Crownprincess Victorias Paternal aunt is names Desiree. She is one of the so called Haga prinsesses

Sorry if I am pecky
Hehe you´re not being pecky at all. But I have a book about the queen and it says it was the most optional church to get married in since it was only royals, I believe, who are allowed to get married there and they also mentioned on tv that it was surprising that they didn´t choose that church to get married in. My overall point was that they always tend to go against the "norms" or what ppl expect them to do.

Thanks for showing me how to pronounce Desirée. I´ve never heard anyone with that name before (except Crown princess Victoria)

Desriee is not a common name amoung royals like Alexandra or Mary or Caroline is. But it has historical precident in the Danish royal house. Some of the past kings used it for their daughters.

It think it's even odds that Lille P will receive Margrethe as one of her names.

Better than even odds that Henrietta will figure into the mix.

I think we'll get a nod to Prince Henrik's family or maybe to CP Frederick (I'm thinking Frederikke?), and another name will be a wild card. I'm thinking Mary.

Why not two Princess Marys?

Queen Elizabeth II was named after her mother. Stranger things have happened!

I think the godparents will be: Patricia Bailey, Caroline Heering, Crown Princess Maxima, Crown Prince Pavlos, Princess Alexandra of SWB, and Jeppe Handwerk or Otto Reedtz-Thorit.

Not so sure about CP Pavlos as he already is godfather to Christian.

I would guess Patricia Bailey, Princess Laurentien from the Dutch Royal family, Princess Martha-Louise, and for the men, Prince Nikolas of Greece and maybe Prince Willem-Alexander or one of Fredrik's friends, also maybe Prince Gustav?
Was Prince Joachim one of Christian's godfathers?

Yes he was. And so was Jeppe Handwerk who is mentioned in another post.

Or is this a group thing now? I guess I am just traditional.
I thought tradition, at least in the US, was two of the same sex as the child and one of the opposite sex. So the new Princess would have two Godmothers and One Godfather. But the royals do it a bit different. They tend to pick at least half a dozen people of equal station (ie heirs to thrones are godparents to other heirs of thrones). I think they do this so that if there is politcial unrest and the royal has to flee the country, they have a few "options" of where they could possible go. Or maybe it's a throwback to the days of royals marrying royals and searching for suitible mates.

Last time it was

3 from the family:
CP Pavlos, Prince Joachim and Jane Donaldson.

2 friends:
Hamish Campbell and Jeppe Handwerk.

3 royals:
THR CP Haakon and CP Mette-Marit and HRH CP Victoria

This time I think it'll be:

3 from the family:
Alexandra S-W-B, John Stuart Donaldson(Mary's olderbrother) and Alexia of Greece.

2 friends:
Birgitte Handwerk and Peter Heering.

1 royal:
Havn't got a clue who this would be.. Maybe they'll replace the royal by one more friend, and in that case, the friend would be Helle Reedtz-Thott in my opinion ..

Carole Heering I don't think so, she is her LIW and I don't think that Mary would mix her job OF LIW and sucht a private relation with her daugther, she is working. I don't think Caroline will be godmother, I think she should't be!Despite beeing personal friend to Mary I think she should't be!

the reason they were surpriced that the crownprince was not married there was that Frederik is a sea officer like his grandfather. Holmens kirke is dedicated ppl from the navy where they can be buried, married and so on. That was why Margrethe was married in there because she was a daughter of a sailor (wrong word but sømand in danish) and Frederik is that too soo that was why they were surpriced by his choice of church

Would they name the baby Alexandra, because it might be associated with Countess Alexandra and taken as an offense? I thought of that, it's such a pretty name. Or maybe there are too many "Princess Alexandra's" out there.

Just because Amber won't be attending the christening doesn't mean she won't be named a godmother for Lilleprinsesse. I mean, Frederik is godfather to Ingrid Alexandra of Norway, but didn't attend her christening; so there is no reason why Amber can't be godmother even though she ain't flying half way around the world

I think she could have Alexandra as a second name maybe but maybe not as a first name since the countess is still friends with the royal family and it may be too weird with another Alexandra and that is´t a former in-law...

The name Alexandra is very royal and not uncommon for babies today so I think it would be very cute but a little unlikely
