For her annual photo, the five-year-old Princess wore her traditional blue, yellow and white folk dress, while sweeping her golden locks up into braided pigtails. Meanwhile, Estelle's little brother donned a striped peasant shirt and white pants for the photo session. The adorable siblings were photographed by Erika Gerdemark at their home in the gardens of Haga Palace. Estelle posed for one solo shot, showing off her festive wear and beamed beside one-year-old Oscar in another as they sat together in the grass.

Since 1983, Sweden has celebrated its National Day on June 6. The date coincides with two important events in the country’s history —  King Gustav Vasa's coronation in 1523 and the adoption of a new constitution in 1809. In celebration of the holiday, the royal family opens the doors of the palace to the public and local musicians and artists perform throughout the day at various events.
