Hi, this is my first time posting here. Well, just wanted to share a piece of news about Crown Princess Victoria. I have a Swedish friend who lives in Australia and who met her when she was in Australia in March 2005. Apparently, the Crown Princess was gracious enough to thank her for all the trouble my friend went through to have all the Swedish children attend one of the functions. Not only is she gorgeous, but she also has a warm heart.

Hi Yennie, Gita & Cerasma,

Thanks for the warm welcome. I hope I will have more to post, but I am probably the least likely to meet any member of the Swedish royal family as I live in China! Haha! In any case, I am a fan and even though I don't post often, I drop by and read the forums almost every day. Thanks to all for the great stuff here. Cheers!

CP Frederik and CP Victoria in Luleå yesterday. After lunch in Luleå they boarded the icebreaker Oden, which will go to Stockholm and will arrive on Wednesday. (http://www.kuriren.nu/ )

The last one is funny. Do you know what she was doing?

The weirdest thing happend and I had to share. I went out to dinner with some of my family the other week and the most interesting thing happend. I looked over at another table and there was a women I would have sworn to be the CP Victoria. She looked so much like her she should aply to be a body double for Victoria if she needs to get away from the photographers.

Victoria is going to Turkey June 13-15!

Kronprinsessan Victoria ska sälja Sverige i Turkiet.
Hon följer med näringsminister Thomas Östros dit 13-15 juni för att bland annat främja svenskt näringsliv, meddelar näringsdepartementet
Turkiet försöker komma med i EU, något som väckt opposition i andra EU-länder än Sverige. Misstron mot Turkiet bidrog till att befolkningarna i Frankrike och Nederländerna nyligen röstade nej till EU-fördraget.
Syftet med Victorias och Östros besök i Istanbul och Ankara är också att diskutera EU-processen.

Dessutom avses besöket fördjupa relationerna mellan Sverige och Turkiet. Östros träffar andre premiärminister Recep Tayyip Erdogan och ekonomiminister Ali Babacan, som är Turkiets chefsförhandlare med EU.
Turkiet är en växande marknad för svenska företag. Där finns nu 70 svenska företag representerade, heter det i ett pressmeddelande från departementet, som inte sprider vidare ljus över vilken roll Victoria ska spela

Thank you Yennie for this information. Great, that she makes one more journey in the first half of the year. One could almost mean, she wants to get as many trips as possible done before the "engagement year". Well, maybe Victoria has just chosen this trip in the wise foresight, that Sweden would have a miserable june with a lot of rain and cold temperatures (I´ve even heard the chances for strawberries to midsummer are very low, says Lena biting in red sweet Austrian non-imported strawberries :p ).
Does Victoria really need to discuss, if Turkey should join the EU or not. IMO here the "weaknesses" of the Royal system show. On the one hand it´s required, that they should have no political opinion (which is of course impossible), on the other hand they are trained in politics...

This isn´t really "news" (it was probably written a few years ago) but I hadn´t read it before, and since its in english and easy for everyone to read, I tought it was worth posting anyway!

She says many nice things:

If you know something about a person, you in your mind create a picture of that person. Of course, people shouldn't do that, but they do. .

Usually, I get this comment: 'You're not as stiff as I thought you would be. ' I go, 'Thanks,'.

Before I started doing official duties I never understood why my parents were so tired when they came home at night."

Expressen today reports that the Swedish Football Association is planning on letting Crown Princess Victoria take care of the award giving of the newly established Crown Princess Victoria Trophy from this year on, the trophy is the prize for the winner of Damallsvenskan (the premier football league for women in Sweden) every year. Before the new Crown Princess Victoria Trophy was established earlier this year, it has been the President of the Swedish Football Association that has taken care of the award giving for the national league.

Representatives from the association said to Expressen that Victoria likes the idea, and that they have invited her to do it. But however, Victoria’s fall schedule is not set yet – so therefore it’s not certain if she will be able to do it this year, if not the new tradition will start next year instead.

The Crown Princess Victoria Trophy is made by Klara Schmidt who finished Konstfack (prestigious art school) this year, and her idea about the trophy has been that it should be lighter than normal heavy ones - and it is in she shape of a globe of silver that rotates around its own shoulder. The winning teams get their names inscribed in it before it continues to circle if another team should win next, and all winning teams get a mini version of it to keep.

Last night, 18 August 2005, a fantastic looking Crown Princess Victoria christened the boat of the Ericson Racing Team that will be used in the Volvo Ocean Race. The christening took place at the the Gothenburg Opera in Gothenburg. She looked so fabulous! A real jawdropper I must say. :)

Pictures 1-7 are from Fotomarktplatz, picture 8 is from Aftonbladet and picture 9 is from Expressen.
