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.

sooooo cute
this girls are precious

Official photos, by photographer Anna-Lena Ahlström
http://www.kungahuset.se/images/200....oyalCourt..jpg

From here

What a disappointment, why they let Anna-Lena Ahlström took these photos, these are way too much airbrushed... And they should have chosen another place, the white/gold background makes these photos look very cold. Estelle and Oscar are cute. Only Olle Westling brings warmth to the photo he is in. He is such a warm person, that is wonderful.
The photos Bruno Ehrs took in Estelle's christening are thousand times better, the red background gave warmth in them and Ehrs used imagination and not all the photos were the same.
I wouldn't want to look as a parent these photos for the rest of my life, these photos have nothing about the feeling that was at the christening on Friday. Ahlström has managed to take Victoria's whole personality away from the photos, that isn't the true, warm Victoria at the photos at all.

I think these pictures are better than official pictures of Estelle. Yes, they are visible airbrused but these ones are much brighter, love the white and golden backround and blooms in the vase. There's certain loveliness and warmth in these pictures.

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.

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?
I think I chose the wrong video, where the music was a bit faster. Thank you for the response though

Thanks to everyone who replied to my question. I was only baffled and feared some plagiarism

I think the official pictures are okay, but not more than that. Compare them to the pictures of Carl Philip, Sofia and Alexander that we got two weeks ago. They were so much better in color and composition.

I like the pictures, although I prefer the more natural ones of Estelle's chrstening. Glad that the king bothered to be in a picture with the crown princess and her "heirs".

The pictures were wonderful, and I especially love this one:

The picture with CG, Victoria, Estelle & Oscar was interesting and I didn't expect it. Perhaps it was meant to show the succession.

These photos should not be compared to those photos at all because they were taken to another purpose. These can be compared to the other christening photos. Bruno Ehrs took Estelle's, Anna-Lena Ahlström Leonore's and these and Mattias Edwall Nicolas's. Ehrs' photos are the best because of their beautiful warm coloired background, more imagination is used and people in them are natural and not too much photoshopped, there is also a relaxed feeling in them. The rest of the photos are very similar but Ahlström ruined these and Leonore's with way too much Photoshop, that is why Edwall's photos are better than Ahlström's.

Why shouldn't they? I think that it's pretty clear that the a skilled photographer can take beautiful pictures, no matter what the circumstances are. And I still like the other ones better. These aren't bad, but they could have been better.

Because these are formal christening photos and are meant to be such. If you look at them in the past, they tend to be a bit stuffy. CP and Sofia's have a very different feeling because they are meant to be more personal family portraits.

I really do hope they release some more photos of the shoot of Oscar's first photograph with his mom. I don't buy there was only one photo taken by the photographer. I would love to see some more intimate photos. We got a whole shoot of Nicolas and now Alexander, but only 2 shots of Oscar, beyond the christening.

I like the photos in all. Happy there is one with the king, Victoria and both grandchildren. I would have loved though if he was holding Oscar, like he held Estelle. I know Oscar isn't the future heir, but still.Or at least holding or having contact with Estelle, he seems to be photo bombing, he is not really connected to the photo. Still, happy we got one of the 4.

Little surprised not one of the whole family (Chris, Sofia, Michael, the kids).

I fear that this kind of photos are always heavily photoshopped. Honestly I don't see this great difference between the photos from the various christenings. They all look little natural, very severe, rigidly composed. Of course these are official photos but still an effort to give a more warm impression could be done.

They are of course photoshopped, but I like them. The lighting, the colours etc. The ones of Estelle had these ghastly red background, which absorbed everyone. But everyones taste is different.

First piece of art to prince Oscar:
Uppåkra Archaeological Centre in Skåne gives the prince the opportunity to dig up some history, they gave him a shovel as christening present. At their press release the Foundation tells that that they want to give the Prince the opportunity to dig in Uppåkra and thus take part in the historically important process.
And in addition to that they gave him an artwork "Lager på lager" from Marie Louise Kold to symbolise the gift: a visual poem that shows the many layers and the story underneath it all... Archaeology encapsulated in a work of art.

This artwork isn't the first piece of Marie Louise Kold's art at the Haga Palace.
Danish artist Marie Louise Kold lives and works in Malmö (in Skåne), Victoria and Daniel visited her studio in March 2011 on their official visit to Malmö and Kold gave them a small artwork as a present (which has been seen at the veranda of Haga Palace).

Norwegian royal expert Kjell Arne Totland writes at his blog, that Estelle wore at the christning for the first time a necklace of real pearls, which she got as her christening gift four years ago.
Lille Oscars store dag _ Kongebloggen - Kjell Arne Totland

More christening gifts for Oscar
Föreningen Jöns Henrikssons Minne (Association in memory of Jöns Henriksson) holds guided tours in 17th Century Park in East Sallerup where the famous accolade to the king in stones (Karl XI's stones) is.
- We want as a christening gift invite the whole family and other accompanying them to a guided tour of the park. Furthermore, we want to offer Prince Oscar to become an honorary member of this non-profit association that manages and develops the park, writes Eva Griffin, president of the association, at the christening gift which has been sent to the royal court.
- As Prince Oscar is also the Duke of Skåne, we see it as a natural part of his role to take part of Skåne's history, writes Eva Griffin who thinks that the park deserves far more attention in Skåne, Sweden and Denmark.

Love the DM's constant inability to fact check. Hans Astrom and Oscar Magnuson:

Quote:
Prince Daniel's friend Hans Astrom and Oscar Magnuson who is also a family friend of the royals and King Carl XVI Gustaf
Okay maybe I can believe Hans can be an easy slip but Oscar???? Um how often does the DM report on Princess Christina MAGNUSON???? I am pretty sure Oscar is more than a 'friend'of the king.

Next week Prince Oscar will be christened. Just in time for that baker Jörgen Vollmer brings the giant cake to the capital.
- It is baked to the christening. But the cake will not be taken to the Palace. It will stand at the NK department store so that people can see it, Vollmer says.
The cake measures approximately two meters and the production took a total of twelve hours.
- Baking took ten hours. We baked it in one piece. But we have the right-sized ovens so it went well.
Vollmer had both his wife and mother to help him. But it is not a record cake.
- It's the biggest I've done. But it is not a world record. The bakery's former owner, my wife's uncle has the world record, he baked a cake that was almost four meters high. It is still at the Guinness Book of Records.
The transportation trip starts on Sunday and includes an overnight stay.
- I have built a special cradle where the cake is set during the car ride. So it will survive.
Vollmer has plenty of experience.
- Yes, I have a little routine. Genuine spettkakor may only be baked in Skåne. So I transport them to other places.
