Princess Adrienne of Sweden will be christened on Friday, June 8th. The day is extra special because it is her parent's 5th wedding anniversary & her older sister Leonore was christened on this day 4 years ago as well.

Adrienne is the 3rd child of Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Chris O'Neil & is 10th in line to the Swedish Throne. She will be just about 3 months old when christened.

The christening will take place at the Royal Chapel at Drottningholm Palace. (Her older sister Leonore & Nicolas as well as cousins, Alexander & Gabriel were also christened there.)

Swedish public service broadcaster, Sveriges Television, will be broadcasting Princess Adrienne's christening. The Live Coverage starts at 11:30 AM. The Live Stream and Service will both be in Swedish, but don't worry it's not hard to follow. And, of course, a bunch of us will be Live Tweeting the whole thing.
