Thank you to all who posted pictures and I enjoyed reading all the comments. I agree with all who loved Mary's headpiece. It was unusual and suited her. It opened her face so we could read her facial expressions. I think if she had worn a wide brimmed hat it may have been in the way of Pr Christian's face and it may have been a bit of a bother in the strong wind. Jane wore a wide brimmed hat in a dark shade and unfortunately it looked as if half of her face was hidden. Other than that it was a very emotion filled ceremony and once again clearly showed the love between Mary and Fred and now also the love for the gorgeous son.

I enjoyed the baptism very much, it was very sweet and I think both parents are very happy with their child.

I am sure there are some who share your view, but it would seem that you are a minority on this one

Hello Winammal

I agree with you...I wouldn't say he's handsome either, he's cute (and adorable) but not handsome. Some babies are born beautiful/stunning from day one eg. Infanta Leonor (she looks like a porcelain doll in some of the pictures). That said, it's still early days, who knows he might, in time, become really handsome like his cousins!

What a beautiful ceremony..I actually saw some higlights of it at Spanish TVE..Princess Mary kinda reminds me of Vivian Leigh, the actress who played the role of Scarlet O'Hara in Gone With The Wind...I think Americans could surely relate with what I'm saying but Vivian Leigh was a famous British actress in the 1930's or 50's I think..Just in my opinion, Princess Mary has a resemblance to Vivian Leigh..

I think he is a lovely baby.

Are there any photos of Prince Frederik holding the baby?

I think Mary is what we in danish calls a "Hønemor" which means an overprotective mother. it seems she is the only one that can hold the baby and noone else. Not even the father.

Thank you all that kept us update on this wonderful and tender Christening.

I saw some images from the Christening at Portuguese TV and I must admit that Mary's outfit looked more beautiful on TV than it does on pictures.

Mary and Fred seemed very happy and having real good time at their son christening. I also noticed that they both seem to find their son quite funny and amusing. One could clearly see that they were looking each other like they were saying "He's doing it again". And even the baby seems to have the same sense of humor. That smiling pic (Danielle’s avatar) of him in his mum's arm tells me that he is enjoying his special day.

As for the godparents, Mary and Fred couldn't have chosen better. The godmothers Mette and Victoria seemed besotted with their godchild.

As a Fashion faux-pas it only jumped to my eyes Mary’s stepmother (I don’t like the hat and shoes with that suit) and her sister (too dark, too tall with that hat).

As for Mary’s headpiece, I really like it, makes her look younger, fresh...

Prince Christian is just beautiful. I still don’t understand why some people said that his cousins were prettier. I don’t think so! Mary and Fred are very lucky for having such a gorgeous and smiling boy!

Once again thank you all for bringing all the news, details and pictures!

Regards,
mtbcm :)

Well it is her first child so she probably is very protective of him. We don't know that she doesn't let Frederick hold him, they said they were going to be very "hands on" parents.

I'm not sure if this has been posted before but would this have been the first time that Mary met Victoria, MM and Haakon and Pavlos?

They were all at Frederik's and Mary's wedding! Mary joined the family get together of the descendants of Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden last year and spent time with all the Swedish royals. Victoria also stayed with Frederik and Mary at the Chancellory House when she was on an official visit to Denmark last year. Pavlos stated in an interview that he had met Mary over a weekend visit either when she and Frederik were dating or newly engaged I can't remember. Haakon and Mary sat together during an official lunch last October during the official visit to Denmark by the Norwegian royals. I'll hazard a guess and say they all know each other somewhat!

Here in Finland we always have both of the couple, a wife and a husband, as godparents. It would be thought very, very, very insulting to choose only one of them as a godparent. I have never even heart of choosing only one of them here.

Perhaps Mary is not an overprotective mother but rather a sensible one. At a major event one does whatever it takes to keep the baby calm and that usually means in the arms of mom. To be near the foodsource and the familiar heartbeat is calming for any baby and Mary did a good job of keeping him comfortable.

I wasn't able to watch the ceremony live because the computer wasn't working so I was very curious about the prince's name. Little Christian is adorable and cute and he's very fortunate to have such loving parents. Mary and Frederik seemed really happy and proud.

In Henrik's defence, his hair blew out of order when he entered the church. I do think he combed his hair before he left, but there was quite some wind outside the church.

Actually, i do not find him handsome either...he gets cute lately and looks much better now than before..sorry but he was a bit ugly to me before.

As for Mary's headpiece, people need to make the distinction between the color of the headpiece and its design. For me the color makes a contrast with Mary's dark hair and her blue jacket...So, in that sense, it was nice..BUT the design
