Princess Leonore of Sweden at the Pumpkin Patch

Princess Leonore

I love that Princess Madeleine shares snippets of her family’s life on Facebook. Not too much, but just enough. I think it’s such a great way of meeting the people/media halfway. I think Kate and William could learn a lot from royals that embrace this way of compromising.

Anyway, this particular post Princess Madeleine shared of Princess Leonore at the pumpkin patch was too cute not to share. Look at her cute bow! And those leopard shoes!



Site Updates and New Photos of Prince Carl Philip and Sofia of Sweden

Scandi Mags

Firstly, I must say I’m sorry for the lack of posts recently. It’s been for a good reason, promise: I have moved to Hamburg! I was excited to have been offered a job here back in beautiful Germany last month and couldn’t pass it up. Germany is, of course, a second home to me.

And, I’d be lying if I said the idea of getting to read royal mags about Scandinavian Royals on the reg did sweeten the deal a whole lot. 😉 I already have this week’s prized collection of scoop and cannot wait to share my findings.

So, let’s get down to it, shall we?

The Swedish Royal Court released yet another batch of photos of the recently betrothed Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist. I really like her hair and dress this round. She looks very regal. And of course, Prince Carl Philip looks dashing, as per usual.

Princess Estelle learned some sign language while attending Sport Day at Haga Park on September 7 when she stopped by the NS Hephata tent.  NS Hephata is a sport club for the deaf and hard of hearing.   

Crown Princess Victoria explained to Princess Estelle that sign language is a language for the deaf and hard of hearing. Prince Daniel also tried to spell his name, but had some difficulty. Princess Estelle was given a packet with signs so she could continue practicing at home.  

Princess Estelle is also learning English from her Australian nanny. (The Royal Watcher)

Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle’s Matching Dresses

Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle: Fashion Twins

Before Kate started doing it with Prince George, Crown Princess was, and has been, dressing her sweet daughter Estelle that match the outfits she herself once wore as a wee babe.

Without sounding too much like my mom… I must say, this is one royal trend I can get behind. It also helps that the dresses Victoria once wore were absolutely precious.

I’m not completely sure, but I think Victoria has replicates of her dresses made, I don’t think they are the original. But I could be wrong…

Nonetheless, the two share an uncanny resemblance, and have similar sassy personalities!
