as long as you are christend/baptized into your own denomination ie roman catholic or CoE, it does not matter what type of church you go to or what church the child will be brought up in.

For this child to be in the line of succession he/she will have to be raised and confirmed in any religion besides Roman Catholic. As both the parents are now members of the CoE the child will surely be raised within that church.

I doubt if the Queen would be god-mother to her great-grandchild.

The Queen is seriously religious and would probably see the position of godparent as one that involves being involved somewhat in the child's life for the first 14-15 years at least.

Now we may all think that the Queen will live that long, and so might she, but she knows that there is a chance that as she gets older that she will be less able to carry out the duties of godparent and thus I doubt that she would take on that role now.

Does anyone else think that the child may have already been born but that no announcement has been made yet for some reason?

Agreed but if the child was born on Christmas Day I could easily see them waiting until the 'holiday' period is over before announcing and thus keeping that little secret just for themselves to enjoy over the Christmas period.

Unless the child was already at home and able to go to Sandringham I wouldn't have expected to see any of them at Sandringham while there was a chance the baby could be born, particularly given the weather in England at the moment.

But it's not Anne, nor Zara, (less Tim) who is on the point on giving birth; it's Autumn. On Nobless et Royautes it was written that Princess Royal spent the Eve with her daughter & her fiance.

As they all live in Gloucestershire I could imagine that they would get together somewhere on the day but most importantly, they were close to each other for when the baby is born - rather than have Peter and Autumn at Gatcombe and the rest of them across the country (sort of) in Norfolk. With the weather in the UK at the moment that is also important.

Godparents:
- Prince William
- Zara Phillips
- Chris Kelly
- a friend of Autumn

I'm pretty sure, that the grandparents or even greatgrandparents will not become godparents. People older than 50 years (like Anne e.g.) are rarely chosen as godparent - just my experience among protestant families. I don't know the reasons.

I believe the little girl is baptised in St. George's Chapel (Windsor) between 15. February and 15. March 2011.

I do not yet think about godparents for this baby girl. I only hope and worry about the child's name! For instance, I hope that the child is called something sensible like Patricia Anne and nothing like Zara or Columbus!!
