They may be ex-royals, but they are also family and I think that would trump being ex-royalty.

Caroline and Tanja are friends of Mary who have probably were asked to become LIW so Mary would have someone she knows and is comfortable with along at official functions. They aren't just "staff" and they certainly don't need the money.

Pavlos of Greece being the godfather of Christian disproves that. Alexia of Greece, as godmother to Isabella, too.
Thank you for replying Zonk, you replied exactly how I would. :)

Found some more family names of Mary's that could be useful:

Thomas Peter Archibald Frederik
(Thomas Melrose, Peter Donaldson, Archibald Horne)

and

Annika Catherine Patricia Jane (or Anneke, to honour Queen Anne-Marie also)
(Annie Horne, Catherine Smith, sisters Patricia & Jane)

Ancestry of Mary Donaldson

I could see Prince Thomas and Princess Annika (or Princess Anneke) with Christian and Isabella...

I love both of your suggestions but couldn't help thinking...

Annika - Anakin Skywalker
Lucas - George Lucas

Sorry! Half (or more) of you may not even know what I'm referring to!

I think they are more likely to use Annika/Anneke than Lucas...I associate Annika with Scandinavia because of Swedish golfer, Annika Sorensen...And it honours Annie (in Mary's family) and Anne-Marie (in Fred's family) while giving the name a fresh modern sound

First, to Taroonababe, obviously there are some very basic common knowledge that you don't have of the princely couple of Denmark.
Two great contributors to this forum already explained to you why Catherine Middleton that Mary and Frederik haven't meet even for one second is very unlikely to be godmother to their children, that CP Mary's LIWs are friends of her and Frederik before being mere "staff", and that Mary and Frederik value their "EX royal" cousins indeed since they are godparents to both Christian and Isabella.
Now, maybe you have some interesting names, or godparent suggestions to offer?


BTW I like:
Norah Mary Charlotte Friederike

Norah doesn't sound typical royal yet it's one of Queen Ingrid's beloved mother - Margaret of Connaught's names. Mary to honour CP Mary's grandmother to whom she was very close. Charlotte: just a sweet royal french name, and Friederike because it is a danish name, sounds regal and at least one of Fred's girls ought to be named after him.
Sorry for the little boy, I only had some girl crush today

You quite obviously do not know or understand you're own Crown Princely Couple if you say things like that.

Is it possible that the children will share a single set of godparents, or will they each have a completely different set?

They could share the same set of god parents, but the CPly couple could also choose to use the opportunity and make a set for each twin! Being a god parents is always an honour and it's hardly rocket science that family members and friends in particular would be honoured to become royal god parents! Danish children are allowed a maximum of five God parents, but royal children usually have more, because there are several 'considerations' to be made!

A thread for the christening has been created here. I'm surprised the christening is not listed on the CPC's website, only on Kongehuset.
