Queen Silvia of Sweden: reunited with her grandchildren at the Christmas tree

After the festive Christmas clip of Crown Prince couple Victoria (46) and Daniel (50), Queen Silvia (79) is now also creating a Christmas atmosphere on Instagram. She decorated a Christmas tree with her eight grandchildren. A video shows the colorful hustle and bustle in the royal palace.

“Many thanks to the forestry students at SLU in Umeå for delivering Christmas trees to the royal castle this year,” writes the palace. SLU is the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Umeå is a town in the eastern Swedish province of Västerbotten County.

The clip clearly shows how familiar the children between the ages of two and eleven are with their grandmother - in the Christmas red checkered blazer.

Documentary filmmaker and royal family expert Julia Melchior confirmed this indirectly in an interview with spot on news on the occasion of her TV portrait "Silvia. Sweden's German Queen" (in the ZDF media library): "When she talks about her grandchildren, you don't even see them anymore Sitting in front of you is a queen, but a proud grandmother who talks about her grandchildren with joy and warmth." There is also a quote from Queen Silvia: "Grandchildren are the dessert in life that you can simply enjoy."

Estelle (11) and Oscar (7) come from the crown prince couple. Alexander (7), Gabriel (6) and Julian (2) are the sons of Prince Carl Philip (44) and Princess Sofia (39). The parents of Leonore (9), Nicolas (8) and Adrienne (5) are Princess Madeleine (41) and Christopher O'Neill (49).

And the eight children also seem to have a good relationship with each other. As you can see in the video, the larger ones are happy to help the smaller ones carry and place the traditional tree decorations. This is probably a good omen for the family celebration that is being celebrated in Stockholm on the weekend before Christmas: Queen Silvia will be 80 years old on December 23rd.
