Nature and outdoor activities, including walking and skiing, are among The Crown Princess's favourite pastimes.
She loves spending her summers at Solliden Palace on the island of Öland, where she enjoys helping out with gardening activities and has inherited Queen Victoria's (1862 - 1930) great interest in bee-keeping and production of honey.
The Crown Princess is interested in art and enjoys painting. She is also a great animal lover. Dogs are her favourite animals and she loves to take long walks with her labrador Jambo.
