Princess Sofia of Sweden has undertaken a three-day medical course so that she can join healthcare staff fighting the coronavirus crisis on the frontline.

THE Swedish royal has started working at the Sophiahemmet hospital in Stockholm, of which she is a patron, to do her bit to help health personnel putting their own lives at risk to save others.

Princess Sofia is the wife of Prince Carl Philip, and the daughter-in-law of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden.

She will assist hospital staff with non-medical related tasks. These include caring for the patients’ families, cleaning and disinfecting all the sanitary material as well as administrative duties.


She took an online crash course, set up by the hospital, aimed at SAS airline staff who had been laid off and wanted to retrain in order to be able to deal with any emergencies and help ease the burden during the coronavirus pandemic.
