About the last day at the court website
Kronprinsessparets besök i Colombia*– dag 3 - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

Johan T Lindwall writes that Victoria and Daniel come back to Sweden today after having been away for almost a week on the other side of the globe. In five intense days, they had time for both Peru and Colombia. The purpose of the visit was to strengthen relations between the countries and the Crown Princess is pleased with the visits:
- There have been important and interesting meetings. The Swedish companies and the relations between the two countries have been in focus.
The visit began Monday in Lima, Peru, where the focus was on increased interaction between countries, among other in studies.
- We visited a university that has an exchange with Sweden. It was very interesting to sit down and talk to all the students and hear their dreams.
In Peru met Victoria and Daniel country's President Ollanta Humala.
- We talked about Peru and Sweden. There is a great interest for Sweden in Peru and we were told about the enormous progress the country has made at all levels.
Victoria underlines the importance of being an ambassador for Sweden.
- It is important to promote Sweden and Swedish companies. Open up and try to be the one who helps.
Now when they come back home to Sweden again, there is a special little person who has longed extra much: Estelle, of course.
She got this time to stay at home with grandparents Ewa and Olle Westling.
- She's just doing brilliantly, Victoria confirmed when her daughter was mentioned before leaving home again to Sweden and Haga Palace.

Johan T Lindwall's documentary about the whole visit on today's Expressen, some things about that:
Monday
It is Victoria's first visit in Peru. Jakob Kiefer, Swedish ambassador in Chile and Peru, explains how important the royal visit is.
- It confirms the good relations that exist between our countries. That the president receives them and wants a longer meeting with the Crown Princess Couple shows how important this visit is for our countries.
The Marshal of the Court, Karolin A. Johansson, The Head of Victoria's Household was of course with them on the trip:
- The Crown Princess and Prince are very involved in the planning and all obviously want it to be as good as possible for this kind of visit. There are several topics to be covered and there the Crown Princess Couple is with and decides.
Later they meet President Ollanta Humala in El Palacio del Gobierno. When Victoria and Daniel leave, they are both satisfied. They have spoken with the president for several hours. Sweden's ambassador told later about the meeting:
- It was planned a lunch in about an hour, and it lasted for over two hours. It was a conversation on topics that both the President and the Crown Princess Couple emphasizes as education, health and welfare. In the longer term we will see the results of a trip like this and how important it is.
Tuesday
The security level has been raised because the group is transported through the most poor areas of Lima's outskirts. A police helicopter escorts Victoria and Daniel's car all the way to Lima's southern suburbs. Marcus Hörberg receives the pair at Volvo and he like so many others during the trip certifies "how incredibly great symbolic value" Crown Princess couple's visit has. The visit to Cancer Institute INEN shakes everyone in the group. Victoria has a hard time holding back the tears as she sits and talks to the children with the help of an interpreter.
Wednesday
A visit in Cartagena to the ACR, working with channeling former guerrillas into society. Afterwards, Victoria speaks about the importance of the work.
- It is very interesting to see how they work and how important their work is. In these times it is more important than ever, she says.
Thursday
Victoria and Daniel wake up to the news about the school attack in Trollhättan. Instead of leaving directly from the Swedish residence Victoria chooses to make a statement. She is noticeably shaken:
- You wake up to a big shock when you see the news. It is a sad day for Sweden. There is something terrible that has hit the entire country.
On the visit to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in his palace Casa de Nariño in central Bogota, security is highest during the whole trip. President highlights the importance of the relations between the two countries, and afterwards Victoria explains that it "was a very important and good meeting for the countries' relationship."
Friday
The visit ends with a lunch at the Swedish residence. Victoria and Daniel are now extremely tired. Even for Crown Princess Victoria who is used to travel, the trip has been exhausting. But those who asked how it was with her and pregnant belly in the scorching heat, she replied repeatedly diplomatically:
- I am feeling very well.
Little Princess Estelle had to stay home in Sweden with grandparents Olle and Ewa Westling. Every day Victoria and Daniel spoke to Estelle over the phone. Each time Victoria was given a gift to the daughter she beamed and promised to take it home to Sweden.

It sounds like a successful visit. I like the fact that Estelle has strong ties with her paternal grandparents. You don't see pictures of them (probably for security reasons).

Sidenote: Fashion wise Victoria wore great maternity. She showed practicality when she switched out to flats for the walking tour.

A good view of the heavy security around them during this trip.

Some things from the article:
Victoria revealed that she doesn't speak spanish, "just gracias"
Victoria and Daniel were served closely produced wine. Victoria couldn't of course taste it, and Daniel sipped a little politely.
At every building they visited there were snipers, Peru and Colombia have high criminality.
One can not plan everything, at the walk in Lima Daniel got some bird guano to his jacket.
Daniel treats Victoria like she was a queen.

This trip combined Victoria's interest in environment and sustainability and Daniel’s interest in entrepreneurship and one could see that they had been looking forward to this trip for a long time. It is of course hard to be away from Estelle, but they will have a lot to tell her when they come home, all from the children they have met to what they have eaten.
- We will absolutely taste some of the traditional courses, Daniel said.
Guinea pig perhaps?
- No, I don't know about that. You will have to taste that first anyway!
The traditional dish ceviche was served at the lunch with president Ollanta Humala and his wife. The whole trip was planned along Victoria’s pregnancy and fish dishes which normally are rarely served were now cooked. Adjutant Helena Sigurdsson is quickly there both with hand sanitizer and water bottles when Victoria needs them. But the biggest support she gets from Daniel. As soon as she shows even a little sign of tiredness, he is there with a helping hand. The joy about the baby combined to the exciting trip has created an incredible warmth between them. And certainly it is seen that they are living time of expecting. During the visit to H&M it isn’t latest model jeans or great lights that capture their interest. Instead of that, they spend a lot of time at the baby clothing department.
- Oh, how cute, says Daniel when he touches a baby body.
Then a six hour flight to Cartagena, there is 34 degrees Celsius and it feels like 100 percent humidity. But the crown princess doesn't complain. Instead she is the happy, spirited and curious Victoria we know so well. Victoria and Daniel really make a south-american success. Where ever they come, the people want to congratulate. A Peruvian journalist even asks if they have found out if it will be a boy or a girl.
- No, we don't know yet, we will see, Victoria says.
Last and final stop – Bogotá. The trip is coming to it’s end and with the whole week's impressions and a height difference of over 2600 meters, the crown princess couple is ready to come home. They would describe the trip anything else than tough but it is work. And it is lucky that there is two of them.
- Daniel is my big support, Victoria says before the flight takes them home to Haga.

Svensk Damtidning has 2 "behind the scenes" –article about the trip at this week's issue, they have told some of those things also at the articles of the trip. The Marshal of the Court, Karolin A. Johansson tells that the planning of this kind of trips starts about a half a year before the trip. Victoria wants to know whom she will meet and what she will do, as soon as possible. She wants to prepare herself well. In addition to Karolin A. Johansson, Victoria’s chambermaid/stylist Tina Törnquist and adjutant Helena Sigurdsson were with at the trip. Victoria has great trust on them, they are always close and help with everything.
Tina Törnquist plans the clothing at the trip in a good time before the trip. She takes care of the luggage and bags on the trip. If the weather is windy, the adjutant has an extra cardigan or jacket and often also a pair of comfortable shoes at her bag for Victoria. It may seem that Victoria is surprised when she gets gifts, but often leaving gifts to Victoria and Daniel is discussed and agreed in advance, because of the security reasons. Victoria may not receive gifts which are wrapped and the persons who gave gifts have been adviced to put gifts to the transparent cellophane. The adjutant takes care of all the gifts and they will go with Victoria and Daniel to the Haga Palace. At the trip Victoria got a little toy from the Peruvian students, among other things.
The program is tight and the royals have often no time to wash their hands, especially after having shaken hands of hundreds of people. Victoria and the adjutant have always hand sanitizers and moist tissues in their bags.
The royals don’t write autographs, but they, especially Victoria, have started to pose in selfies. Victoria doesn’t introduce herself with her name, she gives her hand and nods. Cheek kissing isn’t used at the official context, that is reserved for family and friends.
If there is time at the program, Daniel likes to have some small talk with the press, he is very easygoing. The breakfast is served at their suite and the SÄPO-guards are at the surrounding room. At the flight Victoria sits at the front, willingly beside the window, her favourite place is 1F.

Victoria delivered on behalf of the king the Order of the Polar Star to Gustavo Molina Núñez at the ambassador's reception on Thursday 22nd October. The Order was granted because of his devotion at the service of the Kingdom of Sweden for 20 years as Honorary Consul.
