Ålandtalk

Did you read the Ålandstidningen-bloggpost from 12.32? Jenny Alexandersson from Svensk Damtidning talks:

Ålandstidningen följer kronprinsessan Victorias dag - Ålandstidningen

Klockan 12:32 Jenny Alexandersson från Svensk Damtidning berättar: Victoria bor officiellt ensam i Sjöflygeln, två rum o kök, på Drottningholms slott. Men Daniel Westling är där mest hela tiden. Han är helt accepterad av kungen o drottningen.

From finnish magazines:
Iltalehti/Säteilevä Victoria ihastuttaa Ahvenanmaalla/Radiant Victoria charms in Åland
Iltalehti tells, that there was a funny moment at a high school, when the a girl and a boy, who came to give gifts to Victoria, were absolutely stunned. The boy hugged the crown princess spontaneously and gave her a kiss on the cheek. Victoria smiled to this surprising moment of tenderness. She said: This is a lovely school and I´m sure that it is very nice to have looong lessons here. I´m so glad that I can now visit Åland. I have wanted to come here for a long time.

I always knew CP Victoria is a great person with warm heart. I can imagine the situation and her reaction to boy's hug.

LadyFinn, thanks for the story.

Is it just me or did she cut her hair. The ponytail looks shorter. Anyway I liked it with the side swept bangs.

Thanks for sharing that anecdote LadyFinn!

Victoria looks lovely IMO, not so much by the clothes but she simply seems to glow, like here.

Here´s the young man, who hugged Victoria:
Iltalehti
This young man, August, laughed that he is now treated like a hero. Not every young man can hug a real princess.

The visit of the crown princess was a real success. She was so nice, spoke so kindly with those little children, who gave her flowers (and there were a lot of children giving flowers). I saw it on the finnish news.

Information of Victoria´s visit, in swedish and english:
