Yes, the lonely princess. It reminds me of the iconic picture of Diana at the Taj Mahal in India.

Looking at the Live Coverage. I'm amazed on how beautiful Sweden is. Looks like a great place to live.

Might be. Might also be that she is tired. That was my impression.

Estelle waved cheerfully when she was in the arms of her parents in Strandvägen.

Royalista article with pic of Estelle looking adorable: Princess Estelle wishes her countrymen a great National Day | Royalista

As much as I enjoy seeing pics of Estelle in her finest I would also very much like to see her thoroughly dirty.
Those of us who have children know from experience that there is no spot on a small child, no matter how inaccessible, that cannot become muddy!
That is a picture I'd like to see.

A great pic of Bella, not being the least bit charmed by the eels and crabs: https://da-dk.facebook.com/tv2nyhede...16038315078473

Very cool to see Sofia's first national day- she looked to be having a lot of fun with it.

I almost wish they had arranged the group photo differently though- as is, it just emphasizes that Chris isn't there.

Maybe all the men at the back and all women at the front or something like that would have been more tactful.

General mood? Or just telling a story, perhaps?

Thanks to all who shared photos of National Day. It's great to see the RF together though I wonder why Princess Leonore was absent (Chris's absence didn't surprise me), as she often attends events like this and attended her first National Day last year.

It's nice to see Prince Carl Philip and Sofia in a carriage with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. She seems to be quite close to Princess Estelle and Princess Leonore as she was sitting near Estelle at her marriage banns IIRC, and held Leonore at a recent family event.

There is a men's version of the Swedish national dress, but IIRC it has never been worn by the royal men. But a Swedish member could correct me if I'm wrong as I've only been following the family since 2011.

Agree with your post. Chris has his own career and as he will most likely drop everything to be with Princess Madeleine when she goes into labor, he like most people has to plan which event he is able to take time of for. I can only imagine the comments if he would not be working and just spend his days in Stockholm and participating in royal events. That worked for Princess Lilian, it will not work for Chris.

I totally agree with you. Why should the Swedish people care if he attends or not, we don't even know him. And that is the way he wants it. This is probably ju another story that is going way out of proportion so that the newspapers could sell some additional issues. But yes, the press department could handle this better.

Ok is the reason Sofia's head is uncovered because she's unmarried?

I notice, Maddie and Victoria and the Queen have covered heads.

Yes, that's correct. Traditionally a woman started to cover her head at time of marriage. Before that her head was uncovered and she had her loose or in braids. There's even a local tradition from my part of Sweden where the mother-in-law cut the hair of the bride before putting the headdress on her.

Thanks! Neat tradition (assuming you wanted short hair) of the MIL cutting the new bride's hair.

Correct, that's a tradition going back to the Viking Age and probably before even then: https://app.box.com/s/pwlr6c0ht2ktyoii4t51
As a little curiosum: The women depicted here would probably have looked a little more masculine in the body-build, according to recent findings.

I bet Madeleine may have attended several dinners or events in New York connected with Chris' business or clients. Why can't Chris support her occasionally in important events related to her job as a princess of Sweden ?

Chris has left Madeleine alone in Sweden since April (supposedly to find "accomodation"in London even though he's actually planning to live at one of his mother's properties). As far as we know, he's not commuting between London and Stockholm to attend to his heavily pregnant wife and his infant daughter. And now there are rumors he is actually moving out of Sweden to avoid disclosing his tax returns. Quite frankly, that doesn't good to me.

As for Madeleine, I commend her sense of duty to king and country. Other women in her condition would have avoided today's celebrations, but she insisted on attending, however umcomfortable that might have been to her, to fulfill her obligations as a royal princess. Too bad her husband couldn't find the time to stand by her.
