Princess Charlotte just got a new royal playmate! One month after the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's daughter, Sweden welcomed its own royal baby with the birth of Princess Madeleine's newborn son.
The Swedish princess, 33, gave birth to a son on Monday, June 15, welcoming her second child with husband Christopher O'Neill. The royal family broke the happy news in a statement on the official Facebook page of Kungahuset.
"The Marshal of the Realm is delighted to announce that HRH Princess Madeleine gave birth to a son on June 15 at 1:45 p.m.," the statement reads. "Both mother and child are in good health. Svante Lindqvist, Marshal of the Realm."
The Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland's new delivery makes their daughter, Princess Leonore, Duchess of Gotland, a big sister. The happy couple had their first child in February 2014, eight months after they exchanged vows in a lavish ceremony at the Royal Chapel in Stockholm Palace.
Princess Madeleine kept active well into the last trimester of her pregnancy, donning glamorous maternity wear just this past weekend to attend her brother's wedding. The gorgeous royal and her 40-year-old businessman love toted their 16-month old daughter to the nuptials of Prince Carl Philip and his wife Sofia Hellqvist on Saturday, June 13.
The Duchess' newborn Prince, who is sixth in the line of succession, is the third grandchild for Sweden's King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia. In addition to Princess Leonore, the royals are also the grandparents to Princess Estelle, the daughter of Crown Princess Victoria and her husband, Daniel Westling.
