Princess Madeleine and her three children, Princesses Leonore and Adrienne and Prince Nicolas, have wished everyone a happy Swedish National Day from their home in Florida.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Madeleine and her family were not able to travel from the United States to Sweden to mark National Day.
On Facebook and Instagram, she said: “We wish everyone a nice National Day.”
Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia also released a video on their Instagram account from their home where they raised the Swedish flag with their two sons, Princes Alexander and Gabriel.
In Sweden, the celebrations were subdued because of the pandemic, and the Royal Family’s participation this year was limited.
Crown Princess Victoria provided digital tours of the Royal Palace on Facebook and Instagram of selected halls in the palace. The Royal Palace is usually opened for the summer by a member of the Royal Family, but the residence will not be open for tours for the foreseeable future. A tour video was published each hour beginning at 10 am and ending at 14:00.
King Carl XVI Gustaf also gave a speech from the Royal Palace on SVT1 at 20:00. The traditional performance of Arméns stora tapto by the Royal Army’s band in the Royal Palace’s Logården took place in the evening in the presence of the King, Queen, Speaker of Parliament and Prime Minister.
