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.

Maybe Victoria and Daniel didn't want it. I doubt a cushion/pillow would be required.

Maybe it's a very dumb remark, but wouldn't it be easier to hold the baby *without* an extra pillow?

I finally watched the video today, a lovely christening.

Daniel and Victoria are such a wonderful couple! My favourite part though was seeing Estelle with Ewa Westling. It's clear they have a very close relationship.

Absolutely yes! Without a pillow, you have a firmer grip on the baby.

Beautiful christening...I love the photo of Ewa Westling and Estelle hugging. Beautiful!

Madeleine posted this morning these photos of Estelle and Leonore to her Facebook
https://www.facebook.com/PrincessMad...59815980822508

I just wonder why she had to publish them before the court has published any official photos. I wish she would have waited until the court has published the official photos of the family with the main person of the day, prince Oscar.

Because these aren't official court pictures. Even if a photographer took them. It is a proud Aunty sharing adorable family photos. Yes, it was Oscar's day, but the picture was not about the christening. It was about the bond between the two little cousins. I am sure her and Victoria both love watching the two together. Such a sweet moment.

Now if she published pictures of Oscar before the court, would seem odd.

Yes, but Oscar and his family were the main people of the day and publishing any photos we didn't see at the christening before we have seen the official photos feels very odd to me. But it is just my opinion.

The pictures with Estelle and Leonore were too cute for words.
How much both girls have grown since the first picture of them where Estelle was holding baby Leonore. Estelle is now even big enough to wear beautiful facinator instead of little-girls bows :)

Quite frankly I don't understand why she shouldn't have post these pictures? These were pictures of two little cousins that won't be published by The Court but are too wonderful to stay hidden away! And if Victoria didn't mind her posting them, then why complain? Besides today is Mother's Day in Sweden, isn't it?

BTW: I love to see close bond between sisters and their daughters. It was soo sweet to see how at the christening Victoria was holding Leonore while Madeleine was with Estelle. I also enjoy to see loving relationship Estelle has with her Westling grandparents. Oscar is lucky to have Estelle as his big sister.
