A new video has been released in which Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden runs up the stairs of the Royal Palace of Stockholm wearing her high heels. The video is part of the campaign Upp & Hoppa Sverige from the Crown Princess Couple’s organisation, Generation Pep.
Generation Pep was founded by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel with the vision that all children and young people in Sweden should have the ability and desire to live an active and healthy life. Yesterday the organisation posted a new video on her YouTube-page in which Crown Princess Victoria can be seen working at her desk. One of the palace’s members of staff greets the Crown Princess and says “It’s time again.”

The video is part of the organisation’s Upp & Hoppa Sverige-campaign. It is said that Swedish people sit for about nine hours a day. Generation Pep explains the importance of keeping active for the wellbeing of children: “Good habits are founded early in life. We adults must present a good example. Children do as we do, not as we say.”
Sitting for such a long time every day has many negative effects: “You get tired, less effective and the risk for cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer are increased.”
Because of this, Generation Pep has been uploading several videos in which people are encouraged to move more. It is not the first time the Crown Princess family is featured in a video on behalf of the organisation. Last year Prince Daniel and Princess Estelle built a parcours in their garden of Haga Slott. Their effort was filmed and posted on the YouTube-channel of Generation Pep. Prince Daniel and Princess Estelle wanted to encourage children to exercise for at least 60 minutes a day.
