Victoria and Daniel bowed to the altar and to the honorary guests at the both sides also at Estelle's christening, like yesterday. Victoria and Daniel bowed to the altar at Nicolas's christening. Daniel arrived to Leonore's christening together with Carl Philip and Eva O'Neill (Victoria was the godmother). Daniel bowed to the altar. Victoria and Daniel want to show their respect to the church by bowing to the altar, they have chosen to do so and it suits them.

Still they are curtseyed by foreign princesses (and indeed by members of their courts) abroad! We could see that when WA and Maxima did their Introduction visits or at Carl Philips wedding.

CP and Madeleine are HRHs like Haakon and Mary, so they are not supposed to bow to them. HRHs only bow to Kings. regnant Queens, Queen consorts, dowager Queens, or former monarchs upon abdication.

Isn't he turining into a cute little man? From the photos Nicolas looked different from his sis, but seeing him in a video it's quite clear he shares some features with Leo, especially around the eyes...

I have a question about one of the songs performed during the ceremony: One of the last hymns was a song dedicated to the duke of Skane...but... the music was the one of the german nation anthem! Does anyone know why?

My Country Tis A Thee which is a US patriotic song has the same music as God Save The Queen.

Apparently the music for the German anthem was written by Joseph Haydn in 1797 as a anthem for Francis II, Holy Roman Emperor's birthday. The lyrics didn't come until 1841. So the music could have been used for another song. It's didn't become the German anthem until 1922.

I don't think it is the same song, is it?

Indeed the "Deutschland über alles" is a song by Joseph Haydn wiki that might be used for other purposes, but I can't really recognize it in the footage of the baptism?

Leonor has definitely inherited her cousin's spirit. She was a handful for Chris and Madeleine at the wedding as a wiggly baby. The toddler doesn't seem to have grown out of the phase I loved Nicolas' glowing toothbrush to distract him.
I've just watched the particular clip of the christening with Nicolas again, and after looking closer this time, I wonder if Nicolas's toothbrush is a toy to soothe his teething. I thought it was a generic toothbrush initially but it does look as if it could be that, too.

Yes, the Song of Skåne has the same melody than the German National Anthem.
"The piece, which Haydn wrote under the name Emperor Quartet, was performed at the Royal Chapel by Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble.
- It was actually the Song of Skåne before it became the German national anthem, says Mary Ljungqvist Hén, the court organist, who saw the song as a tribute to both the prince and grandmother Silvia, who in a few weeks has been the Swedish queen in 40 years."

What a ceremony! Oscar is so unbelievable pretty. These cherry eyes
And again, I found Leonore to be the secret main attraction. A busy little lady Liked so much how she was fighting not to miss a yot, how she stretched out to see what happened in the height, and how Victoria then took her up to show her the ceremony. My favourite scene of the whole event!

And then Nicolas with his tooth brush

The music is by Haydn and is also used in the Austrian Imperial Anthem, as seen in the clip below.
