Estelle and Oscar didn't come to watch the slalom part of Alpine combined in the afternoon.

Short video of Victoria and Daniel
From the lectern in Åre, Prince Daniel, Crown Princess Victoria and their children, saw the Swedes, who performed well in the downhill race.
Lisa Hörnblad came in on place 11 and Lin Ivarsson in place 18 in front of the slalom race which ends the super combination.
Perhaps the royals envied their friends Mette-Marit and Haakon, Crown Prince and Crown Prince of Norway when their representative Ragnhild Mowinckel was third after the downhill.
But if it was so, it wasn't seen at the photos.
They rather seem to have had a great time together. Mette-Marit took off her Norwegian beanie to wear the Swedish yellow, the one with the text Sweden and Åre, to Victoria's satisfaction.
- It's great, really fun. It's fun that the World Championships are in Åre, says Crown Princess Victoria.
You got a swedish beanie on Mette-Marit too, or?
- Yes, says Victoria and laughs before Prince Daniel fills in:
- It was probably an Åre-beanie for her.

Great to see Victoria and co. with Haakon and MM! It seems they all get along well and I loved photos of the conversation Estelle seemed to be having with her godmother. They both seem to be quite loving families so it was wonderful to see them together.

I heard Swedish and Norwegian are similar languages. Maybe they spoke on their respective languages instead of using just one to communicate?

Yes. I understand norwegian, and norwegians understans swedish. So you are right - they just speak their own language and understand each other.

Great photos of Oscar (and others)
The royal family is in place and cheers on the Swedish team, and ensures that the snow ends up in the right place from time to time.
Perhaps Prince Oscar had been able to do a nice job on Sweden's various streets and squares, which in the past few days have been so snow-covered so that traffic had a hard time getting through.
He stood with a blue shovel and looked to try to scrape clean in Åre, where the ski World Cup is currently underway. Of course, it is difficult for any child to stay away from the snow if you get a shovel in your hand.

Some of the greatest stars in the history of alpine skiing (Ingemar Stenmark, Anja Pärson and others) will race again at Skistar Invitational in Åre on 12 February. The competition is held in cooperation with the non-profit organization founded by Thomas Fogdö known as Active Life Foundation which supports the care and rehab of athletes who were seriously injured, among other things.

Short video of the king and queen's interview
King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia have just seen the American star Lindsey Vonn celebrated for her bronze, and the career that is now over.
The royal couple saw the races from the stand and were impressed:
- What a farewell performance she could perform, she failed as we all know the previous races this week, but now she could finish the days here, and her amazing career coming third. She received the spectators' cheers so it was amazing, the king says.
- It was great to see, and we congratulate everyone on their medals, says Queen Silvia.
Estelle and Oscar went downhill
Before the race, on Sunday morning Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar had taken the slopes in Åre together with the Crown Princess couple.
- It is very fun, says Queen Silvia who is delighted with the grandchildren's progress both in the downhill slopes and in the cross-country skiing.
- If you have the opportunity, it is fun to let the children try different sports, says the king.
Met Stenmark
On Sunday, the King also met Ingemar Stenmark.
- It is fun to meet Ingemar here, he has been seen since his glory days, says the king.
And Silvia fills in:
- Think when Sweden stopped when Ingemar raced, it was fantastic.

The Alpine World Championships in Åre has got a royal stamp. King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia have seen the weekend's downhill races as well as the Crown Princess couple and children Estelle and Oscar.
Legend Anja Pärson, who is also present in Åre, spent time with the king during yesterday's competitions in combination.
- We had coffee and tried to make the time between the races go. We took it easy, Pärson says.
How important is it to athletes that the royal family is in place during a World Championships?
- It's really important and very big thing. The competitors feel a great joy about meeting the royal family. When they are present, the athletes know that the nation is behind one when you are here.
Large parts of the Åre audience chose to go home early in the competitions. The king didn't like that, Pärson reveals.
- It honors our majesty that he remained during the whole competition. He had a little cold and coughed, but remained and honored everyone. 90 percent of the audience did not remain. It annoyed him that no more were left and engaged. He is incredibly committed. It's incredibly nice, says Pärson.

The king and queen's interview, done last weekend, but TV4 play updated it today to their website. At the video we see also Victoria, Daniel and the children and the norwegian royals. Queen Silvia mentions also that Estelle had been skiing with her parents in Åre. It is great, as Daniel says that the children move and it is important. The children move so little, they sit in front of TV or phone.

I'm guessing that Daniel is referring to Swedish children in general rather than his own; as this struck me by surprise if it's in reference to his own, since the family have always struck me as very sporty and outdoorsy.

I would hope that Estelle and Oscar are indeed not yet occupied to much by their phone. So, it indeed sounds as a more general comment.
