Perhaps there is a family christening gown in Mary's family? Would be a nice touch if such a gown could be used as well.

Not that I know of, most probably they will get two new gowns for the little ones or dig up an old other gown.

The only other gowns that I know about is the one that Joachim and Alexandra had made for Nikolai and Felix and the one that Joachim and Marie had made for Henrik. Both by Henrik Hviid :)
Alexandra of Berleburg used the same gown as Mary and Fred for the christenings of her children :)

perhaps they make a copy of the original gown so they have 2 in future. Was this done in the UK when there was m a copy made of the original gown because it has become to fragil.

Good idea! Copy the original gown. Each twin wears one, then the old one retires and the new one can be passed down for future generations.

Yes, Stefan, I believe Edward & Sophie's son, James, wore a new copy of the old christening gown if memory serves.

That would be lovely, but I don't think Mary herself was christened (though I recall she was considered a member of the Presbyterian Church). I remember that the DRF website around the time of the wedding specifically mentioned the date and place of Alexandra's baptism in Hong Kong but left out any mention of Mary's baptism. But perhaps (hopefully!) there is a gown in Mary's parents' families which they could use.

I'm wondering if Mary will be at the New Year's Court festivities, or if she'll have given birth by then or if she'll be on bedrest.

She won't be, if Mary is due November/December time, she certainly won't be there.

If she is due to have the babies around the first week of December, I somehow think she WILL be at the New Years Eve festivities...she'll have weeks to recover, nanny-army, why not? If she hasn't had the babies by New Year's I still think she'll be there, hugely pregnant...what a way to induce a birth than to party and welcome in the New Year and how cool would a bit of birth drama be at something like that...Mary taken off having contractions, and what a cool birthdate that would be: 1/1/11? Yay...she'll be there, either way...The only way she won't be there, is if the babies are born late December, 28-31..maybe then there will be not enough time to recover, no incentive to go, too tired and preoccupied with two new babies...

It's probably just a case of waiting and seeing...she might be there, or she might not...the twins are in charge now!!! I am betting on and hoping for, New Year's Eve contractions starting at 11:11pm on Dec 31st, babies born couple of hours later around 1:01am (1st twin),1:11 (2nd twin), 1/1/11...Come on Mary, you can do it!

I think she will too. Poor Mary, huge with twins(Mary's version of huge), her back hurting IMO (we have already seen pictures of her holding her back) and having to look gorgeous which she will manage to do. She is a trooper. She does not give into things easily. The only way I can see her not making it is a doctor's order or just having given birth a few days before.

Guys, Mary is due in January.. Not November, December.. I think she will attend, even though she'll be heavily pregnant.

I don't believe she will attend; they probably just included her in the official list to avoid too many speculations about a December birth. No matter if she is heavily pregnant with the twins or just have given birth, there is no way she could be standing in line for hours shaking hands.

She should be on maternity leave by November time, if she attends the New Years events I'll think it ridiculous.
She'll be nine months pregnant and as UserDane said, standing in line for hours shaking hands will be painful.
Honestly it's not like she's needed at the event, she should be taking care of herself.

I dont see a problem is she atteneds the New Year events if she can. I would also assume she would have a chair if needed when get tired of standing for hours.
I dont expect Mary to attened all the events of New Year. If her due date is January and preg with twins, then its more likely for her to give birth a bit earlier than expected.

Why ridiculous? If she wants to attend, why not? It's not like she's ill or has any disease, she can do things just like other human beings. Obviously they won't make her stand for hours... It's up to her and what she feels to do!

Margrethe had a chair to sit on when her knee was either about to be operated or freshly operated, so my guess is, they would do it for Mary, too :)

She's due in January, she should be officially on maternity leave in November IMO, which means no royal engagements. I'm sure her doctors aren't going to advise doing a royal event whilst 9 months pregnant with twins are they?
To me, even if she has a chair, she shouldn't be there, this is the one time she can be a woman rather than a princess. Even Queen Elizabeth II missed two state opening og parliaments when she was pregnant.
She might not be ill or have a disease, but she is carrying twins.

Everyone says she'll give birth earlier than her due date, which would be December time. Which puts her out.

The twins of Prince Laurent and Princess Claire of Belgium were also expected in January (but 2006), but were born in December.
