Royal News Update of the Day: October 16

I had planned to return to Queen Mathilde's trip to Poland today (and we'll still get there later!), but then Sweden dropped a happy bit of info on us yesterday:

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia are expecting a baby! Princess Sofia is pregnant with the couple's first child, and the baby is due in April 2016 (the month after Crown Princess Victoria is due). Congrats to the happy couple!

2016: The Year of the Baby Sash. Brace yourselves.

Since we're chatting Sweden, a couple more things:

Official pictures from the christening of Prince Nicolas have arrived! That green background picks up the colors in the top of Princess Madeleine's dress perfectly, but isn't quite as kind to everyone else.

And a royal gathering for good measure:
Crown Princess Victoria traveled to Luxembourg, where Grand Duchess Maria Teresa hosted a meeting for the Honorary Board of the International Paralympic Committee. Prince Albert of Monaco and Princess Margriet of the Netherlands were also there, and of course Grand Duke Henri was on hand.
Victoria wore another Seraphine Maternity dress, and I can't help it: I am forever in favor of polka dots on all the things. It's cute!
