Princess Estelle of Sweden looked adorable in a new portrait released by the Royal Palace of Sweden recently. The four-year-old royal is the star of a new stamp that is available in the country from Thursday. It shows Estelle front and center with the heir apparent, her mom, Crown Princess Victoria and her grandfather King Carl XVI Gustaf.
The third-in-line to the Swedish throne, Estelle, has now become a big sister to her baby brother Prince Oscar who was born on March 2. The new photo gives a fresh look at the young princess, who is currently settling into life at her parents’ home in Haga Palace as a family-of-four. The stamp featuring the little girl was released to celebrate her last birthday as the only child of her parents.
Earlier, Estelle had a simple haircut and her blonde locks were always kept tied into a ponytail. However, in the new portrait, she sports the season’s coolest hair trend — a cute braided style. The little princess’s short blonde tresses are kept in a side part and styled into a braided ‘do’ on one side.
The hyperactive girl wears a pink Marie Chantal dress and a winning smile in the picture. Estelle has earlier been spotted several times wearing the same children’s wear designer. In the picture, she appears to wear a jacquard star dress by the Crown Princess of Greece.
According to the website, the dress made from jacquard star fabric is suitable for formal summer occasions. It features a tulip shape style, a bow detail and capped sleeves. The dress is for three to 12 year olds.
The photograph for the new stamp has been clicked at the Royal Palace in Stockholm by court photographer Anna-Lena Ahlström. The new stamp has been designed by Daniel Bjugard. It is one of three stamps to commemorate Carl Gustaf’s 70th birthday on April 30, along with his and Queen Silvia’s ruby wedding anniversary later this summer.
The 38-year-old Victoria looks stunning in a white peplum style dress in the picture. The top features high neck, three-quarter length sleeves and a bow detailing. The mother-of-two accessorizes with pearl drop earrings, wears brown lipstick and black eyeliner. Her brunette tresses are swept to one side and styled into a low chignon.
The Swedish monarch looks handsome in blue suit and trousers paired with a crisp white shirt, striped tie and a white pocket square. There are two other stamps featuring the king and another of his queen.
