On Monday 14 July, thousands of people gathered in front of Solliden Palace on Öland to congratulate The Crown Princess on her 37th birthday.

The Crown Princess listened as people wished her a happy birthday in the sunshine, followed by a round of cheers from the crowd, which is traditionally led by The King. The Queen, Prince Daniel and Princess Estelle also attended the celebrations.

At midday, a gun salute was fired from Skeppsholmen in Stockholm.

In the evening, The King and Queen, The Crown Princess Couple, Prince Carl Philip, Miss Sofia Hellqvist, Princess Madeleine and Mr Christopher O'Neill were driven from Solliden Palace to the celebrations at Borgholm Sports Arena in a horse-drawn cortège.
