So agree with you on SH.........oh well he has to live with her and so do the people of Sweden. Not very ladylike at all!

Exactly! The King is following the government's wishes in treating his daughter the same way he would a son. Carl Philip's name and title will stay the same when he gets married, so Madeleine's do as well. Carl Philip's children will be HRH Prince(ss) and get the Seraphim, so Madeleine's children do as well.

Madeleine isn't spoiled. She and her daughter are being treated just as the Swedish government intended the Sovereign's female descendants to be when they changed the law.

I noticed the Swedish christening gown is similar to the second christening gown used by the Danish twin. Any connections?

Indeed she is, but Chris isn't, and they have both made it clear that they don't think of themselves as a Royal couple...in so many ways

Some other musings:

-Estelle is one of the most enchanting children-Royal or otherwise-that I have ever seen. She is by far the best dressed of all the Royal little ones, imo. Is the dress she wore today the exact same dress Victoria wore in 1980? If so, they did a marvelous job preserving it...it's over 30 years old!

-Leonore is almost too gorgeous for words. She is perfect. I like the cradle she was placed in much better than the one that was used for Estelle, even though it's "only" from 1826. The cradle they used for Estelle looked as if it was about to fall apart, imo.

-Madeleine's hair is unbelievable. She could do hair commercials if she wanted to!

-I love the way the pastel floral arrangement matched the ladies dresses!

Josephine's christening gown actually belonged to Queen Ingrid who was a Swedish princess by birth, so there might be a connection to the Swedish christening gown right there.

Just wanted to thank one and all for the great pictures and links from today. I had an invasion of buzzing blood suckers, mosquitos not vampires, go after me all last night. So much for sleep and so much for seeing this live as I intended. Grrr!!

Loved Estelle as usual. Victoria and Daniel really are doing such an excellent job of raising this young lady.

Other than that thing she had on her head, I loved Madeleine's dress today and didn't Chris look proud of his girls!?! Also, finally a picture of Leonore w/her eyes open!! Every single one I've seen of her, she's been sleeping.

Looks like it was a very happy day full of joy.

Oh...And a Happy First Wedding Anniversary to the new Mommy and Daddy!! :)

Totally agree. Also quite like the outfit to Louise's right. Added: bit of a shame about the stocking as per zarat.

For a minute I thought "who is this woman that Chris is hugging so dearly?" But it is one of his cousins. Sweet to see that Chris is so close to his family.

I would agree with that......

Unless Madeleine gave her blessing since Chris can't spend that much time with his family, but still I find it a bit weird.

My belated review of the Christening, for what it's worth ;-)

I loved that the ceremony was intimate and seemed to be in a smaller setting. Good choice to not invite foreign royals, then I guess it is hard to restrict and limit the guestlist to only those that M&C are close with.

I loved the ladies' dresses, especially Eva O'Neill's.
Madde's, Alice's and Sofia's dresses were too short. For Madde and Sofia, it was forgivable as they sat with a baby on the lap/ not front row.
I would have liked it better if Chris had worn a tie to match his wife's outfit. Madde needs to loose some weight around the waist and Chris needs to loose weight overall, his vest seemed too tight and he looked chubby to me. Maybe Daniel can arrange a Personal Trainer for them while they are in Sweden?

What I did notice is that M&C were not at all affectionate towards each other. This was the baptism of their love product and i did not see them hold hands, look at each other, kiss hands, etc. Maybe they feel a bit awkard doing this in public. When they are pictured privately, they seem more cuddly.

She just gave birth 3 month ago. She doesn't need to look perfectly around the waist and comments like this shouldn't be made. A baby belly comes nine month and goes nine month. She still has a lot of time to get back in shape. And even if she holds a few extra pounds back, who cares?

To me 3 month after giving birth she looks wonderful, even though there are still baby pounds on her body. I also like her fuller face very much. She looks happy, healthy and like a very proud new mommy.

I agree with the above post. For giving birth only back in February, I think she looks wonderful, and her figure looks just fine. Even if she is loosing the baby weight, she does not have to do it quickly, some people just like to take their time. But at the moment, I think she looks great :)

Anyway, off that subject, I absolutely love the official christening photos, they are absolutely lovely. :)
