Princess Sofia & Prince Carl Philip Offer Rare Glimpse Inside Royal Palace in New Christening Photos

The Swedish royal family is offering a rare glimpse inside Drottningholm Palace, and the décor is giving us major Bridgerton vibes.

This week, Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip posed for all-new portraits to celebrate their youngest child, Prince Julian, who was christened at the Royal Chapel in Sweden. Much to our delight, they shared the pics on the family’s official Instagram account.

The slideshow includes three different portraits. The first pic features the baby’s sponsors (AKA godparents), the second one shows the extended family and the final photo captures the family of five, including the couple’s oldest children: Prince Alexander (5) and Prince Gabriel (3).

The pictures give us a sneak peek of the palace’s interior, which is centered around gold accents. While the green curtains catch the eye, the colorful walls and flowers tie it all together. Not only does the room embody the royal family’s classically ornate style, but it also looks like a set from Netflix’s Bridgerton. Where art thou, Your Grace?

Princess Sofia’s gown also deserves an honorable mention. The royal is wearing a floral embellished dress by Etro, which looks effortless and chic without taking too much attention away from Prince Julian.

The translated caption reads, “Official photographs from Saturday’s baptism of Prince Julian. The first picture shows the newly baptized Prince together with his family and his sponsors Jacob Högfeldt, Frida Vesterberg, Patrick Sommerlath and Stina and Johan Andersson. In the second picture, Prince Julian is surrounded by his parents, brothers, the royal couple and Erik and Marie Hellqvist.”

We could stare at these photos all day.
