Swedish Royals Celebrate National Day
On June 6, the Swedish Royal Family celebrated the country’s National Day, which celebrates the election of King Gustav Vasa in 1523, as he is considered by the Swedish people to be “the foundation of modern Sweden”.
A new photo of Princess Estelle, the daughter of the Crown Princess Couple, was released to start the celebrations. Princess Madeleine also sent her greetings to the public on her Facebook page.
In the morning, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia visited the county of Örebro, where they went to the county’s museum and toured the exhibition “Vi blir Örebro”. They later attended a citizenship ceremony at Örebro Castle and the celebrations for National Day in the castle’s park.
Crown Princess Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel, also paid a visit to a Swedish county, this time to Uppsala. They attended a citizenship ceremony at Uppsala Castle before heading back to Stockholm to join the rest of the family, though Christopher O’Neill and Princess Leonore weren’t present.
Prince Carl Philip attended the changing of the Guard at the Royal Palace, which was followed by the National Day celebrations at Skansen with the rest of the family, including Prince Carl Philip’s fiancée Sofia Hellqvist. The celebrations finished with a reception at the Royal Palace which was attended by King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip, Sofia Hellqvist and Princess Madeleine.
