Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden will reportedly give birth to her second child at her home, the Haga Palace, in March. It was reported by Swedish publication Svenskdam that she and her husband Prince Daniel were planning to deliver the baby at their home. The royal couple moved into the palace three years ago and lives with the princess’ family.
The 38-year-old Princess Victoria and her husband Daniel, 42, feel that the palace would be the perfect atmosphere to welcome the new royal baby. Already mother of 3-year-old Princess Estelle, the Swedish royal has not slowed down due to her pregnancy. She is still continuing with her official engagements.
The heir apparent confirmed that her final engagement before giving birth would be Monday; however, the princess is likely to carry on with her work until the last moment like she did during the time of her daughter's birth. “The royal family have engagements that are not on the official calendar,” Margarate Thorgren, Swedish Royal Court spokeswoman, told the local newspaper Expressen.
On Wednesday, the daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf attended the Global Change Awards gala at the City Hall in Stockholm. Victoria showed off her blossoming baby bump in a navy sheer and lace gown. She paired her show-stopping gown with a pair of statement drop earrings in blue marble. The Swedish royal carried a gold-beaded clutch bag and wore black high heels.
Victoria’s brunette long tresses were styled into a low bun. She glowed at the event and kept flashing a huge smile. The awards ceremony was organized by H&M to recognize innovative ideas that will improve sustainability in fashion. Meanwhile, there are reports doing the rounds that the royal will give birth to twins.
Victoria and Daniel announced their baby news in September through the official Facebook page of the Royal Palace of Sweden. As is a tradition with the Swedish royals, they have not revealed the gender of their unborn child.
