Princess Madeleine and Queen Silvia of Sweden met with a 7-year-old little girl named Enna at Princess Sibylla’s apartments in the Royal Palace. This was done through the Min Stora Dag organisation of which Madeleine is the patron.
Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine were happy to grant Enna her life’s dream of meeting them. Enna is from Skåne, Sweden, and is suffering from a disease that makes her life extra difficult. The little girl was clearly very thrilled to be at the Royal Palace with them. Enna also presented Madeleine with a drawing she had made for her.
Madeleine said of the visit on her Facebook page, “Enna is 7 and her dream was to meet the Royal Family at the Palace. My mom and I are so blessed to be able to fulfill that dream for her today! So proud of all the work “Min Stora Dag” does. ”
Min Stora Dag (My Special Day) is the Swedish equivalent to the Make a Wish Foundation. They make dreams come true for seriously ill children and teenagers. The non-profit organisation helps children from the ages of 4 to 18-years-old and was founded in 2000. By 2014, it had helped over 2,500 children. Min Stora Dag has said about their vision, “All children with serious illnesses in Sweden should be a part of something positive and out of the ordinary that provides power and self-esteem.”
Earlier this year, Princess Madeleine held a princess themed tea party at the Royal Palace with children from Min Stora Dag. On this occasion, the children were dressed as little princesses and princes. Madeleine re-wore the dress from the Nobel Peace Prize dinner with the Swedish Aquamarine Kokoshnik tiara, much to the delight of the children in attendance. Her daughter, Princess Leonore also attended.
