Victoria had her second child, a boy, at Karolinska hospital in Stockholm at 8.28 PM today March 2. According to Prince Daniel at the press conference, it happened very quickly. They did not know in advance that it would be a boy. Princess Estelle hasn’t been told that she is a big sister yet, as she had gone to bed when her parents departed for the hospital.
The King and Queen now have two each of granddaughters and grandsons, and the child expected in April by their son and daughter-in-law will tip the balance.
The name will be announced tomorrow in the council of state.
Anyone have any nice suggestion for a royal Swedish boy’s names?
The King is called: Carl Gustaf Folke Hubertus.
Prince Daniel’s full name is Olof Daniel.
His father is named Olle Gunnar.
Prince Carl Philip’s full name is Carl Philip Edmund Bertil.
Prince Nicolas was called: Nicolas Paul Gustaf (so, original first name, and grandfathers.)
Princess Estelle’s name does also contain the names of her two grandmothers, Silvia and Ewa. So I think that we might very likely see at least either one of Carl Gustaf’s names and either one of Olle Westling’s names in the mix. I am hoping, for the sake of alliteration that they will go with Gustaf and Gunnar. 😀
I am liking the Swedish prince name Eugen, which I think would work well with Estelle, but they are probably bringing this one out of left field like they did with her name.
