It is a shame, that MM didn't come. I know, she is now in Seattle at the Young Global Leaders meeting, but the christening of P. Estelle is/was once time in her life, and YGL meeting will be more time..

Yeah, can't say I agree. I find it a very charming and special moment within what was a beautiful and historical ceremony in itself.

Beautiful christening. Victoria and Daniel looked so proud of their daughter.

I really liked the idea of giving her the order as she would have received it at some point anyway and at least at her christening it has been incorporated beautifully into the special occasion.

What feeling is it, that her baby cry, but she should smile to the guests... Hard work for the future queen. She is first CP, than mother... :( Sad.

Really? I would've thought if they're seeing one another that much, there'd be reams and reams of photographs of it. They live hundreds and hundreds of miles from each other, it's not as if Estelle can pop round to Willem Alexander's house if she fancies a heart to heart.

I'm sure Victoria and Daniel have many much closer friends that they've known all their lives who would've loved to be godparent to Estelle.

One or two royals I could understand, but so many seems odd.

It was indeed a great moment for him and for the whole family :)

But she won't wear the order until she turns 18.

Those royals are Victoria's friends, close friends. They have known each other all their lives. We don't get many photographs, because press on the continent seem to respect private time with friends.
Plane rides, the longest would be to the Netherlands is what maybe 2 hours long? It's not hard in modern day life to fly somewhere for the weekend. These royals have flown to Sweden for the day just for a 45 minute christening, the distance is less than 800 miles you could drive it in less than 12 hours.

This is the future Queen of Sweden 3 royal godparents is minor, Carl Gustaf has 9 godparents in total, 8 are royal.

Why aren't they showing more from the reception?! Just a small clip and then recaps on the event. I wish I could've seen the cradle better. Please tell there's a live stream somewhere that will continue...?

Whoever said that it was nice that Daniel was breaking the tradition by carrying the child, I don't think there was any break in tradition there. From what I saw, the king held all his three children on their christenings and what surprised me the most, he was the one who carried the christened baby out of the chapel every time. Either he was a very doting father or it was the tradition.

Funny to see that Estelle was a very calm baby on her christening just like mamma-Victoria and uncle Carl Philip. Auntie Madeleine though was far from calm!
