Thank you everybody for the many wonderful pictures of baby Christian's christening! :)

I was very touched by Margrethe's tears during the christening.

I am going to go out on a limb (and am anticipating tomatoes or eggs being thrown at me for this) and say that I liked Mary's headpiece. The colour could've been blue or white/cream, but there was a classic, nostalgic sixties look to it that I thought complimented Mary's hairstyle very well. And it didn't cover her face so that we could get a really good look of how lovingly she looked at her son and how she doted on him.

However, I wish her skirt had been more formal (with a shape to it) rather than light and springy on the heels of a snow storm in Denmark. I think the skirt was beautiful, but not so appropriate for a January day.

I'm surprised by the choice of both Haakon and Mette-Marit as godparents, but a nice surprise nonetheless.

Victoria looked very elegant and lovely, as was Alexandra. Benedikte looked ever so regal in her fur jacket with the fuschia ribbon, too!

Laurentien was surprisingly subdued, and aside from her hat, I thought she looked glowing and radiant.

I have missed -- and hope I will get to see pictures of Alexandra of Bereleberg and her husband. I saw a picture of her brother Gustav arrive with Nikolaos and his girlfriend though.

Princess Benedikte's outfit really looks awful to me. Colours don't match together at all: red, pink, purple
Crown Princess Pavlos seems pregnant to me, more than Laurentien (I can't see her belly).
This is only my opinion. I don't want to make any offence

Thank you soooo much to all of you who were brave to get up early to watch the christening of Prince Christian. It was way too early for me to get up here in Canada. I think Mary and the baby were the stars of the show and rightly so. All of the pics were beautiful and it's nice to finally know the name of the little prince. Christian is a beautiful name and suits him well. Again thanks to all of you for the christening coverage and the pictures.:)

I loved Queen Anne-Marie's red outfit. Extremely striking and it suited her.

A wonderful photoseries from dagbladet taken by Lise Åserud for scanpix, it shows all the royals without watermark
http://www.dagbladet.no/nyheter/2006/01/21/455427.html

As for the dresses i think most of the royals look a little boring, Frederiks and Marys Friends were better and more interestingly dressed IMO

Poor Felix looked a little under the weather today, but those boys are surly extremely beautiful

a couple of comments please, now that i've napped a bit.
1. wish the live camera had stayed on the royal family members and godparents, less on the minister, guests and choir. jmo
2. i don't understand danish, so if some1 could tell me at what point did QM cry, didn't catch it. and at the end when mary became very emotional what had been said (or sung, might have been the last song) at that moment.
again it was so beautiful. thanks so much for the hard work moderators. GOOD JOB

Mathilde and CR Victoria were SOOOOOOOOO elegant and their outfits are gorgeous.

Mary's color Jacket is very nice and suits her skintone...BUT that nice jacket and that nice skirt do not match each other.

And the hat ...what was she thinking...HORRIBLE hat and hair do
