And hopefully, with her dad a former trainer, she will also be able to handle body issues.

You can see they have started early. Got her comfortable with events from very young, but limited. Keep her grounded and active with every day activities. Those dance lessons with all the other girls, grocery shopping with mom and dad and paying, pizza at the local shop. She gets a nice taste of the life her dad grew up in, especially with her grabdparents and cousins, but also royal life.

To be honest, I'm not so sure about that. Estelle is only 5, but she seems to take part in quite a lot of public events for her age. Compare her e.g. to Leonor (the Princess of Asturias) who is already 11, but seems to live a very secluded life away from the public, or even to Elisabeth of Belgium, who didn't really begin to make significant public appearances until she was about 13 or 14 . I don't know what to make of it.

Yes, from the hair because I thought immediately that it looked similar than at the Crafoord Prize and when I saved a photo to my computer, it showed the date 18th May.

From the documentary "Kronprinsessan Victoria 40 år" we can see, that Victoria and her siblings were also a lot at publicity when they were little kids. There are short videos filmed of the family in Solliden and at Christmas and king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia published a lot of photos of them. Her parents took Victoria to meet people at Solliden already on her first birthday. Of course the times were different and the photos weren't in one minute at hundreds of internet websites and social media sites. I think it is very good that Estelle and Oscar are taken at some public events already as young children. Then they get used to cameras clicking and flashes and the photographers calling their names, as like it was normal. It will be much easier for them then when they are older and start doing official work duties.

As I have said that they have got her comfortable with events. They choose things that are kid friendly, other rare family event. Or things like hockey players the other day as we know she is a huge fan. Makes her comfortable with the media in small amounts. Also lessens demand of the media for pictures. Estelle isn't stalked like some royal kids. Easier on a kid to ease them in then suddenly thrust her into events as a teen after hiding her. Estelle will have a much easier time then Leonor, or the Cambridge kids.

The Belgian kids often attend events with their parents. Like the Queen Elizabeth music. Elizabeth goes to the ballet. She has in fact been seen less lately, either busy Ruth school or not into hanging out with mom and dad.

I have now watched the second part of the documentary for the second time from TV4 Play. Some things about it:
Ebba asks how Victoria copes with the balance in her life, being a mother of small children? Victoria says that she has it quite the same as most people. And it is very difficult, especially because she feels so strongly about her role and tasks, she has very strong conscientiousness. And she wants to have so much in every level.
Victoria speaks passionately and with a lot of knowledge about the sustainability of the oceans. Victoria says that you see the resources of the earth as finite. They are not infinite, not even the oceans. Unfortunately we haven't had this approach previously. Things get much clearer if we look a forest. Then we see when the trees are logged, how the forest recovers and grows. What happens with the seas, it is easy to ignore it, because we don't see what happens below the surface, and we must change our point of view.
The most fun in her job as the UN Advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals is that it is so important. And in her role, she can come out and speak about it both in Sweden and abroad. And it feels very stimulating and it is a great honor for her to do that.
The documentary shows Victoria giving a speech at a seminar in Tokyo. Ebba asks how Victoria prepares to these events. Victoria says that of course she tries to read, but also to find experiences, because that is what she ultimately wants to tell. She gets a little help to put everything in her speech together, she says she is not very good in it (because of her dyslexia I think). But she wants to speak what she really knows and what are her own words.

What other people say about Victoria at the documentary
- Johan Rockström, director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre and a professor of environmental science at Stockholm University. He has been with Victoria at the dialogues with the big fishing companies, and is also at the Board of EAT Foundation, which organizes EAT Stockholm Food Forum: "Japan is a country with very well developed economy, and has big challenges with sustainability in consumption, energy and management of the ocean. We need big changes for the most significant people, the ceos of the world's biggest fishing companies. If we invite them, they may not come. But when the crown princess invites them, they come. She has an incredible credibility and power to invite people to a discussion. The crown princess is so skilled and articulates so well when it is about fishing, oceans and sustainability. She also conveys something which is quite unique. She doesn't come from the world of science, but she has an amazing credibility and people listen to her. And she speaks from her heart, as a fellow human. That has helped us enormously, also with these dialogues with the ceos. A young person who with so strong emotional way based on her knowledge has a convincing way to discuss about sustainability, the oceans and the future of the mankind. At these issues, in which the crown princess has not only the privilege, but also the responsibility for Sweden. That Sweden has a future monarch, who is so competent".
- Ebba Busch Thor, leader of the Christian Democrats party: "If you look at Hollywood and the fairytales you have grown with, the image of a princess is very superficial. And the crown princess totally overthrows that image. The crown princess opens doors which in some cases are totally closed for everyone else. And that is something people forget, when they discuss about the role of the monarchy in Sweden. In some contexts monarchy is covered only by speaking about clothes. But the monarchy is so much more and in some contexts it can be totally crucial in taking things further. That people meet, and that there will be a change."
- Fredrik Reinfeldt, the prime minister in 2006–14: "The crown princess follows the time. When she attends an event, she makes notes and questions. That has given her a wide knowledge about Sweden and the whole world. Those who meet her, are impressed. She is extremely professional at her task which many misinterpret as easier as it really is. It demands a lot to meet people, act in various environments. It is demanding, especially for a woman, to be always correctly dressed. To be always evaluated, to find the right words. You can see when crown princess Victoria gives a speech that she has an enormous timing. That is something which doesn't come only with training, but it requires talent. It requires that you are prepared and that you have the ability to concentrate. The vast majority wouldn't come close to what she does. Many kings and queens are late in their years. Here comes a crown princess who is in the middle of her life. Of course everyone asks what she wants and gives her space. It contributes attention which would not be gotten without her. The monarchy we have created is a symbol for Sweden, doesn't have political power and they shouldn't speak about urgent everyday issues. But we haven't asked them to be invisible. We haven't locked them to the Palace and said that they shouldn't meet people. The idea is that they should find the right balance at their mission. It is much more difficult than what the people think. And the crown princess has lived with this whole her life. But she shows that she understands where her limits are."
- Jan Eliasson, UN Deputy Secretary-General 2012-16, now Chairman of the Governing Board of Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. Ebba asks: What do you think people don't know about royals? Eliasson says that even royals are looking for a toilet just like the others. And if it is 46 degrees heat it is so also for the royals. And if you are in front of starving children, everyone gets tears to their eyes, also the royals. Those are situations you would want everyone to see. And to see also how hard their work is. Eliasson says: "When I visit the crown princess at Haga, the kids are coming out of the corner and keep her occupied. And that's the life for all of us, to have the balance with your personal and professional life. It must be a big challenge for her. The crown princess has a good instinct. At these times when you are worried about what happens, it is good that there is someone who contributes to unite our land, but also has knowledge about the world outside. And also to give hope. We need hope and to see possibilities in today's world when there is so much anxiety right now. And when you have this position you can use it to instill courage and hope. We had the terror attack in Stockholm and that the crown princess came there and showed solidarity to those who were involved, gives of course comfort but is also a reminder that the nation should keep it together".

Ebba Kleberg von Sydow tells at her blog about the day at the Haga Palace, when she interviewed Victoria to the documentary.
"Puh, what day it was! Started at the TV4 staff makeup in the morning and finished at home at six o'clock with a chicken salad in plastic jar that I had not been able to open all day. That day, on a cup of morning coffee. Help! Very, very fun day but also a lovely misty day, in the middle of the baby bubble where I was not directly my sharpest I felt like that. I definitely did not deliver my super best at work that day, which obviously was not top. But then, life came in the way - and life in the shape of a baby is still very nice. I think."

Ebba had her five-week old son Ernst with her at Haga Palace and her friend Eva took care of Ernst while Ebba interviewed Victoria. At the photo they had been waiting for a taxi to arrive to take them home.

Ebba Kleberg von Sydow felt like she was not directly at her sharpest. There must have been something in the air because it looks like Victoria was a little confused as to where the interview was conducted and Ebba had to help her a little (Victoria mixed up a little and said "Stockholms Slott" but they were in fact in Haga Palace) and Victoria couldn't stop laughing at her mistake.

As it has been told previously, Claes Elfsberg has interviewed Victoria to the program SVT broadcasts on her 40th birthday.

Expressen has today Elfsberg's deep interview, where he is asked also about his interview with Victoria.
What will we get to know in your interview with the Crown Princess?
- I think I get closer to her, she talks about her own anxiety. I have been served toy pancake by Estelle. Prince Daniel cries in front of the camera when he should explain how great his wife is. So I think it will be interesting for people to watch. We all others around think that the crown princess seems absolutely perfect, but she herself finds errors and is nervous. Her husband says she should be kinder to herself.
When I read Alice Bah Kuhnke's interview book "Victoria, Victoria" (2002) I was struck by the loneliness the Crown Princess seemed to have, not least during the period when she distanced herself from all friends because she did not know who she could trust?
- I had the same impression when I interviewed her dad a few years ago. In that role, one gets very lonely. Not because I hang out in the court circles, but it is clear how scheming and creepy it is in the vicinity of royals to get their favor and it probably leads to that loneliness.

The fotos that have been released for Victorias birthday are very nice and appropriate. I think they doing it right regarding Estelle, having her getting used to the public pressure early on. I dont think they overexpose her. Victoria will have thought about this carefully, since she lived a public childhood and developed anorexia as a young woman because of public pressure. If she saw fault in this, she would have done it differently.

Estelle will lead a public life and there is no way around this. I find it difficult to believe that it is better to have your child live a secluded life with a handful of choreographed outings during the year a la Leonor of Spain and then, when with the 18th birthday the latest, public life is there in full glare and over-the-top interest because so far, Spanish people have to idea who their heiress to the throne is, at the moment the offical photo on the casa real website is five years old (!!!) shows a little girl not the teen she actually is.

Ölandsmagazinet writes at their summer issue about Victoria's birthday.
Years go by, it feels it wasn't so long ago when we got first photos of her birthday in Solliden.
The article tells about this year's celebration in Stockholm and that the celebration in Solliden is very popular because the crown princess with great enthusiam welcomes the congratulations, flowers and hugs and poses for selfies. She cares about her fans and doesn't want anyone to remain disappointed. During the last years the celebration has got even more funny because princess Estelle has made her show and this year we will probably see prince Oscar too. What crown princess Victoria wishes herself as a present, we don't know, but donations to Crown Princess Victoria's Fund are always welcomed.

APA Picturedesk has published photos, which photographer Jonas Ekströmer from TT Nyhetsbyrån took of Victoria on 5th June at Haga Palace to the interview Victoria gave to TT due to her 40th birthday. I'm sure that we get bigger versions of these photos when the interview is published.
APA PictureDesk

According to SVT's schedule, they broadcast on 14th July at SVT1 at 11.25-13.30. This will be seen at SVT play too.
Crown Princess Victoria turns 40 and today's celebration begins at the Royal Palace with invited guests. At 12.00 pm, the salute from Skeppsholmen takes place and at 13.00 the Crown Princess family rides at a cortège through Stockholm. Mark Levengood is the program leader and follows the celebration among spectators and guests, and makes backlashes on Victorias life.
And at 21.00-22.30 SVT1 and SVT play show the concert "Grattis Kronprinsessan!"
In the evening, we go to Öland where the celebrations are organized for the 39th year in a row, with a tribute at Borgholm's sports arena. Kalle Moraeus is the program leader and the performers are Malena Ernman, Magnus Uggla, Jill Johnson, Norwegian twins Marcus & Martinus, Boris René and Christer Lindarw.
Grattis kronprinsessan! _ SVT.se

And in the evening before the concert, at 20.00-21.00, SVT1 broadcasts the interview Claes Elfsberg has made with Victoria "Hennes vänliga majestät" (Her friedly Majesty).
Crown Princess Victoria is portrayed before her 40th birthday. Claes Elfsberg interviews her at Haga Palace and talks about the dublication of work and performance anxiety, about vulnerability and privileges. Can you be "normal" as crown princess? We will look into the playhouse of the Haga princesses with Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar. Prince Daniel tells lovingly about his wife, the Crown Princess of Sweden.
The interview will be seen at SVT play too.

And just like I guessed, we get to see Jonas Ekströmer's photos for TT. The interview TT made about Victoria due to her 40th birthday has now been published.

Expressen about the interview:
The Crown Princess: Mixed feelings for 40
She welcomes us at Haga Palace under a splendid summer sky. The Crown Princess is dressed in dark blue apparel, with her hair in a tight bun and a curious smile on her lips. She describes herself as "a little tired".
- It is clear that there is a lot to be done with. But that's what makes it exciting and charming too, says Crown Princess Victoria.
The interview is made on the glass veranda facing the private part of the garden behind the Palace. A large trampoline is located next to the gravel walk and in the sandbox near the playhouse, where the Crown Princess's aunts Haga Princesses played as children, there are colorful plastic toys.
It is a special feeling that the family is back at Haga, she says.
- I have never had the opportunity to meet my grandparents, so come here to Haga, which I know meant a lot to them and their children, it feels incredibly special. It feels a bit like getting them closer. An attempt to get to know them maybe.
Today she has her own long-awaited family. Five years ago the dream about to become mom came true when Princess Estelle was born. Last year, the family was expanded with a little brother, Prince Oscar.
To unite the mission as crown princess to being a mother for small children at the same isn't easy.
- There is a lot to be done with in a day and I really want to be an available mom, present and a mom who is a good role model too. And of course it should be combined with a professional role and it is not always that easy.
Even though the Crown Princess has a lot of help, she can also feel sad about what she misses,.
- You miss a lot of nice moments with the kids. I belong to those who are careful to document the children's upbringing. I'm really trying to actively observe and write down small things that happen.
TT: How would the Crown Princess describe Prince Oscar and Princess Estelle?
- Oscar is very calm. Highly observant. A little reserved but fearless. Social and loves his big sister. Estelle is so full of life. Loves people, secure, social, lovely humor, joking. And hugely caring. I have no boring children!, she says gladly.
An event that went straight into many hearts was when the Crown Princess, deeply moved, the day after the terror attack on Drottninggatan, came to the place to honor the victims.
- I felt a huge sadness in that it had also hit Stockholm and the open and accessible society we want. It was an attempt to understand what it was that hit us. But also, of course, to show my truly sincere involvement in the sorrow that so many people in the place felt, she says.
The Crown Princess learned early to live with the presence of photographers. But growing up in the spotlight also created performance anxiety. About her anorexia, she says now:
- It was a tough period. A fairly distraught period, not quite unusual for when you are in that age. I'm grateful that I got help, because it's not so easy to get rid of such a situation yourself, when you feel very bad and have a lot of anxiety.
Today she has learned how to handle high demands and difficult emotions. She finds peace and harmony in nature.
- I'm not an indoor person, I feel much better when I'm outdoors. For me it means very much to come out, have a walk or run or just stay out, with the kids or so.
Even though the Crown Princess today focuses on her duties as just Crown Princess, she is also preparing to take over the throne one day.
- My whole life is about to serve Sweden. It may sound pretentious to say that today. But that's really how I feel. I see my parents in their tireless work and with what joy they do, with an ever-ending interest. I hope I can feel the same joy they do when I am at their age.
TT: How are thoughts about 40?
- Well, the time is going too fast. I don't feel at all like 40. But Princess Lilian always said that's how you feel yourself that counts. In this case, it's positive, because I do not feel like 40.
What she desires most of all? A long summer.
- I'm very ready for summer holidays right now, says Crown Princess Victoria.

German Die Aktuelle has also got Victoria's interview due to her 40th birthday on the same day as TT. The interview has mostly the same things than at TT's interview.
Of her children Victoria says: "My children are the greatest gift for me."
About working together with her husband Victoria says: "I find it wonderful to be able to share many experiences and impressions with someone you love and with whom you live together. It's a very intense cohabiting though. But we are good at supporting each other. We complement each other in our thinking and actions. At the same time, we are thinking about things quite differently, but I believe that is an important part of our strength".
About keeping the Love alive Victoria says: "I believe that you have to always be aware of your love and must actively work on it. It can happen very fast that the everyday life simply goes on and you somehow have no time for each other. If you are aware of this danger and remain alert, you already have a good starting position".
