SRF: Leonore is christened as Madeleine and Chris celebrate their first wedding anniversary (updated with official photos)

Princess Leonore

Princess Leonore, daughter of Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Chris O’Neill, was baptized this morning at the Drottningholm Palace chapel in Stockholm.  Leonore was pretty well behaved.  She was a bit fussy when they arrived, but calmed down and didn’t even cry when she was baptized (unlike her mother, Madeleine, who wailed).  Part of the baptism includes Leonore receiving the Order of the Seraphim—that’s the little blue sash and pin she received.  Leonore was born on February 20, 2014 at 10:41 EST in New York City.  Her baptism comes on her parent’s first wedding anniversary (more on that below).
