The Finns in Tornio are already eagerly waiting for Victoria, who will inaugurate the "Viktoriatorget", the common Victoria Square at Haparanda-Tornio, on 22th September. The court has confirmed that Victoria will attend, but Daniel´s attendance haven´t been confirmed yet (maybe he hasn´t his studying agenda in knowledge yet). President Tarja Halonen has also been invited, but she hasn´t confirmed her attendance yet.

Victoria and Daniel got 100000 bees as a wedding present from the swedish beekeepers. They have now been taken to Haga Palace.
In a green grove near the castle are two Sweden-yellow bee hives, each with a queen with attendants.

According to SvenskDam, Victoria and Daniel will build an own family summer villa at Solliden. The villa would be in a separate and peaceful place and it would of course be child friendly.
Victoria och Daniel bygger egen familjevilla | Svensk Damtidning
I´ve read from many articles that the Solliden Castle is actually quite small, so I find it quite understandable that Victoria and Daniel want to have an own villa for their family.

I read from the paper version of finnish Iltalehti, which quotes SvenskDam. Victoria and Daniel build their new villa to Hjörthägnet-area behind the Solliden castle, to the northwest. Their villa will be about 300 meters from the Solliden Castle at a very leafy and forested area. That´s why the place is perfect for the couple, they want their privacy and the thick leafy-tree forest prevents the looks of curious people. The elks have their pasture at Hjörthägnet, so the couple and their children can see elks from their windows.
Victoria and Daniel have wanted to take special care to that the villa suits to the historical surroundings in the right way. They have bought materials to the villa from the local craftsmen. Both grey and red limestones, which are familiar in Öland, are used to the villa. The building will start in just a few weeks, and it is estimated to be ready in March.

About Daniel´s studies during the autumn at the website of the court:

Studies 2011
Prince Daniel is continuing his studies in physiology during autumn 2011. Studies in physiology, physical activity and health were conducted during spring. Now the studies will be continuing in growth and physical development in children and adolescents with relation to physical activity and disease. The studies are carried out as previously in the form of contract with teachers from the Karolinska Institutet. The studies in the fall correspond to 7.5 ECTS (högskolepoäng).
Prince Daniel has even official missions both independently and together with Crown Princess Victoria.

Daniel is studying just physiology and health issues at Karolinska Institutet, which is one of Europe's largest medical universities. It is also Sweden's largest center for medical education and research.

About Daniel´s education:
Prince Daniel attended Rabo primary school and Perslunda school in Ockelbo, and later Hammargymnasiet upper secondary school in Sandviken. He graduated from upper secondary school in 1991.

Prince Daniel spent many of his summers working, including at a home for the elderly in Ockelbo.After graduating from upper secondary school, Prince Daniel worked again within elderly care in Ockelbo pending his military service. He carried out his military service at I14 in Gävle.

Last weeks SvenskDam had "38 things you didn´t know about Daniel", because of his birthday.
Here are some of them:
Daniel describes himself with the words "faithful and secure". He has said that he has to work harder now as a prince than as a gym-owner. Daniel is very romantic and likes to surprise his wife. He likes the band Kent and their song Utan dina andetag, and loves Carola. Daniel is still nervous about interviews, and most afraid to say anything that could be misinterpreted. Daniel´s handicap in golf is four. Daniel likes theater, and he likes to read when he has time. He has always his running shoes with him, where ever he goes. He is a big fan of Asian food and loves mother Eva´s cabbage pudding and Swiss roll. And he loves chocolate. Daniel is said to be unusually competitive, and a really bad loser. He is extremely early riser. Just like Victoria, she never complains when he proposes a training session already at 06.00.

Thanks Lady Finn! I love it when they write articles like that about the royals. I can't remember which magazine it was, but one of them did the same thing when Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge turned 29.

Mikael Jansson´s photo of Victoria from 2002 is one of the things at the Charity Auction for the World Diabetes Day/Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.
1011. MIKAEL JANSSON, född 1958, H.K.H Kronprinsessan

The magazine of the Swedish Railways, Kupé, has made a research with its passengers whom they prefer to sit next to. The first year was the Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt, who attracted the most. But in both 2010 and 2011, Crown Princess Victoria, the highest in the course.
The choice of the Crown Princess is justified, among other things like this in the responses: "She seems human and natural," "Would be interesting to hear about her every day" and "She is knowledgeable in so many areas.
Skulle också vilja prata med henne om andlighet”.
Would also like to talk to her about spirituality."

Royal summer camp in Åbyggeby
In August 2012 Ockelbo invites, along with Daniel and Victoria, young people from big cities to Åbyggeby Rural Center for a camp among animals and nature.
Ockelbo Municipality's wedding gift to Daniel and Victoria (in addition to the Ockelbo costumes) was to organize a camp for young people. The idea was originally that the camp would be held in 2011.
- But then we got busy with the visit, said the municipality's development manager Karin Strömberg, which will now be putting together a steering group in a hurry to get started with planning.

When Daniel inaugurated Idrottshögskolan (Sports School) in Gothenburg on 17th March, he said that he would like to return there with more time.
Daniel returned to the Idrottshögskolan at the University of Gothenburg with Victoria on 1st September. The day before Daniel and Victoria had visited Gothenburg on a official visit. They stayed there and continued their visit as private the next day. Daniel had said that he wanted himself test the laboratory components of the Sports School in Skånegatan.
Daniel began with a technology improvement of the golf swing - he has a good 4 handicap in golf - in the so-called motion lab, where a multitude of electrodes are attached to both to the head and the training clothing. After that he took a half hour endurance test in the cardiorespiratory room to end with a slightly longer muscle strength testing in the isokinetic strength room.
Victoria was enthusiastic about what she saw:
- An incredibly clear way to learn about the biomechanics and physiology. This is good for both elite and those who exercise. It´s easy to understand what muscular strength and endurance is all about.

Because of Aftonbladet´s investigations, the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education started an investigation if it is legal that Daniel is studying at the Karolinska Institutet by paying his studies.
On Friday Karolinska Institutet send it´s reply to the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education. The Director of the Institutet, Bengt Norrving said:
- The role as a member of the royal family with its extensive function and public funding should be equated with the role as employee.
Karolinska Institutet therefore considers that the mission the education of Prince Daniel is not illegal.
Higher Education can not currently say when a decision on the matter will be published:
- We will look at what they have said, and eventually come up with our assessment, said Michael Herjevik from the Higher Education.

Victoria has given an interview to the World Child & Youth Forum:
Kronprinsessan intervjuas om World Child & Youth Forum - Sveriges Kungahus
Google translation
Google Kääntäjä
The royal family (except Carl Philip) will participate in the World Child & Youth Forum on Thursday.

Finnish Iltalehti quotes Expressen: Daniel uses Facebook very actively. He uses a secret name, which somehow is connected to his real identity. In Facebook Daniel has his closest friends as his Facebook-friends. The director of the Information and Press Department, Bertil Ternert refused to comment the secret identity of Daniel. Ternert also said that the swedish royal court is considering to become active in social media, like the british royal court and the crown prince couple of Norway, which have their own Facebook-site and Twitter.

I think that will be a step in the right direction.
