Happy Birthday Your Majesty!
Today the King celebrates his 73rd Birthday with his family at the Royal Palace Courtyard in Stockholm.
The King and Queen started the day by inaugurating a new pavilion in the English Gardens of Drottningholm Park. This pavilion was built on the King’s initiative to offer protection from weather in addition to offering park-goers a place to stop and rest. This particular area of the park is a favorite for pet owners as dogs are allowed to go free, without a leash. The King and Queen were accompanied by their faithful Bavarian Mountain Hound- Brandie.
At noon, the King and Prince Carl Philip were present in the courtyard of the Royal Palace to receive the high guard. The king then, along with Prince Carl Philip, entered the High Guard flight for the chief commander's reception.
During this, the Queen, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle, Prince Oscar, and Princess Sofia watched from the windows of the palace.
Princess Estelle was seen enjoying the music provided by the Army and Navy Band provided for the audience while her grandfather collected flowers from the children who had come to wish him congratulations on his birthday.
Following collecting flowers from the children, the King made his way back inside the palace to do one final wave from the window before continuing his birthday celebrations in private.
During this, Prince Oscar could be seen offering a big kiss to his mother.
Crown Princess Victoria wore a dress from ByTiMo with her Acne Studios Avalon Coat over it. She accessorized with Earrings and Pendants from Dulong, new hair bow from Corinne and her Carl Edmond watch.
Princess Sofia wore a new pink coat, pearl earrings, and dress from LK Bennett.
Princess Estelle wore a dress and coat from Bonpoint.
