Sweden: Princess Sofia to continue working in healthcare in the autumn

NordenBladet – Sweden’s Princess Sofia is to continue working in healthcare through the autumn, the Royal Court has confirmed. The 35-year-old Princess began helping at Sophiahemmet hospital in Stockholm after undergoing training at Sophiahemmet University in an effort to help out during the ongoing pandemic. She helps with cleaning and does shifts in the kitchen.

The Royal Court’s Head of Information, Margareta Thorgren, confirmed to Expressen that Sofia would continue this work in the autumn. She said: “Princess Sofia continues her work at Sophiahemmet and will start her part-time job again in September. She is very much looking forward to it.”

Prince Carl Philip will be undertaking royal duties.

Princess Sofia is the Honorary Chair of Sophiahemmet and has called her work there during the pandemic “extremely rewarding.”

This summer, she gave an online speech about her work and said: “The last few months have been tough for very many, not least in healthcare. All efforts have been needed, and I know that several of you have gone in and supported in different parts of healthcare. I, myself, got an opportunity to come in and work at Sophiahemmet and still do. In fact, with some of you.”

Sofia added: “But to see healthcare from the inside in this way, to meet patients myself, and to see safe, well-trained nurses ‘in action,’ it is rare that I have been so impressed.”
