They skimmed stones with Princess Estelle
It was Saturday, when Viktor Forsberg went with his ​​two daughters Alicia and Ellen and his parents to a beach in Sandvik on Öland. They met another family with children. But not just any family - it was the Crown Princess couple and Princess Estelle who were there and skimmed stones to the water.
- We climbed over a wall and went down on the rocky beach, and there stood Victoria, Estelle and Daniel. They had with them two Säpo guards and also some friend, I think, says Forsberg.
They stood together with the Crown Princess couple about 20 minutes and threw stones into the water - and Prince Daniel proved to be a real whiz at skimming stones. But the combination of stone throwing and the royals made a little worried:
- When children stand and throw stones one is terrified. They're ordinary people, and all parents are as anxious as the children will throw stones. But it went well, no one was hit.
- They told that they try to come here as soon as they get the opportunity. And you notice that they are accustomed to people talking to them, they are very nice.
But that there were two princesses had Alicia, 7 and Ella, 5, no idea. That they learned only afterwards.
- Afterwards I told them whom they had thrown stones with. The older girl became most angry that Estelle had no princess clothes. But they thought afterwards it was pretty great.

I agree, thank you LadyFinn for your hard work on reporting about the SRF.

This is a lovely little story, it's nice Victoria and Daniel children who they don't necessarily know play with Estelle. I remember reading once that Victoria and Daniel say hello to passers by who walk in the grounds Haga Palace, they sound like they're very open and friendly.
The anecdote about one of the little girl's disappointment at Estelle not wearing any "princess clothes" is so sweet. But I bet it's an awesome feeling for them to have played with a real little princess.

Expressen has an article about "Estelle at the summer's first visit to Öland". The video is a couple of months old, when Johan T Lindwall flew over Solliden.
It is an article of the family's visit to Solliden last weekend when Victoria and Daniel had a work event in Kalmar. Estelle was on a happy mood and was quickly out of the plane, and down at airport plate joked father Daniel with jumping both feet together, to the delight of the little princess.
As Expressen has previously told, beside their villa Skönviken in Solliden is Victoria's and Daniel's gift to Estelle: An outdoor swimming pool. Now the family could see that the pool construction is in it's final phase and only the final details remain before the it is completed, 4 x 10 meters.
According to Expressen, Estelle is going to spend most of the summer in Öland with her parents. Also Madeleine and her family plan to spend most of the summer there. The article also quotes the story about the family skimming stones in Sandvik.

One can expect Expressen and Johan T Lindwall to be inconsiderate and lacking integrity regarding the CP couples privacy but why re-post the video on this site. The summer home is the private get-away for the royal couple and they certainly deserve that space.

It is quite normal that the houses of celebrities (in this case royals) are being filmed from the air to the video and photos. Here in Finland it is done all the time, the photos of the homes of finnish celebrities taken from the air are published at magazines. It isn't so bad if they are not filming people at the yard of their homes, just the houses. I don't remember seen photos taken from the air of Solliden when the royal family is there. And on the other hand, if there would be no photos of Victoria's and Daniel's house, people would speculate how big palace they have built. Now people can see that is a totally normal house.

A young man met Daniel at a gym on Friday.

An article in Der Tagespiegel a week ago about Victoria and her family.
The article writes that the popularity of the monarchy in Sweden is steadily decreasing. But the royal family has a popular figure that outshines everything: Crown Princess Victoria. For years, the heir to the throne has been ranked as number one on the list of the most popular public figures in Sweden. The 37-year-old is considered to be charming, down to earth and efficient. Her impeccable image remains unchallenged, and since the birth of the now three year-old daughter Estelle, the enthusiasm has grown.
Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel are now considered the main standard-bearers for what the official site Sweden.se called "a modern royal family". Above all, they lift the venerable institution in a country that likes to see itself as the most advanced in the world and where one has little time for hierarchies and snobbery. Victoria's daughter attends a "normal" day care, and Victoria and Daniel kept both parental leave. With that they strengthened the modern image of the monarchy, they know their PR value for tourism and for the visibility of the country.
"I am very grateful that I can meet through my work so many interesting people, and it makes me proud to represent Sweden," the heir to the throne says today. Not only in well-intentioned press reports, but also in forums on the Internet she is praised by eye and ear witnesses at visits being interested in their questions and having obvious expertise.

This knowledge is hard work. Just like her father and her brother Victoria suffers from dyslexia. Even at school she because of dyslexia often felt "incredibly stupid", she told at an interview in 2007. Even today, Victoria likes reading with a ruler. She prefers acoustic information and is a specialist in memorization of facts.
The office work Victoria does like her parents at the Royal Palace, private hours with daughter and husband are spend at the Haga Palace outside Stockholm.
The future royal couple has passed their love for nature and sport to their daughter. Estelle is with her own board on the ski slopes and as a spectator identifies swedish Nordic skiing star Charlotte Kalla. The three year old is always good-humored at the public appearances and is considered new wonder of the royal family and does not bode well for the efforts of the Republican Association.

Singer, Eurovision Song Contest winner 1999 Charlotte Perrelli has a son at the same preschool as Estelle. Charlotte tells at an interview about Victoria:
- Yeah, ha ha, we meet in the mornings. She leaves and retrieves her child just like any other. So awesome. I have sung for and met the royal family many times over the years, so there is nothing strange in that way.

Daniel was 94th at the King Magazine's list of 100 mightiest people at the men's fashion. He was on the list also last year.

Hmm, not quit sure where to put this one, and perhaps it has already been mentioned somewhere here in the SRF thread, if so just delete this, mods.

The Danish tabloid writes that Estelle on several occasions have been wearing clothes by Marie-Chantal and that Marie-Chantal use pictures of Estelle on her Instagram account to to promote her design.

A Danish royalty expert, Lars Hovbakke Sørensen have been asked to comment and he considers it unwise by Marie-Chantal, (and V&D as well if they have given their permission) since royals should be careful about advertizing for commercial products, especially among friends.

The same way many foreign and swedish clothing labels tell at their social media that Estelle wore their clothes. Or that Victoria or some other royal wore their clothes. As soon as they wear a clothing of some brand, and the brand finds out (often from some blog or magazine story) that the royals wear their clothes, the brand puts it to their social media. I think that people are wise enough to see that the photos have been taken from the royals work/holiday events, and the royals are not promoting anything.

Someone uses without permission a photo of Victoria and Daniel to promote luxury apartments in Guangzhou, China. And they have even photoshopped the photo by putting some more jewellery to Victoria.

I've followed Marie Chantal on instagram for a while and I have to say it always make me uncomfortable to see her promoting Estelle wearing her designs. I can see why she would want to and, of course, its not as if other companies don't do the same with other royals but I think with MC its different because she is 'royal' herself and is a friend of V&D.
Also its hard for V&D to complain about other companies, e.g. the chinese building posted above, if they let a friend use pictures of Estelle.

Maybe Marie Chantal has permission? Senior royalty is a pretty closed and mostly related circle she might have dropped a line and Victoria was gone with it.And if Victoria gives her permission she evidently knows the situation better than us and does not see a problem, why should we?
