I thought Chris did a wonderfull job there - all smiles and kind words. I just didn't like he refers to his wife as 'princess Madeleine' but that's protocol I guess.

Very sweet picture on facebook with the footprint. I assume this was taken last night, since he is wearing a different shirt.

Did anyone get the question when he said "we both did"? Was the question if he cried?

The comparison with Pss Estelle doesn't really work. Estelle will one day be Queen of Sweden, this girl most likely will not. Also, the Swedish press will have little trouble to go to the Karolinska hospital in Stockholm, but may need more time to travel to New York.
Aftonbladet and Expressen have reporters in New York, their reporters were outside the hospital right after the news of the birth had been told out.

Not only do Estelle and this baby have almost the same birthdays, but if you factor in Swedish local time as time of birth - they were born virtually the same time of day.

Tbh, if Chris hadnt talked much, people would have found him rude. It's cute the way he was proud and it was a warm and adorable conference.

Also, there have been many princesses born in NY over the years. Many of the children/grandchildren of royals who have been thrown out of their countries live and work in NY. We don't hear about them either, except in the gossip pages of the NY tabloids or Vogue, etc.
But this princess is special. She has an american father and the mother is from a reigning monarchy. So I thought that maybe there would be more interest.

As much as I love your very informative posts LadyFinn, but I really don't understand your repeating comparisons between Madeleine/Christopher and Victoria/Daniel over and over again.

After this truly emotional press conference, all you have to say is, that Christopher looked untidy also he had much more time to prepare himself than Daniel? Well, Christopher is not a Prince and he's not the husband of the future queen of Sweden. He's a normal man, who just became father. for him there are much more important things than to look smart and tidy and to do it much better than Daniel.

Acutally to clarify there is a difference--a Native American is someone whi is a member of any of the first groups of people living in North America or South America;

A native American is someone born in the US. So yes, you were incorrect when you capitalized the word native.

Now when there are so many days before the cabinet meeting, the press can speculate about almost everything with every possible expert they can dig out.

I'm sorry if I sound harsh for Madeleine and Chris. But I believe that when you have privileges, you also have responsibilities. And at the moment it feels like Madeleine and Chris want to have the cake and eat it. I'm hoping that in the future Madeleine will increase her attendance in royal duties a lot.

Sounds like a very happy and proud father and it's good to know that the mother and baby are doing very well.

Thanks for the video link. Chris did a great job and certainly seems over the moon. He also looked tired which is understandable as I doubt he has had any sleep since the birth at least. He may not even have left the hospital. So I would certainly give him a pass on not looking formal. He looked just like he should--a proud pop who couldn't wait to get back to his girls.

Nothing is quite like a proud father. Chris would talk about that baby girl for the whole day if you allowed him to. He is clearly happy and proud, it's nice seeing him like this.

He looks tired because he has a newborn baby, most likely did most of the work while mother rested. When I did my clinicals in obstetrics, we would let the fathers watch over the baby while mother got some much deserved rest. Even William said the midwives wanted him to do the nappy while Catherine rested. It's only fair, mother pushes, father does first night with baby

So due to the time difference; in Sweden, it would have been the 21st February.
