Swedish queen battles child sex exploitation

Swedish queen battles child sex exploitation:
Most royals don't speak openly about subjects like sex-trafficking, much less child sex-trafficking, but for Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden it’s a cause that needs shouting from the rooftops.
The global problem of child exploitation has long been her passion.
The mother of three set up the World Childhood Foundation 13 years ago, which has since given nearly $70 million dollars to more than 600 projects fighting child abuse and sexual exploitation in 16 countries.
Financial grants range from a few thousand to as much as a million dollars – a big deal for anti-trafficking groups on the front-lines in the fight against modern slavery.
CNN had a rare opportunity to sit down with Queen Silvia and learn more about her mission.
