Expressen tells about the visits Daniel and Estelle have made to Astrid Lindgren's Junibacken, Svensk Damtidning wrote about that last week.
Maria Reuterskiöd from Junibacken tells to Expressen, that Estelle has been there with her father, Prince Daniel. The first time was just a couple weeks ago, they called in advance and told that they planned to come. After that, they have just come like other visitors. They were here only last week. They have going around just the two of them, but she understands they have thrived. They have seen some of the performances.
Currently there is shown Per Gustavsson's "When princesses take vacation" about a pretty tough little princess who goes on holiday and what happens then. She camps, eats cake and plays hide and seek, says Reuterskiöld.
They have also seen play "Bokstavsbageriet".
Estelle and Daniel have also aten lunch at Junibacken, at the last visit they had meatballs.
It costs 145 SEK for adults, it is free for Estelle, because only after the child is 2 years old, it costs 125 SEK.
Annika Sönnerberg from press department says that Estelle thinks it is fun to visit Junibacken. She knows that the crown princess couple reads very much for Estelle, Astrid Lindren and other storybooks.

A new patronage for Daniel:
He is the patron of the swedish male choir Västgöta Nations Manskör.
Prince Daniel and the choir has on previous occasions had the opportunity to get acquainted with each other. The choir performed for Daniel and Victoria at a lunch last year in Uppsala. The choir sees Prince Daniel accepting protectorate in recognition of the choir's success in different contexts. The choir won the first prize in the male choir class at the international competition in Krakow in June this year.

But the court hasn't still put Daniel's patronages to his website like the other family members have.

Today was the Father's Day in Sweden, Svensk Damtidning speculated that Estelle is too little to give drawings as a gift, but perhaps she has collected a lot of chestnuts from the garden of the Haga Palace? Daniel is often seen cycling with Estelle in the Haga Park and nowadays they also go often to Astrid Lindgren's Junibacken.

Expressen writes about Victoria's interview at Stadsmission's magazine

Crown Princess Victoria is strongly involved in the Stockholm City Mission (Stadsmission) and the people who receive help from it. Victoria wants to try to volunteer to help others.
- We've talked about different possibilities for how it would be possible. It's a goal, she says to the Mission Business magazine.
Victoria was interviewed at her visit. She had a long conversation with Mats, one of those who finally got a home of their own.
Victoria talks about that the social climate can be hard, it places heavy demands on individuals.
- To suddenly face a crisis can strike anyone, and one should be very humble in front of it. Just that thought. When coming into contact with people of vulnerability or people who have problems in different ways. It could be me, it could be a family member. It is important to dare to see the individual and give people a chance.
Victoria (the patron of Stockholm City Mission since 2010) has studied the business and talked to both helpers and those who have got help many times.
- I get very involved. I have met so many nice and strong personalities every time I've visited Stockholm City Mission. There are both people who have got their place in life and people who do not yet have it. In their vulnerability, they are incredibly strong individuals. Individuals who make an impression, says the Crown Princess.
Victoria says that we all have a responsibility to society to get a little warmer, a little more loving. And that she would like to work as a volunteer.
- I admire the people who give of themselves, they have it in theirselves naturally. Like a friend of mine, she is a mother of four and has the least chaotic home, yet she tries always to prioritize her volunteer work. She feels it gives her so much. I think this is beautiful. The power of charity is that there are so many ways to help. It can sometimes also be reaching out to someone you know, someone in the circle of acquaintances, says Crown Princess Victoria who sends a thought to the readers:
- I think it's important to be compassionate. Constantly strive to try to be a good human being. It is important not to stand by and watch, but to contribute to it as you can. With money, expertise or time. Everyone can help.

Apparently Crownprincess Victoria won't attend the Nobel Prize this year.
It seems like she is going to Mandela's memorial in South Africa with Sweden's prime minister.

Victoria's interview at Stockholms Stadsmissions (Stockholm City Mission) Mission Business -magazine. The interview was done in 26th October, Victoria had later in the evening the formal gathering of the Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences.
Victoria came to Stadsmission's premises and met Mats, a man who has finally got an own home, and ate lunch with him. Victoria got information about Blixtjobb, Stadsmission's project to get temporary work for the homeless. And project Bostad först, which tries to find places to stay and homes for the homeless. Victoria said that they talked how they could unite Blixtjobb to the court's work. It may not be easy, but maybe that is possible in the future. Victoria talks about how involved she is at the work of Stadsmission. She talks also about how hers and Daniel's The Crown Princess Couple's Foundation has given a donation to Stadsmission. Victoria says that she hopes that their Foundation can make a difference. It is still very young, but they hope that in the long term they have supported and helped people who really need help. She says also that during hers and Daniel's trips all over Sweden they meet people and hear about organizations and projects they want to help.

Expressen writes about the interview Victoria gave on her birthday to Medi@boom, a magazine made by twelve journalists with intellectual disabilities. The magazine is now coming out. Jessica Andersson, business developer at Adult Education Association in Blekinge tells they had sent some questions to the court and then got an invitation to meet with Victoria for an exclusive interview.
A part of the interview
Does the Crown Princess select her clothes herself or does she get help?
- It's a good question, because it can be wondered sometimes, doesn't it? Well, I choose them myself but I get a little advice on taste. I find it difficult with clothes, what to wear. It might be good to get some help with new ideas so you can combine old clothes to make it fresh and fun.
Do you like to read books?
- Yes, I have extremely difficult to read books, I read very slowly. But I try to read, otherwise I think it's handy to listen to books on tape. I try to do so when I go walking or run.
Do you cook yourself?
- Yes, we usually cook both Daniel and I, but it will be variable good, ha ha.

Svensk Damtidning tells that Victoria and Estelle visited one day at the Royal Mews' Christmas market. Martin Melin from the Royal Mews tells that they bought Christmas presents, a lot of craft and Christmas food, like sausages. No photos at the article.
