Alexander Erik Hubertus

And Im reading that he was given the dukedom reserved to the head of the house... if true the king really has a problem.

Yes, but she had the black hair on her last engagement before she gave birth.   When did she lighten the color?

That he does.   Always favoring his poor widdle boy who was robbed!  yes, robbed! of being king and now a mere female -- two females! -- in line for the throne.   I hope he does not show marked favoritism toward this grandchild.  Nothing good will come of it.     bored3

So please someone explain this to me: Is Estelle the future queen or is Alexander the future king?

The order of succession in Sweden is currently the following :
Victoria, Carl Philip's older sister,
Her children  : Estelle and her little brother Oscar,
Then Carl Philip and Alexander,
And then Madeleine and her children Leonore and Nicholas.

Estelle is the Heir's heir.
Alexander is the firstborn child of the fourth-in-line.

Edit :actually Alexander is in the same place in the succession line than Beatrice of York was before George and Charlotte's births.

He looks like Carl did as a baby:

Nice to see it is all about the baby and not the parents, a very welcome change.  Yes, he does look a lot like his father, no denying that one.  Such a little cutie, hope we get regular photos like we do with Estelle, Leonor and the two other little ones born recently.

There's resemblance between him and Carl as a baby. Cute? Maybe in a couple of months. So far Oscar and Nicolas are the only ones I thought were cute babies right off the bat. I hope Oscar continues to look Daniel. That would be so cute! Estelle looks like Victoria. A set of mini replicas but we'll see.

I think that Nicolas was the better looking baby from the boys but until a couple of years we won't know how they will look.

The line of succession is quite simple Victoria will be queen then her children so Estelle and then Oscar. Then there is Carl Phillip and his children. Afterwards is Madde and her children. Only if Victoria and her two children die Carl Phillip would be king.

The more I think about it the more I find it awful that Carl Gustaf couldn't give this dukedom to Oscar or even Estelle. Carl Phillip looked the happiest since the wedding but Victoria had a weird look during the ceremony. I think that when CG dies and Victoria is queen lots of things will change in Sweden.

I think the baby looks a lot like Sofia's father in this one photo.   However, babies change a lot.   But it would be quite fitting, in my opinion, if the baby turned out to be the spitting image of Sofia's father and looked nothing like the royal family, which would annoy CG to no end.   

I'm sure Madeliene and Victoria felt the sting of their father's action with the dukedom.  But they are used to it, at least.  Maddie had an excuse to not be present at the service and I think that the huge bow on Victoria's head was a middle finger to Sofia.   eating cookies

^ thankyou, Alexandrine re the line of succession.  I've got it now.  And, you're right, I was making it more complicated than it needed to be.

Photos of CG, Sofia and the baby

Natural and in love with their child.  You can´t fake that, no matter how hard pr try to spin it for council cath and bill medd  -  it does not exist with them.  It is just there.  Love the dog, what a cutie pie.

Fabulous Pictures. Sofia has grown into her role. She is moving very quickly away from her indelicate past. Bravo Sofia. Oh, how refreshing to see a real baby not a Reborn Doll. And the overwhelming love these parents have for him is totally evident. Nothing Fake Here.
