Every time a Swedish royal gives birth, I eagerly await the blessed child’s christening, as it’s chock full of footage featuring Princess Leonore doing whatever TF she wants.

At her brother, Nicholas’ christening in October, Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill’s firstborn danced along to the rhythm of a beautiful, christening-appropriate musical arrangement, binky in mouth.

Today, Leonore and Nicholas’ cousin, Prince Oscar was christened in the royal chapel.

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel welcomed Oscar on March 2nd; he is their second child and first son.

His godparents –  HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, HRH Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, Princess Madeleine, Mr. Oscar Magnuson (son of Princess Christina of Sweden and Victoria’s cousin) and Mr Hans Astrom (Prince Daniel’s cousin) – were all present for the ceremony, as were members of the royal family, and Prince Daniel’s parents.

Sofia could have easily stayed home with her newborn son, but instead she was a trooper and joined her family for a Te Deum thanksgiving service in the Royal Chapel for her father-in-law, King Carl XVI Gustaf’s 70th birthday yesterday.
