Prince Nicolas was also baptised at the Royal Chapel at Drottningholm Palace 2 years ago,nice to see a change of venue from the Stockholm Palace chapel.

Princess Leonore, prince Nicolas and prince Alexander have been baptised at the Royal Chapel at Drottningholm Palace. Only princess Estelle and prince Oscar were baptised the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace.

I like that the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace seems to have been reserved for the children of the future queen.

Additionally, the officiating clergy at the christening has been made public: Archbishop emeritus Anders Wejryd, Bishop and Chief Court Chaplain Dr. Johan Dalman and Court Chaplain and Rector of the Royal Court Parish Michael Bjerkhagen.

In this picture, Prince Gabriel looks just like his brother Prince Alexander.

Looks like they copy-pasted from Alexander's page as it states that prince Alexander will wear the same gown as (his cousins and brother).

Any idea why it is the emeritus archbishop and not the current one who will be officiating the christening?

No idea actually. I guess the current Archbishop has obligations elsewhere that day.

Human error, I think they just made a mistake; they meant Prince Gabriel.
At the time of Prince Alexander's christening, he did not have a brother so that word "brother" would not have appeared on his page.

They didn't literally say 'cousins and brother' (that is why I put it between brackets) instead they mentioned all the names, so it was pretty easy to add 'prince Alexander' at the end of the list, while forgetting to change the name of the prince that is to be christened...

The archbishop is away in the United States at the time of the christening.

Margareta Thorgren told to Expressen, that because Gabriel's christening is in the winter, Carl Philip, Sofia, their children, the godparents and the guests will walk a shorter way from the Royal Chapel in Drottningholm to Drottningholm Palace.
At the christenings of Leonore, Nicolas and Alexander they have walked a longer way and the people have had more possibilities to see the royals and their guests.
Expressen shows the previous way and the shorter way which is used now.

Having visited Drottningholm Palace for the first time myself this summer, I can envisage this new route from the chapel makes sense in winter, especially if there is a wind blowing.
