Victoria is in the habit of celebrating her birthday on Öland. Over the years this became a real "happening"

The people in Stockholm felt disadvantaged and also wanted a chance to celebrate and meet the crown princess.
So an event at her nameday got created.
A guard is giving flowers to her, music is getting played and Victoria is greeting her "fans"

"Name days" (namnsdagar) are celebrated in Sweden and Finland and is a tradition going back hundreds of years. The calendar has a name associated with each day. Originally only martyrs and saints names but not long ago more common names were added. It is like a mini birthday. The traditional coffee and cake and cards from family and close friends but perhaps also a small token gift.
Victoria is being celebrated on the day her name appear on the calendar.

Oh! That is a nice tradition! I wonder if they have a day named after "Elizabeth" so that someone can tell me what date it is, so that I can start a new tradition here at home!

No matter when she becomes Queen I do think she will do her best and be an excellent Queen
I agree with you. I feel this way about all the younger royal couples. Give them some time.

Yesterday, I saw these pics moving on the German TV channel ARD, and I must say, Daniel has a very sympathetic way to walk, to go, I do not dare to say, he has a sexy way to walk, but I do think it.

In Belgium it exists too. You have cards in the shops with "Bonne fête". Every day has a Saint associated and when it is the day of your Saint it is your "fête" !

I notice that too.

Danny is a very good looking individual indeed.

ImageShack Album - 14 images Didnt see this thread. Also, noone seems to have taken a picture at the moment when Victoria and Daniel kissed.

I got to say a few words to Daniel when he was handling all the flowers: "So you are a packmule now" His response was "Yes" with a smile

You got to see Daniel and Victoria, cool. Is this the first time you've been to the name day celebrations? What was the attmosphere like? Sorry to ask all these questions I just want to know what it was like.

It's nice to know that Daniel does have a sense of humour. I think that some of the Swedish media ect have rather unkind to him.

Name Day celebration began with the Royal Horse Guard giving horseshoe to Victoria and Prince Daniel. Horse Regent wore just these horseshoes at the wedding procession on June 19.
