Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden Turns 36
The very popular Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden celebrated her 36th birthday on July 14th.
The future Queen of Sweden was born at the Karolinska University Hospital in Solna, Stockholm in 1977 as the eldest child and daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. The Princess was christened Victoria Ingrid Alice Désirée at the Royal Palace Church on 27 September 1977.
The birth of her brother, Prince Carl Philip, in May 1979 temporarily displaced Victoria in the line of succession to second place, that is until a parliamentary change to the Swedish Act of Succession introduced absolute primogeniture in 1980. Following this Princess Victoria was created Crown Princess of Sweden and Duchess of Västergötland.
In June 2010, Crown Princess Victoria married Daniel Westling at a glittering ceremony in Stockholm; the couple currently have a daughter, Princess Estelle, who was born in February 2012.Filed under Swedish Royals
