Prince Nicolas was born on 15 June 2015 at Danderyd Hospital in Danderyd, Sweden.[2][3] The birth was greeted by a 21-gun salute from Skeppsholmen in Stockholm and from the saluting stations in Gothenburg, Härnösand, Karlskrona and Boden.[4] On 17 June, his names and title were announced at a state council by his grandfather, King Carl XVI Gustaf.[5]

A Te Deum thanksgiving service was held in his honour in the Royal Chapel at Stockholm Palace on 18 June 2015.[6]


Nicolas was baptised into the Lutheran faith by Antje Jackelén, the first female archbishop of Sweden, on 11 October 2015 in the Royal Chapel of Drottningholm Palace.[7] SVT announced that it would broadcast the ceremony live, despite earlier reports that it would not due to complaints from the public.[8] His godparents were his maternal uncle, Prince Carl Philip; his paternal aunt, Natascha Abensperg und Traun; his paternal uncle, Henry d'Abo; his mother's cousin, Gustaf Magnuson; and friends of his parents, Katarina von Horn and Marco Wajselfisz.[9]
