Crown Princess Family of Sweden releases annual Christmas video

Each year, the Crown Princess Family of Sweden releases a Christmas video. This year, the family (Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar) is seen on a visit to Katarina Church in Stockholm where they get a tour of the church’s nativity scene and learn more about it from the church’s preacher, Rev. Are Norrhava.

Pastor Norrhava told the family the story of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem, and they were able to light the star of Bethlehem and set the stage for the nativity.

The Royal Court released an English subtitled video, as well as the original Swedish subtitled video.

At the end of the video, the family says together, “God Jul och Gott Nytt År! (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!)”
