Princess Birgitta told to Svensk Damtidning that the King and his four sisters Margaretha, Birgitta, Désirée and Christina met each others during the summer for the first time in five years.
The meeting took place during the royal family's private vacation.
- Yes, we actually had a reunion this summer, says Princess Birgitta when Svensk Damtidning reached her in Mallorca.
But this was also a royal family gathering that was very private.
- So much more than that, I can't actually say, says Princess Birgitta, but the joy is clearly heard in her voice.

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel were seen shopping at ICA in Bullermyren on Monday.
 
Interesting about the siblings meeting up especially as I'd read that two of them weren't up to attending the Jubilee events. Nice they got to meet up.
 
Victoria, Daniel and children have spent time at their new summer house on Värmdö.

Artist Susie Päivärinta lives on Värmdö and told at her interview with Hänt Magazine, that her son is currently working at the Fågelbro krog Restaurant at the Fågelbro Golf and Country Club and last weekend or the weekend before last Daniel and the whole family came. Daniel is a fan of Susie's boyfriend Stefan Gustavsson from when he played hockey. They had a little fun talking and Susie's son Leon is very good at golf and such, so he showed the family around the area a bit. It was great fun.
Susie says that Victoria is so cute too. Susie and her band played last year at a big party where she was, when Mikael Storåkers had a birthday. Michael is a loyal fan and Victoria was so sweet because she was so focused when they were doing the dance to Okay okay. Susie and band do a dance with the audience and Victoria was so amazing because she started dance right away. Susie thinks Victoria and family probably have a great time there, they live maybe 10 minutes from Susie, on a great seaside plot, it's really great where they live.
So they seem to have moved in now?
- Yes, I think so, because at least they were there, eating and hanging out with the whole family. So they probably did.
Susie is only positive that the crown princess family has chosen to settle on Värmdö.
- I have always liked the two of them, I think they are so beautiful. They feel so real and genuine. Daniel is very interested in sports, so it will probably be a great place for them because there is a lot of golf, tennis, padel, people are out and about a lot. The whole Fågelbro stables too, there are a lot of horses. It is probably a good place for them, Susie says.

Margareta Thorgren told to Svensk Damtidning that the King's sisters met their brother in the end of July in Solliden. Thorgren said that it was so fine that the King and his sisters could spend some days together and that the King and Queen were very happy of the visit.

Madeleine and children wish Happy Midsummer!
She just posted to her Instagram:
 
Svensk Damtidning claims to know that that the whole royal family, apart from Chris O'Neill, were gathered together at Victoria and Daniel's new house in the Stockholm archipelago. The whole thing also became a kind of housewarming party.
Are there no pictures of this new house?

There are no photos of Victoria and Daniel's new summer house. The entire property is considered a protected object. The Information Department of the Royal Court has said to the media that they don't answer any questions about the crown princess couple's house because it is private.
Photo of the road to the property during the building:

Article about the Crown Princess Family's boat, Nimbus 365 Coupé, which they had had for four years, it has been used extensively on excursions along the Swedish coast over the years.
This year there are rumors that a long trip all the way to Kyrkesund on Tjörn is planned, so if you meet an all-white Nimbus 365 this summer, perhaps even carrying a three-tongued flag, then you know who is probably on board.
Don't forget to say hello.

The Crown Princess family visited Tjörn in August 2019.
 
According to Margareta Thorgren, the summer holiday is important so that the royals can recharge their batteries for the autumn challenges.
- Just like for all people and families, it is a time for recovery, take it easy. In the case of the royal family, the whole family comes down to Öland in connection with the Crown Princess's birthday.
According to Thorgren, it is up to the royal family to decide whether they want to travel abroad or make other excursions during their holiday.

The first Solliden Sessions concert is on July 11, there are 10 concerts total in the series.
And there are a lot of concerts at the Borgholm Castle ruins and in Kalmar, so it will be interesting to see, how many concerts will get royals in the audience.

Margareta Thorgren said to Svensk Damtidning that any group photos of the royal family during the summer holiday are not planned.
- At present, it is not planned. We took photos of the whole family in connection with the Jubilee last year. That's how it's planned right now, everything can change, but there will not be a planned photoshoot.
 
Carl Philip and Sofia attended the Aurora -Scandinavia Concurs in Båstad -event. Gunilla von Platen posted to her Instagram:

For three days, The Aurora will showcase some of the world's rarest cars, from iconic classic cars to modern hypercars, all in one of Sweden's most beautiful environments, the botanical garden at Norrviken, Båstad. The Aurora goes of the stack with three fast-paced days consisting of cars, culture and festivities and cementing Scandinavia's place in the international collector car arena.
The first edition of The Aurora takes place on 5–7 July 2024 at Norrvikens garden in Båstad. The Aurora will be an annual recurring event.
 
Margareta Thorgren confirmed today in an SMS to Svensk Damtidning, that the whole royal family is gathered on Öland, ready for the big celebration of Crown Princess Victoria.
- Yes, they are in place, she writes.
 
Hopefully Margareta Thorgren will get to have a holiday herself and gets a break from all these ever exhausting holiday questions!
Her life would be much easier if Svensk Damtidning stopped bothering her with their bullshit questions about how the Royal family spends their holidays and where Princess Madeleine is and why she's there.
 
Members of the Royal Family arrived to this summer's first Solliden Sessions Concert, singer, songwriter and musician Orup is on stage. The concert was sold out.
We see the King and Queen, Victoria, Daniel and Carl Philip. Beside Carl Philip is Leopold Sommerlath, Patrick Sommerlath's son and Victoria's godson. According to Svensk Damtidning Sofia, Madeleine and Chris aren't at the concert.

Stephan Rimér, the organizer of the Victoria Days, told to Svensk Damtidning that Daniel will play at Victoriagolfen on Ekerum Golf course on Saturday with him, Magnus Lagerlöf (ceo of Ekerum Resort Öland) and Isabelle Haak (the Laureate of the Victoria Prize this year). Rimér told that Isabelle has trained hard and according to her own statement, she has an incredible swing speed.

Orup posted a photo before the concert and videos and photos from the concert:

Daniel, Carl Philip, Sofia and many of the royal children were today on a a boat trip in the sun. We can see Oscar in Daniel's arms.

The weather gods are not on tomorrow's Victoriagolfen's side. Current forecast tells that the rain is expected to pour down over the golf course just in time for Daniel to go out and swing.
Stephan Rimér tells: It's unclear whether we will be able to carry out the golf. We follow the weather forecast and plan to carry out the competition. We don't really know at the moment. We usually have lunch on the terrace outdoors, but it has now been moved indoors. We have also encouraged people to bring umbrellas and rain gear. Beyond that, we haven't taken any action yet.
A little rain is no danger, but there is a risk of a real storm. Then Victoriagolfen will be forced to cancel. If it's thundering it's not okay to play, it is downright dangerous.

I mean yes she deserves a break but if she didn't feel the need to comment on every story all of the time she would have an easier time.
 
I don't believe the life of a working royal leaves much room for rest. She could remain quiet but as Queen Elizabeth one said, "I need to be seen to be believed"

Today, on Saturday, Daniel plays at Victoriagolfen, together with
Stephan Rimér, ceo of Leroy Media and the organizer of Victoriadagarna (the Victoria Days)
Magnus Lagerlöf, ceo of Ekerum Resort Öland
Isabelle Haak, the Laureate of the Victoria Prize 2024

It didn't rain on the start but there is a still a big risk for heavy rain on Öland today.

About Victoriagolfen - wow, Isabelle Haak is tall, around 195 cm.
Isabelle Haak is one of the world's best volleyball players, having won the Italian league and the Champions League last season, but she said she was a little nervous before today's golf, as a hobby golfer. Daniel said that she didn't need to be worried, this is a fun form of the game. It became clear early on that Isabelle had nothing to worry about, she hit the best drive on the first hole.
In 2020 Daniel played with polevault-superstar Armand "Mondo" Duplantis. Playing golf with royalty can throw any big star off balance. Reportedly, Mondo noticed a woman following them during the game, and eventually approached and offered to sign an autograph and take a photo with her. However, the woman was not a particularly devoted fan – but Daniel's bodyguard. A charming mistake that the royal family could laugh about afterwards.
- I missed it when it happened, but I cracked up when I heard it, Daniel says.

Svensk Damtidning tells that in the middle of the course, what everyone had feared happened: The storm broke loose and now the downpour is a fact. But golfers are a tough family, Daniel refuses to give up – despite the excruciatingly heavy rain. Svensk Damtidning's editor-in-chief Johan T Lindwall is also golfing there and said that the game is still going on. All the participating teams raise money to the Crown Princess Victoria's Fund.

The risk of bad weather didn't prevent Daniel from participating in Victoriagolfen. He was in excellent spirits despite the weather, joking happily with Isabelle Haak and his co-stars. It wasn't his first round for this year, and he says that he has also played together with his children a little, it has gone well.
When asked if Oscar and Estelle think golf is fun, he replies that it is not their favorite sport, it's football and basketball.
Daniel will live next door to Fågelbro Golf & Country Club when the crown princess family are at their new summer paradise on Värmdö. However, the choice between Ekerum and Fågelbro is not obvious, he says, it depends on the form of the day.

From Orup's concert
"We were very starstruck not only to see Orup live, but also because parts of the royal family were there and sitting barely 5 meters from us"

Yesterday evening there was Ellen Krauss' concert at Solliden Sessions. The concert was sold out. It was raining and it seems that the royal family didn't attend.
