:) You guys notice that ..... all those men belonging to the 'offical follow Victoria around' party listen through a tube. What do they listen to ? If their heart is pounding? Or to the tinkle of their change clanking around in their pocket?

That's her job, just like what her Dad does with his annual Royal Business Visits abroad ... and for that extent what every royal does .... peddle the products of their respective nations. (The country's Super Salesperson # 1).
You got it right, KC. To represent Sweden and to help bring trade to Sweden and to encourage Swedish businesses to do well. Only one facet but it is part of the "job".

Crown Princess Victoria said in an interview a while ago (I think it was in the beginning of last year) for a prestigious business magazine that she sees the marketing of Swedish companies abroad as one of her greatest tasks. She said in that interview that she wants to help both large and small companies, and she’s glad to help them out.

That same article also pointed out that the Crown Princess is much more free in her role towards the trade and industry/business world than The King. He has decided that he as Monarch and Head of State, will not take part in pure sales delegations for specific companies, like Prince Bertil used to do. The Crown Princess on the other hand has said that she could consider participating in sales delegations to other countries. Her role towards the trade and industry/business world started out seriously for the first time in 1999 when she was active in “Swedish Style” in Tokyo.

Quote from the interview (not the one mentioned above) with the Crown Princess on her Official Visit to the United States of America (which I've published in the interviews thread) from November 2003.

And for trade and industry?
- I want to help to bring forward the Swedish companies names and products in the international situations where I am. Simply to make advertisement for them. To do that in the best way, I need to deepen my knowledge about the companies, that is an important part of my education.

Hi

On a news program today in Australia, it was mentioned that Crown Princess Victoria was visiting Australia soon? Has this been confirmed?

Thanks

There was nothing on the Court´s site about it. Or I might have missed it. They talk a good deal about the plans for the National Day coming up on Sunday though. So it would be after that then. But I have not heard anything. But it would be great if she does indeed go. Get a chance for a few of you Aussies to see Victoria in person. :flower:

I don´t think that she will go to Austrialia before her summer-break. But maybe in autumn. I think she has never been there before (?)

Hi

On the program it was mentioned on, one of the people that appeared on the segment was the chef who cooked the dinner for Queen Margrethe, Mary and Frederik and the Australian Governor-General, as well as other dignitaries, at a pre wedding dinner at a restaurant near Fredensborg Palace.

thanks

Shane

I wonder what Crown Princess Victoria will be doing all of next week - she has no official engagements except attending Princess Catharina-Amalia's christening, which is not until Saturday... Hmm...

More "hiding at the gym" (as Se&Hör puts it) or at Daniel's apartment perhaps?

My guess is also that this will be a cuddle&snuggle-week for them...and it´s now time for Yennie and me to guess that they will go to a hot and sunny place with a lot of beaches (even though we know, that this won´t happen) and that we would then get pictures of them there :P

Well the chef knows what he is cooking, doesn't he? Or did I not get the point!

Slightly OT .... before sr.se shut down their link to webcams, I was in heaven checking out their Stockholm view. Now I've found a replacement webcam site of Stockholm. All is right with the world again !!!!! :) It just remains to thank the individual at this site who had the foresight to share the link. Who would like my thanks?

It has been come to Aftonbladet's knowledge (and confirmed) that superstar Lionel Richie (&#33 will perform for Crown Princess Victoria and the rest of the Royal House, friends and people at "The Victoria Day" at Borgholm on Öland on her coming birthday this summer.

Article from Aftonbladet:

Lionel Richie sjunger för Victoria på Öland

Victoria får en rejäl överraskning på sin födelsedag.
Världsstjärnan Lionel Richie kommer till kronprinsessans kalas på Öland.
- Det här är det största någonsin under alla Victoriadagar, menar Kay Wiestål.

Det är först i dag det ska bli officiellt, att Victoriadagens i särklass största artist är Lionel Richie.
- Ja, du har hört det. Jag kan bara bekräfta. Han är klar för Victorias födelsedag på Öland, säger Kay Wiestål, mannen bakom den populära Victoriadagen, som ihop med SVT:s producent Göran Winberg i över ett halvår arbetat på att få Richie till Öland.
- Vi har varit oerhört nära, tidigare, men med världsartister är det alltid något som kommer mellan.
- Men den här gången gick det hem och vi är minst sagt stolta, säger Wiestål som inte vill avslöja hur man lyckats få Richie.
Men enligt uppgift till Expressen ska sångaren ha tackat ja när han insåg att han skulle få uppträda för en hel kungafamilj och en kronprinsessa som fyller år.

Wells leder festen
Sedan tidigare är det klart att Robert Wells leder allt från scenen med sin specialorkester - Robert Wells and his Royal Rocking Symphony. Även Ronan Keating är klar. Vad Lionel Richie får i ersättning är hemligt, men han lär behöva varenda krona. Nyligen krävde hans exfru Diane Richie 2,4 miljoner kronor i månaden i underhåll - livet ut.

Wow, Lionel Richie. I´m really suprised...ususally there aren´t that known artists, who perform on the Victoria-day.
I hope he will come with his daughter Nicole and her friend Paris, so that Madeleine can socialize with them

Yes. There is a photo I would love to see. Nicole, Paris and Madeleine. Ronan Keating I have heard of. Isn´t he rather famous in Europe? I knew about Robert Wells though. That was reported a while ago. Anyway, I hope they have fun at the concert. So much fun. Truly dancing on the ceiling all night long perhaps!
