Some things I´ve read from the finnish papers Victoria and Daniel said/made during Monday:
At the flight to Turku:
- they used a regular flight, sat in the front with their bodyguards. They were reading swedish newspapers and especially Victoria looked the view from the window. Daniel greeted other passengers.
During the day:
- Social reporter Rita Tainola told to Daniel, that she had followed Victoria´s life from her birth until know. Daniel was surprised: Really!?
Victoria has met Rita Tainola many times (they have trained together at the hotel gyms during Victoria´s trips) and she was glad to see her.
At the lunch:
- Victoria and Daniel discussed with the member of Parliament, Kike Elomaa, about sport and how people need to exercise. Mrs. Elomaa (who herself is a former Miss Olympia in bodybulding) told that Daniel told her how much weight he lifts at the bench press, and it is very impressive. Mrs. Elomaa didn´t want to reveal it. She said also that Daniel was so easy to talk with, she didn´t have any difficulties to talk with him by speaking her "school-swedish", Mrs. Elomaa is 56 years old.
At the dinner:
- Daniel sat beside Johanna Randell, the wife of the mayor of Turku. They spoke about things the ordinary people face and struggle with in their life.
- Daniel said to the minister of Defence, Stefan Wallin, that he will take some paternity leave when their child is born.

On Monday evening before the dinner, Victoria and Daniel got a tour at the Turku Castle. They were e.g. presented a painting of Albert Edelfelt: "Duke Karl Insulting the Corpse of Klaus Fleming"

I really like this one - it shows how open Victoria is to the people she meets.

They look so happy, I really enjoy seeing them together :-)
Victoria was always happy to be among people,especially children!She never appears snobbish like other royals who only meet up with commoners for PR-while she is truly caring and listening to the people,to me she is a real "peoples princess" and that´s why I love her so much

From a blog of the youth section of the Main Library of Turku, about Victoria´s and Daniel´s visit:
As soon as the library was opened security men and police officers came to inspect the area. Shortly before the arrival of Victoria and Daniel the children and youth departments were closed to the public and the police emptied the region. Members of the media came pouring in trying to find the best camera angles.
Already half eleven we waited in line almost with bated breath, the labels and our hair straightened. Finally the waiting ended, the royal guests came.
My heart left a beat between, at least one.
Even from a far we saw that Victoria was just as brilliant as the pictures have shown. With a warm smile on her face, she greeted people and received flowers and walked to our children and youth department. The couple stopped for a moment to admire the exhibition we had made in their honor, and continued to the Book theater to listen to a swedish fairy tale. They asked from the children for their favorite books, and Daniel revealed his own favorite had been Pippi Longstocking. Media representatives fought for the best places to get photos, it was a little comical.
Victoria and Daniel continued to meet for young people in Stoori. There, Victoria sat on the stairs as anyone - the same place where we often sit in - and talked casually with young people. When they left Victoria praised the magnificent library, and a couple went to the information department.
We hope that Victoria and Daniel got a good picture of the price of our city. The reason for such a visit is sufficient for the reorganization of the fact that for once, everyone seemed to have a genuinely happy smile on their faces.

Victoria's smile in the first picture is positively impish. She strikes me as a person with one heck of a sense of humor .
