Well, I have two news about the christening.
1) in hello magazine of Louise presentation say what the christening will be for Easter april 11 in Windsor.
2) in the page Hause Wessex in section News the christening will be in march.
In official page of royal family nothing about this.

Louise cannot change her title back to "Princess" as The Queen signed a "Letters Patent", a legal document which removed Louise's Royal title. It can only be restored by the Monarch of the day, either Louise's grandmother The Queen or her Uncle Charles if he becomes King. This however is highly unlikley as the Royal Family rarely go back on a decision once it has been made.
Louise CAN change back to Princess (well not change back since she IS a princess anyway) as the Queen HASN'T signed a letters patent.

By Peter Archer, Court Correspondent, PA News


The Queen’s latest grandchild is to be christened later this month at Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace announced today.

Lady Louise Windsor, the six-month-old daughter of Edward and Sophie, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, will be baptised in the castle’s private chapel on Saturday, April 24.

Society photographer Lord Patrick Lichfield, the Queen’s cousin, will take the official christening photograph.

Louise, who was born prematurely on November 8 last year, has five godparents. They are:

Lady Sarah Chatto, daughter of Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, and the Earl’s cousin.

Lord Ivor Mountbatten, grandson of Lord Mountbatten of Burma, and also the Earl’s cousin. Edward and Sophie are godparents to his children, Ella and Alix.

Lady Alexandra Etherington, another of the Earl’s cousins. The Countess is godmother to her daughter, Amelia.

Francesca Schwarzenbach, a friend of both Edward and Sophie.

Rupert Elliott, Cambridge University friend of the Earl who is godfather to his son, Hector.

why would they?? Friso's wedding isn't a grand event anymore, after the scandals. It is a "private" wedding and I espect not many royals there....

I doubt there will be any British representatives there. The only likely possibilities were Edward and Sophie anyway, and they certainly won't be going now! It's not like it's the wedding of a Crown Prince, anyway, although it would be a nice show of support if someone went.

A message on the Benelux Message Board said that Prince Charles may go to the wedding in Denmark as "an easy way out" of going to the Christening because he and Edward have not gotten along recently. Is this true? Does anyone have any more info?
Thanks

I am not sure exactly of the reason for the riff between Edward and Charles, but I can name a few incidents which might be behind a riff, such as Edward's (former?) film company Ardent filming William while he was at school when the rest of the British media had agreed to leave William alone.

Charles also holds Sophie responsible for the Sheik/News of the World incident in which she shared some private things about the royal family to land an account when she was still working in PR. And Sophie being married to Edward, increased the animosity.

It is reported that things between Charles and Edward are getting better now, but I don't think any of this is reason for Charles not to attend his niece's christening. I doubt Charles is going to the Dutch wedding, or any British royal for that matter.

it would be terrible if Charles wouldn´t attend his niece´s christening because of some problems with Edward in the past.Probably it will be the only child for Edward and Sophie.

I would imagine that if the Queen is to be represented at the dutch wedding she may ask someone like Prince Michael or the Duke of Gloucester to attend with their wife.
Obviously, given the difficulties with Mabel and the recent death of Pncess Juliana, it is possible that the wedding will be a purely family occasion.
The only branch of the british royal family that was related to the dutch royals was Princess Alice of Athlone who was a cousin to Princess Juliana through her mother who was a sister of Queen Wilheminia's mother. Both were born Princess's of Waldeck-Pyrmont.

I hope Charles still decides to go to the chritening, he might have problems with Edward, but Louise shouldn't suffer from those problems...

I don't think Prince Michael or the Duke of Gloucester would represent the Queen at all at this occasion if she was invited. It would most likely be one of her own children. If Edward and Sophie are otherwise committed on this day, then it would be Prince Phillip, Charles, Andrew or even Anne.

I highly doubt that Queen Elizabeth would send one of her cousins to the wedding of a reigning sovereign's son. Whether Johan and Mabel's wedding is a low-key affair or not, Johan is still the son of the present Queen of the Netherlands. He is not, for example the nephew of the Queen.

I think there is a protocol (formally or not) in which the person represting one royal family at another royal family's occasion/event must "correspond" to the proximity of being in line to the throne or something like that.

In the Netherlands for example, if Queen Beatrix cannot attend say a special event that one of Queen Elizabeth's children is hosting, then one of her sons would go, and if none of them could make it, then her sister Margriet would represent her. But she would never say send Princess Margarita to represent her (for obvious reasons and otherwise).

Wessex baby faces surgery to save sight

NICHOLAS CHRISTIAN



THE baby daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex is set to have an operation to save her eyesight.

A rare condition, called exotropia, could leave six-month-old Louise blind in one eye unless surgeons can correct the defect.

Louise, who was born a month premature in an emergency Caesarean which threatened the life of her mother, is to undergo rigorous tests before specialists can perform the risky procedure.

Prince Edward and his bride Sophie first noticed that something might be wrong when Louise developed a pronounced squint soon after being born.

It is understood that the Queen has been informed and has offered her personal support to her grandson and his wife.

Louise has already had a tough time since she came into the world after a traumatic birth that at one stage threatened Sophie’s life.

Exotropia causes one eye to deviate from its normal position and look outwards, affecting the sufferer’s ability to focus. In some cases it leads to blindness.

A royal source said yesterday: "The squint is very noticeable and is causing the Wessexes huge concern. No one wants to see their child undergo an operation and Louise has already had a tough time coming into the world."

A few hours before Louise’s birth, Sophie collapsed at the couple’s home at Bagshot Park in Surrey.

In the subsequent confusion, there was a 30-minute delay before she was rushed to the nearby NHS Frimley Park Hospital.

There she underwent life-saving surgery to stop the haemorrhaging, during which doctors said she lost an estimated nine pints of blood before Louise was born at the fragile weight of just 4lb 9oz.

Edward and Sophie have been preparing for Louise’s christening at the private chapel at Windsor Castle on April 24.
