Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel attend a “secret” conference

Yesterday, Crown Princess Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel attended the SNS Tylösand Conference in Halmstad in Sweden. The conference was not open to the media and is kept under the Chatham House Rule.

The Chatham House Rule is a system for holding debates and discussion panels on controversial issues, named after the headquarters of the UK Royal Institute of International Affairs, based in Chatham House, London, where the rule originated in June 1927. At a meeting held under the Chatham House Rule, anyone who comes to the conference is free to use information from the discussion but is not allowed to reveal who made any comment. It is designed to increase the openness of debate.

This year’s Tylösand conference was about urbanisation and the increasing importance of the cities in the nation’s social economy. Since 1948, this conference has been a collective conference for Sweden’s largest companies, authorities and organisations as well as researchers. The conference is a prominent meeting place for discussions on current social issues.

Each year many prominent speakers held their lectures at the conference. This year a total of 28 people held their short talks an speeches during the day-long conference. Among them were Raj Chetty, Professor in Economics at Harvard University; Fran Tonkiss, Professor in Sociology at the London School of Economics; and Mikael Damberg, Minister for Enterprise and Innovation in Sweden.

The Crown Princess has recently received praise for her increased activity for the Swedish Royal House, and it is, without doubt, the Crown Princess who has the most events to perform on behalf of her family.

Today, the Crown Princess will have a busy schedule as she will visit the Stockholm International Water Institute, SIWI, and later in the day, the Crown Princess visit Dramaten to attend the opening of the Bergman Festival and the SAFE show.
