Considering that either Victoria or both Victoria & Daniel are seen with her virtually daily in Haga Park it's a very good record and it shows that for now the swedish media understand their part of the deal.

My view is also that the number of pics for the two little princesses is equal. I feel however that it is more discreet to release an official picture than to have a fairly long chat with the press at the exit of the hospital. Anyway that suits probably better the press!! I read Swedish bloggers regretting that it took a too long time before they saw her eyes. Incidentally they had both the appearance at the balcony on the occasion of birthdays of grandparents.

Wow. Cant believe little Estelle is already three months old and she is such a cute baby. I think she looks like Victoria. Will the baptism be broadcast in the U.S.? Cant wait to see the celebrations.

It starts at 12.00 swedish time, program here:
Program 22 maj - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]
The guests start to arrive at 11.00 swedish time. After the christening the king and the queen host a reception, and after that there is a private lunch.

Sofia and Chris attend the Baptism
Now the king defies tradition

Chris O'Neill and Sofia Hellqvist are both invited to Estelle's baptism. Normally no royal children's boyfriends and girlfriends have been invited to the official events before they got engaged. But this time it's different. Both Chris and Sofia have received a personal invitation from the king and queen.
- Daniel was never invited before he became engaged to Victoria. But this is a clear recognition that Chris and Sofia are now part of the family. I don't think they have forced themselves to this, but it is simply a clear statement from the royal couple that they have accepted Madeleine's and Carl Philip's partners. It's great that the king departs from the old principles that they should be engaged to appear in official contexts. Both Madeleine and Carl Philip are living with their partners so it is natural that they attend the baptism. It is obviously a sign that Carl Philip and Madeleine will soon be engaged. Within a year, both Chris and Sofia are part of the family in full, says Roger Lundgren, chief editor of the royal magazine "Kungliga magasinet".

Swedish newpapers and magazines (remember Svensk Damtidning and the date for the baptism?) tend to come up with royal news in the hope it will turn out to be correct. We will just have to wait and see. If Chris and Sofia are indeed invited for the official part of the event we can assume engagements are planned shortly or have already happened and will become official soon. Committments for engagement and marriage must certainly have been made in order for the King to allow the two to attend.

Roger Lundgren, who comments at the Aftonbladet's story, is also involved with SVT's live coverage of the christening as a commentator and royal expert.

Scanned article from Se & Hör, Victoria and Estelle with Victoria's friend Caroline Nilsson and her daughters on 2nd May at Bögsgård in Sollentuna, 15 minutes drive north from Stockholm. Since Victoria likes nature and animals, it has become one of hers and Estelle's favourite places.

It's the right size and shape but a lot of smartphones look like that.

Well, Victoria and Daniel got the latest Nokia phones from the Finnish president recently, so it could be that one.
