Yes, it's a royal tea bag.
My best imaginary friend crown princess Victoria of Sweden and prince Daniel got their first child yesterday. Today the palace announced that the baby princess is called Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary. Good names. Too bad that the names of the royals are no longer translated into Finnish. For example Victoria's dad, king Carl Gustaf is Kaarle Kustaa in Finnish. Queen Elizabeth is called Elisabet and all the king Georges are called as Yrjö in Finnish. Kate Middleton's full name is Catherine Elizabeth, and I must say I'm truly sorry for the future queen of England not having her name translated into Finnish (the fact that my full name is Katri Elisa has nothing to do with this issue).
Let's see if the popularity of Estelle picks up - since 2010 six little girls have been given the name Estelle in Finland.
