Swedish prince's first photo

Sweden's Princess Madeleine has released the first picture of her baby son.

The 33-year-old princess and her husband, financier Christopher O'Neill, welcomed their second child into the world on Monday (15.06.15) afternoon and an official image of the tot has been posted on the Swedish royal family's Facebook page.

The image of the as-yet unnamed little boy sees the baby clad in a grey buttoned outfit with his eyes closed.

The princess has now returned home with her son to Christopher and 15-month-old daughter Princess Leonore.

The image caption translated as: "Princess Madeleine's and Christopher O 'Neill's Son. Princess Madeleine has now left the hospital and is home with the whole family."

The new arrival will be raised in Chris' native UK as the family are preparing to move to London by the end of 2015.

The couple moved to Stockholm last year from New York, where they first met.

Madeleine - who spent four years living in America and has resided in the UK before - has previously spoken of how much she adores being married to Chris.

She has said: "The sweetest feeling now that we are married is that we really are a team. It really brings a special bond."

The new baby was born just two days after the Swedish royals welcomed another family member, following Prince Carl Philip's wedding to Sofia Hellqvist.
