A vision in white, Princess Sofia of Sweden looked absolutely divine on Saturday while attending her son Prince Julian's christening in the Drottningholm Palace Chapel. Joined by her husband Prince Carl Philip for the ceremony, Sofia wore a floral embellished frock by Etro, completing her look with a stunning pair of ivory stilettos.

Delivering a masterclass in accessorising, the royal styled her brunette hair in a low ponytail complete with a statement satin headband that tied into a bow at the back. Letting softly curled tresses frame her face, Sofia added the sweetest pearl droplet earrings. As for her makeup, the mum-of-three rocked a natural and subdued look, combining a brown smokey shadow with rosy blusher and a Parisian pink lipstick to match – gorgeous.

A milestone day for Princess Sofia, the royal decided to follow tradition as she dressed her four-month-old son in the same christening gown worn by his father to his own baptism in 1979. The family heirloom dates back to Prince Gustaf Adolf's christening in 1906 and has been worn by royal babies since. Meanwhile, her husband, Prince Carl Philip, wore his military uniform. 

The couple were also joined by their eldest sons, Prince Alexander, five, and Prince Gabriel, three, who looked adorable in matching navy shorts, white shirts and cream blazers.
