Nice photos of the family
Also this year, Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle were able to prove that they really can match. The royals wore similar faux fur coats in beige, fitting for the still biting cold.

The Crown Princess was courted by the Armed Forces on the name day at the Royal Palace.
Since the early nineties, the Swedish Armed Forces have celebrated the Crown Princess's Name day with a courtship at the Royal Palace's inner courtyard. As the Crown Princess's birthday is normally celebrated on Öland, the Name day is the annual celebration of the Crown Princess in the capital.
The courtship of the Crown Princess began with music by the Army Music Corps which performed, among other things, Med en enkel tulipan. The music corps concluded with the Victoria fanfare and a fourfold cheer for the Crown Princess.
After the ceremony, the Crown Princess family greeted the congratulators who had come to the Inner Courtyard.

Niklas Larsson, municipal councilor Osby Municipality, has been at Solliden twelve times to congratulate Victoria on her birthday. And today he of course was at the Royal Palace, he posted a photo to his Instagram
"Congratulations on the name day Crown Princess Victoria!
The whole family received at Stockholm Palace today when Crown Princess Victoria has her name day. I also took the opportunity to congratulate Prince Daniel who turns 49.5 on Wednesday, he was so happy about it. Princess Estelle liked Loreen yesterday and Prince Oscar, the Duke of Skåne, was of course congratulated on his 7th birthday afterwards. A very funny but short moment with the Crown Princess and her family."

As every year, Victoria got from the Victoria Battalion the traditional book about the battalion's activities during the year as a gift.

"Today is Victoria's Name day and Marcus Appelgren, the commander of the Victoria Battalion (Second Amphibious Battalion) was on site at the Royal Palace to court H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria with an annual tradition - a photo album with pictures of the battalion from the past year and other gifts. See what else they got?"
Svensk Damtidning writes that Estelle is such an unusual princess - with such a strong aura.
Estelle felt also sorry for the photographers and their frozen fingers:
- You should wear electric gloves next year! she said thoughtfully.
- There are also heating bags.
Cute comment, thought mom Victoria. But above all useful:
- Good tips!

This happy woman tells about the short meeting with Victoria, that Victoria spoke German to her
"... Finally, the Crown Princess took some time to talk to those waiting My personal highlight was a short conversation with the Crown Princess, during which she said, among other things, in German: "Thank you very much for coming here today."
