31 AUGUST 2011

Looking lovely in a navy blue floor-length dress, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her baby bump stole the limelight at The Polar Music Prize in Stockholm.

Radiant and clutching a bouquet of flowers, the mum-to-be smiled broadly as she arrived with her proud husband, Prince Daniel.

It's the first time since the announcement that Victoria's blossoming bump has been seen clearly.

The couple were accompanied by Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustaf.

The baby will be the first grandchild for the reigning king and will be second in line to the throne after Victoria.

King Carl Gustaf was responsible for presenting the prestigious awards at Stockholm's Concert Hall.

This year's Polar Music Prize went to US rock star and Seventies icon Patti Smith for her music and lyrics.

The 64-year-old had shown "how much rock 'n roll there is in poetry and how much poetry there is in rock 'n roll," the jury said.

After accepting the prize, Patti expressed her thanks to the people and fellow musicans who had given her "energy and encouragement".

She pledged to "work harder and magnify the faith you have shown in me".
