On the occasion of a royal birth, a statement of witness is drawn up in accordance with tradition. This is done on the day after the birth, unless the birth takes place on a Saturday, in which case the statement of witness is drawn up on the following Monday. At the same time, the four witnesses see the newborn child.
The statement of witness is signed and sealed by the witnesses.
The witnesses for Prince Alexander were Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, First Lady of the Court Anna Hamilton, Marshal of the Realm Svante Lindqvist and Speaker Urban Ahlin.
