Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is celebrating her birthday with a horse-drawn carriage ride straight out of a fairy tale.

The eldest daughter and heir of King Carl XVI Gustaf turned 45 on Wednesday. To mark the special occasion, Princess Victoria stepped out at the Swedish royal family's summer residence of Solliden Palace with husband Prince Daniel and their two children: Princess Estelle, 10, and Prince Oscar, 6.

After hearing a children's choir perform, the family loaded into a carriage to travel in a horse procession through Borgholm.
