It was a service to celebrate her newborn baby brother Prince Oscar, but the adorable Princess Estelle managed to share the spotlight with her sibling. Joining her parents Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, and other members of the Swedish royal family, Estelle attended the Te Deum thanksgiving service in the royal palace of Stockholm.

The family were celebrating the birth of baby Oscar, Victoria and Daniel's second child, who arrived at 8.28pm on Wednesday 2 March at Stockholm's Karolinska Hospital.

Oscar, whose full name is Oscar Carl Olof, is now third-in-line to the throne. The baby boy was named after his grandfather King Carl XVI Gustaf and also shares the same name as his uncle Prince Carl Philip.

While mum-of-two Victoria was resting at home, enjoying the first precious moments with her son, the rest of her family stepped out for the service.

Daniel, naturally, looked ecstatic, having just welcomed baby Oscar a few hours before. The prince remained at his wife's side throughout the birth and spoke to the media afterwards, confirming that Oscar was born weighing eight pounds and measuring 22 inches long.

With a big smile, he said that both mother and baby were doing well, adding: "I have not had time to feel just yet how it feels to be a father of two. But it feels good so far!"

Prince Daniel said: "I have not had time to feel just yet how it feels to be a father of two. But it feels good so far!"

During the ceremony Daniel looked after his four-year-old daughter Estelle, who looked adorable in a pink dress and matching cardigan. She wore a sweet bow in her hair and carried a pink heart-designed handbag.

Royal watchers were also thrilled to spot Princess Sofia among the attendees. The former model, who is married to Prince Carl Philip, is expecting the couple's first child next month.

Sofia, 31, was on glowing form, dressing her growing bump in a silver grey dress that featured lace floral detailing.

While the family will have congratulated Victoria and Daniel in private, they also released statements through the palace to express their best wishes and happiness.
