Royals in the pink

There's been a lot of pink around recently. We expect a smattering here and there but the last week or so has seen a surge in rose tinted royals that is rather remarkable. From hats to coats to dresses to trousers and taking in bags and shoes, royalty across Europe has been in the pink. Here are some of the rosiest moments.

A royal christening needs official portraits and now we have those belonging to Prince Oscar Carl Olof of Sweden, Duke of Skane. The little royal was baptised on Friday and two days later his family have shared portraits that will be part of his story for decades to come.

Estelle and Leonore, the happy cousins

We are still waiting for the official photos of Prince Oscar's christening but in the meantime we have some rather lovely pics of his sister and his cousin. Estelle and Leonore clearly had a real giggle at the baptism party if these images, shared by Princess Madeleine on her Facebook page, are anything to go by.

It's the start of a summer of sport for William and Harry. As May came to an end, the Duke of Cambridge and his brother took part in a polo match that will signal the start of a series of events through the warm and light days of the year - and all to raise money for charity.

Prince Oscar Carl Olof of Sweden was christened today in a ceremony that was all about family. The third in line to the Swedish throne was baptised in the Royal Chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm on May 27th 2016 in a ceremony that started at noon and ended with smiles. The second littlest royal in Sweden sailed through his big day - an event that was all about family.

The christening of Prince Oscar, Duke of Skane is taking place this lunchtime in Stockholm. The third in line to the throne arrived in the arms of his mother, Crown Princess Victoria, with his father, Prince Daneil, and big sister, Estelle at his side. And he had a right royal line up waiting to greet him on his special day.

Emeralds for May: United Kingdom

One of the most famous emerald tiaras in the world belongs to the Queen and it really packs a ragal punch. It looks spectacular and that's before we get to its history and its versatility - those emeralds can be swapped for pearls for a lighter look. It's time for Emeralds for May to meet the Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara.
