Crown Princess Victoria celebrates her birthday with a special concert


Happy birthday, Crown Princess Victoria!

The Swedish royal marked her 43rd birthday on July 14. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, she celebrated her special day with close family members, including husband Prince Daniel and their children, Prince Oscar, 4, and Princess Estelle, 8, with an intimate concert held at the ruins of Borgholm castle on the island of Öland.

The young family was joined Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia, as well by pole vaulter Armand Duplantis and his family, for the televised concert, which was recorded without an audience.

Armand, who is a double world record holder, received this year's Victoria Prize at the concert. Since 1979, a Swedish athlete has been praised in connection with the Crown Princess's birthday.

Kungahuset (The Royal Court of Sweden) reported that due to COVID-19 and restrictions, the traditional birthday celebrations were cancelled. However, the Armed Forces still fired a salute to the Crown Princess.

Victoria, Daniel, Estelle and Oscar also posed for a family portrait at Solliden Palace in Borgholm to mark the happy day. The palace is the summer residence of the Swedish royals.

Birthday girl Victoria looked beautiful in a summery white dress from By Malina. The flowing style was decorated with a delicate floral pattern and trimmed with lace. She accessorized with brown sandals and dangling earrings. The 43-year-old wore her brunette locks swept back into a sleek low bun.
