I was always quite sure that Haakon and Frederik will be chosen. The Norwegians had Frederik and Victoria for the firstborn, the Danes Haakon and Victoria (and Mette-Marit). But after the rather unusual name-choice perhaps there will also be an unusual godparents-choice? On the other hand it could also be that the name was chosen as a sort of "compensation" for NOT being chosen as a godmother.

I think Daniel's sister and Victoria's brother will most likely be godparents.

So, the Cambridges or Monaco princely couple are unlikely to become godparents, though it would be a nice idea.

Going by the new princess' name, I'd say Crown Princess Mary and Daniel's sister Anna are the godmothers, while Carl Philip and a male family friend are the godfathers.

Maybe for Her Royal Highness Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, Duchess of Östergötland as godparents Victoria and Daniel will choose crown princess Mary of Denmark and queen Silvia and the other two will consist of daniel's family.

Shouldnt the title reead: Godparents for Princess Estelle other than Crown Prince Mary of Denmark? I think its safe to assume that she will be one of the godparents.

As for the others: One from Daniels side atleast, atleast one more royal, friends of the couple that are not royals.

Because little Estelle is in direct line to be queen regnant, I think the list of her godparents will include at least 2 others in direct line for king or queen regnant. Haakon and Willam-Alexander perhaps

The Cambridges are very unlikely, I don't think they met more then once, and that was their wedding were they talked for maybe 10 seconds and I'm already stretching that out.

With their choice of the name, I'm willing to belive that maybe there will be also a bit not so traditional choice of the number of godparents, well at least in the previous generation. I'd say both Haakon & Frederik with wifes, Anna Westling Söderström and Prince Carl Philip.

Crown Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands
Crown Prince Fredrik and/or Crown Princess Mary of Denmark
Prince Carl Philip/Princess Madeleine
Anna Westling

Perhaps Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands

Not sure how close the Swedish and Spanish Royals are, so I'd say it's unlikely. Though Prince Felipe is a godfather of Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway, I believe.

I just don't understand why some European royals find it appropriate to name other royals that they might see once a year, twice at most, as godparents to their children. I mean, why not give the honour to friends and family that you actually see on a regular basis and don't live hundreds of miles away?

Article in Expressen speculates about the christening.

The christening will likely be in 2 or 3 months and likely be held in the Royal Palace Church (or if they want more guests than 450 it will likely be held in the cathedral). My guess for godparents to Princess Estelle are
1. The Crown Prince of Norway
2. The Crown Princess of Denmark
3. The Prince of Orange
4. Prince Carl Philip
5. Anna Westling Söderström

Very good guesses and I would've pretty much suggested the same. If (which is probable) Mary is chosen this time, do you think Frederik will be asked the next time..? I know Victoria and Daniel are close friends with all of the Crown prince couples.

I'm sure Frederik will be asked later if he isn't asked now. Same with Princess Märtha-Louise of Norway and Prince Nicholaos of Greece. There is also a possibility that they might ask both Haakon and Mette-Marit as well as Frederik and Mary. The King had both Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Ingrid of Denmark as well as the swedish Crown Prince couple Gustaf Adolf and Louise as godparents.
