Birgitta: 9 1/4 yrs
Désirée: 8 yrs
Christina: 2 3/4 yrs
Developmentally speaking, it would have been much easier for Christina to play with him anyway than with her substantially-older sisters, so...you are getting a lot of cake and flowers shoved in your face, CG.
It's also good that they had each other in their weird and sad childhood (their older sisters were dealing with it from a significantly different angle).
And it's probably not a coincidence that Silvia is about Christina's age — it's obviously how he felt best and safest.
