Thank you, JessRulz

The various media have picked up on the news: Kongelige tvillinger døbes i april - dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland

DR1 informs us that Frederik himself was christened in the same church in 1968.

Holmens Kirke is the navel church, and it's beautiful old church.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #13, 2011.
Sådan bliver festen - That's how the party will be like.
Written by Annelise Weimann.

The celebrations will be in three stages.

Shirley and Elvis will be Christened in Holmens Kirke at 15.30 as you all know. The likable Erik Normann Svendsen will be the priest.
Several hundred guests have been invited to the church, including a large number of children frome the friends and family of M&F.

When the christening is over those guests who are invited to the reception at Amalienborg afterwards will be ferried from the church to Amalienborg.
The guest will be transported in three canal boats (tourist/sightseeing boats) and it will last about an hour. Every boat can accomodate 144 passengers but as they will not be packed to capacity, there should nevertheless be plenty of room for to swing the arms, if they want to.
While the guests are viewing Copenhagen from the sea, the official photos will be taken. So M&F, their nearest family and godparents will not be sailing.

The recption will take place in the Knights Hall/Great Hall at Amalienborg.

At 20.00 there will be a dinner for the family and closest friends in Taffelsalen (the dining hall). 60 people can be seated at the table, but it's doubtful that that many guests will dine at home at M&F.

BB writes that it's more than likely that la Marie will be godmother (fadder) to one of the twins.

The transmissions have started on DR1 and TV2, also online.

Three hours to go, from this is posted.

The Royal Lifeguard is in red gala uniforms on the occassion.
As a curiosum, two of the guardsmen who have just started their two hour watch are twin brothers.

I suggest you start to look for a live link and post it here.

Look in: www.dr.dk or www.tv2.dk or www.tv2news.dk

Is there a link with the texts and the prayers of the christening? There was one for Henrik's christening but I can't find one for today.

I think it will come as we get closer to the actual christening :)

Prince Joachim has arrived at Amalienborg :)

I would venture to guess the Prince, as he was born first. Common logic in my head I'm more interested in seeing the gown solution - will it be two new gowns/replicas or the old gown and a new gown?

Elvis first, then Shirley. Simply because Elvis was the first one out.

Billed Bladet informs us that Mary's sister Patricia, her brother John, John Donaldson and Susan Moody and Amber Petty will be present at the christening. Jane is at home in Australia.

Mary is of course pleased to see her family and for that reason, says the article, M&F will not go to Marseliborg this weekend to celebrate QMII's birthday.

Jakob Lorentzen is the organ player at Holmens Kirke. He played the organ sunday when I sang at Holmens Kirke. He´s such a nice guy, but I don´t appreciate his way of playing, it´s very much staccato and not so flowing as I like it, but that´s my taste.

The TV2 Sputnik link will stop to buffer every so often - moreso as we get closer to the christening and more people are viewing the link I'm afraid. I get that two, but it usually kicks back up after about 10-15 seconds.
