No, not yet. Princess Christina is never listed in the calendar, so her attendance is always reported in media after the Press department has been asked. Lets hope that is well enough to attend.

The Nobel Prize Award Ceremony in Stockholm
The Nobel Day, December 10, will begin with the traditional Nobel Prize Award Ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall. There will be presentation speeches about the year’s prizes before an audience of about 1,570 guests, who will then watch the Laureates as they receive their medals and diplomas one by one from the hand of H.M. the King of Sweden. The seats closest to the stage are reserved primarily for the Laureates’ families, representatives of the prize-awarding institutions, members of the Swedish government and Riksdag (Parliament) and the diplomatic corps. Seated on the stage will be nearly 100 people. They are members of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Nobel Assembly of Karolinska Institutet and the Swedish Academy, members of the Board of Directors of the Nobel Foundation and previous Laureates.
In front of them will sit the 2017 Laureates and members of Sweden’s Royal Family: H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf, H.M. Queen Silvia, H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria and H.R.H. Prince Daniel.
H.R.H. Prince Carl-Philip and H.R.H. Princess Sofia as well as H.R.H. Princess Madeleine and Mr. Christopher O’Neill will sit in the first row closest to the stage.

The Nobel Banquet in Stockholm
After the ceremony at the Concert Hall, it will be time for the evening’s Nobel Banquet at the Stockholm City Hall. The banquet programme will follow tradition and begin with the entry procession of the Royal Family and other guests of honour down the grand stairway and into the Blue Hall at 19.00. Prior to this, the guests of honour will have been presented to the Royal Family in the Prince’s Gallery of the City Hall. Behind the Master of Ceremonies will be two female attendants followed by H.M. the King with his dinner companion and H.M. the Queen with Professor Carl-Henrik Heldin, Chairman of the Board of the Nobel Foundation and the host of the evening’s banquet. In 1901 the first Nobel Banquet, held in the Hall of Mirrors of the Grand Hôtel, had 113 guests. Today the Nobel Banquet is served to about 1350 guests.

The seating plan for the Table of Honour will be published at 10.00 on December 9th.

Madeleine doesn't attend at the Nobel Banquet on 10th December, the court announced today.

- The princess will not attend the banquet. She has pain in her back because of her pregnancy and the Nobel Banquet is long. Therefore, Princess Madeleine will not attend, says Johan Tegel, information officer at the court.
When was this decided?
- It was decided on these days.
The Princess, however, attends the award ceremony in the Concert Hall just before. And also at the King's dinner at the Palace the following day.
- The Princess attends the Nobel Prize Award ceremony and plans to attend the King's dinner the following day. It's shorter, says Johan Tegel.
Chris O'Neill is scheduled to attend all three activities that the royal family has in connection with Nobel.

I'm surprised that Chris will attend the Nobel banquet. Since he is not member of the Royal House, I would assume he would only be present if Madeleine also attended the banquet, which won't be the case due to pregnancy issues.
