Great photos. Thanks! While I am not overly fond of these shoes, they are a thousand times better than the other ones (sorry, I just had to bring it up :)). I think we are starting to see "Aussie Victoria" reappear in these photos. Thank goodness! It certainly is a vast improvement from the HCA events. The coat suits her, I think, and the pony tail, although still there, looks a little tidier and less noticeable.

Princess Victoria is a beautiful girl but I really don't like her wearing glasses . I think that it really doesn't suit her, it makes her appear more old . I wonder why she never wears contact lens ??! Has she an allergy or something like that ?

More photos from Japan. Victoria visits a Swedish-made toy shop at the expo. Look at that beautiful face in the 2nd photo. She is "psyched" and "ready to rumble" as we say in the American vernacular. Then she must have scored. Måååååål! She screams out!

Hm, since she wears her glasses more, I wear mine less Well, I don´t need them really. And I wonder, how much Victoria needs them. She has gotten them very late (at 11 or 12), so I wonder if her visual defect is really so strong, that she needs permanently glasses. I know, that some children and teenagers develop a visual defect later in their growing years (for me it was reversed...I got glasses at 4 and since then my visus has improved permanently) but I guess this isn´t the norm.
I think member Alva, who I haven´t seen for a while, is an optician...maybe she could say more.

Thank you for the pictures. It seems now the long (boring?) hours with Daniel in the ice hockey stadiums make sense

I remember that Victoria didn't wear glasses even when she was "at work" a few years ago . It's a very recent thing . So it's very strange . Maybe she only wants to look more stylish or serious or something like that ...

She looks great except for that darn ponytail... Seriously, I think she would've looked sooo much nicer if she had her hair done like this...
