So it takes that long to get Mary's relatives from Australia? Wow! I'm disappointed because there is no way he's going to fit in the traditional christening gown.

Since he's being christened in the "Christiansborg Palace Church"...maybe his name will be "Christian" afterall! Nice symbolism! As for the christening gown...this can be altered can't it?

Or maybe they are breaking with tradition, and using a new gown? Maybe one with an Australian detail?

i get crazy when two royal celebrations happen at the same time.....

i am disappointed it's gonna be that long and that the fact his name will be christan has become so obvious....

ps: i am not an expert at all but, could it be that it takes so long so that his jaundice will pass, or does it usually pass fast?

tnx!

Ingrid Alexandra turning two is not a major royal event, Haakon can still be the godfather if he is asked, he can even bring his daughter to Copenhagen. If the the royal families should not plan their events so that they would not crash with birthdays they would never get to arrange anything.

If they want to break traditions (the Frederik-Christian-Frederik-Christian etc.) and still be traditional in a historical perspective, Kristoffer might be a choice (since they had some kings with that name in the late medivals). Though I think Christian is better than Kristoffer (no offence to all of you with the name Christopher, Kristoffer and other variations!!)

But my guess is that the surprise will lie in the choice of middle names (as he is likely to have 2-3 of them).

Exactly - or he could do as Frederik did with Ingrid Alexandra - and not show.

i was not saying that they should avoid birthdays obviously...it was let's say me thinking aloud. it would be impossible. but an example as alexia's christening on the same day as albert enthronment is ridiculous!
