Princess Madeleine of Sweden welcomed her second child on Monday, but the royal has already shared the first picture of her beautiful baby boy. Posting the shot on the Swedish royal family's Facebook page, the picture shows the one-day-old baby boy peacefully sleeping.

With a full head of hair, the little one is wearing a grey onesie, with buttons running down the side. Madeleine and her husband Chris O'Neill have yet to release the boy's name, but the proud parents have now left the hospital and are home with the whole family.

Madeleine, 33, spent the first night bonding with her newborn son in hospital. Her husband Chris also remained at his wife and son's side, but on Tuesday morning he was pictured briefly leaving the maternity ward.

The British-American businessman, who married the Swedish royal in June 2013, gave a thumbs-up to photographers before driving off in his car.

The pair welcomed their first child, daughter Princess Leonore in 2014, and they were visited by eager family members just a few hours after Madeleine gave birth to their son.

Among the first visitors who were pictured arriving at the Danderyds Sjukhus hospital in Stockholm were Madeleine's parents King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia. The royal couple were all smiles and no doubt thrilled to meet the newborn prince, who is their first grandson and third grandchild.

Before entering the maternity ward on Monday, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia gave a cheerful wave to photographers.

The 71-year-old queen, who looked resplendent in a fuchsia blazer and skirt, was later pictured leaving the hospital with a bouquet of white flowers.

"The family is overjoyed with this new arrival to the Swedish Royal Family!"

Press officer Margareta Thorgren also held a conference with reporters, in which she revealed that the baby weighed 3,080 grams, measured 49 centimetres and had his father Chris' chin.
