Very pretty pictures of Victoria at the zoo. Love her dress and shoes. Nice to see that someone is wearing flats, they are so much more comfortable then those high heeled shoes.
Wish I could get my hands on about 5/6 yards of that fabric her dress is made out of........very nice indeed!

Victoria had chosen flats, because she was given a guided tour at the zoo with the 70 invited guests.
The Persian leopard Filou didn't want to show himself to the guests, but the Amur tiger Bojan was walking next to the pane where Victoria was positioned for photography.
- It's absolutely incredible, so fine, said Victoria astonished when the animal approached.
Zookeeper Julie E Poulsen got to tell Victoria on Amur tiger and about her work in the park.
- She was very interested. It was fun to meet her.
Many people were surprised to meet Victoria at the zoo.

What a great picture. I hate seeing these animals in zoos, yet I understand they must be cared for before they are all gone and this is the only way most of us will ever see these beautiful animals. What a beautiful animal the tiger is.......and so is Victoria, so pretty and looking like she is enjoying herself.

- I think it tries to hypnotize someone, said Victoria, when one of the tigers appeared to stare back at visitors.
- Which paws, gee. Quite amazing.
Victoria had before the opening ceremony received flowers from Ada Brynolf, 3, granddaughter of Lena M Lindén, CEO of Nordens Ark. Ada's mother, Anne Brynolf, was the one who gave flowers to the king when he opened the park 25 years ago.

Victoria met IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano and ambassador Nils Daag at the Royal Palace on 9th June. No photos at the court website. Amano was at an official visit in Sweden.

I'm really disappointed how the court informs about Victoria's and Daniel's work events. Often the event is put to the calendar on the same day or after the event has happened, and they don't put photos at all. Like now this meeting with the IAEA director and the visit to the Children's Hospital.

Another photo of Victoria at the Astrid Lindgren -hospital.

That's right! For example, we don't see pic from Lunch for Anders Wejryd and wife on 11th June together with the king and queen.
Thanks for the another pic from Solna!

Love her ensemble - and the color. She looks very nice. The shoes are perfect. (I don't usually notice shoes).

Victoria's dress is a superb blue!
How is Countess Marianne related to the Bernadottes?

Countess Marianne is related to the Bernadottes through her husband, Count Sigvard Bernadotte af Wisborg, who was previously a Prince of Sweden as the son of King Gustaf VI Adolf. He is the brother of the late Prince Bertil, who in turn is the uncle of King Carl Gustaf. So that would make Marianne the aunt-in-law of the King, and the great-aunt-in-law of the Crown Princess and her siblings, as well as the great-great-aunt-in-law of Estelle and Leonore, if my maths is correct.

HereditaryPrincess, Thank you for explaining Countess Marianne's relationship to the Bernadottes.
It is nice to see the term aunt-in-law being used!

SCA is honored to announce that Crown Princess Victoria is Godmother of the Team SCA crew and boat. The Crown Princess met with the all-female Team SCA in person recently at SCA’s headquarters in the Waterfront Building in Stockholm, discussing driving factors, challenges and possibilities for an all-female team in an around the world yacht race.
“We are delighted and honored that Crown Princess Victoria is the Godmother of our all-female Team SCA. Like the Crown Princess Victoria, who is a true ambassador for many good causes and an inspiration for many people around the world, we want our all-female team to motivate and inspire others to pursue their dreams and goals. We greatly appreciate the Crown Princess’ support,” says Jan Johansson, President and CEO, SCA. “As 80 percent of SCA’s consumers are women, and we want to enable women to perform in an arena that has normally been reserved for men, we chose an all-female team for our participation in the Volvo Ocean Race.”

“Meeting Crown Princess Victoria was an honor; she is such a role model and inspiration to all women and it is fantastic to have her as our Godmother during the race. We were all excited to meet her and it was great to give her an insight into our world and have the opportunity to meet with her in person,” says Dee Caffari, crew member Team SCA.
Before leaving the headquarters, the Crown Princess also gave the crew a coin with her portrait to bring the team luck on their journey and symbolically be with them around the world.
