Today, Prince Daniel attended a conference on business and entrepreneurship in Tyulёsande (Southern Sweden). Prince Daniel was pictured with the Minister for Foreign Affairs Carl Bildt and the general manager of the hotel Tylösand, Elizabeth Haglund.
In an interview with Expressen today, Queen Silvia explained why she and Princess Madeleine took a last minute decission to not attend the Polar Music Prize yesterday. Her Majesty and her daughter Princess Madeleine decided to not attend because of Laureate Chuck Berry. Mr Berry is convicted of human trafficking.
Queen Silvia explains:
"Unfortunately, I was very late to hear what had happened and then I felt that for me it wasn’t ok to be there at the ceremony because there are so many people who believe in me, in Childhood and in the Princess. All these values that are so important today. I did not want to create a stir, I just couldn’t accept it. However, I was then at the dinner in honor of the runner. I hope that this hasn’t damaged the Polar Music Prize.”
On the question whether the King agreed, she said:
”It was a family decision and I hope that everyone respects that. I just felt that this was something I could not accept.” She added: “It was difficult because I didn’t want to spoil anything for the winners or the Polar Music Prize, but I just couldn’t attend.” “The whole family was involved. The King respects where I stand for and understands it. It was a family decision and hope that everyone respects that and understands.”
Best decision they could make.
