Princess Estelle has been baptized in the chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm. Royals from Scandinavia and the Netherlands, as well as politicians, diplomats, family and friends were among the guests who watched the ceremony performed by Archbishop Anders Wejryd.

Water from Öland was poured from the chapel's 17th century silver font onto the head of the three-month-old Princess who hardly uttered a sound.

Princess Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary is second in the line of succession as the first-born child of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.
