Article in german newspaper

Stones instead of pearls
Since Crown Princess Victoria wore one of her necklaces four years ago, the jewelry of Märta Larsson has been popular. The designer relies on handpicked stones from all over the world.
Four years ago, there was her "Victoria Moment". Suddenly, Märta Larsson's name was in many newspapers and magazines, especially in her home country Sweden. Her career, which had only lasted a few months then, then picked up so much speed that the jewelry designer, who was still pregnant at the time, barely followed the production of new necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings.
Meanwhile, Märta Larsson's son Äsom is three and a half years old. The demand for her jewelry has continued to grow, but now she gets along so well that she even had the time to create a collection of silk towels and kimonos. They are printed with stones, which Larsson used for her jewelry. Her first prêt-à-porter collection was presented at the Tuileries showroom in March at Paris Fashion Week.
The momentous "Victoria moment" - of course it had to do with the Swedish Crown Princess. Victoria came to official visit to Germany four years ago. First stop was Hamburg. There, according to tradition, she was welcomed by the city mayor, Olaf Scholz, to the top of the staircase in the Town hall, even though the Crown Princess was traveling on crutches after a ski accident. It was a gnawing for the press, which shone with headlines such as "Royal despite crutches!" And "delight with crutches".
Special mention was always the "chain in XL", which the future Swedish queen wore around her neck: black tourmaline, as big as walnuts. "That was my Victoria moment," says Märta Larsson.

Every year a film is made of Victoria's visits to one activity The Crown Princess Victoria's Fund supports. Victoria visited on 17th May Skota Hem, which organizes sailing for people with disabilities. The whole video of the visit will be shown on 29th June, and many times after that, and also at Victoria's birthday concert. But SVT has already now a short clip of the video:

Designer Maxjenny: "Victoria is best at promoting Swedish design"
Maxjenny Forslund grew up with a mother who was fashion designer and father who was a silversmith. Of this, was born a daughter who makes clothes beautiful as jewelery, something that even Crown Princess Victoria discovered.
Maxjenny loves strong colors and gets stuck on the street for her original clothes. Designer Maxjenny Forslund wants to give her customers a unique experience. Even Crown Princess Victoria has worn design of this Swede who lives in Copenhagen.
- I think the crown princess is topnotch and so good at promoting Swedish design. She is so stylish and seems to have a good self-esteem. Should I meet Victoria, I probably would completely mess myself up and become kicked out because I'm so spontaneous, she says with a laugh.
- In Victoria's position, she has eyes on her, it's fun she likes to wear Swedish design, designer Maxjenny Forslund says.

Vardaga updated this photo and story to their Facebook a couple of days ago.

When a person suffers from dementia, the relatives are also affected to a great extent. Thousands of questions arise, no simple answers are found. For Gunilla von Krusenstierna, whose sister lives with Alzheimer's disease, the Alzheimer Race, organized by Vardaga and the Alzheimer Foundation, was a nice experience and a help in the grief.
It was also an experience beyond the usual when she was stopped by a walking Crown princess who wondered what race was going on in Haga Park. Gunilla told about the Alzheimer Race and about her sister and they had a nice conversation about how to be a relative of a person with Alzheimer's. "My sister is very fond of the royal house and getting a picture with Princess Victoria and my personal greeting to her was very important", says Gunilla.

Alzheimer Race was in Haga Park on 26th May.

Svensk Damtidning has noticed that Daniel has a new watch. It comes from the new brand Carl Edmond, Daniel's friend Peter "Foppa" Forsberg is one of the owners of Carl Edmond.
Daniel's new watch is square with some vintage vibes and the model is called Granit White Deluxe. It costs 2100 SEK, about 200 euros.
The label Carl Edmond describes itself as a mix of Swedish minimalism and Swiss skill. It was launched last autumn by founder Ali Nouri together with swedish Hollywood Star Joel Kinnaman, and now "Foppa" has now chosen to invest and join as partner with his spouse Nicole Nordin.
Svensk Damtidning guesses that maybe Daniel has got the watch as a present? He and Foppa have been good friends for many years.

From finnish Iltalehti

Princess Victoria is 41 years old - 6 reasons why she is a model for every woman
Crown Princess Victoria is admired by Swedish women - no wonder. A gorgeous forty-year old who also laughs for herself.
Modern, relaxed, with dignity and direct in her opinions. Swedish women want to be like that. It is no wonder, therefore, that Crown Princess Victoria is a model for many women of her age. She represents everything that is important to a modern Swedish woman: equality, integrity and the ability to laugh for herself.
Today, the crown princess is 41 years old and super popular. We found out what makes Victoria so loved and admired, especially among women.
She dares to be open
Victoria was as a child an obligated big sister who cared for her little brother and sister when the parents were away. Victoria was trained for her future role as very young. The future queen succeeded in her studies both at school and later at university. Victoria seemed to be successful in everything she did. When Madeleine, known as a party princess, celebrated and made headlines, Victoria focused on responsibilities. The future queen was in headlines in her twenties when she became ill with eating disorder. Her illness was seen as an indication that the pressures had grown too hard. Later, she spoke of her illness openly and told that she had been given treatment therapy. The princess was thanked for bringing the subject up and showing an example that you must talk of the mental problems.
She laughs for herself
The years have made her more relaxed - at least in public. She is self-confident, radiant and laughs often. There are several video clips of the Crown Princess where she laughs heartily, especially when the formal part of the visit or event is over. Often, Victoria is amused of her own doing and saying.
She shows her feelings
The brilliant wedding revealed to everyone how in love and happy Victoria and Daniel really were. For many ordinary Swedes a common man becoming a prince was initially a shock, but eventually those who suspected had to admit: a couple was made to each other. It is partly due to Daniel that an another, softer side of the crown princess has been seen. In his wedding speech, Daniel revealed that Victoria had written a love letter to him every day when she was away on her long business trip. What a romantic!
She is a mother and she is having a career
In February 2012 Estelle was born and in 2016 little brother Oscar. Now she suffers from the same problem as most of us: how to get enough time to work and family.
- It's really difficult. Especially since my role as a crown princess and my job are important to me. I often feel myself split because I want to reach so many areas of life. Above all, I want to be a good mother and a role model, she said in an interview last summer.
Victoria is a role model for many also because she has admitted she suffers from her high demands. In Sweden, where women's stress and well-being have been spoken about a lot lately, the crown princess's transparency is considered important.
She participates
Victoria is active especially in equality and environmental issues. It is important for her to show an example, participate and get others involved. She loves nature and in 2016 she was named a UN Ambassador for Sustainable Development Goals. The princess has told her that her family recycles a lot and talk about the importance of her own choices to the environment. Victoria has described herself as an outdoor enthusiast, and the whole family is spending a lot of time in nature.
She has an impeccable sense of style
You can't talk about Victoria without mentioning her style. Even though the crown princess is not a fashion princess, her classical, trendy style is well copied. Victoria favors Swedish designers, recycles clothing and has been especially praised for the fact that she also favors clothes from cheap clothing chains.

Finnish women's magazine Anna had an article about Victoria last week.
The princess's new challenges
At the article among other things
Congratulations dear princess Victoria. On your 41st birthday we would want to give you as a gift more strength, wisdom and courage. You are going to need them, because there are new challenges coming into your life.
How lucky the swedish royal court has been, when they have Victoria. Whatever happens in the royal family, nobody says a bad word about the crown princess. The Swedes think she is genuine and empathic, and her work is widely praised.
People witness a strange effect in Sweden: when the popularity of the royal house decreases, the popularity of Victoria increases. She relates to this responsibly:
- Popularity brings also responsibilities, Victoria has reminded.
The image on Victoria's 40th birthday was delightful, but what next? What are Victoria's threats and possibilities to keep up the attractiveness of the court? The task isn't easy. Victoria must maintain her credibility, but at the same time to be careful, how and where she speaks out. Victoria has been active in environmental issues. A couple of weeks ago she collected plastic waste on a beach with a school class and set a good example.
Good and human stories have also their challenges: are they interesting enough? How many are excited when Victoria hikes in every province in Sweden, because she wants to get to know the nature in Sweden. The media follows every hike.

Still as happy for this picture From last spring when I left our fairy tales to Prince Daniel. In my dream, he and the children read about cool queen Maggan in the evenings, and Queen Kristina, who was only 6 years old when she became queen! And then Kalle's wild adventure! - What a muddler to a King

Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat published a special issue of Sweden in th beginning of July.
Victoria on the cover
Sweden
Victoria saves the popularity of the royal family
Image Upper.com - Free Image Hosting - View Image

An ordinary princess
Sweden is already expecting Victoria to become the queen. The beloved crown princess is a life ring for the monarchy, whose popularity the king has unsettled by messing around.
The article tells among other things that Victoria is wonderfully ordinary, somebody thought too ordinary, when she fell in love with Daniel and married him. Afterwards it can be seen that it was a right choice and has not decreased the popularity of the crown princess.
King Carl Gustaf's good speech after the tsunami catastrophe was well received by the Swedes and the decrease of the of the popularity of the monarchy stopped for two years. But then in 2010 came the scandal with the book "Den motvilliga monarken" (The reluctant monarch). And the king's behaviour was seen as totally unacceptable. The popularity of the king decreased and it hasn't stopped after that.
The king highlights the remoteness connected with his position. He is a member of the generation, who thinks that you should not talk about your feelings publicly. Victoria on the other hand has shown her vulnerable side by talking about her dyslexia and about how she has felt that her mission is burdensome sometimes. Victoria chooses skillfully work events, which support with a good way an image of common and modern royal. She skis with school children from fourth grade, goes to a fish factory and shakes hands with Pepper robot. All this is important, when it is knwon, that the popularity of the monarchy is the lowest among the young people. However, Victoria has managed to increase this popularity. Victoria's good eye for PR was well noticed when she delivered the Gay of the Year Award in 2013. It differed from the court's normal work, and was widely praised in social media.
The fact that Victoria's popularity is directly away from her father makes the dynamism interesting. According to a survey conducted by Demoskop to Expressen, a year ago, three out of five Swedes believe that Victoria represents Sweden the best. Only 19 % thinks king Carl Gustaf represents Sweden best.
Victoria is considered to a person people can easily identify themselves with and as authentic, a good type. Even the opponents of the monarchy support her.
The women in Sweden are a little more royalist than men and older people more royalist than younger. The well educated are a little more willing to relinquish the monarchy as the workers, but the differences are small.
One trend is clear: the popularity of the king decreases and the popularity of Victoria increases.

Gudrun Sjödén: Great that Victoria wears swedish design

Svensk Damtidning has been in contact with designer queen Gudrun Sjödén.
For over 40 years, Gudrun Sjödén has created colorful and environmentally friendly clothing for women. Now she is up to date with a new exciting exhibition that is featured at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, USA. It will be shown from 26 July to 28 October.
- The exhibition about my universe will open new doors to the future of the giant American market and the whole universe, says Gudrun Sjödén.
Gudrun is one of Scandinavia's most successful designers and she has customers all over the world.
Her international successes have been praised, also by King Carl Gustaf who gave her a medal in 2007.
- It was incredibly honorable. The medal impresses greatly abroad, including in the United States, she tells.
Gudrun Sjödén's design has been born by several Swedish celebrities, but also by royalty. Among others, Crown Princess Victoria.
- The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel participated in a design trip to Estonia, where we had an exhibition at a museum. We had made a collection inspired by their island Muhu. The Crown Princess appreciates Swedish design and I think that is great.

Finnish family magazine Seura had two weeks ago an article about Victoria and Estelle
At the article among other things:

Adored figurehead and loving mother
Crown princess Victoria is more popular than ever. One of the her main tasks is to raise her heir to the throne, princess Estelle, who will follow in her mother's footsteps in many things.
Sincere, hard-working, genuine, cordial ... Many praising words are used when people talk about crown princess Victoria. Victoria has charmed people in Sweden and abroad. At the same time as the popularity of the royal house decreases, Victoria's popularity increases. Victoria is able to be both a careerwoman, who familiarizes herself seriously on her duties, and immanent mother. The people see her as a perfect figurehead of the country. Every year on July 14, many Swedes arrive to Solliden to congratulate her. A smiling Estelle helped her mother to carry the gifts Victoria got. The little princess, second in the line of succession, will follow in the future in her mother's footsteps in many things.
Victoria's way to a mother of a sweet family and an idol of the Swedes has not been easy. In the TV4 document last year Victoria spoke openly of her difficulties. In addition to dyslexia, she has also suffered from face blindness. Victoria had to also fight for her love.
Victoria has often spoken about the importance of balance. She has had to balance between the role of the crown princess and the dreams of private life since she was young. Now everyday life is characterized by busy years with small children. On the other hand, home and family are the things which bring happiness and peace of mind for Victoria. She has stressed that she wants to be more present than her own parents were. Victoria spoke openly of her dreams of having own children.
The whole Sweden went crazy with the little princess when Estelle was born. What kind of life it will be for Estelle? What kind of restrictions the position as the second in line of succession already brings for her? Estelle was born at the Karolinska University Hospital, as many other Swedes. The parents have tried to guarantee as normal childhood as possible for Estelle. Despite her down-to-earth parents, Estelle's life differs in many ways from the ordinary Swedish six-year-old's everyday life. Like Victoria, Estelle has been trained as a queen since childhood. "She will go through many stages of her life, and I believe that unlimited love and endless hugs are a good foundation", Victoria said in TV4 document. Estelle has been with her mother at official events since she was a baby. Victoria has described her daughter as a social and curious girl who thinks it's fun to meet new people. These features will undoubtedly help Estelle in the future. Whatever Estelle does when she grows up, numerous people follow her. She is never just one student among the others. While Victoria was at school, many parents tried to get their children to the same school. They believed that if their children were a friend of a princess, it would create good contacts in the future. It will be the same for Estelle.
Estelle can enjoy her student life and choose interesting school subjects. However, everything is aiming for the day when she is crowned as a queen. Victoria made the way easier to Estelle when she married a gym entrepreneur instead of a royal. That is why Estelle will have it easier to choose her spouse as her mother. Victoria and Estelle are united by the fact that their lives are financially secure and in many ways privileged. On the reverse side, the life of a heir to the throne is also largely predetermined in advance.
Victoria has said she has grown to the role as a future queen since her childhood. "I have lived my whole life in serving Sweden. This may sound pretentious, but that's how I really feel", Victoria said at TT's interview. We will see if Estelle takes her role as calmly and with big heart.
In addition to the personality traits, Estelle and Victoria’s looks are much the same. The magazines publish Estelle and Victoria's childhood pictures side by side and write "they are like two peas in a pod". In Estelle's gentle glance and mischievious smile there is a lot we already know.
It would be a lottery win for Sweden, if Estelle became as popular as Victoria. Many signs suggest that this is exactly how it will happen. And can Estelle be more popular than her mother? Now it is hard to imagine that popular Victoria would be shadowed by her children, but it happened to Silvia when her children were growing up. Maybe after 20 years Estelle is the biggest star in Sweden.

Power-mother and power-businesswoman crown princess Victoria
We live in a time when a woman should have a career, be the world's best mom, wife, work out and even have a home that's tip-top. As a royal one, you usually get help with the latter, but as a future regent the press is extra big on what you do and how the public's eyes are constantly looking on you.
In TV4's "Victoria 40" the Crown Princess told how she balances the role of crown princess with her life as a mother:
- Being outdoors is a key to me. There is something that charges my batteries and what I need. I'm not an indoor person. I need to get out and feel that I breathe a little.
It is no small role the Crown Princess has on her shoulders. She is Sweden's future queen and she takes her role in all seriousness.
- I believe in this, and I really want to do what I can to contribute to Sweden. What I can do is highlight things, and I can show Sweden, said the crown princess in "Year with the Royal Family" last year.
The crown princess is most passionate about environment, children and health and in a smart way she has put together all these pieces of puzzle in her commitment.
She was appointed by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as an ambassador to the UN Global Sustainable Development Goals.
Victoria has chosen to focus on issues related to water and health. When the crown princess does something she does it with heart and to the full. She has visited Japan twice. Last year to deepen more in her work on sustainability, marine and fisheries issues. In September she attended a meeting of ten of the world's largest seafood companies. The aim was to further develop global cooperation on sustainable seas.
Now Victoria is in New York participating in meetings in the UN Headquarters regarding the climate targets in 2030.
In terms of health, Victoria cares very much that everyone should be involved, the wallet should not control if one can move or not. When the Crown Princess turned 40, she wanted in some way make a difference and came up with the idea of ​​hiking through Sweden's 25 provinces. The Crown Princess wants to show that forests and nature are available and free to all of us!
Victoria also reveals that we all have a responsibility to take care of Sweden, for example, not to waste garbage in our forests.
- Today, people all over Sweden are out and pick up litter. And around the world, millions of people participate in the World Cleanup Day. Amazingly good! At the same time, we know that the solution to the problem is not to pick up litter. But to quit littering, said Victoria on Keep Sweden Tidy Day.
As said, the Crown Princess takes her role in the utmost seriousness, with great responsibility and respect. Think what a role model she is for her children. Estelle, who herself one day will be Queen, to show her how she thanks to her title, can contribute to a change and help others. That you can be a businesswoman and mom at the same time. That both Estelle and Oscar see that both men and women can be successful in their jobs while being a good parent. One does not need to rule out the other. It is still so that in 2018 it is not entirely acceptable for women to make a career while being a good mom.
As a mom, we see Victoria as hugging, supportive, accessible and pedagogic.
- Crown Princess Victoria is incredibly engaged and so present with the children. Despite her role and responsibility as a future queen, she is always available in some way for Estelle and Oscar, says a source.
So thank you Crown Princess Victoria for being the role model you are as a committed mom and professional woman!

Daniel and Oscar were on Sunday at a football match between Daniel's favourite team AIK and Hammarby IF. AIK won 1-0. A public record was made, there was 49 034 people at the Friends Arena at the match. Daniel's friend Patrik Vrbanc was with them.

Victoria and Estelle have been on a Stockholm tour with M/S Estelle, an amphibious bus.

Estelle and mother Victoria went to the bus - on the water

All parents know how important it can be to get to experience something special with one child at a time. And when Victoria and Estelle do something together it will be gladly something adventurous. They chose to go to a tour of Scandinavia's only amphibious bus - a bus that runs straight down into the water and changes to the boat.
Many gaped enough of surprise when they saw the bus with Crown Princess Victoria and Estelle running straight to the water in Djurgårdsbrunnsviken.
So they chose the sightseeing tour in Stockholm with amphibious bus that goes on both land and water. Amphibious bus M/S Estelle which is named after Princess Estelle, is Scandinavia's only one of its kind and therefore tourist boat and bus in the same vehicle.
It was mother Victoria who booked herself and Princess Estelle under the names "Mr. and Mrs. Andersson" in order not to arouse excitement. During the 75 minute journey they got to go on a guided tour along the streets of Stockholm and together with other tourists hear interesting facts about famous people of Stockholm: Avicii, Lill-Babs and ABBA members.
With large shark teeth on the outside the ten-ton vehicle causes both resurrection and curiosity where it rolls through the streets with Swedish music through the speakers. Until it comes to Villa Källhagen in Royal Djurgården. Because then it rolls heavily bumping, the guests delighted screaming, down the reinforced beach and serves as a boat instead.
There waits a boat ride both past celebrity yachts in the Royal Motor Yacht Club into Djurgårdsbrunnsviken. The tour goes past the Gröna Lund, while the captain and entertaining sailor sing with the "Stockholm in my heart" before pointing out where the warship Vasa sank.
At the center of the boat, you can also open a door so the prospective can take a swim or splash with her feet if the mood takes you. After a boat trip among waving, yelling and big smile second boater takes the amphibious bus shaking up to the land again with spy melodies of James Bond.

As I often say it's nice that we get to hear about these outings without intrusive photos. The Swedish paparazzi and general public seem to be one of the kindest towards their royals IMO. It's great that the family can walk about Stockholm like any regular family almost unnoticed.
