    Everyone looks wonderful here - P. Madeleine and her girls in shades of blue, CP Victoria and her daughter in pinks, and the Queen in soft aqua. The only thing I don’t like is the scarf/bow headpiece on P. Sofia. It doesn’t flatter her, nor does it complement her lovely dress. (V.M.)

    Splendid dress and stunning bow for Princess Sofia! Not a fan of Princess Victoria's flower print though. But love that little Adrienne apparently had some important information to impart to her sister! And of course, Oscar's non-smile, always a winner. Lovely extended family !

    Beautiful christening.
    Sofias Etro dress looks beautiful. Dont like her headpiece and hairstyle very much but one of her best looks neverless.
    Madeleine looks dreamy and breathtakingly beautiful. Hair, hairpiece, dress all perfect together. Madeleine is my favorite.
    Victoria's dress is better than what she usually wears but I dislike that bow and her slicked back hairstyle. A bit boring and uninspiriring look.
    Silvia looks beautiful in light blue. Nice pop of color.
    All the children are well dressed, love seeing little princes in suits. Adrienne's curly hair are so cute. Oscar looks tired.

  8. Que d’élégance - Sofia a ses cheveux ramenés sur le bas de la nuque par une sorte de bandeau original, qui se ferme par un gros nœud mais un peu trop volumineux à mon goût ; celle qui remporte la palme est Madeleine vêtue d'une robe imprimée à larges volants qui décidément, ont l’air d’être très Tendance en cette période estivale ; j'aime beaucoup la délicatesse du peigne fleuri qu'elle arbore sur le côte de sa coiffure ; cela me fait presque penser à des fleurs de glycine blanches ?! Tous les enfants sont très mignons ; les filles de Madeleine sont très craquantes vêtues dans le même style et couleur de robe ; j’adore les cheveux bouclés d’Adrienne qui a l’air de devenir bien espiègle !

  12. Madeleine est toujours aussi belle et porte une robe ravissante et vaporeuse d'un bleu jacinthe.
    Cette coiffure avec les cheveux lâchés est très naturelle et met
    ses yeux bleus à l'avantage.
    Ses filles sont mignonnes et ravissantes , son fils lui ressemble. Son mari, une fois n'est pas coutume affiche un air aimable.

    These photos are so special! They all tell a beautiful story...sometimes about one person, sometimes a family group.
    I like all the adult ladies dresses - summery, colourful and suitable to each persons choice. The children all look very cute as well (the young boys in their formal wear made me smile) and the men look smart too. Chris is making a valiant effort but is bursting at the seams, lol. However good on him for going with the flow.
    The king and queen have every reason to be proud of their family on this special day.

    The clothes of the Queen and Madeleine look fantastic in colour and model. This cute little daughter of Madeleine with all the curls. Adorable. Victoria a bit boring. Never like her hair so strict backwards. Sofia's dress is nice but it does not flatter her. Too much big prints. The same goes for this strange hair thing

    1. I am also very far from “woke” but please realize that is your personal opinion. Boys (and men) have worn long hair for centuries and in various countries. As a matter of fact, short hair on boys is a relatively modern fashion (And very American). Little and big gentlemen have looked very handsome in long hair throughout history.

      Why ?

      Delete
    3. Yes the men have been wearing long hair and at the same time tight pants, ruffles on their shirts etc; by the way, their long hair were often wigs. Do you also have nostalgia for these sets for today's little boys ?
      We have several little boys here with different hairstyles, for me Nicolas and Gabriel have charming hairstyles, Oscar could perhaps be a little less classic. But if you compare with other recent photos of Alexander I think his hair was cut a bit, not enough in my opinion.
      Have you ever wondered if Alexander appreciates having a hairstyle that is quite different from others, and the extra care it requires ? I know however that longer hair for boys is rather a local trend; I am not sure it will help him to adapt to his contemporary school life, for sport or others, if it is planned to keep his hairstyle tidy. So I agree with Not woke person.

    1. Why not? Where on earth does the idea come from that boys should not have long hair. I presume that either the commentators are extremely conservative living I cannot imagine where or they are all over eighty and living mentally in the 1950's.
      I do not mean to be derogatory but really long hair for boys and men started coming back into fashion et the end of the 1960's beginning 1970's and has never been away since.
      That child is gorgeous with his beautiful hair. Short hair does not make the boy or man.

      Nalerina, you nailed it! Also I have been wondering those sexist (yes, they are nowadays sexist) opinions about boys' hair. Also I believe that most of those who write here are very conservative and perhaps also a little bit older. My son has long hair (with a bun) and the other of my daughter's sons has long hair too and he is eleven years old. When hair is thick and looks good it doesn't matter how long it is. Alexander's hair looks gorgeous, many girls can envoy it. He resembles Victoria very much.
      I adore Sofia's dress and hairpiece and the queen looks lovely. I can't see much about Lina's dress but it looks very nice. No surprises with Victoria and Madeleine, flowers as usual. All the children are adorable, especially Gabriel and Adrienne.

    Princess Madeleine looks stunning. Love her dress, hair, headpiece. She's in really good shape after 3 kids.
    Her mother Silvia shows that with eye catching color, style of your outfit can be simple but still look elegant.
    Sofia's dress looks beautiful but I don't like her hair and that big white bow on her back. Looks strange with her dress.
    VIctoria looks boring. Don't like the print of her dress nor fit and her strikt hairstyle. Expected more of her.
    Little children are sweet and cute. Adrienne with her curls. Little boys in suits. Leonore and Oscar more serious.
    So happy to see all of them gathering together.

    Lovely family, celebrating the baptism of the newest member;
    Victoria, Daniel and children; Beautiful, handsome, well dressed
    Madeleine, Chris, and children: Beautiful, scruffy beard, children well dressed.
    King, Queen: Stylish, simply beautiful
    Prince Carl, Sophie, children: Handsome, beautiful, (though she should have gone with a different hair style and hat, as they looked messy, and unattractive, on the fence about her dress and shoes. The eldest son looks exactly like the Queen!
    Overall, a beautiful family celebration, looking forward to more photos of everyone not just Madeleine and family (5 just in this article). jj

    Adorable children who seem to be growing up so quick 😃 Estelle is getting so tall and Leonore posing so nicely for the photos. Adrienne with her beaautiful curls is nice sight.
    Madeleine is so pretty and elegant in blue. One of her best looks and not afraid to show her beautiful hair like her bigger sis. Victoria looks boring for me. Ugly dress and print. Sofia looks lovely in her floral dress but that xxl bow look ridiculous!
    I guess this was the last christening for the years to come.

    I guess we all have a preference. Beautiful event overall, in my opinion. My winner is Madeleine (and by quite a distance), followed by Victoria and (reluctantly in the’nice’ category), Sophia. All just my personal point of view, but also consistent with the long term opinion I have of their style overall. Ever since they were teenagers, Madeleine had a great sense of style and Victoria seemed uninspired (to put it mildly). As to Sophia, I was never impressed by her ability to balance the demands of a Royal wardrobe with her own instincts (which veer a little too close to questionable appropriateness).

    The queen is such a wonderful lady. Regardless if she was going to marry a future king or not, she always had an inherent sense of style and that continues to be obvious in her late seventies.

    Overall a nice and happy Royal event, the likes of which we haven’t seen much in quite a while - and I for one was missing them. May little prince Julien have a wonderful healthy life with his loving family. God blesss.

  35. Oh they all look so fantastic :-) wonderful occasion, wonderful outfit and as far as I heard a very happy christening.

    How cute, that the big brothers helped to put the water in the bassin. (sorry, I don't know the correct christening-words.)

    They all looked great. I like Sofias dress a lot, the pattern remindes me at the swedish little red wood horses, lovely and fantastic.
    I'm ok with the hairpiece, but it's not a wow for me.
    The boys look very nice in their formal but not to formal dresses.

    Madeleine looks very nice in her dress. I like it a lot. Her hair is also very nice.
    The girls look very nice in their dresses, it remindes me on Charlotte of Englands dresses, I guess, it's the same firm and maybe a dress that Charlotte also wore before.
    Nicolas looks nice in his dress but with the tie a very little bit to adult.

    Victoria looks fantastic too, the dress is nice but I think it would have been more nice without the bow.
    Estelle looks very lovely in that old dress from her mothers childhood. very cute.
    Oscar looks very nice, too, beside, the bow is maybe also a little bit to adult for such a little man :-)
