Not correct. Princesses could inherit the throne but their brother(s) would come first in the line of succession.

No, they were excluded entirely.

No, Sweden introduced Salic law in 1810, which limited inheritance to the throne to males. It wasn't until the introduction of equal primogeniture in 1979, that returned females to the line of inheritance.

Oh ok. I know that the succession act was amended several times before 1979 as well so I assumed it had previously included women.

The Rikstag page says this:

Until the 1970s male descendents always had precedence to the throne. A woman could only become Queen if there were no male alternatives.

Women had become reigning queens prior to 1810, but the act of succession ratified that year expressly banned female succession.

"§3. Members of the royal house of the female sex, and their descendants, even those who are of the male sex, have no right to the crown and rulership of Sweden."

The court refuses to tell how much the christening costs. It will be totally paid from the apanage. The economy director of the court Jan Lindman says that they don't reveal the costs of a single event. Eva Sonidsson from the Social Democratic party isn't satisfied with the information the court gives about the apanage.

Did they release the cost for Estelle? Can't imagine it would be that far off

Nobody was interested about that because Estelle is the child of the crown princess, and the future queen. Christening of Madeleine's child is another thing. But the king has decided that it is a state occasion and everything is paid from the apanage.

There has been a rehearsal today at the Drottningholm Chapel for the christening.
Expressen:
Louise Gottlieb is there, and Chris' sister Natascha. They left the hotel after 15.00 to go to Drottningholm. The guests sang psalm "Tryggare kan ingen vara" (that was also at Estelle's christening). Chris read a prayer in english. The priest told about what is happening tomorrow when the archbishop speaks. Madeleine read gospel about Jesus and children.
The most interesting thing is that at the photos in the article is also Patrick Sommerlath.

Aftonbladet
Ernst von Abensperg und Traun arrived with Louise Gottlieb. Aftonbladet thinks that this could mean that they both are godparents. Also psalm ""En vänlig grönskas rika dräkt" was sung at the rehearsal.
In Aftonbladet's photos is also Patrick Sommerlath.

The Swedish people have the right to be informed about the cost, of course.

Very kind of Victoria to help her sister at the rehearsals!

Patrick Sommerlath is Madeleine's cousin, he is the son of queen Silvia's brother Walther.
Count Ernst is the husband of Chris' sister Natascha.

More photos of the rehearsal, Louise Gottlieb, Patrick Sommerlath, Tatjana d'Abo and Ernst von Apensberg und Traun at the photos.

I am not surprised by the choice of some, but I am still bummed that there are no other royal godparents from other houses. (I am not as disappointed when I realised George wasn't going to have a single HRH among his godparents.)

Can you tell me who Tatjana is? Thanks :)

And I am not surprised at Victoria and Louise being godparents at all. I think she made some good choices.

Tatjana d'Abo is Chris' sister. They have the same mother, Eva O'Neill.

Natascha is Chris' half-sister, not step-sister. She and Chris are both children of Eva.

Madeleine and Carl Philip are godparents to Patrick Sommerlath's twins Anais and Chloë. So now Patrick will be Leonore's godfather.
