Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel have released two new photos of their gorgeous children, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar.
Princess Estelle will be celebrating her 5th birthday on Thursday, 23 February.
She was born on 23 February 2012 at Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm at 4.26 am (local time). The little princess was 51 cm (20.07 inches) and weighed in at 3.280 kg (about 7 pounds 3.5 ounces).
Princess Estelle of Sweden, Duchess of Östergötland, is second in line, in accordance with the 1979 Act of Succession, which came into effect on 1 January 1980, following her mother, Crown Princess Victoria.
Her little brother Prince Oscar celebrates his first birthday on Thursday, 2 March.
It only seems like yesterday when the news broke that Crown Princess Victoria had given birth to a son at Karolinska Hospital at 8:28 pm (local time), with Prince Daniel giving a press conference after the delivery.
Crown Princess Victoria’s 40th birthday is one of many historic milestones for 2017 in royal circles.
The Crown Princess celebrates her birthday on 14 July, known as Victoria Day in Sweden.
Last year, Carl XVI Gustaf led the traditional singing and four cheers as well-wishers called in at Solliden Palace to offer their congratulations and wish Crown Princess a very happy birthday.
Last month, King Carl Gustaf’s sister, Princess Birgitta, celebrated her 80th birthday on Thursday, 19 January with a celebration at Drottningholm Palace.
