The picture released are nice but again no Daniel only Victoria and the kids, its a shame IMO as Daniel is the father but seems to be nowhere in family pictures for the past two photoshoots. I am sure they could've timed it better if he was away or busy. The one with Victoria and the kids, it's lovely but I don't like the fact that you can't see Victoria's eye, its just a but weird the hat covering the top part so much.

Victoria looks lovely today and it's nice that Carl and Sophia brought their son to the opening of gates.

Its in the bullets that follow they call him Oscar They call him Alexander through out the article.

Great seeing Alexander out. Isnt Sofia supposed to have the head scarf on? I thought married women wore it.

I miss not see Victoria and Estelle in the outfits, though Estelle was in the photos. I thought Madeleine was still in Sweden and attending events today, I haven't seen her.

I agree on the bolded part. I would like a photo with Daniel and Oscar, but well, at least I got to see him hold his son at the baptism. I think he eventually will appear in the pics.

Oscar is too cute! He looks very funny toot and the picture with Estelle is my favourite so far!

I'm sure we will see Daniel and Oscar at Victoria's birthday, like we saw Daniel and Estelle. But the main thing today is Sweden's National Day.
Victoria and Daniel seemed to have fun

The King's speech, where he told among other things how he spend a lot of time in Sofiero during the last weeks his grandfather lived. "The last weeks of his life, I spent a lot of time here at Sofiero. It was those first few weeks in September, just when summer begins to change to the fall. Then I did many walks here in the park. Alone, or with my sister Christina. With her, I talked about the future. And the realization began to sink in, that I would soon take on a very big task".

"The biggest difference between Sweden and Ethiopia? Democracy!", exclaims Aziza Seid, who was one of those on Sweden's National Day attended a citizenship ceremony in Nacka City Hall.

Part of Victoria's speech:
"You are now Swedes. By citizenship, you have the same rights as all other citizens. When you see the Swedish flag waving in the wind carry with you the feeling you have today. The joy and pride of a community. A community in openness. In democracy. In tolerance. And care for one another.
Sweden is our home. Sweden is our sanctuary. Sweden is now also your responsibility.
Swedish citizens! Welcome! Thank you!"

Nice video of Victoria and Daniel in Nacka. A lot of photographs taken when they delivered the certificates and gifts, everybody wanted to have a photo with them.

SVT's broadcast from the concert starts at 20.00 on SVTplay
Nationaldagen - 6 jun 20.00 _ SVT Play

After the concert there should be a short talk show and then they show the traditional Tapto from the courtyard.

Yes. It seems that he was the whole last week in Stockholm, because he and Madeleine were seen at a restaurant with Carl Philip, Sofia and Alexander, and on Friday he was in Gotland with his family. But like Margareta Thorgren told earlier, he had a work appointment, which "he had tried to cancel, but he couldn't". Well, the swedish National Day is always on 6th June...

Instagram has huge amount of photos of the king and queen in Sofiero today. Here are some - but first a great photo of countess Marianne Bernadotte today. There was a lot of walking in Sofiero, so she got some help. At the Sofiero Jubilee Exhibition "Royal Artistry" are of course also Marianne's husband Sigvard Bernadottes designs.

Yes it would be nice to see Chris more, but he is a private citizen. He works an actual job to help support his family. It was nice that he was in Sweden for Leonor's Gotland trip. I missed seeing Leonor more.

Its great to see royal ladies in their national dresses but when they posed for the group photos, then the men looked like they attended some totally different event

Actually, it doesn't. More, I think you are both being very unfair to call Chris on this.

It has been my experience that appointments or meetings involve more than one person and sometimes just getting everyone in the same place at the same time is a masterly undertaking. Add an international factor and things get even tighter.

Chris is a private citizen and, if he could have been there for his wife I am sure he would have been. However, he was there when it counted, for an important family occasion and I am sure he will be there for the next one.
