It's great that GEN-PEP takes part in the Open Palace.
From the program:
Come on, all children and adolescents! Meet Generation PEP at the Inner courtyard and try out funny activities with project manager Carolina Klüft and other exciting guests. The Crown Princess couple is the initiator of the organization Generation PEP which, together with actors from the whole society, operates long-term public health work with children and young people in focus.
For the children
Activities for children with organization Generation PEP at the Inner courtyard with a fenced mini-football field (soft balls and nets), an information tent and an obstacle course for the youngest.

This year's National Day celebrations at Görväln will have a royal visit. The Crown Princess couple will attend the celebration. In March, Järfälla's Municipal Director contacted the Royal Court to ask if they could attend the celebration and now the schedule is ready.
Why would they celebrate in just Järfälla?
- The Crown Princess has been in the municipality earlier, and at Görväln especially which she thinks is a very nice place. Then Järfälla is a municipality where there is a lot of things going on and many move there, says Leo Plöen, communications officer at Järfälla municipality.
The Crown Princess couple get there at 11.45 and they plan to stay for about an hour. At 12.30, the Crown Princess will also give a speech from the stage.
Will they have time to mingle with the people of Järfälla?
- It is Säpo which estimates that. But they will be able to sit and enjoy the show like everyone else.
Have you done any special preparations for them to come?
- No, not really. The event was planned before it was clear they would come.
Därför kommer kronprinsessan till Görväln

National Day Greeting from the Royal Family, via princess Estelle and prince Oscar. Photos have been taken by photographer Erika Gerdemark at the yard of Haga Palace. They have obviously been taken on the same day as the new photos of Victoria.

Very lovely photos of Estelle and Oscar. The scenery looks especially beautiful. I don't know why but I had little hope that perhaps this year we will see photos of all five grandchildren together, but alas no luck :(

I also think that the Swedish men should wear national costume just like ladies wear theirs!

The Marshal of the Realm, Svante Lindqvist, told at his speech that Daniel should also visit GEN-PEP's activities at the Inner Courtyard later today.

The king and queen arrived to Kronoberg County and Kosta Boda

This year Carl Philip came out from the gates and then the gates were open. So he didn't open them traditionally.

I agree. I also think (and I suppose I'm the sole human being on this planet) that it's incredibly boring that it's only Estelle (and now Oscar) every single year. I simply don't care for them.
Hopefully a little alternation will occur in the years to come. There are more grandchildren around (of course also depending on the coverage the other parents want for their children, I understand that).

I think the focus is on Estelle and Oscar is that Estelle is a future queen (fifth queen regnant in Sweden's history) and Oscar is third in line to the throne. There's little chance the other children (Leonore, Nicholas, Alexander and Baby Bernadotte-Hellquivst no. 2) would ever ascend; therefore, there's less focus on them.

As a Finn, I was incredibly touched about Victoria's speech. She said at her speech:
"Just a few days ago, our neighbor Finland celebrated 100 years of independence. Finland and Sweden have strong ties historically. Very many Swedes have their roots in Finland. Here in Järfälla, more than every tenth inhabitant has a connection with Finland.
Due to the Finnish anniversary year, I participated a couple of months ago in a wreath laying ceremony at the Finnish monument in Stockholm. There I met some of the surviving Swedish veterans who participated as volunteers in the Finnish Winter War 1939-1940. It was a meeting that made a great impression on me - those soon 100 years old Swedes, who once asked the question "What can I do to help?"
For them, the answer was to join as volunteers in Finland in the war. Others donated money or made civilian efforts. Many chose to open their homes for one of the 70,000 Finnish children who came to Sweden during the war years. Children who often could not speak a word Swedish. Children who brought an address tag around their neck".

The king's speech
H.M. Konungens tal i Växjö på Nationaldagen, tisdag den 6 juni 2017 - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

The sun welcomed Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel to the National Day celebration in Järfälla. They arrived at Görväln Castle just after half past twelve and were welcomed by several thousand people who were celebrating the national day in the castle park. Several children ran to the Crown Princess couple when they arrived and left presents in the form of drawings.
Then Victoria and Daniel sat and listened to several musical performances, including a children's choir from the Iljansbodaskolan and Kolarängskolan.
Victoria and Daniel applauded the children who sang from the scene.
In her speech, Victoria also talked about how Sweden responded to the terror attach at Drottninggatan in April.
- Terror aims to create fear and fragmentation. But the Swedes responded by showing courage and cohesion. We should remember that and be proud of today, on Sweden's National day.
After her speech, Victoria went down from the stage and sat next to Prince Daniel. They jointly sang the national anthem together with the people.
After that, students at Järfälla Gymnasium performed Syrian music, something that seemed to be appreciated by Victoria and Daniel, who both seemed to like the music.
