Crown Princess Victoria at the Equitana in Essen: February 26, 2005

First pic of Victoria visiting the Equitana (fair for horse sports) in Essen. Wonder how this skirt (?) looks in detail. (Fotomarktplatz)

Here are more pics from Fotomarktplatz...title: "how to get out of a carriage and how to show legs while doing"
Finally something different. I think the outfit would look nice without the jacket (strange mix: formal with informal) and when the shirt would have an other colour.

Loved the videos from Gotland. I fear that it may not work for some people because it is on Quicktime. That flame looked a little too windblown though. Nice photos from the Equitana. Maybe a different jacket would have been better.

Have any of you noticed that when Victoria wears glasses she looks a lot like her father and when she doesn't she looks like her mother?

Translation of an Expressen article today:

A muzzle – then the Crown Princess lights up

Essen, Germany.
Chaos broke loose when Crown Princess Victoria yesterday opened the Swedish pavilion at the world’s biggest equestrian fair in Essen. Ten big security guards were required to protect Victoria from the cheering, royalist crowd in the Republic of Germany.
- Touching, says Victoria to Expressen.

Crown Princess Victoria causes a bigger stir in Germany than home in Sweden. The four thousand people in the audience screamed, stood up and stomped on the floor when Victoria was taken around the arena in a carriage driven by horses from the Royal Mews in Sweden.

The host of the opening said “Crown Princess Victoria” 22 times during his opening speech. And so it is. When Victoria opened the Swedish pavilion, it was closed off with a fence and security guards.

Big “horse country”
But when Victoria spotted Expressen’s reporter, she said:
- I didn’t know that Expressen is interested in horses!

We’re interested in everything.
- That’s good.
Is the Crown Princess interested in horses?
- Yes, definitely. Unfortunately I don’t ride at the moment, but I hope to continue with it.
Why is it important to support the Swedish equestrian sport?
- Sweden is a big horse country. It’s not until the recent years that weave started to understand how many people are involved in the equestrian sport.
A whole industry has developed around this.
- 26 Swedish companies are represented here. There are those who say that Sweden has the most horses in Europe counted per capita. That’s great.
The Swedish companies’ chances here?
- It’s darn tough to come here as a Swedish company and compete with German ones. It’s cocky.
You encounter and enormous attention here in Germany from the media and public. Someone just told me that many people here consider you as Germany’s Crown Princess. That sounds a bit...cheeky.
Victoria laughs
- That’s a sweet thing to say. There’s a great turnout, I must say. One is always as moved. It gets intense sometimes.
That was quite and understatement.
- But it is nice; it’s fun to be able to bring home to Sweden.
