The apple hasn’t fallen far from the fashion tree in the Swedish royal family, with Princess Estelle looking a veritable ‘mini-me’ of her mother Crown Princess Victoria, 43, during a public appearance in Stockholm today.
The young royal, eight, donned a camel coat just like her mother’s as they joined King Carl Gustaf of Sweden, 74, to stroll over the new Golden Bridge in Slussbron, Stockholm.
After cutting through a yellow ribbon, the family – appearing to social distance – walked through an arch of fireworks as they stepped foot first on the new bridge, with a small army of Swedish schoolchildren waving flags behind them.
Three generations of the Swedish royal family gathered to open a new bridge in Slussbrun, Stockholm this morning, with Princess Estelle, eight, delighting crowds with her stylish attire which was very similar to that of her mother Crown Princess Victoria’s

Smiling for the crowds of well-wishers that had arrived to see three generations of the Swedish royal family open the new bridge, Princess Estelle wore a toasty looking black scarf and mittens to stay warm alongside her camel coat.
On the young royal’s feet, a sturdy pair of studded black Gallucci boots, which retail at around £245.
Meanwhile, Crown Princess Victoria’s version of the winter classic comes with a royal price tag. Her Manuela Icon wrap coat retails at £1,585.
She matched her coat with a camel roll neck and wide-legged trousers in the same shade.
