The palace, first built in the early 19th century, as a special home for young royal children, is now home to Sweden's latest addition to the royal family.



Prince Oscar, third in line to the Swedish throne (after mom Crown Princess Victoria and big sister Princess Estelle) shows he's very comfortable in front of the camera, enjoying a relaxing nap while the court photographer takes his picture.

As his parents adjust to a busier life – now with two children running around the family home – the little prince is wrapped in the same blanket that snuggled Princess Estelle when she was very young.

And for once, Princess Estelle is letting her little brother enjoy the spotlight!
