Crown Princess Victoria and her family traditionally wear traditional costumes on Sweden’s National Day.
The Swedish royals traditionally celebrated the national holiday on June 6th. Crown Princess Victoria (44), her husband Prince Daniel (48) and their two children Princess Estelle (10) and Prince Oscar (6) opened the western gates of Stockholm Palace in the morning. The castle was open to the public on Monday with free entry. Mother and daughter dressed for the occasion in the traditional white, yellow and blue national dress, while Daniel and Oscar wore dark suits.
This is how the royal family celebrated in Sweden
King Carl XVI Gustaf (76) and his wife Queen Silvia (78) meanwhile visited Olofström, which celebrates its 50th anniversary as a municipality this year. Among other things, they took part in a celebration in Holje Park. Charles XVI Gustaf traditionally presented flags to local clubs and organizations. In his subsequent speech, he said, according to the palace: “Sweden is a country with a rich history – and a promising future. Let’s make the best of both by joining forces. And today, on Sweden’s National Day, let’s celebrate our country, our homeland in the world, celebrate!”
Prince Carl Philip (43) attended the changing of the guard in the courtyard of Stockholm Palace. In the evening, the royal family drives through Stockholm in a horse-drawn carriage to the open-air museum Skansen, where the king will award various clubs. Afterwards there will be a reception in the castle, to which representatives of the government and the Reichstag, among others, are invited.
