Princess Sofia Wears a Traditional Swedish Dress for 7-Week-Old Prince Alexander's First Public Outing
There's no better way to celebrate Sweden's National Day than with an adorable dose of the country's tiniest royal (and a royal family photo shoot to match).
In honor of Sweden's birthday, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia took their 7-week-old son, Prince Alexander, on his first public outing, with the baby boy tucked in his mom's arms and covered with a blanket. Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip were all smiles as they stood together outside Stockholm's Royal Palace, with the new mom wearing a traditional blue and yellow dress adorned with flowers and paired with a white collared shirt underneath.
The ever-dapper Prince Carl coordinated with his wife's look, wearing a gray suit, white collared shirt and blue tie as they welcomed visitors inside the palace. While Princess Sofia opted for a traditional dress for the occasion, she was suited up in modern clothing during a recent public appearance. Last week, she attended their new nephew Prince Oscar's christening in a powder blue dress with cape detailing, and topped off the look with a brooch, beige fascinator, and beige pumps.
Sofia's stylings aside, Little Alexander's debut was just one of the surprises on Sweden's National Day. The Swedish royal family also released several new snaps showing Princess Victoria and her two children—Prince Oscar and Princess Estelle—playing in a field in honor of the holiday.
In one photo, Princess Estelle totes a basket in her hand as she plays with sheep in a garden. In another, mom wraps her arms around Prince Alexander, while wearing a pretty dress. In a third, she holds him tight as the tiny royal sticks his hand in his mouth.
Happy National Day of Sweden, indeed.
