Crown Princess Victoria has been photographed volunteering for an important cause during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Swedish royal, 42, helped to make food boxes which will be delivered to homeless and vulnerable people. In a post shared to the royal family's Instagram account, a picture showed Victoria wearing an apron and plastic gloves as she assembled the essential meals. The mum-of-two had her brown locks tied back and smiled as she worked, appearing to be in great spirits.

The behind-the-scenes image was captioned with a quote from the Crown Princess, which read: "I feel like so many others in the community that I want to do something and it feels good to be here with you today. It is important that we who have the opportunity try to contribute and help in the ways we can. We can make a difference together." The caption then went on to explain that Victoria had visited local volunteer organisation Stockholms Stadsmission on Monday in order to lend a hand, saying: "Many of the City Mission's volunteers are older and themselves at risk and therefore cannot help the business right now. The Crown Princess therefore went to the City Mission yesterday to help make food boxes."
