Three representants of the media were invited to the lunch, among the Erika Bjerström from SVT. She said that Victoria and Daniel looked radiantly happy as new parents do, and Daniel told that he (or they) has a lack of sleep...

Well, I truely like Victoria - she´s a great person and represantative of her country but do you really call it "work" shaking a couple of hands and then sit down to listen to a speach and then eat?! I guess any woman could manage this a week after giving birth

Given the way everyone's been playing up the fact that they're related, you could call it basically a family lunch. It's a bit of a stretch to call that work.

Victoria is admirable because she and Daniel have a strong sense of duty. Yes, it´s not so hard to spend about two hours at a lunch, but she could very well have stayed home with her little Estelle, many crown princesses and princesses have had a maternity leave at least for three months.

Thanks for the laterst pictures, MagMil.
While in Vasa Museum with Their Majesties, Prince Charles and Camilla closely examined the remnants of Swedish warship Vasa.
Vasa sunk in 1628 on her maiden voyage and was recovered after 333 years in the waters of Stockholm's Strom.

Charles and Camilla met Estelle yesterday after the lunch. Charles told to Aftonbladet later: Of course we met her. It was fantastic, very nice.

Victoria´s speedy recovery from giving birth was admired. Royal expert Roger Lundgren said: I was actually shocked when I saw the pictures. Victoria has lost all the pregnancy pounds in just a few weeks. But she walks in the Haga Park every day with Estelle. Plus she's married to a personal trainer,
The director of the press department, Bertil Ternert said that Victoria wanted to be attend the lunch because it was a suitable event. But Victoria has also been in the office and worked on several other occasions after that she became a mother.
Currently, Victoria has no more missions planned. But according to the court, her calendar is slowly filled in.
- The Crown Princess will see what is possible to do. But right now Estelle is the first priority for Victoria, said Bertil Ternert.

Thanks for the information.
Quite a historical occasion, actually; future King of the UK was probably one of the first foreign royals to meet future Queen of Sweden.

I wonder if Prince Charles might be considered as a godparent for Estelle? Or maybe William?

That's not a model.That's the original Vasa which was discovered in Stockholm's harbour and lifted from the bottom, brought into a dock which was covered and deflooded. There the ship was restored. The building is now the Vasa museum, so they walked on and into the original ship.

Prince Charles as a godfather is possible, but not very probable.
British Royals aren't generally asked to become godparents to foreign royals; of Prince Charles' twenty eight godchildren only one - Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece - is a member of (former) foreign royal family. Prince William is highly unlikely to be a godfather to Victoria's daughter; there is virtually no connection between him and his European counterparts.

However close British and Swedish Royal Families may be, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel will chose godparents among their friends. Of foreign royals, the Scandinavian and Benelux royals are much likelier to feature in the godparents list, than the British ones.

The final stop of this visit was the Salta mill in Jarna.
While there, Prince Charles and Camilla, accompanied by Queen Silvia, tasted some of the production, including sourdough and bread.

- Picture One
- Picture Two

Next stop - visit to Denmark.
