“I think these pictures were much longed for. They speak for themselves, really,” said photographer Kate Gabor to daily Expressen.

The images, depicting the new parents and their baby were shot at Haga palace in Stockholm, home of the Crown Princess couple, when the baby princess was only a few weeks old.

“Estelle was only three weeks old when the pictures were taken,” confirmed Annika Sönnerberg, acting head of information at the Royal Court, to daily Aftonbladet.

One shows both Victoria and Daniel together with Estelle, another of Victoria on her own with her baby daughter and the third of the proud father and his baby girl.

Gabor was contacted by the court and asked if she would take their picture.

“I can’t really say anything about it but I was given this very exciting assignment and I am very proud and very happy, “she said to daily Expressen.

Since baby Estelle was born on February 23rd there hasn’t been many pictures of the new family together.

One picture was published of the couple on the way home to the hospital, one from a walk the new parents took with the baby outside Haga Palace, but nothing more.

The three images released by the Royal Court on Monday are the first official pictures of the new little family.

Wow it's nice...but it looks fake.

This kind of photo should be taken naturally not like being very well dressed up. wonder how many shots were repeatedly taken.

The most beautiful picture of Victoria ever!

Yes, what a lovely mother and daughter picture. I doubt it's fake. Pictures of my daughters and me are even nicer and they weren't taken by a professional.

How many more "first official" photos of this puppet show do we need to hear about? First this, first that...as if it's not already boring enough to hear anything about them.

Anyone can take a look at their local paper to see how many beautiful children are born or celebrating birthdays each week. Estelle is no more special. Just as human as the babies in the papers as far as I know.

Your Royal Highness Princess Victoria now got a healthy blush of spring in her cheeks. Good thing.

Nice photo.

Quick question. When the princess was born they made a big deal about 42 cannon shots. What is the significance of 42?

@secondgen

I think that it has to do with the official "21-gun salute", except in the case of a royal birth and other such special events they double it.

No, she is an unusually beautiful baby. Look at that mouth, that chin, those wonderful eyes, those brows. She is A-DOR-A-BUL.
