When Sandra got to meet the Swedish Prince

I had already met my prince, 17 years or so ago – but not too long ago I got to meet another kind of prince. The Swedish Prince, Prince Carl Philip!

This was all part of a design delegation organised and put together by The Consul General, Business Sweden and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce here in Hong Kong and what a productive and fun four days we had of cocktailing, chatting, networking, dining and talking design! Needless to say, as it shows very well in the photos…

I was a little nervous. I regret that I didn’t speak with more confidence about my designs and about my passion for designing but talking isn’t my strong point. Designing is.

The Prince said he really liked my pepper grinders and especially the red one. He said that he liked how they were ergonomically designed to fit well in the hand and felt so comfortable to use. I’m glad he picked up on that, being a designer himself. Thanks Carl Philip! It was a pleasure to meet you!
