Why on earth they release the photo of this baby with the king and the queen, since there hasn't been released a similar one of their first grandchild, the heir to the throne?

And the name: Leonore, not good. Maria, very nice. Lilian, I would have hoped Madeleine wouldn't have used it. I'm disappointed that the girl got a HRH and a duchy. Soon their will be about 10 royal HRH-babies at the swedish royal family.

I think she looks like Chris and not Madeleine!

There have been Swedish queens with the name Eleonora. They went with the French Leonore.

Very disappointed with the name Leonor. There's other Leonor/Leonore around and I think it's too much. You have to understand that in Brazil it's not a common name and even if it was used in the past, the young generations don't think to name the babies as Leonor. And I also think it doesn't sound that good in Portuguese.

Why a title for the baby when Chris said no?

True. In my entire life, I met only one brazilian Leonor, and her father was a portuguese.

You know, we have a Princess Eleonora on our Imperial Family, she's married to the Prince of Ligne and lives in Belgium. I think she was named after one of her maternal aunts, from the Bavarian Royal Family.

I love the names, especially Leonore :) So beautiful.

Quite funny that they will have the press conference with the marshall of the realm AFTER the King has revealed the names and titles :-D

I agree, Leonore, not a good choice. The photo with the queen and king (who looks as if he wanted to be someplace else), whats the point? No picture with the parents?
The biggest joke is the HRH, I guess it will backfire soon since CP is likely to be treated the same way, plus Madde & Chris should be prepared for the press following their HRH offspring everywhere they go.

Because we have a gender equal succession in Sweden wich means titles can be passed through female lines too.

So the girl got all possible titles. What do you think that means? Maybe Chris plans to resign from working in the future and become prince?

The french form of the name is Eléonore

She is an absolute cutie and I love her names but I think she shouldn't have gotten a "HRH". A "HH" would have sufficed
