I lke how the stamps look. The only complaint that I have is that it looks like the three of them were photoshopped together after single pictures of them had been taken. I also like Estelle and Victoria's hairstyle, especially that of Estelle as it seems to channel the hairstyle of Leonor and Sofia of Spain

Very nice photos. So pleased to see that both Victoria and Estelle are wearing softer hair styles rather than the stiff "helmet" look. JMHO!

Love the stamps. The picture of the three reminds me of Norway. Though it would be nice if they did what the Norweigans do, and actually take a photo together (Haakon, Harald and IA are often shot together). Instead of photo shopping pictures together. It shouldn't have been too hard.

Love Vic's outfit and hairstyle, so soft, would love if she wore her hair like that at an event. Estelle is as cute as ever. Her hair does remind me of one of the Spanish princesses.

I love the stamps! Obviously, it would have been better if they didn't photoshop everyone together, but it's a pretty great job. And Victoria looks like a knockout!

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia attended a couple of weeks ago at the 75th birthday anniversary party of businessman Claes Dinkelspiel. He celebrated his birthday with 320 guests at Wallmans Salonger in Stockholm. Mark Levengood hosted the evening and among the performers were Peter Jöback and The Fantastic Four.

A survey Novus has done on behalf of the Association of The Swedish Advertisers, shows that one in five Swedes think that Crown Princess Victoria is the biggest role model within the Swedish media.
Swedish Advertisers does with market research company Novus ongoing studies of the Swedish people's attitudes to various brands. In the latest online survey about 1,000 people were questioned on 4th-10th February, on the occasion of the International Women's Day March 8: "Who, of the following Swedish female media profiles do you think is the biggest role model for you personally?"
At the top of the list is Crown Princess Victoria. Total 20 percent of Swedes think that she is the biggest female role model in the Swedish media. Among women, the figure rises to 24 percent. TV4 and TV host profile Tilde de Paula gets 10 percent of the votes. Tied for third place on the list are Anja Pärson, Babben Larsson and Robyn, each receive 7 percent of the votes.
Princess Madeleine and princess Sofia received both 2 percent of the votes.

@Lady Finn - I looked over that list. Good for Victoria, bad for Madeleine and Sofia. (Where they throwing shade when they listed Sofia as "Sofia Hellqvist"? ) I'm surprised the queen didn't make the cut. Of of 1000 people polled, only 20 (2%) each saw Madeleine and Sofia good role models. This is not good when you represent the brand that is called the Swedish Royal Family. Hazarding a guess, Madeleine's and Sofia's past reputations may have been a factor in the polling. Throw in the Madeleine vs. Sofia feud that has played out in the tabloids and their individual negative stories in the press may have been that "I-just-can't" moment for these royals when time came to voting. I wish there were a follow up question as to why just to get insight.

hazard a guess, You know how to make it, but I do not think this survey calls for an analysis like this. Where royal mixed with media personalities, who do not have the same media exposure, the same freedom of speech ...
But if you like inquiries, lists, in here is an other one

ÅRETS KVINNOR 2016 - Internationella kvinnodagen 8 mars

This year's Women 2016

On International Women's Day traditionally appoints Expressen year's women.

100 women - who have been successful, courageous or otherwise been role models since March 8 last year.

5
Princess Sofia
31 years.

Conquered not only the prince's heart but also the Swedish people with his work for the needy children of the world. Comparisons with Queen Silvia is not baseless.

You see lists, inquiries, we can find it tens, which will tell you everything and the opposite.

This was a ranking generated by the staff of Expressen in honor of International Women's Day. It does not say how many people Expressen polled to get their rankings. The poll Lady Finn presented showed an outreach. Madeleine and Sofia has had a lot of media coverage, so lack of name recognition could not be a reason for the 2% for each of them.

it is a closed list, so the proposed names, so limited and thenmixed media personalities, entertainment and finally the royals. And with this question :

Who, of the following Swedish female media profiles do you think is the biggest role model for you personally?"

For me, a royal, not part of the media, she can not speak freely about everything and not have the same exposure, so I personally do not see anything in there that we can emerge.

Swedish royal divorce

This odd article came out in Bunte detailing "surprises" in the pre-nuptial contracts of the Crown Princess Couple, the Prince Couple and the Princess Couple.

Victoria, Madeleine & Carl Philip : Überraschende Geheimnisse aus ihren Eheverträgen | BUNTE.de

It doesn't say what prompted the article, and this has been addressed in another paper. Basically each person in the marriage keep what he/she brought in before they said I do, but what gets split in each marriage is odd:

Victoria & Daniel - the Haga household is split between them as well as things they bought together during their marriage. (How do you divide a household?) Does their beach house near Solliden get divided?

Madeleine & Chris - she keeps her investments; he keeps his. Neither gets half of the other.

Carl Philip & Sofia - all each generate in the marriage belong to the individual upon divorce; they split "everday objects" (china & kitchen equipment). So all profits from Carl Philip's businesses earned during the marriage Sofia can't get half. She gets the toaster; he gets the blender. (Frankly I think what Sofia got was hosed in this pre-nup.)

Bunte doesn't address custody of royal children. The trickiest I believe would be for Madeleine. Because they live in London she would have to work out a fair arrangement with Chris and maintain Leonore's and Nicolas's succession rights.

Bunte doesn't address if Sofia and Daniel would keep their titles and the Bernadotte surname if their marriages end.
