Crown Princess Victoria's Education

25 APRIL 2002 Already well-versed in the field, Princess Victoria of Sweden is further enhancing her knowledge of global affairs by enrolling at the University of Uppsala to study international relations with a focus on democracy, peace and development. It seems her father King Carl XVI Gustav has advised the 24-year-old royal to take the course, a fundamental step for the post she’ll one day occupy as the nation’s queen. “I’ve never had an interest in this type of material,” says Victoria, “but it is absolutely necessary for my preparation as future head of state.” The princess heads to the historic university daily to sit alongside 30 other students from Europe, Africa and South America in Professor Peter Wallensten’s Peace and Conflict Resolution class. The £4,600 course, consisting of intensive research and analysis, won’t lead to any type of degree, but is a logical step for the princess. She already has stints with the United Nations and the Swedish Ministry of Defence under her belt, and just recently returned from a tour of Uganda through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. While she studies the global scene, Victoria’s upcoming official duties are much closer to home. On April 28, she’ll inaugurate the Dunkers house of culture in Helsinborg, and she’s expected to attend the wedding of Princess Martha Louise of Norway in May. And the second week of June, the princess will be an integral part of celebrations as the city of Stockholm celebrates it’s 750th anniversary.

Are you from Sweden, Yennie? ... Maybe you could answer a question for me. I noticed that in the pictures of Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeline graduating they are always wearing what we North Americans think of as white sailor caps. (Maybe they have a different, official name in Sweden?) What is the tradition behind this?

Yes I´m from Sweden...

I dont know exactly why the students wears the white caps..
but its a tradition. When you graduates from gymnasiet (like high school) you wear white clothes and this white cap.
You run out from your school and your family are waiting for you holding a poster with a picture of you as a baby ( VERY embarassing )

like the one that the king holds in thís picture...

Yes she has had many duties since she left school. And my guess is that if she hadn´t had her eating disorder she might have done alot more.
She was in USA for 3 years and during those years she didnt do that many official apperances.

But now she seems to work alot! And she´s studying at the same time... What a superwoman =)

Victoria gullade med lyckliga grisar

Kronprinsessan Victoria är mitt uppe i en praktikperiod inom svenskt jord- och skogsbruk. På torsdagen plogade och harvade hon och gullade med lyckliga grisar.

Lantbrukarnas Riksförbund, LRF, har lagt upp ett studieprogram för Victoria som varar halvannan vecka. Enligt hovet är praktiken en bit på vägen för att nå ''en komplett bild av det svenska samhället''.
På torsdagsmorgonen anlände Victoria till lantbrukaren Magnus Börjesons mönstergård Högåsa på Östgötaslätten utanför Linköping. Han odlar spannmål och föder upp grisar, allt kravmärkt. Kronprinsessan var mycket vetgirig, intygade bonden och hans snart 12-åriga dotter Josefin fyllde i:
- Hon var mest nyfiken på djuren, speciellt grisarna.

Lyckodag
Josefin, som hängde med Victoria hela dagen, hade ett visst tryck på sig; kompisarna i fotbollslaget hade bett henne fråga om inte Victoria kunde bli deras sponsor och andra i närheten ville ha autografer.
- Men hon skriver inga, sade Josefin glatt ändå efter en oförglömlig dag.
Även för den blivande statschefen blev timmarna på Högåsa gård minnesvärda. I jeans, ledig tröja och träningsskor äntrade hon skördetröska och traktorer med plog och harv. Övningskörningen i åkern var till stor belåtenhet för den inkallade presskåren och kameror från lokala och nationella medier gick varma.

Förståelse
- Det är intressant att se hur mekaniskt och tekniskt allt är, sade Victoria och berättade att hon under besöket diskuterat butikspriser, internationellt jordbruk och jämfört det svenska lantbruket före och efter EU-inträdet.
Var är bra och dåligt för Sverige med EU:s jordbrukspolitik?
- Det är i alla fall något som inte jag ska svara på, bemötte Victoria.
- Men det var intressant att få prata om det. Jag får se bredden och får en annan förståelse för Sveriges jordbruk.

Flydde
Magnus Börjeson föder upp ett 1000-tal grisar varje år. De får gå ute i stora beteshagar med naturliga gyttjebad och beskrivs som lyckliga.
I det att gårdens anställda skulle fösa ihop grisarna - för att arrangera en bra bild med kronprinsessan - smet en utbrytargrupp in i svinstallet.
- De flyr pressen, konstaterade hovets informationschef Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg, med ett skratt.

CP Victoria seems very down to earth, I just assumed she had middle class friends as well as upperclass/nobility/royal friends. Does she?

She went to a normal, public school when she was little so I´m sure she met some "normal" kids there, but she went to a really posh and "upperclass" high school.
I´m sure she knows some average Swedish citizens though, Mr Westling for example ,

but most of her friends are upper class. One of her best friends, Caroline Kreuger, is worth 300 million swedish crowns... Not bad for a 26 year old

I don´t know, where I should post this, but does anybody know if Victoria aims to get an university degree. Maybe I´m wrong, but I think that all other crown princes (prince Charles?) have one.
