It has been a busy day for Crown Princess of Victoria of Sweden who stepped out for her third engagement in 24 hours on Tuesday evening.

The first in-line to the Swedish throne looked her elegant best as she attended the annual meeting of the Friends of the Nationalmuseum. 

The mother-of-two showcased her enviable curves in a form-fitting cream gown printed with pink blooms for the event in Stockholm.

Making a bold statement with her dress Victoria, 40, kept her accessories to a minimal in the form of a white patent clutch and a matching court shoe.

As is typical of the royal she chose to wear her famous brunette locks up in a low chignon style.

The Friends of Nationalmuseum were founded in 1911 by the Crown Prince Gustaf (VI) Adolf and Thorsten Laurin. 

Ever since, the Friends have supported the museum, mainly through donations but being ambassadors for the museum as Victoria is.

Earlier today  busy Victoria visited Riksdag for the unveiling of a bust of her late great uncle, Swedish diplomat Folke Bernadotte joined her mother, 74-year-old Queen Silvia, at the event.

The Count of Bernadotte helped to save tens of thousands of prisoners from German concentration camps during World War II before his death in 1948.

The mother-of-two managed to squeeze in one further engagement yesterday evening when she attended a literary awards in the Swedish capital.

The royal, 40, wore the elegant navy tea dress when she attended the ceremony for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in Stockholm. 

The award is named after one of Sweden’s best-loved children’s authors Astrid Lindgren who penned Pippi Longstocking.  

This year it was presented to American author Jacqueline Woodson, who wrote Miracle’s Boys and Brown Girl Dreaming.  

Victoria posed for pictures with Woodson and Swedish Minister of Culture and Democracy Alice Bah Kuhnke on the red carpet.

Who was Folke Bernadotte?

Swedish diplomat Folke Bernadotte was King Carl XVI Gustav’s godfather and his father’s cousin.

During the Second World War, Count Bernadotte negotiated the release of an estimated 31,000 prisoners from German concentration camps, including 450 Danish Jews from Theresienstadt.

After the war he worked as a UN mediator between Israel and Palestine, before he was assassinated in Jerusalem in 1948.

Crown Princess Victoria’s daughter Estelle, third in line to the throne, is named after his wife.

The mother-of-two studied diplomacy and Swedish foreign policy before becoming a full-time working member of the royal family.

The accomplished Yale graduate, who speaks four languages, was not expected to take to the throne when she was born in 1977 but a change in the law of succession three years later changed that.

In 2010, she married her former personal trainer Daniel Westling in front of 1,200 guests at Stockholm Cathedral, and have since settled comfortably into public life with their two children, Princess Estelle, six, and Prince Oscar, who turned two in March.
