Review: The year 2014 in pictures

Not as busy as last year but still filled with engagements and babies - and a new King! Let's have a look!

On February 20th, late in the evening, Princess Madeleine's first child was born in New York - a girl named Leonore Lilian Maria.

On May 30th the long awaited first pregnancy of Princess Charlene was announced.

Little Leonore was christened in Stockholm on June 8th, the day of the first wedding anniversary of her parents.

June brought us another King. After King Juan Carlos announced his abdication on June 2nd, Crown Prince Felipe and Crown Princess Letizia became King and Queen on June 19th.

On June 27th the Swedish Royal Court announced the engagement of Prince Carl-Philip and Sofia Hellqvist. Their wedding will take place on June 15th 2015.

Prince George celebrated his first birthday on July 22nd with having new pictures released.

On September 8th the second pregnancy of Duchess Catherine was announced. She is again suffering HG as with her first pregnancy. The baby is due in April.

December 10th was always reserved for the Nobels. Not all eyes were in Sweden, though as Princess Charlene gave birth to her twins: Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques.

And last but definitely not least - Princess Madeleine and Chris O'Neill are expecting their second child, due in summer 2015. The announcement was made on December 19th a bit earlier as usual after several rumours that came up after the Nobel festivities.

What are your hopes/guesses for 2015? I would love to see Victoria pregnant again and a baby for Sofia and Carl-Philip is sure I think. Apart from that, we're going to have a rather quiet year.

I wish you all the best for the new year!
