Yes, I was thinking the same. And everyone is smiling - except the king.

One long Christmas tradition stops this Christmas. Princess Christina and her family have traditionally spent the Christmas Eve with the royal family at Drottningholm. But princess Christina told to Svensk Damtidning, that the families have grown so big that they are spending Christmas just with their family, not in Drottningholm.

That's a bit sad but very understandable. I come from a large extended family and it's been many years since we last celebrated Christmas together. There's many people and then there's too many people. If the Christmas traditions in Sweden are similar to the Danish ones, I reckon that the King's family and Princess Christina's family will see each other in the days following Christmas Eve.

Expressen's royal reporter Johan T Lindwall told yesterday at a live interview, that according to his sources, Madeleine and Chris will spend the Christmas Eve with Chris' mother in London, Carl Philip will go to Sofia's family in Älvdalen. And Victoria and Daniel are spending Christmas with Daniel's family either at the Haga Palace or in Ockelbo, yesterday it looked like they shall be celebrating Christmas at Haga. Princess Christina is celebrating Christmas with her family. This Christmas the members of the swedish royal family are creating new traditions for Christmas, like in Norway (Haakon and Mette-Marit are not celebrating Christmas with the king and queen) or Denmark, where Mary and Frederik for the first time are celebrating Christmas with their family, not with the Queen and prince Henrik.
Everything points to that Madeleine and Chris will fly from London back to New York and she will give birth there.

Victoria and Daniel celebrated the Christmas with Daniel's family in Ockelbo already in 2011.

This year the whole royal family attends at the Advent church service at the Royal Chapel on Wednesday. On previous years the court hasn't published photos of this event.

Victoria and Estelle received the Christmas Trees to the Royal Palaces from Royal College of Forestry's student union, this is a long tradition.
The second photo is HQ, by clicking.
Kronprinsessan och Prinsessan Estelle tog emot granar - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

One of the students tells at Facebook
"At 09:15, we were let in to the Palace courtyard, in the car were seven fine trees of varying size and type. Victoria would meet us in the east of the vault where the trees would be left over. The photos taken there are unfortunately not allowed to be published on the internet but only for private use. So before Victoria came we had time to take photos and talk with Lennart who told us how it is to work as a porter at the Palace. Seems like a fun job!
When the clock struck half came Crown Princess Victoria and beside her was Estelle to our happiness. We got all greet the Crown Princess and Estelle was very pleased with her little princess tree that we brought to her. The meeting went fast but it was a very cool experience, both to meet Victoria and Estelle. But even to get into the Palace. This is something we all who were there will remember for a long time!"

The lunch for the court staff is traditionally after the Advent church service. According to the swedish press the seating order will always be drawn at the beginning of the lunch. No one knows before where they will sit and anyone could get to sit beside the king, queen, Victoria, Daniel...

Victoria is teaching by example how to be a lady as a person and as a royal.

Lovely! However, I am disappointed that Estelle is sporting her mother's severe hair style.

Estelle has a bubbling personality and I like their original and not at all stiff way of approaching the media!
