This long weekend is all Prince Oscar’s Christening all the time. Because if the open post, the ceremony review, and the fashion review weren’t enough, it’s time for official photos! The Swedish royal court released five official photos from Prince Oscar’s Christening today, and Princess Madeleine posted photos from the same photoshoot to her Facebook page.
The first photo features the Crown Princess Family: Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Princess Estelle, and Prince Oscar.
I hate to do this, but in fairness I must: Why is Victoria not getting criticized for wearing white to her child’s baptism the way Kate did?
The next photo features the Crown Princess Family with Oscar’s godparents: Oscar Magnuson, Princess Madeleine, Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, and Hans Astrom.
The third photo features the Crown Princess Family with Victoria and Daniel’s siblings: Madeline, Prince Carl Philip, and Anna Westling Söderström.
The fourth photo is with Oscar’s grandparents: King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Ewa Westling, and Olle Westling. I love that the grandmothers color-coordinated.
The final photo released by the Royal Court is of the King with Victoria, Estelle, and Oscar. This is my favorite photo because it is the one with the biggest smiles from both Victoria and Estelle, and Oscar’s Surprise Face is back. It’s just too bad that Carl Gustaf couldn’t crack a smile.
These final three photos were not released by the Royal Court, but they were taken during the same photoshoot. Maddie posted these three photos to her Facebook page with the caption: “My sister and I are blessed as mothers of these two sweet little girls who adore each other!”
Estelle and Leonore have been pretty inseparable since Leonore was born. It’s quite adorable how close they are. I wonder if Estelle will be this close to Oscar.
