The newborn son of Princess Madeleine and New York banker Christopher O'Neill was baptized today near Stockholm.
The baby, Prince Nicolas Paul Gustaf, is the sixth in line to the Swedish throne.
Princess Madeleine's newborn son will also be known as the Duke of Angermanland.
For the occasion, the mother-of-two wore a jewel toned dress coat and a matching ruby flower in her hair.
Over 150 guests including family, friends and political leaders attended the ceremony today in the chapel of Drottingholm Palace just outside Stockholm.
Five-month-old Nicolas howled as Archbishop Antje Jackelen baptized him, though he stopped crying as she raised him in her arms in front of the congregation.
It was the first royal baptism for Jackelen, the Scandinavian country's first female archbishop.
Nicolas is sixth in line to the throne after his sister, Princess Leonore.

Their mother, 33-year-old Madeleine, is fourth in line to the Swedish throne, which Carl XVI Gustaf inherited 41 years ago.
She is the youngest of the king's and Queen Silvia's three children.
Sweden is a constitutional monarchy in which the royals primarily serve as figureheads.
The current dynasty was founded in 1810 when French marshal Jean Baptiste Bernadotte was elected as successor to the throne.
The royal family has only ceremonial duties, such as attending award ceremonies, promoting Swedish businesses abroad and supporting charities. As head of state, the king also receives foreign dignitaries on formal visits to the Scandinavian country.
