On April 7th CP will take part to a military exercise with the V?rmland battalion, also known as the 19th Home Guard Battalion.
Lieutenant Colonel Bengt Fransson, commander of the joint Orebro Varmland Group said -It's the first time he participates in one of our exercises, but thankfully we have seen the prince engaged in the armed forces-
I was wondering if this is the reason why he won't attend the meeting with Susanna Cederquist about dyslexia on Aprile 4th. The exercise is on April 7th but it recquires a preparation of several days before. http://www.svenskdam.se/2...erkar-i-militart-uppdrag/
Couldn't the meeting be moved then? It's just a meeting at the palace not some kind of larger event. And I looked and there's no significance to April 4th and dyslexia (ie dyslexia day or something like that). Most of that stuff seems to be in October.
As others mentioned in the thread, dyslexia is CP's main cause. It just seems weird to have Sofia there and not him.
Yes, ITA. I'm among the ones who thinks that it should be CP the one to attend this event. But I think that, in a way, this was could have be done on purpose to justify Sofia's presence, just to promote her a little bit more.
I do not know if I made myself clear.
The only event that was held during spring (and however in May) was the national dyslexia forum a couple of years ago that however was intiated by CP and even last years a main event on this topic was held in May. I also think that this meeting could have been postponed after the exercise.
ITA I hope you don't think my disagreement was directed at you.
More like if that's really what the court is trying to convince themselves is the reason, I call BS.
And honestly, if this is Sofia's idea of promoting herself more, it's disastrously awful. If I were a royal trying to promote myself more, I would come up with a cause for which I can attend a lot of events but that the royal family doesn't do a lot with now and do events with that. I wouldn't pick a cause that's recognizably the cause of another family member (husband at that) and try to co-opt it. But I haven't been impressed with Sofia's previous attempts at "self promotion" so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
Oh no...not at all LauraMarie
I totally agree with you about that
also about Sofia's attempts to look for her own causes..she has chosen topic that are shared by other members of the family (Madeleine, Silvia and now CP). I mean....I think she is failing on everything with her promotion .
I can only imagine it's because other causes not yet championed by the royal family don't really want her.
Which is why Kungen has to wrestle one away from his sister to give to Snake.
Which is why Madde has to make a bit of space at Childhood (GCF) for Snake.
And this one, maybe she has her husband put in a good word or someone from the household put in a good word so she could attend, and since the RF is already involved I think the people might have a hard time saying no. And so once again Sofia relies on the family's goodwill.
She has 1 son now, and has been married into the family for quite a while now. Even Workshies like the one in Flashalot and the other one in Scarvesville have charities "to themselves", and not one they brought in from pre wedding either.
We don't hear an expression of interest, let alone a stampede to Sofia's door for a patron.
Let's say... she goes for nice causes like Camilla. Wash kits for rape victims? You think any charity will want to have her as their spokesperson once they learned about Snake's victim blaming ways?
Disabilities or paralympics? After blogging viciously about her disabled teacher?
Bereavement? Now wouldn't it be cruel to sic a Snake on some grieving person?
Art? Other than to be a live nude model for a drawing class, what can she talk about? What can she promote? Endowments for photographers of underage models?
