Yeralash of the day (video): the most fun royal christening24.05.2022
Today was the christening of the youngest daughter of the Swedish Princess Madeleine and her husband Chris O’Neill – Adrienne Josephine Alice . The girl was born on March 9 this year. The first of the names of the newborn was chosen by the parents, the name Josephine is often used by representatives of the dynasty, and Alice is the name of the mother of Queen Silvia, as well as one of the names of Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Birgitta.
The baptism took place in the church at the Royal Chapel of Drottningholm Palace. The sacrament ceremony was broadcast live on the SVT channel. The girl turned out to have six godparents, including relatives and close friends of Adrienne’s parents.
On this important day, the baby was dressed in a family baptismal dress , which was first used for a christening ceremony in 1906. Adrienne’s grandfather, her mother and numerous relatives from the royal family were christened in this dress. The ceremony used water from a spring on the island of Öland, a tradition established by the king and queen for the christening of the crown princess.
However, the attention of the guests of the ceremony was attracted not only by baby Adrienne, but also by her older sister, four-year-old Leonora . The girl could not sit still, during the rite of baptism she played on the carpet, got rid of her shoes and in every possible way ignored such an important moment for the family. Instagram is full of photos and videos showing Leonora’s antics. She managed to “spoil” even the official photos from the christening: either she squatted at the most inopportune moment, or she hid behind her brother’s back. But little Adrienne was calm: she cried only at the end of the ceremony.
However, the parents of the convert, Princess Madeleine and her husband Chris O’Neill , kept a truly Aryan equanimity.
The royal family asked the guests not to give gifts for Adrienne’s baptism, but to make a contribution to the development of the World Childhood Fund.
