Johan T Lindwall has written a good article of Victoria's and Daniel's visit to Sunday's Expressen.
Ambassador Anders Ljunggren is lyrical when he talks about the incredible response that has been since it became clear that Victoria and Daniel would visit the country: Every third day a new company is registered here in Estonia with Swedish ownership. The attention after such a visit here is invaluable. They meet four to five ministers and the president.
President Toomas Hendrik Ilves and his wife Evelin have a reception in his palace. Afterwards, a happy president summarizes the visit as "excellent".
Toomas Sildam, the presidential office's press officer: It was a genuine visit with many interesting topics. The Crown Princess couple was well prepared.
Jaroslava Platoihhna goes every year to Stockholm in March to Victoria's name day celebrations. Jaroslava is recognized by Victoria: But, are you here? How fun! Are you coming to Stockholm in March next year as well?, Victoria asks.
Victoria about her role: I think it's important to be sensitive in this kind of role. Able to switch between different things. I meet all the time in my job, so many people and it is an important mission to represent Sweden. Victoria realizes that she has both a "symbolic value" for Sweden, while she is a "PR machine": Yes, something like that. Since it is so much more. You have to constantly see the whole. It is extremely important.
Allan Larsson, former finance minister, attended at the seminar on the Baltic Sea: Crown Princess is a great role model in such contexts. She has a dedication that is genuine and passionate.
Lisa Emilia Svensson, marine and aquatic ambassador in Tallinn: Victoria has a confidence at the young people. She is a symbol of the Baltic Sea.
At Ericsson both Victoria and Daniel are joking. At Ericsson's mobile phone base station Victoria suggests that they'll put one out at Haga, they have so incredibly poor coverage there. When they later go into production and must have protective coats on Daniel notes that he has got the right size: XL over the shoulders, he says, and blinks with eye.

On way home after 48 hours in the service of the kingdom, and they are still not tired.
The trick?
- Well, there's probably no tricks, says Victoria. You probably just need to like what you do.
Do you have the best job?
- Yes, no doubt. This I want to do and it's the best job.
At a flight to Arlanda, Victoria falls asleep almost immediately against the window and Daniel talks with the rest of the court delegation.
Victoria said: Mom developed a habit after every trip to come home and tell us kids where they had been and what they had been through. I think she also did it to teach us about the world outside. Now in retrospect, I realize that she made a big service. I have had the enormous advantage of it. For that I am eternally grateful.
