This weekend, Crown Princess Victoria left Haga and the family to travel to Kenya, where she will spend several days.

But the crown princess does not make the trip herself.

Victoria’s good friend Crown Prince Haakon is also in Kenya and the royals will carry out several missions and visits together.

It was, in other words, a very busy day for Victoria and Haakon.

And tomorrow is expected to be at least as eventful. According to it royal calendar the crown princess stays in Kenya at least until Friday.

Next week, however, Victoria is back home in Sweden – then a visit to the Forensic Medicine Agency awaits with Prince Daniel.
