40 years of Crown Princess Victoria. Grattis på födelsedagen, Vikkan. 

Looking at Hollywood and the stories that many grew up with, the image of a princess is hugely superficial. And I really think that the Crown Princess helps to tear that picture down.

(When asked who his personal role model is) My wife

- Prince Daniel, her husband

I feel like a step-brother sometimes. Of course I’ll help her and share my experiences with her if she needs my support. And I get a lot of great input from her as well

- Crown Prince Frederik, her second cousin and friend

As a mother, I think of course that Victoria is an amazing person, with great compassion, a good heart, intelligence. She will be a good Queen. She is a good mother and a good person.

- Queen Silvia, her mother

Our relation is, however, deeper than that between a monarch and his successor. I am your father. You are my beloved daughter. No one should believe anything else than that my highest wish has always been — and is — to see you happy.

- King Carl XVI Gustaf, her father

Victoria took a lot of responsibility for us (Madeleine and Carl Philip) and looked after us. She’s also very creative and that makes her such a wonderful sister. She invented fun games, we built the most beautiful tree houses. She always did everything for us.

- Princess Madeleine, her little sister

She spends time with everyone she meets. She is always engaged and well-informed. She has a warm charisma and is a very beautiful lady, who touches everyone she meets. She is truly a fine representative of our country.
