We were privileged to share a wonderful moment with the SRF. Their ways are not necessarily our ways, but respect for the differences is what counts.

P.S. He's a fussy baby, like Madeleine was.

P.P.S. BTW, it's a small thing, but it looks to me like Madeleine's hair piece is the same color as Sofia's dress (kind of raspberry). A subtle gesture. If a gesture, nice.

Well most babies cry at their baptism I wouldn't say he was a fussy baby we have only seen him for 40 mins don't think there was anything in dresses and hair pieces being the same colour can't imagine anyone doing that.

And this "gesture" showed in your opinion what?! Madeleines great love for her sister in law? What would this have to do with the christening of Ms son? Come on...

During some (most) of the hymns in the Swedish psalm book the congregation sit, and there are others where they stand up.

Yes she is :) They mentioned in the commentary that this is the first time she's been seen wearing the family order :) We'll no doubt see it on her at nobel as well :)

I agree. It looks weird, the baby has no idea but hoppa! there is the Order of the Seraphim. In Houses of Nassau and Orange-Nassau the children of the respective Chefs de la Maison automatically -like in Sweden- have the Grand Cross in the Ordre du Lion d'Or de la Maison de Nassau. However, the actual "delivery" of the decorations happens when they have reached the age of 18 years. So the automatism is the same, the practical workings somewhat different.

Of course, it is given to all the women of the royal family. But the court doesn't use "Royal Family Order" at their website, but "a miniature portrait of The King framed with brilliants".

Lovely photos.
Has Estelle's tot sized gilt chair been seen before?
I didn't watch the live stream (up late watching football, golf, hockey and baseball) so just looking at the Leonore photos I have to ask - how long did they let her wander around? Who grabbed her (Very cute IMHO) headband?

And finally, when do the children get to wear their baby orders? I'm assuming the occasion has to be right, but also, is there an age limit?

I thought all looked great, Estelle was charming, as usual. Cuteness overload. Well done.
