Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden cradles baby bump on Colombia visit

Arriving in Colombia on Wednesday, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband Prince Daniel began the second leg of their South America visit. The princess, who is expecting her second child with former personal trainer Daniel, showed off her blossoming baby bump on the first day of engagements in Cartagena.

Victoria, 38, was a vision in a floral dress that featured big, colourful prints. The pregnant royal, who accessorised with a cream envelope clutch and chic oversized sunglasses, cradled her growing bump while she walked around the city's old town.

The future queen of Sweden and her husband Daniel were given a tour of the historic centre and met with an organisation that helps reintegrate former guerrilla members into society. The couple also attended a conference on the Caribbean shipping association.

Later that evening Victoria and Daniel, 42, were the guests of honour at a reception hosted by the mayor of Cartagena, Dionisio Velez. Victoria, whose pregnancy was announced last month by the Swedish royal palace, wore a pretty lilac dress that featured an empire line, highlighting her growing bump.

The royals had flown in from Peru, where they started their official visit on Monday. During their trip, Victoria and Daniel, who are parents to three-year-old Princess Estelle, attended a Nordic-Latin seminar on education, visited the Museo de Arqueologia y Antropologia in Lima and also made a stop at H&M's flagship store.

Victoria is a big fan of the Swedish clothing giant and often steps out for royal duty in pieces designed by the high-street brand. The princess viewed the much-anticipated Balmain x H&M collection and looked particularly interested in a black faux fur jacket.

A statement was released via the royal palace, announcing: "Their Royal Highnesses Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are happy to announce that The Crown Princess is expecting their second child. The birth is expected to take place in March of 2016."

Victoria's new sister-in-law Princess Sofia, who married the crown princess' brother Carl Philip in June of this year, is also expecting a baby in April.
