Baptism of Willem-Alexander
Baptism of Catharina-Amalia
Baptism of Alexia
Baptism of Ariane
Baptism of Claus-Casimir
Baptism of Leonore
Baptism of Benjamin van Vollenhoven
Baptism of Emma van Vollenhoven
Baptism Magali van Vollenhoven

Who is Princess Marijke?

And is it just me...but when I ever I look at pictures of Beatrix, Claud and their children...I just feel the love. Not to be corny or anything. She must miss her husband so much.

Princess Christina was named Marijke untill her xth birthday when she decided to change her name (her baptism name is Maria-Christina)

And I agree, I 'feel' the love to, and she does miss him terribly. A friend recently said that she still can not talk about him without crying.

I gather they have several baptism gowns.

The main line seems to use the most significant one, of 1.80 meters, first used by Queen Wilhelmina. Juliana, Beatrix, Christina, Willem-Alexander, Constantijn, Catharina-Amalia and Alexia seem to have been baptised in that gown.
From comparing the gowns it seems that the one that was used for Margriet in Ottawa was also used for her sons.

Luana got a new gown, from Viktor and Rolf (which will probably also be used for her sister Zaria)
The children of Constantijn and Laurentien have another gown, which seems older.

So does anybody have information about the godchildren of members of the RF?
I only can come up with a few,
HM Queen Beatrix is godmother to CP Victoria of Sweden, to one of the great-grandchildren of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone (Katherine Abel-Smith) and to the daughter of Lady Anson.

The Prince of Orange is godfather to a daughter of Count Clemens of Waldburg-Zeil Hohenhems (Countess Leonie I believe)

Princess Maxima is a godmother to Prince Sverre of Norway

Princess Laurentien is a godmother to Leah Isodorah Behn

As posted by Noel S. McFarren on the Benelux Royals MB, the godparents of Princess Juliana:

Quote:
The following will stand as godparents to the infant Princess:--
The Queen-Mother of the Netherlands, the Grand Duchess Louise of Baden, cousin of the Prince Consort's father, and also cousin of the Queen, the Grand Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, mother of the Prince Consort, the Princess Marie of Wied, daughter of the late Prince Frederick of the Netherlands, the Princess Adolphus of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, grandmother of the Prince Consort, the Princess Elizabeth of Erbach-Sch�nburg, youngest sister of the Queen-Mother of the Netherlands, Duke John Albrecht of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Regent of Brunswick, and Duke Adolphus Frederick of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. The last two are brothers of the Prince Consort.

That is unknown. They usually release information about that a few days before the actual christening.
I assume it will be done at the chapel of Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn though. I believe most grandchildren of Pieter and Margriet have been baptised there.
