New Princess of Sweden
The Swedish Royal Court announced that Crown Princess Victoria has given birth to a healthy baby girl, the first child of her and her husband Prince Daniel and according to the cognatic primogeniture succession law adopted in 1980, Sweden's future sovereign. Congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses on the first Swedish royal baby in three decades! Personally I hope they'll name her either Christina or Ulrika Eleonora for continuity with previous Swedish Queens Regnant.
Update (24 Feb): King Carl XVI Gustaf announced that his new granddaughter's names are Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, with the title Duchess of Östergötland.
