^^^^^ What an absolute treat. I bet they never thought they would see Victoria, Daniel, Estelle and Oscar scarfing their pizzas and dessert on their terrace let alone so quickly. 🍰

Allt om kungligt tells that an eyewitness saw Carl Philip and Sofia jogging at 8.30 in the morning on Gotland the other day. They ran on Visborgsslätt just south of Visby and just north of Kneippbyn which is a popular destination for families with children. There is both camping, water park and especially Pippi Longstocking Villa Villerkulla.
Princess Sofia ran in black tights, a black t-shirt and a black cap. She was wearing headphones and even the prince had a cap on her head.
- You could really see that they enjoyed the beautiful nature and surroundings, while at the same time kept a good pace. I noticed that they had no bodyguards with them, says Allt om Kungligt's eyewitness.
Carl Philip and Sofia's presence on Gotland coincides with the famous "Stockholm Week" in Visby when thousands of young people come to the island to party.

They went also to a glass bar in Visby with their sons. Someone asked if she could take a photo and published it later at Facebook.

Allt om kungligt reveals that the Crown Princess family bought an exclusive motorboat which is perfect for families with children.

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are currently enjoying summer holidays at Solliden Castle in Öland. After a spring full of work with lots of traveling, the young family recharges the batteries at the summer palace in which Victoria is so fond of.
And now the family has decided that they want to spend more time at sea.
The other day the entire Crown Princess family went to Gothenburg to buy a boat. According to information of Allt om kungligt, the royals chose the practical and stylish 10-meter-long Nimbus 365 Coupe motorboat, which is perfect for families with children.
The price of the boat which is praised for its functional design is around SEK 4 million. The boat is perfect for families and enjoyers who want to go far and stay comfortable.
The boat has a modern design with resilient lines, however, the manufacturer has chosen function before design.
Victoria and the family can enjoy a solid quality, where the dark mahogany creates a nice contrast to the lacquered bright surfaces and gives a warm feeling. The boat has two cabins divided into "owners cabin" and "guest cabin" with shared toilet.
On board, passengers travel royally. The cabins have fabric-covered shots in light material that muffle sound. The LED lighting in the boat is well thought out and creates well-being while being functional.
The integrated ventilation gives a significant difference in circulation and air quality.
The Nimbus 365 Coupé is 3.50 meters wide and weighs 6.3 tons. The boat is adapted to take a maximum of eight people and onboard there are berths for 6 people. Maybe it will be a premiere tour with Princess Madeleine and husband Chris where the company enjoys crayfish and snaps at sunset at Kalmarsund?
Victoria and Daniel can make wonderful day trips or take the boat home to Haga Palace. Upstairs in the salon, the space is maximized and is perceived as light and airy.
The salon has a large glass roof that provides generously with light inputs, which is perfect if Princess Estelle wants to sit and work with her homework.
The roof has two large openable roof panel with integrated sun protection. The salon has several large clean and flat areas but still feels cozy so that little prince Oscar can tumble around, maybe with a small soft ball?
After the Crown Princess family picked up the boat in Gothenburg, they ate lunch at Långedrag Värdshus where they might have chosen Summer Special which is a fish dish for 199 SEK?
Or they wanted to choose in the à la carte menu where Prince Daniel could munch on himself a Skagen served on rye bread topped with onion cream and pickled red onion as well as dill vinaigrette and crispy herb salad.
For the Crown Princess, there was the opportunity to celebrate the boat purchase with a grilled cod ridge with cream-cooked summer chanterelles with spinach and garlic, lemon butter sauce with onion and dill, variety on fennel and potato and celery range flavored with thyme, lemon and parmesan.
Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar could choose freely in the children's menu and we guess that it became the House's meatballs with mashed potatoes, cream sauce and genuine lingonberry jam. Afterwards, maybe the little royals got to party with it with the House's vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce and berries.

Svensk Damtidning wrote already in 2017 that Victoria and Daniel had a Nimbus 365 Coupé, they arrived with it to Cristina Stenbeck's birthday party on her island.

Svensk Damtidning tells that Eva O'Neill is in Solliden and stays a week.

Expressen tells about the royal family's lunch at Mormors hamnkrog on Öland on Thursday.

In the midst of the other holiday celebrations in the small summer resort, the royals showed up and enjoyed a delicious lunch.
On site were the King and queen and Chris, Madeleine and Chris's mother Eva O'Neill - now a week of family reunion awaits.
The summers at Öland and Solliden Palace are sacred to the royal family, who are happy to spend a lot of time here with all the little princes, little princessses and other relatives. Both the King and Queen are in place on the summer fun as are Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill, and now the family has also been joined by Chris's mother Eva O'Neill.
Thursday offered glorious sunshine and 30 degrees on Öland, and the royal family chose to enjoy a lovely summer lunch at Mormors hamnkrog, beautifully located near the water.
With them, they also had Princesses Leonore and Adrienne and Prince Nicolas.
The family sat a bit on the outside dining area, but still in the middle of the other people. Queen Silvia was seen eating a cooling ice cream, among other things.
Outside, people walked around in bathing suits in the summer heat, but the royals were allowed to eat their lunch in peace and quiet.
After lunch, the family walked down to the harbor where they jumped on a boat and drove off.
Restaurant Mormors hamnkrog is a picturesque summer restaurant that got new owners this year.
However, when Expressen reaches the restaurant, they cannot comment on the royal family's visit.
Margareta Thorgren can confirm that Eva O'Neill is visiting even if she does not comment when she will be leaving.
- Yes, Chris has been visited by his mother, she tells Expressen.
She says the plan is for families to spend free time together.
- It is very nice when the families meet. Right now the whole Princess Madeleine's family is visiting and they have a free time on Öland. That's why parts of Chris's family are here to hang out.
Här äter Chris och Madde sommarlunch på Öland

At one of Expressen's photos we see also Patrick Sommerlath with the king and queen:
https://c.cdn-expressen.se/images/0f...x9/1280@60.jpg

"For the first time in Stora Rör's history: King Carl XVI Gustaf stops his boat in the harbor Why then, you might wonder? Yes Together with the Queen, family and friends, he gave us a lunch visit at Mormor's Hamnkrog & Bistro. We thank you and wish them all a warm welcome again"
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

And Svensk Damtidning tells that they had dinner at Lundgren's Garage in Borgholm and also Chris's sister Natascha is in Solliden. There is a photo at the article.

A nice dinner at one of Borgholm's trendiest restaurants. Earlier today, Svensk Damtidning could reveal that Chris's mother, Eva O'Neill, is in Solliden. And now we can also tell that Chris's big sister Natascha also enjoys the island summer together with the family.
Solliden has a lot to offer this year, but the O'Neill family, as you know, like to move out among people and they wanted to experience Borgholm during the holidays. Said and done. Madeleine and Chris took Eva and Natascha to Lundgren's Garage, which has a place in the White Guide. It is owned by Henrik Insulander who is known from television. In 2013, he took third place in the TV4 program "Grillmästarna".
The group arrived at the restaurant around 20.00 in one of the royal stable's cars, a Volvo XC90, which Princess Madeleine drove. The restaurant is extremely popular and was fully booked for the evening but despite this, few people noticed the princess couple and the society women.
Chris enjoyed a drink, both before and with dinner, and Mom Eva chose a beer. The delicious menu included jalapeño poppers, guacamole, short ribs and hot smoked salmon.
A pleasant evening with good food and family fellowship. And now that Eva and Natascha have both experienced Solliden's calm charm and Borgholm's trendy pub life, they can do nothing but love Öland.

Summer Holidays with the Swedish Royal Family: 2016-2019

It is good to see Chris O’Neill’s family spend time in Sweden together with Madeleine & Chris. I hope that they make it a regular thing as this will be very supportive of the couple’s family commitments in Sweden since they live further afield nowadays in Florida. Apart from English when Chris is around, do we assume the lingua franca between Eva O’Neill, her daughter, Queen Sylvia and Madeleine might be German? Or doesn’t PM speak German?

Princess Madeleine does speak German. In fact she and Chris are said to speak it when they don't want people around them to understand what they're saying. Madeleine and her two siblings studied German at school under the first language tutoring system which gives children who speaks another language than Swedish at home the right to receive instruction in that language.

Thank you for that information! Well given that Chris has a knowledge of German, am I thinking correctly that would make it a little more helpful in learning Swedish? as he still doesn’t appear very confident with Swedish as it seems English is used around him widely in video pictures we see.

After the Crown Princess's birthday on July 14, many have been eagerly awaiting to finally see a photo of the entire large family gathered again. But there will not become a joint summer greeting this year either.
- No, it won't. There is no such thing this year, but there are the summer photos that appear sporadically on social media. We don't have a joint photo taken this summer, says Margareta Thorgren to Hänt.
Margareta confirms that the whole family was gathered during Crown Princess Victoria's birthday but that no group photo was taken. She doesn't want to go further to the reason.
- There are different circumstances so it is no oddity in it. We didn't take any photos last year either.
However, the summer greeting is not something that the royal family has intended to end entirely, but it will not come every year but when the opportunity is given. This year, the Swedish people have to settle instead for photos of the families and the children separately.
- There are a lot of photos, but there will be no portrait with the whole family, says Margareta Thorgren.

Margareta Thorgren to Expressen about Victoria and Daniel buying a boat
The Crown Princess family enjoys a well-deserved holiday after an intense spring with plenty of travel.
The family has also treated themselves to something "little" extra during this year's holiday - a four million boat with several features.
- The Crown Princess family likes to be at sea, says Margareta Thorgren.
Whether the boat has been launched is unclear, but according to Margareta Thorgren, the Crown Princess family has spent an extended period of time on Öland and then vacationed in various locations in Sweden.
The royal family is not unfamiliar with life at sea. They already have a boat at Solliden Palace on Öland where they vacation every summer and the king is an experienced boat driver.
- The king has a boat and is an excellent skipper and even the Crown Princess family likes to be at sea, says Margareta Thorgren and continues:
- The king has his boat in Solliden so he usually drives it down there every year.

Not sure what she is trying yo communicate. Very vague statements anout 'there are different circumstances'? What different circumstances? Wouldn't exactly that make it a little odd as everyone gathered for Victoria's birthday?!

I think a lot of statements by Margareta Thorgren are awkward. I don’t know if it only the translations into English that make them convoluted and odd, or if they truly are that cryptic.

Maybe this year no one really wanted to try and wrangle seven children into one nice photo.

"We didn't take any photos last year either", so I suppose that that entire family gathered photo that was visible on the King's desk during his Christmas speech came out of nowhere...

I've read the article that LadyFinn quotes in Swedish and there's nothing awkward in MT's statement so it's probably a matter of things getting lost in translation. LadyFinn has translated word by word and I can't really think of another way to translate "andra omständigheter" than to "different circumstances".
Last year we got individual pictures of the three families including one of the Crown Princely family together with the King and Queen while in 2019 we had the big blue themed family picture.

I think Margareta Thorgen means that they didn't take last year a group photo which was meant to be made public. Of course the family takes family photos to their own use, not all photos are given to the press or published at court's website or social media.

It's obvious that the king doesn't want that a group photo is published, but of course Thorgren can't say it to the press.

So I think that this year we see those summer photos which Carl Philip, Sofia and Madeleine publish at their social media. And then later in August the court publishes at their Instagram photos of the crown princess family's summer, just like it was done last year. Perhaps we will even see similar photo of the crown princess family and the crown princess family with the king and queen at court's website like last year.

So, what are the different circumstances she is talking about? I still have no clue and it seems a lame excuse.

I don't think she makes excuses. It has been decided that a group photo will not be done/published and that's that.

This weekend there are Family Days in Solliden on both days.
At the program are among others tractor tours for all children, a ride at horse and carriage, the Haga Princesses' old Playhouse is shown, all the park's vehicles are shown. Fairy tales are read and the Royal Stables have a showing.

Queen Silvia, Chris and Adrienne spent a little time at the Days in the morning.

While a group picture would be nice, I'm fine with no group picture, my problem is with how it's communicated. Explaining it is because of different circumstances to me seems a lame excuse unless she is able to specific circumstance made it impossible to release a family picture this year. Maybe you should become their press officer. Your 'it's been decided that a family picture will not be released this year' is straightforward and therefore much better

That is true, if you can't explain more then don't explain at all. Perhaps she is stuck between what she can say and cannot say. It's just weird because they have always been very generous with releasing family photos.
But I disagree with the last part. No authority where it doesn't belong.
