In November this year she will go to Washington, New York ond Philadelphia.

She did not go to the US in April due to the War, She stayed in Sweden because her father and she is always near Sweden with things are not well in the world

Any new information is what I meant to say. I knew all of that. In April she was supposed to go the Philly and a small town near here called Swedesboro which was founded 350 years ago.

Swedish princess to visit Del. briefly
Nov. trip rescheduled from April
By ROBIN BROWN
Staff reporter
10/05/2003

Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria plans to visit Delaware next month, after postponing a trip in April because of the Iraq war and terrorism concerns, organizers said.

But her visit Nov. 8 will be shorter than the full day planned in April for the 365th anniversary of the Swedes' and Finns' landing in Wilmington.

Victoria will be in Delaware only from about 11 a.m. until 1 or 2 p.m., said Delaware Swedish Colonial Society member Frances Allmond of Brandywine Hundred. "We're all very excited, of course, but we're just sorry that she won't be able to spend more time with us."

Alfred Nicolosi, spokesman for the Philadelphia-based Swedish Colonial Society that is hosting the 25-year-old princess, said the visit will be so short that the public will have little chance to see her.

Coming from a brief stay in New York, he said, the princess will visit three Wilmington sites:

• Fort Christina Park, where the Swedes landed in 1638 at a location called The Rocks and began the state's first permanent European settlement.

• The Kalmar Nyckel Shipyard, where she will tour the replica of the settlers' ship and meet members of the Lenape tribe, whose ancestors aided the early settlers.

• The Delaware History Museum, run by the Historical Society of Delaware on Wilmington's Market Street Mall, for a buffet reception in her honor.

The first two events will be free and open to the public, but the event at the museum will be by invitation only, Allmond said.

At the museum, the princess finally will get to see portraits displayed there of the Rev. Ericus Björk - the first pastor of Old Swedes Church, opened in 1698 - and his wife, Christina Stalcup. Officials from the Swedish embassy in Washington, D.C., stood in for the princess when she was to unveil them in April after restoration for their world debut.

The paintings, said to be the oldest oil portraits painted in Delaware, are on loan from a Stockholm museum and were restored in a project financed by the Swedish Colonial Society.

From Delaware, the princess is to visit Philadelphia, then leave the country that night.

Educated at Yale, she is the oldest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, who re-enacted the historic landing in Wilmington in 1988 for its 350th anniversary. She is next in line to the Swedish throne.

About 5 million Swedish-Americans live in the U.S., although there is no breakdown for Delaware, according to estimates from the Swedish Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Delaware's Swedish link is visible in historic Delaware sites such as Old Swedes Church and the many places and landmarks in the state named for the Swedish settlers' queen, Christina.

Has anyone heard anymore about the 365th anniversary in Delaware? I am going (leaving from the midwest). I just requested the time off for this event. I am going to the two events and I really want to go to the museum buffet in her honor. But the buffet is only by invitation . Does anyone have any suggestions on how to recieve an invitation to attend? I would love to see the very Classy Crown Princess Victoria.

The Swedish-American Historical Museum is in Philadelphia too. Might want to see it too. Anyway, she should go to Swedesboro too. It was founded on the other side of the river in New Jersey so long ago. "Old Swedes' Church? That's in Swedesboro. Yes, a future queen will be near!

Don't forget your camera! I am sure it will be a good opportunity to snap a few pictures.

I wonder how many royal watchers and media will be there? I would enjoy checking it out too if it wasn't on the opposite coast.

I don't know how many royal watchers will be present. It appears as if she will be rushed through and an opportunity to see her might be limited, if at all. I was also aware that the buffet would not be a sit down dinner but quick as will. Also many of the sites that she would have seen were cancelled due to time. She is coming to honor her obligation (kind of like a thank you). I am still going. This is very unfortuate for me, becaue as things stand I might not be able to see her. I will try to visit sites in Philadelphia as Dennism suggested.

He looks fit enough, and mature enough to be a bodyguard.

Is Victoria a "fast mover" ? Out with D2 and in with D3 ?

One more picture from New York. The article is from Aftonbladet in Sweden.
Is the guy with his face turned this way Daniel ?

I´ve looked on the page of the rangers, and there´s currently no swedish player. Probably Daniel II said to Victoria, that he would love to see an US-ice-hockey-match.
Yes the guy in the Aftonbladet-picture is Daniel Westling.
The body language thing...do you mean that she´s very close to this man?...if I would be forced to have a bodyguard I would also try to make friends with him...such a man knows all intimate things of you.
I wonder if Victoria and Daniel go to a Halloween-party this night (but maybe Daniel is lying in the hotel room and is crying, because Victoria was so mean to him...and that´s the reason, why she´s walking alone through NYC :P )

Lena .. there are 3 NHL hockey teams in NY, along with the visiting team. The 3 home teams are: NY Rangers, NY Islanders and New Jersey Devils. Sorry.

I don't think its a wise idea to get close to a bodyguard, because then the bodyguard loses focus.

Because Victoria got the gumption to dump him, and not vice versa ?

Honestly I don´t know much about ice-hockey (I´m just watching all 4 years the finale at the olympic games)...and you´ve asked, if there are Swedes in the NY Rangers-team, and that´s why I´ve looked on their page (there is also mentioned, who made the goals yesterday). But it´s nice that you teach me a little bit...why not talking about other topics than Royalty...great chance to learn a lot.
Yes, in way you´re right, a person shouldn´t be to close to his/her bodyguard...but I would try to get along with/know the person, who protects me. Otherwise I would feel as if I would have a "stranger" most of the day around me.
The part with crying Daniel was just a joke...but of course it could be possible..I mean, that she dumps him. Why not? Maybe Victoria isn´t always just a victim?!
