Congrats to them!

Little bit sad that a maybe tradition of girls first, a boy second is broken.

Very happy that the new baby arrived safely and healthy and congrats to all the family

For a name, my guess would be that "Carl" is somewhere in the mix (but i'm usually wrong)

This is not a thing to wish, you can't purchase a gender. But maybe the second child will be a girl. Then we have another tradition: First gender of the born royal, then gender of the married "royal".

Congratulations to the happy parents and a little boy. I expected him being a girl, well, it doesn't matter as the baby is healthy. Now we are waiting for names and duchy.

I think she was buying girl clothes for a friend who had recently had a baby girl.

Which is what a lot of people thought, as it said the pink items were gift wrapped. You wouldn't have that done for your own baby.

The Te Deum won't be held until friday. I assume it's because they want to wait so that the queen (and perhaps Madeleine) will have time to get home to Sweden.

We will most likely have his name and title tomorrow (wednesday). That's announced at a konselj (don't know the english word for that - perhaps Cabinet meeting?), but it's always been just the king who participated in that, not the queen.

very exciting news, i can't wait to hear the chosen name.

i guess carl or gustav will honor the king and erik or oscar will be in the names (for sofia's dad).

funnily enough, sofia herself was born in Danderyd, so i wonder if that's the reason they chose this particular hospital.

madeleine hasn't yet commented on her facebook, but she will surely do so soon :)

Interesting detail: The king was supposed to visit Halmstad on friday, but now that trip will be cancelled due to the Te Deum. If I'm not mistaken, the last attempt to visit Halmstad was also cancelled due to a Te Deum (for prince Oscar). It's like it's not meant to be...

Here's the news on the konselj /cabinet meeting. It won't be held until thursday. So we have to wait one more day...

It seems unlikely they would use her father's middle name instead of first, certainly even more after the birth of Prince Oscar. Carl may have been used for Oscar but as an honor to both the baby's daddy and grandfather, I don't think they would avoid using it.

It seems very likely they chose the hospital as it was where Sofia was born.

I am surprised the name wont be announced till Thursday. I thought the cabinet meeting was normally held the day after, unless a weekend/holiday

That was a surprise. I was pretty sure it would be a girl, but what matters is that it is a healthy baby.

Congratulations to the couple. Three little boy cousins quite close in age, if you include Madeleine's son Nicholas. Oscar and this new baby will be able to play together all the time!
