Official christening photos of Princess Adrienne released

The Swedish Royal Court has released the official images from Princess Adrienne of Sweden’s christening, which took place on Friday, 8 June in the Royal Chapel of Drottningholm Palace.

The 8th of June is a special day in the little royal’s family as her parents, Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill, married on that day in 2013. Her older sister, Princess Leonore (4) was also christened on that date in 2014.
