I keep hoping that Sofia will refuse her invitation" - if she ever got one.

Oh yes, I had forgetten about them and there is Great Britain as well. The officials at the Swedish Palace seem a bit inept so I am hoping that the omission of Monaco, Spain etc from the list has just been a mistake. At the end of the day I see no reason why they wouldn't be invited, especially Spain and the U.K as major Monarchies.

It has been confirmed that both Sofia and Chris did get invited to Christening.
Somehow, I can't see either turning it down, certainly not Sofia.

They might have been invited but turned down the invitation. Victoria and Felipe are good friends so i doubt she has forgot him.
We will see tomorrow

Presumably because none of them will be a godparent and Victoria is not a godparent to any of their children. There is also no one from the UK or Liechtenstein. I don't think anyone is being slighted or snubbed.

But if you look at the number of Royal Families on that list there can't be a godparent coming from all of them. I am keeping my fingers crossed anyway!

Victoria has a lot of godchildren, including children in Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark & Norway so she may have invited their family members even if they are not to be godparents. Not sure if she has any from Luxembourg but don't believe so.

I bet CP Wilhem-Alexander is very happy at being Princess Estelle's godfather, is this his 1st godchild?

Will any of the Greek Royals be in attendance? I think Victoria is godmother to one of CP Pavlos' five children. And she was once close with Nikolaos if I remember correctly.

Perhaps they were invited but could not attend. Felipe and Letizia have a busy schedule and Spain is far away. Felipe is godfather to Ingrid Alexandra of Norway and Prince Vincent of Denmark, but I don't think he attended either christening, IIRC.

I'm really mad that it'll be 3am here. I guess I'll have to catch it later tomorrow.

Oh yes! I have been taken with this young woman, too - quite unexpectedly - and I agree - would love to see her again.

It is really too bad about the "live ins" because they will detract attention. It's not a question of conservative, etc. because living together has become a "pre-engagement" step in a lot of royalty circles.
Certainly, Sofia seems to be getting a much speedier acceptance treatment than Daniel did, to my knowledge.

I find her fascinating too, for reasons I can't quite put my finger on. She and Guillaume seem like a throwback to a more romantic and traditional time. I adore how they interact as a couple.

Anyway I am delighted to get another glimpse of them at a huge Royal event like Estelle's christening...I thought we might not see Stephanie again till later on this summer.

Daniel is the spouse of the Crown Princess and therefore will play a much more important role in the monarchy than the spouses of Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeline. It makes sense to me that it took longer to recognize him as Victoria's partner- the pair of them are the real future of the monarchy.

I'm sure the focus of the day will still be on Princess Estelle and her parents, and not on who her aunt and uncle bring as their dates.

All spanish royals (the king, the queen, Felipe and Letizia) have work engagements in Spain today.

Expressen writes that the closest and the godparents were invited to a private dinner in Haga Palace yesterday evening. A photo of Willem-Alexander and Maxima arriving.

The reporter of finnish Iltalehti told just on MTV3, that he got into the church during the rehearsal yesterday, they were rehearsing the camera angles. Victoria looked relaxed, he saw also Carl Philip at the church.

Östergötland's gifts to Estelle: a blue bowl and a necklace, photos:
