New photos from Sweden's royals

We've got some brand new photos from Sweden's royals today but don't get too excited, there is no Prince Oscar. But we do have a new portrait of his big sister, Estelle, who at the age of four has got this whole royal photo thing down to a fine art as well as a new official image of her mum and dad and auntie Madeleine. It's a good way to start a Wednesday.

The new photo of Victoria and Daniel shows the Crown Princess in bright pink during her pregnancy. It's taken against the usual cool, marble, majestic background that features in so many Swedish official images.  There's a similar backdrop to the gorgeous new image of Estelle where the future queen smiles broadly for the camera, adding another special snap to her already impressive royal photo album.

Meanwhile, Princess Madeleine is photographed tiara and all in a new image which now also adorns her official page on the Swedish Royal Family website. Wearing the fabulous dove grey dress she first showed us at the Nobel Prize ceremony last December paired with the Aquamarine Kokoshnik tiara, she looks every inch the princess - just as she did when she wore this outfit for a special tea party for seriously ill children at the Royal Palace in Stockholm last month. It's becoming her most famous look.

And we already know these won't be the last official photos from Sweden's royals this year, this month or quite possibly this week. We're expecting more official images of Prince Oscar following his arrival on March 2nd and the first official photos of him with his parents and sister. Then we have Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia's new arrival to look forward to before we even get to King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th birthday in April and his and Queen Silvia's 40th wedding anniversary in June. More images, more smiles, more chapters in royal history.

And there is a special page about the birth of Prince Oscar here.
