Princess Sofia has been given a great and important responsibility. Now she enters a room at the castle - with the Queen's blessing.
After the king's announcement, about shrinking the royal family on titles, many wondered if Carl Philip and Sofia, hereafter, would shine with their absence in the royal calendar. But not! The Prince couple has rather put in another gear and turns out more than ever. Not least Sofia. Now she is also given more responsibility - by mother-in-law Silvia.Sofia's new assignment at the castle
On Thursday, November 28, Princess Sofia will participate in the Global Child Forum. The forum started in 2009 and is the royal couple's foundation. And just like the Queen's charity, the World Childhood Foundation, so is focusing on deepening the knowledge of children's rights, worldwide. Issues that touch Childhood's mission to the highest degree. But what is a bit surprising with tomorrow's forum is that the King's couple has decided that Sofia shares in the board meeting alone. Neither the initiators, the king and the queen, the crown princess couple nor Prince Carl Philip are in the castle.
Princess Sofia thus has to assume the role of family representative - on her own. This is the first time only a family member is attending this type of meeting. And that the royal couple chooses Sofia is a clear gesture on their part. They really trust their daughter-in-law and value her knowledge of the safety of children and young people.
- "It has turned out that it is not enough to emphasize the importance of informing about children's rights, both here at home and abroad"

Madeleine has also supported her parents' foundation. She has been working with Mother Silvia's Childhood since the age of 17 and is also passionate about helping vulnerable children. But the princess does not have the same opportunity to participate in the Global Child Forum since she has been living in Miami for a year. However, she usually gets the meetings recounted for herself over the phone. And this year, maybe even sister-in-law Sofia is calling!
