Crown Princess Victoria’s birthday celebrations in Solliden

On Sunday 14 July, more than 2,000 people gathered in front of Solliden Palace on Öland to congratulate Crown Princess Victoria on her 42nd birthday. The King and Queen, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar also attended the celebrations.

The Crown Princess was congratulated outside Solliden Palace with singing and four cheers, which is traditionally led by The King.

As well as being a national flag day, the heir to the Swedish throne’s birthday is also an official day on which salutes are fired. At 13:00, the Swedish Armed Forces therefore fired 21-gun salutes from the salute stations at Skeppsholmen in Stockholm, Kungshall in Karlskrona, Skansen Lejonet in Gothenburg and Kusthöjden in Härnösand, and from a mobile saluting battery at Kvarnängen in Boden.


In the evening, the Royal Family travelled by horse-drawn cortège from Solliden Palace to the celebrations at Borgholm Sports Arena, where Benjamin Ingrosso, Arja Saijonmaa, Rickard Söderberg, Lina Hedlund, Kaliffa and Isaac & The Soul Company performed.

During the evening, The Crown Princess presented the Victoria Prize to biathlete Hanna Öberg.

Hanna Öberg received the 2019 Victoria Prize in recognition of her performance in the 15 km race. Following perfect shooting and stable skiing, Hanna took first place on the podium and a World Championship gold medal, much to the delight of the home crowd of supporters. She also helped win silver in the ladies’ relay and bronze in the single mixed relay.
