The royal family celebrated the National Day at Skansen. For Daniel Westling it was the first time he attended the official celebrations. When the king went up on stage, he surprised everyone by making an emotional speech to pay tribute to his future son-in-law.
- In summer occurs one very important event in the House of Bernadotte's history. Our oldest daughter is getting married, said the king before he was interrupted by applause from the public.
Since the king was unusually personal, with real pride in his voice, he addressed himself directly to Victoria and Daniel.
- It takes just a brief look at her and her fiance to understand that yes, they seem quite satisfied and happy about their decision.
Victoria was noticeably moved by the warmth of her father's speech. Both she and Daniel beamed with happiness after the king's tribute and smiled wide at each other.

Beautiful speach from the King today on our National Day!

The King once again spoke about his joy from their upcoming marriage and Carola sang 'Det är bara vi' (It's just us two) to the couple.
It was very sweet and both Victoria & Daniel held hands tightly during the song.
You can listen to the song here

Fashion wise I loved Victorias hair. Daniel looked more relaxed and very handsome. :)
 
Thanks to all for providing the lovely pictures and videos.:flowers:
 

Crown Princess Victoria looks wonderful! She is simply radiant and just so happy. And the resemblence of her mother, especially when she is standing next to her, it phenomenal!

Thanks so much for the photos.
 
Took me a while to find this thread.
It was a really lovley show and very emotional.
The royal family all looked a little bit down,. It must be hard for them wanting to celebrate this historical moment when they have this situation with Madeleine.

I hope she gets helps in the U.S now and that she can find a way to adjust to being princess. Finding sometihng that makes her feels useful.
Look @ Carl Philip. He is turning in to a lovely young man with a lot of passion.
 
It is always nice to see the women of the Swedish royal family wear their traditional dresses while they are celebrating the Swedish National Day -but why do the men just wear normal suits? Aren't there any popular traditional clothes for men or is it merely a personal preference of Queen Silvia and her eldest daughter to dress traditionally on this particular occasion (with regard to that, I don't know about the habits of former Swedish queens or princesses either)?
 
:previous: I was wondering that too. There are the ladies going traditional and there are the gentlemen going Saville Row! :lol:
 
Victoria looks so inmensely happy! I'm so glad for her :flowers:
 
I wonder what Princess Madeleine was doing that day. ;-) Hehe!

Next year Victoria will be allowed to wear the white hat like the one the Queen is wearing. It is reserved for married women.

The Queen and Victoria is wearing the Swedish National outfit and I don't believe there is a corresponding men's outfit.
 
Too bad the men don't wear the national custom like in Norway. Maybe that will change next year...
 
Everywhere you went today and everyone you spoke to all mentioned the emotional beautiful speach from the King.
It's lovely to see this kind of reaction!
 
On the national day of Sweden (6th of June) I was in Stockholm, in Djurgården, watching the royal cortege. There were Queen Silvia and King Carl XVI Gustav and after them arrived Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel, and Prince Carl Philip. Victoria and Silvia were wearing the yellow-blue national costumes of Sweden. The crown princess couple looked absolutely happy together and I noticed how beautiful Victoria is LIVE. Also Daniel looked good. This was the first time I saw them, and maybe this was their last public occurrence before their wedding. I was happy to be there and see them. I got picture only of the King and the Queen, because I just wanted to watch Victoria and Daniel. Victoria looked into my eyes, she was so near... :)

That's so cool that you were there!

While I understand wanting to enjoy the event......no pics of Victoria and Daniel??? You are cruel! :bang: (j/k) :D

I heard they have "Open Palace" that day. Did you visit the Palace too?

On Sunday the King had a national day speech at Skansen, Stockholm. I was there when the Swedish national day's cortege was passing by in Djurgården island. First arrived Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustav and after them Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westing, and prince Carl Philip. Here are some of my pictures:

And here you can watch the King's speech (in Swedish) in which he also mentions the wedding of "his oldest daughter": Kungens nationaldagstal - Nöjesklipp från tv4:s program - tv4play.se
 
Yes, actually it came to me as a surprise that Victoria and Daniel (and Carl Philip) were in the cortege. I did read in May, when I was planning my trip to Sweden, that only the king and the queen are participating the national day event in Skansen. Maybe that was old information. Anyway, caused by this my camera was not ready and I was just so surprised to see that Victoria and Daniel were following the king and the queen... :)
