Tomorrow, Monday, the crown princess couple goes to Vietnam to talk about Swedish business and sustainability.
- There is a lot of work behind such a trip. It is an official trip that is planned together with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, says Margareta Thorgren.
Thorgren means that Victoria and Daniel have had to study hard for to stay in order to get the most out of the visit.
- Such trips are planned carefully in detail together with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and there is quite a lot of pre-studies. There is a lot of reading and some speeches that the Crown Princess will hold. It's a lot of work.
However, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar stay home in Sweden and go to school while mom and dad are on the move.
- They don't take the children with them, it's an official trip. They are home and go in their respective schools. Since it is a trip that has been planned for a long time, there is a preparation and handling of how the children are taken care of.

The schedule for the days has changed since they originally posted it and the court told me that it could change again. Theyve taken off Victoria meeting with students on Day 2 and now have both her and Daniel meeting with young people on day 1.

Yes, I noticed it already yesterday. The change has been made probably because the meeting with the prime minister has been rescheduled from Monday to Tuesday.

Victoria and Daniel have arrived to Hanoi, photo at Instagram of a reporter of Swedish Radio in Asia. They are seen with Pereric Hgberg, the ambassador of Sweden to Vietnam.

The president of Vietnam has been obviously seriously ill for some weeks, that is why Victoria and Daniel met the Vice President.

Svensk Damtidning's reporter tells about the meeting with the vice president. Preparations at the Presidential Palace were going on until the last minute. The dress code to the press was dark suit. Being outdoors in Hanoi feels like being in a sauna. After the group photo was taken in front of the bust of Ho Chi Minh, Victoria and Daniel had tea with the vice president. It is clear to everyone that Victoria is the heir to the the throne and the future Head of State. She shines pondus and at the same time Daniel takes a step back. His role is to support the future Head of State and he thrives well in his role.

I'm not sure about Svensk Damtidning's characterization of the crown princess couple. I have the impression that both are charismatic and carry out their own projects for the Crown and there are no concerns about Prince Daniel potentially outshining his wife. Both of them appear to have areas of interest reflected in the program for the visit (sustainable development, young entrepreneurs).

But the Vietnamese authorities do seem to be treating this visit seriously, which is nice to see.

Why wouldn't they treat it seriously ? It is an official visit from the future Swedish Head of State after all.

The Crown Princess couple visit Vietnam
On May 6-8, the Crown Princess Couple and the Ann Linde, the Minister for Foreign Trade, are visiting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Upon arrival in Hanoi, the Crown Princess Couple and minister Ann Linde were given a guided tour of Hotel Metropole's historic parts. Hotel Metropole is a traditional hotel that during the Vietnam War housed correspondents and embassies. Sweden was the first western country to establish diplomatic relations with Vietnam in 1969 and the first Swedish embassy had its office at Hotel Metropole 1970-1971.
After showing the hotel, the Crown Princess Couple and the minister met prominent Vietnamese women over a lunch where they talked about women's situation in today's Vietnam.
At an official ceremony, Vice President Mrs. Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh received the Crown Princess Couple and the minister at the Presidential Palace. After the official meeting, they visited a traditional wooden house built on piles adjacent to the palace. Former President Ho Chi Minh is said to have lived there during his presidency.
At upper secondary school Thuc Nghiem, the Crown Princess couple met students and talked to them about opportunities and challenges for young people in Vietnam.
In the afternoon, the Crown Princess Couple and the minister met with the Chairwoman of the National Assembly Mrs. Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan. During the meeting, 50 years of diplomatic relations between Sweden and Vietnam were highlighted, and the Chairwoman showed the National Assembly.
The day ended on the presidential palace with the Vietnamese government's official welcome dinner hosted by the Vice President. During dinner, the Crown Princess held a speech:
"Ladies and gentlemen, Prince Daniel and I are delighted to be here in Vietnam in the company of the largest Swedish business delegation ever to your country.
It is my hope that many new contacts will be established over the next few days. And that will open up new opportunities for cooperation and partnership.
We also look very much forward to welcoming your Prime Minister and his government colleagues to Sweden in just a few weeks."

Victoria's speech where she also said
"Unfortunately, our stay here is quite short this time. But I sincerely hope that Prince Daniel and I can come back in the future, to experience the sights and sounds of Vietnams green hills, its forests and its wildlife."

Victoria and Daniel met today The Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan. Victoria has met her before, when the Chairwoman visited Sweden on 7th April 2017:

Svensk Damtidning's reporter Helena Wiklund about the dinner and Victoria and Daniel in Hanoi by night.
Back in the presidential palace again! Now for tonight's great welcome dinner. The vice president was the hostess of the midnight blue velvet and Victoria floated into a short-sleeved full-length dress in coral, blue and white. It was set up at seven large round tables and among the guests were the Minister Ann Linde, Sweden's ambassador Pereric Hgberg and super entrepreneur Gunilla von Platen. There were 80 guests at the dinner.
For entertainment, traditional Vietnamese music was offered. But the musicians had a little surprise, they had practiced a genuine Swedish folk song. There they added extra charm points to Prince Daniel!
- What a nice evening. And I was impressed by the folk song, he said when we met him after dinner.
But despite the long menu, this was a quick dinner. An hour and ten minutes after the Crown Princess held her speech (with beautiful words about Vietnam's nature and large forests), the feast was already over and the Crown Princess couple continued out in the Hanoi night. An impulsive program that Victoria and Daniel quickly added to experience everyday life in Hanoi - by night!
And for a while, the Crown Princess couple were just Victoria and Daniel. A couple who spent an evening walking around in the crowd after a busy time at work. However, followed by a small press summit and a few court employees. And some curious looks, of course.

Svensk Damtidning about the lunch
The Crown Princess couple Victoria and Daniel sat at different tables, so that they could talk to as many people as possible and everyone ate the same food.
This day it was Bun Bo Nam Bo at the street kitchen, a Vietnamese classic with wok steak and noodles.
How did it taste?
- Delicious! confirmed the royal duo!
And it wasn't quite as daring as it looked, this place was test drived before by the embassy staff, who usually slip in here for a bite to eat.
- The Crown Princess couple didn't really believe that we at the embassy usually eat our lunches here, but we actually do! ambassador Pereric Hgberg laughed.

Victoria said at her speech in the Summit that it was "an honor" for her and Prince Daniel to be there.
- Our two countries have developed a strong and sustainable friendship, a friendship built on trust and mutual respect. We have moved from help to trade and we share a strong belief in the future. Now we are ready to explore the future - together, Victoria said.
Victoria p besk i Hanoi – hll tal p Sweden-Vietnam business summit

Crown Princess Victoria has a twinkle in her eye! One of the most sweetest meetings of the day was with the craftsman who suddenly surprised her with a ring of straw. Victoria burst into the gap and waved happily with the engagement ring.
- Oh sorry, but I'm already married. With that one on my finger I would get trouble at home!
The place was the sustainable craft village of Phu Vinh Bamboo in Chuong My outside Hanoi.
Victoria was satisfied when she went shopping, completely private. Among other things, she bought on a basket bag for 5,000,000 Vietnamese dollars. Aide-de-camp Carin picked up purse, but calm, if you convert to Swedish currency, it will be SEK 2,000. To her home Victoria also got a braided basket, perfect to have as a bread dish at home on Haga!

The court at its website about the second day
The second day in Hanoi began with the Crown Princess opening the Sweden-Vietnam Business Summit with a speech:
“Our two countries have developed a strong and lasting friendship; a friendship built on trust and mutual respect. We have moved from trade to trade and we share a strong belief in the future. Now, we are ready to explore that future - together. ”
Sweden-Vietnam Business Summit was arranged by Business Sweden and the Swedish Embassy in Hanoi in collaboration with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce.
In the afternoon, Prince Daniel and Minister for Foreign Trade Ann Linde stayed at the Business Summit, while the Crown Princess went on to the UN.
At the UN headquarters in Vietnam, all UN agencies are gathered in The Green One UN House. The Crown Princess received a display of the house, information about the UN's work in Vietnam and the work on Agenda 30 with a particular focus on sustainable development and small-scale production in the countryside.
Together with UN representatives, the Crown Princess went on to Phu Vinh Bamboo Village. The village is part of a UN project aimed at increasing employment in rural areas through sustainable design and production. Craftsmen in the village showed the Crown Princess the handmade products of bamboo and rattan.
In conclusion of the second day, the Crown Princess Couple and the minister were received by Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc. They discussed, among other things, the relations between the two countries, with a focus on Sweden and Vietnam this year paying attention to 50 years of diplomatic relations.
The evening ended with a dinner in the Văn Miếu Temple which Hanoi's Mayor Nguyen Duc Chung hosted. During dinner, the Crown Princess held a speech:
“Ladies and gentlemen, Sweden and Vietnam enjoy a long standing friendship. Now, by doing business together, by learning from each other, and by working together, we are building that friendship even stronger for generations to come.”

Victoria's speech at the Sweden-Vietnam Business Summit, she said among other things:
"In my role as Advocate for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, I welcome Vietnam’s commitment to achieve the 2030 Agenda. And I would like to stress that sustainability and trade are not mutually exclusive. On the contrary, they are both critical to the long-term survival of our planet."

Victoria's speech at the official dinner for Sweden-Vietnam Business Summit, she said among other things:
"Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet with some young pupils. As an Advocate for the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development it was especially interesting to hear about their views on their country, the world and the future.
In 2030, these adolescents will be young adults. The 2030 Agenda is a promise to them. But it is up to us to start fulfilling that promise – and to do it now. In that process, sustainable trade, innovation and collaboration will play a crucial role."

Svensk Damtidning's reporter Helena Wiklund writes:
Historic site for Victoria's speech in Hanoi
At the same place where the royal couple had their return dinner during a state visit 15 years ago, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel were now invited to dinner. But the rain almost cancelled it!
The evening's royal dinner became a little more exciting than it was supposed to. The rain took care of that. The tables were set outdoors, in the courtyard… The big white baldachins managed the worst rainfall, but some tables had the misfortune of being without parasols and they had to start building rain shelter in light panic.
The four red brick buildings around the large courtyard were once Hanoi's first university. Here, the city's mayor gave a dinner to the honor of the Crown Princess couple, but also to celebrate that the diplomatic relations between Sweden and Vietnam celebrate 50 years this year.
We can reveal that Victoria hasn't a hairdresser from Sweden with her at this trip and she doesn't use local hairdresser either. So either Sweden's Crown Princess is crazy good at setting up her own hair, or her chambermaid Tina Trnqvist takes care of her hair.
