Her first baby is due within a few weeks, but Sweden's Princess Sofia, 31, isn't slowing down.

Like her sister-in-law Crown Princess Victoria, 38, who was on duty seven days before she gave birth, the wife of dashing Prince Carl Philip doesn't seem to be listening to the advice of her mother-in-law Queen Silvia, 72.

On Thursday, the royal mom-to-be joined her husband at Stockholm's Royal Palace to meet United Nations ambassadors. And once again, she wrapped her bump in blue – this time, a deep royal-blue hue with a pleated skirt and ribbon tie.

According to the Swedish outlet Svenskdam, she borrowed the dress from Victoria.

Project Playground arbetar för att alla barn och unga ska växa upp med framtidstro och möjlighet att påverka sitt eget liv. Möjligheterna ska dessutom vara lika för alla - därför är det extra viktigt att uppmärksamma #internationellakvinnodagen. Såhär säger en av Project Playgrounds grundare, Prinsessan Sofia: "Övertygelsen om alla människors lika värde var själva grunden till att vi startade Project Playground. Generellt sett är flickor mer utsatta, speciellt i de områden där vi arbetar, vilket gör att jämställdhet är ett självklart fokus i all vår verksamhet varje dag - inte bara idag." Med på bilden är också vår generalsekretare Daniel Madhani. #projectplayground #internationalwomensday #prinsessansofia

A day earlier, a dressed-down Sofia – in a black sweater and ponytail – visited the Stockholm office of Project Playground, a nonprofit that aids disadvantaged children both locally and in South Africa.

Also on March 9, the princess was photographed with Christian Nordenström, the founder of Make a Change Association, a group providing education, support and counseling to help victims of bullying.

And she has no plans to put the brakes on anytime soon: Ahead of her April due date, the glamorous royal is scheduled to meet crime prevention experts from the National Council and to accompany Queen Silvia to a workshop for refugee children.

After that the heavily pregnant princess may finally be able to enjoy a break.

As for her maternity leave, her calendar is only clear until the end of April, when she's scheduled to take part in extensive 70th birthday celebrations for her father-in-law, King Carl XVI Gustaf.
