Prince Oscar of Sweden was christened at the Royal chapel in Drottington Palace on Friday. The two-month-old prince was awake during the beginning of the ceremony but later slept off in his mother’s arms. The baby prince looked adorable in the christening gown that has been earlier worn by his mom, sister, aunt, uncle and cousins.
The Swedish royal family turned out in full force for the christening of Oscar. Crown Princess Victoria looked stunning in a white broderie anglaise dress. All eyes were on the proud mother whose Self Portrait panelled midi dress featured short sleeves, high neck, T-shape bodice, full-sculpted skirt, a transparent lace trim. The dress was cinched in at the waist with a grosgrain ribbon that showed off the 38-year-old’s tiny waist.
The mom-of-two accessorized with pearl drop earrings, a brooch with a blue ribbon, a gift from Princess Lilian and Prince Bertil, King Carl XVI Gustaf’s late aunt and uncle. Victoria wore subtle make-up with a hint of eyeliner and nude lipstick. Her brunette tresses were swept sideways and tied into a low bun on the side. She also wore a netted white fascinator to match her dress and added height to her frame in a pair of white high heel pumps.
Prince Daniel, 42, looked dapper in a traditional morning suit as he walked with the couple’s daughter Princess Estelle. The four-year-old princess stole the show at her baby brothers christening in an all-white look just like her stylish mom. Estelle wore a self-printed white dress, matching tights and shoes.
She also wore a white fascinator while her blonde hair was kept in a side part and tied into a ponytail. Estelle carried a small bag that matched perfectly with her dress. She accessorized with a pearl necklace.
Carl Gustaf and his wife Queen Silvia were also there to bless their grandson. Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia also attended leaving their one-month-old son behind. Sofia looked radiant in a powder blue Antonio Berardi cape-back dress. The dress featured an asymmetric hemline, high neck and a cape overlay that drapes asymmetrically down the back.
The 31-year-old princess complemented her dress with natural make-up and nude accessories. Sofia accessorized with small pearl drop earrings, brooch and her engagement ring. She wore nude high heels, carried a matching box clutch and wore nude fascinator.
Her brunette tresses were left loose in a center part with a portion of hair from both the sides pulled back loosely and fastened with a clip. Her husband Carl Philip looked handsome in full military regalia. Meanwhile, Madeleine also looked stunning in a pastel-colored dress as she carried her daughter Leonore.
The 33-year-old royal’s dress featured round neck, short sleeves that featured a fitted and flared detail. She accessorized with diamond drop earrings, bracelet, and a brooch. Her blonde hair was swept up into a messy up ‘do’. Leonore looked adorable in a blue and white frock, white bow, cute shoes and lacy socks.
Her husband Chris O’Neill also wore a morning suit and carried their son Nicolas. The tot was dressed in a blue and white shirt and shorts combination. Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway as well as Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark also attended. Mette-Marit, Frederik, Madeleine, Daniel’s friend Hans Astrom and Oscar Magnuson, a long-time friend of Carl Gustaf are the godparents of the baby prince.
