Happy Birthday His Majesty! ;-) King Carl Gustaf of Sweden celebrated his 66th birthday today! As every year he showed up at the outer courtyard of Royal Palace in Stockholm, accompanied by Prince Carl Philip to watch the festivities and accept flowers from those who came to celebrate him. Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel followed the show from "balcony" of the palace. Shortly before the end of the show after 1 pm came what many were hoping for, Victoria and Daniel brought their 2 month old daughter Princess Estelle to the "balcony". Her first public appearance was only 90 seconds long, but she managed to stole the spotlight from her grandfather, he seemed perfectly fine with it though.
