The Crown Princess couple guardians of Umeå2014
The Crown Princess of Sweden, Victoria, and Prince Daniel will be the Guardians of the capital of culture year and they are planning to visit Umeå at least once during 2014.
– This is big, says Fredrik Lindegren, Artistic Director of Umeå2014.
On Tuesday night Marie-Louise Rönnmark, Mayor of Umeå and Chairwoman of the Municipal Capital of Culture Committee, got a letter with the news that the Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel will be the Guardians of the capital of culture year. This means that the year is important for the whole of Sweden.
– The Crown Princess and the Prince got an open invitation for the capital of culture year 2014 as a wedding gift from Umeå municipality, when they got married in 2010. It feels great that they want to take the opportunity and go through with a visit, says Fredirk Lindegren.
Victoria and Daniel are planning at least one visit to Umeå during the year of 2014, but the exact date for the visit is yet to be finalized.
– This is big. It would be great fun if the Crown Princess couple could be here for the inauguration As far as I know, there has never been any royal representation during earlier inaugurations of a capital of culture year, says Fredrik Lindegren.
