She is so lovely and growing up.

I am still anxious for the family pics with Oscar. I cant wait to see Estelle with her little brother. She was so sweet in photos with Leo, I cant wait to see her with her baby brother.

I absolutely adore this little Princess, she is such a ray of sunshine.
I think Princes William and Duchess Kate could learn a thing or two from Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel about balancing the public duties with their private life. They have exposed Estelle to the public in such a way that she doesn't appear to be afraid or apprehensive about being in the public eye, yet she still gets to experience her childhood. I believe she will be very well prepared for her future role, hats off to Victoria and Daniel!!

On one hand I agree that William and Kate could take lessons on how Victoria and Daniel are exposing Estelle to public duties. But, unfortunately, the press in England is nowhere near as courteous as the press in Sweden. I do not think W&K would be as successful in that atmosphere.

The brittish press is not the same as the swedish press, I agree. But in some degree it's a game of give and take in both the UK and in Sweden. As far as I can tell, V&D have released much more pictures of Estelle than W&K has done with George and Charlotte. There is a demand, and as a royal parent you can meet that demand yourself or try to keep the press away (which never works in the long run).

Paparazzis will always be a problem, especially in the UK. I'm not trying to sweep that problem under the rug. It's really bad. But to some degree it's also a question of parenting style. V&D has chosen a somewhat different path than other royal parents. So I agree with Rebafan81 - bringing the little ones to official engagements at a very early age gets them used to being in the public eye, and at the same time gives the press great photo opportunities. Trying to shelter your child from the public eye will sooner or later give everyone a rude awakening. IMO.

I believe that Victoria and Daniel are drawing on Victoria's life experience in bringing up Estelle. Victoria wasn't really seen that often and when she "came out" at 18she still had that nasty little thing called "baby fat". What a name, but it hurt her very much. The stress of her "transition" from child to adult in gala and other public engagements resulted in a nasty case of Anorexia Nervosa which, credit where credit's due, the court did not try to hide but did take steps to distance her during her higher education. The US was a long way away but it allowed her space to enable treatment.

Crown Princess Victoria is a very smart lady and Prince Daniel met her when she was still fighting that disease. They are going to ensure that Estelle and Oscar are raised with all the privacy necessary to ensure their healthy growth and in the full knowledge of their destiny. Their parent's continued love and support will ensure that and a balance of photo's and public appearances, such as Estelle has already been exposed to, continue so the family and the country are served.

I fully agree on that MARG. I think Daniel and Victoria are grat at parenting. It must not b easy to find, what it looks like, a balanced way of exposing their daughter (and now also their son) to the media and the world. I also think that Daniel and Victoria will do their best to shelter and protect her from whatever nasty experience she might getting into in the future. I just hope that, when Estelle reaches that delicate and sensitive age of pre-adolescence, the press will be stil respectful of them all, as it has been all these years.

5 reasons why we love princess Estelle
Princess Estelle is a real little charmer and despite of her young age, she has many fans around the world. It is almost impossible not to like her, here are five reasons to it!

1. She has a bubbly personality and we always see her smile when the family is in public.
2. She likes people and has already taken after her mother and father with greeting kindly on those who want to. Believe indeed that mom Victoria is surprised!
3. She is caring and cares about other people. Here she brings a pacifier to Prince Nicolas when he was sad in his baptism. And she helped her cousin Princess Leonore to stand up when she fell.
4. She is already very good at our stamps (of course, impossible not to be when you're as cute as she is).
5. She is already an expert at waving to everyone she meets, and seems to think it's really fun!

Svensk Damtidning has an article about the photos Kate Gabor has taken of Estelle. Many of those are similar than the photos taken of Haga princesses Margaretha, Birgitta and Désiree, to the book "Tre små sessor" published in 1940. It's a wink to history, just like Victoria loves. When Estelle was born, Victoria and Daniel wanted that the world could get a part of their daughter's life in a natural and open way. And they decided that it would be them who would publish the photos of their daughter, taken by one photographer during the years. Their friends told about Kate Gabor, who was specialized to family and portrait photos. When Estelle was three weeks old, Kate came for the first time to take photos of her. And after that she has taken photos of Estelle many times. Her photos are timeless and warm. And it is hardly a coincidence that Kate chose to shoot Estelle in the same way as Hagasessorna once.
Svensk Damtidning called Kate Gabor, she said:
- As you know I have no comments regarding my photographing assignment for the royal court. But I wish you luck with the reportage, it will be exciting to see it.

Kate Gabor takes wonderful photographs, she really captures Estelle's spirit. As to why SD included a photo by Anna-Lena Ahlström I think it was to illustrate the similarities between pictures taken now and the old pictures of the Swedish Royal children.

Estelle got a Dala Horse as a christening present from the county of Dalarna.

But she got also another Wooden Horse. Upon the birth of Estelle The Wooden Horse Museum Sweden commissioned folklore painter Åse Larsjos to paint "The Little Star" Horse. The first horse was given to Estelle, and 300 pieces of The Little Star horses were made for sale (200 in red, 50 in blue and 50 in pink). SEK 100 of every Little Star horse that was sold was donated to the Foundation "Save the Children".
"The Little Star" at Åse Larsjos blog:

The County Administrative Board of Östergötland has on their website an own website for HQ photos of Estelle's christening presents and the birthday presents Östergötland has given to her (the photo from this year is missing). There are also photos of princess Estelle's salon at the Linköping Castle (the governor's residence), a room that has been dedicated to Estelle and is a part of the representation rooms.

There are also HQ photos of Estelle's visit to Östergötland and inauguration of the fairytale path.
