Svensk Damtidning has an article about Victoria's and Daniel's wedding anniversary on Monday. The magazine quotes Victoria's words at her interview for TV4. It also writes that their friendship turned soon to a deep love. They both wanted to have children and joked that they could give their future child name Benny, after Daniel's gym colleague Benny Johansson. But it became little Estelle and then also little Oscar. Their dream about "being more than the two of them" became true.
Damtidning writes also that to the question if Daniel has succeeded in what he promised on their wedding day - to do everything he could to keep Victoria as happy as on that day - the answer is surely: yes, yes, yes!

Victoria is mentioned at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs video from last year "Sweden and the United Nations. Pushing for peace.".
Folke Bernadotte is mentioned too. Sweden joined in the United Nations in 1946 and the video celebrates its 70 years in the UN.

It must be him, with his daughter. It's great that they can visit (almost) without getting recognized

Victoria is again this year on magazine Mama's list of 33 most powerful mothers in Sweden. Mama has listed 33 most powerful mothers, in no particular order.

Heir to the Throne: HRH Crown Princess Victoria, 39
HRH Crown Princess Victoria, 39, may not have any formal political power, but the impact of everything she does and says is hard to measure. We look at her clothes (willingly Swedish designers or why not mom Silvia's clothes from the 70s?), engage us in the growth of princess Estelle, 5, and Prince Oscar, 1, and hang with her environmental commitment. A more easily loved monarch can be hard to find.

Karin Lennmor, the former editor-in-chief of Svensk Damtidning, starts today as Expressen's royal commentator. She writes at her first chronicle about Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister (whom she and the other representatives of the media called Armour-Alice) and Victoria.

Thank you our wonderful ordinary Victoria!
I think of Crown Princess Victoria and how her relationship with the Swedish people and the media has deepened over the years.
Once in the 90's, the comedian and stand-up artist Anna-Lena Brundin said about the Crown Princess: "Thanks Victoria, because you are so abnormally normal."
Victoria was barely 20 years old, and had just frankly told she was suffering from eating disorders. It was the start of some kind of love relationship between her and the Swedish people, because she dared to be so open.
Today, about 20 years later and close to her 40th birthday, the popularity of the Crown Princess is, to say the least, enormous. In the Demoskop survey published by Expressen in late April, Victoria is the bright winner, both in terms of popularity and trust, when the Swedish people chose their favorite in the royal house.
And of course, the secret is obvious - she is so abnormally normal.
Being a royal is about a balance between being majestic and popular. Here good advisors can do wonders. It's a conscious construction, a royal is never alone.
In Victoria's case she obviously gets plus points for:
She dares to cry, show feelings and cohabitation when Sweden is hit by terror.
She has an enviable ability to see people in her vicinity - a trait she inherited from her mother.
She and her family sneak into Stockholm's largest sports chain to shop for ski equipment for the children when Twixmas sale!
She dresses in H & M clothes ....
She goes to Pressbyrån in Borgholm and buys Piggelin (ice glass) and sweets.
She is now an equally valuable brand for Sweden as Ikea or Volvo.
She laughs on her own expense in almost every public context.
It is of course the crown princess's casual way and feet-on-ground mentality that gave her her popularity. But we must not forget that she also had huge help of today's Armour-Alices: above all her husband, a handful of close friends and Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg, who has been her mentor. People who helped her to become and be a crown princess.
Hopefully, it will be a long time before we see her as Sweden's regent.
I remember Victoria's answer when she at one point was asked how she felt that one day she would become queen. She answered:
- Sad. Because that means that my dad is dead.
Thank you Victoria for being like us, because you replied as we would all do.
Thank you for being so abnormally normal!
Tack vår underbart vanliga Victoria! _ Karin Lennmor _ Expressen

According to Instagram. Victoria and Daniel met swedish singer Zara Larsson at Haga Palace on Monday, she visited there with her mother.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BWGNXWLl...y=zarapictures
https://twitter.com/lilmixus/status/882143589303799808

Aftonbladet tells that Zara Larsson's mother Agnetha put the photo to her Facebook and from there it came to Internet. Court's information officer Ulrika Näsholm confirms that Victoria and Daniel met Zara Larsson and her mother, she didn't to say exact day, said just "they met this week". Näsholm said also that it was a private lunch and she doesn't comment it more than that.
Information from a person with insight said to Nöjesbladet that the meeting was about that the court wants engage the star in one of their organizations.
The Crown Princess is involved in several different organizations, including the Royal Academy of Music.
When Aftonbladet's Nöjesbladet contacts Zara Larsson's mother Agnetha, she doesn't want to go into the meeting.
- We met them, I was there to support. But more information about this will come later, she says.
However, she denies the rumors that Zara Larsson would perform at the birthday celebration in Öland.
- No, I can say that she will not because we are going to a wedding for my nephew. She was asked but thanked no, the family goes first, she says.
She praises the lunch and the host couple.
- They were really super nice, Crown Princess Victoria is really so humble and sympathetic, as Daniel said in that video recently, she says.

With Victoria's winning smile and wonderful personality she will make a monarchist of him in no time. What beautiful pictures of Victoria and her family with this young man. Just a mom out walking the children and teaching the youngest to ride a bike.

I had no idea that Daniel speaks Portuguese! Didnt he make some real estate investments in Brazil a few years before he married Victoria? If so maybe thats when he learnt the language.

The Pride Week in Stockholm starts today, and swedish Gala Magazine pays tribute to Victoria delivering the Prize "Gay of the Year" to Jonas Gardell in 2013.
Gala pays tribute to Victoria's direct and so important statement
Victoria got standing ovations and in TV4's "Kronprinsessan Victoria 40 år" with Ebba Kleberg von Sydow, Jonas Gardell about the feeling Victoria making this important statement:
- Why are we so excited about the Crown Princess? I think it has to do with the need to understand how long our path has been to be introduced into society. And whatever you think about the Crown Princess, she is the premier representative of Sweden and she comes to us. You can not estimate how much we loved it and how much it wasneeded. And purely historically, probably no other royal house in any country has made that kind of recognition. I think she understood the political value of what she did and because of that she will have our never-ending thanks, says Jonas Gardell in the program.
The article has video of the QX-gala and Victoria delivering the Prize

I reckon these photos were taken a while ago, but here in Britain it's been like a winter day today. We've had non-stop rain and I would have definitely dressed a baby like Oscar in what he was wearing today. Perhaps it's the same in Sweden. Also, even though these photos were posted on Victoria's birthday, they could have been taken earlier and posted as a happy birthday wish - maybe the poster wanted to save them for her birthday.

On another note, the photos are adorable! I love Oscar's little hat. In the second photo he looks like a clone of his older sister.

When you look at the clothes of Victoria, Oscar and this woman, and the people on the background, I think that the photos have been taken in the spring, perhaps in April or May.

Svensk Damtidning told yesterday, that Victoria and Daniel attended yesterday at their friend Cristina Stenbeck's 40th birthday party at an island at Stockholm archipelago. 250 guests have arrived from all over the world (Cristina's mother is from USA and her husband Alexander Fitzgibbons is british), and many of them stay at the Grand Hotel. Cristina's birthday is on 27th September but she celebrates already now.
In addition to Victoria and Daniel, among the guests are H&M family Persson and Caroline Kreuger Nilsson. There is a big party tent and the celebration continues for three days.
Svensk Damtidning will have an article and photos of the party at their next issue, no photos at the article.

Cristina Stenbeck is one of the experts at Prince Daniel's Fellowship and CS Stiftelse för nästa generation (Cristina Stenbeck Youth Foundation) is a founding partner of Generation Pep (GEN-PEP).
