I think she is doing very well, as indeed she did when carrying Estelle. At this stage, I think everyone is just really happy to see her happy and blooming and it is insignificant that she is not dressing like a runway model (even a pregnant one!) nor that she has defaulted to her ponytail look.

She's neat, she's tidy, she's blooming and she's there doing her job exactly as we would expect, or more likely as we should have expected. She is Crown Princess Victoria, a role model and an heir to be proud of.

Victoria attends this evening at the Dag Hammarskjöld Lecture held by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the Stockholm City Hall.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met prime minister Stefan Löfven this afternoon, they had a press conference which just ended. Ban Ki-moon said in his speech among other things that he is very pleased that crown princess Victoria agreed to be one of the UN’s advocates for the new Sustainable Development Goals.

Because Victoria was chosen by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as the UN Advocate for the Sustainable Development Global Goals. And Daniel is of course at home with Oscar and Estelle. Just like when Estelle was born, Victoria and Daniel try in the beginning to organize their work events so that the other of them can be at home with the baby.

It wasn't a gala event you'd take your spouse as an escort to. It's not surprising Victoria attended alone.And as lady F said, there is also the added motive of at least one home with the kids.

I think she looks great. That is Vic for you, working right up until she gives birth and than less than a month's maternity leave before she is back.

It was great to see Victoria back! I kind of missed her; I think she looked fine albeit a bit serious.

This was an important event for Victoria and because of that special and she attended. Right now her calendar is empty until 29th April to the King's 70th birthday celebrations. Victoria probably attends at the Council of State meeting where the king tells the name of Carl Philip's baby, and at the Te Deum for the baby. She will probably have some work events before the summer holiday like she had when Estelle was a baby.

The Swedes update the calendar as they go along. Events will be added as time goes. Victoria will likely also be added to some of the events, depending on how she is feeling and how Oscar is. Like the WWF event, she isn't listed yet, but she often attends these with her father. Its understandable that they aren't committing too far in advance to her being at any event and then her having to withdraw.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon praised and thanked the royal family in his lecture:
"I am also grateful for the efforts of Sweden’s Royal Family. King Carl XVI Gustaf is a champion of climate action; Queen Silvia is an advocate of children’s rights; and I am especially pleased that Crown Princess Victoria has just agreed to be one of our Sustainable Development Goal Advocates -- and I welcome her enthusiastic engagement".
Ban Ki-moon thanked also Folke Bernadotte:
"Swedes continue to support UN efforts to prevent and resolve conflicts through mediation and other peaceful means, continuing the noble tradition of Folke Bernadotte, Gunnar Jarring, Olof Rydbeck and Olof Palme"
And he thanked Sweden for many things:
United Nations News Centre - Remarks at Dag Hammarskjöld lecture_ “Evolving Threats, Timeless Values_ The United Nations In A Changing Global Landscape”

Swedish Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961) was the Secretary-General of the UN. On the night of 17-18 September 1961, in the course of a UN mission to try to bring peace to the Congo, Hammarskjöld’s plane crashed near Ndola airport in the British protectorate of Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). All the 16 passengers and crew died. At the end of the year, Dag Hammarskjöld was posthumously awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts "to create peace and goodwill among nations and men."
The Dag Hammarskjöld Lecture is given in memory of Dag Hammarskjöld, and in recognition of the values that inspired him personally and as Secretary-General – compassion, humanism and commitment to international solidarity and cooperation. The invited speaker should be an outstanding international personality who in significant and innovative ways contributes to a more just, peaceful and environmentally sustainable world through valuable achievements in politics or research.
The Annual Dag Hammarskjöld Lecture is co-organised by Uppsala University and the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation. The first lecture was held in 1998.

So wonderful pics. She looks a bit tired, if you ask me. But it must have been a very important event for her, that she decided to join.
