Crown Princess Victoria’s Kenya trip is getting tough and today she and Crown Prince Haakon are out on the coast, in 29-degree heat.

Lunch was taken at one of Africa’s most beautiful beaches, with turquoise blue sea and chalky white sand, and with blazing sun over the beach restaurant.

Perfect then that Victoria and Haakon each received a sun hat as a present.

Just any holiday – it’s not.

Victoria and Haakon are this week on duty for the United Nations Development Program UNDP – and it was two very dedicated royal UN workers who put on their blue vests.

Today’s assignment focused on the local project that protects and preserves the threatened mangrove:

The one that is usually called “the hero of the sea” and which, with its labyrinths of roots and tree trunks, functions as a nursery, shelter and pantry for many of the fish and animals that live in the water.

Here Victoria is partying with Haakon – see the pictures from the night’s party!

But the day already started early this morning, when both heirs to the throne left Nairobi in the UN plane and flew west, to the city of Kwale.

Victoria even got a boarding pass! She who never has to deal with such practical things herself.

In Kwale, one of Kenya’s first female governors hosted at her headquarters, and there was talk of female leadership and the challenges – and opportunities – of the climate crisis.

But then we got to see a transformation.

Victoria’s summery Ulla Johnson dress turned out to be a two-piece and suddenly the skirt (and sky-high suede pumps) were gone – and she appeared in chinos and trainers.

Just in time until it was time to step out onto the white sand.

Crown Princess Victoria in Kenya – with Crown Prince Haakon

The Crown Princess of Sweden and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway are in Kenya on a joint official visit arranged by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) – and it is actually the first time in 13 years that they are traveling together, says Victoria.
