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 agree - This is a National Day celebration, and right now, the King is still on the throne so the focus should still be on the King’s family, hence his three kids & five grandkids should participate and be recognized.
When Victoria ascends the throne, then all the focus can be switched to her family only.

Today is the National Day celebration, an official celebration. The royal couple and crown princess couple are the official representants of the royal family. The king's birthday is more a family celebration, that is the day when the other grandchildren could be seen if they are "on the mood".

TV4 has also a live-TV of the cortege

All members of the royal house- (King, Queen, Victoria, Daniel, Carl Philip, Sofia, and Madeleine) are official representatives of the realm, what differs among them are the number of engagements carried out.

I agree with other posters, who would have liked to see the other kids, pictures at least, always seeing Estelle, and Oscar only, is incredibly boring, and at this stage all the kids have the same rank- grand kids of the King, HRH's, princes/esses, and dukes/duchesses. Maybe things will change as they grow up, but one group picture would have been nice

Barbro Hultman, a royal expert who has been a journalist and also worked at the royal court and is quite close to the royal family (and has written the book "I den kungliga kulissen), pointed just out at Expressen's live studio, that the royal court/family doesn't do anything by chance, everything is planned. That is why there aren't any other grandchildren than Estelle at the cortege. Hultman said that Estelle will be trained differently than the other grandchildren, it has already been seen many times that that she can handle these kind of situations and the court doesn't want anyone to take the attention from her, because she is the heir to the heir.

We can also see how the royal court emphasizes the role and work of Victoria and Daniel, and here is a good indication of it
From the court Instagram, the Royal Family poses with GEN-PEP staff before they left to Skansen.

I don't think it is boring to see only Estelle who will be the next queen of Sweden after her mother and Oscar whio is third in the list of sucession, they are more important than the other grandchildren of the king even if they have the same age.
They are the future of the monarchy and they are the children of the crown princess.

Thanks for providing this information :)!! as always you provide a lot of information to this forum, but still if they couldn't attend the cortege one picture would have been very welcome. However....if they are training her to believe she's more important than other people, already at the age of 5, then, God help her, and her reign

TBH I don't like how Gen-Pep seem to have hijacked this years open palace, (thats how it looked on the internet at least)

GEN-PEP is a non-profit organisation which of course has the right to promote their activity. They have social media and use it to get more people to work to that all children and young people in Sweden should have the ability and desire to live an active and healthy life. Of course they use an event like this to show photos of their work.

Barbro Hultman told at the studio previously today, that coffee is sold at the courtyard at Open Palace and when she was still working, the income was donated to Crown princess Victoria's Fund.

I don't get the whole issue with the kids. Oscar was too young for the carriage, not hard to think Alexander wouldn't go either. As for photos, Victoria and Daniel chose to release pictures. I doubt anyone stopped the other couples. Alex is a bit young and he wouldn't be in costume anyways. Leonor wpuld be cute, but maybe her parents wanted to keep private. They do release photos. Since neither Sofia or Alex were at the gates like last year, perhaps he was ill. Or just not in mood to be on show.

I find it funny people have such a problem with focus on Estelle. Thinking she will be spoiled or something. Yet I hear none of this on British boards. I never see Williams cousins being defended, saying they should be treated equally. Or George being spoiled as treated differently then other great grandkids. I believe the words we should just be lucky they appear on balcony. I don't see a call for martga Louise's kids to get treated the same as Haakon, or the kids of the infantas, or so on. Not sure why Sweden any different.


Okay that aside, great photos. Estelle sure is a little star. Happy to see all the adults. Great happy day for the country.

Estelle was at the cortege in 2013, she was only a week older than Oscar is now. She attended then also at the opening of the Open Palace. But she Victoria's first child and her heir.
Last year the court told at the program of the day that Carl Philip and Sofia would open the gates to the Open Palace. They decided to take Alexander there too. This year at the program was told that Carl Philip would open the gates alone.

I mentioned Alex being there last year. And noted Sofia wasn't at the gate either. Suggested one or both wasn't feeling up to it.

Not all babies are the same. Just becayse Estelle was able to handle carriages at that age, doesn't mean Oscar or Alexander would. If Alex wasn't up for the gate earlier all the more reason not to push carriage.

My point being, it seems only in Sweden do people think it's a snub to the other kids, and Estelle will be spoiled due to it. No problem of such treatment with other royal families.

Obviously Chris came later to the Royal Palace, because he isn't at the group photo with the GEN-PEP staff.

Ebba Kleberg von Sydow at her blog:
"Johan then thought I was completely crazy when I wanted to go down to Djurgårdsbron and wave to the royals. He gladly stayed at home and fixed the food. Hanna and I took the 6-year-olds and there was a long wait (just over 20 minutes is long for a 6 year old) before the horses and carriages finally arrived on Strandvägen with waving princes and princesses. Kind Prince Daniel saw us standing there at the front and hinted to Victoria and Estelle, who waved happily to us. Oh! The girls became very happy: "Mom, Mom - Estelle Waved To Us"! And yes, my daughter can name all the princes and princesses. It may be because I read Svensk Damtidning aloud for breakfast on Wednesdays at home - and of course, for all TV broadcasts I have done and about which she has heard a lot of talk at home.
