Sorry to hear it but its natural that you have work to do on Monday.
I think its good that Chris O'Neill chooses to work for his money and he did not choose the title so he could cut a couple of ribbons per month . Now he's able to support himself [and his family] and he's not living off the Swedish taxpayers! And if he has to miss some events where Swedish Royal family attends, then its just unavoidable. Sorry for Princess Madeleine though. Once again she has no husband next to her on National Day events (I have a feeling that gutter press will see it as a chance to write some nasty article ).

we will see surely Estelle and Leonore :)

Estelle and Leonore will get the steal the show

Princess Madeleine and Crown Princess Victoria has, reportedly, a plan for the National Day celebrations.

- There have been many positive reactions after Prince Oscar's baptism on the little princesses' participation, says Margareta Thorgren, CIO at court.

It's been almost a week ago Prince Oscar was baptized in the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace.

Princess Estelle and Princess Leonore managed to attract attention with anything from small bags in the aisle into spontaneous dance at the font.

- There were very positive reactions to so many of the young royals were in the church, says Margareta Thorgren.

Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill took a late decision to allow children to participate.

- With small children you can never really plan. The aim was that they would be with, and now it was possible to arrange, says Margareta Thorgren.

- Children of baptism is always appreciated and including social media, we have noticed many positive reactions.


Madeleine has reportedly spoken to sister Victoria that they should bring the children in the procession to the National Day celebrations at Skansen. The royal family will as in previous years in the late afternoon ride in a horse and carriage from the Royal Palace to Skansen.

Estelle has been attending since she was 1. Will be nice to see Leonor this year as well. I wonder if we may see Nicolas but they may decide he is a bit young this year.

On June 6, it's time to welcome our new Swedish citizens living in Nacka.
This year crown princess Victoria and prince Daniel visit the ceremony.
- We are very proud of people living in Nacka whom we may welcome now as new Swedish citizens. A little extra special it will be when we get to do it together with the Crown Princess couple, says Lars Stenholm, the municipal council chairman.
Nacka was the first municipality that began with Citizenship Ceremony to welcome the local residents who have become Swedish citizens already 15 years ago. Since then, many municipalities have done the same. Around 100 people who received Swedish citizenship last year have signed up for the ceremony. The new citizens get a commemorative certificate and a commemorative gift.

SVT1 broadcasts the National Day celebration in Skansen at 20.00 and it will be shown at SVTplay.
The National Day is celebrated royally at Solliden stage at Skansen. This year host Pernilla Månsson Colt takes care of a number of well-known artists, members of the royal family, diplomats, the audience in place and the TV screen. When the festivities are concluded at the Solliden stage the live broadcast continues with a talk show at Skansen, where invited guests talk about national day celebrations. The broadcast ends with the traditional tapto from the Royal Palace.

I am looking forward into the Swedish National Day, it will be nice to see the RF participating in the celebrations. I have an exam on June 6, so it will be nice to come home and relax by looking at all the photos!

Leonore first attended the National Day celebrations when she was about 5 months, in June 2014 - she was younger than her little brother, so perhaps there's a chance that we can see Nicolas this year (Nicholas was born after the National Day celebrations so we didn't see him last year of course).

Now that is the perfect national day greeting The picture is so sweet. I guess we did get to see Oscar today even if not in person

I love the one with Victoria and both kids. It is so sweet

But I think my favorite is the one with Estelle and the sheep

I do find it odd another series of a few photos and still no Dan He has only been in the christening photos with his son. And even in the official photos, Victoria is holding him. Daniel at least holds him in the ceremony. It would have been great for Daniel to be with them in this lovely picture set, in a comfortable informal photo unlike the christening.

But still so happy for new photos.

Cute photos! I agree about Prince Daniel. Wish he was in the photos even though Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar are the focus.

ETA: Could Estelle or Oscar be wearing clothes previously worn by Victoria, Madeleine or Carl Philip? More clothing Queen Silvia saved.

Cute photos indeed.
Little Oscar looks soooo cute. Love his eyes.
I also wish they had included Prince Daniel. But I have to say that I do not like Kate Gabor's photos very much.

I love the way Kate Gabor takes photos of children. Like Svensk Damtidning wrote at their article, she has clearly watched the old photos taken of the king and the Haga princesses as children, and takes sometimes similar photos of Estelle, and now of Oscar, of course. I think that it is a way for Victoria to connect with her grandparents, who lived at Haga, but whom she never met.
But anyway, in Gabor's photos the children are natural and lovely.

And live-Tv at the website of the Sofiero Palace, wow, there is lot of people. Countess Marianne Bernadotte is also there.

Photos of the king's and queen's visit to Sofiero are updated here:

There is really a big celebration at Sofiero. But they are celebrating the National Day and their 150th anniversary, so it is only natural, great to see so much people there. And the king and queen are visiting Oscar's duchy.

It seems that photos are also updated to Sofiero Facebook, there is already a couple of photos

Nice to see the Mistress of the Robes, Kirstine von Blixen-Finecke, helping countess Marianne. There is a lot of court staff, also the First Lady of the Court, Anna Hamilton is there, and the First Marshal of the Court Mats Nilsson and Marshal of the Court Lars-Erik Tindre, major general Håkan Pettersson, queen's lady-in-waiting Harriet Bredelius and the king's aide-de-camp.

I find it very surprising that Daniel seems to be fading from the "important" family photos. We didn't see him with his son in the initial photos, saw him with his son once in the Christening photos and now, on National Day, he's the invisible dad.

I think Gabor could not capture Princess Estelle's natural charm and the photos looked posed and not natural at all (not to mention too waxen features; why photographers feel the need to photoshop children's faces I do not understand!!!). Personally I liked the pictures of princess Leonore running on the Gotland meadow much more. These were natural and showed her enjoyment. Gabor's pictures were just okay-ish but I think that they could have been better. Anyway, its good to see new pictures of The Crown Princess couple, even if it was san Prince Daniel!

Lol. I know it is not funny but how could they do it? If you are a journalist, a real journalist and not a "fauxtojournalist", you should research databases and sources, and before you publish an article you might proofread if there are mistakes or not. Those are basic principles of journalism, please. And where are editors? DailyFaily at their best, of course!
I like Victoria's dress. It is summery, and Vickan looks great.
