For the first few years the photos from her birthdays at Solliden were taken and distributed by the King. No official celebration with visitors and journalists.

The change in succession was decided on in 1979 and became law in 1980. As with any change in a country's constitution the process took place over several years so the change did not come as surprise to anyone. The king was never opposed to the change but rather to the fact that it was made retroactive. He felt because Carl Philip had been born under the prior succession law he should be allowed to keep the position as Crown Prince.

Grevinnan, the official 'Victoriaday' celebrations at Borgholm were indeed held from the beginning, starting at her first birthday, although she herself was too small to attend.
Here's a pic of the King at 'Victoriaday' 1979 with Ingemar Stennmark:

As for the change of succession, as early as on the occasion of Princess Victoria's christening the media wondered already very openly if this might actually be the christening of a future Crown Princess.

Boris, this was the original post that I was responding to. The royal family are guests at the evening event which are arranged to co-incide with Victoria's birthday by the local sports club.

The reporter at Aftonbladet's Live TV just said that the expected due date is March 12th, 2012. I've never before heard a court announce the exact due date! What makes this interesting is that March 12th is also Victoria's name day and already an official 'flag day' in Sweden.

The couple just left the palace in two separate cars. I wonder if there will be any other sightings of the pair today.

Is this really confirmed by the court or is this just a TV station speculating to make things more interesting because of the names day of the mother during the due month? Because it sounds like it to me.

I don't know yet but I will post it here if I find a confirmation of this. So far we only have this: "Barnet är beräknat till den 12 mars enligt Aftonbladets livesänding." So, according to Aftonbladet's live broadcast the baby is estimated to be born March 12 but I don't know where they got this from. Some people have speculated that perhaps CP is actually further in her pregnancy as has been stated and the baby might be born before March. Didn't Prince Daniel say when the reporters caught him on his way to the gym this evening that they "have to wait another six months"? Could this mean that she is past the three month limit now?

It could be that she's past three months or she could be nearing the end of her two months. I'm sure the reports aren't too far off in speculation.

I think you may be actually right regarding the due date of the baby, it is not so uncommon to announce a later due date just to make sure that the future mom has at least some peace before the baby is born. Second half of February would be really possible IMO, although first babies tend to be late.

The court confirmed that the child will be born in March, they didn´t announce the date (12?, maybe the press has got it from Victoria´s name day?).

Then she's about 3 months along. Daniel did say half a year.
