Victoria gives the opening remarks on 15th December at the global launch of 2020 Human Development Report, ‘The Next Frontier: Human Development and the Anthropocene’.
The new 2020 Human Development Report (HDR) looks at how humanity can navigate this new age, unpacking the relationships between people and the planet and showing how our impacts on the Earth interact with inequalities across societies.

Victoria gave a digital greeting at the global launch of the UN Human Development Report 2020, arranged by UNDP together with the Swedish government. This year is the 30th anniversary of the report. This year's report highlights how economic and human development can take place and be promoted without this happening at the expense of the planet's resources.

Victoria attended today the EU project DUNC's digital final conference.
DUNC - Development of UNESCO Natural and Cultural Assets - is an EU-funded collaborative project where Karlskrona municipality has been cohesive.
Victoria said at her greeting among other things:
"As an alumni ambassador for the Sustainable Development Goals, the future of the ocean, and the Baltic Sea in particular, is a topic very close to my heart. [...]
I believe the DUNC project is a great example of how we can come together, around the Baltic, to address the challenges we have in common. And I look very much forward to hearing more about the achievements that have been made over the past three years."

That is odd, since she doesn't have any scheduled official visit to the US in the near future, or does she?

The Swedish Royal family wants to be updated about the situation around the world. Dag Blanck informed, among other things, about the presidential election and gave an in-depth picture of the development of events in the country in connection with the election.

The king, queen, Victoria and Daniel gave on 6th October a digital audience to Karin Olofsdotter, Ambassador of Sweden to the United States, ahead of the presidential and congressional elections in the United States. And they gave ambassador Olofsdotter a digital audience on 17th December, after the elections.

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.

The royal court about Victoria speaking at a digital symposium on the Antarctic ecosystem in a changing climate and Sweden's role as chair of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).
At the symposium it was discussed, among other things, what is the basis for the Swedish presence in Antarctica and what the biggest challenges for sustainable management look like today.
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."

A forward-looking statement in a period when most European monarchies impose conventional standards of feminine beauty. It is perhaps particularly meaningful seen against the history of the publicity concerning the Crown Princess's diagnosis with an eating disorder in the 1990s.
 
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.

The Crown Princess has, as previously announced, fallen ill with covid-19. 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.

Victoria had today a digital meeting with Mats Höggren, CEO of Nordens Ark, to get information about how the pandemic has affected Nordens Ark and what the park's future plans look like.
Nordens Ark works to give endangered animals a future, which is done through nature conservation, breeding, research and education. Nordens Ark was inaugurated by the King in 1989 and Victoria has since been the park's patron.

Later today Victoria had a meeting with the Social Administration in the city of Stockholm. Social Director Fredrik Jurdell described the City of Stockholm's mission and work with various groups in vulnerability and how the municipality cooperates with other organizations, such as the City Mission. Social secretary Pontus Malmebo told about how he and his colleagues work with outreach activities for homeless people.

Nordens Ark about Victoria's meeting with Mats Höggren, CEO of Nordens Ark, on 23rd March.
"HRH Crown Princess Victoria is the patroness of Nordens Ark and deeply involved in issues related to biodiversity. She has a genuine interest in Nordens Arks work to save endangered animals. During a video meeting yesterday, the Crown Princess and Mats Höggren CEO of Nordens Ark discussed how the pandemic and the global shutdown have affected that work.
At Nordens Ark, we are deeply grateful to everyone who shares our interest in saving endangered species and who continue to visit our park, shop in the store, adopt an animal and in various ways donate gifts - it is crucial for our our continued work."

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?
 
Victoria had on Friday 26 March a digital meeting with staff who are currently attending the diplomatic, foreign administration or assistant programs at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
During the meeting, Victoria shared experiences from official trips and visits abroad and spoke among other things, the importance of the work that the apolitical officials in authorities and ministries carry out. The course participants could also make questions to Victoria.

Victoria started her speech:
One month ago, a 200 000-tonne ship became stranded in the Suez canal. One of the world's busiest trade routes was suddenly blocked, leaving hundreds of ships waiting to pass through.
Shortly after, an image appeared in news and social media all over the world. I am guessing most of you have seen it: a seemingly small yellow excavator, hunkered in the shadow of the enormous ship, patiently digging in the sand.
After five days of digging and tugging, the ship was freed – but not until the moon came to the rescue, in the form of a rising tide.
That image has stayed with me since. Despite all our human efforts, in the end, we still depend on nature to help us.
The speech:
