I know it's meant to be stylized, but I don't like that drawing at all She looks like Posh Spice, not herself!


I'm hoping we'll get photos and a video of Estelle baking with her parents again this year. I love those past videos they've released in past years!!

Here is another photo of Victoria and Estelle with Christer Lindarw and After Dark.
"Last matinee at Oscarsteatern. What a joy that Crown Princess Victoria and super cute princess Estelle came and greeted us behind the scene. What memories this production has created".
https://www.instagram.com/p/BcxpxwCB...=oscarsteatern

Christer Lindarw put to his Instagram a photo of the flower bouquet which he got from Victoria and Estelle:
"The beautiful bouquet I received from Crown Princess Victoria and little Princess Estelle. And the flower shop has misspelled ... Hm"
https://www.instagram.com/p/BczJ19th...hristerlindarw

What a mistake from the flower shop ... to write "Viktoria".

Expressen writes about Victoria and Estelle attending at After Dark show. Margareta Thorgren said to Expressen:
- They were there privately, so the court doesn't comment it.
Sofia and princess Christina and Tord Magnuson saw the show some weeks ago. Tord Magnuson said then to Expressen:
- Wonderful. Incredible. It was terriric, it could not be better. We saw it and went home after that, it was really terrific.

I doubt that. Christer Lindarw tells at his book that queen Silvia had told him that Victoria loved to watch the Shows of Christer and After Dark from video when she was a child. Christer has performed as queen Silvia a lot, he started to do it already at the late 1970s. Christer performed on Victoria's 40th birthday concert and the royal family loved it. This show was his last big show with After Dark (he is 64 years old), so it was great that Victoria and Estelle went to see the show and met Christer and gave him flowers.
The After Dark Show was at Oscarsteatern. The director of Oscarsteatern, Vicky von der Lancken (at the group photo on the left of Christer Lindarw) is a friend of king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia.

I know, hence the smiley. It was just a speculation

Expressen tells that Victoria, Daniel and the children fly tomorrow to Italy for a holiday. Margareta Thorgren said that they are having a private holiday at Christmas and New Year like many of us. Thorgren said also that the members of the royal family are back at work on 8th January.

Victoria and Daniel have their first public work event of 2018 on 11th January according to the calendar.

QX Magazine writes in its newest issue, that the QX Gay Gala celebrates it's 20th anniversary in 2018. They reminisce the most important things at the Galas during the years.

"I would like to have some information about the Gay Gala on 4th February. Would you have time to come here to the Royal Palace to a short meeting?" It was 20th November when the e-mail came. QX had again sent a letter to the court, asking if crown princess Victoria could deliver a prize at the Gala. I put a fine shirt on when I visited the Palace a couple of weeks later. I told about the gala and the setup and a couple of weeks later I got the information that Victoria would deliver a prize. But it should be kept as a secret. We wanted that and they wanted that. That the suprise would be as big as possible. Victoria arrived with her entourage about an hour before she should deliver the prize and waited patiently in the dark behind the scenes so that no one would see her. She was very nice and let some of us who worked with the gala take photos with her.
Then it was the time. The host of the evening Jenny Strömsted presented Victoria and at first the crowd celebrated cautiously: "Did she say Victoria?" "Does she really mean that?" "It has to be Christer Lindarw". Then everybody saw, it was her. Victoria was there. The cheers got louder and continued and would never end. Now we would really show how big this was, how welcomed she was, how we had waited and longed. Victoria saw shocked with the reception and we couldn't get the people to stop to applaud. Then Victoria held one of the best prize-giving speeches at the gala history. It was so elegant, personal and she was significantly taken about the situation.
The day after Victoria was at all headlines and the news that a royal delivered a prize to the Gay of the Year at a Gay Gala spread all over the world. Victoria's participation at the Gay Gala is definitely the biggest thing what has happened during these 20 years.

Really lovely story I remember seeing Victoria present that, when it was in the news. Its great to see royals like Victoria involved in such. It obviously meant a lot to the organization, as well as those in attendance.

I hope the family enjoys their vacation in Italy.

It seems that Victoria and Oscar were on Tuesday in Bollnäs.
Put to Twitter yesterday:
"It is in Bollnäs it happens: ran into the crown princess and little prince in the sports store yesterday. Backed up tightly in the snow. Properly. Lucky to have strong relatives."
https://twitter.com/hstintan/status/946032736724283393

The Westlings' summer house and Victoria's and Daniel's other summer house is in Acktjära in Bollnäs.

Photographer Pelle T Nilsson put to his Instagram a collage of nine most liked photos in 2017. There is a photo of Victoria at the Nobel Banquet and Estelle at Victoria's birthday.

Jewellery maker Havsglas published a collage too, there is a photo of Victoria wearing Havsglas earrings (made from sea glass collected along the shores of Skåne) with Estelle on their visit to Askö Laboratory.

Aftonbladet asked Inizio to make a survey about how the Swedes want to spend their New Year's Eve. 1043 people, 16 years or older, were interviewed on 20-21 December.

The Swedes want to give Crown Princess Victoria the task of reading "Nyårsklockan" (Tennyson's poem "Ring out wild bells" in swedish) from Sollidenscenen on Skansen, according to a new survey.
Carl Jan Granqvist, a restaurateur, food and wine connoisseur and television personality understands this well:
- I think it would be very delightful. She symbolizes our country in a magnificent way and is respected by most, he says.

At New Year's Eve on Skansen is entertainment on the Solliden stage where the classic lord Tennyson poem "Ring out wild bells" is recited every year at midnight for a large audience.

Like Mother like daughter.

More and more often, Crown Princess Victoria uses Mother Queen's clothes.
In addition to a nice retro feeling, it is also a way for Victoria to convey thoughts about sustainability.
Before Victoria wore the yellow dress, it had only been viewed during a state visit in the former Soviet Union in 1978. Queen Silvia wore it with a hat - which Victoria had left home. The one who thinks royal clothes are used only once and then are thrown away is completely wrong. On the contrary - the royal clothes are preserved for a long time in the dressing room of the Palace and preserved for generations.
Partly for cultural purposes, to be displayed in museums in the future, partly because they actually want the clothes to live for a long time to come.
- There is a thought of sustainabiity in what goes through all the crown princess does. It permeates what she chooses to participate in, but also the choice of clothes. The entire royal family is very committed to sustainability issues, said Margareta Thorgren.
Media's eyes are often directed towards the royals' clothes. Throughout the years, Expressen has written a lot about the royal clothes, and Svensk Damtidning has fashion blog "Kungliga modebloggen", on royal fashion. The royals have understood this and by letting the clothes speak, it is a great way for the royal family to put the focus on issues such as environment and sustainability.
- That Victoria chooses to wear Silvia's clothes sends a signal that the reuse of clothes is hot and right. Victoria is happy to raise these questions and has always shown her personal interest by using, for example, a piece of clothing many times. Most often, it takes place in official contexts - when for many it may be extra important to showcase something new, but Victoria ignores that, says Magda Omerspahic, Expressen's fashion expert.
There are several examples of when this has worked efficiently. When Victoria visited Japan in 2017, it was to deepen her knowledge of fisheries and marine issues - one of the UN's sustainable development goals. On the first full day, she chose to wear a dress the queen had worn 37 years earlier. Several media in Sweden wrote about the dress and the Swedish people could inevitably see that sustainability is an issue that engages the Crown Princess.
- Victoria really fits in Silvia's old clothes, which you can say are extremely well-preserved and work fine even today. Trends come and go, but classic dresses work for many years. She carries all this very well, says Magda Omerspahic.

Interesting how the court sees wearing a dress a few times over several decades is seen as a sustainability issues, while most people would wear a dress many more times within a few weeks, months or years.

Still, I like to see royals wearing the same outfit multiple times and understand that there are some limitations because of their position but in the end even that is a choice (I assume the royal men wear the same suit quite often). If they would start wearing clothes like most people (which is significantly reduce the number of different outfits) that would be far better for the environment.
