The Swedish Royal Family has marked National Day with sweet tributes on Instagram.

Princess Madeleine, who lives in Florida with her husband and three children, shared a photo on her Instagram account wishing everyone a happy National Day. The photo features her three children, Princess Leonore, Prince Nicolas and Princess Adrienne. Her message, written in Swedish, translates in English to: “Happy National Day to the finest Sweden!”

Due to the health crisis, Madeleine and her family have not been able to visit Sweden since 2019. Both she and her husband, Chris, have been vaccinated, and it is thought they will travel to Sweden at some point during the summer if allowed by Swedish health authorities.

On Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia’s Instagram account, a photo of Princess Sofia was shared, making a floral arrangement for the holiday. Their message translates to, “Happy National Day!”

Although they live in Sweden, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia did not take part in any public celebrations this year. The festivities were scaled down due to the ongoing global health emergency, and as such, only King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel participated.

Crown Princess Victoria and her family released their annual National Day images this morning along with a video of the family decorating their home at Haga Palace for the day.
