This is a great idea - it'll help children in inner city and urban areas get the chance to get regular exercise which might be difficult otherwise and people will probably be encouraged after seeing the CP family go on one of these holidays.

Svensk Damtidning reveals that Victoria, Daniel and the children are on a skiing holiday in Italian ski resort Gressoney La Trinité. The article is behind a paywall, but Stoppa pressarna quotes the article and tells what's in it. The eyewitnesses say that Daniel conversed with Swedes both in the slopes and in the lift queue.

Finnish reporter Marika Lehto writes at her royal blog among other things:

Victoria and Daniel have loved each other in public for a decade - and we have loved them too
I've made one or two observations about which royals and what kinds of things in monarchies the finnish people are interested in. Somehow the most touching and interesting has been what has surprised the least - our love for the Swedish crown princess Victoria. I know that there is a warm feeling in the hearts of many people, even when we see new pictures of Victoria's children. Why do we love these people, this couple and family so much?
The royals are at the same time like a historical and entertaining reality TV-series. We are hooked on hearing how it is going for Victoria. My generation has grown, graduated, married and got children at the same time with her. She is distant, aristocratic and as future queen pretty close to the fairytale, but still somehow familiar to us during the decades.
Victoria is extremely popular not only in Sweden, but also in the neighboring countries because she is truly genuine, warm and wise. Somebody may say how do you know that. Of course, it's not entirely possible, but if you have followed Swedish media and royals for a long time, you realize that no one who is in such a ruthless spotlight can fake it every hour, day, month and year. Victoria is not considered to be flawless, but friendly, dedicated and smart. She is widely appreciated in Sweden.
The public's feelings have hardly been reduced by the fact that, as always in good drama, we have been able to follow her suffer. Victoria has dyslexia, she got anorexia in 1997, Daniel was not immediately regarded as a suitable boyfriend.
Victoria's attraction is great, but Daniel has added his wife and couple's enchantment. The lack of Daniel's education was forgotten at the latest when he held an unforgettable speech to Victoria at the wedding. Daniel is a royal spouse at its best - in love, close to people, diligent and intelligent. Being particularly interested in entrepreneurship and public health in his own work, Daniel is perhaps the husband or son-in-law of their dreams to many people.
Then there is the one side that sounds silly, but it is true. Aren't we so fascinated by them because their love story is so great? Don't we always want to believe in love greater than life? Don't you feel good to follow their story and rejoice with them?
We come to genuineness again. It is not enough to be born royal and hold a pompous wedding. You can watch it without feeling anything. But Victoria and Daniel's engagement interview, let alone wedding, can no one who has avoided cynisicm in their lives look without a little warm feeling in their hearts. Have you ever seen a happier bride? That's why 10 years later, we're happy with them. Love has continued and can still be felt.
Of course, the cynical one could now say that this is exactly what the royal PR-machine wants us to think. The monarchy needs admiration and lack of critical thinking from the people, and it is excellent for the monarchy that the Crown Princess has an exemplary family. I personally think people are smart. Victoria, the future head of state, can be appreciated and admired as a person, but even if you wish everything good for her and her family, monarchy as a system is a different thing.
People need love. If in your hearts is also a place for the Swedish crown princess, it shows humanity.
Victoria ja Daniel ovat rakastaneet toisiaan julkisuudessa vuosikymmenen – ja niin mekin heitä

According to La Stampa's article from yesterday, Victoria, Daniel and the children have been in Alagna in Italy. Alagna is very close to Gressoney La Trinité.

A photo of Victoria skiing with Oscar
Princess Victoria of Sweden has been in Alagna for a week for a skiing holiday. The heir to the Swedish throne together with husband Daniel, her children and a group of friends, followed by bodyguards and other staff, chose the Valsesian area to spend a few days of relaxation. At the Alagna Experience Resort, the eldest daughter of king Carl XVI Gustaf and queen Silvia lived the village life, shopped in stores and went to some restaurants.
- Really very humble people in their refined elegance, says Silvia Costa, owner of Montagna di luce.
- For dinner the other evening we received the reservation in the strictest confidence, so we were asked not to take photographs. A group of 26 members in all, including ten children, to whom we have reserved an entire room to guarantee their privacy. They ate simple dishes including salads, cold cuts and cheeses, trout, risotto, meat and cream ice cream.
- They bought the weekly pass and skiied practically every day, says Andrea Colla, director of Monterosa 2000.
- An important presence of the royals, a signal that our destination is growing with one of the most beautiful areas of the Alps that offers a place like Alagna that is also chosen by famous people who flee from the most exclusive centers.
In order not to disturb their holiday, mayor Roberto Veggi preferred not to officially meet Princess Victoria but to deliver local products and three local culture books.

Gästrikland's Sports Gala will be held on 11th April.
The inauguration of the Ugglebo Arena on 25th January 2018 is among the nominations at "The Sports Event of the Year". Daniel, some of Sweden's biggest NHL-stars and other well-known hockey players played in team Generation Pep, against Ockelbo HC.

The inauguration of the Ugglebo Arena "The Prince Match"
When Ockelbo HC finally inaugurated their own hockey hall, it was done with an event together with Ockelbo municipality that didn't only draw attention to the sport but the whole resort. With royal shine, where Prince Daniel was on the ice with his own team, they created an evening to enjoy - and to remember.

Nice to see the photos. Are Swedish children of Estelle's age familiar with ABBA and their music? Over here a lot of their songs are popular party numbers, especially Dancing Queen, so most younger people who were born after ABBA first became popular at least are familiar with one of them. I was born post-ABBA myself though my mother was a teenager and student in the midst of the era, so I often had their songs playing around the house and was familiar with most of them.

Svensk Damtidning told in last week's issue that when Victoria and Daniel and the children attended at the IBU Biathlon World Championships in Östersund on Sunday 17th March, they had been skiing in Åre at the weekend. According to eyewitnesses, Prince Oscar seems to have become really skillful on skiing. After four ski trips in a short time, the prince carved down the slopes with ease, even though mom Victoria of course went right next to him.

The fundraising for Kronprinsessan Victorias Fond (The Crown Princess Victoria's fund) amounted to SEK 18,835,350 in 2018. It was 55 percent higher than in 2017, mainly due to testaments and an individual gift of SEK 4,350,000. Crown Princess Victoria's fund works to ensure that children and young people with disabilities or chronic illness in Sweden get an active leisure time.
113 activities with approximately 5,000 participants were granted funding from the Crown Princess Victoria's fund for children with disabilities or chronic illness.

Svensk Damtidning's article about Victoria as a queen

A Woman and a Regent - Victoria becomes unique
Queen of Europe
She is made to be a queen! Victoria has natural charm, charisma and kindness. Besides, she is intelligent and committed.
Crown Princess Victoria will be the first reigning Bernadotte queen someday, and also the only reigning queen in Europe. In Victoria's generation, there are only male heirs to the throne.
In 1980, the Swedish Constitution was changed so that the oldest child becomes a the heir to the throne, regardless of gender. The king was quite open with the fact that he was not completely satisfied how the law affected Prince Carl Philip, but today he has of course accepted this completely and is also extremely proud of his oldest daughter.
In the generation after Crown Princess Victoria, a majority of Estelle's regent colleagues will be queens.

Lisa Emelia Svensson, UN Environment’s Ambassador for Ocean, told at her interview in Svensk Damtidning, that at her work she meets regularly crown princess Victoria, who is UN Sustainable Development Goals Advocate. Svensson says that the last time they met at UN where Victoria spoke about how important it is to cooperate with companies which can also participate and lead the work for instance against over-fishing of the seas. The Crown Princess has for a long time been active and engaged in maritime issues, and is always incredibly committed and well prepared, says Svensson.

Svensk Damtidning is inaccurate as concerns regent queens: The majority of hereditary monarchies still do not allow female monarchs. And, as far as I am aware, King Carl Gustaf has never accepted the change in the Constitution, though he has not spoken about it in the past few years.

I guess they only considered the European colleagues. Outside of Europe it's indeed a completely different story.

Female monarchs: Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain
Male monarchs: Denmark, UK, Liechtenstein, Monaco

If all these countries had equal promigeniture, Monaco would also be in the list of female monarchs.
If all of them had male-preference, only The Netherlands and Spain would keep their female monarch.
If all of them had female-preference, all countries would have a female monarch in that generation!

Thanks, I guess that was indeed the mindset of the magazine, which seems misaimed as Estelle would have greater odds of hosting the monarchs of major Asian and Middle Eastern monarchies on state visits than the European reigning prince of Liechtenstein.

But even if only the other nine European royal families are taken into account, those who currently expect to be ruled by a female monarch in Estelle's generation are in the minority (four monarchies: Norway, Belgium, Spain, and the Netherlands). If the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg's eldest child is a son, the majority (five out of nine) of Estelle's European colleagues will be male.

An interesting subject to think about.

If male preference were given to all males of the ruling dynasty and not only the sons of the monarch, even the Netherlands would have lost its future female monarch, as Prince Constantijn and his son Count Claus-Casimir would be the heirs in lieu of Princess Catharina-Amalia.

On the other hand, if all European monarchies had introduced equal primogeniture in King Carl XVI Gustaf's generation, then nearly all his European colleagues - Charles of Britain and Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein excepted - would be female.

Kaffetorpet (Cottage Café) in Solliden has been open for Easter on 18-22 April.
A man tells at his Instagram, that he met Victoria and family there some days ago.
"Not every day you chitchat with the crown princess, the prince and the children. But today was that day when they had a coffee break at Kaffetorpet, as did we".
Someone asked for photos and the man answers that he didn't dare to take photos.
