Prince Gabriel of Sweden's Christening Photos Are Absolutely Adorable
The Swedish royal family went all out for Prince Gabriel's christening on Friday—and Gabriel's mom Princess Sofia completely stole the show in a traditional Swedish ensemble.
As People reports, Princess Sofia wore a red and white Swedish folk costume with touching ties to Dalarna, the province in Sweden where Sofia was raised and Prince Gabriel's Duchy, since he was given the title Prince Gabriel, Duke of Dalarna when he was born.
