Princess Sofia of Sweden is currently on maternity leave. The 31-year-old royal has finished off all her official duties ahead of giving birth to her baby. Sofia visited Stockholm’s Sophiahemmet hospital to carry out her last royal engagement on Sunday.
The brunette beauty showed off her blossoming baby bump in black trousers paired with a white shirt. She wore a black lace jacket on top and accessorized with a delicate necklace and matching drop earrings. The would-be-mother’s long brunette tresses were pulled tightly into a ponytail.
The private medical facility is one of the oldest in the country and was named after King Oscar II’s wife Queen Sofia. This was the first time the Swedish princess visited the hospital after her appointment as the honorary president of the hospital in January. She replaced Princess Christina, one of King Carl XVI Gustaf’s older sisters.
Sofia covered her baby bump in a surgical gown and toured the facilities. She chatted with a number of staff members of the Sophiahemmet hospital. Just last month, Sofia showed off her stylish baby bump when she visited the Riddarholm Church. She was pictured standing next to the grave of Karl XII, wearing an all-black maternity dress that included a belted coat and a maternity blouse from Seraphina.
Sofia and her husband Prince Carl Philip, 36, are expected to welcome their first child in April. The royal couple announced their baby news in October. The Swedish royal court made the announcement on Facebook, while confirming the news.
The couple’s first child will be fifth in line to the Swedish royal throne. The pair have been together for over five years and tied the knot in a high profile wedding in Stockholm in June. Carl Philip and Sofia married in the royal palace’s chapel.
Of late the Swedish royal family are witnessing a baby boom. Last month, Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel welcomed their second child – Prince Oscar on March 2. Her younger sister Princess Madeleine welcomed her second baby Prince Nicolas in June.
