Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden shows off baby bump in Peru

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden was the picture of health and happiness as she arrived in Peru to begin her official visit on Monday, accompanied by her husband Prince Daniel. It comes just six weeks after the couple announced that they are expecting their second child in March 2016.

Victoria, 38, relied on her favourite maternity brand Séraphine for her tour wardrobe. The future queen looked radiant in a red dress designed by the London-based store, which is also popular with the Duchess of Cambridge.

Victoria's bump was clearly on show in the fitted dress, and the pregnant royal accessorised with a gold dragonfly brooch and a black and white floral pin in her hair.

She and Daniel, who are parents to three-year-old Princess Estelle, began their day of engagements at the Nordic-Latin seminar on education. The couple then visited the Museo de Arqueologia y Antropologia, also in Lima the largest and oldest museum in Peru documenting the history of the Latin American country.

An engagement a little closer to home was also on the cards, as Victoria and Daniel stopped by an H&M store. The princess is a big fan of the Swedish clothing giant and often steps out for royal duty in pieces designed by the high-street brand.

Victoria chose to wear a patterned gown from the H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection for her brother Prince Carl Philip's wedding in June of this year. The summery number was from the brand's eco-friendly line that is "good for people, the planet and your wallet" according to the store's official website.

On their first day in Peru, Victoria and Daniel were welcomed to the presidential palace by President Ollanta Humala and his wife Nadine Heredia. The royal couple's next stop is Colombia before they return to Sweden on Friday.
