Isabella is a nice name. Henrietta is awful. Ingrid is nice too . . .
But why does every princess need such a long name? IMO thats completely unnecessary! Princess Isabella would be enough!

I will throw in my two cents:

The best dressed ladies IMHO were Princess Benedikte and her daughter Princess Alexandra, both looked elegant (love the long pearl necklace).

Mary looked radiant, healthy and with a nice complexion, much more relaxed then I remember her from Christians christening. However I don't like the dress too much, though the colour is nice. After Christians christening many said that the headpiece was more suitable for summer... well, IMHO it isn't a succes in July either .

Mathilde looks different then usual, I am happy that she isn't wearing the regular Natan coat/suit. I wonder if it is Brussels lace btw, still... the overall effect isn't too nice, but that might be my personal taste. What is more important: IMHO a great choise for a godmother! A pity that the Duke didn't attend though.

Queen Margrethe...well, what can we say? I tend to 'forgive' her the awfull daytime clothing, so let's say that the flowers were at least appropriate for a summer event. The Prince was the only man in a light suit I believe, very summer-like too and as Henrik is an excentric I tend to 'forgive' him too .

Mette-Marit and Victoria... though they weren't dressed badly I don't find their creations very appealing/special. As one isn't there to attract attention I assume it is appropriate to wear something neutral like they do. Victoria's headpiece was funny though :)

I wonder why on earth Alexia borrowed a dress from her cousin, but especially, why would she borrow this particular dress? It does nothing for her!

All children are lovely, I like Joachims boys and little Christian looked very adorable in that suit and he behaved so well! The baby is rather pretty and I like her names, at least they are traditional and seem royal.

btw, did Prince Gustav and Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Witgenstein-Berleburg attend? I don't think I saw them.

Finally on an over-all note: the idea of a headpiece instead of a hat was rather refreshing and fun a few years ago, but when almost the entire younger female attendees are wearing a headpiece the originality fades. So next time I hope to see more hats!

Gustav did - WITH Carina Axelsson even though they are not formally engaged. A fact that was commented on in Danish TV - seems like the family sees it the way that they would have been engaged/married had it not been for that stupid will. I like that.

Did anyone notice that Mary had a new diamond ring on her right hand, I wonder if this was a gift for the birth of the new Princess?

In the video I thought it was a nice touch when Prince Henrik stopped to personally greet Crown Princess Victoria, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. Overall a lovely service. Christian was very well behaved

Henrietta was the name of Mary's mother who passed away. I think it is touching that they gave it to the little princess.

Crisscross1 I love that name Henrietta - it's really cute for a little girl to have and I also agree that it was lovely to have used this name after her mother.
It's tradition to have several names- My children have 3 also- not including their surname...

How come Countess Ingrid wasn't there? I know her parents and little Richard attended, but I didn't see Ingrid at all. What I thought was really cute was that the bishop invited all the children to come up to the font (or at least I think he did, I don't speak Danish) and the three little boys came up to watch. I was just imagining Nikolai and Richard whispering back and forth to each other during the ceremony!

Ohh...and I noticed that on the Dr.dk broadcast, and even on the Danish Royal Watchers page, they call him Friedrich? Is he going by his first name now? Oh, and who were those three absolutely beautiful little girls? On this site (Isabella) they are on the third page, second row.

When I was watching the Christening, I thought I saw Mary wink at someone, I dont think it was directed to either Christian or Frederik, does anyone know? Or am I just mistaken.

Gotta say that CP Victoria looked gorgeous -- tailored looks are wonderful on her! Now that's the way to dress!

yes, thought her dress was a bit similar in style to what Mary was wearing and beautiful. (I only did not like Caroline's shoes, light grey and boring)

A wonderful christening! I enjoyed to see all the many great pictures and shows on TV, so lovely to see how touched Mary and Frederik were again and how cute the baby was. But best of all was little Christian, a real young prince behaving the best possible - just think of other royal children at their sister's and brother's christenings - running around, needing attention.. Christian was great!

So it is Infanta Cristina's dress that Alexia borrowed? It looked so familiar to me and reminded me of Cristina's dress. She wore it during Alexia's wedding didn't she? Too bad it didn't suit Alexia as well as it did her cousin, who looked great in it!

I was surprised that countess Alexandra wasn't there. I guess, they really are not closed.

I thought Mary looked beautiful. They all looked so happy, and Christian & little Isabella were so well behaved. What a lucky family they are. Congratulations to them.
Thanks to all of you for such wonderful pictures & links.

I know but I noticed he did not greet Mary's father and stepmother. Isn't that incorrect?
