Såväl privat, offentlig som ideell sektor påverkas av coronakrisen. Runtom i Sverige arbetar människor dag och natt för att vårda sjuka och minska smittspridningen. Många känner oro för framtiden, blandat med oro för nära och kära. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Under förra veckan började Kronprinsessan och Prins Daniel att ringa runt till ett stort antal svenska organisationer och företag för att informera sig om läget. Under telefon- och videosamtalen, som fortsatte under gårdagen, framför Kronprinsessparet samtidigt sina hälsningar till alla de medarbetare och medlemmar som berörs av coronakrisen – och som bidrar med viktiga insatser för att mildra dess effekter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: Victor Ericsson/Kungl.

The images appear to have been taken in the palace's dining room, which features gold gilded chairs and a large oil painting hung against flocked wallpaper. A set of gold candelabras can also be seen on the mantelpiece in the background. Haga Palace was built in 1802 and was designed by architect Carl Christoffer Gjörwell, who was commissioned by King Gustaf IV Adolf.
