I know we tend to prefer when Sofia isn't around but I think it would have been nice for her to show up since she (supposedly genuinely) got involved with the hospital to help during the pandemic. I haven't heard much more about that enterprise.

Oh is she still on maternity leave? I'm American so that's why I was thinkin she might be available lol

Julian was born in March 2021 if I recall correctly. I think Sweden gets over a year of mat leave but I'm not sure if Sofia follows that timeline or not. I agree though; it would have been great to see her.

The parental leave in Sweden is much more than in many other countries. However, Sofia has attended some events, such as the state visit recently and Sophiahemmet thing so she has broken a little with her maternity leave. So if she genuinely cared for the cause and charity, I'm sure CP or a nanny could have looked after Julian while she attended the event; a precedent had been set. My guess is that she doesn't care as much as she preaches, more to the point she doesn't care unless she is front and centre of the show.

I agree that she could have attended this.  Maternity leave for a royal means something way different than it means for, well--basically any nonroyal.  I wouldn't expect shopworker or a teacher or a doctor or an IT specialist etc. to come off maternity leave early for a work event.  But this...she could have managed.

Didn’t she miss something recently because the kids were sick? Perhaps that’s still the case.

Or maybe Silvia did not want her there.

I'm sorry but at her age I can see Silvia thinking that she is too old to play pretend conviviality with her despised DIL on a one on one basis in public.

I, for once, am happy S didn't attend.
She has a habbit of being in the middle of the pics, even when the king and the queen are around so, I wouldn't appreciate it at all if she was - again - in the middle of the photo and Silvia being pushed aside.

Does Silvia despise her? I always thought Silvia and CG favoured CP and Sofia but maybe it's just CG.

I think it was telling that CP and Sofia's engagement was announced when Silvia was away on an international engagement for a week.

They could have waited until she got back to announce but did not, at the very least we can infer that Silvia had misgivings on Sofia entering the family.

That does seem a little suspicious! There's no reason why they couldn't have delayed the announcement until she returned.

Silvia is the founder of Silviahemmet, which is a care home and master academy for nurses specialising in dementia so I think it's natural that she is the one representing at this graduation ceremony. She seems to have aged a bit lately, but then again, don't we all Smiley

And that face and non verbal attitude of Silvia at the official engagement announcement/pictures/interview  Wink

Do you have a picture or a link? I tried googling a couple of articles but they just had Sofia and CP, didn't show the parents. They were already married by the time I joined this board.

This would be a great program for Stephanie of Luxembourg to bring to Luxembourg (or take on, if it already exists).  I seem to recall her saying that she wanted to work with the elderly in her role as HGD. As she's gaining confidence and branching out, I can see her really enjoying this.

Silvia presented the Polar Music Prize 2020 to Russian opera singer Anna Netrebko during a concert at Konserthuset Stockholm. Anna Netrebko was supposed to have been awarded the prize last year, but the ceremony was canceled due to the pandemic
