Nope we don't if he has, but then we don't know that he hasn't.

I don't see that it matters at all really. For instance I have no idea who my godparents are at all and never did so obviously they weren't a part of my life. I'm betting many people fall into that same category. These days I think that being a godparent is something you do to honor someone in your life but doesn't have real significance in the life of the child.

I think the scandinavian royals will be favored by Vict
oria and Daniel as godparents of this future queen of Sweden:

Prince Carl Philip
Daniel's Sister
Crown Prince Haakon
Crown Princess Mette-Marit
Crown Prince Frederik
Crown Princess Mary
Friends of the couple

My guess is:

- Prince Carl Philip
- Anna Soderstrom (Daniel's sister)
- Crown Prince Haakon of Norway
- Crown Princess Mary of Denmark
- A member of the Dutch Royal Family (Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, Crown Princess Maxima or Princess Mabel)
- A friend of the couple's

16th May (if confirmed) would be an odd day since Mary & Fred are supposed to be on official visit to South Korea until the 15th - no matter if Mary becomes a godmother or not (many posters are betting on it because of the choice of name) I couldnt imagine a Swedish christening without the Denmark CPs attending.

I agree, even if Mary (or Frederik) isn't gonna be a godmother, it would be weird without their attendance.

But if CP Frederik and CPss Mary are in South Korea until the 15th, wouldn´t that mean that they will be back on the 16th? Perhaps flying in to Stockholm from South Korea

Bertil Ternert said about the 16th May: I can say that it is wrong. It has been a preliminary date, but that day there will be no baptism. And I can not say when it will be because everything has not yet fallen into place. Once everything has been done so we go out with the date, it is not something we will keep secret because it is an official event, he says to Expressen reporter Tommy Schönstedt.

Thank you, LadyFinn!
I imagine the Christening will be some time close to the date though, probably after Mary 20. Hopefully, there will be more information soon.
EDIT: And now we have the official Christening date - 22 May! Thanks to MagMil for ending the long wait.

I think they will announce the godparents, one day before or in the day of christening.
My opinion :
- Princess Madeleine
- either CP Haakon and CP Mette-Marit, or both of them
- CP Frederik
- Pr Willem-Alexander
- Pr Mathilde
- Daniel's sister

I guess we can exclude Mette-Marit from the list of possible Godmothers since it looks like she won't be attending the Christening at all.
According to the information posted by JessRulz in the Christening thread, Norway will be represented by Haakon, Martha Louise and Ari.

Pity, I was rather waiting forward to seeing all (or most of) the Crown Princely couples together.
I also thought it extremely likely Mette-Marit will be one of the Godmothers.

I guess Crown Princess Mette-Marit is out this time. I wonder how many godparents will be chosen. If Victoria follows the 'pattern' of her own godparents, it would be:
Crown Prince Haakon
The Prince of Orange
Prince Carl Philip or Princess Madeleine
Anna Westling

Additional or alternative godparents:
Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Philippe, Princess Mathilde, Princess Maxima, Princess Martha Louise, possibly Prince Felipe

i dont think we can discount Mette-Marit as a godmother just because she isnt going.

other royals have been named godparents but could not make it to the baptism.

for example, Prince Felipe of Spain is one of the godparents for Vincent of Denmark and Felipe was not at the ceremony.
