Princess Estelle has "morfar" already wrapped around her finger.

Shouldn't it be The Crown Princessly Family as Victoria is a Crown Princess in her own right, expressed this way it gives the impresson that it's photos of the family of a Crown Prince.

I suppose that would be more accurate, however I must admit "Crown Princessly" just doesn't sound right to me.
Besides, we all know Victoria is the Crown Princess, and my wording will hardly affect that.

Since the court uses "crown princess couple" in english of Victoria and Daniel, why can't it be "crown princess family?" Crown princely family it can't be.

It does make sense. Unfortunately, editing my post is not longer possible (over 2 days have passed), but I'll make sure to write the correct way in future.

What with so many future Queens in the next generation (Estelle, Catharina Amalia, Ingrid Alexandra, Leonor, Elisabeth), we might as well get used to the correct term of "Crown Princess Family".

Yes, in one of the videos you can see CPss Victoria looking at Prince Daniel and with her eyes asking for the pacifier - which he then finds in his pocket

Estelle is adorable and so very well adored by all of her family. The christening gown is exquisite, and the little sash so fitting for a princess born to be queen.

The ceremony was very regal, yet very much a family affair. It was majestic and yet not stuffy. It was full of pomp and circumstance, yet full of love and warmth. From what I have seen, the Swedish really do these ceremonial aspects well - not only maintaining the traditions but also ensuring their place in modern day culture, giving them a flavor, a relevance that is totally 'today.'

Many have asked but I have not noticed a response, so does anyone know what the dress code was? I found it somewhat odd that Haakon and Carl Phillip were in uniform while William Alexander was not? Especially as it appears that there was much coordination of attire behind the scenes among the family and godparents (and their spouses).

The dress code was in Swedish Förmiddagsdräkt, in English Morning dress: Morning dress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A Dress uniform is always considered correct when there is a formal dress code, and wearing a uniform is the only way you can wear a sash during daytime wear. Why Willem-Alexander chose to not wear a uniform I don't know, perhaps he feels more comfortable in a morning dress than in uniform or that he only wears a uniform at evening events.

Thank you. To me, William Alexander looked a little out of place next to the other godfathers. Yet I wonder if it was an intended decision - with the colors that he wore (and also that Frederik and Maxima wore, for example) I cannot help but wonder if they all coordinated their attire!

I've finally had a chance to watch the whole service and have to say the Swedish court pulled it out of the bag! It was an intimate family service but also regal as befitting a future Queen. Daniel and Victoria make such a wonderful couple and it is beyond sweet how Daniel cant stop looking at his two girls.

On another note I have to say I loved how Daniel's sister Anna dressed her daughters and step-daughter. Very sweet and appropriate with matching jackets and a slightly older dress for Hedvig.

I wonder why Estelle was only given one of her godmother's names?

Maybe Willem Alexander thinks that uniforms don't suit to the christening of a little child? Frederik hadn't an uniform either.

They might just have been following what happens in their respective houses. I don't think Willem-Alexander or Frederik wore a uniform to their own children's christenings either.

I think in Nederland it's not a tradition to wear a uniform at christenings(In all of his daughters christenings he was wear a suit, not a uniform ) and because that he was wear a morning suit instead of uniform IMO

He is quite a hunk of man, for sure. Does anyone know his actual height? I am guessing 6'4".

The funny thing is, while he appears to tower over his fellow royals, he is not that tall. His height is 6' (183-184 cm). As such, he is just 5 cm taller than Prince Charles or Prince Carl Philip, and actually shorter than Prince Harry (6'2"), or Prince William (who is 6'3"). What makes him appear more powerfully built his built, which is slightly heaver than the Princes I mentioned.
