The Swedish royal family has released an official portrait of Princess Estelle on the occasion of her eighth birthday.
The second in line for the throne is the daughter of Crown Princess Victoria, 42, and the image of her mother.
The beautiful photo, taken at Haga Palace in Stockholm, was shared on the Kungahuset Instagram page earlier today, along with a good image of the future queen with her brother Prince Oscar, who will turn four in March.
Princess Estelle wore a beautiful cream and blue flower dress with a high neck, while the cheeky Oscar looked smart in a gray sweater over a white shirt and cream-colored chinos.

The caption read: “Today Princess Estelle will be eight!” And the mail had almost 45,000 likes in just three hours.
It is not known when the photo, taken by Linda Broström, was taken.
Princess Estelle recently made headlines when she broke her leg in the beginning of January in a ski accident.

She broke her limbs in an accident while her family celebrated the New Year and her mother missed the funeral of her friend Ari Behn, the ex-husband of Princess Martha Louise of Norway, to stay with Estelle while she recovered.
In the new portrait, Princess Estelle does not seem to wear a cast, although only one of her legs is visible because of the way she sits.
Earlier this month, proud mother Crown Princess Victoria shared two striking new family portraits, after she and husband Prince Daniel announced the creation of a royal foundation in the name of their daughter to “promote cultural activities” and celebrate art.
