I like both names. They're not my favourites that I'd give to my own children but they're both nice. To me, Josephine and Vincent are in the same category as names like Sophia and Isabella - traditional, old fashioned names - but unlike Sophia and Isabella they're not trendy, (yet). I know fifteen or twenty years ago Isabella would have been seen as an unusual name to give a little girl where I'm from but now every preschool and kindergarten class seems to have four or five of them.

they are Mary's friends, Baroness Helle and Caroline Heering.

I find it interesting that those friends and Mary all wore dresses with the same neckline, a bateau neck which photographs well.

I hadn't seen these pics yet, so thank you. It gave me good chance to see what most guests wore. I am impressed by only a few though I have to say. More shockers then I would have expected.

Would anyone know the designer of the dress worn by Caroline Heering ?

There is an article in the Australian newspaper and apparently it said they named the baby girl after her- but who knows if this is correct. Interesting though.

When we (society) expect women not to age why are we so surprised when they attempt to stop the clock?

I think she looked fabulous and I am so taken with little Isabella. What a personality that one has!
I agree- she looks amazing- i wish I had her body and I have only had two kids.

Two surprises about the christening for me-
1. The names- like them, but was not expecting them!
2. The choice of Prince Felipe for godfather, fine choice, but somewhat surprising!

Sadly that is not true for everyone, Christina Onassis had a terrible weight problem. Self discipline is the key and many women use it as successfully as Mary has after each pregnancy.

It's great to finally see some pictures of the little ones close up & with open eyes as the photographers really failed to capture them during their own Christening.

you are correct, her lifestyle help her to look like she looks, if you look at her sister she does not look as good as her, nor pretty. She has so much help in everything that it is so easy to look like that with all that help , thought you have to have a great canvas with what to work! I would love to experience her life just for a week just to see how it feels to be with that style of life!

i tottaly agree with you, she looks fantastic, and what a body she has, after 4 kids!!!!

i think that you have to look your best, not try to look younger than you are(like some princess i know), because everyone will notice that...
Awwww, that´s so familiar that you share your clothes with your siblings Though I didn´t thought that we would see it this clearly with the CPC, but it´s soooooo sweet

I actually think that Mary's sister has a great figure for a woman with three children. The slimness is obviously in the genes of the Donaldson family.
Of course Mary's lifestyle helps her to look more refined than the average woman (e.g. her sister) but there are other princesses with the same lifestyle and the same amount of help who don't look that good. So it's obviously not that easy even for a princess.
I would say Mary's good figure is the result of genes, lifestyle and especially self-discipline. It's like giving birth to twins the natural way: of course Mary had a lot of help but she was the one who had to push them out.

Not exactly, he said they looked like Christian and Isabella. As an aside he said, all newborns are kind of ugly..all scrunched up and wrinkled. Henrik, like the Duke of Edinburough, as a caustic sense of humor. I don't think he'd call his grandchildren ugly.

Not exactly.
What he (jokingly) said was: The twins are ugly like all newborns.
And after that general insult to newborns he said (no exact quote): They look like Isabella and she has become a pretty little girl.

I like both names. Vincent was a bit unexpected but great.

I think there is some truth behind all jokes. And, It seems like he doesn't have joking skill.
