Here's some info about the christening robes, Kongehuset - Aktuelt - Nyheder The prince was wearing the old one, the princess a robe found among queen Ingrid's stuff. It seems to have been given to her after the birth of her first child, Margarethe.

I must say that I love the prince and princess' names... They are all very unique and it seems that Mary and Frederik love to give their children names that people least expect. Josephine is my fav though because that was my great great grandmother's name and is on my list for when I have children

It's a nice sounding name, but poor boy

I missed the christening since I had to be elsewhere... Is there a place where I could watch the whole thing? Vincent... well that certainly is a surprise and I'm not sure I like it. The only other famous Vincents that come to mind are Van Gogh and Price. Josephine I like very much. But the other names... Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda..?! Ivalo as in the place in Finland? Is that even a name?! Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander... Don't know about Minik... It sounds weird too.

Lovely choice to honour Greenland with Minik and Ivalo.
Can you please explain to me the significance of those names - Minik and Ivalo - their meanings ?

One interesting fact about the name Vincent, it's the name of one of the patron saints (Vincent of Saragossa) for vintners, as prince Henrik mentioned.

Vincent was a surprise name, but I like it and it's quite popular in Sweden as a name for boys, it was the 20th most popular given name in Sweden in 2010, I don't know how it is in Denmark.

I had hoped for the name Caroline Mathilde for the little princess, after queen Caroline Matilda of Great Britain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia of Denmark, her life was very sad and she died young.

Oh yes, both Ivalo and Minik are greenlandic names.

They are a reference to the hunter gatherer culture in Greenland.
Hence the in modern context odd reference to Minik meaning something like blubber
And Ivalo meaing something like sinew.

Things of crucial importance in a culture which hunt polar animals.

Gorgeous pics and thanks for posting. The babies look so chubby and healthy - but I think Mary's stepmum needs some help in the fashion stakes
