Thank you for the pics !
I really like Crown Princess Victoria . I think she is a wonderful future Queen, she seems so nice and reachable and down-to-earth . The only thing wrong, to me, with her are her clothes !! Why does she always wear outfits that make her look like she were 60 !!?

I grumbled too when I saw the purple jacket -- it looks like it is crushed velvet to me. I hope it isn't -- as crushed velvet was out in the '90s and should never make a fashion comeback in my opinon.

Such outfits really do Victoria a great disservice as she as proven (in Australia for example) that she can be quite stylish. But outfits like this purple one make you want to scream in frustration.

I think we should make a list of all the items we do not like of Victoria's or outfits or items she has worn too often and send a petition as Lena suggests for these items to be banned from her closet!

The Victoria Trail: between Sweden and Finland

Crown Princess Victoria inaugurated the Victoria Trail

It was with great verve that Crown Princess Victoria inaugurated the Victoria Trail. Accompanied by applauds, the Crown Princess cut the ribbon at Treriksröset – then she drove herself back to Kilpisjärvi.

It started as it usually does, with delays. The kids that had travelled from the Kuttainen School patiently had to wait, wait and wait. The same conditions went for the large group of media; where of most of them were from Norway and Finland, who eagerly stood ready with their telephoto lenses.

At last the Crown Princess arrived, and she was warmly received with waving flags and cheering. The Crown Princess had earlier flown to Tromsö, from where she had been escorted by Norwegian police, the Chairman of the City Council, Thore Klippmark, and Jan Unga, from the municipality’s development division.
- It’s fantastic how she takes this on with such joy, said Jan Unga.
- This attention gives a kick to the Arctic Trail and the whole scooter tourism.

And it was the means of transportation, the scooter, and the Crown Princess of course, that were in the focus. The object of the inauguration was the joint Nordic scooter trail – the Victoria Trail, a trail that stretches from Muonio to Treriksröset and which total length is 220 kilometres. The trail runs on both Swedish and Finnish sides of Muonio-Könkämä river valley and is a part of Arctic Trail, a network of trails that stretches though out the north parts of the countries.

The inauguration ritual took place at Treriksröset. Curious people had transported themselves there, by skies or scooter, to get a glimpse of the heir to the throne. And despite a rusty pair of scissors, the Crown Princess managed to cut the blue-yellow and blue-white (the flag colours of Sweden and Finland) ribbon.
- It’s a great joy and honour to open the Victoria Trail in this way. It’s fantastic to be here, said the Crown Princess, and pointed out that “the pair of scissors has to be as old as the mountain”.

The County Governor of Norrbotten, Per-Ola Ericsson, dressed in a scooter suit/overall like everyone else, expressed great joy of the fact that the Victoria Trail could finally be inaugurated.
- It’s a fantastic day for us in the north. We are one people, but divided in three countries.

After mingling and jojk (sami/lapp type of singing), it was time to leave the mountain world and return to Kilpisjärvi. But this time the Crown Princess didn’t settle with riding behind Härje Fors from the National Board of Forestry. No, she placed herself behind the handlebar and took the lead in a furious pace.

The whole celebrations didn’t last more than a few hours, but all involved parties seemed nothing but satisfied and happy when the royal circus was over.

If Victoria provides rebuttal, what then?

Thank you very much for making such an effort (posting the many pics + the translated article), GrandDuchess :)

Hm, the pink velvet jacket on Wednesday, the pinstriped suit on Thursday, I would say it´s today then time for one of her black or beige pantsuits
Do you think this I-am-the-girl-next-door-I-recycle-my-clothes is extra "tailored" for her work in Sweden (it´s no secret, that the Swedes have to pay the clothes she wears...and not the foreign countries, she visits) or is it just the different weather (???)

BTW I agree so much Alexandria. Crushed velvet is indeed so very 90ties...and even then it wasn´t the first choice of ppl, who were known as "fashion icons". It´s simply not stylish. There are a few things, you can always wear (e.g. a little black dress a la Audrey Hepburn) but crushed velvet surely doesn´t belong to these things.

Victoria in bomb-scare

http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=274810

Victoria was heading for the airport in Tromsø, Norway when a bomb threath was called in at 14.35 saying a bomb would go of at 15.00, the airport was evacuated. Victoria and her company had to wait in building away from the airport.

ETW:We never considered traveling another way, there is not really many options here. We dont know if the threath was directed at us (Dear ETW you are not a known person in Norway, atleast not well enough to get a bomb treath your way)

The police in Tromsø did not think that it was directed at Victoria, the airport opened again at 18.15 and thet could depart at 18.45

******

They showed Victoria on the TV2 news yesterday, the reporter sounded like a kid in a candy store. Victoria was soooooo nice and charming, she was soooooo brave to take a ride at the snowscooter....

Oh, that is so scary. Stupid people who make threats like that. Ugh! I'm glad that there was no bomb, and everyone was okay. Oh yes. Brave Victoria. I wouldn't be able to go on a snow scooter, but I am scared of everything. :p What is Victoria holding in the photo? I can't quite tell what it is. Thank you for the information and photo, Larzen.

Well, to ride a snow scooter at your location in Australia could be a little problem. Victoria is used to snow, so it´s no surprise, that she is soooooo brave :p

Yes, but we do have snow here ... just not a lot of it. It will be the snow season soon. Yay! I suppose I could always ride a snow scooter up and down my street (well, down at least), dodge some cars, and then see how brave I am. Thanks GrandDuchess for the photos. Is it my eyes, or did she wear a shirt like that only recently? I really love her collection of earrings. Very pretty!

Crown Princess Victoria "helps" Gothenburg


Gold medal winners Team Surprise (Sweden) from this weekend

An article in Aftonbladet today says that Crown Princess Victoria is trying to help Gothenburg to win the bid for the World Synchronized Skating Championships for 2008 (which Gothenburg and The Swedish Figure Skating Association are bidding for).

Last Thursday, Victoria met the President of The International Skating Union, Ottavio Cinquanta, at a luncheon, and for the dessert they had a chance to chat to each other.
- Of course she didn't say anything, but I could see in her eyes what she thinks, Cinquanta said to Aftonbladet's sports section.

- I know that the Crown Princess and the Royal Family likes sports very much and I've had the honour of meeting the Swedish King in connection to the Olympic Games, said Cinquanta.

What did you and the Princess talk about?
- We discussed sports from a global perspective. It would have been rude of me to talk only about figure skating

Did the Crown Princess try to influence you to choose Gothenburg as the arranging nation for 2008?
- Considering her position, she didn't ask anything officially of course, but I understood what she thought.

Could it have an influence on you, for the decision?
- I'm not alone in deciding this. We are 11 people who makes the decision in June. But Sweden is a very important winter sports country and the organisation around this championship have performed the best World Synchronized Skating Championships ever.
