On the question of Victoria speaking French

Victoria de Sude: "La monarchie n'est pas rtrograde" - L'EXPRESS

For those of you who speak or read french, here is an interview of Victoria and Daniel in French magazine L'Express. The interview took place in the palace in Stockholm just a few days before they started their trip.
The original interview must have been in Swedish or in English because there is a question where they ask her if she speaks french. Specifically they say: "Bernadotte never learned swedish, Do you speak French" to which she answers that English is her 2nd language, then she learned German esp with her mom and then after high school she attended a university in France to learn the french language. She also took an internship to improve her french but she concludes: " because of lack of practice my French is rusty now"

The other interview questions are on Sweden, the role of monarchy, her recent marriage etc.

Another article in Le Point mentions the princess understands french well, and speaks a little "un peu".

So maybe mother language Swedish, English, German, French and Portuguese.
In Herman Lindqvist's book (published last year) Victoria says that the only Portuguese she knows are the Brazilian children's songs her mother sang to her, "and you can't get very far with that."

At the interview Daniel tells about his relationship with the Royal Family:
It's been nine years since I was introduced to the parents of Victoria and I had time to get used to the specifics of royal status. Then it was most surprising for me that Victoria's family in many ways resembled mine. I quickly realized that it was a friendly family, relaxed with a lot of laughing, just like my parents. The most impressive was to see how the king and queen were devoted to Sweden and Swedes, always willing to put their reputation at the service of persons or organizations whose work deserves to be helped.

Carla and Victoria seemed to have good time together. I wonder if they have met before?

Are there any videos of their meeting with Sarkozy?

Is French President Nicolas Sarkozy trying to hide his height once again | Mail Online

Quote:
Bending down to politely kiss his royal visitor's hand, Nicolas Sarkozy was trying to be the perfect gentleman.
But the French President's gesture was more than just a greeting, it made sure he kept Princess Victoria of Sweden at arm's length as the pair met in Paris today.
By doing so the President, who is famously sensitive about his height, assured his visitor did not share the top step of the entrance to the Elysee Palace in the French capital.

Well it doesn't seem as if Victoria is that much taller that the president. Carla is taller.

She might actually be shorter than him out of her heels. Probably a slow news day for Daily Mail reporters..

According to IMDB Sarkozy is 1.69, Carla 1,75, Victoria 1,72 and Daniel is 1,82. Somehow i dont think those figures are correct if one looks at the photos were Sarkozy greets Daniel

I´ve read from somewhere that president Sarkozy has special made shoes that give him a couple of centimeters extra height...

Prince Daniel

You know, I think the Prince is trying to be comfortable in his new role but is a little too serious looking. Princess Victoria is so vivacious, such an extrovert. Of course she was raised in the life of royalty and Daniel was not. I think it is going to take quite some time for him to be open and relaxed. I kind of feel sorry for him but at the same time he knew what he was getting into, I would think. I know he wants to make a good impression but he really needs to smile more and loosen up.
