Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden comments on Baby Sussex

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden are currently on a three-day visit to Vietnam. Day one, 6 May was spent in Hanoi.

It was there that Crown Princess Victoria was told of the British royal baby news by Swedish news magazine Svenskdam. The Crown Princess and her husband, Prince Daniel decided to go on a walk through the Vietnamese capital when the magazine caught up with them.

When told that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a son, Crown Princess Victoria said exclusively to Svensdam, “No, they have? Oh, how fun!”

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are the parents of two: Princess Estelle, 7, and Prince Oscar, 3.

Their trip to Vietnam is to highlight 50 years of diplomatic relations between Sweden and Vietnam, as well as promote Swedish businesses during a Sweden-Vietnam Business Summit. They will also highlight the UN Sustainability Goals for Agenda 2030; Crown Princess Victoria is an Advocate for the Sustainability Goals.

Victoria and Daniel’s first day in Asia consisted of a guided tour of Hotel Metropole, met prominent Vietnamese women over lunch, attended an official lunch with the Vice President of Vietnam, visited the upper secondary school Thuc Nghiem, and attended an evening welcome dinner hosted by the Vietnamese government.

Crown Princess Victoria isn’t the only foreign royal to comment on the new royal baby. Princess Tessy of Luxembourg posted messages on her Twitter and Instagram yesterday.

“Congratulations dear Harry and Meghan on the arrival of your new baby boy. Gabriel, Noah and I wish the three of you – now a little family – only the best, much happiness and good health. 🦋❤️ This is extremely exciting, and we can not wait to meet the little man in due course,” she said on Instagram.
