Well, in the SRF it's more or less a tradition that a child has a paternal and a maternal sibling as their godparents, and as Daniel only have one sister there were no others to choose from.

For a second child of Victoria and Daniel it's possible that a male cousin of Daniel is choosen to "balance" Madeleine, or if there are no male cousins perhaps Daniel's brother-in-law.

Oh I don't disagree with you. Infact, that's quite common here in Australia also.

I just don't think they chose Mary as a means to add another female godparent. That the child should bear Mary's name amongst her own suggests to me that Mary was a choice from the very beginning.

Some footage of the church but mostly talking heads and clips from the wedding and birth.

Why should the father not carry his baby?

Proud parents Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden celebrate as two-month-old Princess Estelle is christened in biggest royal occasion since their own wedding
Quote:
It will be the first of a lifetime of official engagements for Europe’s newest Royal heir. Princess Estelle, second in line to the Swedish throne, was christened just after noon today in the gilded marble splendour of the royal chapel in Stockholm. To the laughter of her mother, Crown Princess Victoria, the child let out a loud gurgle as she was brought to the font, which echoed around the church. Victoria then beamed with pride for the rest of the ceremony, her daughter's long white christening gown, which has been used by the Swedish royals since 1907, draped over her knees.

Even Daily Mail published a story on the Christening; Estelle is not only adorable, she is also well and truly a star.

Estelle's christening gifts:
From the Swedish county generals (landshövdingar) she god a blue glass bowl decorated with cornflowers (the county flower of Östergötland) and made at Rejmyre in Östergötland:http://www.corren.se/ostergotland/es...4-artikel.aspx
From the cathedral of Linköping in Östergötland she gets a newly created necklace pendant, a silver star decorated with a freshwater pearl, inspired by silverworks from Vadstena cloister made in 1515: Prinsessan Estelle får ett halssmycke - Linköping - Corren.se - Östergötlands största nyhetssajt
Östergötland also "gives" the little duchess a a nature fairy walk at Lake Tåkern, known for its birdwatching: Prinsessan får en sagostig vid Tåkern - Östergötland - Corren.se - Östergötlands största nyhetssajt

On the Daily Mail article linked a few posts up, there is a particularly beautiful photo of Daniel, Victoria and little Estelle, where Victoria is gently cupping Estelle's head, and Daniel is looking down at his daughter whilst his hand is on the small of his wife's back. They seem like such a lovely family unit, and if I may say so, Princess Victoria looked beautiful in her blush pink dress!

Estelle is really cute, she's having a loving family!! How quiet she was during the whole ceremony without being asleep. It was a very nice christening. The music was wonderful and I liked that not only Victoria said a prayer but also Haakon read from the bible.

One thing is for sure, Queen Sylvia is crazy over her granddaughter, which is good bc she has had a tough year, a new baby always brings out hope

SVT says the whole ceremony will be available on their site 'from this evening', they're also broadcasting the highlights at 8pm Swedish time (an hour and 15 minutes from now).
