Sweden’s royals lend helping hand in Christmas greeting

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden’s family has released their annual festive video, just a week before Christmas Eve.

Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar feature in a video from the Royal Palace’s Bernadotte floor.

This year, the family is helping the Royal Palace’s Palace Master Claes Carlsson in the Breakfast Room to prepare for the holidays.

The personalities of the royal children really show in this year’s video; both appear to be as friendly and good-spirited as their parents.

As they helped create decorations, Prince Oscar is heard saying: “Oh look, look! It turned out great!”

Estelle also shows off a homemade wreath before the family gathers to tell viewers, “We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”

Since the birth of Estelle, the family has released a video each year around Christmas to wish the Swedish people well. In previous years, they’ve been seen sledging, visiting a police station, at the Royal Opera and at the Stockholm City Mission.

The Royal Palace is open to visitors every day on the weekends except Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
