Victoria and Daniel have got a couple of very busy days and the visit seems to be very successful.

Visit has been noticed also in Estonian online media.

Nothing new there, same photos.
But it is noteworthy, because royal news aren´t common in Estonian media. The Duchess of Cambridge is probably the only exception.

"Life stories of the veterans give hope" - Princess Victoria of Sweden
The heir to the Swedish throne spoke with the demobilized and got to knew the work of the Colombian Agency for Reintegration in building peace in Colombia. Crown Princess of Sweden expressed her admiration after listening to former combatants in the reintegration process. The heir to the throne of the European country, accompanied by her husband, Prince Daniel; Minister of Infrastructure, Anna Johansson and other members of the Swedish Government, were at the headquarters of the ACR Bolivar, where the Director General of the Agency, Joshua Mitrotti, made a presentation of the work undertaken by the entity.
Princess Victoria and her companions heard the life stories of five demobilized combatants of illegal armed groups who are now in the process of social and economic reintegration by the ACR. Crown Princess Victoria shared her words of admiration for the courage and the desire to get ahead in the legality, represented in the stories of demobilized.
"The stories I've heard from the ex-combatants impress me very much. They give hope to future generations", said the princess visibly moved and with admiration.
One of the demobilized who spoke with Princess Victoria and her husband, was Mayerline Torres, veteran in the process of social reintegration since 2003 when he decided to leave the armed group to which he belonged, along with his fellow. Mayerline never thought he would tell the story of his life before, during and after having belonged to an illegal armed group, to "to such an important global personality. A very successful person and listened to us attentively". "For her there was not enough time and she wanted to keep asking about aspects of our life, the reasons that led us to join these groups, our decision to get out and what we do to go forward on the legality", he added.

Johan T Lindwall writes that Victoria's popularity is huge in Sweden and the popularity seems to have followed to Cartagena in northern Colombia. When Victoria and Daniel yesterday began their first official visit to Colombia attention was great. In their heels a mess media attention followed the entire time.
- Yes, there were very many, noted Victoria diplomatically when she and Daniel tried to get around inside Cartagena's old town.
Occasionally Victoria and Daniel stayed during the guided tour and could not help smiling at the situation with the enthusiastic journalists.
- Crazy, was Daniel's spontaneous comment when he saw all that screamed his wife's name and tried to get her attention.
In Colombia the Royal couple highlighted the 140 years of diplomatic relations between the countries.
But what all were most interested in were precisely Victoria and her prince. The Crown Princess herself was excited to be in Colombia.
- Yes, we have had a great reception. It's a fantastic place. Cartagena is a very beautiful and nice city, with a tremendous history and incredible cultural richness. I am happy to have experienced this as a part of the trip.
Victoria and Daniel promote Sweden and sell in the Swedish companies. At a trading seminar, the companies will later have the opportunity to make contacts.
- I hope that the companies can come to concrete decisions and strengthen cooperation between our countries. I think the most important thing on a trip like this is to develop our relations and make it even better. With all these meetings and by showing how Sweden can help. There are a number of Swedish technological solutions that can be used in Colombia.
Were is Estelle? Is she secretly with on the trip?
- No, she is with Daniel's parents and has a good time, Victoria says and laughs.
On the video Lindwall asks how Victoria is doing, it is very hot in Cartagena. Victoria says that she is doing very well. After the walk they will have a match-making lunch with swedish and colombian companies. And then they will visit the port, which is very important for Cartagena and there are some swedish technical solutions.

Svensk Damtidning writes that the security on this visit is at very high level. The procession of cars is long and there have been snipers on every rooftop that Victoria and Daniel go by both in Peru and Colombia.

@Lady Finn - I'm not surprised about the high security for Victoria and Daniel. This is the future Royal Couple. Sapo tagged along on their honeymoon. It may not have been as romantic as they hoped, but it is necessary.

It's nice to hear how popular Victoria is.

Victoria and Daniel flew yesterday evening from Cartagena to Bogota. They started their second day in Colombia at a meeting about sustainable trade with swedish and colombian companies.
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CR7dwXXXAAQWtG6.jpg:large

The social and environmental commitment of 11 Swedish companies in Colombia.
For years, Swedish companies with operations in Colombia are among the most prominent in sustainability plans. The reason? Since 2004, the agency Kreab with Swedish origin and the Swedish Embassy in Colombia have led the creation of an enterprise network that cares about plans have strong and consistent corporate social responsibility to the Colombian context.
With the arrival of Princess Victoria to Cartagena, there are other companies that will also share their initiatives in terms of social responsibility. Firms such as ABB, Bromma Industries, Saab, together with Business Sweden, will be environmentally sustainable, with environmentally friendly solutions and will announce plans to boost trade between Sweden and the Colombian Caribbean, especially in terms of infrastructure.
Noticias Económicas de Colombia y el Mundo. - larepublica.co

Crown Princess Victoria is in South America but has been reached by the terrible news of the attack on the school in Trollhättan.
- It is day of sadness for Sweden. I am very touched, she told to Svensk Damtidning. The photo is old.
Victoria om sorgen _ Svensk Damtidning

Like most other Swedes - Victoria and Daniel had early got the terrible news from Sweden and the school murders in Trollhättan.
Expressen met in the morning Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel at the Swedish embassy in Bogota.
- You wake up to a big shock when you see the news, said a muted Victoria with Daniel at her side.
- It is a sad day for Sweden. Something terrible has affected the whole country.
The Crown Princess dropped words and was repeatedly forced to collect herself. So taken she was by the news from home Sweden:
- Naturally, our thoughts go primarily to the victims' families and their loved ones.
Victoria put her hands over her chest. Then she shook her head and said briefly:
- I'm very, very touched. This has affected the entire society very greatly.
She and Daniel then went quietly away into their car to continue the official program.

Victoria's Pregnancy

Hi All,

Looking at the lovely photos on the Hello! website, am I the only one who thinks that Victoria looks much more than four months pregnant? I know you always 'show' more with subsequent pregnancies, but I think the likelihood of her going all the way to March is slim (excuse the pun!) . For what it's worth, I think she is carrying a boy ..... we'll see.

The same was true for her first pregnancy. I was certain she would give birth before the end of the year yet Princess Estelle was born end of February. Crown Princess Victoria simply gets very big early on in her pregnancies.
