Prince Alexander of Sweden at one

The (current) littlest prince of Sweden turns one today. Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil, Duke of Sodermanland celebrates his landmark birthday on April 19th and has this royal routine sorted already. He's starring in three portraits to mark his special day.

Prince Alexander, fifth grandchild of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia and fifth in line to the throne of Sweden, is seen in a solo image and in a family photo with mum, Princess Sofia, and dad, Prince Carl Philip.  Just weeks ago, the couple announced that they will welcome a second child in September.  These official photos were taken by Erika Gerdemark.

There's also a family snap, shared on the official Instagram account and taken by proud dad, Carl Philip. In it, Alexander is doing what all one year olds do - working out what mischief he can get up to next. They are happy photos of a happy baby on a special day.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
