Here's Oscar. The birthday boy of Sweden has been caught in a special snap for his landmark event by his mum. The image of Oscar Carl Olof at one taken by Crown Princess Victoria was released today as her little boy celebrates his first birthday.

We thought, for most of the day, that we were only going to get one photo but clearly, Oscar does things his way and mum and dad had a subtle message to get out too. In the late afternoon of their son's first birthday, Victoria and Daniel released two more snaps of their little boy as he celebrated his big day. Oscar with cake, a study in two parts, appeared on the official Instagram account after the third in line to the throne of Sweden had set about his birthday sweet with all the style of a one year old. The new images also let us know that Oscar, along with mum, dad and big sister, Estelle, is back at home after a holiday which saw Victoria and Daniel miss the Canadian State Visit to enjoy a holiday with their children before school takes over. Business as usual for the new family of Haga.

Oscar was born on March 2nd 2016 at the Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm and christened on May 27th last year. He was made Duke of Skane by his proud grandfather, King Carl XVI Gustaf, the day after his birth and is third in line to the throne of Sweden.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
