The year 2015 was eventful for the Swedish Royal family. It saw both a wedding and a new member of the family, and the royalties made several journeys abroad.
On June 13th Prince Carl Philip married Sofia Hellqvist in the Royal Chapel in Stockholm. In the fall the couple announced that Princess Sofia is pregnant and that the baby is expected in April 2016.
On June 15th Princess Madeleine and her husband Christopher O’Neill had their second child, Prince Nicolas. He was baptised on 11 October in the Royal Chapel of Drottningholm Palace.
During the year the Swedish royalties made trips to South Africa, Portugal, Finland, Peru and Colombia. And in April Queen Silvia, Princess Madeleine and little Princess Leonore had a private audience with Pope Francis I in Rome.
