Hi,
I have been a guest for some time and finally decided to join. This is is my first posting so I hope I am doing it right.

My question is where are Pia and Alexandra. Usually at least one of them shows up for big family events such as this. If they were there, they missed all of the photo opps. I wonder if Marie-Chantal, who seems to have a happy marriage and a successful business is starting to break out into her own.

Being a parent is different, separate and distinct from being a husband. Who says that Arki Busson isn't a good father to his and Elle MacPhereson's sons just because he and Elle are not married? Marriage is not for everyone; it is unfair to impose the institution of marriage on everybody as a norm or an expectation or requirement.

And let's face it: What kind of a role or how much of a role do you expect any of the godparents to play in the life of Odysseas or the godparents of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal's other children? When was the last time you saw a picture or read about Sweden's Victoria playing with Konstantin, to whom she is a godmother?

It forgives my bad English
I have a doubt, is on one of the godfathers of the Odysseas, Arki Busson... says here that it is the boyfriend of the Elle MacPherson, but the name of the Elle's boyfriend, that I see in the sites, is Arpad Busson, and not Arki... will not be that you had confused... or I'm made a mistake?

I think the above link gives your answer. It's the same person. Arki is a nickname. Also, it says that he is into hedge fund managment. Isn't that the same thing that Prince Pavlos is in? I'm guessing either they work together or Arki helped Pavlos start his business.

Marie-Chantal and Arpad also went to the same Swiss boarding school as kids, so they could've have already known one another from then.

Btw. I like what Marie-Chantal wore to the christening, i thought that it was nice, casual and perfect for a summer's day.
Mette-Marit and her evening wear, definately a very positive change, she looked absolutely spectacular.
Marie-Chantal and her choice of the Valentino gown? Very nice in my opinion, but it looked as though she was showing a bit too much skin. But hey, that's just a personal preference.

I'm not sure but I belive that MC is very close with Elle Macpherson. She and Arki have two children together and were dating for many years until they announced their split just yesterday.

I agree that she looked nice for a summer's day but for a christening, especially her son's christening I think she should have chosen a more conservative dress.

There are a few more photos of the baptism at the Greek Life & Style website. These are from inside the church. I love the lighting in the one of M-C, O-K, and the priest.

What great pics Samitude! I'm not sure how long they keep the photos up on their website, so I thought I'd attach them here. The cover of the mag of the whole family is probably my favorite!

Is there a clearer picture of Odysseas with his godparents? There's usually a group shot, isn't there?
Yeah, I do wonder where Pia and Alexandra were, maybe they were just there but weren't photographed? but even if that happened, if would've been very strange.

Actually, Maria-Olympia's christening took place in Istanbul, Turkey as opposed to London where her two younger brothers were christened.

She was christened in Istanbul? I didn't know that.
Why was she christened there?

I'm surprised that this baptism was not such a lavish affair.
