Prince Felipe's Godchildren

I read Felipe is the godfather of

MARIA de las Mercedes Fernandez y Gomez-Acebo (*17.01.2000), daughter of his cousin (?) Maria de Fatima SIMONETA Luisa Gomez-Acebo y de Borbon (*28.10.1968) & Jose Miguel Fernandez y Sastron (*14.10.1959)

and of

VICTORIA Federica de Todos los Santos de Marichalar y de Borbon (*09.09.2000), daughter of his sister Elena & Jaime de Marichalar


Has he got more godchildren?

I'm also searching for picutres of the godchildren & the christenings

As I am becoming a godmother in two days, there is no offical duty I think, but you´re actually supposed to "teach your godchild how to be a good christian". And of course you have to give presents to them on Christmas...

Prince Felipe is also going to be godfather of little Luis Felipe, the son of his cousin Beltrán Gomez-Acebo and Laura Ponte.

You are supposed to be responsible for the children's spiritual well-being, teach them about their faith and see to it that they practice it regularly.

Many godparents also remember special days in the lives of their godchildren such as birthdays, christmas and other holidays, marriages, graduations and so on.

When one of my close friends got married she chose to have her godfather give her away instead of her stepfather of a few years, because her godfather had been one of her late father's closest friends.

I think it is very different when your godparents are siblings of your parents or close friends of your parents. If they see you on a regular basis it is easier for them to be a significant presence in your life.

Another moral duty is to substitute the child's parents, in case of their death.

That's very true. But, not many people do that these days. More conscientious people may choose a godparent or have already chosen those who they would like to be their children's guardain in event of their deaths.
