Greetings! This is the place to chat if you'll be watching and enjoying the christening of Prince Gabriel of Sweden, son of Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia. The service is scheduled to begin at noon, local time, and will be held at Drottningholm Palace Chapel. The christening broadcast, via Swedish broadcaster SVT, will be available to watch for a month afterward.

Update: The christening is over. You can rewatch at this link. The broadcast will be available until December 31. 

The godparents are:
  • Princess Madeleine, Carl Philip's sister
  • Sara Hellqvist, Sofia's sister
  • Oscar Kylberg, Carl Philip's friend and business partner
  • Carolina Pihls, Sofia's friend and business partner
  • Thomas de Toledo Sommerlath, Carl Philip's maternal cousin

We'll be back with a wrap up post later in the day. Please mind the comment policy as always, and have fun!
