While everything about this christening was beautiful, I didn't like the christening for just 1 reason.

Princess Madeleine seemed so not part of the celebration/ function.

There have been numerous discussions but I still believe she should have been seated further with her family. Doesn't matter if she isn't a godparent or a monarch, she still will play a big role in Princess Estelle's life.

She is after all her niece!!!

I also thought that PC's seat at the christening wasn't good. So many people who weren't even family got a better seat than her.

Madeleine was placed according to the protocol and etiquette, she sat at a section where all the royals and the heads of state sat, except Victoria, Daniel, Estelle, the king, the queen and the godparents (Haakon, Willem-Alexander, Mary and Carl Philip). The king and the queen were the hosts at the christening.
At the first row, looked from the altar sat queen Margrethe, prince Henrik, crown prince Frederik, princess Maxima, Dorrit Moussaieff, the wife of the president of Iceland, president of Finland, Sauli Niinistö and his wife Jenni Haukio, crown prince Philippe and crown princess Mathilde.
At the second row sat hereditary grand duke Guillaume, Stéphanie de Lannoy, princess Madeleine, princess Christina, Tord Magnuson, princess Margarethe, princess Birgitta, princess Désirée, princess Märtha Louise and Ari Behn.

I agree. She was not really involved. Best option would have been to place her next to Daniel´s parents! Even Anna´s husband was placed behind Daniel´s parents.

In this pic you can see that a lot of people were seated behind the family....

In May 2012 an 13-year old oak was delivered to Haga park in honor of the christening of Princess Estelle. Victoria, Daniel and Estelle were all present. The tree was brought from Billbäcks, which is engaged in the cultivation of plants. Victoria helped to plan the oak.
