Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia
They get a visit from Princess Beatrice
Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia have received a special visit: Princess Beatrice and her husband have traveled to Sweden.
Swedish and British royals work together for a good cause: Prince Carl Philip (42) and his wife Sofia (37) met Princess Beatrice (33) and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi (38) in Sweden. In a photo on the official Instagram account of the Swedish royal couple the four pose for the camera together at Stockholm Palace.
The reason for the visit of the British royals to Sweden is the World Dyslexia Assembly, the world dyslexia assembly, which takes place shortly in Stockholm. According to the post, the Swedish royal couple’s foundation, together with the charity Made By Dyslexia, invites “stakeholders from across society to work towards a more inclusive society for dyslexics”. Carl Philip and Sofia thank Princess Beatrice, “who has long campaigned for dyslexics” and her husband, “who has joined us”.
The two women chose long dresses with floral patterns for the occasion, the men wore blue suits with ties.
Beatrice and Carl Philip suffer from dyslexia
The subject of dyslexia is particularly important to Princess Beatrice and Prince Carl Philip, as both suffer from dyslexia. The two royals are open about their dyslexia. The Swedish prince roughly explained in an interview with The Times 2018that his self-confidence used to be “down” due to his dyslexia. He was “afraid that I wouldn’t get the words right”.
Princess Beatrice told a similar story the “Hello!” magazine 2021that she was “confused” when she was diagnosed when she was seven and felt like an “outsider”. Because of her parents and “fantastic teachers” she now sees her dyslexia as a “gift” and a “gift”. “Not a single person” in her environment made her feel less valuable at the time. “It was always about moving forward and what you can do,” she explained.
Nowadays, Beatrice thinks it’s “inspirational to talk about it”. She wants to help affected children with her story: It is a “fantastic opportunity” to share some of her “great insights”. The 33-year-old is a patron of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity, which she used to support herself.
