The Royal Week, in Numbers
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden shows her support for breast cancer awareness
One week, so many royal events and not all of them in Canada. After seven days of action packed regal events, it's time for a catch up and what better way to get things in order than with a bit of numerical help. Here's the Royal Week, in numbers.
The number of years Crown Princess Victoria has been patron of the pink ribbon campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer in Sweden. This week, photos were released to mark her patronage for 2016. The Crown Princess met representatives of the Cancer Society at the Royal Palace in September to hear about the progress being made in research and to hear more about plans for this year's awareness campaign which runs throughout October.
The number of years since the Piezo Foundation was set up - it helps people in vulnerable situations find their way in society and this week it marked its birthday with the help of Queen Maxima of the Netherlands. The Dutch queen visited one of the foundation's centres in Zoetermeer and met people being supported there as she took part in the celebrations.
