On November 14, 2012, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden held an audience with politicians from Libya, Tunisia, and Egypt. According to the Swedish royal court:
“The politicians are here to share experiences and discuss the obstacles that female politicians face in different countries. The overall objective is to strengthen women in their political work and to increase the representation of women in decision making bodies. Another aim is that they will network and exchange experiences with Swedish politicians.
They will also meet with Swedish parliamentarians in a roundtable discussion, the Swedish ambassador in Libya and Tunisia and other representatives of the MFA and Sida.”
Meanwhile, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden attended a charity auction in Stockholm “… on the occasion of World Diabetes Day…” according to the Expressen newspaper.
