Crown Princess Victoria, when still Princess Victoria, of Sweden was christened in the Storkyrkan Church in Stockholm on this day in 1977, exactly 40 years ago. The eldest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, she was not the Heir Apparent to the Swedish Throne until January 1980, when the Constitution changed to introduce Absolute Primogeniture, thus allowing her to become Crown Princess of Sweden.
