Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband Prince Daniel have made a historic royal visit to an LGBT+ organisation, sending a clear message of support in the face of growing nationalist politics. The royals were given a tour of RFSL and RFSL Ungdom’s national office in Stockholm to gain an insight into the challenges experienced by LGBT+ people in Swedish society today. It was the first time the crown princess visited an LGBT+ organisation and was requested by the royals themselves. The princess reportedly wanted to know more about how attitudes towards LGBT+ people were changing in her country. RFSL’s president Deidre Palacios said it was “a critical time” for the organisation as the presence of the rainbow flag and the work of RFSL is being threatened by “nationalist forces“.
