Those who attended the Te Deum were: King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, Sofia Hellqvist (Prince Carl Philip’s partner), Countess Marianne Bernadotte, Bertil Bernadotte (the son of Count Folke Bernadotte) and Patrick and Maline Sommerlath, Queen Silvia’s relatives. Approximately 200-300 invitations were sent to members, relatives and friends of the Royal Family.

Leonore’s Te Deum was smaller than her cousin Estelle’s, since Leonore is fifth in line to the Swedish Throne, whereas Estelle is the future Queen.

Madeleine and Chris were unable to attend the Te Deum as they are staying in New York with Leonore.

    Do they have a thnksgiving service for every baby born in Sweden?.
    “Big deal”; I hope the tax payers are not footing the bill for any of this celebration.
    No disrespect to the innocent new born.

  3. I think it is quite a lovely ceremony and wish everyone could be present: The English version is–We praise thee, O God. I am pleased that there are still these beautiful religious ceremonies and that the royals attend in such big numbers and with such frequency.

    @ Mavis

    Your remarks are completely uncalled for and totally malicious. Having a “Te Deum” for a new-born baby, be it royal or not, is organized and paid for by the family of that respective baby. Why would it be different in the case of Princess Madeleine’s baby?! To my knowledge, the Swedish Royal Family is known for using Their money wisely and parcimoniously, so your concern seems hypocritical to say the least.
