A translation of what is said in the video is below:

Princess Estelle: Mum said grandma. She knows all the tricks in the world, it feels like. (Mamma sa mormor. Hon kan alla tricks i världen känns det som.)
Prince Daniel: It feels like that, huh? (Det känns så, va?)
Crown Princess Victoria: This smells more. It is cinnamon! (Det lucktar mera. Det är kanel!)Estelle talking in the background: I have..(?). (Jag har..(?).)
Prince Oscar: Dad! (Pappa!)
Victoria: Dad, look! (Pappa titta!)
Daniel: Oh, how pretty. (Åh, vad fint.)
Victoria: Me too. Let’s do these too. (Jag också. Vi gör de här också.)
Estelle: Look, now it can be hung! (Titta, den kan hänga nu!)
Victoria: But look, don’t we have a hook we can hang it on? (Nämen titta, har vi ingen krok vi kan hänga upp den på?)
Daniel: La-la-la-la lalala.
Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle then sing “Midnatt råder.”
Estelle: And now it’s Oscar’s turn to sing. (Och nu får Oscar sjunga.)
Oscar starts singing “Tre Pepparkaksgubbar”
Victoria: Gingerbread-land… (Pepparkakeland…)
Oscar continues singing, and Victoria says, “And hats on slanting. Good! (Och hattarna på sned. Bra!)”

The video ends with the family saying together, “Merry Christmas. And a Happy New Year! (God Jul och Gott Nytt År!).”

“Midnatt råder” is a Swedish children’s Christmas song written in 1898. It is a popular song in schools and often sung with St Lucia celebrations.
