On February 1st, Prince Carl Phillip and Princess Sofia launched the podcast with hosts Isa Galvan and Linnea Holst. They spoke about how they have been victims of näthat and that the experience has been a driving force to help others. Prince Carl Phillip said: “I think most of us find it difficult to imagine life without the internet. There are so enormously positive! But as with everything, there are both bright and dark sides of the net. We ourselves have been exposed online. It has become a strong driving force to help others who are vulnerable. And that is precisely why we chose to work with this in our foundation. ”
