I look forward to this celebration. She is turning 30 a very accomplished woman and a true portrait of a modern day princess.

I hope she realizes all her dreams in the coming decade.

SVT will broadcast an special interview with Victoria

SVT1 /July 13/ 9:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Wonderful to be 30! Or a 30 years crisis? Crown Princess Victoria is talking with Victoria Dyring about her thoughts on her birthday and the hard, but pleasant life as crown princess.

As not other to expect the press has very special gifts for Victoria´s 30th birthday. Wonderful articles and columns on age, marriage and fertility. Here is the first column, translated by me. I´d hope many more would come

Poor Royal


Crown Princess Victoria is going to turn 30. On the 14th of July she will be forced to show up on Öland with a sausage on her head and to look happy, happy, happy.

30 years. That´s factualy described as young middle age. 30 years and no child.

What are actually the king and Queen thinking about that? I´m understanding nothing. In history a Royal house all the time had only one task: to reproduce themselves.
Queens have been decapitated and repudiated out of the inability of getting pregnant. We can indeed say, that there is these days no need for a future king or queen to get children, but just imagine: a Royal family without little princesses and princes? So...meaningless!

And here we have Vickan. Young and dazzling and steaming of fertility. Year by year (the same)

But now she is 30. A woman´s body - which has no clue about not living in the stone age anymore - is most fertile in between 18 and 24. After 30 fertility goes down and after 35 even drastically

I am wondering again, why doesn´t she marry? Is the thought of a child with Ockelbo genes so repugnant, that the king is simply hoping, that his daughter´s eggs would shrink away, if one would be lucky enough to postpone the wedding long enough?

Or does he want, that Carl Philip would produce Bernadotte heirs. Daddy King is known for not having been glad about the change of the succession law, when his children were little.

Strange that is. How long have they been together now - the princess and the gym owner? Definitely many years. Only naturally, that they wanna create a family!

What else can one do in a relationship going on year by year? Working out together in a gym doesn´t do it.

And look at the Royal families in remaining Europe: Mary, Mette Marit and Maxima. Crown Princesses, who just spurt babies out

But Victoria, she still has to go with being a godmother, or a bridesmaid at a wedding. Poor rich 30 year old.

Hmm......her siblings can't marry until she does, and the Firm doesn't approve of Daniel. I'm guessing no grandkids for a while. But Happy Birthday Princess Vicky! I can't believe she's going to be 30 - that makes her 2 years younger than me. I thought she was younger than that.

Oh please. Here we go again with all the marriage, age, babies articles and remarks. Geez. Poor girl. If I were her, I would dread having a birthday every year for these reasons alone. Why can't they just leave her alone I wonder? I know her country wants to see her get married and have kids. I mean, heck, I'm not even Swedish, but I would love to see her get married and have kids.
But it is such a personal decision. I would not want her to get into anything that she did not want. I would wish for her to get married because she wants to and the time is right for her to do it. It's her life after all. And I would rather see her get married and stay married than to get divorced.
And as for the baby thing....Sheesh! Ladies now a days are having babies at all ages. I had my daughter when I turned 33! Other CP's are in their early to mid 30's and having babies. So what.
I just wish she could have a normal birthday and celebrate in the normal way with out all the desparaging remarks from the press/media.
30 is a great age!! She has a lot to look foward to!

Lena, what an impressing article you've translated for us! Poor royal. That's exactly what I think about her. Poor Victoria.

I'm just going to ignore that article on "Poor Victoria" and concentrate on the joy of her 30th birthday. Was anyone able to confirm that "The Firm" doesn't approve of Daniel?

To me, Victoria doesn't seem 30. She still seems young and vibrant, like a 24-year-old. Will this be a bigger celebration than her other birthdays, or the same?

And about that article- Victoria will have kids someday, whether she's 33 or 40, she'll have them.

Hadn´t heared about that... but I´ve read somewhere that Lionel Richie had been invited once again. On the website there is just swedish artists mentioned so far

I am so happy for CP Victoria. 30 is a big milestone and she has shown she is a confident woman. The marriage and babies thing is horrible. I imagine when she marries and with whom ever, she will start a family soon after.

Oh, well...why do you said she still seems young? I AM young and I have 35!

As for the kids things...Hummm. Hope she will have them, but people nowadays tends to marry more and more belated in life, and this is a bad thing. If this one was an isolated case I wouldn't say nothing, but it's almost the general rule.

Vanesa.

30th birthday comes so soon! In Royal Palace there is very interesting and beautiful exhibition about Victoria - I watched it so long that my friend became impatient. I think that Victoria have some years until marriage and having children but ofcourse Swedish people wait this very much. Anyway I hope Victoria will have beautiful birthday and she'll enjoy it!

In reply to Vanessa in particular:
I wish that everyone would seperate the occasion of CP Victoria turning 30 from the issue of her getting married with children... I know that media-wise this is a lost cause already.
But Queen Silvia first got married at age 32, turning 33 later that very same year and forever after, nobody has found any reason to complain either about the fact that she's older than The King or that she married him at that age, the marriage seems to be stable after more than 30 years and they obviously have three great children...
So I don't have a clue what would be 'bad' about women marrying in their early thirties. In a way, Queen Silvia was ahead of her time back in 1976, and nothing should be wrong with it now.
Let's just enjoy the upcoming celebrations and not criticize CP Victoria for not being married yet because it simply doesn't make much sense IMO.

I am admiring all, who can still face this 5-6 years of relationship with patience, understanding and current socio-cultural observations

IMO Silvia´s and Victoria´s situations aren´t comparable. If things wouldn´t have worked out after the 3.5 years of dating with Silvia, the king could have still hunted for a young woman (again) It was always the king´s decision and he also could have done a "Lennart Bernadotte"...then we would now be happy about cute little bebisar at the Swedish court

Back to the birthday...today Jenny Alexandersson (Journalist at Svensk Damtidning, the one who is following Victoria mostly) told in an interview on the radio, that she is thinking, that foreign Royals (she seems pretty sure about the Danish and Norwegian ones) would come as well.
Besides she has done an special extra edition of Svensk Damtidning for Victoria´s birthday.
Jenny is also hoping, that Daniel would appear in public at the bday (me hasn´t that as option. After about 4 false alarms even the slowest Lena has given hope up )
