Following the pattern of this generation....

...then VicDan's child would have only four godparents. But that is not any long-standing tradition. King Carl XVI Gustaf had ten!

That being said, if there were only four, it would most likely be the following:

1. CP Haakon (other Scandinavian heir)
2. CP Frederik (other Scandinavian heir)
3. Prince Carl Philip or Princess Madeleine (paternal uncle or aunt)
4. Anna Westling (maternal aunt)

This seems closest to the selections used for the godparents of CP Victoria and her siblings.

If they select more than four, the list could include any other combination of VicDan's siblings, cousins, close friends, other reigning monarchs or heirs/spouses (most likely Willem-Alexander), etc. I would hope that if there are any other royals in addition to the two already mentioned that it would include potential godmothers who have demonstrated that they are similar in temperament/mothering style to what I believe Victoria will be (Maxima, Mette-Marit) or who seems to be a calm, professional, good example (Mathilde); or for potential godfathers ones who seem professional and relatively scandal-free (Philippe, Felipe, Guillaume - even though they are all Catholics).

Well, they're probably not going to use up all the potential godparents at once. They'll probably 'save' some for children they have later.

I dout both Fredrik and Haakon will be chosen together but sure,one of them will be.If t will be fredrik(likely),sure,Mette Marit will be the godmother and vice versa when Haakon will be chosen,Mary will be the godmother.
Carl philip or Madeleine will be among the godparents and for sure one of Daniel relatives.

After seeing Haakon & MM's anniversary service, I definately think that both of them will be asked. As for the rest, maybe Haakon's sister and either Frederick or Mary, but not both.

The first child of the crownprincess couple will presumably be the heir to the throne and as such the god parents will most likely be one or two of the crownprinces in line to a throne and Madeleine and Daniel's sister.

If comparing with the godparents of Victoria (and her siblings), I would guess one male and one female royal and one male and one female sibling.

i think the baby will definitely have a long list of godparents!

definitely, princess madeleine or prince carl philippe will be chosen.
plus: haakon, frederik, maybe willem alexander, maybe philippe of belgium (i am doubtful about their wives being chosen).
plus: a friend of victoria, a friend of daniel and daniel's sister.

Sorry to correct you but CP and Maddy are the baby's maternal aunt and Uncle, as maternal means from the mother. And Anna is the baby's paternal aunt, meaning from the father. Not the other way around.

As for godparents, I think there will likely be 5, the tradition now a days with royal babies. And as the future heir to the throne, likely a lot of royal godparents. I think if a boy, 3 godfathers, and 2 godmothers, and other way if girl. There may be 6, perhaps a family friend, but I see that being left to a second child.

if a boy

Haakon
Fred
Wilhelm-Alexander
Anna
Madeline

Haakon and Fred are close to Vik, and Vik is godmother to WA's heir

if a girl

Haakon
Fred
Anna
Madeline
Maxima

How about Princess Madeline and Prince Carl Phillip as one set of godparents. The other could be Prince William and Kate. Or perhaps CP Haakon and Mette Maritt. Or perhaps one sibling of both CP Victoria and Prince Daniel.

I just curious about something. Could someone who was not royal or related to the royal family be a godparent (a good friend of either CP Victoria or Prince Daniel).

Why on earth would they ask William and Kate as godparents? They probably only met them at one or two occassions. William rarely visit any event on the continent, let alone a royal event there, so they should hardly know each other.

I would be very surprised if William or Kate would be choosen as godparents, I don't know if they have met Victora and Daniel more than at the British wedding. If any British royal would be choosen it would be one of the Wessex, as they have met eachothers quite often, Sophie would be an excellent choice for a second or third child.

As godparents for the firstborn and future heir, the couple will most likely ask personal royal friends and family, perhaps Frederik and Mette-Marit or Haakon and Mary, and then one paternal and one maternal sibling, most likely Carl-Philip and Anna Westling. I doubt that they will have both Carl-Philip and Madeleine at the same time, as I think they are hoping for more children and want to "save" a sibling for the next child.

I don't think that a non-royal friend will be choosen for the future heir, but very likely for a second and/or third child, especially as Daniel doesn't have more than one sibling.

Maybe she will choose one of her cousins crown prince Fredrick and crown princess Mary of Denmark or crown prince haakon and crown princess Mette marit of Norway or maybe even prince willem Alexander and princess maxima of the Netherlands since she is very good friends with all of them .

Does anyone know how long after the birth of members of the Swedish Royal Family are christened?

Also, are all the members of Swedish Royal Family christened in the chapel of the Royal Palace in Stockholm?

In Denmark, it is about three months in the current generation(i.e. all the Queen Margrethe II's grandchildren).

1. Crown Princess Victoria was born on 14:th july and christened on 27:th spetember. Prince Carl Philip was born on 13:th may and christened 31:th august. Princess Madeleine was born on 10:th june and also christened on 31:th august. Our King was born on 30:th april and christened 7:th june.

2. Yes most of them are christened at the royal palace chapel in Stockholm. King Gustaf VI Adolf and King Oscar II was christened in "Vita Havet Ballroom" at the royal palace in Stockholm.

I don´t think there will be a lot of godparents. Maybe 5 but not more than 8. If they follow the same procedure as when they choosed Victorias godparents, they will be Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, one of W-A or Maxima from Netherlands, Prince Carl Philip and Daniels sister Mrs Anna Westling Söderström (she has remarried so her name is not Blom anymore).
I would be surprised if no one from Denmark was asked too as they are both close friends and close relatives.
I´m sure that there will be someone from Netherlands too. Victoria is godmother to Catharina-Amalia, Beatrix is godmother to Victoria and Juliana was godmother to our King so there is a close connection.

I´m guessing at 5 godparents
1. Crown Prince Haakon of Norway
2. One of Willem-Alexander or Maxima from Netherlands
3. One of Frederik or Mary from Denmark
4. Prince Carl Philip of Sweden
5. Mrs Anna Westling Söderström

I agree, if any British royal is chosen it should be Edward or Sophie, more so Sophie, as they have known Victoria for several years. They are the only ones to attend European Royal gatherings, so they have socialised with Victoria more than William. I would love to see Sophie chosen, though I doubt it would be for their firstborn as Sophie is not going to be Queen.

I can see Haakon or Mette-Marit being selected, along with Mary or Phillipe. It will no doubt consist of many heirs-to-thrones in the line-up, which is why Sophie would never be chosen. She would make a lovely godmother though, I don't think she is godmother to any Royals. I know Edward is Prince Nikolai's godfather. (Side note, I didn't know til recently that Princess Anne is Prince Haakon's godmother.)

I can't wait for this birth, I am so excited to know names and godparents.
