Today is probably one of the summer holiday's highlights for Daniel. Today is the traditional Victoriagolfen, where Daniel participated first time in 2012 and has played every year after that.
Today, we can see that Daniel plays with a GEN-PEP cap. GEN-PEP is the health initiative The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation launched last week.

Article and photos at Expressen
Daniel in great shape for his wife's golf tournament
Usually it rains from the open sky at Victoriagolfen. But this morning when Prince Daniel teed up for this year's competition there was clear blue sky, and already over 25 degrees - a weather that Daniel never before experienced in the golf tournament.
- Maybe it means luck, said Kay Wiestål, organizer of the competition.
Several consecutive years, Daniel has been close to winning his wife's prestigious golf tournament, but fell at the finish line. (notice: this is a team competition, even though Daniel is a good golfer that might not help).
Daniel has all the chances to win the competition. In previous years, his handicap has been 4. Now this year he has got his handicap below 4.
Daniel trained yesterday at the Ekerum golf course with a friend. For hours they stood and practiced tactic for today.
Daniel's expectations for the race today?
- We'll see, he laughed. Without a doubt exciting.
The shape? Looked radiant. In warming, he did clean out shots and got spontaneous applause, just such a thing strengthens confidence.
In the afternoon, we know if Daniel finally gets his long-awaited victory and becomes king of the golf course - once and for all.
Kay Wiestål had its view clear:
- Could be a thriller. Regardless, Daniel is incredibly talented. This will be a race to be reckoned with. There are not many who have royalty in the first ball.

Article and photos at 24Kalmar
The prince is a keen golfer and plays with the impressive 3.9 handicap. Daniel plays together with his friend Håkan Lundstedt, Patrik Hedberg and the ceo of Ekerum Resort, Magnus Lagerlöf.
24Kalmar was in place at the 3rd hole, a short hole par three. There the prince's ball was clearly the best and the team got a good chance to chase a birdie. The game form is Texas Scramble Shootout.

Madeleine, Chris and Leonore were seen shopping at ICA in Borgholm today.

Translation

Victoria, Daniel and children arrived on Friday afternoon from Öland to Bromma Airport. Margareta Thorgren said that they don't comment on family's trip and that the family will return to Öland. Daniel said on Victoria's birthday that they will spend as much time they can in Öland in the summer. Lindwall speculates that Victoria and Daniel have a large circle of friends, perhaps someone is getting married and that's why the family left Öland. Like I said, it's nothing we comment, said Thorgren.

Expressen's article about the summer of Victoria and Daniel, telling again about their Villa Skönvik we have read so many times before.
It was the day after Crown Princess Victoria's birthday that she and Daniel left Öland for a flying trip to Stockholm.
The court refused to comment on why, but it was a flying visit. Prince Daniel and Crown Princess Victoria will now spend the rest of the summer on Öland. Daniel met Expressen last week and revealed the family's summer plans:
- It will be mostly Öland, no doubt. We thrive after all extremely well.
Victoria's glorious summer on Öland with Daniel and daughter Estelle and her son Oscar, simply. Earlier this summer they have been with Daniel's parents Ewa and Olle Westling in their summer house in Acktjära.
- We'll just be on Öland in the summer and spend time with the family, Daniel continued
What do you do during the day?
- Everything possible. Be outdoors as much as possible. The important thing is to be together.
Will there be any more golf?
- We'll see. That went rather good recently, Daniel tells and refers to Victoriagolfen that he played the day before of his wife Victoria's birthday.
- The royal family has now holiday. The king and queen will on Tuesday attend at the Öland Inhabitant of the Year at Solliden Palace, says Margareta Thorgren.

King Carl Gustaf was yesterday seen out on the sea with his boat before the award delivery in the afternoon. Lindwall writes that the king and queen enjoy their summer in Solliden.
Queen Silvia says:
- Solliden is our oasis, our place to refresh and spend time with the family and all grandchildren. Most important with the summer is that we are together. Of course we hope for good weather. On Öland the farmers want now rain because there is a need for water, but the fine weather would also not be wrong. Summer is short as Tomas Ledin sings. And so it really is. So it is extra important for us in the family to feel that we are together. Because it's a recovery. We do a lot of things together and try to just hang out.

Lots of photos of the family
The royal family had invited some photographers to Solliden on Friday 15th July to take photos of the family. Margareta Thorgren says that there is a big interest in the royal family and that is why these photos were taken. The photoshoot was done before the lunch and Thorgren says that it was a great photoshoot with all family members. This reminds the tradition the king and queen had when their children were young. Thorgren says that they will see if this becomes a tradition now too. Now these photos were taken and we will see what happens next year.

Here is a video of the photoshoot, Leonore ran all over the place and didn't want to come to the photo. Finally Madeleine caught her and she could be photographed too. "And now we are quick", the photographers say after Leonore was at the group too.

Beautiful photoshoot.

I can see no resemblace in Alexander' face. I see an average looking baby.

The most funny face is the one of lite Oscar!

The kids are adorable. Leo runs around a lot. Sofia should have rethought what she wore considering she was being photographed in official pictures: pants too tight, especially in the front.

Swedish royal babies steal the show at family photocall

Swedish royal babies steal the show at family photocall Read more: Swedish royal babies melt hearts at family photocall The Swedish imperial family invited two fresh introductions this year, making their yearly summer photocall all the all the more inspiring. Sovereign Oscar and Prince Alexander, who were conceived a month and a half separated, stole the appear, close by their more seasoned cousin Prince Nicolas, who has recently turned one. The three children were the photo of charm and tantamount to gold as they postured for the family representations at Solliden Palace, the royals' late spring living arrangement. Third-in-line to the throne Prince Oscar was supported by his hovering mum Crown Princess Victoria, who remained by her better half Prince Daniel. Their little girl Princess Estelle had pride of spot between her grandparents Queen Silvia and King Carl XVI Gustaf.

What a great summer gift from the Swedish Royal Family.

The children are too cute for words. I guess Leonore has learned a lot from Estelle in being wild. Nicolas, Oscar and Alexander have stolen my heart.

What language is Leonor speaking and they speak to her? Chris doesn't speak much Swedish so i wondered would their children speak English first?
You can tell from the video that Chris is not so comfortable on front of the cameras and he did not choose the royal life.

In the video, it sounds as if Madeleine was speaking swedish with Leonore. I think the her children will be raised blingual. IRRC, Chris said that he is learning swedish and that he understan a great deal of it, but speaking it is another thing.

It looked to me he was annoyed because Leonore was difficult to control and not for the cameras.
