Swedish royal family shares sweet portraits of Prince Oscar and Princess Estelle in celebration of his 4th birthday

By Heather Cichowski

Happy Birthday, Prince Oscar! Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel marked their four-year-old's special day by sharing two adorable black-and-white portraits of him, including one with his elder sister, Princess Estelle.

The images, which were taken by Linda Broström, were shared on March 2 on the Kungahuset Instagram, which is the Swedish Royals' official account.

In the first shot, an excited Oscar looks to the side. He is wearing a sweater with his hair neatly slicked down. And he has a big grin on his face.

The second photograph is of Oscar and Estelle. The young prince and his eight-year-old sister are posed on the floor. They have their hands resting on their chins. Oscar adorably seems to be deep in thought while his sister is smiling wide.

The caption, translated from Swedish, reads: "Today, Prince Oscar turns 4!"

Royals fans wished Oscar a happy, fun-filled birthday in the comments and offered their "grattis" or congratulations.

Oscar's birthday on March 2 comes just a few weeks after Estelle turned eight on Feb. 23.

The Swedish royal family shared two photographs on Instagram for the occasion. The portraits were also taken by Linda, and one image is just of Estelle and the other features her and Oscar.

The difference? The photos for Estelle's birthday show the children in colour, while the pictures for Oscar's special day are in black and white.

All of the photographs are so cute and show just how much the young royals are growing up. We look forward to celebrating more of their milestones with them.
