Well, not everyone is fluent with the swedish language. So don't blame them.

Is it just me or was this one of the most regal royal christenings? There is/was just something about it...

BTW Can any Swedish members tell me if the same sort of things happen in most Swedish christenings (such as the papers to the godparents, the candle, etc.)? Thanks

I don't understand the compulsion to choose a bunch of foreign royals you maybe see once or twice a year as your child's godparent. Why not pick some friends you see regularly?

Probably just me, but the idea of giving a 3 month old baby membership of an order of chivalry is just a tad silly.

Everyone looks good though. Victoria and Daniel are very obviously smitten with their daughter.

I guess it has either to do with religion and Spain being very conservative or with their "Just work, no fun" PR strategy (which of course has been ridiculed lately).
No I doubt they would have attended even if they were had no engagements today.

I don't know if it was the most regal but it certainly was a very elegant one. Victoria, Silvia, Madeleine, Mary, Mathilde, Maxima, Märtha Louise, Anna ... all looked very elegant (Maxima could have chosen a less loud colour though).

A very beautiful christening.

WA, Haakon and Mary are all close friends of Victoria's. They don't see each other once or twice a year, more often every month or even more. The Scandinavian royals are very close and visit each other on weekends apparently. They have chosen friends.

The continental (especially the Scandinavian and NL) royal ARE actually friends with each other. And Victoria visits her godchildren (which include C-A of the Netherlands, Ingrid-Alexandra of Norway, and Christian of Denmark) very often. Just because some royal families are more isolated doesn't mean the others are as well...
