I don't think she makes excuses. It has been decided that a group photo will not be done/published and that's that.

This weekend there are Family Days in Solliden on both days.
At the program are among others tractor tours for all children, a ride at horse and carriage, the Haga Princesses' old Playhouse is shown, all the park's vehicles are shown. Fairy tales are read and the Royal Stables have a showing.

Queen Silvia, Chris and Adrienne spent a little time at the Days in the morning.

While a group picture would be nice, I'm fine with no group picture, my problem is with how it's communicated. Explaining it is because of different circumstances to me seems a lame excuse unless she is able to specific circumstance made it impossible to release a family picture this year. Maybe you should become their press officer. Your 'it's been decided that a family picture will not be released this year' is straightforward and therefore much better

That is true, if you can't explain more then don't explain at all. Perhaps she is stuck between what she can say and cannot say. It's just weird because they have always been very generous with releasing family photos.
But I disagree with the last part. No authority where it doesn't belong.

We saw queen Silvia's brother Ralf with wife Charlotte, Ralf's son Thomas Sommerlath with his partner Bettina Aussems, and Patrick Sommerlath's son and daughter with the royal family at Laleh's concert on 13th July.
Svensk Damtidning wrote last week at a paywall article, that queen Silvia bridesmaid Carmita Sommerlath was also visiting Solliden.
Expressen quotes Svensk Damtidning's article. At this photo we see Carmita Sommerlath second from left behind Thomas Sommerlath arriving to Victoria's birthday concert.
https://f.cdn-expressen.se/images/30...x9/1280@60.jpg

Carmita Sommerlath is the daughter of Ralf Sommerlath and cousin of Victoria, Carl Philip and Madeleine. Since the key role in the royal couple's wedding, she hasn't seen at the photos of royal events - until now.
Carmita Sommerlath arrived at the Crown Princess's birthday concert in a royal court limousine. She was accompanied by her brother Thomas Sommerlath and his family, writes Svensk Damtidning.
Then she was seen sitting smiling among the guests celebrating her cousin.
For several years, Carmita Sommerlath has been living in Liège, Belgium, with her husband, lawyer Pieree Budinet. This is where the royal family often goes to visit. Among other things, the king, queen and crown princess were present when Carmita Sommerlath celebrated her 50th birthday.
- They have a very good relationship. Then there may be various reasons why she is not involved in everything, but the relationship is good, says Margareta Thorgren.
According to Margareta Thorgren, the relationship is maintained more than can be seen. However, it is usually about unofficial situations.
- They meet often at family events, and most family events aren't official, says Margareta Thorgren.

Victoria, Daniel and the children are on Marstrand, they were seen at Restaurant Societetshuset Marstrand
https://www.instagram.com/p/B0flxRkoj8X/

Svensk Damtidning can tell you that the Crown Princess family is currently on Marstrand. A lovely island that is located along the West Coast and that also suits families with children perfectly. Victoria and Daniel brought Estelle and Oscar to restaurant Societetshuset, which is located right on the water. The restaurant has a wonderful lunch menu, which, not unexpectedly, focuses on fish, seafood and delicious dishes.
They were relaxed dressed up and really looked forward to enjoying the holiday. Victoria had chosen an airy skirt and Daniel wore hats and shorts.
- They are in the Gothenburg district. The whole family is on a private holiday, says Margareta Thorgren.
In addition, Societetshuset on Marstrand has a royal connection! The restaurant was inaugurated in 1887 in Oscar II's honor and has a very popular banquet hall that is rented out to wedding guests, among other things. New for this year is the opening of a newly renovated pop-up restaurant on the upper terrace facing the sea. Maybe that was where the Crown Princess family was having their lunch?

Svensk Damtidning's article about Victoria and Daniel's summer filled with love

If there is something Victoria really wishes for herself, it is more time with her family. And that is what she gets during the warm summer weeks, her family enjoys of sun and peaceful days in Villa Skönvik. After a year with royal duties, Victoria and Daniel have time for each other, for their children. Victoria's early morning jogging tours over Alvaret with Daniel. Riding at paths in the woods with Estelle. And splashing at the pool with the children's cousins. Estelle hangs at the stables and Prince Oscar dribbles round with his beloved football of course. But Solliden also offers a new adventure this year: the hobby horse track at Gustaf V's croquet plane. When the Palace park is closed for the day, Estelle and Oscar and their friends have it all to themselves. In the evenings dinners at the terrace, some just the two of them, and cozy family dinners with Estelle and Oscar with time to talk and laugh. And the rest of the royal family is just a stone's throw away. Svensk Damtidning also writes that we don't know much about Villa Skönvik, because the house is extremely private. A sanctuary where the crown princess family can move freely and a house where they live their quite ordinary summer life. From the house there is only 100 meters to the often quite cold water, but Estelle and Oscar and their cousins have also the pool where to splash. The life here is easier, simpler and more practical for a royal family with children, compared to the Solliden Palace itself where there are so many traditions in the walls and where the rooms are small and the laundry room is old and located in the attic, at the very top.

Today there is the annual Enthusiast Vehicle exhibition in Solliden. There is everything from old fine mopeds, motorcycles, tractors and cars to Koenigsegg's new super sports car Jesko, among others. About 300 vehicles totally. King Carl Gustaf himself participates with two cars and will award prizes to the winning vehicles.
During the day there will also be live music and a lot of fun activities linked to the theme for both children and adults. Several car clubs are in place and give presentations on their respective vehicles. A "People's choice" will be delivered, the visitors can participate and choose their favorite.

On Sunday (Aug 4) the Jesko will meet the Swedish home audience for the very first time! The venue is the Enthusiast Car Show at the Solliden Castle
(The Swedish Royal Family's summer residence) on the island of Öland.

And here is the Jesko in Solliden today:

Obviously the crown princess family is in Solliden again.
Pataholm is in Mönsterås municipality at the Kalmar county.
Marshal of the court Karolin A. Johansson has moved back to her childhood home in Mönsterås.

The Crown Princess family spent parts of July in Bohuslän. At Tjörn the family visited, among other things, the sculpture park "Skulptur i Pilane".
Here you can see the Crown Princess, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar at Jaume Plensa's work "Anna" on Pilane's graveyard.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Works by the artist have previously also been exhibited at the sculpture exhibitions initiated by Prince Daniel at the Royal Djurgården in Stockholm.

Soon it is time for Princess Estelle to start the first class.
But before that, she has enjoyed a long summer holiday with her family - including little brother Prince Oscar.
Here are Crown Princess Victoria's own cute holiday pictures of the siblings.

Such adorable photos of Estelle and Oscar. I love how natural the first photo is - it seems as if it was taken "in the moment". Sweden looks beautiful in the summer; I've only been in the winter but would love to visit at another time of year!

The King and Queen have arrived in Salzburg for Amadeus Weekend and The Salzburg Festival.
Upon arrival, on a scheduled flight which was 20 minutes late, one of the Queen's bags was mislabed and misplaced. The couple are staying for 2 nights at Schloss Fuschl.

This evening they were guest of honor at opening dinner at the Goldene Hirschen before attending the The Vienna Philharmonic Concert.

Christopher O'Neill's mother and sisters chair the Amadeus Weekend and were also in attendance.

Thank you Sarahbellar for the info! It’s fun to see that they are starting to get back after their private summer. How do you find all these articles?

The royal couple stay at Schloss Fuschl, an old hunting castle from the 15th century that was transformed into a resort model de luxe, and last night they coincided with Chris's glamorous mother and sisters Tatjana d 'Abbo and Natascha Abensperg und Traun.
- This is a private visit and the royal couple should also go to a concert, says Margareta Thorgren to Svensk Damtidning.

I think he did, but he walked in front of the queen and others, and isn't at the photos. Perhaps we will get better photos later.
