I wouldn't be surprised if Carl Philip and Sofia also attends. I think that CP will drive the STCC-race a couple of days earlier (10'th or 11'th), so they should be back in Sweden by then. It's still a smart move to not list them, I think.

According to the updated website of the Solliden Palace, Victoria's birthday celebration starts at 14.00.
Aktuellt _ Sollidens Slott

Press release from the court website
The Crown Princess' birthday - Sveriges Kungahus

On 13th July Isaberg Förlag releases a homage book to Kay Wiestål, the man, who invented the idea that Victoria's birthday should be a big celebration in Öland and has organized all Victoriadagen -concerts. The book is called "Kay & Kronprinsessan" (Kay & The Crown Princess) and it is written by Christina Wendel.
The book is also a journey of a lifetime. Kay Wiestål tells about his life as a professional football player in the United States, years as a consultant for Alpine National Team and Skate, Handball and Wrestling Federations, his international clients, love and friends and his life crises: his heart has stopped three times.
Many Victoria Scholarship winners, artists at Victoriadagen-concert, swedish Hollywood stars, sport profiles and close friends tell about Kay Wiestål.
The book has also a lot of unique photos of the royal family, there is about 47 pages about "Kay & The Royal Family" and "Kay & The Crown Princess". And a discussion between Kay Wiestål and the king. The king has the last word.
Isaberg Förlag Ny bok: Kay & Kronprinsessan
Translation

Some pages from the book
http://www.isaberg.nu/prod_img/Smakprov_lowres.pdf

Kay Wiestål tells in the book:
The King has always been so incredibly kind to Öland. He thinks about the environment and yes, everything! Business and tourism in the island, not the least.
The Royal Family always sends out so nice invitations to Victoria Scholarship winners. They invite all for lunch at Solliden every five years when the grantees have anniversary. They are always just as pleasant and happy events.
I have been at the Palace in Stockholm at various meetings and I am always positively received. I never say "Du" to the king or queen. It is not difficult, it is just nice, I think. But I say always "Hej" (Hello), when we greet, not "Good day" or something like that. Whatever the case, we have the royal family here in Sweden that people look up to and follow in their fine work to represent and be examples for our country. Childhood is an example of the Queen's strong commitment as well as the Victoria Fund operated by Crown Princess Victoria and Radiohjälpen. And think of all companies worldwide that are visited by the King and queen. They are doing unbeliavably good work and are just fantastic!

Expressen "reveals" that Victoria and Daniel are planning to take Estelle to the Victoriadagen (Victoria Day) concert. Everything depends on Estelle's day's mood and the decision will be made a few hours before. It would be for the first time and Estelle would beat her own mother greatly in attending the Victoria Day. The King and Queen Silvia let Crown Princess Victoria to make her debut on the Victoria Day concert first on 1984, when Victoria was seven years old.
Expressen also writes that SVT still hopes that Måns Zelmerlöw, the Eurovision Song Contest winner, could perform at the concert. It has been a tradition during the last years that the ESC winner performs at the concert. Zelmerlöw sang at the concert last year.
Expressen also claims to know that according to tradition Daniel and Estelle wake Victoria with strawberry cake and a song and that Victoria is very keen that the cake has Öland strawberries picked from their own garden plot included at Solliden.

It would be lovely if Estelle would be at the concert. However, the concert lasts about 1,5 hours, a rather long time for a small child like Estelle. Of course, her nanny could take her away during the concert if she gets tired. We will see on Tuesday if Expressen is just speculating.

Oh it would be great if Estelle could make it to the concert! But I still think she is too young to attend such a long performance and may be also stressful for her! Thank you for you constant tidbits LadyFinn!

Sydsvenskan writes that the Victoria Day - also called Öland's National Day - draws a lot of people, and the hotel rooms are properly booked. The Crown Princess is popular and the tradition attracts even the press. Around 50 media have accredited themselves, nearly half of them are from abroad, tells Margareta Thorgren from the court.
- The countries that stand out most are first and foremost Germany, but also the Netherlands and the UK.
Julia Melchior from German TV ZDF explains the German fascination for the Swedish royal family with Queen Silvia's German roots. Now they are also interested in the crown princess.
- Germans have grown up with Victoria and have followed her path. She is Europe's only female heir to the throne and we see her as a true pioneer. The Germans like to see this. The celebration is a positive event that also fits well with our image of Sweden and the Swedish countryside.
Even in Finland Victoria is very popular, according Annika Hällsten, the royal reporter in Hufvudstadsbladet.
- The Finns are extremely fond of Victoria and the media closely follows up with what she does.
Danish BT's royal reporter Lotte Scharff:
- The Danish and Swedish royal family are related. In addition, the Swedish Crown Princess couple and Danish Crown Prince couple are close friends. Victoria is so down to earth and popular. She speaks with the people, just as Crown Prince Frederik does.

Many people travel to Öland for Crown Princess Victoria's birthday, and thousands are expected to participate in the celebrations outdoors. According to Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, the sun may appear. Despite this, one should take with both jacket and umbrella.
- It will be partly cloudy with some sun, but there may be some showers, too, says Emelie Karlsson, meteorologist at SMHI.
The temperature is expected to be around 18 degrees, but the sun will be seen during the day. At least occasionally, promises Emelie Karlsson.

Johan T Lindwall writes in Expressen about the book "Kay & The Crown Princess", which was released yesterday.
"Relaxed photos of the royals in the new book"
Th book shows Princess Madeleine, Prince Carl Philip and Crown Princess Victoria for the first time at one of the family's most private homes along with some of the country's biggest sports stars - Peter Forsberg, Ingemar Stenmark and Tomas Brolin.
- It is a very personal book. Fun to be able to show the family members in a context that is relaxed and not public, says the writer Christina Wendel.
The book has photos of royal family members privately - that we have never before seen. When the Victoria Day celebrated it's 25th anniversary in 2004 were all scholarship winners for 25 years in Borgholm and then the king and queen surprised everyone sharply with a private lunch. At the book we see the photos from within the private party at Solliden Palace and the images reveal that it was in the king's private boathouse that he and the rest of the family met the stars.
The king built the boathouse inside the Solliden Palace area in 1986 and in the summer it is the royal family's haven and paradise. It is here they recover and here they tend to have their private lunches with guests and where the king has every year his now famous crayfish party.
Photos from inside the boathouse have not been shown before, but in the upcoming book on Kay Wiestål we see all three royal children in the boathouse with everyone from Peter Forsberg to Ingemar Stenmark.
- There is no way few surreptitiously taken pictures, but of course there are photos in a private context. A relaxed context, I would like to say, says Christina Wendel.

It has been raining in the morning. People arrived as soon as the gates were opened. Anita Åstrand and her daughter Linda Karhionen from Finland came at ten o'clock outside the gates to get good places. Anita's daughter had given tickets to Victoriadagen-concert last year as present to Anita's 70th birthday. Now Anita hopes that she can greet Victoria and meet Estelle, they have flowers for Victoria and Moomin book for Estelle.
