Regal and ready! Crown Princess Victoria and husband Prince Daniel stepped out with their beautiful family on Friday, May 27, for their infant son Prince Oscar‘s christening at the Swedish Royal Palace in Stockholm.
The little one took part in the Christian sacrament in the same chapel where Prince Oscar’s big sister, 4-year-old Princess Estelle, and many other Swedish royals have been baptized.
The service on Friday was conducted by archbishop Antje Jackelén, who was assisted by bishop Johan Dalman and chaplain Michael Bjerkhagen.
His Royal Highness Prince Oscar Carl Olof kept with royal tradition and dressed in a christening gown that was worn by his predecessors. The infant is third in line to the Swedish throne, and trails his mother, 38, and his big sister Estelle.
Estelle, meanwhile, appeared to be the spitting image of her royal mother on Friday, wearing a white dress and a miniature fascinator identical to Princess Victoria’s headpiece.
Prince Oscar, who was born on March 2, was surrounded by devoted family members including his grandparents King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. The baby boy’s godmother, Princess Victoria’s younger sister Princess Madeline, also witnessed the baptism and celebrated the occasion with her young daughter Princess Leonore.
Princess Victoria’s brother Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden were also in attendance for the ceremony, which they will soon be planning for their own son Prince Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil. Newborn Prince Alexander, who was welcomed on April 19, was not present for his cousin’s baptism.
Other royals to attend the baptism on Friday included Prince Oscar’s godfather, the Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway were also present for the special occasion.
