Princess reporting for duty! Victoria of Sweden dons military uniform and takes aim with a gun as she takes part in exercises with the Swedish Home Guard
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden looked laser-focused as she took part in an army training exercise today.
Victoria, 44, wore a regulation uniform in Salenfjallen to meet the Swedish Home Guard and take part in their exercise this morning.
The mother-of-two learned to handle the squad’s weapons and followed the soldiers’ lead during a training exercise she took very seriously.
She also took the time to give the Guard’s German Shepherd some well-deserved cuddles.

It was a no-thrill day for Victoria who wore a fit-for-purpose uniform, complete with combat boots and hat.
Her dark tresses were styled in a neat bun under her cap, and she sported a very natural makeup, with just a dash of mascara and a very light touch of foundation.
The royal, who is first in line for Sweden’s throne, listened carefully to the members of the Guards who talked her through the key points of the exercise.
A guard showed her how to handle one of their rifles and other weapons ahead of the training.

Victoria, who is no strangers to military exercises, having attended several throughout her life as a royal, expertly took aim, before handing back the weapons.
She then took part in the mock manoeuvre and followed the lead of the guards around her, crouching and signalling like a pro.
After the exercise was over, the royal, who seemed in great spirits, took the time to pet the German Shepherd who guided her squad during the manoeuvre.
It has been a busy summer for Victoria, who welcomed a new nephew when her brother Prince Carl Philip and his wife Princess Sofia gave birth to Prince Julian in the Spring.
She attended the newest Swedish royal’s christening in August alongside her husband Prince Daniel. 48, and their two children Princess Estelle, nine and Prince Oscar, five.
