Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden has released two new official photos of her son Prince Oscar as a thank you to well-wishers. The young Princess Estelle dotes over her baby brother in an image shared on the Swedish Royal Palace's official Facebook page on Thursday morning.
The photo, taken at the family home Haga Castle by Prince Daniel, shows Estelle holding her little brother while sitting down on the floor. The four-year-old smiles sweetly down at Prince Oscar, who is fast asleep in his sister's arms.

Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel released the photo with a message thanking the public for all their support over the past few weeks, following the birth of Prince Oscar and Princess Estelle's fourth birthday celebrations.
"Many thanks for all greetings, good wishes and congratulations we received in connection with Princess Estelle's birthday and Prince Oscar's birth," the message read. "We appreciate all the concern and that so many share our joy."
A further image of Princess Victoria cuddling up to her newborn was shared on the Swedish Royal Palace's official website.

Prince Oscar can be seen sleeping peacefully in his mother's arms while she smiles for the camera, looking elegant in a blue floral top with her hair tied back into a bun. The image, which was taken by photographer Kate Gabor, was also believed to have been taken at Haga Castle in the last few days.
Crown Princess Victoria welcomed her second child on Wednesday 2 March, with her husband Prince Daniel by her side. He later proudly addressed the media to confirm the little prince was born weighing eight pounds and measuring 22 inches long. With a big smile, he said that both mother and baby were doing well, adding: "I have not had time to feel just yet how it feels to be a father of two. But it feels good so far!"
The couple released the first official photo of their son earlier this month, showing him fast asleep while covered with a cream blanket just five days after his birth at Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm.
