SVT to reconsider its decision not to send Prince Nicolas baptism.
– Many viewers have heard of , and said that they absolutely want to see the ceremony, and something that made an impression there, many said that they do not have a fast broadband connection and therefore can not see it online.

The viewer will be involved within the Drottningholm Castle, Church and take part in the ceremony and what’s important, says Clara Mannheimer.
“We are very happy”
The baptism will be broadcast on BBC1 and SVT Play at 11:50 on 11 October.
