Crown Princess Victoria
« on: April 23, 2005, 12:23:04 PM »
What kind of duties does she do? I mean, besides representing the Swedish royal family at important events and stuff? And when do you think she will become queen?...I mean, don't the current rulers of a country sometimes have thier hier(ess) take over for them even when they're not ill or dying?

I think her father will reign still a very many years.  Many Bernadottes have lived a long life, so I think that she has plenty of time learning her job.

I don't know what other duties she is performing besides taking regularly part of the official duties and representing Sweden on several visits abroad. And of course giving out prizes and stuff like that.

She is a patron for (list from royalcourt.se):

   * Nordens Ark i Bohuslän
   * Tobias Stiftelsen
   * Barndiabetesfonden
   * Stockholm Junior Water Prize
   * Kungl. Motorbåt Klubben
   * Lutherhjälpen
   * Sveriges Centralförening för Idrottens Främjande
   * Kungl. Svenska Segel Sällskapet
   * Radiohjälpens Nationaldagsinsamling
   * Förbundet Ung Företagsamhet
   * Fonden Kulturbro 2000

I think that I heard somewhere that Princess Victoria has an eating disorder.

The eating disorder (anorexia) was years ago. You can still find some pictures where she looks very thin. Today she is a true image of a good health.

The royal family told quite openly of the problems of CP Victoria and hoped to get time to recover. Their way of handling this matter must have helped a lot taking the worst stigma from eating disorders, but also boosted the research of eating disorders in Sweden where they have developed some new treatments for anorexia.

I just seen a picture of her in Japan, she looks really sporty bet I could still beat her in football lol. The Swedish royal family seems more down to earth then the others save Norway. She does look really healthy and humble.

Actually, many European royal families are down to earth, the Bernadottes included.

Is the rumor that CP Victoria wants to mary her personal trainer and gym owner true?

It seems that way....that most of the European royals are more down to earth....not to be mean, but why can't the older British royals take some pointers from their relatives?

Crown Princess Victoria was in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago.

She was here promoting a Swedish fashion week, and there was some coverage of her at a bowling club (lawn bowls) playing with friends and the old members.

I also remember reading how she had been offered film roles by a couple of hollywood producers  :-X

I really like Victoria, she appears so casual and down to earth, I think she will be a the next great Queen in European history :)..
