Princess Estelle charms Sweden on mother Princess Victoria's name day

12 MARCH 2014 Sweden may have been celebrating Crown Princess Victoria's name day on Wednesday, but it was her two-year-old daughter Princess Estelle who charmed the kingdom.

The adorable young princess, who celebrated her second birthday last month, looked picture perfect standing in between her parents Victoria and Prince Daniel in the Royal Palace Square.

Estelle behaved impeccably throughout the name day ceremony, which took place in the sunshine in Stockholm. The royal darling was wrapped up in a grey coat and matching string hat, and stayed extra warm wearing thick tights, fur-lined shoes and woven mittens.

As her parents watched on proudly, Estelle looked to be enjoying the band who played a special march in honour of Victoria. Estelle was pictured beaming out at the musicians and dancing along on the spot, and at the end of their set, she clapped excitedly in approval.

In keeping with the traditional name day celebrations, Victoria was treated to a drum salute and also presented with a beautiful bouquet of violet flowers.

The first-in-line to the throne looked elegant in a monochrome coat with three-quarter length sleeves, which she matched with long white gloves. She kept her brunette locks scooped up into an elegant low bun, showing off her dangling star-shaped silver earrings.

 



After the concert, Victoria walked around and was greeted by those who had come to wish her a happy name day. In Sweden, each day is associated with a name and while only martyrs and saints' names were originally celebrated, more common names were later added to the calendar.
