It seems especially strange how private it is given that, as things stand now, Prince Liam's father and sister are the heirs to the throne after Guillaume (not that G&S won't have children in the future, but it's just as possible that they will not as it is that they will). Liam could possibly one day be the son and sister to the Grand Duke/Grand Duchess of Luxembourg and we don't even know who his godparents are? Strange.

It's all very strange. In the first few months of Princess Amalia's life the Royal House released some photographs of Amalia, and the press was present at her baptism. With Prince Liam everything is different, they did not divulge photographs of the baptized, do not know who are the godparents, are not released new photos of the child, nothing ... I do not understand what is happening.

I get the sense with Amalia they felt they were required. Amalia was, and still is, her uncles heir (well her dad in between for however long he may out live his brother). Of course there is always hope the couple will have their own. But this is reality. So the baptism was made formal, with photographs, and godparents known.

With Liam they have a bit more freedom for him to be private. I do think we will get some photos eventually.

Brittani Barger, an editor for Royal Central, tweeted:
"Grand Ducal Court has said that info, godparents and pics from Prince Liam's baptism last Saturday at the Vatican will be released soon."

That is a good guess. Princess Amalia is -as long as her uncle Prince Guillaume has no issue- in the direct line of succession after her father. I can imagine that then the "required" publicity is what more urgent than with her younger brother Prince Liam.

Photographs of the christening on Saturday:
Luxemburger Wort

http://www.wort.lu/de/panorama/zerem...e74263e13bcf71

It appears from the photos Prince Sebastien was Liam's godfather. I believe the godmother is Anna Maria Pamin, she was one of Claire's bridesmaids/witnesses at the couple's wedding.

Thanks Jess! Lovely photos. I see that the prince of Windisch-Graetz and his wife Archduchess Sofia are seated behind the Liechtensteins. Prince Lelio Orsini is sitting behind the HGD. The HGD was playing the guitar.

Both the Grand Duchess as Mrs. Lademacher are looking elegant.

It appears from the photos Prince Sebastien was Liam's godfather - I don't know who the blonde godmother is, and she is not named in the article.
Anna Maria Pamin is the godmother, according to this article. If I understand it correctly...

Lovely photos! Looks like it was a very intimate an family oriented event. I also noticed that the HGD was playing guitar. It would have been really interesting to hear him play!

The venue is stunning. This is where -every day- the canons and the priests of the Basilica assemble together to sing the praises of the Holy Trinity in chorus. Their magic Gregorian chants then fill the whole enormous space.

It looks like the priest was visually impaired. He was struggling with the liturgy booklet. The Grand-Duchess has never looked so well for years! Wow, her new health-regime works wonders!

Yes, Prince Sébastien and Anna Maria Pamin were the godparents.

great pics!

prince liam is already very grown up. he looks different to his sister too. i get the impression he will take after the grand duke.

agreed! the grand duchess definitely looks great. she seems to have lost weight and that also seems to make her look younger. good for her!

claire is looking great herself, despite being a full time mum of two.

nice to see that uncle guillaume played guitar during the ceremony. sweet gesture indicative of the intimate nature of the event. sad to see gabriel and noah weren't present because of their academic commitments though.

Anna Maria Pamin was apparently one of the bridesmaids at the wedding. it looks like she is the second woman from the right in this picture:

Princess Amalia is adorable, and little Liam has gotten huge.

Claire looks radiant, absolutely stunning.

And yes I agree with everyone who posted that the setting itself is spectacular.

The mother and both grandmothers were in white, was that a requirement? Too bad they put those black shoes on the baby, otherwise a visual delight
