It comes after Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia shared a candid snap of their family when celebrating their ‘beloved’ son Prince Julian’s christening earlier this month.

Surrounded by his family, including Carl Philip’s sisters heir-to-the-throne Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine, the little one was christened at Drottningholm Palace Chapel, just outside Stockholm in August.
Posting on Instagram, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia wrote: ‘Yesterday our beloved Julian was baptised. Thank you for all the best wishes!’
Prince Julian was dressed in the christening gown worn by his father to his own baptism in 1979, with the family heirloom dating back to Prince Gustaf Adolf’s christening in 1906.
It’s been worn by royal babies ever since, and features elegant lace detailing and ruffled sleeves.
