Princess Victoria plays homemaker while royal men take the mantle

01 AUGUST 2012

Sweden's Princess Victoria cancelled her appearance at the London Games so she could stay at home with her beautiful baby daughter Estelle.

Since giving birth in February, the smitten new mum has been relishing her new role – and not even the year's biggest event could tear her away from her little girl.

"The Crown Princess' priority is to stay home with Princess Estelle instead of going," a spokesman for the Palace said.

The future queen then shared a picture of her six-month-old delight on Facebook, along with her husband Daniel and parents, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia.

While Victoria is acting as staying at home mum, Olympic responsibilities have fallen to Daniel and her brother Carl Philip.

On Tuesday the pair looked patriotic, dressed in official colours, to watch their country’s female handball team take on Norway.

In a few days, the king and queen will cut short their summer holiday in Saint Tropez to join them in London.
