I think Oscar is the odd baby out, of the five grandkids he is the only one anyone guessed his first name.

I was thinking that, too. Or perhaps his younger brother, Prince Alexander of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

There is a Hubertus in the immediate family as well. Princess Birgitta's son Prince Hubertus of Hohenzollern, Prince Carl Philip's cousin. I would think he would be a more likely choice.

That's right, I'd completely forgotten about him. And Princess Birgitta is CP's own godmother, so I think Hubertus of Hohenzollern sounds like a good suggestion. But I do believe the Swedes are fairly close to the Saxe-Coburg and Gothas, too.

Archduchess Zelia, your mentioning of the Swedish Royal Family does remind one that Princess Sibylla, Duchess of Västerbotten was originally from Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. With the new Swedish royal children born, they are fourth generation (great-grandchildren of Sibylla). That means many happy years of association.

Yes. Andreas, the current Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (father of Hubertus) is Madeleine's godfather. Andreas' father was Princess Sibylla's youngest brother, making Andreas and Carl Gustaf first cousins. Andreas' father was the youngest of 3 sons but Leopold gave up his place in succession by unequal marriage, and Hubertus died in WWII.

The SCG family is often seen at Swedish events. Victoria serves as godmother to Prince Hubterus' daughter. He is a good candidate to either new prince.

Countess Bettina Bernadotte af Wisborg could also be chosen as a godparent. Carl Philip is the godfather of hers and Philipp Haug's son Emil.

Looking at their wedding for clues, possible godparents:

Patrick Sommerlath: his twins served as flower girls. CP is godfather to one, Maddie to the other. Maddie named him for Leo.

Jan-Ake: CP's best man may be a good choice for a friend for godfather

Tiara Larsson, one of the flowergirls, is Sofia's goddaughter. Perhaps her mother will be chosen by Sofia.

There are alot of speculation going on here in Sweden right now that the christening of Prince Alexander will take place at Öland during July or early August. Time will tell if it's true but i do belive Alexander will be christened around that time.

About godparents i guess at

H.R.H Prince Daniel

Mr Jan-Åke Hansson

Mrs Lina Hellkvist Frejd

A female friend of Sofia

Oland is the place where water for the royal baptisms is drawn. Was any royal christened there?

Yes since the baptism of Crown Princess Victoria. Before that the water was officially taken from Jordan (in reality from The Royal Palace in Stockholm).

No christenings so far at Öland as far as i know atleast. The King was confirmed in Borgholm Church and Crown Princess Victoria in Räpplinge Church.
Princess Christina was confirmed in Gärdslösa Church where her sister Princess Margareta and John Ambler later married.

Would love to see Daniel named as godfather - he and CP seem close as brother-in-laws.

Dan would be nice but think they will follow the girls' route and do siblings not the spouses.


I still think 2 sisters, 2 friends, and likely a cousin. If six, then maybe a foreign royal.


If a cousin I am think Birgitta's son Hubertus. I think the middle name is a nod to his godfather (though it could simply be for the king). Birgitta is CP's godmother so fitting. Madeleine used the kids of 2 of her godparents for her children. Patrick (Walter was Madeleine's) was for Leonor, and Gustaf (Christina was Madeleine's) for Nicolas. CP, Victoria, Estelle and now Oscar all share a name with a godparent.


Could also be for a foreign royal. Possible Prince Hubertus of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha could be chosen if they do use a foreign royal.

The only two that I can think of are:
CP Victoria - Carl Philip's sister
Lina Frejd - Sofia's sister

With the christening of Prince Oscar behind us we can now begin to look forward to the christening of Prince Alexander. As they haven't announced the date and location by now, i think it will be by the end of August and in Stockholm (Carl Philip and Madeleine was baptized on August 31).
Or maybe in Södermanland, possibly Flen Church where the former Duke of Södermanland Prince Wilhelm's funeral and burial took place. It's close to Stenhammar Castle where Prince Wilhelm lived where Prince Alexander will likely live a lot and also inherite the disposal rights.

I think it's possible that Prince Daniel may be choosen as a godparent. He and Carl Philip is indeed very close. I can see Daniel and Madeleine being choosen for Alexander and Victoria and maybe Chris being choosen for a possible little brother/sister.

I think that the christening of Prince Alexander will take place at the end of the summer-holidays, so more or less in September, when everyone will be back from holidays.
Or maybe even in October like for Prince Nicolas

I would think that October would be too late, as Alexander will be 6 months and, if I'm not mistaken, swedish royals usually have their children baptized earlier. Maybe end of July oir August is more on the cards...

.... and the ancient Baptizing dress could be too small by then. So I am also opting for July....

The only problem could be that a lot of potential guests are on their summer-holidays.
I think that the gown is still big enough for a six months old baby

It was rather large on Prince Oscar
