Both Carl Philip and Madeleine went to Medevi and was confirmed at Vadstena klosterkyrka. They went with the church Oscarskyrkan in Stockholm and their reverend Hans Rhodin.

He confirmed Victoria to, but in Räpplinge church on Öland, close to Solliden.
Victoria and her group had their camp at Solliden, where they slept in an old barn and lived wilderness life with various exercises.

Well it seems that Princess Benedikte of Denmark attended Madelaine's confirmation. I don't know about anybody else? It seems that only the godparents attend, so does she have royal godparents?

The Crown Princess was confirmed in the summer of 1992 at Räpplinge church on the island of Öland

Prince Carl Philip was confirmed in the summer of 1994 at Vadstena Church, after confirmation studies in Medevi


Princess Madeleine was confirmed in the summer of 1997 at Vadstena Church, after confirmation studies in Medevi

How about the king and his systers?

Is it an obligation in Sweden to have turned 15 years old to be confirmed?

Princess Margaretha, Princess Birgitta and Princess Desirée was confirmed in Levene Church in Västergötland.

Princess Christina and The King was both confirmed at Öland.
Princess Christina in Gärdslösa Church (where Margareta later married) and The King in Borgholm Church.

I haven't heard that there would be an age limit. The only requirement i have heard about for confirmation in "Church of Sweden" is that you have to be baptized.

A very long time ago it was there but Princess Sibylla wanted her children to have the same confirmation as all swedish children so they got a "normal" confirmation. It has been that way ever since.

From the website of Svenska Kyrkan (Church of Sweden)

The year you turn 14 Swedish church invites you to be confirmed
Early confirmation
Did you start school earlier and would like be confirmed along with your buddies? According to the guidelines for the Swedish Church's confirmation work confirmation worship service can be at the earliest the year when a person turns 15 years. But if there are special circumstances, the parish can make exceptions.

I am Catholic and I was confirmed when I was about 15, but I don't recall anything about a chosen saint's name.

The laying of hands is a way of invoking the Holy Spirit and signifies, in the Church of Sweden, the moment of confirmation itself. The priest & the confirmation guides (or whatever theyre called) lay their hands on the confirmand and prays for him/her. Once thats over youre confirmed and allowed to receive the Holy Communion.
