Ah so that's for little Alexander? But if Alexander gets a chair, wouldn't Oscar get one too? Interesting.

Anyway we'll know in a few minutes.

No Leonore and Nicholas today - I think that's the safest option for Madeleine, so I totally understand that. And Alexander has certainly grown up fast!

The sprinkling of the water just took place. Gabriel began crying as soon as he left his mother's arms.

It's a traditional folk dress, but it's from Älvdalen.

What a beautiful family, I love that Sofia wore a traditional dress to represent the duchy that is going to be her son's. What a very smart lady she is indeed. And I love the traditional outfit also, very festive and pretty.

Victoria looked gorgeous in that fabulous red suit, how becoming on her, the fit, the tailoring, the color, the style, just perfect on her. And Estelle is adorable......and ready for fun it seems, a beautiful child.

Oscar looks so like his grandfather the king.......oh does he ever, even the grumpy face ..

Carl Philip looks so much better without all that grease in his hair, really now a good looking man........and he has a really cute family now, one look of his is like......do not mess with my family I read on his face....

In all a nice ceremony for the newest member for the royal family.

Congrats to all of the Swedish Royal Family on this day!! Always fantastic to see another member of the family christened. Sofia looked radiant in her traditional dress. Since Alexander's duchy is tied to his father's side, then it is so nice that Gabriel's duchy is linked to his mother. Well done. Everyone looked so happy. Victoria and family looked absolutely gorgeous and Madeline looked serene and happy. Missed seeing her children but I am sure that it was nice for her to be able to focus on the ceremony. Lovely day!!!

Margareta Thorgren told to Svensk Damtidning that Leonore and Nicolas didn't attend because the family has been in USA and the children are suffering from jet lag.

I just love how we get to see the Swedish royals interacting as a family...playing with nieces and nephews, doting on grandchildren...I realize that each royal family does things their own way but it's so refreshing to get those glimpses of a family being a family rather than always being protocol and duty focused. Always such lovely shots of the three siblings with each other's children, the king and queen with grandchildren on their knees. What a lovely day for the family!

And now Margareta Thorgen told to Svensk Damtidning that Leonore and Nicolas are in London and Madeleine and Chris are flying back home this evening. Madeleine and Chrish came just to the christening and it would have been tough for the children to fly to Sweden and back. They were in USA some weeks ago and the children are still feeling jet lag. Madeleine, Chris and the children come back to Sweden for the Nobel festivities.

In the days of King Gustaf VI Adolf (Carl Gustaf's grandfather) and King Gustaf V (CG's great-grandfather), the Swedish royal family was actually considered pretty "stiff" and the Swedish royal court was probably the most formal court in Scandinavia. The latter is still true today to some extent, but I suspect that Queen Silvia in particular added a "Brazilian touch" to the family that had a big influence on her children. In addition, the marriages of King Carl Gustaf's children to commoners, especially in the case of Victoria and Carl Philip, also added a sense of "normality" to the family IMHO.
