Published: 21 May 2014 09:41 GMT+02:00
A family photo of Princess Madeleine, her husband, and their tiny princess daughter proved to be a smash hit on Facebook, with the family set to head to Sweden for a Leonore's royal christening.
They say a picure tells a thousand words. And it seems a picture of a young royal family gets 150,000 likes. At least on Facebook.
The princess took to the social media site on Tuesday to share the first picture of her, Chris O'Neill, and their tiny baby Princess Leonore. There was no caption with the black and white family snap, but it garnered over 150,000 likes, over 3,000 comments, and thousands of shares.
