Does anyone know if the King was in France today? I was watching the Nadal v Hewitt tennis match and they always pick out famous people during the changeovers and as the camera panned round there was someone who looked very much like the King, there was someone a few rows behind him with a very big Spanish flag.

Today Saturday, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip were on the west coast, in Gothenburg, to attend the finish of the Volvo Ocean Race.

Victoria, who is godmother of Team Ericsson's yacht, she was also the one who christened it, was onboard for the last few hours of the race, going to the port of Gothenburg were tens of thousands of people met up.

She commented to BYM News:
"I am extremely happy and proud to have crossed the finish line with a team that has sailed around the world. I realized when I sailed with the team during the Rio de Janeiro in-port race, how difficult and technical racing at this level is. I find it incredible that they can sail at such a competitive level offshore as well. I am very proud of my team and to have been involved with the project since the very beginning."

http://www.bymnews.com/new/content/view/30871/48/

Prince Carl Philip, the protector of the race, awarded the prizes at the prize giving ceremony. Let's hope for more pictures of that tomorrow!


Pictures 1-2 are by Paul Vreeker/Reuters via Yahoo News, 2-3 are by Peter Gustafsson for BYM News.

oh nice to see some new photos of the siblings. Sweden has fantastic weather at the moment so sailing is a perfect thing to do :)

I dont like Victorias glasses at all... they look weird on her. The ones she wore in Brazil was much better! And Carl Philip; what can I say?! Handsome as usual

I agree that Victoria's sunglasses look a little odd on her. The shape of the glasses don't match the shape of her face. Now that Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest ads are everywhere here in Cali, everytime I see Carl Philip and Orlando Bloom I'm reminded of the other. Not complaining, both are so handsome!

Thanks for the beautiful photos, GrandDuchess!

Thank you so much, GrandDuchess, for the beautiful pictures from Gothenburg. It is very nice to see the siblings doing some official things together.
I do agree with all of you: Carl Philip really looks very sweet and handsome.
Hope to see more pictures from yesterday and today.

wow

Victoria is such a great girl! You can just tell from the pictures that she doesn't consider it a "duty" to be there, shes having a good time! And look at her was with children! The little girl cries and she tries to console her!! I think some day she will make a loving and attentive mother!!!:p

A little earlier today, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip were the first people to go through the 1,6 km long, multi billion SEK new Göta Tunnel in Gothenburg via car. It was done with a vintage car cortège throgh the tunnel, and it was a part of the Volvo Ocean Race fesitivities this weekend. Victoria went in a Jacob, and open Volvo from 1927, and Carl Philip in a a Volvo truck from 1928, driven by the Volvo CEO.

hmm

doesn't it seem like CP and CPV are doing a lot of duties lately that Madeleine is missing out on? It seems too bad that she can't be there for any of these activities.:(

5th place I think. Obviously not as good as they wanted, but they're already making new plans for the next Volvo Ocean Race starting in 2008. I hope Crown Princess Victoria will be godmother of the Ericsson boat then as well.

Thanks Yennie, great pictures, is that Jonas in the boat with the King and Carl Philip or is it a bodyguard?
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...0&d=1152870377

The article also says that Emma has travelled to Soliden, but stayed on land, wonder if we will see her today, it would be strange is we see Emma and not Daniel:o

Thank you, Yennie.
I am pretty sure this is Jonas. And not that I want to add fuel to the fire or rumours...but why do we never see the king with Daniel, but more with Jonas

BTW I´ve never seen such a thing, they are pulling with the boat. I just know the big tires, you can sit it. It looks funny though...

That is most definitely the very handsome Jonas Bergström! No bodyguard looks that delicious

Great pictures, finally something from their summer holidays! I'd love to see Carl Philip and Emma together in pictures again, I loved the ones we got from France a few years ago now.

I think Jonas is very handsome and a great boyfriend from Madeleine but I wonder if he ever gets tired of following Madeleine? When she moved, he moved, when she came back for a quick trip to Sweden, he came with her. I'm not saying it's a bad thing but I wonder if he ever gets tired of it. I know we don't know if he wants to or she asks him or whatever but it seems like they're always together.

It's nice of them to come for Victoria's birthday though and Jonas looks like he's having fun with Carl Philip and the King. Probably the two hardest obstacles he has to pass to get permisison to marry Madeleine .
