Weekly Recap

While normally I post Weekly recaps on Friday's, I missed last Friday due to my part-time job turning into a full-time job for a week! There were no big pre-announced events outside of the palace, but plenty of meetings inside the palace which the Royal Court shared photos of! In addition to these meetings, there were a 2 unannounced/surprise engagements! 

On Wednesday, the King and Queen along with the Crown Princess Couple held an audience for the Polish Presidential Couple.

On Friday, the King and Crown Princess held a meeting with the Advisory Council and Foreign Policy Council. The Advisory Council is a consultative body between the parliament and the government where the King sits in the chair. The Advisory Council is convened on the government and the Constitution states that "The Government shall keep the Advisory Council informed about the foreign policy conditions that may be of importance for the country and discuss with the Board on these as often as needed." Victoria sits on the Foreign Policy Council.

On Monday, Victoria joined the King for the regularly held Cabinet Meeting.  Cabinet Meetings began in 1974 and are held 3-4 times a year. The purpose of these cabinet meetings is for the Ministers of Policy Initiatives can give updates to the King as well as answer any questions he may have. Victoria attends because she is the next Head of State and it is important for her to be up-to-date on the things that are happening within the government.

Yesterday, she attended with Prince Carl Philip the monthly meeting for their Prinsparet Fund at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. 

Today, Princess Sofia attended a business lunch at Hotel Diplomat in Stockholm. This lunch meeting was organized by CEO Veronica Ericsson Laakso and was attended by 12 female entrepreneurs from varying business sectors. Sofia was invited because of her connection with Project Playground, the foundation which she helped to co-found in 2011. During the lunch, the ladies discussed the topic of Social Entrepreneurship and Sustainability

For today's outfit, Sofia wore a new jacket from Ted Baker and earrings from Caroline Gynnings. I am still looking for her shoes and bag and when I find them I will update the post. Huge thanks to our fabulous friends @princessansofia and Laura on Twitter for finding these two items! 

I will close by making the disclaimer that this week is beyond crazy for me- I am working 20+ hours this week on top of my typical school load and extra curricular commitments, so be patient with me as I get these posts up. They will probably be shorter in length and not is prompt but after this week we should be all set for the rest of the year! 

Unannounced Engagement: Crown Princess Victoria visits RG Aktiv Rehab

Today Crown Princess Victoria visited RG Aktiv Rehab, RG Active Rehabilitation. This program is one of the many that receives funding from The Crown Princess Victoria Fund. This program strives to offer those who are wheelchair bound due to spinal chord injuries, a fun and intensive training youth camp. The children learn bodycombat workouts, teach how to live an active life and give young people the opportunity to discover all that they are capable of. The program currently operates out of Böson, the national sports venue in Stockholm.

Project Playground Fundraising Dinner

On Friday Evening, Princess Sofia attended a fundraising dinner for Project Playground at Nio Rum in Stockholm.

Project Playground, is foundation Sofia started back in 2010 with Frida Vesterberg providing care and support to children in Cape Town, South Africa as well as various projects in Sweden. They use the UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child as their guiding principles and look to help children the chance to strengthen their personal and social development. The work they do with the physically disabled children in Cape Town is especially inspiring.
