When the day comes and Victoria is the Queen, Carl Philip will be her back-up until her own children are grown. Carl Philip has completed at least the first part of his post highschool graduation and I am certain we will see much more of him in a official capacity. Victoria often accompanied the King and Queen earlier on in her training and now Carl Philip accompanies Victoria. He is there as the second in line after Victoria, not as her date in lieu of a husband.

Yesterday on Monday 28 August, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip arrived to North Bound in Shanghai, China onboard the East Indiaman ship Götheborg.

On their first day in the city, the Crown Princess and Prince paid a visit to the C.Y. Tung Maritime Museum.

On Tuesday morning they opened a Swedish-Chinese exhibition about memorable events in the relations between China and Sweden at the sea voyage museum at the Jiaotong university in Shanghai. In the evening the two royals will be guests at the Mayor's banquet in the Shanghai International Convention Center.

I love her outfits! Victoria looks very young, like when she was 10 and my mom always tells that good people are never getting older
Carl Philip looks great (very sexy at all ). But he will never get so much attention as Viky.

Finallyu some new pioctures of my favourite beau garcon! And he looks great I must say. Victoria has a young and fresh dress. Good to see that they are doing this together. It must be good to know for Victoria that she has a brother who is so supportive.
