I have to agree with Lena's comments above.
If you look a little more than skin deep at Crown Princess Victoria these days, then the same thing wonderful Dorothy Parker said about Los Angeles is true about her as well:
"There's no THERE there."
I'm always stunned when people regard her as 'The serious, hard working one'. Her being 'serious' and 'commited' is pure image, largely based on the superficial fact that she doesn't dress like a fashion plate.
But as Lena said, some Royal fashion plates show a good deal more involvement with worthy causes that they are identified with than the Crown Princess.
The sad thing is that she's currently not identified with anything in Sweden - there's no charity, not a single issue, no organisation of any kind she would support by putting her Royal title and prestige to good use.
As a matter of fact, all she has done recently is taking some ten-day course at university and constantly handing out prizes given by organisations she's sometimes connected to as a patron, sometimes not - you wouldn't know the difference. She has no profile as of now, and claiming that the mere regal existence under the title of Crown Princess is already enough would be very short-sighted:
Considering the longevity of the Bernadottes, another thirty years of being Crown Princess may very well lie ahead of her, so it's high time to put some time and effort into carving out a niche for herself.
And yes, while she's at it she could put some more time and effort into her appearance as well. A woman who is able to look as great as she did for the second Nobel gala this year should never attend a public function looking as dowdy as here. In the end, the right regal imagery does help Royals to achieve something beyond the titles they're born with or they've married in taking on worthwhile issues and supporting them... provided that they take them on.
Currently, she's not using any of the opportunities and the potential which her privileged status provides.

Crown Princess Victoria handed over the Tobias prize to Katarina Le Blanc, at the Royal Academy of Sciences in Stockholm Wednesday. Le Blanc receives the prize, around one million Euros, for her stem cell research. Victoria is the patron the the Tobias Foundation. Established in 1992, purpose of The Tobias Foundation is “to support the establishment of a Swedish bone marrow/stem cell registry and to support research in illnesses that can be treated with bone marrow/stem cell transplantation”

I agree with you. A commoner struggles to make his fortune whereas V has her fortune laid ahead and she looks, acts, etc. at least indifferently...

I don´t follow Victoria too much, but I have always had a positive impression of her. I don´t think you can compare her to Mary, or any of the other crown princesses because they will all be consorts of the regent, whereas Victoria will become regent. So, to some extent she cannot become as involved in things as Mary or other crown princesses because her role will change vastly when she becomes regent.
