Johan T Lindwall writes in Expressen about the king's birthday:
Grandpa will get a real surprise on his birthday: Estelle and Leonore. The little princesses should give the king his best birthday gift on his 69th anniversary.
- There are some different plans, confirms Margareta Thorgren from the press department.
It was on the King's birthday in 2012 when Princess Estelle made her official debut for Sweden. She appeared unplanned in the end of the celebration and surprised grandfather King.
At the Palace it is planned for a double surprise in the form of two princesses. Reportedly Estelle will this year be joined by her princess cousin Leonore. It is in such cases the first time they are together at such a big official appearance.
- As many as possible in the family who can attend shall attend at the celebrations for the King, says Thorgren.
The official schedule shows that the King, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Princess Madeleine and Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist will be present at the celebration. For Sofia it will be the debut on the king's birthday and it will most likely be also for Princess Leonore.
- We'll see. It depends on the shape of the day, but sure, there are plans for congratulating, says Thorgren.
The only family member who is missing is Chris O'Neill.
- No, he can unfortunately not attend because he is booked with something else. He is very sad about this and wishes he could have attended, says Thorgren.

The royals came down to the courtyard, and not to the window like before.

In a way it is nice that the royals came down to the courtyard. But Leonore is too small and restless for that. It is almost too much even for Estelle, the ceremony was so long. At the window they would have been more far away from the event.
Estelle became tired

I knew that Chris wasn't scheduled to be there, but Carl Philip also seem to be absent. Has anyone heard anything about his whereabouts?

Estelle and Leonor are very cute. The coat of Princess Madeleine looks way to short IMO.

Carl Philip accompanied his father just like in previous years, like you can see at the photo I posted earlier to this thread. When the royal family came down to the courtyard, Carl Philip stood behind his father.

Seems the women all got the nude/white shoe memo except Silvia.

Estelle and Leonore are so cute and I love their coats. In the video the little moment where Estelle offers her hand to Leonore was so cute.

The king's sisters don't take part at the official celebration, of course for instance Christina could be at the Palace, who knews. I haven't seen her at the photos from the courtyard.

And it looks like Sofia has now been raised to full family member status even though she's not even married yet !

I see there no rivalry between Madeleine and Sofia as media had many times reported. I found it very sweet to see Sofia with Leonore on her arms.

I think it is only fair that she be considered as such; it is only a few weeks to the wedding now.

Have any plans for HM's 70th birthday been released? Will there be a big celebration with international royal attendees, as is usually the case in Denmark?

I do not know if there is any rivalry or not, the Swedish gossip press seems to excell in making things up so let's assume they lie yet again. However a few moments in public won't reveal much about it. They are all adults and I am sure they can behave IF there would be any friction. Fabiola and Paola did it for 5 decades .

Leonore just wanted to get down. It's always good to see the kids just wanting to play and the royals don't mind allowing everyone to see that. Although, I would've handed her over to her nanny and let the church roll on.

The girls are very cute, Leonore was maybe a bit young to be at such an event. It was very sweet to see her stretch her arms out to Sofia, she was more at peace in her arms than Madeleine's!
