Maybe the king decided that he doesn't want to celebrate his Name Day like this, that his birthday celebration is enough. The Name Days of the king, queen and crown princess are official flag days in Sweden, like their birthdays. But only Victoria's Name Day is officially celebrated.
Yes I think you are right, and I have heard the same thing from court/military officials in a video interview. What I recall Richard Beck-Friis saying is that Armed Forces doesn't celebrate her birthday, due to that it by tradition takes place on Öland, so this is their opportunity to do so. Don't have a good answer why the other name days aren't celebrated in the family though.

Estelle gets more adorable every time she appears. And I absolutely love that purple coat she is wearing!

I would be concerned if she looked too "proper", didn't interact, and looked at all stressed, but she doesn't, she looks like she's having a ball and her smile is enchanting.

But oh dear, I have always prided myself on not being one of those people that gush over children and call them "cute" and sort of wondered "what are you going on about . . . it's just a kid", when grown adults turned to mush! But, here I find myself hoist with my own petard, looking at those pictures and thinking "Awww, now isn't that just sweet"!

Those videos and photos of Victoria and her "mini me" in purple are a delight and are definitely heading us all into sugar shock, especially the video of "Does you Mother Know". It seems Victoria and Daniel are raising a very composed yet engaging "short person". Kudos for them that she seems patient and happy most of the time, and even takes a shot at "dignified".

I laughed when I saw the gif of Estelle running off to her Nanny at the end so her mother could do a crowd walkabout. She looked so excited, like she wanted to tell her all about what happened.

Psst, Mummy, I got a secret . . .

Yes! What I meant it is that to me it is incredible that a 3 year old behaves ao well, no matter how "right" she has been raised so far! I know children at that age can be very active, so I was just a litle surprised

Victoria says that "you are spoiling me" (meaning that she gets so much flowers). Someone asks how is the queen. Victoria says that after the circumstances... it is quite unpleasant... but it is like it is.

Thank you to those who posted the videos, articles and links of Victoria's Name Day.

I enjoyed watching the videos, Estelle's little dances in some of them were adorable. She's grown up a lot! I loved the end of the Expressen video where Estelle was collecting gravel from the ground with her nanny. Who were the two older women next to them taking photos of Estelle? From the way they were acting towards her, they appeared to be rather close to Estelle, but I can't identify them, though at first I thought they may be one of the Haga Princesses (or Countesses Bernadotte) or part of the Westling family.

The women are from the staff of the court, the other of them is the First Lady of the court, Kirstine von Blixen-Finecke. All the people standing close to them were from the staff of the court, according to Expressen's Johan T Lindwall.

The splendid photos of Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle wearing the matching coats reminds me of the pictures of Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret Rose of England wearing beautiful matching dresses and hats or matching hats and coats.

Some photos from different angle. Besides the photographers, also the staff of the court was taking photos of Victoria and Estelle.

There aren't photos from Name Day in 2004 at this thread. Then Victoria drove with horse and carriage from the Royal Stables to the Royal Palace.

Due to the birth of the Crown Princess Couple's second child in March, no name day celebration will take place at the Inner Courtyard on March 12.

Yes, definitely expected. I doubt days or a week after giving birth, she will be wanting to be away from her baby for the ceremony. Did they have it in 2012 after Estelle was born? Since there is the big celebration on her actual birthday in July, there will still be some celebration.
