On another note, I'm sure that this has been said before several times in the thread, but I wish that the males in the Swedish royal family would also participate in wearing Swedish national costume and not leave it to the women/girls in the family. Did previous Kings and Princes wear such costumes on the National Day?
I agree.
There are pictures of a young Carl Philip in national costume

I think they should as well. At least when they are young, like Oscar in the picture with Estelle in her national costume

Estelle is coming to the concert for the first time! Oscar has been taken to the car to a way home. Usually it has been the Westlings who have followed the cortege in a car and taken Estelle home.

Exciting for Oscar...

Concert's host Anne Lundberg said to the public before the royal family arrived:
- A little bird whispered to my ear that maybe, maybe princess Estelle will be among the audience for the first time. It is always fun when there are children in the audience.

Premiere for the little princess! Now the royal family is in place at Skansen - but who is that whom we see at the bottom of the right hand corner? It is Princess Estelle who makes national debut in the TV-broadcasted celebration from Skansen!

Oh, that 12-year-old boy who sang was so cute. And court singer Elin Rombo, she sings so beautifully. And Estelle singing the National Anthem.

The performers of the Skansen concert are also invited to the reception, here John Lundvik.

Now the Tapto starts, one of absolute highlights of the evening for me.

I like that Sofia also started wearing the traditional shoes. Victoria has always worn them, as far as I can remember. I very much prefer those than Madeleines high heels.

Thank you very one for the wonderful pictures from the National Day. It was great seeing the picture of Oscar smiling with Estelle but I noticed that Prince Oscar and the King have the same grumpy expression most of the time. I guess after the radiant Princess Estelle everyone looks a little grumpy, I swear that little girl was sprinkled with fairy dust when she was born, she is such a delightful child!!

Helena Persson won the Prince Gustaf Adolf's Memorial Jumping in Strömsholm, a 1.45 jumping with the first prize is SEK 20,000. Victoria presented the Trophy to Helena Persson.

Finnish Vocal Folk Hop Group performed to Victoria and Daniel in Strömsholm
"Yesterday our band TUULETAR - Vocal Folk Hop had a pleasure to perform in Strömsholm for the Swedish Royals, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel on a Swedish National Day and I got to use words "Your royal highness" for the first time in my life when doing a short speech in Swedish on the behalf of Tuuletar! It was a opening ceremony for show-jumping Competition that had turned 100 years old. After our performance we also got a permission to meet and greet the Royals who were taken of our music and congratulated of our success.

Sad I almost missed this. I always love photos of this event. I do think that if the women have to, the men should wear traditional garb.

Love Estelle. She always makes me smile at these events

It looks as if Estelle enjoyed her first national day concert, it was really nice to see her attend - I love the capes that the family were wearing.
The photo of Estelle and Oscar is adorable, I particularly love the way Estelle has her arm around her younger brother. She seems to be a very caring older sister.

Victoria said in her speech in Strömsholm among other things:
I can imagine that it was just the expectation that my grandfather, Prince Gustaf Adolf, felt when he started 90 years ago at the army riding and driving school here at Strömsholm.
A place where people have worked with horses since Gustav Vasa's time. And where we have today opened the first horse museum in the Nordic region!
For almost a whole year my grandfather spent here, as a student of what was called "Long Course". Here he got an intensive education in various riding disciplines - and, of course, many opportunities to compete.
For a horse-interested 22 year old, it must have been pure dream (...)
Just like at my grandfather's day, Strömsholm is currently populated by people who are passionate about horses and equestrian sports. I think it had been a pleasure for him to see that the tradition continues so strongly.
Because it does! And not only here, but throughout our country.
Riding is today Sweden's second largest youth sport and one of the largest sports for people with disabilities. It is open to boys and girls, men and women, younger and older on equal terms. This is one of the few sports where participants compete in the same classes regardless of gender or age.(...)
Sweden today is a country of peace, prosperity and democracy.
A country where everyone has access to our nature.
A country where fundamental rights and freedoms are respected.
All of this has characterized Sweden for a long time. It has formed us living here and it's really not that weird if we take it for granted.
It does not change the fact that it's a big advantage to live right here and right now.
Let's value that benefit! Let's celebrate it. Today - and every other day.
Thank you to all who are here today for your dedication. And thanks for your help to make your national day a nice feast.
I wish you all the joy of celebrating our Sweden! Thank You!

King Carl Gustaf said in his speech in Skansen among other things:
We all have a place in Sweden where we feel the most at home, where we can say that "This - it's my Sweden!".
Today, I would like to say something about a place in our country that is particularly close to my heart. And it is actually where we are at the moment: Skansen, and the surrounding Royal Djurgården, here in Stockholm.(...)
I remember how exciting it was to come here when I was little. How I walked around looked at the animals and at different cultural buildings. And I already knew that this was my country, my Sweden, that I wanted to live and work in.

It is nice when royals address their ancestors and history, especially royals like Prince Gustaf Adolf who are discussed less often.

Those are interesting facts. I thought riding was an expensive sport, but at the same time it is true that it is not as unequal with respect to sex, age, and disability as most other sporting activities.
