HRH Crown Princess Victoria's 37th Birthday
HRH Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden was born July 14, 1977. Today she turns 37. For Sweden it is a national flag day and canons will be fired from Skeppsholmen in Stockholm to celebrate the princess. But she is as usual spending it at the family's summer home Soliden Castle on the island of Öland in the Baltic. There people celebrate her infront of the castle by giving her flowers, cards and singing Happy Birthday. The king calls out four cheers for his daughter and trumpets are heard.
In the evening a consert is held not far from the castle. Famous artists entertain and prices are handed out to athletes who have done something extra during the year. Most of the royal family atend every year and the only time Victoria herself could not atend was when she was on her honeymoon. Everything is shown on national television.
