Queen Silvia opens a child advocacy centre and receives an award

On Thursday 5 and Friday 6 September, Queen Silvia visited Heidelberg, Bensheim and Wiesbaden in Germany. Her trip included commemorations to mark the World Childhood Foundation’s 20th anniversary.

On the Thursday, The Queen attended the opening of Germany’s second child advocacy centre. The formal opening ceremony was held in Heidelberg University’s main auditorium. During the ceremony, The Queen gave a speech. The Queen and the President of Germany’s wife Elke Büdenbender then made their way to the new child advocacy centre.

Childhood’s child advocacy centres are for children who are thought to have been victims of violence or sexual abuse. The centres are adapted to meet the needs of the children, and all the people the children meet there – such as police investigators, prosecutors, social services, psychiatric services, forensic medicine personnel and healthcare workers – are specially trained.
The relevant authorities work together on-site so that the child does not need to be passed from place to place, repeating their account of the trauma over and over again.

In the evening, a dinner was held at Heidelberg Palace to celebrate Childhood’s 20th anniversary.

On the Friday morning, The Queen continued her programme by attending Childhood Germany’s board meeting. The Queen then travelled to Bensheim where she received the Karl Kübel Prize.

The Karl Kübel Foundation recognised The Queen’s commitment to the children of the world through the creation of the World Childhood Foundation. During the award ceremony, The Queen gave a speech.

The day then concluded with The Queen and other representatives from Childhood travelling to Wiesbaden, where they were received by Minister President of Hesse Volker Bouffier.

Crown Princess Victoria’s birthday celebrations in Solliden

On Sunday 14 July, more than 2,000 people gathered in front of Solliden Palace on Öland to congratulate Crown Princess Victoria on her 42nd birthday. The King and Queen, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar also attended the celebrations.

The Crown Princess was congratulated outside Solliden Palace with singing and four cheers, which is traditionally led by The King.

As well as being a national flag day, the heir to the Swedish throne’s birthday is also an official day on which salutes are fired. At 13:00, the Swedish Armed Forces therefore fired 21-gun salutes from the salute stations at Skeppsholmen in Stockholm, Kungshall in Karlskrona, Skansen Lejonet in Gothenburg and Kusthöjden in Härnösand, and from a mobile saluting battery at Kvarnängen in Boden.

In the evening, the Royal Family travelled by horse-drawn cortège from Solliden Palace to the celebrations at Borgholm Sports Arena, where Benjamin Ingrosso, Arja Saijonmaa, Rickard Söderberg, Lina Hedlund, Kaliffa and Isaac & The Soul Company performed.

During the evening, The Crown Princess presented the Victoria Prize to biathlete Hanna Öberg.

Hanna Öberg received the 2019 Victoria Prize in recognition of her performance in the 15 km race. Following perfect shooting and stable skiing, Hanna took first place on the podium and a World Championship gold medal, much to the delight of the home crowd of supporters. She also helped win silver in the ladies’ relay and bronze in the single mixed relay.

Danish Prince Joachim and Princess Marie in France

The French minister of defense has invited His Royal Highness Prince Joachim to participate in France’s highest ranking military training course. In this connection, Prince Joachim and Her Royal Highness Princess Marie and the couple’s two children, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena, will move to Paris.

As of September of this year until summer of 2020, Prince Joachim will take part in France’s highest ranking military leadership training. The French minister of defense has invited the Prince to participate in the training following the state visit from France to Denmark last year, where one of the main themes was strategic partnerships in the areas of trade, culture and defense. The Prince is the first Danish officer to participate in this training.

The training takes place six days a week at École Militaire in Paris and consists of two parts, one by the Centre des Hautes Études Militaires (CHEM) [Center for Advanced Military Studies] and one by the Institut des Hautes Études de la Défense Nationale (IHEDN).

The majority of the studies will take place at CHEM and consist of military studies at the highest level. The training is for 30 selected officers with the rank of colonel or captain (N), and the main topics are strategic military leadership and international relations. The participants are primarily from France, plus some from France’s strategic partner countries.

The military studies are supplemented with studies at IHEDN in strategic leadership and public administration, with the addition of some 70 business leaders, parliamentarians and government officials, as well as representatives from the media. Here, international relations in the areas of trade, politics, culture and military disciplines are debated and discussed, just as crisis management and experience exchange are among the topics.

The additional training in France supplements Prince Joachim’s current post in the Danish Defence, where the Prince is special advisor to the chief of defense in relation to the reserve since 2015.

Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie at Circus Festival in Monte Carlo

Prince Albert II of Monaco, Princess Stephanie of Monaco and Louis Ducruet attended the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo in Monaco. The Festival presents about 25 acts each year, in two different sets of performances. The awards are presented during a closing Gala performance attended by the Prince of Monaco, and his family and guests. Traditionally, the Prince also attends every selection performance. The first Gold Clowns, which in time became the equivalent of an Oscar® to the circus world, were awarded to Alfred Court, in tribute to his exceptional career, and to Charlie Rivel. (See Gold, Silver, and Bronze Clown list.)

In 1975, the Festival was presented under the big top of the Italian circus, Nando, Liana e Rinaldo Orfei, and from 1975 to 1994, under the big top of another Italian Circus, Circo Americano-Togni. Since 1995, it has been held under a large, sedentary circus structure, permanently installed on the same location, in what is now the Quartier Fontvielle, in Monaco.
