Those were my thoughts as well. I'm surprised that Birgitta is not comming. I remember her mentioning recently that she was going to be there for Leonore's christening. The whole list is rather underwhelming, especially with so many extended family members missing.

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.
Why do you say "semi-royal couple" ? Isn't Madeleine a daughter of the king, a princess of Sweden (hence HRH), and 4th in line to the throne ?

Sofia at the Chapel. Obviously poor Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha has to sit beside her at the Chapel.

Well, we have a different opinion of a "lovely lady". The way she is posing and flirting with the press, isn't my perception of a lovely lady. She has been Carl Philip's girlfriend for four and a half years and she still can't act disreetly. She isn't a member of the royal family and she shouldn't wave all over like she is one.

The prayer which Chris read was very similar which Victoria read at Estelle's christening.

They all went for lacey dresses, Silvia in light blue, the princesses in pink. In fact, Victoria & Madde's dresses look very similar. We need some close-ups to spot any differences.

Sofia posed, smiled and waved as if she went to a beach party. She needs to be more serious and learn the etiquette, if she wishes to stick around.

Estelle is a very happy child, so nice to see that!
Victoria's headpiece looks awful.

Victoria looks classic, very beautiful. She had great earrings. Madeleine looks very motherly and happy, but her dress is too short for a church ceremony, like Sofia's and Alice Bamford's. I'm oldfashioned in that sense.

It was good thinking giving Estelle a book to look at just in case. Madeleine looks very happy and I thought Silvias dress complemented her very much. It was nice that Leonor was awake for a couple of moments at the christening.

I find it a very elegant ceremony so far. The pink roses decoration is lovely for a girl's christening!
