I also think that she prefered not to participate so soon after her grand-aunt's death when she didn't had to.
Perhaps she also spent time with her bachelorette party guests that she Victoria left behind so suddenly. The party was to last for three days so they would normally have returned on Sunday or Monday.

I would guess that Madeleine is still in Sweden, but as the guest list and protocol for state visits are set well in advance the royal court doesn't want to make changes in the last minute. I don't see a reason for Madeleine to make two transatlantic flights in less than five days if it's not necessary.

From the speech of the king on Monday at the gala dinner
As you already know, Princess Lilian died yesterday, my uncle Prince Bertil's widow. In our mourning of her death I and and my family feel also a big gratitude. For all she gave us and Sweden during her long and rich life. She had been the first to agree with our welcoming you, Mr. President and Mrs. Gül.
H.M. Konungens tal vid det turkiska statsbesöket, måndagen den 11 mars 2013 - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

From the president's speech
Your Majesties,
Distinguished Guests,
I would like to take this opportunity to wish a long and healthy life to your granddaughter Princess Estelle who recently celebrated her first birthday.

The farewell ceremonies were done at the Arlanda Airport. Crown princess Victoria and prince Daniel said goodbye to the presidential couple.

Yes, it it she official Facebook page of H.R.H. princess Madeleine of Sweden. She posts there photos and articles of her work at the World Childhood Foundation and about her life.
https://www.facebook.com/PrincessMadeleineOfSweden/info

I read that it was said at the swedish radio, that the president had wanted that the flags, also the turkish ones, were at half-mast when they arrived to the Royal Palace, as of respect towards princess Lilian and the royal family. It was planned that the flags would have put up before the arrival ceremony started.

From the president's website, a story about the whole visit.

I particularly noted the picture Image Upper.com - Free Image Hosting - View Image, where Victoria seems a bit sceptical about what the Turkish President says, Daniel keeps smiling.
Some macho attitude or words could be expected from him, in my view.
I remember at the time of his election there were discussions at to whether he is a moderate or hard muslim.
There must be a highly political agenda behind these visits; they also went to the Netherlands, and Denmark (?) I think. Admission into the EU, I guess...

That man isn't the president of Turkey, it is the Minister for Education Jan Björklund. He has a scarf, the president hasn't. Minister Björklund attend at the farewell ceremony. Minister Björklund is on the right in this photo.

One more photo of Victoria and Daniel at the airport, with the minister for Foreign Affairs, Carl Bildt.
