Here are some additional pictures, including some of Estelle with a dog. Estelle's tiny shoes match her dress so adorably.

Looking at some of the pictures with Estelle in them - I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who gets this silly soppy look on their face when she's around!

In connection with the king's 40 years on the throne, at Royal Dramatic Theatre (Dramaten) on the 23rd of November.
For the environment of the times
Actor, experts and establishment in an open dialogue about our future.
This year King Carl XVI Gustaf celebrates forty years as regent. The anniversary commemorated in a different show at the Royal Dramatic Theatre on November 23, starting with the King's interest and involvement in nature and environmental issues. It will be a journey through forty years of environmental issues - from a dazed awakening in the 1970s to today's global climate conferences. A meeting between art and science which talks, plays and musical elements are interspersed with clips from the TV archives. And where we are constantly looking to the future.
The show takes place in the presence of the king and queen.

According to Svensk Damtidning, queen Silvia held a very good and tender speech for the king at the private lunch on Sunday 15th. The king took queen Margrethe to the table and queen Silvia king Harald.

Great and a little different photos, taken by an amateur photographer, who got very close to the royal family. I found these from Fotosidan-website. First there are great photos of the people of Stockholm celebrating - scroll down and there will be lots of photos of the royal family. Click photos to get them bigger.

Estelle is cute, but judging from the pics she comes across as quite bossy and spoilt, used to far too much attention within the family as an only child. I hope that she will have one or two siblings soon to set things straight, the same way it worked for Victoria as well.

I think it was a great idea to celebrate the 40 th jubilee mostly with the people: the county visits all year and finishing with that "party for the people" on the palace grounds. The king and his PR team got it right, Simply brilliant.

Nice pics. And, finally, I found out who the guy in that unbelievable plaid suit was - Pekka Heino! Does he always wear such outlandish outfits?!?!?

How has the king done his work?
SVT news interviewed on Friday Henrik S Järrel from the Royalist Association, deputy chairman Anna Steele from the Republican Association and PR-professional Birger Östberg.

Järrel says he sees the king as a quite modern monarch. As a king he should promote Sweden abroad, he should be a good representant for a little country in Sweden, their people, culture and history. Steele says that when spoken about the king, she thinks all the pomp, all the scandals, parties and a very fine speech after Tsunami. Birger Östberg says that the most positive thing as a promotor for the king is that he is the king. To be a monarch raises interest in many countries.
But how the king is doing as a marketer of Sweden?
Östberg says: oldfashioned, conservative and feels very old.
The reporter says that maybe that is why the king has lost popularity. But there is also another family member who has come to the stage. Östberg says that he thinks that Victoria is seen as much more modern than the king. And he thinks that it is modernity which is really important if you are supposed to market Sweden, because the business life and tourism in Sweden want to be connect to modernity.
According to Östberg there can be another reason why the king has it difficult to promote Sweden: the king's poor management with the media is so comprehensive that Östberg thinks that more and more people are almost ashamed of the king we have in Sweden. And that is a big problem for brand Sweden.
About the abdications in the Netherlands and Belgium, Järrel says that the Bernadottes haven't a tradition to abdicate. But a thought about crown princess Victoria at the throne, frightens one and another republican. Steele from the Republican Association says that Victoria seems very sympathetic and hard-working, and they would have it more difficult to carry through their thoughts if Victoria would be the Queen.

How can any child receive too much attention from their parents?

In every picture I've ever seen of her, she has been behaving in a charmingly appropriate manner. No melt-downs, no hissy fits, no tantrums- remarkable for a 1 1/2 year old baby to be so good at high-profile structured events.

I disagree as well; she seems quite curious and interested in what happens around her; she seems to feel quite self-confident for her age, but that is an asset. I think Daniel particularly cares for that.

I would not be surprised that V&D investigate how she can best be made familiar with public appearances as soon as possible. I think everything evolves softly.
I hope however she will get at least one sibling. I would not be surprised that it is recommended, in their situation, to have a certain difference in age with a next child, which would establish in a clear and natural way that she is the eldest, and therefore the heir, since I guess that idea will inevitably be floating around in the family relationship.

The cover of newest Kungliga magasinet. If this is a real photo and not a photo montage, photographer Rickard Eriksson has got a jackpot. A photo like this hasn't been seen at the photos from Sunday 15th.

I disagree. To me, she comes across as friendly, curious, and full of personality. Of course her family loves her and showers her with attention: she's smart, sweet, and obviously is already a little charmer. She IS the only child in the family right now, but she definitely has a younger cousin on the way and will probably have at least one younger sibling come along sooner or later.

OMG!! I'm w/you on that one LadyFinn. I really hope that's not photoshopped because we've been waiting a good long time for a picture like this. Awesome find!!

As for Estelle being spoiled...Considering who said it, why am I not surprised!?! Consider the source and then do what I did a few years ago and put it on ignore. You are only giving him what he wants, a reaction and derailing the thread.

Although, I did get a good laugh out of his antics this time. Of all the Royal Children to call spoiled...ROTFLOL!!

I am really really excited by that picture- I really hope it is not photoshopped!!

As for Estelle being spoiled- I think she is loved a lot. I also think that they may treat her differently when she is out in front of the cameras because they don't want her to have a melt down- which would cause her to draw more attention. I have not seen anything that sticks out to me as her being spoiled- she is a little kid who is curious.
