The Swedish Royal Court has announced that Princess Madeleine gave birth to her third child – a daughter – this morning at 12:41am at the Danderyd Hospital in Stockholm.  Both mother and baby are doing well.  The baby weighed 3465 grams (about 7.6 pounds) and is 50cm in length (about 19.6 inches).
Princess Madeleine and her husband, Christopher O’Neill, have two older children – Princess Leonore, born in February 2014, and Prince NIcolas, born in June 2015.  Their new daughter will be 10th in the line of succession to the Swedish throne.
As is the tradition in Sweden, the King will announce the baby’s names and titles at a Council meeting to be held on Monday, March 12, 2018.  The meeting will be followed by a Te Deum service held in the Castle Church.
