I was at the Royal Palace today, the first time i´ve seen the Crownprincess live, and it was really nice. It´s not such a big ceremony but it was fun to see it live. Victoria looked really beautiful and stopped infront of me to get some flowers from children - she was very sweet and talked a little with them in swedish, to the rest of us in the crowd she kept it in english (many tourists was there - i was surrounded by germans ).
I took some pics with my phone:

Two photos from Iltalehti:

BTW, are name days celebrated in other countries than Sweden and Finland? I believe its' origins lie in the past when catholicism was the main religion here and saints had their own feast days, correct me if I'm wrong. Of course, the list of names for each day of the year has since been updated many times to keep up with the names used today. I have three names, so I get to celebrate a lot during the year! Well, not really since we mainly celebrate the first name, not the other given names. Name day here in Finland is a small affair. You might get a post card and when I was small, I would get some kind of a small present.

Has anyone heard about the representation gala; when does it begin? I can't wait to see photos! And thank you all for those wonderful photos and sharing your stories!

It is a real pleasure to see Crown Princess Victoria truly happy and satisfied with life. She is like a flower basking in sunshine.

Can someone clarify why Victoria's name day is such a big event with 160 guests at the official dinner? I'm asking because my friends are asking me this.

One of the Finnish tabloids is trying to make something out of the fact that the King wasn't at the palace today with a headline saying "Why weren't you there, Carl Gustaf?" and stating that perhaps the king would have been there if Daniel wasn't... Well, in my opinion attending the meeting of the International Chamber of Commerce is a bit more important than attending your daughter's name day celebration, especially since His Majesty is attending the gala dinner. I think it was already in the calendar before the whole engagement was even on.

Victoria´s name day is NOT a big event, just the event at noon with flowers and cheer from the public. The Dinner tonight is a "Representationsmiddag" dinner with officials and other important guests that are held 2-3 times a year - this dinner has nothing to do with Victorias name day, it´s just a coinsident that they occour on the same day.

As you said the King had other things to do today, and if i remember correctly it´s not the norm that the king and other familymembers attend Victorias name day

This is my favorite picture from the day. It looks like the King is staring down Daniel and Daniel looks slightly scared.
