Godparents for Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's Baby

What are Godparents Made of?
Truth and grace, spirit embraced
A hand to guide, a smile of pride
A tender heart, there from the start
Loyal and true, esteemed as few
That's what godparents are made of
Words of praise, true-hearted ways
Faith to bind, a promise through time
Prayers at night, joyful at light
Regarded role, Valued as gold
That's what godparents are made of
Guardian of light, fairness and right
Duty to lead, there in need
Hope and goodwill, values instilled
Affection and love, blessed from above
That's What Godparents are made of


For many, who to choose as a godparent for your child is just as important as picking your future spouse. Crown Princess Victoria has been honored with this role 12 times.

Who will Victoria and Daniel choose to be the godparent of their first born?

I think CP Haakon and CP Mette-Marrit will be a wonderful choice

I think CP Haakon is a sure thing.
Btw, do Swedes share that "annoying" (for the ones who are guessing the name that is) tradition of not telling the name of the baby until the baptism?

No, as far as I know it's just a danish tradition.

The godparents are easy to guess because regardless of the gender it's an heir who will be born. So there will be a whole bunch of current heirs among the godparents. And I'm pretty sure that the scandinavian heirs are among the godparents because they share a very tight friendship. On the other hand I don't think that Madeleine or Carl Philip will be among the godparents. They would be better for later kids who aren't that "important" so they need "important" heir godparents.

Does my last sentence make sense? I know exactly what I want to say but I'm not sure if you get what I mean.

Crown Princes Frederick & Haakon definitely and Mette Marit is a good guess. I figure the heir will have god parents of many of the other heirs to thrones. So throw in Pavlos of Greece, maybe Prince Charle or William, Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince Felipe and Prince Phillipe with Prince Mathilde also a possibility. And maybe the King or Queen of Sweden and her brother or sister.

Victoria is goodmother to alot of royal children so the possibilities are enormous.

I think only parents are to decide.As far as it concerns me,I don't think it's a good choice to make your siblings godparents of a child,as they are closest relatives and definitely they will have anyway very important role in the eyes of their future nephews/nieces.

Definitely Haakon, Frederik as they are very close with Victoria. Maybe WA as well. Especially since Beatrix is Victoria's is her goddaughter. And Mette Marit.

Charles and William I don't think so.

My predictions for Godparents

I am soo happy Crown Princess Victoria is pregnant. I had a feeling she was as she has been wearing loose clothing recently.

I believe they will choose Crown Prince Frederik and Haakon definately. Then possibly Crown Princess Mary and Mette-Marit, along with maybe Princess Maxima or Mathilde and maybe Pavlos. I love to have either the Duke or Duchess of Cambridge asked but I am not optimistic they will be as the Scandanavians are a tight group and the British royals dont really socialise with any others royals beside the Greeks.

Yeah I agree about Charles or William but I figured I put them as heir and heir presumptive to the throne.

Does anyone know who were Victoria's godparents.

Queen Beatrix is one. I believe there's an old thread here on TRF that has info on alot of royal children's christening and godparents. It's a bit more, with Catherine-Amalia's etc. but it does have older royal christenings. I'll see if I can find it again as it was closed.

And Daniel's sister and maybe a friend.

^yes i undertand you KitKat!!!
an heir is to be born, im sure it will be heirs of another countries and of course, maybe King Carl-Gustaf too!!!

as Victoria was godparent to Christian, Catharina-Amalia, Ingrid and Eleonore, im sure she will invite the parents of those as a matter of friendship and courtesy!!!

also, Victoria had 4 godparents as well as her brother and sister, its safe to say that the baby will also have 4 godparents.

Victoria's god parents are King Harald V of Norway, her maternal uncle, Ralf Sommerlath, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and her aunt Princess Désirée, Baroness Silfverschiöld.

I would even expect to see some of her maternal cousins as a godparent or two. She appears to be close to them as well as several of them have made her godmother to their children.

I can imagine that Victoria chooses half of the goodparents and Daniel chooses the other half.

I can see Daniel choosing Niklas Ek or someone else of his childhood friends. Who knows, maybe Victoria asks the duke and dutches of Cambridge.
