Crown Princess Victoria visited the Child Diabetes Foundation

Crown Princess Victoria attended the Child Diabetes Foundation’s 30th anniversary celebrations in the Linköping. To mark its anniversary, the foundation held a conference in Linköping at which specially invited researchers spoke about child diabetes.

The Crown Princess opened the conference with a speech, in which she said:”Through the foundation, I have had the opportunity to follow the scientific advances in diabetes research. “It has been fascinating – but also frustrating. So many children are falling ill with diabetes. But we still don’t know why. Nor do we know why the incidence is so high right here in Sweden and Finland.”

After her speech, The Crown Princess presented prizes to two prominent child diabetes researchers in the Nordic region and Sweden. This year’s winners were Per-Ola Carlsson and Araz Rawshani.

During the conference, The Crown Princess listened to several talks about what is thought to cause type 1 diabetes, and what living with the disease is like.

The Crown Princess has been patron of the Child Diabetes Foundation since 1993.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that causes the body’s own immune defence to attack the cells in the pancreas, destroying them so that they can no longer produce insulin. It is not known why this happens or why cases of type 1 diabetes are increasing.

More than 900 children and probably as many adults contract the disease in Sweden each year, making this the most common life-threatening disease to affect children. Despite modern technology and the very best treatment, type 1 diabetes all too often leads to serious secondary diseases and a shortened life expectancy.

The Child Diabetes Foundation was established in 1989, and is now Sweden’s biggest funder of research into type 1 diabetes. In addition to raising funds for research, the foundation also carries out projects with the aim of helping and supporting affected children, young people and their families.

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.
