Archduke Lorenz of Austria-Este, Prince of Belgium

Princess Margaretha was princess of Sweden and Norway by birth, later princess of Sweden, and princess of Denmark by marriage. Her title after her marriage was: Hendes Kongelige Højhed prinsesse Margaretha af Danmark.

Princess Michael of Kent is a godmother to Princess Maria Chiara of Bourbon-Two Sicilies. Maria Chiara's father, Carlo, is also a godfather to Princess Josephine of Denmark.

Also, The Earl of Wessex is a godfather to Prince Nikolai of Denmark.

Yes, King Albert II of the Belgians is indeed the godfather of his nephew Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg.
Henri's godmother is his paternal aunt, Princess Marie Gabrielle of Luxembourg.

According to Wikipedia, The Prince of Wales is a godfather to Lady Sarah Chatto's eldest son, Samuel Chatto. I'm probably really late to the party, but I honestly didn't know that. That's so lovely, it seems that Charles and Sarah are quite close.

Thanks for the link Archduchess Zelia. I too didn't know that, and Charles being a godfather to Princess Maria-Olimpia of Greece, Lord Nicolas Windsor and the Earl of Ulster is also new to me.

Historically, Mary I's godparents were Catherine of York, Thomas Wolsey and Agnes Howard, Duchess of Norfolk. Elizabeth I's godparents were Thomas Cranmer, Henry Courtenay, Marquess of Exeter, Elizabeth Howard, Duchess of Norfolk and Margaret Wotton, Dowager Marchioness of Dorset. Edward VI's godparents were his sisters Mary and Elizabeth.

Princess Beatrix's godparents are Leopold III of Belgium, Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, Elisabeth, Princess of Erbach-Schönberg, Duke Adolf Friedrich of Mecklenberg and Countess Allene de Kotzebue.

When a royal son or daughter has godparents, is it a religious and a royal rule that any godparent of the child must be the same religion as the child? For example: Princess Nora of Liechtenstein, a Catholic, is a godmother of Princess Laetitia-Maria of Belgium, a Catholic.

Depends on the rules of the religion in the individual countries, I guess. Crown Princess Victoria (a lutheran-protestant) is godmother to Princess Eléonore of Belgium (a catholic), but Eléonore has two catholic godparents, Princess Claire of Belgium, and Count Sébastien von Westphalen zu Fürstenberg, as well. The Prince of Asturias (catholic) is also godfather to Prince Vincent of Denmark (a lutheran-protestant).

Typically Christian religion require that one of the child's godparents be of that religion, but not all of them have to be. So, if a royal baby is baptized Catholic and has 6 godparents, it's not a big deal if some of them aren't Catholic so long as some of them are.
