Crown Princess Victoria celebrates World Water Day each year. This year, with the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, she did so from her home at Haga Palace with the help of her husband, Prince Daniel and their two children, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar.
Crown Princess Victoria took two photos that were shared on the Royal Family’s social media channels to celebrate the day and encouraging others to practice good self-hygiene to help prevent the coronavirus.
The images show her husband and two children washing their hands in the sink.
The post on Kungahuset’s social media said, “Today is World Water Day! In times of infection, we are all encouraged to wash our hands with soap and water frequently. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“In Sweden, most people have good access to soap and clean water in the tap. But around the world, 785 million people do not have access to clean water. Nor are 3 billion people able to wash their hands with soap and water. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Today, on World Water Day, the Crown Princess Couple, therefore, want to highlight the work that @wateraid is doing in the world’s poorest communities to change this.”
The Swedish Royal Family is carefully monitoring the coronavirus outbreak and is adjusting their schedule as needed. They recently closed all of the royal palaces in Sweden until further notice.
