If you are as excited about the news as us, you probably want to send Victoria and Daniel a letter or card to congratulate them on their baby son. The address is:

What to expect in reply? Will they reply?

Who really knows when it comes to the Swedish Royal Family. Sometimes they send out replies, sometimes they don't. They do always release a statement online saying how deeply touched they were for all the well-wishes.

You can find the two replies I have gotten from the Swedish Royal Family here.

Note: If you wanted to send condolences for the death of Prince Johann Georg today. The address is the same as above, except you should write to his wife, Princess Birgitta.

HRH  Princess Birgitta
