Crown Princess Victoria was joined by her children Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar, in traditional dress, as they lead National Day celebrations in Stockholm today.

Dressed in a yellow and blue folk costume, an adorable Princess Estelle, 10, walked hand-in-hand with her father Prince Daniel in Stockholm as the royal family marked the start of the celebrations.

She was accompanied by her mother, Crown Princess Victoria, 44, who looked equally festive in the traditional ensemble, her father, Prince Daniel, and her brother, Prince Oscar, six, who both wore suave blue suits.

The Swedes celebrate their national day on June 6 in honor of two historic events: on June 6, 1523, Gustav Vasa was elected king, and on the same date in 1809, the country adopted a new constitution. It became a public holiday in 2005.

Mother and daughter were matched in the blues and yellows of the ‘Sverigedräkten’ folk costume, consisting of a white shirt or blouse, a blue skirt or dress and a yellow overskirt, in the colors of the Swedish flag.

But the 44-year-old wore a white headscarf with her outfit, which symbolizes that she is married, unlike her young daughter.

She kept her makeup minimal and completed her look with silver hoop earrings, smiling as she smiled and waved to the audience with her family.

Meanwhile, her husband and son also wore similar outfits, opting for blue suits and ties.

The young family held hands and smiled as they watched the special ceremony to open the palace to the public on Sweden's National Day.

Every year, the King and Queen take part in a ceremony at Skansen, Stockholm’s open-air museum, where the yellow and blue Swedish flag is hoisted on the mast, and children in traditional peasant dress present the royal couple with bouquets of summer flowers.

National Day also now recognizes new Swedish citizens, welcoming them with special ceremonies held across the country.

Other festivities that usually take place on Sweden’s National Day, also known as Svenska Flaggans Day (Swedish Flag Day), include a ceremony at Skansen, Stockholm’s open-air museum.

The Swedish parliament voted to make the day a public holiday in 2004 and it was finally implemented in 2005.

Crown Princess Victoria’s appearance for Sweden’s National Day with her family comes after she attended the Polar Music Prize ceremony late last month with her husband.

They were also joined by his father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, 76, and his wife Queen Silvia, 78, and Prince Carl Philip.

Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, looked chic in a black off-the-shoulder bardot jumpsuit for the occasion.

The royal family attended the award, which is often described as the Nobel Prize in Music.

It celebrates two winners, a contemporary and a classic, for significant achievements in the music industry.

This year, the American musician James Newell Osterberg Jr, alias Iggy Pop, 75, was honored alongside the Ensemble intercontemporain, a leading contemporary music ensemble based in Paris.

The 2022 winners were presented with their awards by His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden during the awards ceremony.
