Victorias skakiga besök på Island

Grattis, Victoria! Kronprinsessan lyckades i går sätta nytt prinsessrekord i att skaka hand. Under statsbesöket på Island hälsade hon på 500 personer på mindre än 40 minuter.

Victoria kom till Island sent i söndags kväll för veckans officiella statsbesök. Med sig har storsessan mamma Silvia och pappa kungen. Men som vanligt stal Victoria föreställningen. Sedan fick också kungen och Silvia se dottern slå nytt svenskt prinsessrekord – i handskakning. När det i går eftermiddag var dags att besöka Nordens hus på Island passade Victoria på att genomföra sitt lyckade rekordförsök.

Seg efter 30 minuter
Hon och föräldrarna var där för att träffa svenska kolonin – 400 vuxna och 100 barn. Under 40 minuter stod hon – outtröttligt och ständigt leende – och hälsade på svensk efter svensk. Efter cirka en halvtimme började hon se seg ut, men skärpte till sig och lyckades genomföra alla 500 handskakningar och ett antal kramar.

Jan Davidsson, kläddesigner på Island, var den förste att få skaka Victorias hand.
– Stort. Det var första gången jag hälsade på de svenska kungligheterna. Men att de orkar? Jag skulle få tennisarmbåge efter bara 100 personer.

What was this visit for? What is the relationship between them?

Just look at these two of Princess Victoria from today--without the hat her outfit looks so much younger--although overall she really does dress too dowdy for such an attractive young lady with such a winning smile.

I think hats are lovely even for young women. We wear them a lot here in Palm Beach so to me it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Victoria looks great in hats & she has a number of very nice ones but this particular hat however, I’m not a fan of.



Maybe something like this would have been better on her (in a diff color).

I don't have access to Brainpix either, but I'm sure somebody does and could post them for us... =)

I just saw the one picture of Victoria and Silvia on the main Royals page on Brainpix.

Nice hat. A different color. Not a fan of the back part though. Reminds me of Mette-Marit´s hat at the christening.

The ladies look lovely! and fun that victoria is wearing a more prominent tiara, i just think (from the little i´ve seen) that victoria could have done something more with her hair, but atleast it is not a pony tail...
Is that purple dress the one that she wore at haakons & m-m wedding?
