Among the guests at the Lutheran service were King Olav and Crown Princess Sonja of Norway, Queen Ingrid of Denmark, King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola of the Belgians, along with a "sprinkling of Scandinavian princes and princesses."
Princess Victoria is ten weeks old. Her godparents are Crown Prince Harald of Norway, Crown Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands, her aunt, Princess Desiree, Baroness Silfverschiold, and her uncle, Ralf Sommerlath, brother of Queen Silvia.
