Crown Princess Victoria at the European Athletics Championships; August 2006

Crown Princess Victoria has accepted the invitation to attend the Opening Ceremony of the 19th European Athletics Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden in August.

The Crown Princess has also expressed interest in attending parts of the competitions. The Crown Princess' Household together with the organising committee will plan a schedule for her attendance together.

The Queen is the competition's highest protector, but both the King and Queen have turned down the invitation to attend, which has caused some discussion among sports fans and media, as the King is otherwise a very sports interested person. The Royal Court have said that the Royal Couple will be on private vacation at the time.

Right now Crown Princess Victoria is in Gotheburg on the west coast of Sweden to attend the 19th European Athletics Championships at the Ullevi Stadium.

She looks very tanned (perhaps the Swedish media has also totally missed out on her on a vacation in France...), but that outfit is horrendeous! It looks like something that an old grandma would wear...

She is at a sports event. Would look silly to sit there with a grin on her face all day.

Why would it look silly to smile when opening a sports event? Especially an important international sport event like this. (AND on a day where their golden girl Karolina Klüft basically got handed the gold medal before even starting to compete.)

And who is talking about all day? It was the official opening so it would not be to much to ask that she atleast pretended to like it for 5 minutes, its her job afterall, she looked even more gumpy on TV than on theese pictures

I think she looked good, except for the shirt, it just didn't suit her. The pants were alright, but again, the shirt!! What was she thinking? The tan looks good on her though.

Victoria will award the gold to Carro tonight!


Picture by Aftonbladet Bild

Carolina Klüft has just won her 5th straight championship (6th if you count the junior world title) in heptathlon at the European Championships in Gothenburg tonight! Crown Princess Victoria was in the crowd (I saw someone who looked like Prince Carl Philip as well, but I don't know if it was really him), and just after 9 PM she will be the one to award the gold medal at the prize giving ceremony. "Flower girl" will be the Vice President of the EU Commission, Margot Wallström.


Picture by Carina Olofsson, Göteborgsposten

Crown Princess Victoria watched the morning session at the stadium today, and after that she left together with the General Secretary of the Swedish Athletic Association and her Court Marshal, Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg, to go on the tram together with a group of Swedish athletes.

I think the way her (beautiful) hair is, makes her look a bit harsh. It's usually in a poney tail or just hanging down. She could do lots of things with it (not necessarely elaborate) and it would make her look younger IMO.

In a very emotional prize giving ceremony for the women's heptathlon earlier tonight, Swedish Carolina Klüft received her European gold medal from the hands of Crown Princess Victoria. The 30 000 crowd gave her an enourmous response as she secured the gold, and when she stepped up to receive it - tears came.

Victoria looked great tonight, quite an improvement from the outfit from yesterday, and she was so happy for Carolina. After the ceremony, Carro said to SVT's studio programme:
- To receive the medal from the Crown Princess, hear the national anthem were everyone sang along, it made the tears come when I stood there on the podium.

SVT has the prize giving ceremony online, you can watch it via these links:
Windows Media Player - http://svt.se/content/1/c6/63/55/65/...-kluftpris.asx
Real Player - http://svt.se/content/1/c6/63/55/65/...-kluftpris.ram

Pictures 1-5 are by Alexander Hassenstein/Bongarts/Getty Images (the last one without watermark is via Aftonbladet), pictures 6-7 are screencaps from SVT via Aftonbladet.
