Princess Madeleine of Sweden shares photos of 'little angels' Leonore and Nicolas

Brimming with joy and in the company of her two children, Princess Madeleine of Sweden has showed off her ever expanding family in new photos released by the palace. The 33-year-old and her husband Chris O'Neill star in the gorgeous images, but it's the couple's "little angels" who take centre stage.

In one photo Madeleine is pictured cradling her newborn son Prince Nicolas, who is sweetly bundled up in a pale blue blanket. The sleeping tot is blissfully unaware of the photographer, while proud parents Madeleine and Chris beam at the camera.

Only six weeks have passed since the fresh-faced princess welcomed her baby boy, but Madeleine, who is also a mum to Princess Leonore, showed no signs of tiredness.

The doting mum, who looked radiant in a white summery dress and cardigan, posted some of the photos on Facebook and wrote: "I'm so thankful to be a mother of two. Both Leonore and her brother Nicolas are little angels!"

Madeline and Chris, 41, took turns holding their newborn and another sweet photo captured the father-son duo.

The couple's daughter Leonore also took part in the photoshoot, which took place in the gardens of Solliden Palace – the royal family's official summer residence.

The 17-month-old matched the roses behind her, wearing a pink striped frock and a cute bow in her hair. With her full lips and bright blue eyes, royal watchers noted how Leonore is taking after her beautiful mum in looks.

The Swedish royal family welcomed their new prince, who is now sixth-in-line to the throne, on Monday 15 June. Madeleine and Chris moved from New York last year and have been temporarily based in Sweden.

The couple and their children are currently enjoying their summer break in the south of Sweden, bonding as a family of four, but plan to move to London in the autumn for Chris' job.

The businessman recently gave an interview with Swedish publication Expressen in which he said: "We always planned on moving to London but then the baby was born and we thought it would be a good idea to stay in Stockholm for a bit. I don't want to be alone in my hotel room every night. I want to go home to my family and have dinner together. Nothing else matters more."
