I think Mary didn't look so young and her skin does need a bit of sun, she is too white and for the firts time Princess Mary looks a bit fat to me, maybe my impression because she ussualy looks so so elegant and thin but maybe this dress is not suitable for her!

Wow! This is the first chance I have gotten to see the lovely pics! ISABELLA! What a beautiful name! I am impressed, to say the least. Here is my two cents:

Mary-I thought she looked beautiful, like a proud mother!
Frederick-Handsome, he seemed to be really emotional.
Christian-What a gentleman he will be one day! Very well-behaved child!
Margarethe-Her outfit was a little too busy for me, but hey, if she likes it that's OK. She seemed thrilled nonetheless.
CP Victoria-One word: Smashing!
CP Mette Marit- I've seen better, I've seen worse!
CP Mathilde- As always, beautiful! She is always sooooo elegant!

You could see that the Donaldsons arrived quite some time before they entered the chapel directly before the queen came. Thus I think they waited together with the queen and prince somewhere for the arrival of Fred & Co and then entered ceremonially.

Well, I think i was so used to "Lille Prinsesse" that I find her actual name rather odd...Isabella...nice but I thought Henrietta would go first. Isabella sounds too italian to me, thought it is, indeed, a beautiful name for a princess.

Mary looks quite normal to me...I think she looks better this size than supermodel (and unnaturally) thin. Have you noticed that she has a more curvy figure when the babies are small (probably because she is breastfeeding).

I don't think she looks "fat" at all.

I would have preferred Isabelle to Isabella but I think I picked the other 3 names. Anyway, still catching up on pics, so I can't wait to see the rest. I see Mary wore the (same?) floral aigrette.

Now Mary is fat ? Oh my where is this world going ...

My opinion on yesterdays fashions:

Mary: Very appropriate outfit, and beautiful purple color. She looked very sweet, and whereas I think the outfit on January 21, took the attention a bit away from the Christian, this one was perfect. Isabella was the best accessory, and Mary looked more radiant and happy than ever.

Magrethe: Loved it ! Noone else would have been able to wear that, but it was a perfect outfit for Queen Magrethe. She looked fabolous.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit: Lovely coat and I really liked the headband she wore. It's nice to see her finally dressing for her age. She looked very summery.

Crown Princess Victoria: Borring. I like Victoria, but that hairstyle did nothing for her. And that jacket is something I could wear on casual friday with a pair of jeans. Cute skirt though. Hated the headpiece.

Mary's stylist Anja: LOVED the flower in her hair, but didn't care much for the dress.

Helle Redtz-Thott: That woman is always so elegant and regal looking. But nothing beats what she wore on January 21.

Princess Benedicte: Lovely hat, Lovely coat, Lovely pink color.

Princess Mathilde: The coat was very HER, very "Mathilde", pretty borring, but what I don't understand is why she wore that headband. It didn't match at all ! (Very happy to see her as a godmother though)

Princess Alexia: Hated what she wore. And what she had in her hair too. (But again, I was very happy to see her as godmother)

Caroline Hering: Yeah, she looked fantastic, but didn't like the fact that she wore grey.. Who wears grey to a christening on July 1?

Alexandra S-W-B: As usual, she was stunning (She was too at Chris' baptism). Can't decide if she looks 20ies or 30ies or whatever, but I love it !

Carina: What a beautiful dress. Carina looked amazing, and the hat went well with.

I think everyone looked lovely!
Loved Mary's look, the color, the simple style, the shoes. Fred looked very handsome and Chrisitan was such a doll! So proper!
I totally adored the picture where Isabella is crying her little eyes out. It looks funny!

Chrisian's suit looked very nice for the occasion. However, the brown sandals did not go with the suit.

Mary is not as thin as before, which is understandable as she just had a baby. This weight suits her so much better, her face looks fuller and makes her look softer. I hope that she keeps the extra weight, I am NOT saying that she is fat, but you can tell that she gained a couple of extra pounds which I like. Anyways, the only thing I did not like is her hair do. I like it pulled back like the last time.

I feel the same. I really love her name (Isabella is one of my favourite names for a girl), but because they wait so long before announcing names it's strange adjusting!

Well, A big Thank you to everyone that took time to post pictures, videos, links, ect.
My over all opinion on everything:
Did not really like Mary's over all apperance. It was appropriate for the occassion, but I just did not like the look of it fo rher.
Fred: For some reason this guy always looks rumpled and frumpy to me.
The Queen: liked the colors, but the whole thing together was ghastly for the occassion.
Victoria: very lovely.
Mathilde: Very lovely as usual.
MM: nice, but boring as usual.
the pregnant lady that (I forgot her name right now) who is wearing a borrowed dress: She looks nice. And who cares if it was borrowed!
In general: I didn't really care about what people wore to the Christening. The looks that Fred & Mary gave to each other and to their children quite made up for what they wore. It looked as if it was a beautiful day and everybody looked extremely happy to be attending the event.
What more could people ask for?

For those who still haven't seen the entire christening or want to see it again, here is your chance.

Click here to watch the entire TV2 broadcast.

For those who still have dial-up, it will take a while to load. For the rest of us, the link will take less that 60 seconds.

Enjoy


*A big thank you to Jema @CPMB for providing the original link. We appreciate it, Jema, so thank you!*

Question: Does Isabella have dark blue or brown eyes??
On this site, royals.web-log.nl, if you scroll down (about mid-page) you find a bunch of photos from the christianing...and one really good close up of little Isabella, she's got her eyes wide open and she's sucking on her hand. Her eyes look dark blue.

They are blue now - but within the next couple of months they may very well turn brown (two of my own girls' eye colour did that while the last kept her blue eyes). I have a feeling that Isabella's eyes will turn brown

Christian has amazing blue eyes! I hadn't expected that he would get this intense blue colour.

I love, love,love Mary's necklace. And is she wearing a new diamond ring? I don't think I have ever seen her wear this one before.

I believe both are her "baby rewards." There's some discussion over in her jewels forum. Inquiring minds want to know!
