Red face

I have finally had a chance to look at some of the pics of the christening. The colors that were chosen to wear are all very similar the overall look came off kind of drab and unexciting to me. Not that everyone doesn't look nice, they do just need to punch up the color some, imo. And once again I know the term "low-key" has been overused with this christening but that was sure evident in looking at the pictures. Much more low-key and somewhat casual of an event. Christian's had a much more formal feel to it.

I'm curious about why the more low-key approach with this child? I'm always so used to seeing the Danish RF do things in a more grand manner but in my opinion many things surrounding this child have been done on a smaller scale thus far. Any thoughts as to why? I understand she isn't the firstborn but still when I look at other RF's(which I know I shouldn't compare but how can I not) they seem to do things quite similar for each child and I don't really notice that with the Danes and little Isabella. Quite possibly it is only me that thinks this!

I love the name Isabella but I think overall Mary could have done better. I think for the occassion she would have looked nicer with stockings on. But I guess she was going for a summer theme.

Thank you for your reply, Norwegianne. That's a charming custom which I've not seen before in either Catholic or Protestant churches. What a sensible and civilized place Denmark seems to be.

I must add that I thought The Queen looked splendid. Being so tall and willowy she can carry clothes which would seem a tad ridiculous on others, but on her, they show her imposing stature and great flair. I remember her at the wedding when I thought her absolutely spectacular. Mary's outfit looked much better on television than it does in the photos, I thought. One of the newspapers here said that the designer was Lithuanian, and I noticed another pretty young woman wearing almost the same design in what seemed to be grey or pale ice blue. Perhaps it's one of the new seasons styles?

The only sour note (for me) was the man who, before the event, was shown barbequing. I'm sure that he said that he was cooking kangaroo, which turned my stomach. Some people do eat kangaroo, it's true, but to eat a national emblem from our coat of arms, or watch someone else cook it....ick!

I like the name, although it sounds Italian, i don´t know if it´s a common name in Denmark.

I liked the colour of Marys outfit but it doesn't look like in fits. I like the idea of recycling the headpeace from Christian's christians christening a nice touch.

I've made a short little fan video for the first pictures of the christening. Take a look and let me know what you think.



Thanks!

I keep saying "Princess Isabella; Isabella and Christian; Frederik, Mary, Christian and Isabella" over and over in my head and sometimes outloud. I'm trying to get used to her name, because even though it's beautiful, it's hard to get used to her being "Isabella" when she's been "Lillepigen" for so long. I think it's like that when most babies are named. You have to get used to putting the name to the face.

HRH Princess Isabella of Denmark

Yay! I love Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik! Talk about my serious connection to Denmark! I am so happy that the lovely baby Princess has been named Isabella, which is my first name! Isabella is the Italian version of Elizabeth, which is CP Mary's second name (her name in Spanish would be Maria Isabel = Mary Elizabeth). Going back to my connection to Denmark, the other funny thing is that my fiance Christian is Danish and my maternal grandmother's name is Henrietta! Not my intention of giving anyone a historical breath of knowledge here, but I am not surprised that Isabella was one of the names on the Crown Princely Couple's list as it is a historical name. King Christian II married Isabella of Hapsburg, Infanta of Spain, Archduchess of Austria in 1515 (I love history as you can see). So it is the name of a past Danish Queen Consort.

Long live HRH Princess Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe of Denmark and her lovely family!

Edit: Sorry about the history part about the name. It had been mentioned already by another member. It's just that I am so excited I couldn't help pointing it out! And a big thanks to everyone who posted links to the pictures.

Isabella...mmm. Beautiful name for a regular girl - for a princess, it somehow seems too, precious, I don't know.

But whatever. After making us wait for all these months to announce the name (and yes I know, it's tradition), I can't exactly say that by the time, now, that they do announce it, that I still care. I somehow don't , time's moved on and there seems to be less, well, relevance now, as when the girl was born. Anyone get what I'm trying to say? That by the time they reveal the not-that-original-name, I could actually care less. Had they announced it at birth, I might have, on the other hand.

Christian looked lovely, Mary looked ok, Fred, handsome as usual but also with a usual clueless look in his eyes..
Crying at the ceremony? Without having watched it, it seems self indulgent somehow..cannot help my opinion..
good looking fam though!

I like the name Isabella , but I must confess I 've expected another one for this little princess. And I was more than amazed when I saw how much she changed in some weeks! I believed the baby should be black haired and black eyed...LOL...She was blonde with blue eyes. Hahaha.

Mary & Fred surprised many people with the name Isabella certainly not a name that entered my mind. Love the colour of Mary's dress but not sure about the style. Thought Prince Christian looked cute in his suit but why did he not have knee-hii socks on, his suit reminded me of the outfits the boys in the Sound of Music wore! Wish I was able to view the ceremony live, none of the links worked for me.

Thanks to all who posted pictures and links.

She is definitely not blonde - yet. She may become blonder but for now she is dark haired. Like all other infants her eyes are now blue(ish) but I think they will turn brown like Mary's.

Oh I like her name, very much.

I like that it is a name just for her. It is not someone else in the family's name (well, that I know of).

THEN she has her family names ... I find it very touching that Mary's mum is honoured first. Lovely.

Hurrah!

No, the Italian form of Elizabeth is Elisabetta. Isabella is a (maybe Italian) variant of the Spanish form of Elizabeth (Isabel), but it does exist as a name for itself in Italian.
I don't like the name Isabella... It reminds me of a schoolmate of mine who was nor beautiful nor nice.
