Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband Prince Daniel have made a historic royal visit
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband Prince Daniel have made a historic royal visit to an LGBT+ organisation, sending a clear message of support in the face of growing nationalist politics.
The royals were given a tour of RFSL and RFSL Ungdom’s national office in Stockholm to gain an insight into the challenges experienced by LGBT+ people in Swedish society today.
It was the first time the crown princess visited an LGBT+ organisation and was requested by the royals themselves. The princess reportedly wanted to know more about how attitudes towards LGBT+ people were changing in her country.
The royal couple showed a particular interest in RFSL’s ongoing work with sports and senior citizens’ issues. They also spoke about immigration and asylum.
