From yesterdays photos, it seems that Victoria and family gave the police gingerbreads at the Victoria can. It is sold with gingerbread at the Royal Gift Shop:
The pattern of the can: Architect F.W. Scholander was commissioned by King Karl XV in 1865 to redesign the Victoria Hall at the Royal Palace. Scholander designed the pattern for the ceiling in white with gilded latticework and gilded royal crowns. In an old undated drawing, the room is called Segersalen. This is probably why it was renamed the Victoria Hall in 1865, after the Roman victorious goddess Victoria.

Svensk Damtidning's article about the royal Christmases in Haga and Drottningholm.
SD writes in the article that it is said that already at their first Christmas at Haga Palace, Victoria started a Christmas custom: before Christmas she invites her friends and their children to make Christmas gingerbreads in their big kitchen. You can easily understand how much Estelle and Oscar are waiting for this day.

The King began his speech:
On the day before yesterday, the day before Christmas Eve, I had the joy of gathering my children and grandchildren at Drottningholm to celebrate the Queen's birthday. This is how Christmas begins in our family.
He spoke also about how crime of various kinds creates insecurity in the society. And how the climate continues to change, which introduces us to completely new situations. He spoke also about children and young people and said:
I think of all of you teachers and leaders who help children and young people tofind their place in existence - believing in themselves and their ability. Your efforts are crucial to Sweden's future.
He thanked also everyone who is working during the Christmas holidays.
In the end of his speech he said:
Earlier this year I made a decision to delimit what is called the Royal House. The decision means that it is made clear who within the royal family will act as official representatives of Sweden in the future. For me, this is a way of clarifying what expectations are.
Hopefully it can be helpful when my grandchildren will eventually stand out for their own future. But, to that day, it is far away.
Right now, the Queen and I are looking forward to spending time with our family. We now have seven small grandchildren between one and seven years. It's not always so calm and still but very fun!

Aftonbladet told some days ago that the king was shopping Christmas presents at Akademibokhandeln and left the bookstore with seven books.
The queen has also been on the move and bought Christmas presents. Our eyewittness tells that last Saturday she was seen at the NK department store and just like the king she looked around at the bookstore. There she bought the book Nobel, which was released this fall.
The book is written by the award-winning author and journalist Ingrid Carlberg and has received fantastic reviews. Maybe it was the book that lay under the Christmas tree as a present to the king this year? The queen was also seen buying green cabin baggages designed by Bernadotte & Kylberg as well as two top cases from Horizon!

Svensk Damtidning:
Christmas photos from Victoria and Daniel and Carl Philip and Sofia. But not a single word from Madeleine. Now many are wondering why the Florida Princess is not showing up.
Not a greeting, not a photo. It was a Christmas far away from the public light for Princess Madeleine. While the Crown Princess family visited Norrmalm's police station on Christmas Eve and Carl Philip and Sofia shared a lovely family picture, December 22, Madeleine and Chris kept quiet.
According to reports to Svensk Damtidning, the Princess Couple celebrated with Chris's family in the English countryside. Madeleine's sister-in-law Tatiana d'Abo's nobleman John Henry d'Abo lives as you know on a 1700-century goods near Cambridge. A gigantic property that has become a focal point for the O'Neill family. Mom Eva is often there and children Leonore, Nicolas and Adrienne love to run around on the big estates.
But now the schools have started in Miami and the family has traveled back to their American lives.
How have they been? It knows only the innermost circle. This is the first Christmas that we have not heard from Madeleine. The Princess is otherwise a frequent user of social media and is happy to share photos of the children. But during these festive days, the Swedish people have neither seen any photos nor received any Christmas greetings.
There have been many speculations on why Madeleine, who is a princess of Sweden, has not talked about - or shown photos of - her Christmas celebration. Some have, of course, drawn links to the king's decision to shrink the royal family on titles, earlier this fall. And maybe the princess wanted this Christmas to be celebrated in private. The media pressure following the King's decision has been a huge one and perhaps Chris and Madeleine wanted this leave for themselves.

The Crown Princess Family's Christmas Greeting video from 2014 has been watched 2 million times.

It is the most watched video at Kungahuset's Youtube.
