On Wednesday 26 August, The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel visited the studio association wip:sthlm in Årstaberg, Stockholm.

During their visit, The Crown Princess Couple had the opportunity to meet a number of the artists who are members of the association, and to visit their studios.

The main aim of the visit was to talk about artists' professional conditions during the pandemic.
