The Swedish Royal Court has released the official photos from the christening of Prince Nicolas. The images, which were posted on the royal family's official Facebook page, show the four-month-old prince surrounded by his family and loved ones in a series of lovely photographs in celebration of his special day.
One snapshot shows little Nicolas with his mother and father, Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Christopher O'Neill, along with his big sister Princess Leonore as they sit for a family photograph together following the service, which took place on Sunday 11 October in the Drottningholm Palace Chapel.
Another image shows the newest member of the royal family joined by his grandparents, King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia and Mrs. Eva O'Neill, while a third features Nicolas' aunts and uncles, including Crown Princess Victoria, who is herself expecting her second baby, and Prince Carl Philip – one of the little boy's godfathers.
Also, Princess Madeleine posted a family picture on her Facebook page. She made the statement: "We are so happy and thankful that we had such a lovely christening for Nicolas. Leonore had a lot of fun and Nicolas was a bit overwhelmed!"
