Princess Madeleine Launches her 1st Book
Today, Princess Madeleine was in attendance at the book launch for her first book Stella och Hemligheten (Stella and the Secret).
This book was written in conjunction with World Childhood Foundation’s 20th anniversary, however Princess Madeleine has said the idea has been in the works for many years. The book is co-authored by Karini Gustafson-Teixeira and Marie Oskarsson alongside the Princess and illustrated by Stina Lövkvist. The 144 page book explores Stella’s move to Sweden with her father where her new friend Elena shares a secret that weighs heavy on Stella. The book explores what Stella should do with this secret and helps parent and children begin an open dialogue of the difficult issues relating to integrity, trust and self-esteem.
Princess Madeleine has said “It is incredibly important to dare to talk to children about abuse and the right to privacy. All children deserve to grow up in a safe and loving environment. With more people helping to break the silence, we may be able to get there together”.
The book is published by Bonnier Carlsen and will be available for sale in bookstores starting today. The book will also be available as an audiobook in the future. Princess Madeleine recorded the introduction yesterday.
For this exciting day, Princess Madeleine wore a white oxford blouse which she paired with a new Aje skirt. She paired this with Aerin earrings, Manolo Blahnik Pumps, and Botiker Clutch Bag. She selected to accessorize with Ebba Brahe ring and Eyes Wide Open Bracelet.
