The royal family attended the World Child and Youth Forum, at the Royal
Palace, November 19, 2010. The World Child and Youth Forum (WCYF) was
launched by The King in his Christmas speech last year, and has long been
a dream shared by The King and The Queen. The idea is to create a forum
for inspiration and support, to ensure that the UN Convention on the Rights
of the Child is adhered to.

With this "joint forces" (aka, nearly the entire family joins), they want to show "the show must go on" and "back to normality". Surely a wise step. And it also show: "the family stays together -- strong as always".

I hope, there will be no more details revealed.... Let´s get back to normality, if possible.

From a website of Daniel attending a seminar today at the World Youth & Child Forum:
""After lunch was time for the seminar I, Save the Children, was responsible for in conjunction with the National Sports Federation.
Early selection in sports was the theme.
The conversation was very good and in the audience was also Prince Daniel, who had a variety of good questions and statements."

The World Child & Youth Forum is not associated with World Childhood foundation. It is an initiative started by the King and Queen in 2009. Below is the part of the King's holiday message where he talks about the forum;

In traditional Christmas speeches on December 25, Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia announced the launch of a new forum for children and youth in honour of the 20th anniversary of the United Nation's Convention of the Right's of the Child.
  • of the UN Convention on the Right's of the Child. We hope that the first forum can be held in Stockholm at the end of next year,” he said during the speech, which was broadcast on Swedish Radio.

    The king described the forum as a “shared dream” that he and Queen Silvia have fostered following trips abroad where they have witnessed the poverty and unjustice that many children are exposed to. King Carl also said he has been inspired by charity organisations and the scout movement, which he is also involved with.

    “Parenthood also means that your commitment to other children and youth grows. We feel that with our status comes a duty to try to contribute to improving the conditions for children and youth across Sweden and in the world,” he said.

Thank you for pointing this out, grevinnan; I was thinking of doing the same as it doesn't make sense to assemble the posts about this relatively new Forum under the topic 'World Childhood Foundation'.
 
The court has put the king's and queen's interview about the Global Child Forum to their website:

Part of it
Global Child Forum is the Royal Family's first joint foundation - in which way the family works with these issues together?
The King: The Queen can these issues best in the family, I help and support willingly these important issues.
The Queen: We all have a commitment to children and youth, but in slightly different ways. The king with the Scouts. The Crown Princess Couple with their foundation, Princess Madeleine's engagement for Childhood USA, and Prince Carl Philip is patron of Lilla Barnets Fond.

King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia: Current Events, Part 8 (May 2010 - )

Kungahuset just posted a video of the King's speech at the Global Child Forum on their YouTube channel.

Since the court hasn't put photos of the dinner to their website, I doubt that there were photographers. And there are less photos of the forum than last year, probably because Victoria and Daniel didn't attend this year. I hope that they will put photos to the forum website after some days.
From the forum at the court website. After the forum was the traditional concert at the Royal Palace and governor Chris Heister hosted a reception at the Tessinska Palatset (Tessin Palace).

Thank you, LadyFinn! Had a look around already, and didn't find any, so am a bit disappointed.
