Prince Oscar and the Swedish Royal Family star in new Christening portraits

Like any royal christening, Prince Oscar's special day on May 27 was marked with a portrait session for the Swedish Royal Family, and they've now released the series of photos on the monarchy's official site. The photos show the young Prince surrounded by friends and family.

In one portrait, Crown Princess Victoria holds on tightly to her young son as she poses alongside her husband, Prince Daniel and their daughter Princess Estelle. The mom of two looked lovely on the day of the christening, wearing a white lace dress, white pumps and a matching lace fascinator.

Oscar's older sister, 4-year-old Estelle, was also picture-perfect in her white lace dress. The little girl smiled sweetly for the camera as she proudly perched on her father's lap.


In another photo, the young boy is surrounded by his family and newly appointed godparents. Prior to the christening Victoria and Daniel announced who they had chosen to take up the coveted positions. In a statement released by the royal family, the couple revealed that they had selected royals Princess Madeleine, Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark to act as the boy's godparents.

The royal duo also called on Hans Astrom and Oscar Magnuson, both from Sweden, to help guide and protect their son. Hans is an insurance employee and a good friend of Daniel's, while Oscar is a long-time friend of the royals and King Carl XVI Gustaf.


On the day, Prince Oscar was very well behaved and slept sweetly in his mother's arm for most of the ceremony. During the service the young boy was baptized with water that came from a special spring on the island on Öland, over a silver font that dates from the early 18th century.
