In connection with the celebration of the National Day of Sweden -  «Svenska Flaggans Dag» (The Swedish Flag Day) - the Swedish Royal Court released a rather lovely photo of Princess Estelle (b. 23 February 2012), the daughter of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. The Swedish Royal Family took part in the celebrations at Skansen and held a reception at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

The Swedish National Day is celebrated in memory of Gustav Vasa, who was elected King of Sweden on 6 June 1523. 6 June is also the day when Sweden promulgated a new Constitution (Instrument of Government) in 1809.

In two days Princess Madeleine, the youngest child and daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will marry Chris O'Neill in the Palace Church in Stockholm. For more information see the Royal Court's own wedding website.
