King Juan Carlos of Spain's godparents were his paternal grandmother, Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, and his maternal grandfather, Infante Carlos, Prince of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.

The Prince of Asturias' godparents are his paternal great-grandmother Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain (also godmother of Juan Carlos) and his paternal grandfather (and Victoria Eugenia's son) Infante Juan, Count of Barcelona.

These are wonderful pictures. Thank you so much sharing them with us. I have never seen them before. I am so conviced that the Swedish Crown Princess will be a perfect mother, just as Mathilde is :-)

Hahahaha, you may be right :-) But I am sure the Swedish Royal House PR department will make us believe she will be one perfect happy mother (which I truefully hope she will be) but who knows what is going on behind closed doors? :-)

I find it strange how few members of the BRF are chosen to be godparents: HM,the Earl of Wessex,the late princess Diana and the duke of Edinburgh are just some but I find that Constantine II is by far a popular godfather.

Maybe you mean that they're not popular as godparents to other european royal children? As we know the BRF are notoriously distant with royal houses on the continent.

Thank you. These are very sweet. Victoria seems to be quite involved with her godchildren.

Not quite sure what you mean here. Each member of the BRF seem to have a number of godchildren, although they are largely from British families. I suspect part of the reason for fewer foreign royal godchildren would be the distance the BRF maintain from their continental relations and also the BRF are a bit older than the current crop of continental royal parents.

I don't know if this was mentioned on the thread or not, but Prince William is one of the godparents to Constantine Alexios (a grandson I believe of King Constantine of Greece). I remember seeing pictures of him and Princess Madeleine of Sweden at the Baptism in the summer of 1999.

There are no Rosie Bush (Peter Phillips' goddaughter) on this list.

And I read on some site (I cannot find it now) that Prince of Wales is the godfather of a posthumous daughter of major Hugh Lindsay who was killed by an avalanche during a winter vacation in Switzerland in 1988 (Prince Charles was also there, Princess Diana and Duchess of York)
