it on. And when he started it there came a bang, Thron Ullberg said.
It became a big bang, which made both crown princess Victoria and Thron Ullberg to jump. However, the Security Service's bodyguards got probably most scared.
- A real icebreaker, exclaimed Victoria and said:
- This is a great gift. But also a nice experience to be part of. Then it's a great honor to ... hang, sit or stand or how you say now, among the others in the collection.

Inaugural speech maybe? Stockholm will host Europride in 2018 and might want to ask her to hold the inaugural speech?

I also thought of that, and it would be cool! Or be the protector of the event, maybe, or both? But she is meeting volunteers, so I don't know?

You're right. Would be more probable for her to meet with members of the board if she was to have a part in it.

I thought so, but let's hope she will get a role for next year.

"It was a amazingly personal and nice meeting with HRH Crown Princess", says Jimmy for QX. "We were invited to the Palace because we have worked for 20 years with Stockholm Pride and the Crown Princess was very warmhearted and wanted to hear more about us, our stories about Hbtq and how the Stockholm Pride and the Hbtq community has changed during these years."

Completely down to earth, the Swedish heir to the throne did not travel by private jet, but came in a regular flight - from Stockholm to Munich, from Munich to Leipzig. And it happened like to many other passengers: The plane to Leipzig was 45 minutes late.

Victoria visited today Forum för Levande Historia (The Living History Forum). The court organized in collaboration with the Forum a seminar initiated by Victoria and Daniel in connection with the Holocaust Memorial Day.
Victoria was welcomed by Ingrid Lomfors, director of the Living History Forum, and then she received an introduction to ongoing exhibitions like "Alla människor! – Om rättigheter och lika värde och Gulag: det farfar inte berättade." (All People! - About rights and equal value and Gulag: what grandfather did not tell). During the tour, Victoria met a high school class who had just completed a two-hour education. On the government's mission, the Living History Forum is conducting educational efforts on various forms of racism and intolerance in history and today.
In a conference hall, the Living History Forum's staff had gathered and Victoria was told about the activities, including how they turn to students and teachers with web-based courses, and the Per Anger Prize, awarded each year to someone who has made great humanitarian and democracy promoting efforts.
The Living History Forum is a Swedish public authority commissioned to work with issues related to tolerance, democracy and human rights, using the Holocaust and other crimes against humanity as its starting point.

Victoria visited Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) on Tuesday to get information about current research on local, regional and international water issues.
Juha Salonsaari, water coordinator and project manager of Stockholm City, and Linda Svensson, Limnologist of Solna City, told about the municipality's interest and responsibility for the water of Brunnsviken. They discussed also about Mälaren's environmental status.
During the second session of the afternoon, Kristina Gjerde from the International Nature Conservation Union, IUCN, Carl Folke (SRC) and Henrik Österblom (SRC) spoke about the management of the world's oceans.
The day was rounded off with a report of the situation on the Keystone Dialogues and SeaBOS initiative.
In order to cope with the global challenges facing the marine ecosystems, researchers at Stockholm Resilience Center have initiated a global coalition with several of the world's largest seafood companies. The initiative is called Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS)
The initiative has been talked and worked about in a series of meetings between researchers and companies. The Crown princess has participated in these meetings, as in the Maldives in November 2016, in Japan April 2017, Stockholm May 2017 and New York June 2017.

Victoria visits on 7th March Sotenäs Symbioscentrum and Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management.

A couple of weeks ago Mats Abrahamsson, Deputy Mayor of Sotenäs Municipality, was told that the Crown Princess wanted to visit the symbiosis center in Sotenäs.
- Because she is interested in the environment, the court contacted the symbiosis center and the municipality, says Mats Abrahamsson.
He tells that the Crown Princess has heard about symbiosis centers and has been interested in learning more about their activities.
The visit was first planned to 20th February but was postponed due to prince Henrik's funeral.
Mats Abrahamsson tells that they are used to receiving visits to symbiosis center, from colleges, universities and ministers. But that the crown princess comes will be something extra.
- That the crown princess wanted to come, we think it's fun, of course. We are happy and proud of it. We feel we really have something to show up, he says.
- It's clearly exciting, and it's a bit tingling, but it's supposed to do that. We are really looking forward to this.
He tells that he has met the Crown Princess once before and doesn't feel so nervous about the visit - on the other hand, when he was informed there will be a royal visit, he realized that he needed to buy new clothes.
Bohusläningen newspaper writes that he went at one of the local stores in Kungshamn to buy a new suit.
- I have bought something new, I have. I'm going to tog up, says Mats Abrahamsson to Bohusläningen.

She will receive information about the environmental work carried out by the actovity, including test beds with algae and salmon farming. We warmly welcome the Crown Princess to our beautiful municipality!"
Victoria meets during the following weeks Wallenberg Academy Fellows. They are Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation's investment in young researchers.
Since the program started in 2012, 174 young researchers have become Wallenberg Academy Fellows.

The purpose of these investments is to boost Sweden as a research nation by retaining the greatest talents in the country and by recruiting young international researchers to Swedish universities. Via an integral mentor program, they also have an opportunity to strengthen their scientific leadership and better utilize their research results.
Wallenberg Academy Fellows provides the best young researchers with long-term resources so that they can concentrate on their research. The program, which focuses on researchers in the natural sciences, social sciences, engineering and technology, medicine and the humanities, also contributes to increased internationalization of the Swedish research environment.

The Wallenberg Foundations are in tight cooperation with the royal family.
Queen Silvia received "Queen Silvia's Foundation for Research and Training" as a gift from three Wallenberg foundations on her 50th birthday in 1993. The same foundations have then filled up with SEK 5 million each at Queen's 60th and 70th birthday.
When the King turned 50 in 1996, the Wallenberg family foundations set up the "King Carl XVI Gustaf's Foundation for Research and Training". Also here was filled with SEK 5 million at the 60th birthday and probably also on the king's 70th birthday.
At Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling's banns of marriage in 2010, it was time for Victoria to have a foundation from the Wallenberg family. SEK 10 million became the starting capital of "Crown Princess Victoria's Foundation for Scientific Research and Training".
All three are managed by the Wallenbergs, and in its boards are representatives of the family together with their respective royals.
Foundation Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg's Memorial Fund is a founding partner of Generation Pep.
Already in 1972, when Gustaf VI Adolf turned 90, H.M. King's Wallenberg Fund was founded with money from Wallenberg family foundations.
