The mother-of-two was chosen by readers of QX magazine to be honoured at the publication’s annual ‘Gay Gala’.

Posting on Instagram, the Swedish royal, 43, shared a glamorous photo holding her award explaining that she’s ‘proud and happy’ to have been chosen by the readers of the popular LGBTQ magazine. 

Looking red carpet ready, Victoria donned a frothy green floor length gown and wore her hair swept back in a glamorous updo.  

She received the honour as a result of the speech she gave at Stockholm Pride Event last year, urging people to speak up for those who don’t have a voice.

Beaming in two photos, she shared quotes from a letter to readers of the publication translated from Swedish, saying: ‘I was really proud and happy for the fine award from QX’s readers. It means a lot to me. Thanks!

‘The past year has been a challenge in various ways. In many parts of the world, human rights work has been hampered or hindered by the pandemic.

‘Therefore, it is now particularly important that we continue to work everyday for a world where LGBTQ people are given the opportunity to live in freedom and without oppression. A world where you can be just who you are, and be proud of it.’  

The Swedish Royal urged those in attendance at Stockholm Pride last year to not only celebrate the work that has been done, but to also remember what else remains to be done.

‘This is a responsibility that we all share. You and I. We must not stay silent. We must speak up for those who do not dare to speak, those who are not allowed to, and those who cannot,’ She said, as reported by Royal Central.
