Happy Name Day, Estelle!
Today, August 15th, is the name day of Princess Estelle of Sweden.
To celebrate the infant’s first name day, the Swedish Royal Court published a new photograph of Estelle with her parents, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. The image was taken at Haga Palace by Kate Gabor, the photographer who took the first official photographs of the Crown Princess Family.
