The glamorous Swedish royal family isn't quite done celebrating the regal christening of Prince Alexander.

On Monday the palace released official photos of Sweden's youngest royal prince, taken by court photographer Mattias Edwall at Drottningholm Palace immediately after the ceremony on September 9.

The four images include new parents Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia withtheir five-month-old baby boy as well as Sofia’s two sisters, Lina and Sara Hellqvist, and Carl Philip’s two sisters, Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Madeleine – both of whom brought their own children to the special day. Another photo shows both sets of proud grandparents.

After his big morning, it's perhaps no surprise that after the service the tiny Duke of Södermanland, (as the young prince is also known), decided to take a nap, leaving his parents to greet guests on their way to enjoy a celebratory lunch with King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.  More pics & video...
