Victoria leads the way on day two of Chile State Visit

There was business, there was lunch, there were politics, there were photographs but most of all there was a Crown Princess in bright white who stole the show on day two of an historic State Visit to her country. As Chile's President, Michelle Bachelet, continued her tour of Sweden, the first by a head of state from her country, Victoria became the star of the show.

The Crown Princess, her husband Prince Daniel, and her brother, Prince Carl Philip, attended a lunch for the President of Chile at Stockholm City Hall alongside King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.

And while her dad had helped to talk business at the start of the day, this midday break starred Victoria and her two princes.

The lunch was hosted by the Mayor of Stockholm, Eva Louise Erlandsson Slorach and Finance Commissioner, Karin Wanngard. The morning had been all about money as President Bachelet and King Carl XVI Gustaf joined a business forum focused on strengthening co-operation between Chile and Sweden.

Following the lunch, President Bachlet met the Speaker of the Swedish Parliament while the evening promised a return dinner hosted by the Chilean leader for the King and Queen of Sweden. Victoria probably won't be there - she missed the State Dinner for President Bachelet at the Royal Palace last night, understandable with an eight week old and a four year old at home. But after her stellar appearance at lunch, it won't make any difference - today, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden led the way.
