Prince Alexander of Sweden has starred in new portraits released by the Royal Palace on Friday. The palace released five portraits of the baby prince with his parents Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia. The pictures were released to celebrate Carl Philip’s 37th birthday on Friday, and to thank fans for their good wishes.
The first picture shows the baby prince swaddled in a white blanket, while being fast asleep on his dad’s arms. His mom, Sofia, 31, color coordinates with her son and looks stylish in a white dress. Her dress features high-neck and short sleeves.
She accessorizes with a delicate bracelet and her engagement ring. Her long brunette tresses are kept in a center part and styled in loose waves. The princess wears a slick of pink lip gloss and completes her look with white high heels.
Meanwhile, his dad looks dapper in a gray suit that he pairs with a pale blue shirt and matching pocket square. He completes his look with a pair of black lace-up shoes. The royal couple sit on a couch at the family’s home in Drottningholm Palace in Stockholm.
The antique gold couch features pink upholstery and embroidered cushions. Gray curtains and drapes are seen in the background on the windows. Besides, there are two candle stands and vases perched on top of the window sills. The couple introduces their cute pet pooch, who sits on the floor near their feet.
In another picture, Sofia looks happy and content as she cradles her son in her arms and beams down at him, while her husband Carl Philip rests an affectionate hand on his baby’s head. A third picture shows the couple posing in the grounds of their palace, with their adorable pet dog completing the family picture. Besides, they also pose for individual portraits with their son in black and white shots.
A particularly adorable photo shows the handsome prince cuddling his sleeping son to his chest. “We would in this way like to convey our sincere gratitude for all the congratulations we received in connection with our son, Prince Alexander's, birth. We genuinely appreciate your kindness and considerations,” read a message from Carl Philip and Sofia on their Facebook page.
Prince Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil, Duke of Sodermanland, was born in Stockholm on April 19, and weighed about seven pounds and nine ounces.
