Princess Victoria planning home birth
Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria is reportedly planning a home birth.
The 38-year-old princess and husband Prince Daniel – who already have three-year-old Princess Estelle together – reportedly feel the Hala Palace would provide the perfect atmosphere to welcome their second child into the world next month, Swedish publication Svenskdam reports.
Victoria’s final official engagement is to take place today (15.02.16), however she is expected to continue working until as late as possible, just as she did while expecting Estelle.
Royal spokesperson Margarate Thorgren said: “The royal family have engagements that are not on the official calendar.”
Last week, Victoria attended the Global Change Awards – an event set up by H&M to recognise innovative ideas that will improve sustainability in fashion – at Stockholm’s City Hall in a stunning midnight blue floor-length lace gown.
The couple announced they were expecting their second child back in September, but have not revealed the gender of their unborn tot.
However, the princess – who has been rumoured to be expecting twins – joked Estelle isn’t interested in having either a little brother or a younger sister to play with.
She quipped recently: “What she really wants is a hamster!”
