It was business as usual for Sweden's Princess Victoria on Thursday, despite having sprained her ankle on a recent skiing holiday.Not one to let her injury get in the way, Victoria soldiered on at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, sporting a large leg cast as she presented the Tobias Prize. 


The 36-year-old wore an elegant all-black outfit, teaming a lace pencil skirt with a cropped-sleeved top and black tights.Victoria sensibly chose flat footwear, wearing a buckled black ballet pump as she presented Sweden's top scientific prize to Sten Eirik W.Jacobsen.
