Quite normal mood i would say. Many people is excited and happy for Victoria, Daniel and Estelle, that their family is growing and wants to see the newborn. Or maybe newbornS. There is alot of speculation about wether it is twins. But there is no media hystery.

Victorias obstetrician during Estelle's birth Lennart Nordström was interviewed in "Aftonbladet" today about delivery procedures at Karolinska University Hospital.

He did not comment about wether he is the obstetrician this time too. Ofcourse the journalist had to ask him about wether he belive it is twins (as if they would expect any yes/no answers from a doctor !) and he responded perfectly : "I don't want to comment, i never guess, i am a pro" ��

I'm surprised the twins speculation is still going, even now. The court may have announced if Victoria were going to have twins, but this would be one birthday gift to the king if it were true. I know other royal and princely houses announced twin royals - Denmark and Monaco - but maybe Sweden chooses to be different. I'm glad they are leaving the Crown Princess Family be at this time. I'm also glad no paparazzi are stalking the local hospitals or Haga Palace, hoping to catch Victoria with Daniel carrying the overnight bag.

If it were twins, how would the palace handle the christening? Has there any history of royal twins born? The palace would have to re-write the protocol.

I don't get the speculation either. Victoria and Dan have outright said IIRC that they are only expecting one child. It would be one thing if they just never responded to the questions, but to out right deny its twins if they are expecting them?? If it is twins I assume it will be a surprise to all including the couple.

I would think the baptism would be held along the lines of the Danish twins. I wouldn't think there would be any need for much change from a single baptism. I don't believe there is any history of twins in the family, at least close to the throne.

Doesn't protocol dictate there are witnesses from the court for a royal birth? I imagine it would be necessary if there were twins for they need to keep the succession order straight. As for the christening, how would they get two parade cradles? They can't use the one Estelle had because it's meant for the heir. And the christening gown - it's an heirloom that has all the names of the royal successors stitched in. Unless there is an extra gown in case of twins this would be hard.

Cradle: AFAIR There is the cradle of Karl XI used by the heir. There is the cradle of Charles XV which was used by Madeleine and her children. Thereis also a 'parade cradle' which was traditionally used for princesses, and seems to be the one used for Victoria's baptism. If she was having twins, I'd suspect they would use the Charles and the one used for Victoria.

As for the gown a replica likely would have to be made. Unless like the Danes they have a secondary gown.

As for witnesses

Quote:
On the occasion of a royal birth, a statement of witness is drawn up in accordance with tradition. This is done on the day after the birth, unless the birth takes place on a Saturday, in which case the statement of witness is drawn up on the following Monday.

The Speaker, the Prime Minister, the Marshal of the Realm and the Mistress of the Robes are the witnesses. The statement of witness is signed and sealed by these witnesses.
The days they are in the birthing room are thankfully over. But they do sign off on it. Considering if it was twins, they aren't first and second in line, there would be no reason to lie anyways about birth order, even if for some reason Victoria wanted a son to be ahead of a daughter

Victoria met today Annika Söder (State Secretary to Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström), Ulrika Modéer (State Secretary to Minister for International Development Cooperation Isabella Lövin) and Annelie Roswall Ljunggren (State Secretary to Minister for Public Administration Ardalan Sherakabi) at the Royal Palace.
At the meeting they discussed about the UN's global goals for sustainable development and Crown Princess's ambassadorship for global goals.

When Victoria was expecting Estelle, she had an official engagement (a lunch with the finnish prime minister, IIRC) two days before Estelle was born. She has said that she will keep working as long as she feels fine, and I see no reason why she should stop if she feels okay. Just staying home and waiting doesn't really strike me as her thing.. :)

If she is still feeling good and up to it good for her

Estelle came a bit early so she probably had no idea when she was meeting with the Finish president, her baby would come 2 days later

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.

The court just updated Victoria's calendar:
Victoria attends on Wednesday evening at the Stockholm City Hall at the Dag Hammarskjöld Lecture held by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Boel Lindbergh, the Head of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs International Press Centre, confirmed Victoria's attendance to Expressen.

The title of the lecture is “Evolving threats, timeless values: the United Nations in a changing global landscape”.

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.
