Sofia, Duchess of Varmland is about to become a mummy but will it be a boy or a girl?
Sofia face to face with royal history
As soon as I saw Sofia in front of this piece of Swedish history, the thoughts of a baby prince got stronger. Maybe it's because we're all loving seeing Prince Oscar in his blue cardigan, maybe it's because the royal baby in Sweden before that was also a boy but I have a feeling Sofia will welcome a son.
Prince Oscar of Sweden is his country's newest prince - but will he have another male cousin to play with in the near future?

Perhaps more tellingly, Sofia wore a lot of blue around the mid mark of her pregnancy - when scans usually show the gender of a baby. And while we heard that this royal couple didn't want to know the gender of their child before birth, princesses are allowed to change their minds. Victoria wore a lot of blue at the same point in her great expectations with Oscar so could Sweden's line of succession be about to welcome its fourth prince?
