The Swedish Royal Family have released a photo of them on holiday, to send ‘summer greetings’ to the public.
Taken at Solliden Palace on Öland earlier this month, on Victoria’s birthday, King Carl XVI Gustaf is joined by his wife, Queen Silvia, and their expanding family, all matching in blue and nude.
Future Queen, Crown Princess Victoria, balances Prince Oscar on her knee, as she perches on the arm of the bench. Husband Daniel stands beside her, while Princess Estelle sits on this bench next to her grandmother, Silvia. Her cousin Prince Nicolas is on the other side.
Princess Madeleine holds Princess Leonore, with Chris standing behind her, who is joined by Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia, who holds Prince Alexander, 1; Sofia is currently 7 months pregnant, expecting her and Carl Philip’s second child in September.
The King completes the photo at the rear, with Solliden Palace in the background.
It makes quite a change from last year’s photo, showing how all the children have grown.
We think this is a handsome photo; what are your thoughts? Comment below!
