The baby looks so much like Mary. I never noticed it until now. Look at Danielles avatar when Christian is smiling and the resembelance is striking to me.

Which one was the song where the single choir boy song and it started God be good to me or something like that. I loved the music and I thought it was great.

Thumbs up Vivian Leigh

For a long time, Mary has reminded me of someone else -- with her hair drawn back and her floral cap, it finally struck me -- Vivian Leigh!

Does anyone else see a resemblance from time to time depending on her expressions?

Also, is little Christian's eyes blue or brown? I couldn't tell.

(I agree with the majority of our community -- Mary's outfit was not suited to the weather or season and was not the best match. Why didn't she choose a beautiful blue wool coat dress with a lovely open neckline? CP Mathilde made a wise choice both in terms of fashion and weather.)

I know this isn't the appropriate thread...but Princess Theodora is growing into a striking young lady. Imagine if she and Prince William hooked up :) I almost didn't recognize her at first!

And to get back to the original topic....while I liked Mary's hair piece..I agree the outfit she wore..while nice..wasn't approprite for the season. I think a beautiful wool coat dress (as mentioned by Lady Buffton) would have been lovely.

Princess Alexandra as always looked lovely. Loved Mathilde and Martha Louise's outfits as well. Mette Marits was nice...but also a little too dark for me as well...but still appropriate. I loved the interaction between the godparents, the family, and baby Christian.

Yea I know what you mean. I remember looking at some pics of her a while back and when I saw her today I thought she was one Nicholas girlfriend.

Someone asked what music the choir was singing when Fred and Mary walked in with Christian.

On the royal website it says that the choir sang, "Her kommer,
Jesus, dine små" arranged by Michael Bojesen.

One other thing...not to criticize, but was it just me or was Mary's hairstyle asymmetrical? Seemed like one side of the bun was larger than the other -- planned? Was it designed to balance out the flower cap? Daring, but symmetry would have been more chic.

Greece?

And one other thing before I sign off for the night -- I guess the Greek royal family loved the color scheme! :)

CP Victoria isn't god-mother to Odysseus, she's god-mother to Pavlos' & MC's oldest son Contantinos. She's also god-mother to Princess Catharina-Amalia as well as Princess Ingrid Alexandra. She's a popular choice for god-mother!

Yeah, my sister is godmother of 4 and now is yearning for her own, maybe the same is (hopefully) happening to Victoria, you never know

Thumbs up

Great pictures! It seems like it was a very special day and a good time for everyone who attended. Prince Christian as expected!

fashion:
CP Mary: I loved the jacket, it was especially beautiful with the broche and i loved the colour, the skirt was okay but i would have liked to see Mary with a matching skirt/jacket combo for once...i love how Fred and Mary always match fashion-wise (his blue tie)...i also liked the headpiece, nice change from the traditional hats

CP Victoria: overall, one of her better outfits...but i agree with some people who said that she looked a little matronly

CP Marit-Mette: I didn't not like the all black, she looked as if she was attending a funeral...i agree that the ribbon she had in her hair was kinda girlish

It could be that because it was a happy occassion they wanted light colours, airy and bright in spite of the winter since it was an occassion of love and happiness. I think it was a lovely outfit in spite of the weather made it a very warm occasion.

I loved Mathilde's outfit, i wish she dressed more like that, she's so young but always dresses old which is lovely in some instances but she ages herself far too much when she's in her early 30s. I wonder if thats because Phillipe is mucholder than her so she needs to blend in and not look to young.

For anybody who wants to watch the christening again go to the Discussion about the broadcasting thread on the second page. Somebody provided a link with directions on how to view the christening. It is on the NRK Nett-TV website and it has the whole christining on it as well as a bunch of other royal videos like Charles/Camillas, Felipe/Letizia and Fred/Marys wedding.
