Thank´s for the info, sounds great! This must be the first time that Carl-Philip is representing sweden on a major international travel without his parents, right?

robby86 08-15-2006 12:55 PM

I was going to ask the same thing! I am glad to see him doing something like this with his sister.

mixer2002de 08-25-2006 09:20 AM

Do you think he just goes wit her because she is single? Wouldnt that be a job for a husband of a crown princess?

grevinnan 08-25-2006 09:41 AM

When the day comes and Victoria is the Queen, Carl Philip will be her back-up until her own children are grown. Carl Philip has completed at least the first part of his post highschool graduation and I am certain we will see much more of him in a official capacity. Victoria often accompanied the King and Queen earlier on in her training and now Carl Philip accompanies Victoria. He is there as the second in line after Victoria, not as her date in lieu of a husband.

What a beautiful dress. Is this a first official visit for Carl Philip with his sister?

HRH Mims 08-29-2006 04:25 PM

I love her outfits! Victoria looks very young, like when she was 10 :lol: and my mom always tells that good people are never getting older :rofl:
Carl Philip looks great (very sexy at all :rofl: :rofl:). But he will never get so much attention as Viky. :lol:

Marengo 08-29-2006 06:55 PM

Finallyu some new pioctures of my favourite beau garcon! And he looks great I must say. Victoria has a young and fresh dress. Good to see that they are doing this together. It must be good to know for Victoria that she has a brother who is so supportive.
