Victoria and Daniel gave on Monday evening an interview to Expressen's Anne-Sofie Näslund.
It had been a long day with many meetings but still Victoria and Daniel remained among the last long after the panel discussion at Computer History Museum is over.
You've been around a lot of companies here today. What do you take with you from here?
- Yes, it has been very inspiring, it happens after all so very much which is why we are here - to get soaking up the atmosphere, meet all the interesting people and hear about their thoughts and ideas. It is great fun. Another part is to tell about the Swedish companies, that's what we have to offer. This evening we have seen a Nordic evening with an enormous breadth of companies. We have gone around and they have run their small pitches on us and it's very inspiring.
Prince Daniel is himself an entrepreneur. It itches in your fingers now?
- Well, not that way, but it's always inspiring. And the fun that we have a culture in Sweden now where more and more people want to start a business. We have many renowned Swedish companies that everyone here knows, and who also received venture-capital from the companies here.
I heard that one of the goals of the trip was to get better at social media. How good is the Crown Princess on social media?
- Well, have we really said that?
- Not me anyway, says Daniel.
- There is probably a lot of potential to be better, absolutely, but on the other hand, I am quite happy as it is, says the Crown Princess, laughing.

Princess Estelle has made ​​a success since she came to Silicon Valley. How many years will it be before she masters an iPad and other modern technologies better than her parents?
- It will not be so long, says Victoria. The children in this age and generation are incredibly deft at that. They take things in and learn so enormously fast.
- Among other things, with games and learning games, adds Daniel.
- Yes, it's like teaching material really, says Victoria.
Has Princess Estelle already got familiar with something?
- Yes, but the balance feels important. There will be much very classic books and rhymes, but with modern technology, we hope it provides a good balance.

About Wednesday at the court website:
The Crown Princess Couple's day began at Google headquarters Googleplex on Amphitheatre Parkway.
Then the Crown Princess and Prince Daniel visited incubator Y Combinator, one of the world's most successful. CEO Michael Seibel presented the business. At the same time with the visit was Y Combinator's "Prototype day" and the couple took part of the contractor's idea presentations.
In the Nordic Innovation House the crown princess couple took part in a working lunch with Nordic entrepreneurs. The theme was "Soft Landing for Nordic startups" and hosts were Yvonne Ericsson, Community Manager, and Anne Lidgard, Chairman of Nordic Innovation House.
The visit to Silicon Valley ended at Facebook. The Crown Princess couple was received by Lisa Foster, Head of Policy Programs.

I'm really disappointed to the court's reports of the visit. Since the photo agencies could attend only to Monday evening event, the court should have had at least one photo of visits to every company. Lucky some Facebook's have photo galleries.

Meeting representatives of Yubico
Princess Victoria, heir apparent of King Carl XVI Gustaf, is a cool, authentic and modern woman asking intelligent questions.
Educated at Yale, she married a successful entrepreneur and gym owner who at the time was also her personal trainer.
In case the Princess by chance finds this blog, I hope you continue to encourage entrepreneurship and to be yourself; a shining representative for Sweden. Meanwhile, my team at Yubico will do its best to help protect people across any country border, driving new open security standards for all Internet citizens.

Expressen has three photos (and three old photos) of Victoria and Daniel jogging in San Francisco with their bodyguard.
Expressen also tells that when Victoria and Daniel late Monday evening during an event at the Computer History Museum, after a long first study day, lined up on the last photographs Daniel joked and asked if they looked tired.
- No, Shhh! Do not talk about what time it is in Sweden, he said and made Victoria laughing.
But little jet lag didn't obviously prevent the well-trained pair from exercising even on this trip.

Some photos of Victoria, Daniel and Estelle in San Francisco, probably taken during the weekend. San Francisco is a pedestrian-friendly city, and both Daniel and Victoria were wearing comfortable shoes and had a pushchair to Estelle. They also took a tour at the famous cable cars.
Victoria and Daniel had chosen visiting places so that Estelle would like them and went among others to the city zoo. The family also visited a popular market where local growers sell organic vegetables, fruit and lemonade.

The consul general Barbro Osher, who hosted the visit (and made panncakes with Estelle) is a friend of Victoria and Daniel. She and her husband were invited to Victoria's and Daniel's wedding, at the guest list they were under the headline "personal friends of the bridal couple".

Retired priest Jan Sjöberg writes at his blog about the visit of Victoria, Daniel and Estelle to the swedish church.
First it was little secret, the whole thing. The Swedish Consulate General in San Francisco contacted the Swedish Church to inquire if they could locate a meeting between the Crown princess family and representatives of the Swedish colony. The whole thing would be an informal afternoon coffee and having focus in children.
The consulate had invited 90 people, including 30 children. And almost everyone came.
Before the royal family arrived, got the assembled and nervous congregation hear that it would be an event with Princess Estelle in the center. And so my wife and I practiced a number of children's songs with the congregation. And everyone started to relax.
Then the guests of honor arrived. Consul General began the reception, then my wife led children's songs Twinkle Twinkle little star and Itsy Bitsy Spider ... And Princess Estelle lit up and enjoyed the singing and her parents and all invited sang along.
After singing while in the church hall were treated to coffee upstairs and a cheerfully mingle with all the guests.
The cakes and cookies were baked in child size, and those who were given the chance to greet closely at the royal were almost all children. At last they saw a real princess, by the way two!
I notice that thousands of people have seen the photos my wife posted on Facebook, she received email from France and Denmark from magazines who want to publish Fb-image on the royals, the one that I took! I mean, it was anything but professional. And today, the picture in question on the Svensk Damtidnin's website too!
I mean Hey ..! Was this really that big, so remarkable?

Nordstjernan, a swedish newspaper in America, has published a long article about Victoria's and Daniel's visit to Silicon Valley.
