Svensk Damtidning's reporter Helena Wiklund talked with king Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, Victoria and Daniel on Victoria's birthday at Solliden about the summer of the royal family.

Victoria and Daniel's Summer of Love
Summer at Solliden, it means time with the family! No wonder Victoria always longs to be here! Because now she and Daniel fill themselves with strength, energy and love. We meet a lovely relaxed crown princess couple. Victoria and Daniel hold on eachother and smile.
- As anyone else I appreciate to get this time with the family. It is summer and you are free and it is fantastic, says Victoria.
And Daniel tells that the royal holiday has been really fine.
- Yes, it has been very good! Just perfect!
These hot July days at the bathhouse and their house Villa Skönvik. Estelle, Oscar and all cousins (not the youngest) at the pool together. Daniel is used to take an early round at the golf course or a jogging trip at Alvaret with Victoria. Sometimes there are also cycling trips to Borgholm and Estelle and Oscar get their Piggelins at the kiosk at the market.
The king's favourite place at Solliden is the stone garden, it is his special oasis and he and queen Silvia sit there often in the evenings. There are a lot of butterflies at Solliden and Estelle loves to catch them for a short while and let them then fly again.
In the evenings the family often gathers to a dinner at the bathhouse.
Queen Silvia tells to Wiklund that she longs to just sit and have a nice time. Together with the family and friends. And the small ones!
What are you doing together in the summer?
- Everything what small children like to do. But the most important is to get some time which is not so strictly programmed, so that you can be together and take the time as it comes, says the queen.
And what the king does on a usual day here at Solliden?
- I don't sit still at all. I don't lie on a chair and read a book. I tried once last year... , says the king.
- He is all over the place! queen Silvia says.
- Estelle is also with and peddles. It is also relaxation!
The king makes a tour at the park every day. He has often a new project going on. And the queen tells that she spends a lot of time with her fuchsias.
- They have always been here, queen Victoria loved them. You shall place fuchsias so that you really see them, my uncle in Brazil taught me that. You should be able to look at them from below, then they are most beautiful and you see all the colours in them.

Helena Wiklund writes also about Victoriagolfen, with some photos of Daniel. Daniel's interview is the same I have written here previously. Svensk Damtidning was one of the sponsors at the event and hosted a tent with soft drinks, coffee and strawberries and chocolate at hole 18. And issues of Svensk Damtidning of course. Frida Stålmarck hosted at the tent and tells that it was happy and nice atmosphere at the tent and many thought that the coffee and chocolate saved the day. And almost everyone asked "Has the prince been here yet?".
Johan T Lindwall, the editor in chief of Svensk Damtidning, says:
- Once a again, what a success! This shows what a strong brand Svensk Damtidning is, both in a castle and hut. I'm proud and happy about to meet all this warmth from both the royals and our readers.

Photos are blurry but you can see that they had friends with them. I think Leonie Persson so I suspect that is Karl-Johan and their daughter with them.

Estelle's beautiful summer holiday
Estelle is curious about everything her mother does, and follows interested everything what is happening. Queen Silvia tells that Estelle likes to be with her in the garden, she seems to share the queen's interest in flowers. She has already started to read and write and Victoria tells that Estelle can hardly wait for the school to begin on 21st August.

Such sweet anecdotes about little Estelle. I remember the photos of her and Oscar with the tulip from early spring; it's nice to see her have an interest in flowers - I reckon that her pre-school is a factor of her interest in nature as IIRC it was based outdoors.
So cute to hear that she's looking forward into going to school! I'm sure she'll do wonderfully there. Can't wait to see her first day photos.

Victoria, Daniel and children visited Bergmancenter on Fårö off north of Gotland on Wednesday 25th July. At least the press tells that Victoria was on Gotland with her family. At the photo Victoria, Daniel and Oscar.

I like the fact that Princess Estelle appreciates flowers. It is wonderful when young children can find happiness and pleasure in the beautiful creations of the outdoors.

Expressen's Extra lists places on Öland where you can meet Victoria and the royal family during the summer:
Sandviks Fisk och Hamnkök
It's almost a tradition that the royal family once in the summer sails to Sandvik and has lunch at Sandviks Fisk och Hamnkök
Karin Franssons restaurant, Borgholm
The best restaurant on the island. Here the royal family has eaten many times, and this summer Daniel came there with his friends. But due to their age Karin and her husband are closing the restaurant in the end of the year.
Q5 gas station
Daniel usually comes with his Lexus to this gas station.
Ormöga camel ranch
Another royal favourite, it is said that Estelle has visited here many times. The biggest camel farm in the Nordic countries, there are also a lot of other animals, such as pigs and goats.
Ekerum Golf Resort
Here Daniel is playing golf.
Glasscafeet, Borgholm
Has the most luxurious and best glass on Öland.
Bomans torghandel, Borgholm
Best strawberries in the town! Here it is not strange at all to get behind queen Silvia in a queue.
Borgholm Castle ruins
Here the royal family attends at concerts during the summer.

The king delivered the prizes in the afternoon.

When the enthusiast vehicle exhibition in Lindallén at Solliden was arranged for the fourth time, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia also attended. They were seen walking among the exhibition vehicles and the king also delivered the prizes today.
A special corner was also set up for some royal vehicles, where one could see two of the king's cars as well as Prince Carl Philip's crosscart and Crown Princess Victoria's box car, Victoria's moped and even the moped that the king had as Crown Prince.
The day ended with a novelty, namely that all exhibitors drove in a cortege with the king and the queen in the lead, in his AC Cobra. The cortege went from Solliden along Princess Estelles promenad (formerly Strandvägen), Hamnvägen, Sandgatan, Tullgatan and up along Storgatan before it was dissolved.

- We usually have a little summer greeting, but I can not say the situation with which pictures it is. Without that, we will publish when an opportunity is given, says Thorgren.
According to Thorgren, it is still uncertain when the photos will be shared with the Swedish people.
- I can not say that right yet. There are some things around that which make that we look over the appropriate occasion. But it will not be in the next few days.
Most of the royal family is at Solliden to enjoy the lovely and warm Swedish summer. And according to Margareta Thorgren, everyone in the family feel good - both big and small.

The family gathered on 16 July to film bits for Året med Kungafamiljen so I imagine a photo would be taken that day.

I wonder if Christina or her brother ever took part in their grandfather's Italian archaeological excavations? I know that their cousins Margrethe and Michael did so.

Victoria and Estelle were yesterday at Gröna Lund Amusement Park with Victoria's good friend Caroline Dinkelspiel and her two sons.

Annika Troselius, information manager at Gröna Lund, tells that the visit of the royals came as a pleasant surprise.
- They came unannounced, and were here privately. They bought a wristband and stood in line for the attractions like any other visitor. It is quite common for you to take a little trip to Gröna Lund before school starts, to load and have some fun before everyday life starts again.
Annika Troselius says that they seem to have had a nice day and that Gröna Lund did not have to call any extra security because they had princesses in the park.
- No, they seemed to melt well among our other visitors. Everything went very calm and nice.
While Estelle and her friends went to carousels, Victoria and Caroline Dinkelspiel were talking. Caroline is one of Victoria's oldest and absolute closest friends and she was one of those who supported the Crown Princess most when she was suffering from eating disorders and left Sweden for the United States. Caroline then went with Victoria and they lived together in the same family in the US during this tough year.
Last year Caroline's father-in-law passed away and now Victoria is there to comfort her loyal friend.
Victoria, Caroline and the children were mostly at the so-called "little area" in the park, where there is the popular carousel "Flying Elephants". Estelle went for a ride around!

Maybe Estelle in the future will marry one of Caroline's sons?


I am just joking.
