The performers of the concert told to the media:
Christer Lindarw, performing as queen Silvia
Congratulations on the success Christer, how was it to perform as the queen in front of the royal family?
- It was glorious, super fun and a little nervous.
What did the royal family say to you after the show?
- Everyone in the royal family was very happy afterwards. Thoy thought the number was great fun and thanked heartily.
Will you let the beard grow again?
- Yes. The beard may grow out again until we begin to perform at the Oscar Theater this fall.
Christer Lindarw offrade skägget – för Victorias skull!

Boris René sang for the Crown Princess: "It was a great honor"
Boris René performed his Melodifestival hit Her Kiss and I Want You Back. On the following day he can hardly put a word on how it felt.
- It's hard to explain the feelings when it comes to this, I don't know how to put it on. It was a great honor, really, he says.
He was asked to sing at the concert several months ago, but he didn't really understand it until he was there.
- I hardly realized it. Some things you can hardly dream about before they happen. It was a bit the same with Melodifestivalen.
Despite years of experience on stage, Boris René felt an extra nervousness before the evening.
- Yes, of course, it was exciting! To sing in front of the royal family like this, thankfully I had some experience from Melodifestivalen.
What was the best thing about the evening?
- Both to shake hands with the royal family, but also to be on stage together with the other artists. Prince Carl-Philip said it was a good feeling, it was fun to hear.

Marcus & Martinus put these to their social media
"Crown Princess Victoria got her birthday song "On This Day" from us yesterday, and we also gave her the lyrics for the song, wrapped in the Swedish + Norwegian colors!"

Swedish Gala Magazine tells, that Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg showed thumbs up to Victoria's stylist Tina Törnqvist, when she passed her at the Chapel, meaning, that Victoria's dress was wonderful.

Tarja Halonen, the former president of Finland, sent on Friday her congratulations to Victoria
- Congratulations to a well-educated, empathetic and knowledgeable heir to the throne of our western neighbour.
According to Halonen, she has a personalized relationship with Victoria.
- She has been training with us when we were such a good, trustworthy neighbor. At the end of my presidency happened all these babies and weddings, I know, that Estelle has eaten her breakfast on a Moomin plate.

Thanks LadyFinn for all the pictures. You really do a great job.

I love all the pictures. Vicoria seems to be such a likeable person and with all the cute children it's not difficult to have many nice pictures.

Thanks LadyFinn for the extensive coverage on this and related threads. I have the been able to follow the celebrations and coverage in Swedish media, but it is nice to have everything gathered at one place. I know it takes a lot of time to post everything and translate articles and such, so you deserve all credit possible for that!

Victoria's birthday celebration has always been the most important royal event of the year for me. And I especially love Victoria meeting the people in Solliden on her birthday. I would love to watch it for three hours. This year is was a big pity, that it was filmed so badly. On previous years for instance Expressen's live-TV has been good when Lindwall was in Solliden. Now they had experts babbling at a studio and didn't show the event very well. Of course this can be due to that this year there was so much to cover when the birthday was celebrated in Stockholm too.

The court put today to their Youtube a short, but good video of the celebrations

And about the celebration at the court website

Thank you for those who shared the photos from the event at Solliden; they were particularly beautiful. I love this photo of Victoria and Oscar - such a sweet moment.

A wonderful photo of Victoria and Daniel in Solliden
http://www.svenskdam.se/wp-content/u...ctoriadan-.jpg

A good video about when Victoria and family pass Logården at the cortège and wave to the guests.
https://www.facebook.com/79980631678...5290368572891/

During the celebration in Öland, the crown princess receives a lot of flower bouquets. And despite the huge amount, nothing is wasted. Perhaps the flower sea was even bigger this year when the Crown Princess filled 40.
But where do all the flowers end when the celebration is over and everyone has gone home? According to Margareta Thorgren, there is not a single bouquet thrown on the compost.
- These are nothing which are being thrown to garbage bags, but something that the Crown Princess is very grateful about and that adorn Solliden this week, she says.
During the day the flowers are collected and placed in large buckets prepared before. After that, the flowers are sorted by hand and the court florist puts together the flowers in different flower arrangements. All of these are then placed in different rooms at Solliden Palace.
- The bouquets are displayed in suitable places. Then the Crown Princess family has a private house further down and there is also a fantastic sea of flowers, says Thorgren.
Even all the drawings, small gifts and cards which Victoria gets, are sorted.
- The Crown Princess goes through everything, said Thorgren.

I hope Madeline and Chris were embarrassed enough by leonors behavior that they will begin to teach her that her desires are not more important than everyone else's. She is three and a half, not a toddler

Considering Madeleine's position in the Royal Family her children's behavior is terrible! They really need to learn some discipline!

I do think it was a bit bad of Madeleine and Chris not to keep the children in check during the photoshoot; particularly because there aren't any photos of Leonore and Nicolas actually with the rest of the family which suggests that the photographers weren't successful on that front. Leonore does seem to find it hard to keep still but even so, she still should have had her nanny on standby or Madeleine/Chris should have held her so she couldn't run of because she is setting an example on Nicolas, who is normally better behaved than his older sister. She won't be able to excuse running around in formal photoshoots when she's older!

She seems to have more of a "I wish they'd behave!" look on her face, as I remember when Leonore ran off in another photoshoot they had she made a comment to Silvia about how Leonore always runs off

Leonore and Nicholas were out of control in those pictures . Somebody must have told the photographer, "just take the pictures they are not going to be still". Oscar had his moments but he's one; but when things got anxious V & D got it under control. Estelle was probably better behaved because she knows her position, but she cuts up at times. I think Victoria and Daniel let their kids be kids but they don't let it go too far. Alexander was on the ground playing with gravel, but that's another one-year-old thing.

If it hasn't happened yet L & N are going be tagged as brats and M & C are going to be branded as bad parents in the press. But Madde/Chris need to get their children under control before they get older and really start "wildin' out". If the Princess Couple thought the press has been rough on them before...
