If you find yourself in Sweden: Princess Estelle

Welcome Princess Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary.  Did you know that Sweden is a Monarchy? Princess Estelle is Sweden's first royal baby in 30 years. Her parents are Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. Princess Victoria is the future Queen of Sweden. The royal birth was celebrated, Thursday, with a 42-gun salute. We had been sight-seeing with my nephews in that area and missed seeing this by a hair! To see photos of this salute, click here.

  1. I love the Swedish royals! Princess Victoria seems like she would be so much fun!

    1. Thank you for your comment! I agree. Victoria feels truly genuine in her role and commitment -- you feel that she is one who will be Queen one day.

      We made the pilgrimage to the castle with the kids to watch Victoria and Daniel wave to the crowd on their wedding day. Everything was perfect.

      There are always philosophical discussions for and against the royalty, but on that particular day it felt that though you were invited to the wedding ... love was really in the air and that feeling surrounds them. They are popular.


Thank you!
