So Lena you should go and see it when you can
Thank you smudge. Wow, so many praises for the musical...so I guess it´s really good. ABBA was also before me, but I´m though a great fan. And in a way I always see a connection between ABBA and Australia. Of course because of ABBA-the movie (I think there was even a bigger hpye around ABBA in the 70ties than around cp Mary ) and because of one of my favourite movies (Muriel´s wedding...an australian movie), in which the main character, Muriel, listens all the time to ABBA

Thank you for the pictures, Monalisa :)

Thanks for the photos. I think she looks confident and happy. I wonder why.

Sometimes, I think Victoria dresses like a 35-year-old women. But on this trip, she looks great.

I agree with the comments about her hair. Why can't she wear something other than a ponytail every now and then? I hope she will wear her hair down half the time and a ponytail the rest of the time.

I was thinking toothpaste as well, but my first impression was 'pyjamas'. I may be crazy, but I actually own a pair which looks strikingly similar. That is my only complaint about her clothes. Other than that, she has shown class and style throughout this trip and I praise her for that.

An article from the Herald Sun

Swedes have design on fashion

14mar05

THERE must be something in the water in Scandinavia because we've been well and truly inundated with its citizens.

We've had Mary and Fred, Sweden's Princess Victoria and now we've got a former Swedish supermodel in our midst.


After years as a top model for the Ford agency and later a singer, Efva Attling has returned to her first love of jewellery design.

Attling confesses to also harbouring a slight obsession with fashion and plans to squeeze in some shows at the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival in between promoting her jewellery label this week.

"I am a fashion freak," she said.

"My muscles come from carrying Vogues around with me."

Attling's designs have been worn by some of the world's most desirable women -- Paris Hilton, Sharon Stone and Madonna to name just a few.

Princess Victoria, who arrived in Melbourne last week, was wearing one of her necklaces at a royal engagement on Friday.

In many ways, Attling is a personification of the Swedish stereotype: beautiful, blonde, and fascinated by design.

Apparently, the Swedes all love design because "we have all that time in the darkness to think about nice things". She makes it sound so simple.

Thanks for the photos, everybody. Yeah, that jacket looks like a toothpaste. Or one of those multicolor candies. Like a candy cane that you find on American Christmas trees. Looks like ETW has been enjoying the sun a lot as well.

Ouch.

I love the heels she wore to the Swedish Church. It was very stylish.
I really love the recent style of CP Victoria because aside from the fact that she prefers simple kind of attires, she never fails to look elegant and graceful because she never fails to smile and recognize people for their efforts.

Not if it gouges your eye out. :p No, wombats are such sweet animals, and so are koalas, but you do have to be careful. Sometimes they get scared, but Victoria is holding them well. I can't get over how endearing the photos are. I like her sunglasses.

Further proof that the Swedish sisters are the most popular forreign royals in Norway, VG accually has an article on Victorias visit to Australia, usually they never cover what the forreign royals do, granted she needed to be accompanied by a cute Koala named Ash

http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=270299

Quote:
Den svenske kronprinsessen er på reise i Australia og fikk under et besøk i nasjonalparken Healesville Sanctury i dag hilse på de særegne koalabjørnene - pungbjørner som bare finnes i Australia.

Den spesielle bjørnen er ansett for å være modell for den klassiske teddybjørnen, og kronprinsesse Victoria smilte fra øre til øre da hun fikk klemme den lille koalabjørnen Ash.

Den svenske kronprinsessen kom «down under» før helgen. På sin reise skal hun blant annet besøke en svensk designmesse

Well said!

I like your comparisons with Pyjamas and Candy, Danielle and Dennis

Aaawwww, Victoria is cuddling with Blinky Bill and his friends. That´s so cute. I would love to do the same.

@Mixer
We will let this thread open and won´t close it like the news-threads. We have done that with other threads on special trips too. I think the USA 2003-thread is also quite long (?)

Australia was the first country where ABBA seriously took off. They sold more albums here, relative to the population, than anywhere else in the world. Which is why "Muriel's Wedding" and to a lesser degree "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" were based around ABBA music. The producers of both films approached Bjorn and Benny for permission to use the original songs, and permission was given.

MAMMA MIA! ? ...

... Exuberant, joyous, camp and fabulous.

What more could anyone want in a musical?

Go see it, and enjoy!

Ferocious Wombats

This is what Danielle is referring to...

... check out those claws!

(photo from Danielle's last set.)

Wombats and koalas appear to be cute and cuddly, but can more than tear strips off you if they get agitated or upset.
Visiting dignitaries are advised to pass the wombat/koala to their least-favourite media person at the first sign of trouble!

This is a baby wombat in the photo. A full-grown wombat would not only be too heavy to lift, but would probably disembowel you if you tried.

Hahahaha...I haven´t read an article of Aftonbladet´s Daniel Nyhlén today. Maybe he was the "dummy"


Article from HELLO:
http://www.hello-magazine.co.uk/roya...ncessvictoria/

A couple of friendly locals made quite an impression on Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria on the latest stage of her visit to Australia. The 27-year-old broke into a broad smile as she hugged some of the residents at Healsville Animal Sanctuary in Melbourne.

The future queen is well-accustomed to being received by top politicians and statesmen, but who better to welcome her on a trip Down Under than a baby koala bear and a young wombat? Victoria, who is currently promoting Swedish design in Australia, certainly seemed charmed by her furry friends.

The pretty royal had previously shown her playful side by joining in a game of bowls. She appeared to be having a little trouble mastering the sport, but that didn't stop her enjoying her afternoon at Prince's Park Bowling Club.

And the princess proved just as big a hit when she was interviewed by celebrity presenter Melissa Doyle on the popular breakfast show Sunrise. "She was absolutely wonderful," said the journalist afterwards. "She was exactly the kind of person you'd want to invite out with your friends."

Thanks a million to everybody for posting all these wonderful pictures and articles! It's been a bit hard to keep up with all of her activities down there because of the big time difference, and without all your wonderful posts it would've been much harder. Thank you!
