Friday the 27th of May marked a particularly joyous occasion for the Swedish royal family.

The Christening of sweet little Oscar Carl Olof, held in the royal chapel of Stockholm, brought together the whole family, making the already special day a royal affair to remember.

Of course, the pint-sized Prince was the little man of the moment as he tried to stay awake cradled by his mother, Crown Princess Victoria.

They were joined by the new mum’s husband, Prince Daniel, and their first daughter Princess Estelle, who celebrated her fourth birthday earlier this year.

As the family arrived, including our favourite Australian royal Princess Mary and her husband Prince Frederik – who was given the honour of godfather – little Oscar nodded off wearing the traditional christening gown that his sister, mother and other family members have worn before him.

The 38-year-old mother-of-two went matchy-matchy with her new bub in her own white lace dress.

Princess Mary rocked a monochrome frock and statement hat to wish the little one well.

Too sweet! Little Estelle was her mother’s mini-me, also in a white gown with white fascinator pinned to her blonde locks.

Handsome Prince Carl Phillip of Sweden was accompanied by his wife Princess Sofia, but their newborn son Prince Alexander stayed home.

The proud parents stood with their little one surrounded by family, flanked by Godparents Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Prince Frederik, who gave readings at the ceremony.

A happy little family!

Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustaf of Sweden were overjoyed to spend the day honouring the new arrival.

Like mother, like daughter! Princess Leonore looks more like her mum Princess Madeleine every day.

Melting! Princess Leonore, two, daughter of Princess Madeleine, and Princess Estelle, four, daughter of Crown Princess Victoria already seem to be the best of friends!
