From the Instagram of Berndt Arell, the Director General of the Nationalmuseum, he got the invitation yesterday:

This christening will most likely be very similar to the christening of Princess Estelle. Maybe not as many foreign royal guests (except the godparents) but more friends and family.

Alexanders christening will likely be more similar to the christening of Leonore and Nicolas. A lot of speculation going on here in Sweden right now that A will be christened at Öland in July or in the beginning of August. Time will tell. But that's speculations for another thread.

Expressen has now got prime minister Stefan Löfven's invitation to the christening. Löfven and his wife are also invited to the reception and to the private lunch after that.
At 13:00 the Crown Princess couple with the royal couple have a reception at the Palace. There is served champagne and dainty sandwiches. It is a tradition and the person who is invited to the church is not automatically also invited to the reception.
The finest is to additionally receive an invitation to the royal couple's private lunch to celebrate the new little prince and his baptism. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven's invitation shows that the private lunch starts at 14.30.
There are just the closest friends, relatives, and in this case, the Prime Minister invited. This is where the king usually helds a small speech to the child.

Some municipalities have said no to participation at "Prince Oscar's Nature Playground", the christening present governor Margareta Pålsson wants to give to prince Oscar. According to Skånska Dagbladet Malmö, Svedala, Lund and Kävlinge have said no (Malmö has told that they will give another present). Ystad, Sjöbo, Trelleborg and Tomelilla have said yes. But in Tomelilla Social Democrats have appealed the decision to contribute money.
The collection isnow, despite some resistance up to SEK 600 000, mainly thanks to donations from the companies.
One of the entrepreneurs who have participated is builder and hockey magnate Percy Nilsson in Malmö. Through his company Parfast he contributes by 20 000 SEK to Prince Oscar's playground.
- One should take part in. Prince Oscar is the future, he will represent Sweden and Skåne in the years to come, says Percy Nilsson to Kvällsposten.
- It's too bad that they don't want to take part. This is all about so little money for the municipalities in Skåne.
Nilsson says he has absolutely not sought any attention for his gift. He was surprised when Skånska Dagbladet wanted to talk with him about this.
- I haven't done this with any purpose for myself. I didn't know that they would find out about it.
- But I think that the whole royal family are doing a really good job. They represent Sweden in a really nice, and business-like manner. I don't care about their name and don't see them as royalty but as people who are doing something good for the country.

@Lady Finn - I wonder what is behind the objections? Are these cities bastions of republicanism or is there a local economic strain and the contributions are too much on the cities' public coffers? Looks like private and some public funding for the playground now.

Probably both. Different priorities wether there is left wing or right wing political majority.

It can also be something that aligns with past dealings with the organizers (animosities, rivalries, etc.) and or/your local ideas being rejected. Just saying.

The officiating clergy at the christening of Prince Oscar will be the The Most Reverend Dr. Antje Jackelén, Archbishop, assisted by The Right Reverend Dr. Johan Dalman, Bishop and Chief Court Chaplain, and The Reverend Michael Bjerkhagen, Court Chaplain and Rector of the Royal Court Parish.
After the christening ceremony there will be a reception for invited guests, after which a private lunch will take place.
The invited guests are the immediate family, European Royal families, and representatives of the Riksdag, the Government and official Sweden.
Prince Oscar will be christened in the same gown worn by Princess Estelle, Princess Leonore, and Prince Nicolas at their christenings, and the water used at the christening will come from a spring on Öland.

Special website for the christening has been opened to the swedish website of the court. Those who want to give presents, the crown princess couple hopes that they would consider a donation to the Crown Princess Couple's Foundation. The christening font will be the same used at Estelle's christening, and the cradle will be Karl XV's cradle used for Leonore and Nicolas.

Can't wait for the christening! I'm anxious for the guest list and the godparents.

yes, i am excited to find out who his godparents will be. the only obvious one that comes to mind is of course madeleine. i hope they choose royal godparents (mostly) for oscar too.

for that matter, i see that neither oscar nor alexander have been added to the royal family website yet...

So there is now an official confirmation that European royal families have been invited, which suggests at least one (possibly more) royal godparents.

Not surprising for royals coming; Oscar is the son of a future queen. As for a royal godparent, besides Madeleine, I'm betting Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark.

I wouldn't be shocked by Fred, but I am not certain he will be. Victoria has a lot of people to honor, including the parents of her royal godchildren. She used Mary for Estelle. I would love Philippe/Mathilde since she is to Eleanor. She is also said to be very close to Guillaume and he would be a nice choice this time. I still think Maddie (sure bet), 2 foreign royals, and then either 2 friends or a friend and one of Vic's cousins.

Governor Margareta Pålsson told on Tuesday at the website of the County Administrative Board of Skåne, that the collection of Prince Oscars symbolic christening present - a Nature Playground in Söderåsen National Park - is now up to 600,000 SEK.
- We now have enough money to build a Nature Playground, but we need to get together a little more to get something really good. Therefore, we keep the collection open throughout June. The more money, the more fun it will be for Skåne's children, says Governor Margareta Pålsson.
Since the collection was opened to the public a large number of people contributed with larger and smaller sums.
- All individuals who are involved are equally pleasing. Many realize that this is a really good present, which Skåne's children and hospitality industry will have benefit. A lovely nature playground, built in and by nature, will make that even more families will find the amazing National Park of Söderåsen, says Pålsson.

Translation

Skånska Dagbladet told on Wednesday that Svalöv municipality is positive to contribute to the christening present of Prince Oscar.
On the meeting of the municipal executive board it was decided that the municipality contributes with one SEK per inhabitant.
- We think it is a good decision. The money stays on Söderåsen and it is not directly directed present to the new prince, says municipal Torbjörn Ekelund.
Unlike many other municipalities Svalöv chooses to accommodate the wishes of the governor Margareta Pålsson sent out. Many have dropped out and told that they don't want to use tax money for such purposes.
In Svalöv they think differently. Not least given that the playground should be placed in the nature reserve and at the same time it means great PR with more and new tourists from outside.
- One can question the decision purely ideological, but given that Prince Oscar does not receive the money personally, the present stays on Söderåsen and all the children who go there have the benefit of the playground, we see the decision as entirely reasonable.
Where the new playground will be placed is not yet decided. Most likely, the choice will be between Svalöv and Klippan municipalities.
- Of course we want the playground placed with us, but on the whole it does basically not matter. The tourists who come to the area move across Söderåsen, Torbjörn Ekelund thinks.
