Svensk Damtidning tells that Oscar is wearing a baby shirt with embroidered light blue flowers made by Victoria's grandmother Alice Sommerlath to Victoria as a newborn. Estelle wore at her first photo a small cardigan knitted by Alice Sommerlath.

He sure is a cutie, and the double of his sister as a newborn. Best wishes to Daniel, Victoria, estelle and Oscar!

I think Oscar is very cute and looks a lot like his sister. But I think this baby has more of Victoria, while Estelle looked a bit more like Daniel when she was born. I'm sure he will change a lot though, as does evry child.

Yay, first photos! What a cutie, he does look a lot like big sister.

To me they both look like their daddy in their first photos, but sweet little Estelle looks more and more like her mommy as time goes on. I'm sure he's going to be a little character just like big sister, too. SO looking forward to the coming years watching these two little darlings develop!

Little Oscar is adorable, I agree that he looks a lot like Estelle did at that age. It's also lovely that he's wearing a babygro from Alice Sommerlath's collection. Didn't Estelle also wear a cardigan made by Alice for her first official photo?

Saw this post on my tumblr today. As many have said the resemblance of Oscar and Estelle at the same age is remarkable. Can't wait to see this little guy grow up. Especially since Estelle is quite the character

Also I read somewhere can't member where that the family photos will be released in a few weeks

The new little prince is a gorgeous baby!

Estelle, Lenore, Nicholas were all beautiful newborns as well!

It is basically a service of thanksgiving consisting of songs, hymns, prayers and readings from the bible. A Te Deum can also be held when there is round birthdays for the monarch, round wedding anniversaries, before a marriage, after a senior family members death for example.

It is a very old Royal tradition in Sweden.

Thank you!

Love the photo of the new little Prince. He is so cute. Don't know which parent he looks like but he does look like his big sis as a newborn. I hope he has her spunk and character when he gets bigger.

Love that he is wearing a shirt embroidered by Alice Sommerlath, like Estelle wore a piece from her as well. Its a cute tie to each other and to Victoria's maternal grandmother.

I cant wait for family photos. I keep picturing the one with Estelle and baby Leonor when the cousins first met. Estelle was so sweet with Leo, and with Nico at the christening. I cant wait to see her with her little brother. I fear based on Estelle, and Nico's recently, we will likely be waiting into April for a family shoot.


Although maybe we will get lucky. As Sofia is due in April, maybe they will release early so not to take too much attention away from CP/Sofia's baby.

DAAAWWW!!! What a cute baby! Looks just like Estelle at that age

I think there will be a group shot of all the grandchildren and I would not be surprised that portrait is a gift to the king on his 70th birthday.

The former Marshal of the Court, Victoria's mentor and royal expert Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg (who has written a book "Royal Children: Four generations Bernadotte") about the photo:
Many believe that the prince is similar to sister Estelle, Tarras-Wahlberg agrees.
- Prince Oscar is really his sister's brother. Looking at the first photos of Princess Estelle, they are just alike as two peas in a pod. There are similarities in both the mouth and nose, well actually the whole face. Putting photos next to each other show it well. I looked back at old photos of other children in the royal family and I saw a baby photo of Count Carl Johan Bernadotte, who at that time was Prince, where there are similarities with Prince Oscar. It's the same distance between the eyes, nose and mouth.
Who is more like Prince Oscar, mom or dad?
- I do not have access to any baby photo of Prince Daniel so it is a bit cheating but if I remember right, there are probably a bit of both in Prince Oscar. Little Prince is a sweet, small child with a very nice face. The fine features are already there.
Can you see any similarity between the king and the little prince?
- I've looked at baby photos of King Carl Gustaf and think he had a different face shape if compared to Prince Oscar. Moreover, he had blonder colors. Prince Oscar has darker traits, just like mom Victoria.

Estelle and CG don't look anything alike, but CG's expression in that pic reminds me of the same faces Estelle would make when she was a baby! 😝 But she was and is still cute as a button!
