According to Aftonbladet Alice Bamford is the heiress to JCB, the well-known British manufacturer of agricultural and construction equipment. Her father Anthony who runs JCB today is estimated according to Forbes magazine to have a fortune of over 45.5 billion SEK. The Independent tells that Alice Bamford lives on the U.S. West Coast in Malibu where she runs an organic ranch and restaurant.

The godparents list is almost exactly as I had predicted. Mostly family members, with a couple of Chris' aristocratic in-laws to add gravitas.

nice that they released the godparents! victoria is no surprise (although i had expected they would have chosen not to chose immediate family members...), and so is louise gottlieb and one of chris' sisters.

interesting to see that chris' mother stays at the hotel rather than at the palace or madeleine's appartments as a guest of the royal family...

Between 1810 and 1979 women were excluded from the Swedish order of succession. I have posted a mail to the Riksdag information site and asked for them to correct the information on the page.

I had guessed Victoria, Louise and one of Madeleine's male cousins, either Patrick or one of the Magnusson brothers, as well as one of Chris' sisters and a friend of his, although my guess was a male friend, not a female.

I assume that 3 out of 6 are actually Roman Catholics, like Chris: Tatjana, Patrick and Ernst.

Don't know about Patrick Sommerlath. But Tatjana and her husband definitely are.

The woman in black next to Madde seems to be the nanny. She was also on the pics of the couple leaving their house in NY.

Got three out of six godparents right (Victoria, Louise and Tatjana) – that's not too shabby if I have to say so myself. I love that they included a Sommerlath, I had a sneaking suspicion that they would add either a Sommerlath or Bernadotte cousin (or both). I also love that they (presumably) chose three godparents each.

I'm still quite sad that there's no foreign royal godparent *sigh*, but I presume it makes sense that they wouldn't pick any as Madeleine isn't nearly as close to any foreign royals as Victoria is. Would also have loved to see Daniel as godfather.

According to the swedish press the woman is Madeleine's assistent. All Chris' family stayed at the hotel also during the wedding last year. Maybe that is because Madeleine and Chris doesn't live at the Palaces.

Madeleine and Chris had a party for the guests at m/s Victorina III last night. They stayed at the cruise for many hours. Victorina III is known to arrange exclusive cruises inside the Stockholm archipelago. Among the guests were the king, queen, Victoria, Daniel, Eva O'Neill, Chris' sisters with families, Gustaf Magnuson. At the photos are also princesses Margaretha and Désirée.
Expressen has also a video of the guests leaving the boat.

Lugnet före stormen Kungligt Nyheter Aftonbladet

Madeleine and Chris have managed to make this "small and familiar" christening quite a media circus compared to Estelle's christening. Because the christening was a the Royal Chapel then, the press couldn't get close to it on the rehearsals and Victoria and Daniel organized the dinner in the evening before at the Haga Palace, no press then either.

I am not sure it's fair to accuse Chris and Madde of making their child's christening a media circus. Those two seem very determined to maintain their privacy.

The fact is that they are a rather glamorous semi-Royal couple who are baptizing their child and celebrating their first wedding anniversary on the same date. It's hardly their fault that there is a lot of Press interest in them. They don't court the attention.

I think that Madeleine is more a celebrity than a royal. She is a royal when it suits her. And for instance, if they would have arranged yesterday's party at the Royal Palace, the press couldn't have had any photos of it. But it is their choice, of course. But now it seems to me that they are not at all determined to have their privacy. They are at the town every day for the press to follow them.
Just saying that at Estelle's christening there were heads of state and lots of foreign royals, but it was handled much more discreetly.

It was SVT's mistake that the press heard a part of the christening program yesterday, someone had forgot the loudspeaker on. It was soon noticed and put off.

Here is the link to the LIVE-coverage of the christening, it starts at 11.15 swedish time.

They haven't still published the guest list.

Chaplain to The King and Bishop Emeritus Lars-Göran Lönnermark and Pastor of the Royal Court Parish Michael Bjerkhagen arrived already, Lönnermark with crutches.

Obviously Carl Philip didn't attend at the cruise, he isn't at the photos. I guess that is because his second race in Gothenburg was delayed and ended about at 16.30. Probably there are some official things one must do after the race so he couldn't just leave the circuit right after his race was done. So he didn't get to Stockholm in time.
