Watch: Princess Victoria and family wish us a Merry Christmas in sweet video

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden has enlisted the help of her husband Prince Daniel and their daughter Princess Estelle to share a festive greeting with royal followers. The Swedish royals released a one-minute video on their official Facebook page on Friday, showing the family baking together as they prepare for the festivities.


Filmed in The Bakehouse at Skansen museum and zoo in Stockholm, the video shows the trio having fun while baking traditional Swedish delicacies together. An excitable Princess Estelle has her hair tied into pigtails and wears a gingham apron as she helps her parents to roll the dough before it is placed into a traditional wood fire oven.

Within an hour of being shared on social media, the short video had already attracted thousands of views and comments from royal fans wishing the family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

2016 promises to be particularly special for the family as Victoria and Daniel prepare to welcome a baby brother or sister for their daughter Estelle. The 38-year-old is due to give birth in March, but previously joked that Estelle wasn't excited about having a sibling to play with, telling reporters: "What she really wants is a hamster!"

Three-year-old Estelle won't be short of playmates in the New Year as she also have another baby cousin in the form of Prince Carl-Philip and Princess Sofia's first child. The couple, who wed in a lavish ceremony in June, are set to welcome their baby in April.
