Estelle is a lovely little girl and she always seems to pay close attention on these visits and seems genuinely curious in the information being presented to her. Love the photo of her wheeling the books in particular!

This is what should be done. Nor a strict education neither a "be normal as possible" education. They seem to have a great balance on raising Estelle on the royal life and private life.
Completely agree. These museum visits feel relaxed as if they're popping into a local attraction on their way home from school to kill some time before dinner - which eliminates the scariness I can imagine one would feel in a situation where they've been leading a normal life and are now told that they're to be the future monarch. They're not thrusting Estelle into the deep end, but have been introducing her royal background and responsibilities to her step by step as she grows up.

This is what should be done. Nor a strict education neither a "be normal as possible" education. They seem to have a great balance on raising Estelle on the royal life and private life. I think Ingrid Alexandra is having a similar education. Leonor of Spain started her royal duties late, but still on time to learn slowly and without rush.
Agreed. It seems that CP Victoria and Prince Daniel have taken a leaf out of CP Frederik and CP Mary's book. They started Prince Christian's royal education early too.

Victoria and Daniel are raising Estelle (and Oscar) the same way than Victoria and her siblings were raised. The king and queen took them to the official events when they were very small, to the king's birthday celebrations, to the National Day celebrations, to Victoria's birthday celebration and other events. And they were told about the history of Bernadotte dynasty and the kings and queens of Sweden.

Princess Estelle's historic family time - at the library
Princess Estelle, almost seven years old, is learning more and more about the history of her own royal family.
Crown Princess Victoria, Estelle and King Carl Gustaf visited the Bernadotte Library at the Royal Palace.
At the beginning of January, Estelle was allowed to go down to the Royal Palace's cellar vault to look at the national regalia that are in the treasury.
And this week, the Princess visited the Bernadotte Library at the Royal Palace - which holds over 100,000 books belonging to the Bernadotte family.
At the same time there are also around 800,000 photographs saved - in addition to that there are plenty of old family history inside the library walls, and at the Royal House's Instagram are a whole bunch of pictures of when Princess Estelle explores the library.
Prinsessan Estelles historiska släktstund på biblioteket

Svensk Damtidning interviewed Margareta Thorgren:
What did Princess Estelle think of the visit?
- The princess was very interested. She thought the visit was so much fun.
What does the Crown Princess think of bringing Princess Estelle on such visits?
- It is a cultural heritage and the Crown Princess is so happy that Princess Estelle is so interested. She is in the age when children are very curious, so in this case you want to talk about family history in an easy and fun way.
Margareta Thorgren also tells us that we can look forward to more visits of this type. The mother and daughter have already visited the Treasury at the Royal Palace. Wondering which royal hide she is visiting next!

Finally! I thought it was planned for February, but given all attendance at World Championships it was probably tricky go arrange. The attendance of the Royal Family is as expected, and it will be Sofia's first Riksdagssupé.

If they were going to make Prince Daniel sit in the second row, at least they could have put him right behind CPVictoria, and not at the other end.
CarlPhilip could sit behind his father, PSofia behind QSilvia, and PDaniel behind CPVictoria.

The court at its website
Divertissement in the Hall of State
The evening started with divertissement in the Hall of State, a room that was created in 1717 by the Palace builder Nicodemus Tessin younger as the Palace's main ceremony room. The hall was, however, first used in 1755. In recent times, the hall has been used as a banquet hall at the King's 50th and 70th anniversaries, at the Crown Princess's 18th birthday as well as at the Crown Princess and Prince Daniel's wedding dinner.
The Divertissement began with the invited guests singing together The King's Song. After that, Förklädd gud, a lyrical suite from 1940 by Lars Erik Larsson with text by Hjalmar Gullberg, performed by the Lilla Akademiens Sinfonietta, Stockholm Chamber Choir, Lovö church choir, The Royal Chapel's vocal ensemble and the Palace's Choir. Soloists were court singers Hillevi Martinpelto and Karl-Magnus Fredriksson. Helgi Reynisson recited. Court trumpetist Olle Hermansen with ensemble from the Royal Swedish Army Band also played.
The program was compiled by the court organist Mary Ljungqvist Hén on behalf of, and in consultation with, the King.
Greeting Ceremony
After the concert, the Royal Family went to the Pillar Hall in the Bernadotte Apartments where they received and greeted the evening's 432 guests.
Supper
The supper was then taken at the Royal Apartments. The Riksdag suppers are the largest dinners that are repeatedly given at the Palace. At the evening's dinner, several rooms were therefore used. The supper was served at the Cabinet Meeting Room, Audience Room, Gustav III's State Bedchamber and Karl XI's Gallery.

Before the Holy Week, the King and Queen and the Crown Princess, together with priests attached to the court, attended at an agape meal at the Royal Chapel in the Royal Palace on April 9th.
An agape meal - "love meal" - is a worship service during which the participants also take a meal. The Agape meal originates from the oldest Christian church's home meals and is a kind of imitation of Jesus' farewell meal with the apostles.

Seems like there is no Representationsmiddag (official dinner) this spring, nontheless the announce one last minute for late May or early June. But I doubt so.
