Victoria on glittering form ahead of spring baby

by In the final straight of her pregnancy when most expectant mums are looking forward to putting their feet up, Princess Victoria of Sweden slipped hers into vertiginous heels for a banquet in Stockholm over at the weekend.

Joined by her husband Prince Daniel and parents, the future queen was showing off her glittering maternity style in a sequin-studded gown and diamond tiara at one of two Nobel Prize ceremonies.



Another ceremony in Oslo was presided over by the Norwegian royal family, including Princess Mette-Marit, the wife of the country's crown prince, who was on glamorous form in a chic white suit.

This year's awards will have added resonance for Victoria, who is the only female heir apparent in the world. Three women were honoured bringing the total number of female peace prize laureates to 15.

Recipients were Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and women's right activist Leymah Gbowee, also of Liberia, and democracy activist Tawakkul Karman of Yemen.
