The Prince was christened Oscar Carl Olof

People magazine writes:

One of Sweden’s newest little princes, H.R.H. Prince Oscar Carl Olof, was baptized with royal pomp and ceremony at a service held at Stockholm’s Royal Palace Chapel on Friday.

The only son of Crown Princess Victoria, 38, and her husband Prince Daniel, 42, Prince Oscar, who was born on March 2, is third in the line of succession to the Swedish throne, after both his mother and his elder sister Princess Estelle.

During the service, Prince Oscar was wrapped in the family heirloom christening gown previously worn by his uncle and grandfather: It dates back to Prince Oscar’s forebears in the early 20th century.

Following Bernadotte family tradition, Oscar’s name will be embroidered into the lining of the satin woven silk cape, alongside the names of previous wearers including the current King Carl XVI Gustaf and, most recently, nearly 1-year-old Prince Nicolas.

How do the Swedish Royals always look so incredibly stylish while also seeming super down to Earth? I have a feeling CP Victoria and Princess Madeleine would be wildly fun to have as friends…

Also, Princess Madeleine also posted this on her Facebook page last night and it absolutely melted my heart. I grew up with my cousins and will forever consider them to be some of my best friends, so this struck an especially close chord for me.princess-madeleine-435.jpg

  1. Those are wonderful pictures of a very happy family. Little Oscar looks so much like Estelle; they are really cute kids. I agree that the princesses would be a lot of fun to hang out with. They are almost always smiling or laughing, and living in the moment.
