At Facebook of the Royal Armoury
Today's date: August 3-5, 1908, the German emperor couple was visiting Stockholm. During the visit, Queen Victoria was named Honorary Colonel and Head of the "Das Fusilier Regiment Königin Viktoria von Schweden Pommersiches nr 34, Stettin" by her cousin, Emperor Wilhelm II. She wore the uniform the following year when she inspected the regiment in Stettin.
The uniform is at the new permanent exhibition at the Royal Armoury.

It is interesting that Victoria was not called by her her first name of Sophie. Thus she would have been Queen Sophie or Sofia of Sweden.

Apparently, during her pre-marriage life, she was already called Princess Viktoria of Baden and after her marriage to the then Crown Prince Gustaf of Sweden and Norway, she used a variant spelling of Viktoria which is 'Victoria.'

It is to note too that her predecessor/mother-in-law's name is Queen Sophia born Princess of Nassau half-sister of Adolphe, Grand Duke of Luxembourg (the origin of today's Luxembourg Grand Ducal Family) and they were not very friendly with each other.

It is unfortunate that Queen Sophia and Crown Princess Viktoria did not get along two well. One would think that a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law would get along so sweetly.

Queen Sophia had a liberal mindset and although very religious favoured a more evangelical approach to her faith which got her a lot of criticism from the very conservative Church of Sweden. Her political and religious views also got her into conflict with her husband King Oscar II on several occasions although he in general valued and respected her view on political matters. Politically she was oriented towards Britain and had hoped that her son Gustav V would chose a British bride. She was also anti-Prussian. Not only because her brother lost Nassau to the Hohenzollerns, but also because she objected to the militarism of the Prussian state and the way the Empire had been created. In spite, or maybe because, of this she was a friend of Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Victoria.
Queen Victoria was very conservative, high church and militaristic which immediately set her against her mother-in-law. Added to that she showed on many occasions that to her Germany came before the Double monarchy. Her strict personality and her frequent trips abroad further added to the animosity between her and her parents-in-law. Although highly conservative she wasn't seen as being serious about either her position as a Swedish Crown Princess or about her marriage.
Funnily enough both women spent a lot of time abroad for health reasons, but only Victoria faced criticism for it.
