What a great surprise! I thought we would get photos only on the National Day. The photos are lovely. HQ photos at court press room, Victoria and Daniel have used a new photographer Linda Broström.
https://www.kungahuset.se/pressrum/p...magesOnly=true

The court tells in a press release, that Estelle starts on 21st August her preschool class at Campus Manilla School in Royal Djurgården.
A photo opportunity will be held on Tuesday 21 August for limited Swedish media.
Since a photo opportunity is being held on Tuesday 21 August, we ask the media to show consideration to Princess Estelle and the Crown Princess Couple, as well as other children who go to Campus Manilla and their families.

- Of course, it meant a process to arrive at this choice, but now the decision has been made, says Margareta Thorgren about the choice of the school for Estelle.
Campus Manilla is an independent elementary school, and on the school's website it says that they "house in an attractive building in scenic surroundings on Djurgården".
Maija Möller, principal of the school, thinks they welcome all students who will start at Campus Manilla.
- We look forward to many wonderful school years together. All parents choose the school that is best for their children, and there is no exception in this case either, she says.

WOW, those are such beautiful photos of Estelle and Oscar. I love the one of Estelle showing her little brother the tulip (?); she looks so happy to be teaching her brother something about nature and Oscar looks really curious! The quality is great and I really love the way they've been focused so the lighting really has an effect.
Estelle and Oscar seem to be happy children and I can imagine that Estelle loves being a big sister and is very caring towards her younger brother. Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine all seem quite close to one another and never seem to have many rifts as much as some other RFs do (or at least, disputes that are not released publicly). They seem to be a peaceful and loving family.

Expressen's royal expert Elias Giertz talks with reporter Lisah Silfwer at Expressen's royal TV-program "Kungafamiljen".
Silfwer says that the icehockey world champions were celebrated at the Palace and Estelle and Oscar were there and we got some cute photos. Giertz says that already last year Victoria, Daniel, Estelle, Oscar and Carl Philip welcomed the world champions to the Palace when the king and queen were on their state visit to Indonesia. Giertz says that Estelle and Oscar became a little the main persons at the event, and Silfwer says that they seemed to manage from it very well. Yes, they played with the trophy and these are cute photos we see, but this is also a way for princess Estelle and prince Oscar to learn about the mission. You can say whatever you want, but Estelle and Oscar have been born into this, and they will work with representing Sweden in many ways, it can be just welcoming the sports stars to the Palace and pose for cute photos. Silfwer asks Giertz how much he thinks the crown princess couple are thinking about getting their children into these missions? Giertz says that it is difficult to say but he thinks they have a conscious strategy. Estelle will become the queen and the Head of State. If you think how the king and queen have done with Victoria, they have let her come with them and see how they are working. And Victoria has said she appreciates that, she has became very well prepared for her role. The king had a short time to prepare to his role, he was very young when he became the Head of State. So this is partly conscious, to take the children with to some missions, joyful ones, not to a seminar or something like that. Silfwer asks when we can see princess Estelle on her first own work event? Giertz says that it is difficult to see, but he thinks we will see Estelle more and more with her mother or father at work events, later on at some more "difficult" work events. At lectures, perhaps when she is twelve or thirteen. First own work events when she is a teenager. Giertz says that this is his guessing, but we don't know how the royal court or her parents think.

If I remember it correctly Victoria's first solo engagement involved planting a tree on a school trip. Then some time late she were present at the greeting of guests at a banquet wearing a giant bow at her waist and picking up a flash bulb (remember those) that a journalist had dropped. Afterwards it was told that the Queen was especially pleased with the latter and as we've seen it's very typical of Victoria.

Victoria's first solo engagement was probably this: Visiting Skansen and inaugurating Skogens Hus with her schoolmates in 1989

The court told in a press release in May, that Estelle starts on 21st August her preschool class at Campus Manilla School in Royal Djurgården.

During the last days the swedish press has told about a conflict at the school.

An infected conflict is based on Princess Estelle's future school Campus Manilla. The principal has been forced out and parents are upset, reports Dagens Nyheter. Now Svensk Damtidning can reveal that one of Sweden's most influential families of finance chooses to move their children from the school.
It was in mid-May Svensk Damtidning could tell that Princess Estelle would start in pre-school class at Campus Manilla. It was a news court also confirmed.
The school was considered perfect for the princess, as they have compulsory dance in preschool classes and private cooks who cook the school food.
The school located on scenic Djurgården is considered one of Sweden's most prestigious schools and has one of the longest queues in the country. Both people from senior business families and friends of the royal family have their children at the school.
But now it storms around Campus Manilla.
A conflict between the leaders, board and influential families has escalated after the firing of Maija Möller Grimakova, the principal. Parents who have donated millions to school require the principal to be reinstated - and that the board leaves, writes Dagens Nyheter.
The conflict and the crisis should not have anything to do with Princess Estelle to start school after the summer. And the court, who does not comment on the conflict itself, ensures that the plans for the princess's school start are fixed.
Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Madeleine and Prince Carl Philip spent most of their years in primary school at another private school - Carlsson's school at Östermalm in Stockholm. Even there is a huge queue to the school.

Victoria and Daniel surely will be concerned about this situation. It seems that the Sewdish elite is formed from z very early age. Hope she also interacts with children from other backgrounds.

Estelle and Oscar have their cousins Hedvig and Vera, and other children of the families of Daniel's relatives. And of course Victoria and Daniel's friends from Daniel's side have children too with whom Estelle and Oscar interact.

Gossip magazine Hänt i Veckan last week, on the cover
Victoria and Daniel's deep concern for Oscar
Too early to say something
But the article tells about what Victoria said last year at her 40th birthday interviews about Estelle and/or Oscar possibly having dyslexia.

Hopefully they can handle school things. Anyway, has school any experience about dyslexia in case that Estelle has that? Victoria, Carl-Philip and the king has dyslexia so I wouldn't be surprised if Estelle has same case.

I'm sure that Victoria and Daniel get help from queen Silvia, if either of their children would have dyslexia, same goes to Carl Philip's children. Queen Silvia found the ways to help her children. Also countess Marianne Bernadotte has a lot of knowledge about dyslexia, and I'm sure that Victoria and Daniel would get help from the Marianne Bernadotte Centrum, the research center at Karolinska Institutet with the aim of promoting and supporting research in childcare and dyslexia.

It seems more likely there is simple general concern one or more of the grandchildren may suffer from dyslexia due to the family history.

Oscar is barely 2. Even to start exhibiting early signs of dyslexia, that would be quite young. Generally it would be around 3 for most doctors to voice concerns. Estelle at 6 on the other hand is at an age where she would be showing evident signs, and a doctor would classify it.

The family has plenty of experience with it. And the resources to help any of the kids who may have it.

Hedvig amd Vera are much older but it indeed seems that Daniel's family and friends are only partly part of the rich and famous social circle, so that is a good thing.
