Along with the pictures, a message from the royal couple read: "A big and warm thanks for all the kind congratulations that have been received in connection with the birth of our son, Prince Gabriel.” Sofia and Carl added, “We appreciate your caring a lot."


In one image, the doting father cradled Gabriel, while looking at his one-year-old son, who was carried by Sofia. Alexander, dressed in a navy jumper and matching trousers, adorably stared into the camera, showing off his long blonde locks in the family photo. Another shot featured a close-up of Prince Gabriel gazing up at his parents as Carl, 38, and his wife, 32, sweetly admired their baby boy in Sofia’s arms.
