Crown Princess Victoria's Official Visit to Brazil; March-April 2006
 
Ericsson Racing Team welcomes HRH the Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden as guest

17 March 2006 - the Ericsson Racing Team is honoured to welcome Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, during the Volvo Ocean Race stopover. Crown Princess Victoria, godmother of the Ericsson boat, will come as a special guest of the team. She will sail with them as onboard guest for the in-port race on 25 March, and will wish them farewell as they set off for the fifth leg to Baltimore, USA, on 2 April.

(...)

Arriving in Rio de Janeiro on 24 March, Her Royal Highness will join the team at the Ericsson shore base for a team meeting and an informal lunch. She will be given a tour of the Volvo Ocean Race Village, meet the other competitors and learn what life is like for the sailors as they discuss their experiences in the Southern Ocean and prepare for the imminent inshore race. On 25 March she will take part in the fifth in-port race and will attend the official Leg Four Prize-Giving as the guest of honour.

Amongst other activities during her stay, The Crown Princess will pay a visit to Ericsson's Rio de Janeiro office to meet Ericsson employees. She is planned to attend a luncheon hosted by Ericsson and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Brazil to the benefit of the World Childhood Foundation; founded by H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden. The mission of World Childhood Foundation is to defend the rights of the child and to promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children at risk all over the world. Crown Princess Victoria's visit will conclude on 2 April when she will bid the Ericsson Racing Team "goodbye" and head out on the water to watch the fleet's departure for Baltimore, USA.

Yes, the Queen's Brazilian mother Alice had many siblings so today the Royal Family has a very large family in Brazil. The Queen keeps in touch with them constantly and visits them yearly, and I suspect Victoria will be spending a lot of time with them during her stay in Brazil at this time.

Victoria needs some sun, she looks so pale...

For how long will she stay in Brazil?
