As a Kidney Transplant Recipient, I am so very sad to hear we lost someone who was such an advocate and Champion for Organ Donation Awareness in Sweden. May her Legacy live on and grow. My Condolences to her Friends and Family. :(

One small thing Lady Finn...The World Transplant Games is closer to the Olympic Games for Transplant Recipients, than World Championships. Many Countries have their own Transplant Sports Organizations and hold National Championships in many Sports. Also many Sports now have Transplant World Championships. Events which are also qualifiers for the World Games during the year before they're held/that year they're held. Just like now, when many major events across the board both National and International, will be Qualifying Events for Rio later this year.

Just wanted to mention that. :)

During the years Victoria has been the inspiration for many artists and painters. A lot of paintings and art have been made of her. Here is some of them, as far as I know, not any of them have been commissioned.

Khalaf Kadhum in 2011, he had made the painting as a gift and thank you because how he and his countrymen had been taken care of in Sweden after coming there four years earlier as a refugee from Irak.

Daniel spoke in June 2015 at the Brilliant Minds Conference at the Symposium Stockholm.
The Symposium has published a magazine (in english), there is Daniel's interview at pages 14-15, and Daniel's "Brilliant thoughts" at page 57:

The whimsical notion of the first with Estelle running and Victoria with and easel painting a Daniel as a frog made me smile.

The caricature of Daniel proposing to Victoria just plain cracked me up. It really caught the essence of the moment (not to mention a fond remembrance of Daniel's hair pre-prince school. )

Someone has seen Daniel and Estelle at Kungsberget on Monday (no photos):
"That I was yesterday able to meet and talk with Prince Daniel and Princess Estelle at Kungsberget!"
https://twitter.com/c_eriksson3/stat...17405881925632

I guess she means the ski resort Kungsberget, less than 30 minutes from Ockelbo and a little over two hours from Stockholm.

Someone saw Victoria, Daniel, and the kids shopping on Friday. According to the comments many thought it was an April joke but the poster kept saying it would have been a good one but it was true. (No photos)

Like father, like daughter!
Princess Estelle has started to play golf! And counts in English. Prince Oscar has already been traveling. This weekend Sweden's youngest prince was exactly one month old and celebrated with the family by going to their summer paradise on Öland.
In Friday night Victoria and Estelle were seen shopping at the local ICA store in Borgholm. They bought carrots, and took the opportunity to practice counting in English with each carrot that they put to cart. Estelle is said to have managed it all with flying colors. She drilled notoriously earlier in English by one of her nannies, who is English speaking.

On Saturday it was time for Estelle's next recreational activity: Golf!
Just before lunch, the whole family came accompanied by three bodyguards to Ekerum Resort, which is one of Sweden's largest golf facilities.
Little prince Oscar was sleeping safely in his Brio pram. When Victoria, Daniel and Estelle ate lunch, a buffet with two main dishes, venison and cod, with accompanying sauce and potatoes, rested Oscar in the pram beside the table. When the other people would walk past the family table Victoria politely moved the pram with the little prince, says an informant.
After lunch it was time for Estelle to try out her golf skills. Together with her father, she went down to driving range at Ekerum to train tee off. And even short game!
While Daniel took the opportunity to practice his swing. After a while they took a little break, but then continued to hit balls. A player who saw Estelle says he is impressed by her skills.
Already on Sunday, Estelle and Daniel were back for a new round of training.
Margareta Thorgen didn't want to comment on the family's weekend on Öland.

This person tells on Facebook that she ran into them at the supermarket and would have asked for a photo if they did not have a cold. Apparently the whole family was shopping together and Victoria carried Oscar on her chest.

Here is the celebrity Swedish people prefer to dine with!
Many Swedes dream about meeting a celebrity, and even better, to have dinner with a famous person. But the question is which celebrity the swedish people, both women and men, prefer? A new survey was conducted by YouGov on behalf of the foodstuff company Nestlé.

Crown princess Victoria is the first at the survey, 24 % of the votes.
Tina Nordström, celebrity chef and television personality, came second with 17 %. Hans Rosling, medical doctor, academic, statistician and public speaker came third with 15 %. Surprisingly footballer Zlatan came only fourth with 11 %. UN's Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson, actor Mikael Persbrandt, artist Björn Skifs och singer Lena Philipsson are on fifth place with 8 % each.

When the answers of men and women are separated, Victoria came second:
What famous woman swedish men want to have dinner with?
1. Tina Nordström 18 %
2. Crown Princess Victoria 15 %
3. Lena Philipsson 10 %
4. Noomi Rapace (actress) / Sara Larsson (singer) 8 % both
5. Carola Häggkvist (singer) 7 %

The swedish woman prefer to dine with professor Hans Rosling, he came first. Eurovision Song Contest winner Måns Zelmerlöw is second at the women's answers.

How absolutely wonderful. I'm torn, much as I would have adored seeing a photo of the family out and about, it really tickles me pink that ordinary people respect their family private time and don't accost them or post photos.

There are both good and bad things I can say about my country. The fact that people in general allows the royal family to do everyday things without taking pictures of them - that's one of the really great things. And I'm quite sure that it has a lot to do with the fact that most people respect and admire Victoria and her family, even though they might not be royalists.

It would be great if Victoria and Daniel would publish a photo of Estelle playing golf, taken by Kate Gabor.
It is great that Victoria and Daniel can be in Öland (and elsewhere) in Sweden without that people take photos. Or maybe some have taken photos but not put them into internet.
I'm ok with photos taken from the royals on their private time by private people, if the royals have been asked and they pose at the photos and give permission to put the photos into internet. But I don't like about the photos which have been taken "secretly" of the royals on their private time and put into social media or sold to the magazines. That is why I don't post here some photos I have seen in the internet, taken of Estelle alone or with her parents, clearly secretly. And the paparazzis are their own thing.

Victoria is on magazine Mama's list of 33 most powerful mothers in Sweden. Mama has listed 33 most powerful mothers, in no particular order.

Heir to the Throne: HRH Crown Princess Victoria, 38
The most easily loved monarch ever has no formal political power - but what an influence! We all want to know what she does, says and wears. And just as interested (if not more), we are of Princess Estelle, 4 and newcomer Oscar.

Svensk Damtidning writes that 27th May, Oscar's christening day, is very special to his father, prince Daniel.
Daniel received his kidney transplant seven years ago, on 27th May.

The article has also links to two great videos:
Daniel speaking about his transplant in December 2013 at Haga Palace
Daniel's fantastic speech at the Swedish Transplantation Society's anniversary celebrations 23rd October 2014.

Woah, I thought that Daniel had received his transplant sometimes around september and not in May. Well, I hope that's not the reason why they chose that date for the christening. It would be a bit odd to associate a delicate surgery with the christening of a baby, but again, maybe that' s just me.

It seems a bit odd to me too, but perhaps I can understand. Because of the transplant Daniel has been able to marry, and have these kids. Without his father's donation, he may never have had Oscar (or Estelle). Oscar has his grandfather's name but christening him on the day his grandpa sacrificed a kidney to Daniel, may be seen as a tribute to Olle.

Or maybe it was merely a coincidence. I could well understand as well, if they chose that date because they consider it special.
