No, Victoria had no monarchs, only future monarchs, as her godparents, she was baptized in 1977, Beatrix became queen in 1980 and Harald king in 1991.

It's been mentioned before on one of the first pages but I still think one more time doesn't hurt. For those who can receive german TV:

ZDF will broadcast the christning live from 10.30 until 12:00 german time. That's about 10 Minutes from now for those who're to lazy to do the math with the time zones (which I totally understand, because I never like things like this, too)

In order to shorten the time spent waiting -
Swedish SVT has put up a great video of CP Victoria's 1979 christening for all to see:

And even if they wouldn't have work engagements in Spain they wouldn't attend. They never have, even when chosen as godparent.
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).

In addition, they do not invite other royals to their own christenings and chose godparents among the family, eg Leonor as future Queen has her own grandparents (Kings of Spain) as godparents.

Thank you!
I read that Queen Beatrix is also Victoria´s godmother, so it must be a kind of tradition, lovely.
