Also, I'm a bit confused about her title. If she has the HRH, does that mean that she has to be raised in Sweden? I thought that Chris and Madeleine were planning on living in New York?

I'm a little surprised that they gave her the HRH and the duchy. I've noticed that many royal families are trying to downsize (look at Norway, for instance).

The Marshall of the realm Mr Svante Lindqvist just said at the press conference that it has been decided that Princess Leonore will be raised in Sweden from the age of 6 and she will have all her education in Sweden so apparently they have plans to move to Sweden

Yes it's very true! I haven't seen pics of Madeleine as a baby so I can't judge

They said that she will be baptized at the start of the summer at this church: Storkyrkan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

According to Expressen they plan to move Sweden when the little one starts school? Is that true?

It's required for Leo to live in Sweden and go to school, the announcer said 6 years in Sweden.

Off-topic, but the explanation I've heard is that an infant tends to look more like the father in the beginning so that the father will be more likely to recognize the child as his and take care of it.

I'm neutral on the name; I think it's better than Estelle, but that's about all I can say for it.

Aaaaahhhhh, what a wonderful sound with these names. Really, really beautiful!. I am sooo happy, that Lilian has been honored....
And (i have to admit), I am happy that it was not Alice, as this name sounds quite harsh.....
So in total I am superhappy about this great choice!

No, they said that she would be baptized at the Royal Chapel, like Estelle.

Ah, it is already "LEO"
Just some hours a name, and already a nickname

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.
I completely agree with you DOM. Princess Christiana and The Princess Royal's examples would have served Madeleine and Chris well. And the HRH and the duchy is quite too much. Bad call. Leonore is a nice name but there are already several floating around and it's not very Swedish or American. But then again I had a feeling that they would pick something different.

No Leonore will be baptized in this Church at the Royal Palace in Stockholm where her cousin Estelle was baptized and her parents were married :)

What is with the thing that they are trying to keep this child in the order of succession? This girl will not be Queen, Victoria will probably have more children and Carl-Phillip as well when he gets married, seriously, even Chris didn't want any title, I don't get it.

AND HRH??? seriously? I can pass a duchy or even the title of princess, but HRH? HH would be enough, that way she will have the same title as Estelle and their positions are so diferent. Soon they will be like Jordan and have thousands and thousands of Princes and Princesses. Absurd.

Leonore, another disappoinment. Lilian Maria, I quite like them. I like better Leonor than Leonore, but it's boring and so used already.
