It is not yet known who the godmothers of Prince Julian will be, but it is clear which dress he will wear. After all, the item of clothing has been passed on from one person to be baptized in the Swedish royal family since 1906. Princess Adrienne, 3, was last baptized in it, so now it’s Julian’s turn. His brothers Prince Gabriel, 3, and Prince Alexander, 5, also saw the ceremony in the dress.

The dress is made of cotton batiste and Valencienne lace, the slip is made of silk satin. The dress also includes a shirt made of lace and a christening napkin, also made of batiste with Valenciennes lace. Since the baptism of King Carl Gustafs, 75, sister Princess Margaretha, a cape and a hat made of cream-colored silk satin have also been included.

The special thing about the family heirloom: The names of the previous wearers and the respective baptism date are on the edge of the throw. Julian’s name will now be the next to be embroidered into the silk satin.
