I was eager to see what this gorgeous family would be up to this year, and now I've go my treat! Estelle is a charming little girl and I can't wait to see the new baby soon!

This is all very promising though, I hope they will also release a new family photo like the one they did last year. That one was very nice.

They are baking tunnbröd. A quite thin bread (you can see that Estelle is having problems with the thin bread doe) usually made of rye grain. It's still common that people in the contryside (like where I grew up) bake their own bread in the villages bakers cottage.

It was quite clear that they would publish the greeting today, because today there are no work events at the calendar. Wonderful greeting on this year too! I love that Estelle is so brisk and energetic.
A beautiful video What a nice idea to make a video and not just publish a photo. The Estelle adorable with energy do it everything.

Aw, what an adorable video! Estelle is so precious. She seemed to enjoy breaking the bread.

Can any of our Swedish speaking members translate what was being said by the family in the video (or at least give a rough guide)? I unfortunately don't understand or speak much Swedish so am curious.

Thank you for sharing this info, it was interesting to read.

The video is so sweet. Estelle is a little star, so comfortable and poised in front of the camera.

Carl Philip and Sofia are, in position, closer to Victoria and Daniel than Madeleine and Christopher so there might be a chance that they will also start a tradition and that will cause the alternation.
Not saying it will happen, just that I think it would be nice.
This is the Crown Princess family and Estelle and her new sibling are in a special category from the other children. It is important that the Crown Princess and the next heir is featured prominently to keep the Royal family and future regents in peoples minds.

Victoria is joking that it is finally snowing when she shakes the flour over the table and Estelle.
Daniel is a bit worried if his bread will become good.
Estelle says: Daddy, I think it is very cozy/snugly (mysigt)
Daniel says: Yes, it is cozy. I agree with you.
Victoria helps Estelle because her dough gets stuck.
The woman asks Victoria if she needs any help and Victoria shows her a piece of Estelle's dough that needs to be taken care of.
Estelle turns to the cameras and wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Daniel then asks Estelle if she wants to bake some more, and Estelle wants that very much.

Estelle is so adorable- and seems well adjusted and very loved. I like this little family so much and can't wait to see pictures of their new addition in a few months.

Thanks for the translation but there is no need to translate the wonderful love and joy surrounding that little family. Estelle is so confident her parents have done a superb job in raising her. Can't wait for the new baby

The first I am perfectly aware of. The second I disagree because people truly won't forget who the future regents will be, would a case of a little less prominent featuring ever occur. People aren't that oblivious.
I realize I am in the major minority, but that field's also gotta be filled. It makes for a good dispersion.

Thank you very much for the translation!
Victoria and her family are so warm and down to earth, it's lovely to see. And it will be wonderful next Christmas as we will get to see Victoria's second child too; it will be so adorable to see the interactions between Estelle and her younger sibling.
It is also nice that Estelle gets to experience things that other Swedish children would, despite her position in society. But it seems that most modern royal parents want their children to have the most normal life as possible. It's good that they are being introduced to more normal experiences and don't have an "exclusively royal life" anymore like royal children did in the past.

Thanks for the translation, LadyFinn. The video is lovely even without knowing what they are saying, because the warmth and closeness of their little family is obvious. I love these Christmas videos they release.

At first I thought they were making pizzas. I reckon that oven would do the job nicely. (And now I want a pizza for lunch.)

Carl Philip and Sofia arrived to "Jul i Vasastan" (Christmas in Vasastan) -concert at the Gustaf Vasa Church. They attended at this concert also last year, then there was collected money for Project Playground. But obviously this year they attend because their friend singer Molly Sandén is one of the performers, like last year too. The others are tenor Fredrik Benedict Nybladh and violinist Linda Lampenius, who both have performed at the charity events for Project Playground, like Molly Sandén.

There was also Gladys del Pilar, who has also performed at the events of Project Playground.
