Royal Baby Christening! See All the Best Photos from Princess Adrienne of Sweden's Big Day
Happy royal christening day, Princess Adrienne!
Swedenâs newest royal, Adrienne Josephine Alice, Princess of Sweden and Duchess of Blekinge, was baptized in royal splendor at the Royal Chapel in the Drottningholm Palace, Stockholm, on Friday.
Proud parents Princess Madeleine and Chris OâNeill welcomed their baby girl in March, joining siblings, Princess Leonore, 4, and Prince Nicolas, 2. The christening date is extra special for the royal couple, as it also marks their fifth wedding anniversary. It is also the same day Leonore was baptized in 2014.
The entire royal family, including Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia and grandparents King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia, turned out for Adrienneâs big day. The little princessâs cousins also joined in on t he celebrations.
Princess Adrienne was baptized in the same gown worn by cousins Princess Estelle, Prince Oscar, Prince Alexander, Prince Gabriel, and siblings Princess Leonore and Prince Nicolas at their christenings. The water used at the christening will come from a spring on Ãland.
The Swedish royal court confirmed the six godparents Madeleine and Chris chose for their third child. The honored roles have gone to close friends of the couple and one of Chrisâ nieces. No members of the royal family were selected, however, Princess Victoria is godmother to Leonore, and Carl Philip is godfather to Nicolas.
Princess Adrienne, who is tenth in line to the Swedis h throne, is the newest addition to the Swedish royal family, which has experienced a baby boom recently. Madeleineâs siblings Princess Victoria and Prince Carl Philip have both welcomed young children into the family in the past few years.
For now, the royal family is settling into life as a family of five in their home in Stockholm, although they are based full-time in London. Madeleine traveled home to Stockholm last month so she could have the baby in Sweden.
