Random Royaling – Queens-in-Training (Updated)

The Netherlands

OC made me laugh when she said, “Clearly this one wants to be known for handbags.” That makes Amalia fit in perfectly at this particular blog, and, if she’s emulating Betty, I am all for it. In all seriousness, the Princess of Orange looks fantastic. They all do.


All the royal children got into the act, calling on senior citizens to bring a little royal sunshine into their lives. They look more comfortable than their parents do working from home, particularly Elisabeth who has made that corner of the library quite a stylish office.

In later breaking news, it was announced that Elisabeth has finished her studies in Wales, and will enter a one year program at the Royal Military School.


The ultimate Queen in Training (really, she needs no more training, she’s the pro), gave a video address to the European Conference on Rare Diseases. It’s always good to hear Vickan speak, isn’t it? She projects such gravitas.

I dag höll Kronprinsessan ett inledningstal på den europeiska konferensen ECRD2020, om sällsynta diagnoser. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kronprinsessan, som är beskyddare av @sallsyntadiagnoser, inledde den digitala konferensen med att bland annat säga: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “That is why organizations such as yours, and meetings such as this, are so important: To give voice to those who need to be heard. To share knowledge and experiences. And to remind us, that even when the world gives you plenty of reasons to feel that way, you are not alone.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌 Kungafamiljen är angelägen om att visa sitt stöd för de insatser som görs i olika delar av samhället för att bekämpa covid-19-pandemin. Genom samtal, digitala möten och besök informerar sig Kungafamiljen om hur pandemin påverkar Sverige. Besök planeras utifrån rådande rekommendationer och med en strävan att inte i onödan ta verksamheternas tid och resurser i anspråk. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎥: Victor Ericsson/Kungl. Hovstaterna
