I agree.

Seems that there's no tradional venue for the christening of a future Monarch.

I wonder if the intention was for the Music Room to become the traditional christening spot, and William is going against that.

However, 2 christenings doesn't make a tradition, and I somehow doubt that the Queen or Charles are bothered by William not going with the Music Room.

These phrases are really beginning to annoy me "modern couple", "breaking tradition". I don't know why.

I see this christening will not be a grand and pompous one like the Duchess of Ostergotland had,
Prince George's christening will be a "small intimate affair" with close family and others - hellomagazine.com
but im sure it will be just as lovely

They stoped to use the Music Room after William's christening. The queen started to use this room and the queen was first, who changed the Music room for Windsor chapel.

I actually think that the intention was for the private chapel at BP to be the traditional place but when it was destroyed in WWII the Music Room was used with the intention of rebuilding the private chapel but by the early 60s that plan had changed so Edward was christened at Windsor and since then it has been a mish-mash.

To be fair... I think to some degree it's always been a mish-mash.

Totally agree with your post, cepe.

Actually, William did engage in friendly discourse with someone besides Michael. When he and Harry first arrived at the Abbey, they exchanged kisses and spoke to their Spencer relatives. They also had a few words with a couple of the guests. The BRF (and the Middleton's) didn't arrive until after William and Harry. By then, the brothers were in a private room and didn't come out until Catherine started walking down the aisle. William did smile at his family when he came up the aisle, but he didn't really have a chance to talk to anyone since the wedding was starting.

As for the Christening, shouldn't we wait for the event before we start talking about whether William is shunning his family or whether this Christening is fit for a future King?

I mean, nothing has been confirmed yet and people are already in a lather. I can't imagine all of the complaints that are going to come out when the godparents, guests and the photos are actually revealed.

For starters, there is usually no official release of the names of the godparents beforehand. They also don't usually release film surrounding the event for viewing to the press, but I could be wrong.

Perhaps they are not more low key than the Windsors but they certainly are just as lowkey as the Windsors, and christenings are not nearly as lavish as they are in the other countries I named.

They bug me a bit, too. lol I think it's because I don't think Kate and William are truly that different. Every generation does things differently. There's nothing particularly exceptional to me about anything they've done. IOW, they're not THAT "modern" or "tradition breaking."

Naming their baby George certainly smacks of tradition, imo.

I don't think they would chose a deposed foreign royal such as Pavlos. has that been done before for future kings/queens?

Constantine of Greece is William's godfather; William is the godfather to Pavlos son; Charles is godfather to Pavlos

Thanks, I knew William was godfather to Pavlos' son and Charles was Pavlos' godfather, I forgot that Constantine was chosen for William.

Charles is Pavlo's godfather? i did not know. The christening took place in Athens, the GRF was not yet on exile.
I would love to see a pic.

There's no problem with deposed Royals. The deposed King Constantine II of Greece was one of Prince William's godparents.

Also, for Royalty, once you are a Royal, you'll always be one of them. Just look at the pictures of the Diamond Jubilee Sovereign's Lunch, the deposed Kings of Greece, Romania and Bulgaria had the same precedence of the reigning Monarchs.

The Duchess of Cambridge even curtseyed to the Crown Princess of Romania.

One thing we have to keep in mind too is that the Greek royals although deposed, are also family from the Duke of Edinburgh's side of the family. I think the BRF is on very close terms with them.
