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.

Do we know if Queen Fabiola have any royal godchildren?

(I was sure there was a thread for godchildren as well but I failed to find one.)

Queen Fabiola had a lot of godchildren but not in royal circles. Every seventh daughter, named Fabiola was adopted as godchild by the Queen. Every seventh son, named Baudouin was adopted as godchild by the King. So the couple litterally had hundreds of godchildren...

I do't think that the Portuguese RF was mentioned here. So here we go:

Dom Duarte, Duke of Braganza:
- Pope Pius XII
- Queen Amelie of Portugal, nee Princess of Orleans
- Infanta Adelgundes, Duchess of Guimarães; Princess of Bourbon-Parma and Countess of Bardi by marriage.

Prince Afonso, Prince of Beira, Duke of Barcelos:
- Afonso Miguel de Herédia
- Princess Elena of Bourbon-Two Sicilies.

Infanta Maria Francisca:
Dom Henrique, Duke of Coimbra
Princess Marie of Liechtenstein, nee Pss of Orleans

Infante Diniz, Duke of Porto:
- Sebastião de Castro Curvello de Herédia,
- Princess Anna Cecilia of Bourbon-Two-Sicilies

I have no idea who the godparents of dukes of Viseu and Coimbra are.

Archduke Ludwig of Austria (born November 11, 1998) had two godmothers: Furstin Maria Galitzine (sister of his father) and Cristina Lopez-Quesada (sister of his mother).

The godparents of Archduke Karl Pius of Austria were Pope Pius X and Infanta Adelgundes, Countess of Bardi.
