Malin Collin, columnist at Expressen, spoke today at TV4 Nyhetsmorgon about Victoria, in the beginning of this video.

These qualities mean that Victoria is absolutely perfect
Malin Collin says:
Crown Princess Victoria is a PR genius. The monarchy should be outdated but our country has come so far from it, and it is because of this woman. If we start by watching what was seen on Nobel on Monday. Then the crown princess came in the same Nina Ricci dress that her mother had in the 90's. And it's definitely not for the first time that Crown Princess Victoria recycles old clothes, she has done so for many years, gone into her mom's closet and worn nice old clothes. And it's not just her wearing mother’s clothes, princess Estelle has often been seen in the crown princess's old children's clothes in a solemn context. And all this means economising of some kind, you can not buy new all the time. And, above all, environmentally, to use the one that already exists, the Crown Princess has been doing it for a long time.
Anders Pihlblad says: The King's motto is "For Sweden - With the times", she lives for it?
She does. But then I thought of another thing (photo of Victoria hiking). We are used to see the Crown Princess like this often, she has been very interested in the environment and environmental issues since she was a teenager. It has always been high on the agenda. (Photos of Estelle and Oscar at St. Lucia Day) An extra small thing, these wonderful little children, whom today they provide to us in social media, it is modern and so right to stay close to the people, put out "lusse" pictures of princess Estelle and Prince Oscar. All that together feels that she is very serious but with a glimpse of the eye and quite right in time. What a PR bomb she is! She is doing so right, simply, to retain the monarchy.

It's interesting how rewearing an outfit once is linked to being very environmental friendly. Most people rewear their clothes all the rime and hardly ever do I hear them being praised for doing such a wonderful job for the environment.

You are absolutely correct. Over the time I have been on this board, I have seen Royal Fashion Reporters writing about I recycling ensembles all the time, worn with different accessories for a new look, there were even many comments from RR's and forum members remarking how we would love to see "that" again until somewhere over time, the narrative changed.

Now they talk about "recycling" an ensemble like it's cheating or they couldn't be bothered shopping or that they are cheapskates. It is like they are talking about the Celebrity Red Carpet where you definitely don't and won't see an ensemble recycled, for two reasons:

That is so last year!
and
The ensemble belonged to the designer just as the jewels did.

Basically, the RR's are getting on the "fast fashion" train and expect royal women to do the same. Ensembles should be seen once and, I don't know, donated or used for the garden? Whatever they do with them, recycling seems to almost offend them. It's just another way that they are trying to dictate the "Royal" narrative. Their clothes, their marriages, their children, their accommodation, everything is in the mind of the RR's. Personally, I think most of them are out of their minds half the time.

Stoppa pressarna writes that Victoria, Daniel and children are going skiing and will spend the New Year in Trysil in Norway. Victoria and Daniel have spent New Year there also in 2013 and 2016.

Daniel and Victoria had a skibox at their car already on the queen's birthday.

I can't wait to see Estelle on skis again. I wonder what they will do with Oscar as he is too young to ski. Perhaps we will see them all tobogganing.

Victoria and Daniel spoke at the Året med kungafamiljen on Öland about "plogga" in swedish. Plocka skräp + jogga = plogga (pick up litter and jogging) = plogga. Daniel asked about what the word is, Victoria said plogga and said that they would do it in the autumn.
Now Plogga tells about that at their social media. Plogga is an association and popular movement where the activity itself is to pick up litter while jogging.
"More and more Ploggar. The Crown Princess tells that she would Plogga with us in the TV program "Året med kungafamiljen""

Great to see! I was expecting a photo of the family on skis, because Daniel and Victoria are so passionate with Generation Pep and getting the children to move more and want to set a good example, but a video is even better! Wow, Oscar is doing great, and Estelle of course too.
Video is also at court Facebook

Someone comments at Instagram that they saw the family at lunch in Knettsetra yesterday, so obviously yesterday the family was in Trysil.

Yes, in New Year 2013 and 2016. In the beginning of October Victoria and Daniel were in Vemdalen in Sweden with norwegian royals, hiking in the mountains.

Right now, Crown Princess Victoria and family are celebrating the new year in the ski slopes in Trysil in Norway - where Prince Oscar, 2, rooted by both parents during Saturday was seen skiing on a children's slope.
- He looked accustomed to the skis, it went at full speed, says a person who was on the spot at the same time.
During Saturday, the royal family also shared a video of the family on the slope at their Instagram.
- They try to get the children to ski very much. They are athletic. Both Victoria and Daniel like skiing, so it is clear that they are trying to get the children to like this as well, says Expressen's royal columnist Karin Lennmor.
At the end of one of the slopes there is a roller conveyor, which serves as a kind of lift for the smallest children. There, the children go up about 100 meters, then go down the relatively flat slope.
- Victoria went up there with Oscar several times, while Daniel stood at the bottom of the hill and received Oscar who came in full speed, tells a person was on the spot at the same time.
According to people in place, the atmosphere should was happy and easy-going.
- Yes, they were in a very good mood. There was laughter and fun and thaw on the slopes.
Oscar went up and down the small hill at least 3-4 times before the family left the place.
- They talked about maybe going to "fika".
According to Karin Lennmor, it is likely that the family rented their own cabin somewhere in Trysil.
- Sometimes they rent cottages, which I think they did now, but they have also stayed at the Ski Center in Trysil, I know they stayed there once. But I guess they rented a house there.
Whether or not any other member of the royal family is also in Trysil is unclear, but none other than just Daniel, Victoria and Oscar appeared at the video.
Karin Lennmor doesn't believe that the king and queen are in Trysil.
- I find it hard to believe that they are in Norway, but this is Victoria's family and some friends' family who are there. It's their thing.
According to Lennmor, it is also no coincidence why Victoria, just like 2016 and on a number of previous occasions chose to go to just Trysil.
- In particular, I do not think that they are so observed in the Norwegian mountains as in the Swedish. If there is a lot of people on a slope then it is difficult to notice that there is a royal family on the ski slope.

So cute and talented children. We ate lunch next to you one day and then Princess Estelle came with her dad on the same slpe as us. An experience to see part of our fine royal family live. Good continuation in 2019! Hope we'll see you sometime again.

Apparently, Daniel and Victoria thought he was old enough but he is indeed rather young to be skiing.

Oscar, 2, - a prince with a glide
Oscar, 2, slides forward like a prince in the ski slope in Trysil with his arms straight ahead.
And big sister Estelle, 6, shows her little brother a little trick on the skis while mom cheers.
Crown Princess Victoria and family have spent the New Year's week and Epiphany weekend in Trysil. And as usual, it is skiing for the family.
The latest on the slope is of course little prince Oscar, who is only two years old. But he already shows an impressive safety on the skis.
Still and cool as a cucumber, he slides surely, between mom and dad, who must slow down a little when it goes too fast.
He holds his arms outstretched in front of him.
The skis are pink and probably inherited from his big sister, Princess Estelle.
She has some years of experience on the slopes and is even safer than little brother.
- Oscar, check this out! she shouts and slides in front of him and shows how to bend on her knees.
Dad Prince Daniel gently steers Oscar aside, so he should not enter Estelle.
And Mom Victoria, the only one who has ski poles, rejoices and cheers:
- Bravo! Bravo! she shouts.

Good to see the family are looking as if they are enjoying their break! Oscar does indeed seem a little young to be skiing, but I'm sure the ski instructor would have advised otherwise if they thought it was unsafe for him. Can anyone remember how old Estelle was when she was first seen skiing?

Two or three I think so not much older than Oscar.

Estelle was one year and 10 months old. The royal court published on 31st December 2013 this photo of Daniel and Estelle at their Facebook "Princess Estelle's debut at the ski slopes"
https://www.facebook.com/Kungahuset/...type=3&theater

The whole royal family was celebrating New Year 2014 in Cervinia, Italy on a skiing holiday, it was the family's gift to queen Silvia on her 70th birthday.
More photos of Estelle learning skiing then:

And Expressen told on 11th February 2018, that Oscar was on skis when the family was on a skiing holiday in swedish Åre, so Oscar was learning skiing in last winter already, before his 2nd birthday.

Thanks for the info and videi Lady Finn, it was really delightful watching. And to all who filled us in on how old both the kids were when they started to ski.

They really are a lovely and totally relatable family that is easy to admire and fun to follow.

Thank you both for filling me in on Estelle and skiing. So it would seem that Oscar was older than Estelle when he was first seen with skis in public.

Former icehockey player Maria Rooth tells at her Instagram how Daniel apologized her what he said at "Året med kungafamiljen" at the clip of the inauguration of the new sports hall in Ockelbo.
Daniel was interviewed at men's locker room and he expressed his joy of playing with the "guys".
As women also participated during the opening ceremony and ice hockey match, Maria thinks that the statement was exclusive.
- I have been playing ice hockey since I was four years old and am used to this way of talking. I have met Prince Daniel and know that he is a fantastic guy but I felt that he could have said it better, because I know he wanted to include us too.
Maria Rooth was delighted with the conversation with Prince Daniel.
The phone rang when Maria Rooth, 39, stood on the ice with her daughters.
"Hi, it's Prince Daniel."
"In the phone, Prince Daniel sounded remorseful and I feel he was serious when he apologized. He wss ashamed", writes Maria in a post on Instagram.
When the call came from Prince Daniel, where he apologized for his comment, Maria Rooth chose to pay tribute to him in the post.
- He told me it's a habit. But to say it out there will be another thing. He was extremely remorseful. I replied that I greatly appreciated his apology and saw this as the way forward: being able to apologize and put things right. More should do so, she says.
- Hockey is a sport for everyone where girls should have the same opportunity to practice the sport. I take every opportunity I can where I can contribute to change.
Margareta Thorgren says that inclusion is an important issue for the royal family and that Prince Daniel acted quickly.
- As soon as the prince realized his mistake, he wanted immediately call Maria Rooth. Although, at the time of the statement, he was in the men's locker room, he obviously wanted to apologize, she says.
