Princess Sofia Continues Volunteering at Sophiahemmet Hospital

Princess Sofia of Sweden continued her volunteering efforts at Sophiahemmet hospital. Sofia and Carl Philip are expecting their third child in April, a brother or sister for Prince Alexander and Prince Gabriel.

Last April, when the world was thrust into the pandemic, Sofia swiftly undertook basic healthcare training and began volunteering at Sophiahemmet. She was posted on a ward where her duties included cleaning and care duties. As honorary chair of the hospital, she was determined to help in any way she could. The hospital provides highly-specialised medical care across numerous areas by working with fifty independent healthcare providers.

Sofia's hard work did not go unnoticed. She was nominated by Consid for the “Corona Hero of the Century” award. The judges described her as a "royal icon" for her selfless efforts throughout the crisis. It's wonderful to see her visits continuing.

Sofia wore the Diane Von Furstenberg Andi dress (with many thanks to Heaven). The midi length, paisley pattern dress features a slit at the front.

  1. i nearly got choked on toast just reading this !!! Princess Sofia has been featured much in the news about her volunteering actions but to see her expecting her third child and ENGAGED IN CHARITY. My word, it's amazing. 19 degrees in Adelaide with a 67% humidity, i woke up this monring with all the apathy in the world wide world. Good to get a dose of down-to-earth reality. I'm chuffed, many thanks Charlotte :)

  4. This shows you, that women are able to walk, talk and chew gum all in one. We are multitasking with ease. I like this dress a lot, color and style. The best of luck to her.

  6. I am looking forward to the royal babies being born this year. Since there will be a few, it will be fun seeing the new photos of the little cuties and hearing their names.

  7. I am not sure it's a good idea being pregnant and working in a hospital as an assistant nurse is really a good idea.

  8. Sofia is setting such a shining example. The DVF wrap-over is cute and adaptable for maternity. I love the sophisticated take on paisley with a dark background which is both attractive and appropriate for a work role.

  9. I am really impressed. Taking on "lesser" jobs, so that the nurses have more time to actually perform medical jobs is such a great contribution. I wish more royals would have have the courage to go so far. Way less comfortable than zoom interviews of sending encouraging letters.
    What does surprise me though, is that she is actually allowed to do so. In my country pregnant woman are send home (fully paid!) if their job is potentially endangering their pregnancy (hard manual labour, heavy lifting, risk of infections). Either your doctor will put you on leave or the company itself. Big companies have their own doctor that asses your work situation and sends you home. They all have guidelines to be save in questions about the health and safety of their emplyoees. Not at least in terms of legal repercussions and insurance.
