Me too, I am anxious to miss news about Victoria going in labours and birth of second child. It will happen soon, very soon.

Daniel's page at the website of the royal court has been changed. He isn't anymore Olof Daniel Westling Bernadotte there like some time ago. He is just Olof Daniel, prince of Sweden.

When Daniel was in Ockelbo on Tuesday, Expressen's Johan T Lindwall went to Pizzeria Atalante to taste the pizzas Victoria special and Daniel special. The pizzeria has had them on their list for many years already.
Victoria Special contains pork, onions, mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh garlic and béarnaise sauce.
Daniel Special has fillet of beef, mushrooms, mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh garlic and béarnaise sauce.
- The one that we sell absolute most is Daniel Special. Why? I think it's the fillet of beef which determines. It simply tastes better, says Idris Keles.
If the pizzas are named after Prince Daniel and Crown Princess Victoria because they are their favorite pizzas is a secret amongst the pizza bakers.
But it is clear that they often order food from the pizzeria, but it is not they who enter the pizzeria:
- No, their guards tend to be here and get food. They also tend to take the kebab rolls, says Idris Keles.
However, Estelle then? Relax, it's apparently going on:
- We are considering such a pizza and what should be in it, says Idris Keles.

The Crown Princess Couple are so popular that they have food named after them? I figure the Daniel pizza would sell more because he's the local boy that made good. If they going to do an Estelle pizza, will they make one for the new baby (or babies)?

Daniel met obviously representatives of Malmö FF Football Club on Friday, because he was photographed with their jersey.

I think it's great that
a) they take Estelle with them on both formal and informal occasions. She's no stranger to a supermarket or taking the subway, just like other kids.
b) they can do this without people taking photos of them

8 Things Prince Daniel has said which show why we love him.
1. Because of his words after the little prince came to the world: "You women are a primal force"
2. For his amazing wedding speech: "This young man was perhaps not a frog in the beginning of the fairytale ..., but he was certainly not a prince".
3. For his emotional storm at Estelle's birth. "My feelings are all over the place"
4. For his views on fatherhood: "I see it as a matter of course to be home as a dad"
5. For his humility: "I want to earn this trust and work hard"
6. For his thoughts on child and adolescent health: "What would happen if we would test to have sports at the school every day?"
7. Because he is a romantic: "The greatest of all is love"
8. For his sensible approach to Estelle's use of computers: "You have to have some limits, we know that one must exercise a little to feel good".

A new foundation Stiftelsen Hållbara Hav (The Sustainable Seas Foundation) was established on 16th December 2015 with the focus on saving the Baltic Sea. The concrete work of the Foundation is done via Initiativet Hållvara Hav (The Sustainable Seas Initiative).
Crown princess Victoria has been the patron of the Sustainable Seas Initiative and attended at it's seminars and has been interviewed in SVT about saving the Baltic Sea. She will continue as patron.
"The future of the Baltic Sea is threatened. It is therefore important to be able to contribute to sustainable seas", says Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria, who is a frequent and committed guest in connection with the Sustainable Seas activities.
The creation of the Sustainable Seas Foundation is a deepened and intensified commitment to Sustainable Seas Initiative that has over five years worked with communication regarding how the Baltic Sea ecological status can be restored and improved.

Gossip site Hänt's Häntbloggen has a photo of Daniel and Estelle on Thursday afternoon having a pizza at Pizzeria Ciao Ciao Grande in Östermalm. Everything looked very relaxed out and it looked like Estelle had a friend with her. Perhaps from her preschool in Djursholm.
Ciao Ciao Grande is a pizzeria in a chain of restaurants located in various locations in Stockholm. They have some fancy pizzas, they are a bit more expensive but with good ingredients and in some places they have real wood burning stove. But not on this one. It is located on Artillerigatan, just next door to the grand Hedvig Eleonora Church at Östermalmstorg and one block from the Royal Mews where Madeleine and Chris live when they are in Stockholm.

Good to see Daniel spending some quality time with Estelle now when they have a new baby in the family.

A column published on 3rd March at many finnish newspapers by Minna Kurki, a foreign news journalist in Lännen Media.

Column: Victoria and Daniel are the best thing that has happened to equality
Kurki writes that when people talked about Victoria's and Daniel's baby, she as a devoted republican did her best to stomp the news to the ground. So what if somewhere outside the borders of Finland gave birth to someone? She used all the standard arguments generally used against the monarchy: the fundamental injustice of inheritance, taxpayers' money, superficial babble....
A fellow pointed out that there are also happy news that unite people. Facebook was with boiling name speculations. Links were distributed, good luck was wished and stories were written. Kurki was retching inside her head. But Kurki was stopped by a phrase from a colleague on Facebook: "Victoria and Daniel are my ideal couple of equality", a colleague started the debate on gender equality and explained: "Victoria takes care of the hard work, childbearing, and is responsible for the crown in the future. Daniel informs about the baby, when the wife takes care of the baby and family for a moment. All active, independent operators who help each other."
Kurki admits that her colleague is right. Victoria and Daniel are the best thing that has happened to equality in recent years.
Of course Victoria and Daniel don't struggle with everyday problems that ordinary people face in ordinary work, family or social life. They are a well-balanced duo, which shares the work so that it in each case makes sense. They're flexible. They support each other. They have a common project.
At an early stage they were in the old fashioned way of speaking an odd duo: royal and a "ordinary" human being, fitness entrepreneur. When the relationship progressed, Daniel had to give up (or wanted to give up) of his gym career because of his royal career - and Victoria's career. Kurki says that she doesn't know what Daniel thinks, but at the photos he looks quite pleased.
Kurki writes that in general, stereotypes about equality in a partnership are changing. The man speaks, kisses, does the laundry and plays with the children, as women do. At many finnish homes the men cook nowadays, not the women. And men are on a paternity leave when their wives go back to work.
The essential thing of Victoria's and Daniel's doctrine is probably this: things may and can be decided how they want to, regardless of gender. Anyone can be what one wants, as long as both parties are satisfied. Things can be agreed according to the situation. Both can also receive it all: career, family and even free time. Kurki hopes that the same way of thinking would come to Finland, to it's society, employment and legislation. Learn from the monarchy, Finland.

I think this is a great article, which summarized in a very good way what this couple represent, at least on public diplay. Daniel seems very at ease in his role of prince consort, and that it is not a something obvious or granted, since he is the first one of the european countries to cover such a position. It is true that times are changing, but it still is not easy to find a man willing to be in the shadow on his spouse. Daniel himself told that he has "self-esteem enough to walk behing my wife", so I think this couple is very much a balance done and you could tell by their functional plublic roles that they live in a harmoniously equality within their daily routine.

Daniel is the patron of MOD - Mer Organdonation (More Organ donation) since 2014.
Martha Ehlin, 38, the co-founder of MOD died last Saturday.
Martha was diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and after several transplant operations with five new organs she defeated cancer. She won five gold medals at The World Transplant Games, a world championship for the transplant athletes, in Gothenburg in 2011.
Martha founded the organization MOD along with Peter Carstedt. MOD's ambition is to start a movement around organ donation issue in Sweden by increasing knowledge and understanding about organ donation so that more people in Sweden say yes to donating.
Daniel delivered the award "Årets Kämpe" (The Fighter of the Year) to Martha at Svenska Hjältar (Swedish Heroes) -gala in December 2013.

Daniel met Martha Ehlin and Peter Carstedt at the Royal Palace in November 2014.
Prins Daniel i möte med MOD - Sveriges Kungahus

In November 2014 Martha and MOD and Daniel were both very involved in TV4's campaign for more organdonations. Martha did a great job to get people donate more organs. She was interviewed in radio, TV, newspapers and magazines and held lectures all over Sweden.

But in the end the transplants did not help. The disease came back.
MOD - Mer organdonation at their website:
"Martha died, calmly and quietly in the circle of her relatives on Saturday 19 March. Martha was transplanted 7 years ago because of a tumor disease. A disease that now came back and demanded a new operation. The operation failed to save her life. Our thoughts go first and foremost to the family while we try to understand what is incomprehensible and accept what is unacceptable. It is inconceivable to us that Martha is no longer with us."
Hem - MOD
