Royal baby christening! Sweden’s Royal Family celebrate Prince Julian’s big day

694

SWEDISH ROYALS came together to celebrate Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sophia’s third baby, Prince Julian’s, christening on Saturday.

The ceremony for the four-month-old baby took place at ​​Drottningholm Palace’s church, not far from Stockholm. The royal couple’s two older children – Prince Alexander, five, and Prince Gabriel, three, also attended the christening.

The entire family gathered at the church, including Carl Philip’s sisters – Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine.

The young prince’s grandparents, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, were also among the guests.

Prince Julian donned a christening gown that his father wore to his own christening in 1979.

The garment dates back to Prince Gustaf Adolf’s baptism in 1906, making it a sentimental Royal Family heirloom.

Babies in the Swedish Royal Family have been wearing the gown ever since.

Prince Julian is King Carl XVI Gustaf’s first grandchild who was born without the HRH style, following a change to the royal house in 2019.

The King changed the rules so that Carl Philip and Sofia’s children, as well as Princess Madeleine children would not have the Royal Highness style.

Carl Philip is fourth in line to the throne, following his older sister Crown Princess Victoria.

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sophia have been married for six years now.

However, prior to marrying into the Royal Family, Sophia was a model and reality TV contestant.

As a Royal, she founded and is actively involved in the non-profit organisation Project Playground, offering support for vulnerable children outside Cape Town in South Africa.

During the Covid pandemic, she volunteered at Sophiahemmet hospital.
