Victoria's back

Four weeks after she welcomed her son, we're welcoming Crown Princess Victoria back to public events. The heir to the throne of Sweden attended her first engagement yesterday since giving birth to Prince Oscar on March 2nd. And she looked very, very well indeed.

Victoria attended the annual Dag Hammarskjold lecture, held every year since 1998 in memory of the man who was the United Nations' second Secretary-General. Speaking this year was the man who currently holds that post, Ban Ki-Moon, who talked about the challenges facing the UN in a changing global landscape.

The Crown Princess and the UN Secretary-General have met several times before and in January, Ban Ki-Moon appointed Victoria as an advocate for the promotion of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Victoria headed to Stockholm City Hall for the lecture which is a regular event in Sweden's royal calendar. And then it was back home to Haga to see how her husband. Prince Daniel, was getting on with twenty seven day old Oscar and their four year old, Princess Estelle.

The next scheduled events for Victoria come at the end of April when she, along with many other members of the Swedish Royal Family, are set to attend a wide range of engagements marking the 70th birthday of her father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, which falls on April 30th. And we could well see Victoria at the Te Deum which will be held following the birth of the baby of her brother and sister-in-law, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, due in April.
