I can remember Eugenie of York being the last straw for the delicate BRF christening gown that was made for Queen Victoria's first child. Eugenie wasn't christened for months as her father was away at sea. A replica had to be made for the next Royal baby. The bigger and chubbier the baby the more risk of potential damage to fragile little garments, I guess.

And the guest list is published:
Gäster.

Anyone who has something to complain about this, is in my eyes specifically looking for things to nitpick on.
This list should make for a fairly intimate setting.

And, with this event, the day has come for me to (finally) close the book on the Swedish Royal Family and CP and Sofia and their son in particular.
I've had a ride since June 27, 2014, experienced a lot, but it's enough for me.

I've done my time and say goodbye. For the rest of the people here:
good luck (or not, depending how you look at it) with following them and who knows what insights you may gather.

So long,
Skippy

The guest are arriving! On who I think look very elegant is the leader of the Christian Democrats (Kristdemokraterna), Ebba Bush Thor. And yes, she's pregnant :)

BTW, has the guest list been published yet ?
The guest list: no major foreign royals and Sofia's mentor Barbro. Are any of her friends from her reality show days on the list?

Alexander's coat of arms: it looks similar to CP's. Sofia has been in the SRF for 15 months and she still doesn't have her own C of A.

As for the succession issue: the king has planned a 2nd salute (not done before) and a nod to CP. I don't think he has let it go.

Ebba Bush Thor is beautiful!

I had no intention to watch this christening - until now

But I must confess, the real reason for me to watch is my curiousity about Leonore and her famous ideas how to entertain to whole crowd

So sweet see all little kiddos. Oscar is so cute and copy of his sister. Leonore wild as always. Nicolas is calm. Alexander a chubby big baby and very calm. Whoa, in one year five grandchildren for CG and Silvia. Victoria looks lovely in pink dress, and I love Estelle wears similar colour. Sweet christening.

Victoria (and "twin" Estelle) is looking phantastic in Raspberry, Sofia repeated CP Victorias "mother of the infant in white" theme - but she´s looking superb, and Madeleine is looking like an old matronly teacher

Huh, not Madeleine's best choice.

It's a military ship that had stopped a short bit from the Drottningholm Palce. It fired 21 Gun salute at exactly the same time as they did from Skeppsholmen in Central Stockholm where they usually do it. Don't know if it was a personal gift to Carl Philip and his family or just to entertain the guests and the on lookers. Could have been both.

I don't think that was done during Leonore and Nicolas christenings (correct me if i'm wrong).

It was not neccessary with a ship at Estelle and Oscar's christenings as they were held in Stockholm and the salute batteri at Skeppsholmen is just below the palace.

Could the gun salute have been a nod to Carl Philips naval career?
