19th June is this year the Midsummer Eve, which is a public holiday in Sweden. It is always treated as official holiday by employers, so most employees working regular office hours do not work then. People usually gather with their family and friends to celebrate. So it might be that Solliden is closed earlier so that the staff can also go to celebrate the Midsummer Eve with their families.

Victoria and Daniel have of course hoped, but they have not dared to plan for a summer at Solliden. But on Thursday, the government announced that it would release the restrictions when it comes to traveling within Sweden.
The Crown Princess couple will thus be able to bring Estelle and Oscar to their beloved Öland.
- Now possibilities to travel in Sweden are opening up. So the royal family will spend a period at Solliden as usual, says Margareta Thorgren.
Of course, this is a real joyful message. Not least for Daniel. In the spring he was the royal, except Victoria, who worked most in the king's service. The royal couple moved to Stenhammar when the corona virus became established and has remained there for months. And the Crown Princess couple has been working for the head of state and been responsible for the royal work in the capital.
But soon the prince can look forward to a well-deserved holiday at Solliden. And if we know him right, it will be the usual morning rounds on the golf course. The government's decision also means that Ewa and Olle Westling have the opportunity to go and visit Victoria, Daniel and their grandchildren. But then, of course, they will hang out at a safe distance.

Will the King & Queen also be holidaying at Solliden or are they remaining at Stenhammar? Is it at Solliden that Vic & Daniel have their own small home?

Like I wrote, Margareta Thorgren said to Svensk Damtidning, that the royal family will spend a period in Solliden as always, obviously it means also the king and queen.
Like I posted to this thread previously, at this photo we see the Solliden Palace, Victoria and Daniel's house Villa Skönvik and Kavaljershuset, where Carl Philip and Madeleine's families are staying. All the buildings are at Solliden area owned by the king.
http://imageupper.com/s11/1/3/P159130064156526_1.jpg

Victoria and Daniel's house is not small, it has 328 square meters.
Svensk Damtidning has written about the Solliden Palace:
The Palace itself is 400 square meters on paper, but with all the passages and angles, tile stoves and thick brick walls, the living space itself is 200 square meters. Kavaljershuset has about 500 square meters.

10 years of love - on Midsummer Eve. Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel couldn't get a finer frame for their 10-year wedding anniversary. And Svensk Damtidning can reveal that they will celebrate it at Solliden on Öland. Margareta Thorgren confirms that the king and queen will spend the midsummer weekend on Öland. And that the King and Crown Princess can now meet again.
- Yes it is true. The King and Queen are on Öland during midsummer. The Crown Princess family will also be on Öland this summer. But they are careful to follow the recommendations of the Public Health Agency.
And what does that mean in the case of the King and the Crown Princess?
- That social distancing applies.
So now it is free again for Sweden's head of state and his successor crown princess Victoria to stay in the same place, after strictly following the court's policy for almost three months. But they can only do it under certain conditions:
The celebration of the wedding day will take place outdoors and with observance of safety distance. Something that does not encounter any problems at Solliden, which has such large areas. And if it rains, the solution is likely to be a party tent. When it comes to such solutions, the king is a seasoned party general.
In addition, there is more to celebrate the same day. The King and Queen also have a wedding day, in their case it has been 44 years since they said yes to each other at the Stockholm Cathedral on June 19, 1976.
However, Margareta Thorgren is careful to point out that there will be no big or official celebration. The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel feel strongly with everyone who has had to cancel their weddings, baptisms and other celebrations this summer, and according to what Svensk Damtidning experiences, it will therefore be a more low-key celebration of the wedding day than was initially thought.

We've had rules about physical distancing here since mid-march, just the same as in almost every other European country. That, and wash your hands, stay home if you are sick and all the other general rules. People over 70 have stricter guidelines, including very limited physical contact with people outside their household.

From their summer residence Solliden on Öland, the royal couple sends a midsummer greeting:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“The tradition of celebrating midsummer has deep roots in Sweden. This year, the celebration must be adapted to the circumstances. It is a way to show care for our fellow human beings. With this we want to wish everyone in our country, as well as all Swedes abroad, a bright and happy midsummer weekend. ”

Svensk Damtidning:

When we contact Margareta Thorgren to hear about if Princess Madeleine is coming to Solliden this summer, the answer is:
- I have no update.
In other words, there is a risk that Madeleine will stay in the United States and in that case it will be the first time in her 38-year life that she misses the summer at Solliden. At the same time, the family has set up in their new big house in the lush Pinecrest villa area on the outskirts of Miami, with a pool in the garden, and membership in the private club at Hotel Faena that gives them free access to the private beach and hotel pool.
A small consolation, but still a consolation, when the royal family at Solliden has their barbecue evenings in the royal boathouse down at Kalmarsund.

It has undoubtedly been a different spring for Crown Princess Victoria and the rest of the Crown Princess family because of the corona pandemic. It was also unclear for a long time how and where the family would spend their holidays in view of the previous travel restrictions set by the government. But earlier in June, the restrictions were somewhat released and the limit of a maximum of two hours travel time from home ended.
Then the Crown Princess was finally able to give a happy message to Estelle and Oscar - namely that it will be a long summer on Öland and Solliden! Although it will not be an ordinary birthday for Victoria on Victoriadagen, which will be carried out without a paying audience, it must feel good to be able to breathe out with the rest of the family after a troubled and intense period.
As is well known, Solliden Palace is the royal family's private summer paradise. The family stays in Villa Skönvik, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's private summer place which was inaugurated on Victoriadagen 2013. A big difference for Estelle who lives in a 42-room palace at home but at Solliden has a summer vacation in a decent ordinary villa. The house is shaped like letter H and is built in a modern style with clean lines, large windows, three fireplaces, beautiful floors in limestone and a fantastic view of Kalmarsund. Here the children can run around on the big terrace, swim in their pool and celebrate that summer has come to Öland.
- A lot will revolve around the new dog Rio, but otherwise Estelle probably does something that eight-year-olds like, like swimming in the pool and hanging with grandma. And then she is so lucky to have her own pony, so she will certainly ride with it, says Helena Wiklund, court reporter at Svensk Damtidning.
Victorias glädjebesked till Estelle – efter all väntan _ Svensk Dam

Keep your eyes open: You can soon become neighbours with Victoria and Daniel at the outdoor dining area. Or end up behind Princess Estelle in a ice cream queue!
The Crown Princess family is soon on their way out in Summer Sweden, for a little private holiday before the royal family gathers at Solliden to celebrate Victoria's 43rd birthday on July 14.
So somewhere in Sweden they will be - Victoria, Daniel, Oscar and Estelle. However, the exact destination is, of course, secret, but they visit a new part of Sweden every year. Last summer it was the West Coast and Blå Jungfrun, the fascinating rock island in Kalmarsund, which received a royal holiday visit. Several times they have also been to Gotland, where among other things they visited the former limestone quarry on the island of Furillen and got to learn how to do pottery.
But there will be some new thinking this year:
- This summer, the Crown Princess couple is unusually flexible when it comes to their holidays, given the situation. But of course it is also important for them to be able to recharge the batteries and get time for recovery, it has been an intensive and different spring, says Margareta Thorgren.

Expressen:
Forced to make changes - this will be the summer of the royal family
Victoria's general birthday celebration is canceled and Madeleine risks completely missing the Swedish summer - nothing is the same for the royal family this summer.
But there are beautiful environments at Solliden Palace, boat trips on the sea and love in the air.
The royal family's summer has got a romantic start as all their wedding days are in June. On Midsummer Eve it was 10 years since Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel got married.
“It is hard to understand that 10 years have passed, Victoria and Daniel still radiate love. It is noticeable that they live a happy and rich life and a lot has happened in the family”, wrote royal expert Karin Lennmor in her chronicle.
The Crown Princess couple has many memories from their big day, and they chose to celebrate.
- It will be a special Midsummer Eve - but completely private, said Margareta Thorgren.
Since June 13, symptom-free people can travel in Sweden, and the royal couple were able to travel down to Öland and their summer paradise Solliden Palace to celebrate midsummer.
Daniel and Victoria come to Solliden with their family in July - and also Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia with their sons.
On the crown princess's birthday, the general congratulations outside Solliden Palace is canceled. But the Victoria concert is broadcast in SVT from Borgholm Castle ruin, with only a few invited guests in the audience. The king and Silvia, who are seventy-plus, stay away.
According to the court, Madeleine may not be coming to Victoria's birthday, she and her family are currently stuck in the United States.
- We don't yet know about Princess Madeleine, it is due to US restrictions, says Margareta Thorgren.
It can also be a occasional boat trip for the family. Last year Victoria bought a four-million boat, the Nimbus 365 Coupé model.
- The King is a skilled skipper and the Crown Princess family likes to be at sea, Margareta Thorgren told.

Such a sweet photo - idyllic summer country vibes! I'd love to visit the Swedish countryside in the summer, I've only been in the winter when everything was covered in snow, which was gorgeous as well but it would be an extra treat to see the nature in all its glory.

Daniel has played at Victoriagolfen, which is traditionally organised on 13th July, every year since 2012.

For Prince Daniel, it has become a tradition to play golf on July 13, but if it will be this year too is uncertain.
- We don't know that yet, says Stephan Rimér, CEO of Leroy media who helps organize the celebration.
A tradition that has been important to at least Prince Daniel is the Victoria Golf. It is played the day before the Crown Princess's birthday and usually attracts some prominent guests (such as hockey legend Peter "Foppa" Forsberg) and companies from all over Sweden. Although it will also be played this year, it will be under somewhat different conditions - and how the prince will do is unclear.
- There will be slightly fewer participants this year. We have some limitations, says Stephan Rimér, CEO of the production company Leroy media, which helps organize the Victoria Days.
The golf competition, as usual, takes place at the Ekerum resort Ölands golf course, located on the western side of the island. Besides the fact that there are slightly fewer participants, a change is that the players get to think a little extra during the competition.
- Yes, we adapt to the corona, says Stephan Rimér, adding:
- But the golf rules are pretty clear, so those who played earlier this year know what applies.
A major change is what happens after the competition. Or in this case what's not happening. Usually the day usually ends with a banquet.
- We refrain from this year. There will also be no major award ceremonies this time, says Stephan Rimér.
When Hänt talks to Stephan Rimér on Tuesday morning, he has not yet received a message from Prince Daniel whether he will be taking part this year or not.
- No, we don't know that yet, says Rimér, saying that he cannot answer when the prince will decide.
Will anyone else from the royal house or family attend Victoriagolfen?
- It is usually just Daniel who attends, so I don't think so. Then I would be surprised, says Stephan Rimér.

Svensk Damtidning today:

Victoria and Daniel have traveled to Öland (the photo at the article is from 2016)
It has been a tough spring with many uncertainties, but now Victoria and Daniel have finally got to go to their beloved Öland.
Victoria, Daniel, Estelle and Oscar were seen eating lunch at the Arkösund hotel on Tuesday, which is their traditional stop on the way to Öland. The hotel is located in the Vikboland archipelago outside Norrköping and is an ultimate resting place on the way down to Kalmar and the Öland Bridge.
This is not the first time they have stayed at the hotel, so they seem to appreciate both the food and the service.
We guess that the King and Silvia will be really excited about the opportunity to be visited by their oldest daughter and grandchildren, whom they have been isolated from so long now!
Avslöjar_ Victoria och Daniel på väg till Öland _ Svensk Dam

Finally, the Crown Princess family is on their way to their beloved Öland! It was uncertain for a long time whether the traditional holiday in Öland would get rid of anything at all, with Corona. But in June, the government announced that travel restrictions would cease to apply and it could again travel longer than two hours around the country.
Crown Princess Victoria, who spent every summer of her life on Öland and Solliden, was obviously pleased with the message. This meant that the whole family could leave the city even this summer.
Victoriadagen is obviously at the center of Victoria, although it will be different this year compared to previous years. The celebration will be in Borgholm castle ruin, in a special hall called the Audience Room, and only the royal family will be present.
But a summer at Solliden means so much more than just Victoriadagen. Hiking on the Alvaret, long walks with the dogs, swimming or sauna at the boathouse and many dinners with the family. With a little extra distance from each other this year then of course. Here they can really live without the public's eyes and far from the noise of the big city.
The Crown Princess is eager to give Estelle and Oscar the same wonderful summers that she herself had on Öland as a child with Carl Philip and Madeleine.
And now they are in place. Victoria, Daniel, Estelle, Oscar and the newest addition in the family - dog Rio. On Tuesday, the family was seen eating lunch at the Arkösund hotel, which is their traditional stop during their journey from Stockholm to Öland.
