Halonen ja Vickan tapasivat: Katso kuvat! | Viihde | Iltalehti.fi

Both queen Silvia and crown princess Victoria are wearing the same brooch. The brooch is designed by president Halonen. She gave one to the queen at a visit to Finland and one to Victoria at hers and Daniel´s visit to Finland in 2010.

What a lovely gesture! Do we have any close-up photos of the brooch, I couldn't find any?

A video from the website of the finnish TV channel YLE
Prinsessa Victoria ja presidentti Halonen lounastivat | Uutisjuttuja | Toista | YLE Areena | yle.fi

Another video
http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article14409238.ab

President Halonen told to the reporter of finnish MTV3, that she gave some Moomin-stuff as a gift to Victoria and Daniel (The Head of Press Relations of president Halonen told to the media, that Halonen gave V and D six Moomin mugs and a Moomin set of dishes for children). To the king, queen and princess Christina Halonen gave finnish art glass.
Halonen describes the royal family waiting for the baby as warm and relaxed.
- It was just like any other family where to the mother's side is expected the first grandchild. For Daniel's parents, it is not exactly a new thing, they are already grandparents. Older ladies reminisced on their own. Victoria seemed very calm and relaxed, Halonen said.
The President was asked also whether there was talk of when the child is born.
- Sooner than later, president Halonen answered cryptically.

As I told already a few messages back:
Both queen Silvia and crown princess Victoria are wearing the same brooch. The brooch is designed by president Halonen. She gave one to the queen at a state visit to Finland in 2003 and one to Victoria at hers and Daniel´s visit to Finland in 2010. These brooches are only made a few and president Halonen has given them to some guests close to her. President Halonen has of course this brooch too.
Here is a close up of the brooch. According to the Head of Press Relations of president Halonen, the brooch is made ​​from a thin gold wire, and it has gem embellishments.
http://img.mtv3.fi/mn_kuvat/mtv3/vii...max555x555.jpg
President Halonen told yesterday to the finnish media at a press conference after the lunch, that she was very delighted about that the queen and the crown princess wore the brooches.

Wonderful gesture -- the brooch as well as both woman wearing them.

This was the last official appointment of CP Victoria .... now she can rest and hopefully get some sleep before her biggest "adventure" will start any day now :)

The royal family needs more money to it´s functions. The King wants 12 million SEK extra for inflation adjustments in the next three years, according to the budget documents the royal court now submitted to the Finance Ministry.
Prince Daniel's entry into the royal family has made to increasing costs.
- Now that we have a new member of the royal family, Prince Daniel, we get requests for things you want him to be on, and to administer this, it takes resources away from us. We are looking for no extra money for the princess Estelle, says Jan Lindman, senior curator at the royal court to Expressen.se.
Kungen söker extra anslag | Nyheter | Expressen
Google translation

Aftonbladet made a poll if the royal family should get more money. 85000 people answered, and 83 % of them answered no.
Some answers:
"Of course I support the royal family but too exaggerated amount of money taken from us taxpayers!"
"Put the money on schools and health care instead!"
"Take away all the money from Madeleine, she is not even present in Sweden, not even in the EU. Eva in Thailand can´t have her guaranteed pension because she is outside the EU, Madeleine can´t get the money when she is in the United States."
Those who said yes:
"The royal family do not sit and roll their thumbs at home at the Palace, but they are out meeting people, working with vulnerable children, make a state visit, etc. Victoria was on the road only one day before Estelle was born, and I think is well done. But you who are against the monarchy could start saving up money for the cost of a president instead ... "

Well Prince Daniel must be good if he is costing the royal firm more money than is comfortable to do his "Job", so I am guessing he has become a very popular addition to the family.

I think his media brief after the birth of Estelle really showed how comfortable he is in his own skin and how well he has adapted to royal life. I'll bet he got lots of requests for engagements after that little side show.

Expressen has an exclusive story on it´s cover,
Madeleine´s peace meeting with Sofia
http://www.expressen.se/ImageHandler.axd?imageFormat=firstColumn&guid=1d658594-08e6-4d8d-8850-814edbf3d31f

Finnish MTV tells about the lunch and story in Expressen. Carl Philip, Sofia and Madeleine had lunch in restaurant Riche, Madeleine´s favourite restaurant. They were there for two hours and Madeleine and Sofia seemed to have a lot to talk about. When they left the restaurant, Madeleine said that "they had had a really nice time, really".

It seems to me that there has been a serious family meeting about all the negative comments and media reports (also from the rift between Madeleine and Sofia), and they have decided that something has to be done.

I wonder if CP Victoria will be present at the meeting with new president.
His wife and Victoria were born in the same year.
