Thank you for the news SydneyLux. I'd been wondering when the newest little Hapsburg would make her arrival. Nice that Fabiola has been added as one of her names. Great family photo with grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousin.

Countess Amalia of Nasau is Prince Felix and Princess Claire's daughter. I thought she was Princess.

Btw, congratulations to Christoph and Adelaide!

I love the new little Archduchess's name! Adelaide recovered very quickly and was well enough to baptize her infant five days after the birth?

She looks fantastic!

Was there a similiar announcement of the grand ducal palace then when little Maria-Stella was born? (11-11-2013)
If yes, could someone please post it here or give a link.

Congratulations to Archduke Christoph and Archduchess Adelaide! I also love the little Archduchess's name, and it's nice that they included Fabiola which I guess is to honour the late Queen of Belgium. I was also surprised that she was christened very early, but I read that it's a tradition in Catholic families (particularly in the more strict families).

Okay now I understand. There is a mention of Maria Stella's birth in the announcement so perhaps they did a two-for-one?

There is no rule nowadays for the baptism in the Catholic families.
My boys had their baptism early because we have a great lace familiy baptism dress small sice which was used since generations.
Other Families may do it when the whole family is in the Country as some of their members are living abroad.

I may said that at my Grand Mothers time the baptizm was quickly after the birth, the Mother did not even attend because they were afraid of "la mort subite"

The thought in catholicism traditionally behind this is that you can't enter heaven after you die if you're not baptised, Because child mortality rates used to be quite high, a child was baptised as soon as possible, practically always within a few days (if the baby was in really poor condition after birth, the midwife was allowed to perform a "emergency baptism" right away).
(For some real "couleur locale", in my area it was believed that the souls of unbaptised babies would stay on earth because they had nowhere to go. People thought that the little lights that floated over marshlands or swamps (iow fireflies) were these unfortunate souls. If you encountered such a light you were supposed to say "i baptise you" and that would help the soul to find it's way and go to heaven).

Nowadays there usually is more time for a baptism, so they usually wait a while and take time to plan a more elaborate baptism, with a little party etc.

But when i first learned that protestant baptisms were often months later and that was quite normal, i was really surprised and it was really strange to me

My son never marries.
For my grand daughter no christening , no holy Communion either and I am Catholic.
I have to accept their will !

The only thing is if later she wants to marry a Catholic at the Church , for doing that she has to show a certificate of Baptism, Communion and Confirmation.

In Catholicism unbaptized babies are entrusted to the Mercy of God.

I was raised in catholic faith but I was really surprised that they christened the baby so fast. In my country, the christening takes place usually three, four months after the birth.
I obsereved the same in Spanish and Belgian Royal Families, so I was really confused about that fact
