Update about the christening of the new princess. Click here to read it.

Basically the article notes that the christening will be a small one compared to Christian's. The July 1 event, held at Fredensborg Slotskirke (chapel) will be followed by a small private lunch and presentations of gifts. The list of guests has yet to be released from the Danish court.

The article also states that Frederik has many sailing events to attend to following the July 1 event.

TV2.sk reported yesterday, June 6, about the christening. They noted the time for the event will be at 11:30am. Furthermore, the lunch following the event will be for close friends and family only at Kancellihuset. They also note that Frederik "...shall after the [christening will] join in by one bd Nanoq to Farr Open Scandinavian Championship p Hank no Frederiksstad." (no idea what that means, if you do, tell me.)




*If you speak Danish and would like to translate the entire article or report from TV2 (using your own words) please do so. Members would appreciate it.

The text is:
Tronfølgeren skal efter planen deltage med sin båd Nanoq i Farr 40 Open Nordic Championship på Hankø nær Frederiksstad.

Meaning that Frederik is scheduled to participate in Farr 40 Open Nordic Championship at Hankø near Frederiksstad.
The article is about the christening being small-scaled compared to Christian's (as already quoted in previous posts) and that the guests probably won't be hanging around too long since Frederik is supposed to be in Norway at 11 am the following day.
According to the article the christening will be shown on TV2.

You know, I think it's sort of sad that less pomp (I guess that's what you call it?) is given to this child (as in the # of cannons fired, the grandness of the christianing...ect.ect.). You know? Just because she's a girl. Or is it also because she's second-born? Would a second-born son have gotten the same treatment as Lille Prinsses is getting? I'm not trying to sound or be negative, but I was just wondering. I'd thought that them both being children of the CP couple, they'd get the same treatment.

The difference almost certainly has to do with Christian being a future king I think, not the sex (definitely not the sex - think people here would probably love a grand show for Lillepigen )

I agree UserDane. Christian got all the pomp & circumstance for his birth/christening because he is the future king. And with Lilleprinsesse being the first Princess born in over 60 years, the Danes would love a grand show for her aswell, like UserDane said

Mods, isn't it time for a new thread?

I think that the event is smaller only because she is third in line. If Mary has another baby, and it is a boy will he because third in line? Putting the little princess forth?

Under the current Danish succession laws, yes, that is correct.

I also think, this christening can't have the big pomp and thunder like Chirstian's because who knows - there might be more siblings in store, one, two, three... And the DRF has to justify those kind of events to the public (a.k.a. people who are not found of the spending style of their royals)

Being the " spare " certainly has many disadvantages, you must still have the social skills, training and education just in case the worst happened, but must always remember your place if all goes well you are just going to retreat further as more children are born to the Heir, very sad, but thats the real world. I think Prince Joachim is lucky that he also has the nack and education to be a farmer, and has the beautiful Schackenborg Palace.

I think it would have been worse for her if she had been born a boy- that would have repeated the Frederik/Joachim situation, not that Joachim hasn't acted admirably, but as you said, he has to be in retreat mode now that the direct line is secured. As a girl, however, and the only princess to be born in decades, she'll have her own special standing apart from her brother not only within the family, but within her country, as well.

The "spare" isn't going to have a christening or a wedding as grand as the heir/heiress because they aren't the first in line to rule the country. Granted they aren't going to be completely neglected either, god forbid something were to happen.

That said, even if their second child was a boy, I doubt anything would be different than it is right now. The only way it would be different was if their first born was a girl and their second child was a son. The first-born would get all the pomp and circumstance as the heiress presumptive (until or if a son is born) and when the son is born, he'll get all the pomp and circumstance as the heir apparent.

I doubt that they are slighting the lille prinsesse in any way.

But Prince Joachim was christened in the Cathedral of Aarhus. And he was in the same position as the little Princess with the only difference that he was a boy. Also the Princess Margrethe, Princess Benedikte and Princess Anne-Marie where all christened in Holmens Kirke and they didn't have succession rights at that time.

Perhaps Frederik and Mary just likes the church at Fredensborg - and like the idea of a smaller-scale christening so close to their own home.

Since the christening is going to be smaller and more low key does this mean the royal turn out will be small as well? I would imagine some royals attending like CP Victoria and CP Haakon and M-M since they all seem to be such good friends. Does anyone know when the guestlist might be released?

You can also see the entire christening of Prince Christian here. The video is from NRK Norway.
Slightly off topic, but is there a similar video that shows the entrance of the guests at te Crown Princely wedding?

Looks to me like LilleP is a mini-me of CP Mary! Look at that little turn-up nose!
