Princess Estelle: sponsors at baptism

Princess Estelle of Sweden, second in line to the throne, will be baptised on Tuesday.  One Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet, reported today that the infant princess will have five sponsors.  (Victoria and her younger siblings have four sponsors each.)  On March 20, I believed that the four godparents would be:

The Prince of Orange,  the Crown Princess of Denmark, Anna Westling Söderström (Prince Daniel's sister), and Prince Carl Philip.    Although no announcement has been made by the Palace, Aftonbladet confirms my thoughts and adds the Crown Prince of Norway. 

Crown Princess Victoria is godmother to Prince Christian of Denmark, Princess Amalia of the Netherlands and Princess Ingrid of Norway.
