Crown Princess Victoria releases photos of her newborn daughter Estelle

Since everyone enjoyed hearing about Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel’s recent familial addition, I thought we’d have a nice follow-up on it. Victoria gave birth to a baby girl last week, and by all accounts, Victoria and Daniel kept the baby princess’s delivery very low-key, simply checking into a private suite in a normal Stockholm hospital. Prince Daniel came out and gave the announcement, adorably referring to his daughter as a “very cute princess.” Days after the birth, the royal couple announced their daughter’s name: Princess Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, named after her grandmothers. Princess Estelle even has an official title too: the Duchess of Ostergotland. Anyway, Victoria and Daniel just released three photos of baby Estelle on their website – she’s so cute!! Here are the pics:

She’s adorable. I love that they released the photos on a website too, and that the photos just look like pics that Daniel took of his daughter and he just wanted to share with some friends. Because they’re on the website, we can use them – it’s not a formal photo shoot sold to some magazine. Yay! A wonderful “common touch”. And Princess Estelle is gorgeous too.

Oh, and I finally got a chance to watch Prince Daniel’s wedding toast to his wife. It’s really beautiful. He’s a very kind, sentimental man who fell in love with a princess. It’s pretty awesome.

    Awww she looks her father

    • merski says:

      WHAT?! 😀
      How do you people see those things?!
      To me she looks… like a baby… :]

      • Isa says:

        A baby version of her father! I agree with bite me, she does look like her father.
        She is soo cute!

      • Emily says:

        I’m with you, merski. I can tell a baby’s skin and eye colour (if their eyes are open) and whether or not they have hair. Parental resemblance? No way. Maybe you need to have kids of your own to get that?

    • NottaSpazz says:

      I say Daniel from the nose up, and Victoria from the nose down.

      The nose itself is usually a free-for-all, haha.

        Yes, I think you’re right.

        You know, I don’t really understand why or how some people aren’t able to identify parental or familial features on babies. They are not always there, and some babies really do just look like babies, but more often than not, in my experience, it’s easy to tell who the baby looks like, or pick out specific features that are of the family – sometimes even right after birth and before the swelling of their faces has gone down.

    YAY!!! BABIES!!! Nothing starts the day better than pics of a beautiful newborn 🙂 Except maybe Fassy….

    • Addison says:

      Babies or Fassie. Yes! I agree. Speaking of Michael, been too long since there has been news about him. TOO LONG!

    • Trek Girl says:

      My sentiments exactly!

      Babies and children are wonderful, and there is nothing better than seeing their brand-new adorable little faces in the morning, or when you’re feeling down; they brighten everything up.

    Sweet li2 princess, looks very much like her father

  6. birdie says:

    They seem so in love and the baby is gorgeous! So happy for them!!

  7. Agnes says:

    super cute baby! they seems happy and so in love – awesome. 🙂 (not the cold british royalty types, it seems like.)

  8. Tina says:

    It’t not common for the scandinavian royals to sell the photos. They usually take the photos themselves, and release them via their own webpages.

  9. Cathy says:

    Well, she’s a little cutie. My wish for her is a long and happy life.

  10. Samigirl says:

    What a pretty little baby!

  11. paola says:

    i cried through the whole speech.. but his humming was funny! 🙂

    • Renee says:

      Thank you! I did too and was hoping it wasn’t just me. The humming cracked me up, he strikes me as such a sweet geeky guy, who probably isn’t used to bringing in the laughs. That was so sweet, she must have felt like the luckiest gal on the planet.

    Dear Beyonce and J,

    This is how you successfully get pregnant and deliver a child while being “somebody special”. No hoopla, no 6 billion dollar rented hospital floor, no custom made weaves and pillows. Please take notice

    Thank you,

    The World

    Touching toast!

    Her chin is just like her mom’s!

  15. QQ says:

    Her chinny chin chin is just like her mom’s!

  16. Momo says:

    Wow. Royalty I don’t feel like making fun of…
    Well except the old man and the strip club rumors.

  17. Minty says:

    What a lovely little newborn!

    I have to say, sometimes her parents look like they could be brother and sister (see first photo).

  18. the original bellaluna says:

    What an adorable little princess! 😀

  19. Kate #2 says:

    I have to say, they looked incredibly happy and in love at their wedding. It’s a shame they made him over so much though. I mean, I get why, but I saw a photo from when the press first heard they were dating: and I’m sorry, but the makeover has done him so favours. He has a nice bone structure without those horrible glasses and the extreme hairgel thing going on.

    Nice to see people so genuinely happy to be together, though, especially as she’s had such well-reported problems when younger.

    royal princess victoria is so refreshing. seems like she made a good choice when deciding on a husband.

    british royalty should take a few notes.

    cute baby!

  21. Anon73 says:

  22. Tiffany says:

    Weeeeeee… pictures. Adorable. Cannot wait to see those eyes. I sending good vibes to the family.

  23. alibeebee says:

    i love this couple..every other monarchy should take notes. victoria is so classy and lovely

  24. molly says:

    Cute!!! And I love her name…Estelle…the perfect blend of trendy, classic, and regal. Apparently they plan on calling her Stella.
    I usually think people are idiots when they comment on a baby looking like its parents, but I actually see it this time. Shes a cutie just like her parents!

  25. sassy says:

    i wanna sniff her little head!

  26. I have read some excellent stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much attempt you put to make this kind of wonderful informative website.
