With his head tucked safely under mummy’s chin, Prince Oscar Carl Olof of Sweden posed for his second official photo.
The Swedish Royal Palace released a new image of Oscar and his mother, Crown Princess Victoria. The little prince, born March 2nd, is Victoria’s second child with husband, Prince Daniel. He has an older sister, Estelle, who will one day rule the country.
“We would like to convey our sincere gratitude for all the kind greetings and congratulations we have received in connection with Princess Estelle’s birthday and the birth of Prince Oscar,” Victoria and Daniel wrote on the palace’s site.
“We genuinely appreciate your kindness and that so many of you share our happiness.”
It was a welcome break from the March 21st tragedy in Brussels, where terrorists set off two bombs in the city’s airport, then another in a subway station.
Royal families from all over the world sent their condolences to the Belgians, including Victoria’s father, King Carl XVI Gustaf.
“It is with dismay that my family and I have learned of the terrible events in Brussels,” His Majesty’s statement read on Twitter.
“In this trying moment, we all stand united against this merciless terrorism, our thoughts go to those affected and their families.”
The royal family now awaits the birth of Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sophia’s child, who is due next month.
