I was thinking before Daniel's birthday that he would get a scholarship in his name due to his birthday. Great to see I was right.

Svensk Damtidning reveals that Daniel will be celebrated with a huge celebration at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.
On Saturday 11 November, almost two months after he turned 50, the royal family and all his friends will gather to congratulate him. A celebration that the court has planned in silence. We will see Daniel's family and the large group of entrepreneurs who surround Daniel in his Fellowship. Perhaps some of his closest royal colleagues will also fly into Stockholm.

The court confirms to Expressen that Daniel will be celebrated, 57 days too late.
- Yes it is true. Due to that Prince Daniel turned 50 on the big Jubilee day on September 15, his celebration has been postponed and is on November 11, says Margareta Thorgren.
She doesn't want to go into what the celebration will look like or who is invited, given that it is private.
- It will be a private celebration at the Royal Palace. Prince Daniel is looking forward to this, says Thorgren.

Margareta Thorgren tells to Svensk Damtidning that Madeleine and her family are still in the US and will miss Daniel's birthday celebration on Saturday.
- They live in the USA and the reason is partly that they were home recently, partly that it is a long journey. They have congratulated the prince when they were in Sweden last time. Unfortunately, they are unable to attend this party.
Daniel wants to focus on a private one with his loved ones. Thorgen says that it is a private party that takes place at the Royal Palace and Daniel has wished to have a larger but private party.

Svensk Damtidning's reporter Helena Wiklund is on site outside the Royal Palace and tells that several cars have started to arrive to Daniel's birthday party.
According to Damtidning's sources, one of Sweden's most famous artists will perform at the party. The artist has hits with millions of plays on Spotify and is known worldwide. Out of consideration for Daniel and the guests, Svensk Damtidning chooses not to reveal the artist's name at the time of writing.

There are 200 guests at the party, from Daniel's childhood friends from Ockelbo to Victoria's girlfriends with their spouses and Daniel's all entrepreneur friends. Photos of some of them arriving, dress code black tie.

Svensk Damtidning writes that the royal family and the Westling family seem to have taken a different, secret way to the Palace as they were not seen at all.

There is no foreign royalty invited to Daniel's birthday? Not even the other Nordic crown princes couples?

Has the name of the performer been made public?
Svensk Damtidning writes that now they can reveal: the artist, who performed at Daniel's birthday party, was E-Type.

Shortly after four o'clock, the artist's gray BMW rolled into Outer Courtyard, escorted by a court official who gave clear instructions:
- On the other side of the guardhouse, you enter there.
Victoria had invited her old friend, the Euro disco king E-Type! A total surprise for Daniel who knew nothing beforehand.
- It was so cool - suddenly during dinner, E-Type stepped in and ran his show with dancers and everything. Everyone stood up and jumped! The atmosphere was absolutely incredible, the roof almost lifted!, one of the guests tells.
E-Type is tight-lipped and said to Svensk Damtidning: No, I have no comments. However, I wish you a wonderful day!
Victoria and E-Type (Martin Erikson) already got to know each other over 20 years ago, they were at a group which took a diving certificate together.

According to Svensk Damtidning's sources Victoria had more surprises in store than just inviting E-Type to perform and it turned out to be an emotional evening.
Victoria gave an outstanding speech, which was completely on a par with the much talked about speech that Daniel gave to Victoria at the wedding in 2010, and the guests could not do anything but cry when she showed her appreciation to her prince.
Damtidning writes that Daniel's 50th birthday celebration may have been pushed aside as the king celebrated 50 years on the throne, but he made it up with flying colors, thanks in large part to Victoria.
