Archbishop Antje Jackelén officiated, assisted by Chief Court Chaplain Bishop Johan Dalman and Pastor of the Royal Court Parish Michael Bjerkhagen.

After the christening, 21-gun salutes were fired from Skeppsholmen and from the HMS Kullen outside Drottningholm Palace.

The King and Queen then held a reception at Drottningholm Palace and a lunch for invited guests.

As a christening gift, the Swedish Riksdag and the Government of Sweden gave Princess Adrienne children's books with Swedish songs and a ukulele.
