After two years without official celebrations, due to the pandemic, this Saturday, the 12th, the Swedish royal family revived a tradition in honor of the Crown Princess, Princess Name Day.
Victoria from Sweden goes back to living an unforgettable day, surrounded by her loved ones and the Swedish people, who could not offer gifts to the heiress in person, due to the restrictions imposed because of the pandemic. The eldest daughter of kings Carlos Gustavo and sylvia arrived at the Royal Palace in Stockholm very smiling, accompanied by her husband, Prince Danieland the couple’s two children, Princess Estelle and the prince Oscarwho became the center of attention, captivating everyone with their friendliness and spontaneity.
Upon arrival, the princess’s family was received by the Armed Forces, before taking their place in the rostrum intended for them. The four members of the family dressed in a rigorous and coordinated manner, combining trousers, coats and hats in shades of gray – the Crown Princess and her daughter, second in line to the throne, opted for lighter grays and the prince and the son for a darker tone.
After the initial greeting, everyone attended a concert by the Army band, which usually dedicates the Victoria March to the Crown Princess. This ceremony aims to give the Armed Forces and the general public the opportunity to pay tribute to the princess now instead of on her birthday, in July, a date that is not usually celebrated in Stockholm, but on the island of Öland.
It should be noted that this is the first time that the crown princes are seen in public with their two children after rumors of a marriage crisis. After weeks of speculation, the princes themselves broke protocol and issued a joint statement denying the rumours.
“Claims of betrayal in a relationship and an impending divorce are being made public. In normal situations we do not comment on rumors and speculations. But in order to protect our family, we want to make it clear, once and for all, that the rumors that are now spreading are completely unfounded.“, the note read.
