The Marshal of the Realm, Svante Lindqvist, told at his speech that Daniel should also visit GEN-PEP's activities at the Inner Courtyard later today.

The king and queen arrived to Kronoberg County and Kosta Boda

This year Carl Philip came out from the gates and then the gates were open. So he didn't open them traditionally.

I agree. I also think (and I suppose I'm the sole human being on this planet) that it's incredibly boring that it's only Estelle (and now Oscar) every single year. I simply don't care for them.
Hopefully a little alternation will occur in the years to come. There are more grandchildren around (of course also depending on the coverage the other parents want for their children, I understand that).

I think the focus is on Estelle and Oscar is that Estelle is a future queen (fifth queen regnant in Sweden's history) and Oscar is third in line to the throne. There's little chance the other children (Leonore, Nicholas, Alexander and Baby Bernadotte-Hellquivst no. 2) would ever ascend; therefore, there's less focus on them.

As a Finn, I was incredibly touched about Victoria's speech. She said at her speech:
"Just a few days ago, our neighbor Finland celebrated 100 years of independence. Finland and Sweden have strong ties historically. Very many Swedes have their roots in Finland. Here in Järfälla, more than every tenth inhabitant has a connection with Finland.
Due to the Finnish anniversary year, I participated a couple of months ago in a wreath laying ceremony at the Finnish monument in Stockholm. There I met some of the surviving Swedish veterans who participated as volunteers in the Finnish Winter War 1939-1940. It was a meeting that made a great impression on me - those soon 100 years old Swedes, who once asked the question "What can I do to help?"
For them, the answer was to join as volunteers in Finland in the war. Others donated money or made civilian efforts. Many chose to open their homes for one of the 70,000 Finnish children who came to Sweden during the war years. Children who often could not speak a word Swedish. Children who brought an address tag around their neck".

The king's speech
H.M. Konungens tal i Växjö på Nationaldagen, tisdag den 6 juni 2017 - Sveriges Kungahus
Translation

The sun welcomed Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel to the National Day celebration in Järfälla. They arrived at Görväln Castle just after half past twelve and were welcomed by several thousand people who were celebrating the national day in the castle park. Several children ran to the Crown Princess couple when they arrived and left presents in the form of drawings.
Then Victoria and Daniel sat and listened to several musical performances, including a children's choir from the Iljansbodaskolan and Kolarängskolan.
Victoria and Daniel applauded the children who sang from the scene.
In her speech, Victoria also talked about how Sweden responded to the terror attach at Drottninggatan in April.
- Terror aims to create fear and fragmentation. But the Swedes responded by showing courage and cohesion. We should remember that and be proud of today, on Sweden's National day.
After her speech, Victoria went down from the stage and sat next to Prince Daniel. They jointly sang the national anthem together with the people.
After that, students at Järfälla Gymnasium performed Syrian music, something that seemed to be appreciated by Victoria and Daniel, who both seemed to like the music.

I agree - This is a National Day celebration, and right now, the King is still on the throne so the focus should still be on the King’s family, hence his three kids & five grandkids should participate and be recognized.
When Victoria ascends the throne, then all the focus can be switched to her family only.

Today is the National Day celebration, an official celebration. The royal couple and crown princess couple are the official representants of the royal family. The king's birthday is more a family celebration, that is the day when the other grandchildren could be seen if they are "on the mood".

TV4 has also a live-TV of the cortege

All members of the royal house- (King, Queen, Victoria, Daniel, Carl Philip, Sofia, and Madeleine) are official representatives of the realm, what differs among them are the number of engagements carried out.

I agree with other posters, who would have liked to see the other kids, pictures at least, always seeing Estelle, and Oscar only, is incredibly boring, and at this stage all the kids have the same rank- grand kids of the King, HRH's, princes/esses, and dukes/duchesses. Maybe things will change as they grow up, but one group picture would have been nice

Barbro Hultman, a royal expert who has been a journalist and also worked at the royal court and is quite close to the royal family (and has written the book "I den kungliga kulissen), pointed just out at Expressen's live studio, that the royal court/family doesn't do anything by chance, everything is planned. That is why there aren't any other grandchildren than Estelle at the cortege. Hultman said that Estelle will be trained differently than the other grandchildren, it has already been seen many times that that she can handle these kind of situations and the court doesn't want anyone to take the attention from her, because she is the heir to the heir.

We can also see how the royal court emphasizes the role and work of Victoria and Daniel, and here is a good indication of it
From the court Instagram, the Royal Family poses with GEN-PEP staff before they left to Skansen.

I don't think it is boring to see only Estelle who will be the next queen of Sweden after her mother and Oscar whio is third in the list of sucession, they are more important than the other grandchildren of the king even if they have the same age.
They are the future of the monarchy and they are the children of the crown princess.

Thanks for providing this information :)!! as always you provide a lot of information to this forum, but still if they couldn't attend the cortege one picture would have been very welcome. However....if they are training her to believe she's more important than other people, already at the age of 5, then, God help her, and her reign

TBH I don't like how Gen-Pep seem to have hijacked this years open palace, (thats how it looked on the internet at least)

GEN-PEP is a non-profit organisation which of course has the right to promote their activity. They have social media and use it to get more people to work to that all children and young people in Sweden should have the ability and desire to live an active and healthy life. Of course they use an event like this to show photos of their work.

Barbro Hultman told at the studio previously today, that coffee is sold at the courtyard at Open Palace and when she was still working, the income was donated to Crown princess Victoria's Fund.
