I think it's a safe bet that the christening for prince Oscar will be before the summer holidays, and that the next christening (Carl Philip and Sofias child) will be in the early autumn. I think the court will prefer to have them a few months apart.

Now when the Easter Holidays are finally over and the "normal" working weeks begin, maybe we will get the christening date soon. The King, Queen, Victoria and Daniel are attending at the regular meetings with the Office of the Marshal of the Court where they plan and coordinate the Royal Family's official programme. The decision of the date will be made at those meetings. According to the royal reporters those meetings are held normally every week.
I think that the christening will be in May or in the beginning of June, latest on 12th June.

It might also be that they have already decided the date and at the meeting they decide when it is made public.

Queen Silvia talked about Oscar to Expressen's Johan T Lindwall at the Royal Palace when she bought the first Mayflower pin.
How has the first time as a new grandmother to Oscar been?
- Overwhelming! Of course. It's been amazing. One is struck by how small they are. You forget it.
The queen points out that she and the rest of the family feel great gratitude that everything has gone well during pregnancy and childbirth.
- We are of course happy that he is doing well. And that even the crown princess is doing well.
What about Oscar?
- He is very cute! Queen says quickly.
- It's a sweet little boy. A fine little boy!
His name - Oscar Carl Olof - was chosen by Victoria and Daniel. The Queen recognizes that she and King are especially proud of their choice, Oscar and Carl are classic names of the family Bernadotte's side.
- We are pleased about the name! We grandparents have not gotten involved in it. I promise.
When Princess Estelle was born the Queen said she recalled a small porcelain doll. Is it even so this time? Who is Oscar really like?
The Queen laughs:
- That's the funny thing, sometimes he is very like his father, and sometimes he is very much like his mother. It varies.
I was struck by that Oscar is a lot like big sister Estelle. Does the queen agree?
- That said, it varies. Sometimes yes. Sometimes not. We'll see. We have to have some patience.

Johan T Lindwall was in Germany with Daniel at the inauguration of the children's book exhibition.
In a frank interview Daniel talked about the first times as a father of two.

Daniel laughs when he is asked what he and Victoria have made during their about a month long parental leave at Haga Palace.
- It's a little funny. As soon as we are not in official contexts all believe that we have free time, but of course, we have been home since Oscar was born, said Daniel with a small note that they work even if it is not listed in the court's official calendar.
How has this time been?
- It has been fantastic! We are of course delighted to have little Oscar. It has been a lovely time and Estelle is happy, just as we all others. We are fortunate to have two children.
What is the biggest change?
- Good question! Daniel says and thinks for a while.
Then he says:
- I think the key is to not just focus on one child, but one must give one's time to both. Really make sure you don't forget the other, in this case, Estelle. Just because the little one comes and takes a lot of time and space.
What Estelle has said? How does she feel for having become a big sister?
- She thinks it's great fun! She is very proud, of course.
A few days after Oscar was born court released photos of him and Princess Estelle. In social media, many stated that they are incredibly similar.
Daniel agrees.
- They are quite similar to each other. That's right!
To whom is Oscar most similar? Mom or Dad? The Queen told me the other day that it changes from day to day.
- Yes, you! I think Oscar is a combination of both of us. But I'll may hope that he will be more and more like mom.
Even this time Prince Daniel is planning to take parental leave, just as he was with Estelle.
- I'll definitely be on paternity leave, says Daniel firmly.
- Absolutely. We'll see how it will go with all the planning.
Once again, congratulations!
- Thanks! It feels really amazing.

According to Aftonbladet's cover, Oscar is just like his mother...

I think Oscar is the carbon copy of Estelle now, and thus, looking like Daniel. If he is going to change like his sister, he will resemble his mom.
"Yet, walking free upon her own estate
Still,in her solitude, she is the Queen".

Prince Oscar Carl Olof is not the only Swedish Royal to have Olof as a middle name. Gustaf V Adolf was Oscar Fredrik Vilhelm OLOF Gustaf Adolf.
