The first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is marked by Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden.
The annual portrait of Crown Princess Victoria wearing this year’s pink ribbon kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month began on October 1st, marking the month dedicated to raising awareness about the illness.
The Crown Princess of Sweden, 44, has been an outspoken supporter of the cause for the past 13 years, with the Royal House tweeting a photo of her on the first day of the month to commemorate the occasion.
On Friday, the Heir to the Throne released the annual portrait.
The Crown Princess, on the other hand, had received the Cancer Foundation’s Secretary General Ulrika rehed Kgström and the Chairman of the Cancer Foundation’s Research Committee Klas Kärre to the Royal Palace a week before the campaign began.
Selam Fessahaye, a fashion and costume designer in Sweden, created this year’s pink ribbon.
The 2021 ribbon, on the other hand, was created by a Belgian royal – Princess Delphine, King Philippe’s half-sister.

Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, is King Carl XVI Gustaf’s eldest child.
She would be Sweden’s fourth Queen regnant, and the first since 1720, if the heir apparent succeeds to the throne.
In Sweden, around 8,200 people are diagnosed with breast cancer.
There are 60 males among this group.
Despite the fact that breast cancer is the most frequent malignancy in women, owing to modern research, approximately 87 percent of cases live for more than ten years.
Since 2003, the pink ribbon has been used to commemorate Breast Cancer Month, which attempts to raise awareness of the condition as well as donations for cancer research.
While many royals and celebrities are expected to attend, certain sites have been painted pink to commemorate the start of the month.
For the month of October, the Eiffel Tower in Paris was lighted in pink on October 1st.
