On Sunday, October 11, 2015, Prince Nicolas was christened into the Church of Sweden at the Royal Chapel of Drottningholm Palace. For the event, his aunt, Princess Sofia wore a burgundy, long-sleeved Gucci dress, which was discovered by Sarah. She also wore a pair of Rizzo heels to match her dress, as well as a light pink fascinator.
Nicolas appeared rather upset throughout his christening ceremony, with Madeleine doing all she could to sooth him. At one point, Princess Estelle left her seat to go find him a pacifier. Always willing to help like her mother before her, she brought it to her Uncle Chris for her cousin. (However, Nicolas already had a pacifier in his mouth at this point, but neither Madeleine or Chris were going to turn away young Estelle's sweet gesture.)
After the ceremony, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia hosted a lunch in honour of their grandson's important day. The Princess Couple also greeted the guests while Nicolas lay in the crib of King Karl XV. Leonore was with her parents but understandably grew tired during the greetings and ended up just sitting on the steps for a time.
Unbeknownst to the public, Princess Sofia was pregnant with her and Prince Carl Philip's first child. Their happy announcement came just a couple days later on October 15. The Court explained to the press then that the family had been aware of Sofia's pregnancy for quite a while; however, the Prince and Princess wanted to wait until after the christening of Nicolas, as they wanted all the attention on him for the special day.
