I haven't been able to find a picture of Daniel's nieces and step-niece and nephew. I saw one of Michael, his brother in law. Did the children attend?

Yes all 4 children attended. I haven't found a photo link yet, but during the ceremony, they and Mikael were shown several times. They were seated in the family section, next to Countess Gunilla Bernadotte I think.

(Also..what happened to Mikael? Why is he on crutches?)

Almost certainly.
Most probably, the pictures will be released tomorrow, just as official pictures from Princess Athena's christening were released a day later.

Estelle is one lucky child and I don't mean the material gain from being born royal. Victoria and Daniel ooze love and care for their daughter and occasionally photos really translate the emotion of the people in them, these are like that, I can FEEL the love in these photos of Vic Dan and Estelle.

I just looked through all 463 pictures on the Swedish Royal family website ... gotta say that Carl Philip should give his girlfriend a gift certificate for some dental work to fill-in that gaping space between her two front teeth BEFORE he gives her a ring :)

Has anyone seen a photo of the back of Victoria's hair? In some of the photos, it appears that her hat wraps around in the back. I'd like to see it from the back. Thanks in advance.

May have found my own answer - or at least a bit of it

The Swedish royal family website has over 400 great photos. You can see them in that set of photos

I don't see why you feel the need to bite my head off for merely stating my opinion.

None of the women really wowed me clothes-wise. Victoria looked pretty nice, but the shoes weren't great. The most beautiful thing there was the chapel itself. It's quite small but still very imposing.
No one was biting anyones head off.

Though to state it as having seemed 'odd', is imo, an interesting comment to have made; especially in light of your response.

If someone is made aware of how something - a benevolent custom - is practiced (as has been stated above) in another country or region, amongst families and friends, then why are they resolved to remain 'mystified' by it and address it in censorious terms? Especially if they should claim to be so well informed.

Surely a level of understanding, on the behalf of that indavidual, would have arisen as a result of their informed knowledge.

As for the chapel, I could not agree more. It really is a beautiful setting. A tonne of majesty in that space.

A lovely event and obviously a very happy day for the Swedish Royal family. Victoria looked almost giddly happy. Daniel is clearly already wrapped around his daughter's little finger. As for Estelle, she is absolutely adorable.
