We don't know who the godparents will be yet but as Prince Carl Philip was sponsor to Estelle it's likely that Victoria's other sibling, Princess Madeleine, could be asked to do the honours this time round. Estelle had three royal godparents - King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, Crown Prince Haakon Magnus of Norway and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark so we will probably see another regal sponsor on Oscar's list.
And no doubt we will see lots of baby blue. Queen Silvia chose the shade for the christening of her first grandson, Nicolas, and for the Te Deum for Oscar and it's likely that at least some of the women in the royal party will follow her lead for this latest christening.
Finding a date for the christening hasn't been easy - there's another royal baby due this month and at the end of April there are large scale celebrations for the 70th birthday of King Carl XVI Gustaf. June sees the 40th wedding anniversary of the Swedish king and queen and that's before we get down to the general business of royal engagements, visits and trips. In this packed royal year we have another highlight to look forward to - the christening of Prince Oscar on Mary 27th.
