Queen Silvia at Princess Estelle's christening

Princess Estelle, Duchess of Östergötland, was christened on May 22, 2012, at the Royal Chapel of Stockholm Palace. 

Our Editor-in-Chief, Sarah, found that Queen Silvia wore a blush-colored Valentino design for the religious ceremony. The top featured a beautiful lace peplum. She wore a short pearl necklace and pearl drop earrings with the outfit and a Jimmy Choo clutch to match the Valentino design she was wearing. Her Jimmy Choo shoes were matching in the same color.

Princess Estelle's godparents were Prince Carl Philip, her maternal uncle; Crown Princess Mary, a close friend of her mother and for whom she was given one of her middle names; Anna Westling-Söderström, her paternal aunt; Crown Prince Haakon of Norway; and the then Prince Willem-Alexander - now King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands.

Like her mother, uncle, and aunt before her, she wore the traditional christening gown of the Swedish Royal Family which was first worn by Prince Gustaf Adolph at his christening in 1906. Her name was sewn in to the gown like her family before her. Her cousins and younger brother would follow when it came time for their christenings. 

Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary was born on February 23, 2012, at Karolinska University Hospital in Solna, Sweden.
