At Columbia University on Friday, the Queen attended a seminar titled 'Children in the Age of Sustainable Development'. In her speech to the audience she spoke of the work of the World Childhood Foundation, which she established, and its ThankYou campaign, which was launched by Princess Madeleine. The campaign aims to involve young people in children's causes through social media, and to raise awareness of problems children face world wide, including homelessness, abuse and poverty.
"Through the power of partnerships, we hope to create environments where children feel safe, secure and respected; where they can grow up to reach their full potential."
 The Queen finished her speech saying:
"My hope is that we can work together to put children at the centre of the sustainable development agenda."
The royal duo also met volunteers working with ThankYou in Washington Square Park.

On Saturday, Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine attended the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, which featured acts such Jay Z and DJ Tiësto and was hosted by actor Hugh Jackman. The festival was held to raise funds to fight poverty world wide. People attending the concert received tickets by lottery after using social media and email to sign petitions, contact politicians and share information on driving positive social change.

    That looks to be an amazing event for such a good cause. Madeleine looks fabulous in casual clothes with her hair natural - wonderful to see her work with her mum for a good cause. And given the rumours she has to face about her marriage (not to mention the past talk about her family) Silvia carries herself with great dignity.
