Crown Princess Victoria sparks controversy over choice of dog for family pet
Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel have caused controversy over their choice of pet dog.
The family’s puppy Rio is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles spaniel and a Poodle.
The Poodle is a popular choice for crossbreeding, particularly in Sweden, with the most common mixes for them being Labradors or Cocker Spaniels.
However, the Swedish Kennel Club wrote an open letter to the royal asking her to consider the breeding she supports by owning a mixed dog.
In an interview with Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, the princess responded to her critics, as well as sharing her views on the importance of culture in Swedish society.
The article’s author Ylva Lagercrantz Spindler, said: “The Crown Princess does not seem to have taken on condemnatory views.
“On the contrary, she shows curious interest when I tell her that we also have a mixed breed, a mix between Spanish Water Dog and Labrador.”

Lena Tindall’s cute cousin moment as she sports Isla’s classic coat
Mike and Zara Tindall’s daughter, Lena, attended her first-holiday service at St Mary Magdalene this year and in an adorable sibling moment, she was seen wearing a red classic coat that her cousin Isla Philips wore in 2017, a news report has claimed.
In 2017, Lena’s elder cousin Isla Phillips, then five, first wore the festive red coat for the annual Sandringham Christmas stroll.
Isla, now 11, and her sister Savannah, 12, are the daughters of Zara’s brother Peter Phillips and his ex-wife Autumn Kelly, and first cousins with Mike and Zara’s three kids — Mia, eight, Lena, and Lucas, one.
While taking part in the annual royal walkabout on Christmas day, the cute cousin moment took place as Lena left church holding hands with Savannah, who also sported a royal rewear.
The preteen was pictured in a military-inspired green dress coat, which she evidently borrowed from her mom’s closet.
