The name announcement will be an official occasion where the Riksmarskalk (not sure what the proper English title is) will hold a press conference and reveal the princess name, just like with Estelle. Since the ing and queen are in NY at the moment an announcement is not likely to be made until the end of the week (as they have to be back in Sweden for that, in order for the king to reveal the name(s) and titles to the riksmarskalk and the cabinet and so on).

By the way, dos anyone know when the name will be revealed?
Hello, Marty91charmed: I don't know if the footprints are done in other countries. But it has been done in the US for many years. They are so sweet. 😊

Thank you for your injection of a little common sense into this topic. We can't compare Madeliene to Victoria, but we can compare her to the other junior royals you mentioned above.
I think it is because she is pretty, sorry to say.

Smaller than average US baby which is 7.5lbs, and considering the King and Queen planned to be there around the birth , she was probably about a week earlier than her due date which cuts down the weight but of course still full term and thankfully all are healthy!

Finally I have seen the video of the press conference. Very impressed how Chris dealt with the press. That's a very happy father for sure. And the little footprint on his forearm is so cute! Can't wait for the official name announcement. As Chris said: I wish I could (tell you the name)! And I would ! But I am not allowed to. 😊

It's not done in the UK. We only ever do hand and footprints for stillbirths.

I don't understand why people say the baby is small. 3 kilos is a normal weight. My niece was bor with 3,05 kilos and she was completely healthy. And been born one week before the expected date is not a big deal. The baby's weight wouldn't change that much in one week.
And regarding the name, can't believe we have to wait for days to know it!

Exactly Cristine. Any baby over 2.5kg is considered a normal birth weight. Anything under 2.5kg is considered a low birth weight.

The baby was not "early" either, as she was due in March and anything past 37 weeks gestation is considered full term.

Not yet, we have to wait until King Carl Gustaf's cabinet meeting.

I'm from the UK and my mother still has an ink print of my newborn footprint/hand. Although I agree, it's generally not that "big" over here.

I was telling my mother about Madeleine and Chris's daughter yesterday, and we were discussing what surname she will have. My mother thinks that she will be an O'Neill, whereas I think that she will be a Bernadotte, because Princess Estelle is a Bernadotte and not a Westling. But then again, Daniel has a title, so I'm still not sure. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Maybe she'll be a Bernadotte O'Neill or an O'Neill Bernadotte.

It will be interesting to see which surname she gets, I quite like the idea of a "double barrelled" one. It's a bit like what HM and Prince Philip did with their surnames and combining them into Mountbatten-Windsor.

It's no longer done anymore, certainly not in the maternity units I have worked in. It's only done for stillbirths now.

IMO it could go either way!
I'm leaning towards Bernadotte O'Neill, but I won't bet on it .

Chris O'Neill is Mr. Charm! And speaks very well with an accent which is international, sort of British but not extremely so.
