Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria didn't let the ongoing coronavirus pandemic stop her from celebrating her 43rd birthday.
While the heir apparent to Sweden's throne typically marks the anniversary of her birth with public events, this year the party was a much more intimate affair: an outdoor concert with a small crowd of attendees.
Prince Carl Philip, and his wife Princess Sofia, joined Victoria, her husband Prince Daniel, their daughter Estelle, and a few other guests in the ruins of the Borgholms Castle for a series of musical performances in honor of the Crown Princess.
Americans may not recognize all the songs in the clip of the event below, but they'll certainly be familiar with Stevie Wonder's version of "Happy Birthday," which the royals seemed to enjoy very much.
And as she does every year on her birthday, the Crown Princess presented the Victoria Prize on her birthday, an award which celebrates athletic achievement. This year’s went to Swedish-American pole vaulter, Armand Duplantis.
The day was also marked with at 21-gun salute, which was fired from the island of Skeppsholmen, a greeting from Victoria on the royal family's Instagram account (in Swedish, of course), and a pair of new images of the royal family, which were released to the public.
Victoria's youngest child, Prince Oscar, did not attend the concert—perhaps at age 4, he was deemed too young for the presentation, but he can be seen in the pictures, which were taken in the garden of the Swdish royal family's summer palace Solliden, on Oland island.
