I have a question: how many godparents are they supposed to have? I have been raised catholic, and I have always beleived that catholic christenings allow 2 godparents ... Therefore, in ths case the twins are going to have four, two each...

A Baby christened in the catholic religion may have one couple of godparents but he can have more than a couple of godparents, my granddaughter has two godmothers and two godfathers
The princely children may have many godmothers and godfathers.
Albert, Caroline and Stéphanie had only a couple of godparents

I thought that Albert had only one godparent- Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain. Who was his godfather then?

Finally we have a date! I am excited to see who they pick as Godparents. I will be disappointed if they don't pick any foreign Royals.

I have envisaged them having royal godparents since they were born so I will also be disappointed if there aren't any

I will not be desappointed if the godparents are not royal. the heir princess Elizabeth of Belgium has no royal godparents as prince Georges of Cambridge .
I will be very happy to Watch this big ceremony at the cathedral in live on Monaco channel.
The palace will give the names of the godparents later, no matter who would they be , it will be a beautiful event in Monaco.

Acutally Princess Elisabeth has heir first cosuin Prince Amedeo Archduke of Austria-Este as godfather. I think this was quiet a nice gesture as he would have been the heir if Philippe had no children. Perhaps Albert and Charlene will do the same and Andrea becomes godfather of Prince Jacques.

I might very well be wrong, but for godparents i'm still sticking with Albert's two sisters and Charlene's two brothers (for each baby one of the women and one of the men). I'd be very disappointed if no family members are godparents...

If they choose any royal godparents, I think they will go for Máxima for Gabriella and Felipe for Jacques. A King regent for the heir and a Queen consort for the spare. I hope they make Caroline godmother to one of them as well. That's the least they can do after so many years of hard work as de facto first lady and heiress presumptive.

Looking at the above comments and choices I would like as godparents for P Jacques King Felipe, P Caroline, brother Sean Wittstock and Franci von Almsick. For P Gabriella Q Maxima, P Stephanie, Gareth Wittstock and Novak Djokovic. Why Franci and Novak? They are both sportspeople/athletes and close friends of the couple. They also have young children themselves as the Wittstock brothers do.

Outwith family and friends it would be lovely to see royal godparents for both children. For Jacques I would love Queen Maxima and the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg and for Gabriella the Crown Prince of Norway and the Countess of Wessex. I say these names because they seem to be royals who have a particular friendship with Albert and Charlene.

Why? What difference would it make. There is nothing special about "royal", today. They are no better than their aunts, cousins or friends that they make like.

The twins will more than likely have both Royal/aristocrat and non-Royal godparents.

It sounds like TSH's will go big for this event...can't wait!

Albert, Caroline and Stéphanie had only a couple of godparents
Princess Caroline's godmother was her cousin,Margaret Davies and her godfather was a Hungarian HSH Prince Georg Festetics. (hope I spelt it correct,not sure if he is still alive?)

Princess Stepahnie's godmother is her cousin,Baroness Elisabeth Anne de Massy and her godfather was her uncle, John Brendan Kelly Jr.

There will big events in Monaco this year, christening of Prince Gabriella and prince Jacques in May, the celebration of the ten years of reign of Prince Albert and perhaps the civil wedding of Pierre Casiraghi during this summer.

In this article, there are more détails


Albert et Charlène de Monaco : les détails sur le baptême princier des jumeaux


The couple will walk from the cathedeale to the palace after the mass and for godmother Charlotte Casiraghi and Gareth Wittstock, the brother of Princess Charlene as godfather .
I don't believe the names of the godparents but who knows?

If they want to stick to the tradition the will choose 4 godparents, 2 for each child. This is the traditional number for a catholic christening. I'd say two women and two men, and two for each side of the family. I think that may be a safe bet

That's true I had forgotten that its the 10th anniversary of Albert II's accession,with the Christening a little over a month later.
