It’s Sweden’s biggest day of the year – and its littlest royal came out to celebrate!
To honor Sweden’s National Day on Monday, which is the country’s birthday, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia (dressed in a traditional yellow-and-blue frock) brought their nearly 7-week-old son, Prince Alexander, for his first public outing.
The new family of three stood together outside the doors of Stockholm’s Royal Palace to welcome visitors inside, another June 6 tradition.

Also in honor of the special holiday, the Swedish royal family released four new photographs showing the heirs to the throne at play. All were taken by palace photographer Kate Gabor.
In the third, also shot in the gardens of the Haga Palace, where the family live with the children’s father Prince Daniel, 42, the adorable princess is shown frolicking with some sheep. (Sweden’s princesses love their green meadows!)
In the set’s final photo, Prince Oscar, who was christened on May 27, is held by his mother.
Happy National Day, Swedes!
