I think they will have four names the same as Christian. Two historic names followed by the name of the grandmothers similar to how Christian has Henri John.

Ingrid Louise/a Margrethe Henrietta

I don't think any of the previous godparents will be choosen.

I think:
Siblings of Mary
Marie-Chantal
W-A or Maxima/Laurentien or Constanjin
Amber Petty
Martha-Louise

Sorry if someone disagrees with me but is Queen Elizabeth too old to be a godmother? I know there aren't rules about the age of godparents but a godparent is someone who can look after the baby/chield/teenager if his/her parents pass away. A godparent is a substitute to the father or mother and also someone who can help in the education of his/her godchilld. That's why I think is better to chose for godparents to the new Danish princess people close to her parents and also people who can look after her while she's growing. That's what I have learned and what uses to be like here. I don't know if it's the same with all the royal families. Queen Elizabeth is 81-years-old now and even if she have a long life like her mother I think she won't have the time or health to look after the new born princess.

Well that's what I was thinking too. But I didn't want to say anything. Yes, in the traditional sense of the word a godparent chosen for a normal child is someone that the parents trust and someone that could possibly look after the child. But I think in royal families it's really about honoring certain people. They always seem to choose 6 or 7 also. Unless of course it's a royal family of the Catholic faith which in that case it's only 2. I've noticed that royal families tend to do the regal thing and choose 1 or 2 or 3 of their counterparts from other countries(which is good for the child to be able to call someone that knows the pressures of living such a public life) and they also choose at least 2 or maybe 3 personally selected people that are close to them. I think it's a little different for them then it is for us commoners. But you are absolutely right I think Queen Elizabeth being chosen would not and should not happen. I can't see Queen Margrethe being okay with it either. Afterall her birthday just passed and she's quite a bit younger than Elizabeth.

What about William? Or maybe Edward and Sophie if they really want someone from the British royal family...however, I never had the impression that they were particularly close to the BRF, or is that jut me?

It will be ok if Margrethe would be chosen as a godmother since she's the baby girl's grandmother and it was the same with Ingrid Alexandra, Sverre Magnus and Leonor. They probably will chose someone from other royal family, not Norway or Sweden this time, but it's a subject related to other thread

A godparent in the Danish Lutheran church is not someone to look after the child if the parent passes away. At the baptism the sponsors (godparents) take on a moral obligation regarding the child's Christian upbringing, if something should happen with the child's parents before the child is grown.

The sponsors (godparents) have no legal rights, or obligation, to take care of, or adopt, the child if it should lose its parents.

I'm sorry but I really doubt that someone from the British RF would be chosen for a few reasons.
1) I don't think they are that close at all, that's not the impression I have.
2) Mary is from Australia which recognizes the BRF as their RF that would be weird, and a bit controversial in my opinion. I think and this is certainly only my opinion but after so much hype has been attracted by Mary marrying into the DRF I would think that the British might be a little sore or not to happy(just my opinion, yes, I believe jealous feelings exist everywhere and even between RF's, it's probable).
3) Plus there are so many other options even of royals that would make so much more sense. I think if you look at Christian's godparents there are some that are royals but all the ones chosen really make sense to me.

I actually think since Victoria of Sweden is Christian's godmother I think Carl Philip could possibly be chosen to be a godparent for the very first time. Plus there is a relationship and kinship between the Swedes and the Danes.

Well I have similar thoughts as some others in the thread. I think Prince Carl Philip would be a good choice. Princess Marie Chantal or actually anyone from the Greece RF is a good option. I think possibly more of Mary's side might be chosen this time around, one of her sisters and another good friend of hers. I also agree that Martha-Louise as another possibility.

I definitely believe 1 or 2 members of either Norway or Sweden's RF or one from each. And then 1 or 2 from Greece's RF. I also agree that we won't see any repeats of godparents. That would be a little silly to me when there are so many people on both sides of this family plus other royals to choose from.

I think they will go for something

a. with a royal feel or history
b. but also a bit offbeat and quirky
c. totally unexpected
d. with middle names Ingrid (g-grandmother), Margrethe (grandmother), Dagmar (morning sickness incident) or Henrietta (Mary's late mother)

My top choices that fit these prerequisites are:
Henrietta (Henrietta Dagmar Ingrid Margrethe)
Arabella (Arabella Ingrid Henrietta Margrethe)
Xenia (Xenia Margethe Henrietta Ingrid)
Matilda (Matilda Ingrid Dagmar Margrethe)
Olympia (Olympia Ingrid Margrethe Henrietta)

They probably won't use Margrethe or Ingrid as a first name because Ingrid's are everywhere in royal circles and it is quite possible that this girl will never be Queen anyway because Frederik and Christian are before her in line of sucession and they will both probably be very long lived, so it is a age factor (just look at Prince Charles of England, by the time Queen Elizabeth gives up her throne, Charles may be too old anyway and pass it on to William)

Number of Names

I just want to mention that in the Netherlands (Crown-)princess Amalia has got five names whereas her sisters only have got four names....
I suppose the little girl will get less names than her brother.

Royal Godparents do not usually serve the same functions as other godparents- they do not necessarily oversee their godchild's religious upbringing, nor do they serve as guardians if the child's parents die.

Other older royals who are godparents include King Harold V, who is the godfather of Princess Ingrid Alexandra. Harold is younger, yes, but in much worse health. King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia are the godparents of their granddaughter, Infanta Leonor.

Also, royal godparents don't even have to be of the same religion, or even the same country as their godchild! For Christian's Christening, his godparents were Prince Joachim of Denmark, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, Mrs. Jane Stephens, Mr Hamish Campbell, and Mr Jeppe Handwerk.
Frederik, Mary, Christian, and Joachim, along with the rest of the DRF are Lutheran. Haakon and Mette-Marit are members of the Church of Norway, which is the state religion. Victoria is a member of the Church of Sweden. Pavlos is Greek Orthodox. Jane Stephens is Roman Catholic, as was Mary prior to her marriage. I don't know about Hamish Campbell, an Aussie friend of Mary's, or about Jeppe Handwerk, an old friend of Frederik's. I'd assume that Jeppe Handwerk is Lutheran.

Maybe Prince William he is already a godparent to a child of Pavlos and it could be the link to the UK but i suppose we can only speculate and wait until the christening

As much as I know, she was presbyterian...which is belonging to the protestant churches. So not much of a change for her.
And I´d guess Jane is it too.

Mary was a Presbyterian until she married Frederik, then she converted to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Denmark.
