Princess Adrienne’s official christening portraits are missing two key family members! On Monday, June 11, the Swedish Royal Court shared three images taken by photographer Erika Gerdemark at Drottningholm Palace following the Swedish royal’s baptism that took place last Friday. Noticeably absent from the stunning pictures are the Princess’ older siblings — Princess Leonore, four, and Prince Nicolas, two.

The three-month-old royal was instead joined by her parents Princess Madeleine and Christopher O'Neill, as well as her grandparents and six godparents. The Princess Couple proudly posed sitting down for a solo shot with their baby girl. Queen Silvia, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Chris’ mom Eva Maria Walter stood behind the trio in another photograph.
Adrienne’s godparents — Miss Anouska d'Abo, Mrs. Coralie Charriol Paul, Mr. Nader Panahpour, Baron Gustav Thott, Mrs. Charlotte Kreuger Cederlund and Mrs. Natalie Werner — joined their goddaughter and her parents in an additional picture, which Madeleine shared on her personal Instagram account, which she captioned, “Team Adrienne!”

Madeleine and Chris’ youngest daughter, who was born in March, remained dressed in her traditional christening gown for the photo session. The young Princess was christened on Friday, June 8, which coincided with her parents’ fifth wedding anniversary. Though her big sister and brother were not featured in the official christening portraits, they did attend the ceremony at Drottningholm Palace Church last week.
One day after the christening, Princess Madeleine shared a photo of her cheeky daughter Leonore climbing rocks outdoors. Alongside the photo, she wrote, “Leonore in her true element.” Madeleine and her family reside in London but spend a lot of time in the Princess’ native Sweden.

A press secretary for the mom-of-three has previously told HOLA! USA that Madeleine wants her children to feel “at home” in Sweden. The press officer said, “The Princess feels that her children should have a strong connection with Sweden. She wants them to feel at home here just as she does.”
