I didn't like the pattern on the skirt of Mary's outfit. Otherwise everything was fine.

Prince Christian, Valdemar, Henri, John!

Finally a name!!!
:) Prince Christian, Valdemar, Henri, John!
Mary looks radiant, she has one contagious smile that translates in every photo as how happy she is. And the baby's eyes match her dress!
Question: Is Christian's Lutheran baptism ceremony similar to Leonor's baptism Catholic ceremony, where the mother always holds the child?

I think Mary looked stunning, well, except for what she was wearing on her head. Otherwise, I think her outfit was very appropriate.

Thanks everybody for the lovely pictures. Sadly, I couldn't get myself out of bed at 4am to watch it all but it looks like a lovely event.

I really liked this pic of Mary and Christian as she walked into the church.

From polfoto



Sadly, I haven't seen any photos of Philippe and Matilde. They're always a handsome pair.

My thoughts exactly. I did not mention it but she could have let go of the flowery thing on her head. Came to mind the 1960's turban hats Liz Taylor used to wear. Mary looks fine just with her hair being pulled back. And, the skirt is too busy. The hat is one color, followed by the coat with two colors and a skirt with three or four (?) colors and shoes to match the hat, not the dress?
Ladies, I'll leave it to you comments now.

When you see how the other royal women were dressed, CP Mary's outfit seems a little more suited to spring time rather than a cold winter's day! It's a beautiful outfit - i love the brooch she has on but not the hat! She must be rather cold walking into church with the wind blowing...

I still haven't found a pic of Philippe and Mathilde but here's a really nice pic of Martha-Louise (my favorite princess!) and Ari Behn walking into the church.

from polfoto



edited to add: Hannelore found some pics of Mathilde and Philippe at ANP and posted them in the Philippe and Mathilde thread. Thanks Hannelore! Mathilde looks lovely as always and Philippe is always so dashing!

Is there a guest list around? From the guests shown here the ceremony was more in the lines of an international event.

This was truly a wonderful christening! A perfect mix between formality and informality I thought.

Crown Princess Mary looked wonderful (the brooch was superb, it really completed the outfit), so happy and close to her child at the christening ceremony Ė it was so sweet how she fondled with him during the whole time, a great way to keep him calm and quiet too I suppose. It was quite hard to keep the emotions back when I saw how touched both Fredrik and Mary were. And this must also have been the first time I saw Queen Margrethe so moved, even to tears as it seemed.

Good name choice too, I like the name Christian. Itís both modern and with a tradition. Interesting to see how they chose Henri and not the Danish form Henrik.

Itís almost spooky how alike in appearance Crown Princess Mary and her sister Jane are!

Interesting to see Tatiana Blatnik on the guest list again, too bad thereís no picture of her and Nikolaos entering the church (at least I havenít seen one) as I saw them do during the broadcast. I wonder when they are going to take the next step in their relationship, or if they are planning to do so at all.

I am not a huge fan of Mary's outfit and here is what I base my opinion on. I just want to say that I love the jacket and the skirt, but just not together. If you look really objectively it seems that she went into her closet and grabbed a piece from two different outfits. The jacket with its sharp, clean tailoring looks great and the dress with its print looks lovely for a summer day. But the jacket is sharp and tailored and the dress is pleated and flowing. The outfit does not look fluid from top to bottom. The jacket is almost heavy and the skirt is light and airy. Also, the edging on the jacket stands out.

Although I think Mary looked radiant and happy, I don't really like her outfit. It looks kind of mashed together, with the skirt not quite matching the jacket and the jacket not quite matching the hat. But I think both her and Fred look incredibley happy, and in love.
