When you say they have no moral character do you mean out of wedlock children? Because Gareth is not married to the mother of his child. So in your opinion what kimd of moral character does he have?

I've read that Jacques will be given the Grand Cross of the Order of Grimaldi and Gabriella will be made a Grand Officer of the Order of Grimaldi.

Jacques' godparents will be made Officers of the Order of Saint-Charles and Gabriella's godparents will be made Officers of the Order of Grimaldi.

Jacques and Gabriella are their children, they chose the persons who are the most close to them. they have their reasons, We must accept.

This gallery has pictures of all the godparents. But they mistakenly also included Chris LeVine sr and not his son. Definitely a younger set of godparents! I feel the P Caroline and P Stephanie may be more like grandmothers in their lives rather than godparents...

The Pienaars are a highly respected couple in SA, but I didn't know that they were so close to the P Albert and P Charlene

I dont understand Chris Levine is the godfather not his son?

I am confused now, too, whether the godfather is Chris LeVine, P Albert's best man, or his son. It seems posters differ in their opinions on this one. We'll see for sure on Sunday!

Chris LeVine the best man is indeed D. Christopher LeVine, Jr. It's not his son.

Thanks Noble Consort Ming...I read it incorrectly.

If it's true that Chris LeVine Sr. got the nod it's proof that age was not a factor. Chris Sr. is nearing or at 60 years of age.

I think giving one baby higher honors then the other is a bit strange, heir or no heir.

No big name for at least the Hereditary Prince? Weird tbh. It's their choice of course, but considering Albert had a Queen as godmother, it's underwhelming.

At that times, in 1958,Queen Victoria Eugénie was no more, she was a former queen in exil who lived between Monaco and Genève.

I think it is nice that they went with close friends and relatives as godparents. They do the same in the other catholic monarchies. The same goes for prince George of Cambridge (and most likely for his sister). Considering the idea of a godparent is that they actually play a role in the life and upbringing of the child, I find it logical that they actually picked people who most likely will be involved in the lives of the children.

The habit of picking a vast range of royals as godparents looks a bit cosmetic to me and seems to be the case only in Scandinavia. The Dutch king and queen picked 1 foreign royal for their children. I suppose it is also easier for the protestants as they can pick so many godparents while the catholics can only ask two.

There is a difference between a quenn in exil and a queen who is a reigning queen. she is no more recognized by her country which became a republic. She has no more rights as she has before. She is less prestigious.

Exactly my thoughts. Especially considering that Gabriella is the oldest of the two.

The fact that they didn't change the male primogeniture before the twins were born, shows that they do not care a lot about gender discrimination.

I am looking forward to see the whole family at the baptism

They picked people they're close to. Personally, I find it a bit peculiar they haven't chosen a closer member of the immediate Grimaldi family. As to Victoria Eugenia she was a Queen, she was born royal - doesn't matter that she was in exile. For more "prestigious" than the wife of a former rugby captain (as wonderful as she may be) and a former computer salesman, who is so tacky, he has his sister's crest as a tattoo.

Perhaps, they wanted people they love and mean something to them, not just a name.

Although, I would have thought they might be able to find someone they love and are close to in the immediate Grimaldi family...

It is their choice , they chose the persons they love It is good for Jacques and Gabriella to have an another link with other persons who belong to their family but not only to the Grimaldi family.
