We have now seen in last two years king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia at a photoshoot at Logården with the crown princess family before the cortege leaves to Skansen. Obviously the king has decided that this is the way it is done.
About the children being at the cortege, the swedish press has told that when Estelle was small, Ewa and Olle Westling were at a car at the back of the cortege and took Estelle home before the cortege arrived to the concert at Skansen. Perhaps it is now the same thing with Oscar. If Carl Philip's and Madeleine's children would be at the cortege, more cars would be needed to take them home, there would be nannies and/or grandparents taking them home. Estelle attended the concert the first time last year when she was six years old. I don't think that after five years when Adrienne is six, we see fifteen members of the royal family at the concert.

Some great photos of the cortege at Bengt Nyman's Flickr account

The concert at Skansen with part of the cortege in the beginning and the Tapto in the end of the video can be seen on SVT play until 6th July.
The Armed Music Corps playing at Logården and the Tapto starts at 1.29.00, and as every year, the royal family comes when the Band has played some marches:

The royal family's historical tradition is broken - no national day celebration at Skansen

The royal family traditionally tend to be guests of honor in the audience during the celebration of the National Day at Skansen.
But this will not be the case this year - celebrations with crowds at Skansen will be canceled and the royal family will not be present at Solliden scene.
National Day is one of the most important celebrations of the year for the royal family. Alongside the Nobel party on December 10 in Stockholm City Hall and Crown Princess Victoria's birthday on July 14, June 6 is counted as a major important day for the royal house.
But this year's National Day will look completely different given the trials the country is going through because of the corona pandemic.
The Swedish National Day Foundation is responsible for the official National Day celebration, and has decided that there will be no celebration at Skansen with the public this year. SVT will nevertheless broadcast a TV program from the Solliden scene with flag raising, solemn speeches, fan surrender, national anthem and artist performances.
“The foundation and its chairman, Speaker of the Riksdag Andreas Norlén, believe that the implementation, as usual at Solliden on the Skansen, with the participation of the royal family, government, parliament and foreign ambassadors and representatives of authorities and organizations and the general public, needs to seek other forms this year. Unfortunately, no audience on the spot is possible", Martin Brothén, secretary general of the Swedish National Day Foundation, writes in an e-mail.
The royal family usually goes from the Royal Palace to the Skansen and takes part in the live broadcast from Solliden's stage - so it will not be this year. But viewers can still expect the royal family to participate from a distance.
- Parts of the royal family will be involved during the broadcast, but they will not physically be at Skansen due to the recommendations and restrictions from the Public Health Agency, says Margareta Thorgren.
For the royal family, the national day usually starts with the opening of the Royal Ppalace, and then the day is packed with visits and program points. Members of the royal family usually go out in the country to join the National Day celebrations. The day is rounded off with a televised celebration from Skansen, where a festive and star-studded concert takes place with the royal representatives on the first parquet.
How will the royal family's national day celebration look like this year?
- It won't look as usual. It is usually celebrated at Skansen and afterwards reception at the Royal Palace - it will not be like that, says Margareta Thorgren and continues:
- We have a plan A, but we plan based on several scenarios. There are changes all the time, we follow the authorities. We have a planning where we are flexible. Gathering around National Day and celebrating our country is perhaps more important than ever. At the same time, it is a state of emergency, for which one must take the highest responsibility.

The King and Queen have not been to Stockholm since the middle of March. But now they are on their way back.
On Saturday next week, the king and queen sit in the car and drive the twelve miles from Stenhammar Castle and into Stockholm. And it will be the first time in eleven weeks.
- Yes, that's right, and that's because of the National Day celebration, says Margareta Thorgren.
- The royal couple has not moved from Stenhammar during this period, but now they plan to be in Stockholm.
- The celebration at Skansen will follow the tradition in the parts where possible, and the king will participate with a brief speech from the Royal Palace.
Will other parts of the royal family also be in place at Royal Palace?
- No, we are following the recommendations of the Public Health Agency. So only the royal couple.
And what about the Tapto in the evening, will it be done?
- Yes, it will be a traditional tapto, so it is planned.

The king and queen leave the quarantine at Stenhammar Castle. In connection with the National Day, they go to Stockholm.
- It will be a different celebration this year. They are at the Palace only during the day, says Margareta Thorgren.
Digital job meetings, dog walks and video calls with children and grandchildren. They take turns walking with dog Brandie.
For the king and queen, life is different during corona times, where they have been isolated at Stenhammar Castle outside Flen.
Only the royal couple live at Stenhammar with the king's aide-de-camp nearby. All to protect them from the corona virus.
On Friday, however, it was clear that his majesty and Silvia - for a day - leave the quarantine. On National Day, June 6, they go to the Royal Palace.
The king will not take part in the celebration at Skansen, but will receive The Royal Swedish Army Band that plays traditional tapto at Logården in the evening.
- The royal couple is just over the day at the Palace. On the evening of National Day, they return to the quarantine at Stenhammar, says Margareta Thorgren.
- It will be a different national day celebration for them. On the other hand, the royal couple and the royal family are trying to pay attention and celebrate the day this year, which is perhaps more important than ever.
The National Day celebration is broadcast in Sweden's Television. In this broadcast, the king and queen participate. No one else in the royal family is present.
- The restrictions still apply, and they are of course followed in the future, explains Margareta Thorgren.
Did you discuss back and forth how you would do?
- It has been a planning with different scenarios and alternatives. All the time, the recommendations of the Public Health Agency have been followed, and the travel restriction is two hours. They can drive to the Royal Palace.
It takes an hour and a half from Stenhammar Castle to Stockholm.

That´s rather poor comparing to Norway´s National Day this May - I mean, Sweden had much less lockdown (there wasn´t actually any in Sweden!) and distancing rules than Norway or Denmark...!

Contrary to what many foreigners believe Sweden does have quite stringent distancing recommendations. Like all Swedes over the age of 70 the King & Queen have been advised to isolate themselves from interactions with people outside of the family group.

Yes, they could. But the king and queen have during the years spent more and more of their free time in Stenhammar Castle. King Carl Gustaf had always dreamed of becoming a farmer. "Something in forestry and agriculture" he himself has expressed it several times. And in Stenhammar he can do just that.
King Carl Gustaf said at his speech in Stenhammar last year:
"For the Queen and me, Stenhammar is a second home"
and on the Stenhammar Day in 2013
"Yes, Stenhammar is a piece of the earth where I also feel that I belong to in a very special way."

The Swedish National Day Foundation is also responsible for the official national day celebration this year.
With the trials that the country, together with an entire world, is going through, this year's National Day celebration will be both special and important.
The foundation and its chairman, Speaker of the Riksdag Andreas Norlén, believe that the celebration, which is usually held at Skansen, with the participation of the royal family, the government, parliament and foreign ambassadors and representatives of authorities and organizations and the public, need to seek other forms this year.
Unfortunately, no audience on site is possible.
However, we look forward to being able to achieve a worthy national day celebration at Skansen this year, which can be followed by the TV broadcast (SVT1 and SVT Play) regarding the ceremonies with flag raising, solemn speeches, fan handover, national song and artist performances.
In this way, we can all together and close pay attention to and celebrate our national day this year, even if we are allowed to keep a physical distance to each other.
We look forward to being able to have with the royal couple, the prime minister and the Speaker in the broadcast. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven gives this year's speech.
At the program, with the program leaders Anne Lundberg and Tara Moshizi, will also participate The Royal Swedish Army Band and artists from all over the country.
National Day and the broadcast traditionally concludes with a tapto from the Royal Palace with The Royal Swedish Army Band.

What a great surprise to get these photos already today, I was expecting them tomorrow morning.

Obviously because the king doesn't wear a folk costume, Daniel and Carl Philip don't wear it either. We have seen Daniel at the Ockelbo costume when he and Victoria visited Ockelbo in 2011, the folk costumes were a wedding gift to them.

I prefer the king's choice, that the men don't wear folk costumes. Daniel looks great at his suit with the little swedish flag.

That's cute. Just a pity that somehow the Swedish royals always leave it to the women and children to dress in folk costumes and don't have the men participate.

I especially like the one with Estelle and Oscar posing under the tree.

I think it's a shame that the royal men don't wear the traditional folk costumes which can be used even at formal Royal white tie galas.

I agree. I'd say either you have both wear the folk costumes or neither. The Norwegians picked 'both'; many royal house pick 'neither' but Sweden has this in-between version where the women are supposed to parade in folk costumes while the men don't bother to do the same. It feels a bit as if the men are 'above that' but are happy to 'show' their wives and children in folk costumes. I'm sure it isn't intended that way but still...

Finally little Oscar in his traditional outfit. Very cute.

A shame the royal men dont. Daniel looks out of place in his suit. I doubt the King would stop him from wearing his traditional outfit.

I like how in Norway we see Haakon in his. Although Sverre has stopped wearing his. In Denmark while not the Danish outfit it was lovely to see all of the CP family while visiting the Faroe Islands and Greenland with their traditional outfits.

It will be a slimmed national day celebration with the royal family this year.
But those who want to get a glimpse of the Palace can get a guided tour of Crown Princess Victoria - on social media.
- Those who had been looking forward to coming to Royal Palace can at least visit the castle digitally, says Johan Tegel at the court's information department.
Tomorrow is Sweden's National Day. Then the royal family are usually in focus, but since the situation is as it is, there are a lot of changes in the traditions.
The royal couple, Carl XVI Gustav and Silvia, have been in a kind of quarantine at Stenhammar castle in Sörmland since March.
Both are over 70 years of age and thus in the corona virus risk group. On National Day in honor, however, they go to Stockholm throughout the day.
At the Palace, the king will record a television speech, without audience, which SVT broadcasts in the evening. The tradition of The Royal Swedish Army Band's great tapto from Logården at the Palace remains, but it becomes a very small audience. Only the royal couple, Speaker of the Riksdag Andreas Norlén and Prime Minister Stefan Löfven are in place.
We others can watch the television broadcast in the evening. This year the king and queen do not go to Skansen in the evening, as they usually do.
- The royal family will not participate in Skansen, says Johan Tegel.
Traditionally, the Palace has "open house" on National Day with activities for all visitors. This is not the case this year. Instead, Crown Princess Victoria will showcase selected parts of the Palace on Facebook and Instagram.
- It is usually a member of the royal family who opens the Palace and welcomes the visitors. The Crown Princess has instead chosen to open the Palace digitally and showcase some of the halls, says Johan Tegel.
According to information to Aftonbladet, Daniel, Estelle and little Oscar will appear next to Victoria.
- Never before have you seen so much of Estelle and Oscar. The whole family really offers themselves, says a person with insight in the production.
But the court does not want to reveal any details about the tour.
- We must return to that. But this is a reduced celebration this year, says Johan Tegel.
Kronprinsessan Victoria på slottet på nationaldagen _ Aftonbladet

But now everyone is wondering why Prince Daniel has a dark suit? Why shouldn't we see him in province costume?
This is how information officer Johan Tegel from the court answers :
- The tradition does not look so simple. In adulthood, the men in the Royal Family do not usually wear national costume, even if it has happened.
- Prince Daniel has an Ockelbo costume, which he is proud of and which he has worn before. But when shooting was done for National Day, the Crown Princess family wore costumes from their duchies.
Nya charmbilderna på Victoria, Estelle och Oscar _ Svensk Dam

Tomorrow is National Day and Victoria has already started the celebration together with Estelle and Oscar in national costume!.
Estelle has turned eight and Oscar is four, and previously we have only seen them in the blue and yellow Sweden costume.
But now they have got new nice costumes sewn and the choice was both difficult and easy. Of course, Estelle's costume would come from her Duchy of Östergötland. But then there are many parishes and costumes to choose from.
Finally, it was a summer costume from Skedevi, located in the municipality of Finspång, a few miles north of Norrköping.
The same goes for Prince Oscar, Skåne's own mini-duke. It became a costume from Ingelstad herded - and Ingelstad is a town located just south of Växjö.
The duchies plays a clear role in the royal family's life, and when it was time for Princess Estelle to do her young life's first royal assignment at the age of two, Linköping was the obvious choice.
Duke Oscar was a little more discreet when he made his entry into Skåne, it actually happened completely incognito. But then Victoria offered some great pictures from the big day.
Victoria herself wears her Vadsbro costume in the pictures, and she has had it ever since she was in her teens.

Estelle & Oscar are adorable in their traditional attire. Estelle is tall. Cute pictures.

I do wish the Swedish men would wear the costumes. Sorry but its one day a year. You can wear your suit other days. The women do it.


I love that Victoria and the kids are wearing outfits from their duchies. Such a wonderful touch

Its also nice seeing different costumes from various regions. Not the standard blue and yellow we normally see.

Estelle sure is getting tall. Such sweet photos of them all.
