Yes, but who gets the headlines? A stylish crown princess or the hard working one? I must say, I havenīt seen as many articles on Victoria as around her time in Australia for a long time! And maybe thatīs our bad bad world and this system should be changed. But so far itīs simply a fact, that you get headlines, and through that attention for organisations, when you look like a princess.

I do think Victoria looks like a princess, and to me wherever she goes she seem to make headlines. I think the reason why Mary got so much attention in Australia compared to Victoria, was not purely due to how she dressed but the whole concept of a cinderella story, the common girl getting the prince and she is visiting her "old" homeland. Mary is new "blood" for the press, the exact same thing happened to her sister in law Alexandra when she got married to Joachim.

Thank you, Grand Duchess, for the lovely pictures. I'm so impressed with Victoria's new sense of ('dare bare') style. You go girl!

She looks fantastic!

I must say, Iīm quite disappointed of Victoriaīs appearances. I canīt say, that Mary was as stunning as I know her from earlier appearances, but she has clearly beaten Victoria.
As Iīve said, I donīt think it was very wise to wear this top, she has worn in Australia 3 weeks ago and for the first meeting with Mary. But that was still ok. A bit inconsiderately...but well.
But today I hated all two combinations. Yes, I mean esp. COMBINATIONS. This black hat destroys the outfit, the same for the jacket to the boring black dress in the evening. And that Iīm not the biggest fan of glasses to galas is no big secret.
It seems "nagging Lena" is back...I guess you donīt have missed her. Well, Iīm in a bad and sad mood today, maybe I will see her appearance in Denmark with "other eyes" in a few days.

You can find the pictures here:

EDIT: Tonight she hasnīt worn a black dress...but black pants...again pants...her parents should have named her "Victor"

If we would ever make Victoria recyceling tread, we would need atleast two posts and tweny attachments to every outfit, how many times have we seen this jacket the past two years Mary, Laurentien and Victoria all looked dowdy\unflattering dressed in Parken I had truly expected something more for a fairy tale show.....

Interestingly she has (also) worn it for a meeting with a danish Royal. Then with queen Margrethe. I guess in the past 3 years, Victoria hasnīt met the danish Royals more than 3-5 times officially . But for these HCA-meetings she had to choose exactly 2 outfits, which she has worn before for meetings with the Danes

Oh my goodness! I don't want to be mean, but that 'can't-even-define-what-colour-that-is' jacket is hideous. Why would she want to wear it more than once? It's the wrong colour and cut for her (or anyone, for that matter). It appears as if she has worn flat shoes with her 'outfit' as well. Bad choice. Very bad! I agree, Lena, about wearing glasses to galas. She often wears contacts; why couldn't she have worn them for an event like this? From the previous photo (http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...entid=119435); that hat is terrible as well. *shakes head in sadness* “Why Victoria? Why did you revert back to your old ways?” I don't mind that shiny blue top, but she has worn it recently. I guess she will recycle her clothing to death, just like those white shoes (let us pray they are gone out of sight). I wish I was her fashion consultant. I can't guarantee her clothing would improve, but it sure would make me feel better.

This post has totally made me laugh Lena! Especially the last Edit comment. I am now trying to clean tea off the screen on my laptop and make my keyboard less sticky.

I don't care much for Victoria's metallic jacket either. The big flower pinned to the jacket -- wasn't that fad over like two seasons ago? I remember it being popular two seasons ago during Sex and the City's last season (here in North America). Or maybe as the show probably runs a bit behind in Sweden it is the current trend there now so Victoria is stylish and I just don't know it?

I too, am in agreement with Lena about the glasses. I don't have (as much) of a problem if she's wearing glasses with her suits during daytime engagements. I think sometimes it even works well for her in that she looks older and more professional. But for a gala when Margrethe and Benedikte are in their fur jackets and even 60 year old Benedikte is wearing a dress with a rather daring slit young, nubile 27 year old Victoria looks very dowdy and old in her glasses and ponytail. At least she could've done her hair in curls or an updo if she were to wear a ponytail.

(Is anyone for chipping in a few dollars so that we can send Lena to Sweden to either cut off the ponytail, steal her glasses and leave her a fresh supply of contacts, steal the white shoes (for Danielle!), and steal any and all items of clothing we have seen more than 5 times and/or loathe? :p)

You can count me in! Where should I make the payment? I can even supply Lena with a place to sleep and some food, she's very welcome - and it's near Stockholm city too! :)

Maybe Victoria has finally won the power over the remote control...no boring sport events anymore, but Sex and the city endlessly

Great idea, Alexandria. And I must say Iīve read of late private "donate for XY"-actions on the web (this seems to be a trend now ), which were more "stupid"
But of course I would want to have the TRF-girls with me (boys are invited too ) Danielle should be allowed to "kill" the white shoes alone!

Thank you for the offer, GrandDuchess. I can need the food...I need power to jump on the glasses

According to Expressen (and BILD) Victoria wonīt attend prince Charles wedding, but will inaugurate an new IKEA in Japan.
We knew this (as readers of GrandDuchess translated weekly schedule before), but of course Expressen had to make a story out of it.
http://www.expressen.se/index.jsp?a=263866

Now I wonder two things:
a) Do you think, Victoria would have attended, when she would have heard earlier of Charles wedding-planes? Or is she actually happy, that she has to do an official function? (ok, here you can just speculate...or try to call the court)

b) Do you think itīs ok, that a Swedish crown princess opens a new store of an as big group as IKEA (which is split into about 100 "subsidiaries", which have their registered offices abroad-Luxembourg, Netherlands and the Caribbean etc.- to avoid the Swedish taxes...and which produces mainly in Poland and China)? Can you think of any compareable action through an other Royal?

"(to the readers ...you donīt have to fear us"

Thatīs reassuring. Thanks. Some of us fear the others! :)

"or try to call the court)"

Now where did I put that number, Oh, no...

"(boys are invited too )"

Yippee.

"And I must say Iīve read of late private "donate for XY"-actions on the web (this seems to be a trend now ), which were more "stupid"

Yes, like SaveToby.

Thank you! I'm very honoured to be bestowed with that task, and my cheque is in the mail. Lets hope, when the time comes to carry out this action, I don't blow off my hand or die from the toxic fumes of 'evilness' (the shoes) mixing with strong sulfuric acid. Ah yes, I can see it now.

How will she be able to see? She'll just get another pair. Everyone hates the thicker "Daniel-esque" frames, but I think they look better on her.

Yes thatīs what Iīve meant. And Iīm still puzzled by this guy. I wonder if thereīs a law against such an action. IMO no one should react on him, then he would stop such nonsense.

Iīm sure there is also a little bit of money left...then we can go to her optician and can buy contacts. She can have, whatever she wants. Hard one, soft ones, heart shaped one...( http://www.lensesbymail.com/aimages/..._heart_big.jpg ) doesnīt matter

Since winter or early spring 2002. So they probably celebrated lately 3 years of relationship.

So Vicky is in the perfect age for marriage and has got the same boy friend for 3 years now. So I think a marriage would be fine :)
