They are not on a break as a matter of fact. They are free from official duties but are busy at the vital task of promoting a heir to the swedish throne. "in their own pace" as Prince Daniel stated.
Personally, and as a swiss citizen, I would prefer to have royals living on my money than dull looking bank managers who feed on exorbitant boni and give the country a bad image.

When Victoria and Daniel return from their honeymoon, they must be staying at the Drottningholm Castle in Victoria´s apartment, because the Haga Palace isn´t ready yet. Originally the castle should have been ready to move in July. But an extensive pipe removal and radon and asbestos removal delayed the plans. It should have been ready in early August. But reportedly it has been delayed again. It is still unclear, when Victoria and Daniel can move to Haga.

Well, in the first chapter there is nothing that wasn't already written somewhere else.

It's written remarkably boring too. Not very much work put into something that wants to ride on the wave of the wedding.

Two rare tapirs were born in Sweden in a week, and the other was named Daniel because it was born on Victoria´s birthday.

it is such a gesture of victoria and it must have been such a honour for anna westling to wear her dress. a true sign of acceptance.

I wonder if Victoria let her rummage through her closet or simply gave her the dress.

Victoria gave also two dresses to a wife of a friend of Daniel.

It is a nice gesture, but she's giving away dresses that she wore to celebrate her wedding.
I could never give my dresses away.

She gave two very old dresses to the wife of a friend of Daniel. There was an article at Svensk Damtidning. The dresses were these:
The lady wore this dress at the private party in Drottningholm, from the pre-wedding ball of Alexia of Greece, 1999:

And this one from 2001 (it could even be older), she wore at the wedding, it was a little altered

Also the one she gave to Anna was some years old. I don´t understand your point, how does it effect to her wedding that she gave away her old dresses?
I think that Victoria would have never used these dresses anymore.

Do you mean dresses that were worn at her wedding? If so it is a lovely gesture and lets face it, we all moan when they haul out something seen many times before, even if it was years ago.

I think she must have had such fun opening her wardrobe and doing the girlie thing saying "let's try all these on, oh good grief, I can't believe I wore that colour but, wow, I bet that would look great on you . . . . . oh, that's the one I wore when Daniel and I went as partners to ????? wedding, do you remember, Oh my gosh, this would look divine on you. You absolutely have to try it on . . . . "

I think she must be very fond of her sister-in-law and I think she provides the familial friendship that I don't think she gets from her own sister.

As for the dress Victoria wore to her wedding? That is not going anywhere!

I didn't realise that the dresses she gave away were old ones, for some reason my mind read "evening" in the first post as "wedding" and presumed she had given away the dresses she wore before her wedding.
Thank you for posting the pictures of the dresses.
I still wouldn't have gave them away.

Maybe she is not giving them away, but just for this special occassion? It seems the paps are interested in Anna Westling. I don't hope they will follow her now too. I think it is a lovely gesture and a token of appreciation by Victoria.

Here is another article about the dress:

Nothings wrong with giving away your dresses.
Especially if you have a closet full of them.

I agree...they're just dresses, after all. She has Daniel and now she needs new dresses.
