Prince Harry was christened in St. George's Chapel, Windsor. I don't know about Princess Beatrice, but her sister was christened in Sandringham Church...

Princess Beatrice was probably christened at Sandringham Church because she was christened on Dec. 20, 1988, and the royal family would have already been at Sandringham for Christmas.

I would love to see larger photos of William and Harry's christenings. Those are rather small, however very regal and beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

princesteve you asked who Princess Anne's childrens godparents are and here is the info and where and when they were christened.
Zara Phillips (b. 15 May 1981) was christened Zara Anne Elizabeth on
27 July 1981 in the Private Chapel, Windsor Castle, by the Dean of Windsor, the Rt Rev. Michael Mann. Her godparents were: her uncle the Duke of York; the Countess of Lichfield; Mrs Jackie Stewart; Colonel Andrew Parker- Bowles; and Mr Hugh Thomas.

Peter Phillips (b. 15 November 1977) was christened Peter Mark Andrew Phillips on 22 December 1977 in the Music Room at Buckingham Palace by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Donald Coggan. His godparents were: his uncle the Prince of Wales; the Rt Rev. Geoffrey Tiarks; Captain Hamish Lochare; Lady Cecil Cameron of Lochiel; and Mrs Timothy Holderness-Roddam.

I have a questions about godparents. I've noticed that with the British, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and Dutch royal families they pick mutiple godparents, whereas the Spanish and Belgian royals pick only two. Is it because in the catholic religion they are allowed to have two and in the Anglican religions there is no limit on the amount of godparents. Also for the Catholic royals do the godparents have to be catholic or can they be of another denomination as long as it's within the Christian religion. It's something that I've noticed and I was curious about.
For example:
Prince Christian has eight
CP Victoria of Sweden
CP Haakon of Norway
CP Mette-Marit of Norway
CP Pavlos of Greece
Prince Joachim of Denamrk
Jane Stephens
Hamish Campbell
Jeppe Handwerk

But Prince Emmanuel has two
HGD Prince Guilliame
Countess Elisabeth d'Udekem d'Acoz

It's something that I've noticed and I was curious about.

In the Church of England, I think the minimum number of godparents is two of the same sex as the baby and one of the opposite sex.

Catholics usually have two a male and a female. The reason I don't know. They are suppose to take care in case the parents aren't there. Most of the time they do have to be catholic. in case of royalty i don't know though.

As a catholic you tend to have two godparents, one male, one female.
Mostly the first baby gets their paternal granddad and their maternal grandmother, second one paternal grandmother and maternal granddad. If parents get more then two children one starts with using their siblings as godparents: baby 3 could then get for instance the eldest brother of their father and the eldest sister of their mother... That was the "traditional" way of doing things.

Philippe and Mathilde decided they wanted to give their children young people as godparents

Princess Elisabeth got Prins Amadeo (father's side) and Hélène d'Udekem d'Acoz (mother's side)
Prince Gabriel got Charles-Henri d'Udekem d'Acoz (mother's side) and a cousin of Philippe (father's side; sorry, but I forgot her name, it's a daughter of one of Queen Paola's siblings)
Prince Emmanuel got HGD Guillaume of Luxembourg (father's side) and Elisabeth d'Udekem d'Acoz (mother's side)

If a fourth child comes allong it's very lightly that a male from Mathilde's side is choosen as well as a female of Phillippe's side.

Do the god parents have to be catholic? Or can they of another faith as long as it is of the Christian faith? Say for example If Princess Mathilde & Prince Phillipe asked Princess Madeleine to the godmother of their son would that be allowed.

I don't know. I think it depends on how strict the priest is. I'm catholic and one of my god parents isn't, same with my sister.

If this isn't the place for my question, mods, feel free to move it to a more appropriate thread. I'm just curious to know--what procedure, exactly, does a royal christening follow? What does the ceremony consist of? Being a Southern Baptist, I've never even been part of an ordinary christening or confirmation, let alone a royal one, so I know precious little as to how they're conducted. (I only know that drops of water are sprinkled on the baby being christened, and that he's given godparents. And that, in the case of the royal christenings, pictures are taken afterwards and that the people involved get to enjoy a christening cake. Yes, I also know about the font created by Prince Albert, which holds the baptismal water that is brought from the river Jordan, and about the christening robe the babies wear for the ceremony--it's certainly fancy and, by now, antique! =))

Any information you can give me on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!



Yours truly,
Kathy G.
