Finnish Iltalehti tells that when the private lunch had ended some of the guests left but the royal family, the godparents, people close to Victoria and Daniel and president Sauli Niinistö and his wife stayed at the Palace talking for a quite long time. President Niinistö and his wife gave Estelle a Glass Cube 2012 by Oiva Toikka, a very famous finnish glass designer. The inspiration of this year's cube has been the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012. Toikka has designed a yearly Glass Cube since 1977.

Toikka has become famous of his glass birds.

Did anyone else think it was strange that Madeleine was seated so far away?
She could have seated next to Daniel´s parents,so everyone of the closest family would have been near Estelle.

Probably due to royal ranking, for example a hereditary grand duke have a higher status than a princess, and Madeleine had a higher status here than Märtha Louise as Madeleine was on home ground.

But during the wedding she was seated among the queens and kings, was she not? And she is family, after all.

Yes, during the wedding she was seated in the first row, like the sister of the bridegroom,Anna Westling.

It is really strange to me, since also Anna´s husband was seated behind Daniel´s parents during the christening and so nearer than Madeleine.
When I watched the ceremony that was absolutely surprising to me, she sat somewhere in the congregation.

He was seated away.
Also unusual that she didn´t join the family for the fotos outside.

I saw the video and noticed how Pss Madeleine tried to get in concact with the man who was seating them, but he didn´t noticed that Pss Madeleine wanted to talk to with him... So perhaps she just sat down on the first free chair :)

I know which scene you mean. It seemed she really sat wrong first.Because when she arrived she let one chair free between her and stephanie de lannoy.Then she was corrected and sat next to her.

Just like the Swedish court pulled off the best royal wedding that I know of, they also organised the nicest christening ceremony. Queen Silvia was very well dressed IMO, the most elegant woman by far. Maxima and Mathilde the usul Natan mess. Nice to see Stephanie de Lannoy, it seems she wore a hat from her future mother-in-law. The chappel is very beautiful btw.
I agree. I found myself thinking of Victoria's wedding the whole time I was watching the videos and photos of the christening...she had the same radiant glow that she did when she got married. The Swedish ladies were exquisitely dressed. I actually loved Mathilde's outfit...I thought she was the best dressed guest at the event. Absolutely beautiful ceremony.
