And if the article above is to be believed, Sofia and Chris will not attend the christening.

It is a given that they will not attend.

I guess we will not know that for sure until when we see the guest list, or next Tuesday at the christening at last.

The office of president Niinistö has told to the press, that because of the good relationship between Finland and Sweden, and him and the royal family, Niinistö wanted to ensure that he could attend the christening.

Folke and Estelle Bernadotte's sons Bertil and Folke Bernadotte are invited to the christening. Folke can't attend because of illness, but Bertil will arrive with his wife Jill. Bertil told to Aftonbladet, that it is very nice that Estelle is christened after his mother, after all the king is christened after his father. It is great to see little Estelle, they have seen just photos of her. He will give a private present for Estelle, something from his mother. He didn't want to say more, not to spoil the suprise - if someone from the royal family reads Aftonbladet. He says that they have only little contact to the royal family, he has sometimes contact to Madeleine.

It's great that the presidential couple will attend.

I wonder what the secret present will be.. jewellery perhaps? I'm sure we will not hear anything about Countess Estelle's tiara and jewellery set until it surfaces at some event (I am aware that no-one has confirmed that the parure is in possession of the Royal family and I am also aware that it will not be the present that they are discussing in the article). For some reason I'm thinking of a brooch or something.

So it looks like they'll be using the Princes' cradle which last held Prince Carl Philip.

I wonder what they plan to do with future children.

The guest list doesn't include all the guests. I see Prince Henrik is not mentioned but on Kongehuset.dk's site he is mentioned as accompanying the Queen. I'm afraid Sofia and Chris will arrive.

^^^ I didn't realise not all names were on the list. I had thought it sad that Victoria's friend Caroline would not be there but she must be going and just not mentioned.

It will be lovely to see Guillaume and Stephanie together!

I don't think they mention non-official people on the list. I'm glad yet invited the doctor who delivered Estelle, though.

As Victoria had several monarchs as her godparents maybe Estelle will have a few monarchs along with some of the crown princely heads.

I only expected Norway and Denmark so it's a pleasant surprise to see the Benelux houses.

According to Svenska Dagbladet, Sofia and Chris are invited but Bertil Ternert cannot say whether they will be at the christening as 'he has not received 100 per cent answer yet.' This makes me think it's very last minute but I'm not getting my hopes up!

Ah, I was hoping to see Albert & Charlene of Monaco on the list.

I wonder if they were asked and were just not able to attend. ?

I see that CP Mette-Marit isn't on the list. I'm sure that she would have been invited.

No Sofia & Chris. ? So much for the media saying they, especially Sofia, would be there. ! Looks like they got it wrong .... again.

I never got the impression that Victoria was close to Albert. Then again, I was surprised Guillaume was invited. Mette Marit has an event scheduled in advance.

The court confirmed that Sofia and Chris were invited but according to the article I just posted, they may not show up. I hope somebody had a last minute realization that it was a bad idea.
